What to expect in Gentleman Jack Season 2 Episode 7?
Gentleman Jack Season 2 Episode 7 is the penultimate episode of this 8-episode series. The title of the episode was revealed by the network as What’s All That Got to Do with Jesus Though?. The episode is reported to be directed by Fergus O’Brien and written by Sally Wainwright.
The official synopsis of the episode states, “With the backing of an elite York lawyer, Anne and Ann press on with the proposal for a division of the Walker land, meeting Captain Sutherland’s every obstruction head-on. But Ann’s determination to secure her share of the family estate sends shockwaves through her family. Soon it isn’t just the Priestleys who suspect Anne of being behind the proposal.”
In the episode, viewers can anticipate seeing that the Walker estate might be divided, and Anne and Ann being stuck in the middle. Ann and her sister Elizabeth might try to divide the land and properties between them. Captain Sutherland, Elizabeth’s husband, is growing dubious of Ann’s ideas. Moreover, Ann tries to be accommodating, coming up with many division options in the hopes that Sutherland might accept.
However, Sutherland will become enraged when he hears that the estate deeds have been hidden at Anne’s home, Shibden Hall, and he becomes even more convinced that Ann is being duped. The estate division has further ramifications, as some properties must be evacuated before they can be completed. The school and the Sunday school are housed in one of the buildings, which is operated by Ann’s cousins William and Eliza Priestley, who seems to be quite unhappy.
However, Anne, who believes the Priestleys are responsible for Ann’s latest anonymous letter, proposes that Ann start a different school. Despite her father Jeremy’s cautions that she might damage her plans for her hotel and casino complex, Anne continues to work on them with a new architect Mr. Harper.
In true Anne’s style, she will wrangle a deal with another magistrate while trying to secure a license without having to go through her adversary Christopher Rawson. Fans have been speculating that by the end of the episode as the season progresses because they believe there will be plenty of drama in the finale episode of this season, but glimpses from the show suggest that the season will come to a satisfying conclusion that the episodes have been building towards for so long.
