Before she leaves, Delaney tells Lorna, "You will hold out," and reassures her that he will recruit the East India Company to rescue her. He stays true to his word, though not without forcing viewers to sit through yet another darkly lit, leering sequence of a female character being stripped naked, humiliated, and threatened with sexual assault. If you regularly endure similar scenes on Game of Thrones, this one will be regrettably familiar. And just as tedious.
After her release, Lorna for some reason agrees to team up with Delaney, who basically admits that he just put her in this dangerous situation to play his two rivals -- the East India Company and the British government -- against each other. Despite that, she's taken a liking to our top-hat-loving hero, exchanging knowing glances with him and trading banter with his weary butler, Brace. The three of them have a pretty odd dynamic, but, unlike most people on this show, they at least seem to enjoy each other's company. I'd watch a sitcom where they hang around their dusty house and get into hijinks.
