Taboo Season 1 Recap
Proceeding his independent inquiry into the East India Company, George Chichester discovers that the slave ship’s name was changed from ‘Cornwallis’ to ‘Influence’ to conceal her true identity; that she was recorded as being empty when she set sail on her fatal journey; that she only had a skeleton staff; and that Sir Stuart Strange’s brother purchased a banana plantation in Antigua. Meanwhile, Brace informs Delaney that his mother was committed to the Bedlam insane institute after attempting to drown him as a child and that his father saved his life. Delaney has Dumbarton remove Thorne’s body, which is subsequently buried in a Catholic funeral after Zilpha murders him.
Farmer Ibbotson confesses to the local Catholic priest, who then informs the Company of the location of Delaney’s gunpowder factory. Delaney murders Ibbotson by removing his tongue and placing his body in the chapel for the shocked priest to find. Delaney retrieves his gunpowder by barge and transports it to his ship before the Company’s troops can seize it. Benjamin Wilton, a company official, meets Delaney at the pier and delivers a letter from Sir Stuart declaring war on them. Delaney’s ship then explodes, leaving a fiery hulk in its wake.
Delaney responds by killing and cutting out the heart of the man who was meant to be guarding the ship. He then becomes inebriated and appeared to be on the verge of drowning. Winter hands him another bottle as he heads out into the Thames, and he reconsiders. He wakes up head down in the muck the next morning and discovers Winter’s body not far off.
