‘The Singapore Grip‘ reaches its fourth episode tonight on ITV.
In episode 3 Singapore’s residents were given a stark awakening to the realities of war by the Japanese bombing the city, but Walter remained obstinate despite the growing danger.
After confiding in Joan (Georgia Blizzard) about the cruciality of a union with Matthew (Luke Treadaway), the Blacketts intensified their campaign to secure his share in the company. While Vera (Elizabeth Tan) nursed Matthew through his fevered delirium, the Major (Colm Meaney) was confronted by the Chinese Protectorate, who insisted that she is dangerous.
Charlie (Joe Bannister), Sylvia’s (Jane Horrocks) brother, re-joined his regiment and headed to defend the vital Slim River position against the Japanese, while Ehrendorf (Bart Edwards), reeling from Joan’s rejection, volunteered to assist.
The synopsis for episode 4 is:
Following his controversial announcement, Matthew is given the cold shoulder by the Blacketts as they prepare for the company’s jubilee. While he and Vera get closer, Matthew promises to help her leave Singapore. Walter petitions the Governor in an attempt to solve his problems, and he and Joan conspire to remove the threat Matthew poses to their plans.
The Japanese tighten their grip on the continent and Sylvia’s brother, Charlie, and Ehrendorf are caught up in the fighting. After putting their past differences aside to evacuate their women, the Langfeld’s find themselves at the mercy of the Blackett household.
