Ripper Street Season 2 Review “A Stronger Loving World”

This week’s Ripper Street starts out looking like a battle is brewing between London’s Christian and Jewish communities. A church is burned. A synagogue is vandalized. Reid isn’t sure where to start looking for the culprits until he finds leaflets circulating through White Chapel that advocate hate crimes against the two religious groups and the Irish.

While the backdrop of this episode is the religious conflict, the main story revolves around Drake and his wife, Bella. As we saw last week, Bella has a past that she has kept from Drake. We know that Drake also has a past, his relationship with Rose, which he can’t entirely shake. We start with Drake finding an upset Rose in an alley. As usual, Rose bemoans her lot in life and Drake tries to comfort her. When Drake returns home, he finds that Bella is missing.
