#1 - The Imposter

Titanic: Blood and Steel - Season 1 - Episode 6

The accident has created a terrible workload. Tensions between classes escalate. Pirrie and Michael finally manage to come to an understanding that appease the workers, but not magnate Charles Stokes. Unfortunately, Conor MacCann, Emily's younger brother, is driven towards more extremist acts after he gets fired. The Fenian movement, a Catholic terrorist group, takes Conor in. Mark suggests building a double hull for the Titanic. But Pirrie is unimpressed. It would mean wasting too much time. To try and forget his many concerns, Mark manages to take Sofia away for a romantic weekend. It is a time when love flourishes, giving both of them the illusion that everything will be fine. Henry Carlton has discovered Mark's real identity. Carlton is furious that his daughter, Kitty, has been in a relationship with a Catholic impostor. Kitty is disowned and she decides to leave Belfast. As soon as Mark comes back he is summoned and fired.

#2 - A Crack in the Armor

Titanic: Blood and Steel - Season 1 - Episode 10

Titanic's sister ship, the Olympic, is damaged again. Mark can't leave. Sofia also has to postpone her plans. Pietro has been injured at work and she must look after him. Mark and Andrews look for new solutions. The gashes in Olympic suggest that the steel is just too weak. Eventually they have to concede that the steel, combined with the sheer scope, is just not good enough. The double hull would have protected the ship - Perhaps the bulkheads too. For this to become a serious problem, Titanic would have to crash into something very solid. An occurrence that seems remote on the Atlantic Ocean. While Mark and Andrews slowly come to their conclusions, Emily is sentenced to an astoundingly unfair six months in jail. But another terrible event occurs: Conor is shot dead while the Unionists start advocating a new, separate State, Northern Ireland.

Walter's death has changed the whole picture. Malcontent breeds amongst workers, especially at the shipyard. Larkin has been forced to leave the city. Andrea, to Sofia's embarrassment, is staying at her house. The Chairman, Lord Pirrie, is shocked, and fights with his former friend Henry Carlton – Kitty's father – whom he holds responsible. He seeks an understanding with Michael MacCann, one of the leaders of the workers' movement. They are both intelligent and moral men. Mark keeps his mind on his job and finally identifies the problem with the steel: impurities. But the steel complies with regulations. Eventually Thomas Andrews will see his point, and a new relationship will form. But work is not Mark's only occupation: he finally kisses Sofia. As he goes back to his father, he is assaulted by Bernard Doyle. He accuses him of having left behind his fiancée, Bernard's daughter Siobhan, who died at childbirth.

Titanic: Blood and Steel - Season 1 - Episode 8

The high staked General Elections are drawing closer. The magnates have their own candidate, the Unionist extremist Albert Hatton. The fact that Pirrie does not support Hatton makes him an enemy of the ruling class. Michael is campaigning for Labour. His sister Emily helps him. But she gets arrested for giving out leaflets. This is a political measure, and Emily is only the scapegoat. On the ship front, Mark's proposition to erect higher bulkheads to defend Titanic is crushed by Ismay, the Chairman of White Star Lines, the company Titanic is being built for. When the elections occur, Albert Hatton wins a handsome majority. The third candidate, Michael, only gets a very small number of votes. Protestant and anti Home Rule extremists fume with rage and hatred, and Michael is assaulted, cruelly beaten and forced from Belfast. His brother Conor has become a terrorist and has taken lives. Even more disgusted with the ways of Belfast, Sofia now wants to leave and go to London. She asks Mark to go with her. But Mark is forced to make a choice between Sofia and searching for his daughter. He chooses to stay in Belfast.

Titanic: Blood and Steel - Season 1 - Episode 5

Mark's story is fully revealed. When he lived in Belfast, he had a girlfriend, Siobhan Doyle. She was supposed to follow him but never did. Siobhan died soon after. His father told him she had died of TB. Instead, she had died at childbirth without him ever knowing. Mark realises how much Siobhan suffered, and is heartbroken. She was sent to a convent. To his utter shock, he finds out that the child survived: a baby girl. He tries to find her, but the nuns will not tell him anything. An accident occurs that forces him back to work: RMS Olympic, a ship in the same class as Titanic, has had a serious accident. Mark is asked to study the implications. Mark's new discoveries are now less important that delivering on schedule. Pirrie and Andrews discover that Mark Muir is a Catholic, but guard his secret.

Losing his job is not Mark's only problem. Sofia knows his truth. Mark tells her everything. Even about Siobhan and the baby. She eventually forgives him. It is also time for Mark to reconcile with Sean. Mark's situation seems to get better still when JP. Morgan arrives. When told the reason why his chief metallurgist has been fired, Morgan has him immediately reinstated. Mark starts looking for a viable alternative to the double hull, an alternative he finds in higher bulkheads. General Elections are in sight. Home Rule for Ireland is at stake. The possibility that London putting a stop controlling the island is strongly opposed by the Protestant minority, which fears the power the Catholic majority would get. Emily persuades her brother Michael to stand for Parliament, and Pirrie helps and supports his main counterpart in the shipyard. Sofia wants to make the relationship with Mark public. Mark knows that this would mean new tensions that could ostracize him. Above all, though, Mark is trying to protect Sofia. She would be fired immediately. But Sofia is independent. She is tired of Belfast. She goes back to studying, trying to create a better future for herself. A sad coldness slowly builds between them and, quite unexpectedly, Mark has news of his daughter.

The time has come for the great ship to leave for the New World. As Morgan always wanted, Titanic's maiden's voyage will become one of the first great PR events.

The group also includes Jack Lowry, a young riveter we met since the beginning of the story. Violetta with the baby, whom Michael MacCann, has come back to marry. Joanna will be onboard – and so will Kitty, by now an acclaimed actress. A little girl by the name of Sarah, with her mother, will board Third Class. Neither Mark nor his daughter are aware of their presence onboard the Titanic. And, while the ship sails for New York, and Mark and Sofia finally find happiness and reconciliation, we are left asking ourselves: who amongst our characters will survive the great disaster?
