The BBC has uploaded 2 powerful clips for next week's penultimate episode of Banished. No Joseph sadly, but Major Ross features in What's On TV's preview of the episode.

Why are the convicts here, Governor?' asks Reverend Johnson. 'As punishment, or for punishment?' Another day, another moral dilemma for poor Governor Phillip. This time, a violent encounter between a convict and an officer has put the camp's leader in a quandary – should the offender pay, or are the grim conditions of the colony partly to blame? Meanwhile, Major Ross continues to veer between callously evil and amazingly tender, and James has to endure the darkest night he's known since arriving.

A thrilling episode that will leave you desperate for next week's finale. 

If you missed episode 5, it is available on iPlayer.
