This episode just did something to my soul. First off the actors in this show did not get the due credit. Blair Underwood is amazing. The raw emotions in this episode are noteworthy. The topics this series hits on was before it’s time or perhaps the right time. If I could create just half of the amazing stories and truths this series shared, I could die feeling I accomplished something great.
