I could have been arrested today. You just think life’s one big joke. Do you see me laughing? I need that cash. And your family need you to stay legal. Well, I’ll act any way I see fit. Well, don’t drag me into it.
I just adore when our boys accidentally let slip that they talk to each other to other villagers during affair days.
Like Aaron congratulating Vic on her culinary school birthday treat, Its bleeding obvious Robert the smug doting brother he is has been bragging about this present to Aaron for ages. Lucky Vic grants Aaron a gift horse and assumes it was Adam who told him about the birthday present. Its just the sweetest thought, Aaron and Robert talking about his little sister together, cuddling up, trying to think of presents.
Robert trying to find Vic/ Adam when they eloped by hiring Harriet to spy on Cain, Accidentally revealing that Cain has form, that he helped Aaron out of the country, so he could do the same for Vic and Adam. Its so obvious that Aaron has whispered his story to Robert in the dead of the night, how lonely he felt in France, and how he needed his family around him, how Cain helped him.
It’s just so amusing to me that an affair is meant to be about sex but them two literally met up so often just to have a quick kiss and to talk about their problems.
Underground, the television drama about runaway slaves on a quest for freedom in 1857, wasted no time in showing audiences that their preconceived notions about Harriet Tubman were all wrong.

Think Cicely Tyson’s 1978 portrayal of the famed abolitionist in A Woman Called Moses, where Tubman spends half her time on screen in tears, praying for strength as she shuffles behind white abolitionists.
But Underground, which debuted its second season on WGN Wednesday night, turns that portrayal of female revolutionaries like Tubman upside down. Read more (3/9/17 3:55 PM)
A Line of Hamlets - Shakespeare Live! (Tim Minchin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Harriet Walter, David Tennant, Rory Kinnear, Sir Ian McKellen, Dame Judi Dench and Prince Charles teach Paapa Essiedu how to say “To be or not to be!”)
“#blackhistorymonth #harriettubman would make her escapes on Saturdays, which bought her a one-day head start because wanted posters could not legally be posted on Sundays – and twenty-four hours was all she needed to leave her enemies in her dust. Despite the fact that there was a $40,000 reward for the "black ghost” (a figure that today equates to a cool $4 mil), she was never caught, never defeated, and never lost a single person she escorted to freedom. #badass"-Loni Love
