“In 1940s Chicago, a young black man (Victor Love) takes a job as a chauffeur to a white family, which takes a turn for the worse when he accidentally kills the teenage daughter of the couple and then tries to cover it up.” Based on the 1940 novel by Richard Wright with the same title.
Of all things, men do not like to feel that they are guilty of wrong, and if you make them feel guilt, they will try desperately to justify it on any grounds; but, failing that, and seeing no immediate solution that will set things right without too much cost to their lives and property, they will kill that which evoked in them the condemning sense of guilt.

Been wanting to do some thing like this for a while after watching the season. I took some time away from the divide and stepped outside the romance that was created by the fandom to really look at the story and honestly, it seems to be a story of generations and a story of children. I honestly think the most beautiful end to this story is for Jack and the Scotsman to rest and celebrate in a quest and life well lived and fought for and let their daughters take up the sword. I truly believe Ashi is now pure of heart and will be Jack successor.
What a beautiful and fitting way to end the series with people who watched it as kids now watching it with their own. These last 3 episodes are truly the determining factor and I have faith it’s going to be a story of redemption, tragedy, and YES love. Maybe not the love story that’s preferred, but just as powerful.

These were the rhythms of his life: indifference and violence; periods of abstract brooding and periods of intense desire; moments of silence and moments of anger– like water ebbing and flowing from the tug of a far-away, invisible force.
