Terrific episode! I think the writers did a great job highlighting the stereotypes and prejudice that still exist today. Lizmc is right, carding is a really big issue right now. The presumption is guilty, because of race. Despite making my blood curdle, CC Davis`s attitude and behaviour were an excellent representation of the racial wall that blacks faced.
The level of detail was outstanding. Did anyone else notice the "black boy" statues outside the Thompson house? My neighbours told me a story at Christmas. About 10 families all moved into their new homes between July and October 1968 (and most of them are still here!) One family put out a black boy statue until a black family moved in across the street about 2 weeks later. Yikes, awkward!
I have to admit to being stumped about the wound on Frank Parker's head because it wasn't mentioned at all until the very end!! How odd.
Great episode! Watched the Atlantic broadcast and I'm watching again.......interesting they bring in the issue of carding, which is a huge issue today.......
Excellent episode. Loved the conversation between William and Rebecca at the end.
Yes, that scene will, I thing become one of the most memorable in all of Murdoch........I loved that we got to see Rebecca outside the morgue and as such a significant part of the plot.....they are doing a good job of developing her character.
