Episode 9: Heartbreak and Hostages (Season 2, Episodes 5 & 6)

April 30, 2021

Episode Notes

Sarah stans Lucienne, while she and Ben debate Sarah’s (i.e. the character, not the host) affair. Beriot encourages. . . dancing! Hortense just gets worse. The prostitutes in the brothel are the most effective resistance. Ben tells true stories that resemble the show—plus the greatest obituary he’s ever read: https://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/10/world/europe/robert-de-la-rochefoucauld-noted-for-war-exploits-dies-at-88.html
