Japan - Autumn Leaves Geisha

'For I Have Sinned'

Welcome to Forever Knight Episode discussion. We're starting at the beginning, and depending how it goes, we'll do one to two eps a week. You can last week's post for Dark Knight here. Next up will be Last Act -- look for it next Tuesday.

For I Have Sinned, Air Date: May. 1992

Another serial killer, this time preying on young women who all attend the same church. In order to catch him, Nick must try to overcome his fear and loathing of the Church and its symbols. Meanwhile, flashbacks to 15th Century France show Nick's encounter with a young peasant girl doomed to become a martyr when her claims that God spoke to her result in the Church branding her as a heretic and condemning her to burn at the stake. Nick offers her his version of immortality, but she refuses in favor of her own belief in life after death. ~ recap and quotes via tv.com

Confessing Childhood Traumas

After commenting on Pat's post here about how I don't handle reading gruesome torture scenes well, let alone write them, I had my own flashback [g] Can't believe I'd forgotten! When I was in 5th grade, the teacher read the class a story. It was about the Plains Indians and the Sun Dance ritual of driving something through the shoulder and hoisting them up in the blazing sun for hours. Obviously, the story was way more detailed than that. Very descriptive, and along with my overly vivid imagination, not a good mix. I fainted.

The other violent scene that stands out from my childhood is when I was seven and read Jane Eyre for the first time. The part where her cousin makes her stand and throws a book at her, splitting her head open. That still bothers me to this day, and whenever it appears in TV form, I can never watch that part. Makes me all cringy.

Timing

Today's Forever Knight episode up for discussion was 'For I Have Sinned'. What was today the anniversary of? The death of Joan of Arc.

1431: Joan of Arc burned at the stake
Having led the French army in a momentous victory over England at Orléans during the Hundred Years' War, Joan of Arc was charged with heresy and witchcraft and, on this day in 1431, was burned at the stake.


No, I didn't plan it that way!
