Time for a reckoning!
10/29/16 - 11/5/16
EPISODE ONE (10/29/16)
SUMMARY: It is the late 1800s, and in the stately home of
Jefferson and Constance, a card game is going on amongst
Jefferson and his friends in advance of a large dinner party.
The men boisterously denigrate Mildred, the African American
servant, while making racist comments about how much better
things were when the servants were slaves. They also humiliate
Constance, making her twirl to show off her dress. Though
Mildred fumes quietly, Constance is having a much harder time
controlling herself as the men make ever more racist and sexist
comments, denigrating suffragists, the Emancipation
Proclamation, and much more. Finally, Constance can take no more
and snaps, murdering all the men with a butcher's knife in an
explosion of gleeful fury. When Mildred sees what Constance has
done, she's quietly shocked, but, seeing the crazed gleam in
Constance's eyes, contains herself... and agrees to set about
cleaning up the bodies and making the place ready for the
impending dinner guests.

EPISODE TWO (11/5/16)
SUMMARY: Mildred is having a hard time sawing Jefferson's
leg off so she can cut him up and feed him to the pigs, per
Constance's orders. She's horrified when Jefferson wakes up, not
yet quite dead... and even more horrified at herself when,
panicking, she quickly smothers him to death. Soon, Mildred and
Constance are welcoming the first party guests - including
Jefferson's mother, Hortense, who is just as awful as her son.
When she insists on seeing Jefferson, Constance gleefully sends
her out back to the pig sty, where Hortense shrieks in horror at
the grisly sight of her son's remains... while Constance tells
Mildred it's time to flee.
