EPISODE ONE (10/12/13)

SUMMARY:  During World War II, an arrogant Nazi commandant appoints Henri - who he insists on addressing as "Heinrich" - the head of the notorious Pigalle district.  Henri is a pimp, and his friend and trusted second Franco is having an affair with his ex-wife, Cosette.  Henri is enraged when Yves has blackened the eye of one of his girls, Marie.  Henri might have been able to forgive Yves... but Marie is his niece.  Henri strangles Yves, then, while apologizing to the trembling Marie that he cannot provide a better life for her, advises her that she will need to become tough, and apologize to nobody, or she won't last long in this world.

Franco (Donal Thoms-Cappello) and Henri (Ezra Buzzington). Henri talks to his ex, Cosette (Kara Emry). Yves (Will McMichael), Henri and a black-eyed Marie (Monica Greene). Henri beats and kills Yves for harming his niece.
