I Love the Immersive, Gritty Aesthetic of the Show

Why Dumbarton Didn’t Panic

I think it’s important to consider the doctor’s personal experience with James and torture. After the street assassination attempt nearly killed him we find out the good doctor had him followed to see if the British empire/EIC really wanted him dead.

You Asked If We Wanted James to Live or Die?

Good afternoon Gents, Just a couple of thoughts for you but I must ask this first because it seems another mystery is afoot – what happened to The Rog?! Did he get “cholera”? Was he gunned down at the OK Corral during his Tombstone trip? Or did he actually just...

Prediction and Process

Prediction: James Delaney will be alive at the end of episode 8. End game: Violence, destruction, and life-shattering vengeance for all the people responsible for the derailing of James’ life in 1800 which led to him going to Africa in 1802. If he “wins” this, we will see him, Zelpha,...

On the End Game

Hello from your regular listener, sporadic river-ranter. I’ve just finished the last episode. “Born to grunt” is a wonderful slogan for a t-shirt. Or a tombstone. To answer your question: I think James should die, it makes a lot of sense plot-wise, and I honestly don’t see any other satisfactory...
