    Episode Title: “Smells Like Bear”

    Synopsis: John and Onion continue their fund-raising mission, this time heading to Canada on foot. After seeing true freedom for the first time and frustrated with Brown’s increasingly irrational behavior, Onion demands freedom from Brown’s army. But, when the legendary Harriet Tubman endorses Brown in a room full of new recruits, Onion realizes that he may be more invested in the cause and the “old man” than he thought.

    I really didn’t expect to like this series that much. Ethan Hawke devours all of his scenes.

    This was the first episode for Maya Hawke, who was great as John Brown’s daughter, Annie. It makes me wish that she’d been around for earlier episodes. She looks just like Uma, which is wild, and this isn’t her first acting role. The conclusion is near, so it’s necessary to have the Harpers Ferry storyline play itself out, as well as reveal Onion’s secret. Can’t wait for the last two episodes!

    From an interview, that Maya gave, it seems like she only did one episode.

    This is the point in the series where things are reaching a boiling point and arriving at its final, inevitable conclusion. I do agree with one of the early criticisms of the series that said the Brown sons were fairly indistinguishable here, b/c as they’re getting killed off, I have little interest or impact felt in their demises b/c so little was done to develop them as individual characters. That’s why Maya Hawke popped as much as she did in her episode due to the stark contrast. Ethan Hawke is still incredible and more unhinged, and Joshua Caleb Johnson has a reliable screen presence that has carried most of the content well. I’m waiting for the big reveal about Onion to everyone, but I think characters referred to Onion as both “he” and “she,” so maybe that’s not coming. Finale next week.

    I’m sad it’s ending already, such a phenomenal show.
    Let’s hope the finale bring us home

    Beautiful end to the series. Ethan Hawke has fully earned every award that’s in store for him with this career-best performance.

    ‘Last Words’ was a very sweet ending to this excellent series.   That final talk between the old man and Onion was perfect.
