Jesus Christ Rik Rankin. That was some top tier acting across the board. Fuuuuck. The rest of the episode was semi-whatever, though was sort of "hmmm" about Lord John covering for the regulators. You know he did it for Jamie though because Murtagh and Fergus are who they are. But it really, really compromises him, and I'm not sure I like that.
I, for one, think it's waaaay more dramatic in the book. I still don't understand why I don't loathe Steven Bonnett. Maybe it's just the actor.
Anyway, one of the better episodes of the season for me. I was riveted and it's been ultra-rare this season that's happened.
