    Show is so good. Love this stuff. Grew up in the lower Hudson valley on the east side of the river (other side of West Point). Seeing the chain was awesome. Fuck Arnold

    Such a good show. One of my greater fears is that this show gets cancelled this year.

    Usually I don't care for love stories or whatever, but major andre was such a great character.

    Did you miss the part where Washington said that he never said that. It was what they used as propaganda? Or did I mishear that?

    He definitely said that. Several different versions of what happened, but I like the way the show draws a parallel to Andre's experience

    On mobile, but there is a ton of literature on Andre. He was a fascinating dude and apparently a baller like they portrayed him. His self-portrait that he drew the day before dying is at Yale, and a monument was erected at the site of his death. He is now buried in Hero's Corner in England. There is even a lengthy account from someone who walked next to him on the way to the gallows. His last lines on the show were actual quotes. I didn't want to spoil things for myself before now, but the events leading to his capture and his death seem to have been almost verbatim from accepted accounts.

    There are letters from Washington where he talks about his admiration for Andre, and Alexander Hamilton had a great quote upon his death. Mindblowing to think he was only 30.

    Ive watched John Adams every 4th since its release. Until now, that has been my favorite revolutionary war series....not sure I still feel that way after seeing Turn. I'll watch John Adams again this week to see how they stack up

    Im reading the Alexander Hamilton biography the musical is based on.

    Just got to the part that covers this last episode. Just finished reading about them finding Arnold's wife in hysteria in the room and how they were debating if Andre was a spy or just a captured officer.

    Hamilton lobbied very hard for Andre to have an officer's death. He obviously lost that debate.

    The guy that played Andre may have been the best actor in the show.

    Going to miss the character.

    Random fact but he apparently has a child with Neve Campbell. I don't recall ever seeing him in anything before, but he was in the first Captain America. He was great on Turn.

    Worried about this myself. It was 50/50 to be brought back for this season and it looks like viewership was down compared to season 2.

    That being said, I am now nervous as to how they could possibly top season 3 with what I know is left historically.

    Edit:

    Unless they focus on the hunt for Arnold in NYC; however, we all know how that ends and I feel like that would be a shitty season anyway.

    The Arnold subplot is one of the least interesting to me, anyways. Maybe I'm alone there.

    Yeah, but you can't tell the Andre story without it. But yes, I agree with your stance on Arnold.

    Oh for sure, it's important. But the possibility of focusing a whole season on it . . . bleh.

    Can't tell the story of the Cuper Ring without Arnold. Arguable it's biggest discovery. The other being thwarting a sneak attack on NYC.

    I dont think Arnold will be much of the focus. He was pretty marginalized by the British after defecting.

    Gotta think season 4 is just going to wrap up the war in general right?

    Yes. And one way they can tie Arnold in was that he was pleading Cornwallis to move his troops out of Yorktown and Cornwallis just laughed him off like all the British did.
