Following the urging of one of our group members (and my own curiosity and interest as well, of course) I watched the second episode of Alias Grace to better understand Grace and the symbolism of the Apple.
As someone mentioned in another thread, I found the character of Mary Whitney most intriguing. I do not wish to divulge too much for any students who have not yet seen as far as the second episode. With that said, I was startled and taken by how Mary compressed such dark and light poles into such a compact narrative and character. Light and dark, glee and tragedy, potential and finality, all at once.
