Recap: Dickinson Season 2 Episode 9 ” I like a look of Agony”
The episode begins focusing on two tea-parties organized by Emily’s mother. The first tea party is Edward’s Investors Meeting. The other is a college reunion. The episode opens up with an argument between Edward and his son Austin. The matter is Edward’s decision into investing in Sam Bowel’s Newspaper. The decision certainly doesn’t go well with Austin. He believes that his father still treats him like a child. The argument between father and son ends with Edward mocking Austin. He calls him a failure and makes fun of his carefree life that he is living.
Before the argument gets any further, Sam Bowles arrives with news and a great plan. He talks about John Brown’s rebellion in Harper’s Ferry and insists to capitalize on the situation. While Edward and Bowles discuss over it, Austin makes his leave. While Austin is leaving the house, he comes across Henry who has been a longtime supporter of Henry Brown. Now, that John Brown’s rebellion is in process, his life is in danger. He says his final goodbye to Austin before leaving.
The Tea Parties
After the conversation with Henry, Austin gathers his friends to talk about civil war. He believes this might be the last time they are seeing most of each other as they can’t tell the consequences of war. Emily’s mother starts playing the role of the perfect hostess. The group discusses recent events with the newspaper group. Some agree to disagree with the thoughts. They try to avoid talking about war by remembering their college days. At last, Austin tries to put his thoughts which had an impact after his goodbye to Henry.
