Sam involves the Dickinson home bearing the news of John Brown’s raid at Harpers Ferry on this EXCLUSIVE preview of the brand new episode of ‘Dickinson.’ Sam predicts a civil warfare as a nervous Austin appears on.
The penultimate episode of Dickinson season 2 drops Feb. 19, and HollywoodLife has an EXCLUSIVE sneak peek of the episode. A really excited Sam (just a little too excited, no?) reveals as much as inform the Dickinson males in regards to the “absolutely crazy news coming out of Virginia” in the mean time. He reveals John Brown tried to raid Harpers Ferry, which piques Edward’s curiosity.
“The guy thinks of himself as some kind of biblical prophet,” Sam (Finn Jones) says. He provides that John Brown has “all the makings of a celebrity.” Austin (Adrian Blake Enscoe) presses for extra details about the raid.
“Well, turns out he formed a ragtag little army and tried to raid the federal arsenal down at Harpers Ferry,” Sam explains. “I’m told his plan was to instigate a massive slave rebellion in the South.” Now Austin is nervous. “Did it work?” he asks. Sam replies, “Of course not. It was a total sh*t show. Most of his men were killed. The rest of them, including Brown, will be in custody soon. Brown will be hanged for treason. I wouldn’t be surprised if this heats things up all the way to a civil war.”
Edward (Toby Huss) believes there’s no means a civil warfare will occur. “Cooler heads will prevail,” Edward says. Sam doesn’t suppose so. “This country’s a tinder box, and this could be the match that lights it,” Sam tells Edward.
Ultimately, Sam thinks this complete state of affairs may really be “good for us.” That’s when Austin intervenes to ask what meaning. “War sells papers, my friend. War sells papers,” Sam stresses.
As everyone knows, a civil warfare is strictly what occurs. The American Civil War breaks out in 1861 and lasts till 1865. The present has been constructing as much as the breakout of warfare. Austin has been serving to Henry and Hattie print their abolitionist paper, The Constellation. In the earlier episode, Henry revealed that the cash from the paper gross sales was being despatched to John Brown.
The title of the episode is “I Like a Look of Agony.” The new episode of Dickinson drops Feb. 19 on Apple TV+.
