  1. I believe the character, Justine, to be a version of De Sade’s from the book The Misfortunes of Virtue but have yet to hear you mention it. Please discuss.

  2. We have talked about it among ourselves, but I am very much hoping that it is not supposed to represent her. The time period is too off for me and it doesn’t make sense in the grand scheme of the show to include De Sade, and not pull from a character in a similar “supernatural” style literary work. I am thinking that as we get to know Justine more, we will definitely have more thoughts on her throughout the season!!

  3. Fair enough. I guess I had her lumped in with “characters from the public domain.” That, and I devoured all the sources (Frankenstein, Dracula, Jekyll and Hyde etc) along with De Sade and Masoch as a teenager — a weird and lonely teenager. Thanks for your thoughts on the matter and, as always, I look forward to your next episode.
