Bastard Executioner Sneak Peek: Is a Teen Girl About to Lose Her Head?

If The Bastard Executioner‘s Baroness Love ever time-traveled to the mid-1980s, we’re betting she’d be a big fan of Janet Jackson’s “Control” — particularly the tart zinger, “I call my own shots, thank you.”

In the following exclusive sneak peek from tonight’s episode (10/9c on FX), Flora Spencer-Longhurst’s recently widowed character is presented with troubling news about potentially treasonous acts by local teenagers. But when her late husband’s right-hand man Corbett (Stephen Moyer) assumes she’s going to blindly follow his advice, her response is as chilly as the cold Atlantic waters she uses to occasionally refresh her spirit.

Still, the ruling-class woman with a soft spot for the people isn’t operating in a vacuum — and Corbett’s reminder that the eyes of London are upon them means there won’t be much time to mull the fate of the stubborn girl who’s now a prisoner in Castle Ventris.

(Will Hot Priest offer any guidance, I wonder, or will he remain silent as usual?)

    This show needs to step things up.

    I read a lot of comments saying people gave up during the first hour and I agree. The first half of the premier wasn’t very exciting but the 2nd half was excellent. I hope more people hung in there than are telling. I’m hooked.

    Last weeks double episode was amazing, loved it. I see some people say its slow, I couldn’t disagree more. The story, characters and dialogue is what is interesting in this show for me. Kurt Sutter might be known for his violence but I LOVE the writing he does.

    Can’t wait for episode 3 tonight!

    At first, when viewing the pilot, I was neutral waiting for the hook. It is just getting to the mysterious hook I was looking for. I believe as the cast begins to find comfort in their roles and chemistry with one another, the series will excel. I for one am becoming more pleased since the Baron was killed. I formed a strong dislike for him and his chamberlain. I simply love, the Baroness, I can foresee an indiscretion forming between she and her executioner that could possibly yield the forbidden fruit she so wished for from her deceased baron husband. Oh how ironic that could be, to have an heir on the baroness….hmmmm. anticipating future episodes to evolve more.
