I am continuing to enjoy Ripper Street too. The writing of the earlier episodes was so wonderful, I paid particular attention to it on this week's show. I thought the scene in which the young pregnant girl, Lucy, tried to get her job back at Long Susan's was particularly well done. After Susan turned Lucy down, Lucy said, "Then I know not what will become of me." Long Susan, speaking of men then said, "There is not one primitive desire in their childlike minds that you do not fulfill." To which Lucy replied, "Which is my curse, miss, one from which all the world profit, save myself." That was both beautiful and sad, I thought. Emma Rigby, who played Susan, is a beautiful girl and a fine young actress.
