Cursed?
14 April 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Set in 17th century Scotland, this episode begins with a distraught Earl Of Donamoor(played by Torin Thatcher) pleading with his court doctor to save the life of his dying eldest son, threatening his own life if his son dies. Instead, the son's lover is accused of witchcraft, and sentenced to death, proclaiming her innocence, though still issuing a curse upon the Earl that all his descendant's eldest sons will predecease their fathers - a prophecy that eight generations later has indeed held true, as the modern eldest son fears... Ironic tale of fate vs. self-fulfilling prophecy is morally ambiguous, though the final twist is most effective.
