The Difference Between Servitude and Slavery Is a Bit Gray
21 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode brings a couple of complex issues. In our own history we had slaves, those that could be bought and sold. In the wake of emancipation, many of those were put into servitude, they continued to work for "masters" even though they were free by law. The problem was that they were victims of their economic reality. In this episode a sergeant comes to the camp with a young Korean woman who does everything for him: washing, cooking, cleaning, etc. She gets nothing out of this other than her keep. He actually "owns" her because she was bought from her impoverished parents, who live day to day in an oppressive environment. Since she sees dishonor in just quitting, they must find a way to "own" her buy winning her in a crooked card game. Hawkeye finds out that things aren't always easy to solve.
