Liked everything in episode till Phrane was shown in bed with a black , an in an ankle chain. I am an African American woman, and I am insulted by the depiction of a man of African descent in chains. The story did not do anything of that nature with any of her other lovers, including an Asian man. In other period shows, such as "The Murdock Mysteries",depicted, racism of the period including Black on Black crime, but did not give a sense that racism is OK, by making a tongue in cheek joke as may have been meant in the scene. I did not find it funny or cute. I like the series, and recommended it to my friends, but no more. I will miss watching the series, and I will recommend my friends stop watching as well.
