  • Episode Description
  • Separated as children and sold to different masters, Isak is reunited with his brother, Pompey. The reunion is not a happy one, however, for Pompey has been promised freedom by the British if he will serve their cause. Captured by Lafayette's men and sentenced to be shot as a spy, Isak goes against his commanding officer and frees his brother.

    • Henry: Smuggling explosives. Now why should that make you nervous? Isak: Offhand, I can give you three good reasons: our necks.

    • Isak: Why'd you run? Pompey: You oughta know as well as anybody. I'm tired of chains and buckskin crackers.

    • Pompey: I'll run anytime someone tries to sell me back.

    • Jim (about Pompey): I say we shoot him now and be done with it. Lafayette: One of the things we're fighting for is the right for all men to be judged fairly.

    • Pompey: The more men talk the more likely they are to do nothing else.
