  • A young woman is found horribly beaten from what is thought to have been from a rape when in fact it was her own brother who hurt her.

    I was at a loss for words after watching this episode. "Great" doesn't even begin to describe this episode. I was literally guessing who had stabbed and beaten Nafeesa. At first I thought it may have been her professor; he fit the profile. Then after watching the father's reaction, I thought it would have been him. But it was finally revealed that Nafeesa's own brother was the one who left her for dead. Apparently she 'dishonored' her family by wanting to live as a modern woman and choosing her own husband. What really got to me is that this still happens to women in Afghanistan everyday. In a way I was expecting to see what happened at the end. Since the mother testified against her husband, thus disobeying him, he murdered her and fled the country. All in all, great episode.
