In the latest episode, Pilgrim and his family deal with the aftermath of Castor‘s death. When Nix confronts Pilgrim for the truth of Castor’s death after seeing bruises on his neck, Pilgrim lies. “How do you explain to your daughter why you killed your son? You can’t. So he ends up lying for the first time, and he uses every tactic that he can,” says Babou Ceesay.
The confrontation scene had a profound affect on Ella-Rae Smith. “I feel like [the scene] really does have all of the elements of their relationship, this love and care, but control and fear,” she says. “I was just physically shaking. I got a tension headache after that scene because it was so intense.”
