For the highbrow set, there's adaptations of Low World classics. Right now, I'm watching Oliver Twist
. It's at the gripping scene where Oliver
, having sold Nell into slavery and murdered Fagin, is conspiring with the Artful Dodger to start the great London Fire.
Skrog cares nothing for people, and refuses to participate in the rites of guarding. God
sends a series of visions to terrorize Skrog, but instead of knuckling down, Skrog becomes ever more adamantly opposed to God and God's will. His example is so ferocious that the community rallies around Skrog, and in the end, they sacrifice all the newborns, in a massive blood ritual.
