“The Fiery Cross”
Written for Television by Matthew B. Roberts
Directed by Stephen Woolfenden
Listen to the Podcast:
The people of Fraser’s Ridge, friends, and family gathered to celebrate the wedding of Roger MacKenzie and Brianna Ellen Randall Fraser. The big house was almost complete. Memories were shared and made, drinking games, feasting, dancing, romance, threat, treachery, bonding, politics, oaths, and a release of oath all happened in the two days lived onscreen.
Season 5 Episode 1 is the strongest opening episode only behind Season 1 Episode 1. It was written with the deft hand of Mattew B. Roberts leading the writers’ room. It inhabited the spirit of the written word and achieved an adaptation that stood beautifully on its own with well-crafted storytelling that requires no external explanation.
From storyline references, character development, foreshadowing, costuming, hair, acting, music, variations of emotion and tone, all the way to the set design, no elements are left wanting.
This season is looking to be a spectacular ride.
