Welcome to Meet at Delmonico’s: The Alienist Podcast. Join Sheila and Mike each week as they discuss The Alienist: Angel of Darkness

This podcast episode, Sheila and Mike are discussing the eighth and final episode of Season 2 of The Alienist: Angel of Darkness, “Better Angels”!

This week, Mike and Sheila deep dive the finale of this dark dark season of The Alienist. Among topics discussed in this episode, did you think Libby would hurt Clara when she wasn’t down for crazy mom time? Was that game of chess between Karen and Laszlo the sexiest game of chess ever played? (Spoilers: yes, yes it was). Was Sara lying to Libby the hardest thing she’s ever had to do?  Do you agree with Synical Sheila (see what we did there?!) that Violet is lying to John about being in a “delicate condition”? How much of Libby does Sara see in her herself in the contemplative moments this episode?  And finally, how do you feel about where the season (possibly series) ended for our protagonists?  PLUS, an all new History Corner!

1:19.50 – Time Code for Start of History Corner.  Among other things, this week’s history corner includes a discussion of Mendel’s; Weeksville, Brooklyn; and 300 Mulberry Street!
