The screams of teenage girls being dragged by men in uniform fill the entire hallway of a Japanese military brothel.

This scene is the most crucial from "Homecoming", which portrays "comfort women", a euphemistic term referring to the Asian women and girls - mostly Korean - who were sexually enslaved by the Imperial Japanese Army under its country's 1910-45 colonial rule of Korea and during World War II.

The penultimate episode of "Unkind Women" was undeniably fantastic. There was so much resolved and the reactions to those resolutions were emotion-packed. At the same time, there are still a few issues that will linger into the finale and tide us over to the end.

This show is about overcoming the past and this episode really proved that point...More
