1883 – Monologue (Elsa – 3)

A monologue from the tv series created by Taylor Sheridan

(S1 – E5)


I’d known death since I was a child. It’s everywhere. But it had never touched me. It had never placed it rotten finger on my heart.

Until today. Today my eyes died. I see the world through my mother’s eyes now. Yes, freedom has fangs. And it sunk them in me.

I chose to love him. He chose to love me back. Then chose to protect me. Then a man we’ve never met chose to kill him.

And made me colorblind.” “Maybe killing this man will get my eyes back. Maybe it won’t. But I chose to find out.”
