The title of the season finale is We Happy Few

Some of you will instantly recognize this as a line from King Henry’s St. Crispin’s Day speech before the battle of Agincourt, in Henry V. The same part of the same speech is the origin of the name of the HBO miniseries, Band of Brothers. (Which starred Richard Speight Jr.)

I cannot read the words without hearing the way Branaugh utters them, and the expressions on his face.

Watch it here. And think about why they chose to title the season finale We Happy Few.

(And yes, that is a young Christian Bale looking on, playing Robin the luggage-boy.)
