Season 8, Episode 3: Esther Faces a Choice

In this episode, tensions are running high and things are heating up at the Bachelor House (aka King Xerxes’ palace). Esther’s guardian Mordecai steps on some royal toes and accidentally sets in motion a plan to kill the entire Jewish population. Will Esther choose to use her position as queen and step up for such a time as this? Will King Xerxes find out she and Mordecai are, in fact, Jews themselves? Tune in for this week’s episode.
