Charley meets with Jacob Bourdreaux at the mill. Turns out the Landrys and Bourdreauxs are related and they own all of the mills and the refinery, which is how they can gauge all of the other farmers in the Parish. The two families also own all of the land surrounding the Bordelon’s farm. Jacob offers $4 million to buy the Bordelon’s farm, far more than Landry offered earlier.
Charley grows suspicious about why the Landry/Bourdreaux clan wants this farm so badly. Vi and Prosper share the farm’s history with Charley, Ralph Angel, and Nova.
The Bordelons were slaves of the Landrys. After emancipation, some of the Bordelons went north to Chicago to find work and sent money back home. Their great-great grandaddy used that money to buy this parcel of land when the Landrys fell on hard times. Afterwards, the Landrys claimed they’d never sold it and tried to take the land back. They strung up and killed four Bordelons. Eventually the title was found to prove the Bordelons own the land but the Landrys and Bourdreauxs have done everything in their power to make running the farm has hard as possible so they could one day take it back. Vi believes that the stress is what eventually killed Ernest.
Charley, Ralph Angel and Nova agree that although it won’t be easy and they don’t have all the answers, they won’t sell their family’s land.
