Game of Thrones: Allies & “The Gift”

“You are the few. We are the many. And when the many stop fearing the few….” With this phrase, the High Sparrow shuts down the normally vocal Queen of Thorns.  Usually quick with a verbal repost to any challenge coming her way, Lady Olenna Tyrell found herself unable to sling one last arrow at the old, […]

Game of Thrones: The Testing of Men & “Sons of the Harpy”

Game of Thrones: The Testing of Men & “Sons of the Harpy”

It is often the most difficult and hard of times that test and make the best out of men and women.  I’m quite sure someone said something akin to that – it’s a safe bet it’s either Wilde or Churchill.  In any case, it’s true.  It’s easy to be king or lead when times are […]
