“Shall We Begin?”

Wooden Horses, Ahoy! (Pt. 1)

[Contains hastily spilt rum and SPOILERS!!!] The sixth season of Game of Thrones ended with a bumper-length finale, which went some way to making up for the disappointingly-short premiere… and coincidentally (?), both of these bookending episodes contained meh-worthy scenes … Continue reading

No Place Like Rome 1: Canon vs. Cannon

“Look! The Pie!”
