As usual, my Twitter feed erupted like Mt. St Helens Sunday night, following the latest "Game of Thrones" episode.
I stumbled upon this reaction video today and watched it. Now, having neither read the books or watched any of the series (I know, I must be the last holdout in America), and knowing next to nothing about the characters, my thoughts upon seeing this clip went as follows:
"OH FOR FRAK'S SAKE STOP RUNNING AROUND PONTIFICATING ABOUT YOUR SISTER AND FINISH THIS BASTARD OFF!"
And sure enough...
I don't know if George R.R. Martin set out to write a textbook definition of hubris, but he certainly succeeded.
Warning: Spoilers for "The Mountain and the Viper," also extreme bloody squishy violence. Skip if you don't have a strong stomach.
