Now that was an excellent episode of Game of Thrones.
And an equally excellent episode of Penny Dreadful.
It is hard however for me to imagine Dracula being more ominous than Lucifer, but perhaps he is. Just not as cunning. But I thought the writers did something rather brilliant with that juxtapositioning.
I had suspected for some time that the Children had created the White Walkers, but not in that way. Now it makes sense why they would turn on them. They weren’t ever meant to be controlled. It seems they were meant to be Wild Card. A Doomsday Machine.
Or monster in this case. One on which they misunderestimated.
Though I was hoping that eventually Hodor would fight and kill (for good) the Mountain. I guess that’s out of the question now. At least on a man to monster basis.
Maybe monster to monster it’s still on the card.
Verbis Diablo (Penny Dreadful) really bothered me.
You know I’ve seen a lot of evil things in my day. And studied a lot of evil men and even hunted my share.
And yeah, I know it’s just a fictional show… but baby butchery and Satanic voodoo?
I hope they behead those witches soon, then burn their bodies and scatter the ashes, because that’s going about as far as even I can tolerate in a show.
As for Kill the Boy (Game of Thrones) I thought that was a superb episode, especially the poetic recounting of the Doom of Old Valyria.
