“Who knows more of gods than I?
Horse gods and fire gods, gods made of gold with gemstone eyes, gods carved of cedar wood, gods chiseled into mountains, gods of empty air… I know them all. I have seen their people garland them with flowers, and shed the blood of goats and bulls and children in their names. And I have heard the prayers, in half a hundred tongues. Cure my withered leg, make the maiden love me, grant me a healthy son. Save me, succor me, make me wealthy… protect me! Protect me from mine enemies, protect me from the darkness, protect me from the crabs inside my belly, from the horselords, from the slavers, from the sellswords at my door. Protect me from the Silence.”
“Godless? Why, Aeron, I am the godliest man ever to raise sail! You serve one god, Damphair, but I have served ten thousand. From Ib to Asshai, when men see my sails, they pray.”
— A Feast for Crows, Euron Greyjoy
Former Casualty actor Clive Mantle has told a court how his ear was partly bitten off in an attack by two men who felled him "like two hyenas bringing down an old water buffalo".
The 56-year-old Game of Thrones star, who was working locally, told the court his ear was bitten three times outside his room in the attack on 24 March.
The actor told the jury his ear was bitten while he was pinned to the floor.
But Robin Patton, defending Mr McGilvray, accused Mr Mantle of losing his temper and running at the two men, who are both from Hamilton.
He said the actor knocked Mr McGilvray to the ground and ended up on top of him.
"You took out Philip McGilvray, he did not stand a chance and with your weight, you took him to the ground," Mr Patton said.
The actor replied "absolutely not" and said he was "flabbergasted" at this claim.
On Tuesday, Mr Mantle told the court that his "guardian angel" Alice Klenk, a nurse who was staying at the hotel, had heard the fighting and came out of her room.
She grabbed the drunken defendants by the scruff of the neck to stop the attack, the jury heard.
Mr Mantle told the court that after her intervention he "looked down on the floor and there was my ear lying on the carpet".

I doubt the hound is really dead. Recall that in the books, there's an indication that he's very much alive and trying to sucker Jamie into meeting with him, or, it's possible it's him trying to arrange the meeting.
Tyrion turning into a dark character is exciting. Even though Tywin was one of my favorite characters.
Tyrion was well within his rights to do what he did and still be thought of as a hero. The only thing he didn't do is kill that cunt of a sister of his. Shame, that.
I feel like Shae's side of the story needed a bit more elaboration. Not sure if that is more explained in the books or not.
It's not. Shae got far more face time in the show than in the book, and Tyrion's only motive for killing her in the book (not that it's a bad motive) was finding her in her dad's bed like he did in the show. In the books, she didn't fuck him over during his trial. It's one of those minor deviations that really helps you HATE shae enough for her to die the way she did in the books and in the show.
Can't wait til next season. I hope the same actor behind the faceless man makes an appearance again, though I kinda liked his first costume face more than the face that was revealed after. (first actor than the second).
He wasn't in the books, and that's a shame. Chances are, he will be back on the show, since it would kinda tie in better and make a little more sense, but we'll see.
