Even as the residents of Midnight praise their ability to be openly “different” everyone in town seems to have a skeleton or two in their closet. Or a corpse in the river which just happens to turn up the day after Manfred arrives in town.
The big question hanging over this recent news is what it means for Game of Thrones. The hackers seem convinced that they’re actions mark a revolutionary turning point in this modern war on piracy.
When we first meet Sansa, she's the sweet flower of the Stark Family, full of innocents and dreams. But by the time she and John retake Winterfell at the end of Season 6, it becomes clear that Sansa has grown into a calculating and cynical shadow of the girl we met back in Season 1. She's realized, like Cersei, that dreams can turn sour. Hers did too.
Though Bronn has no loyalty for Cersei, he is loyal to Jamie (or at least his gold and promises) who in turn is devoted heart and soul to Cersei.

At it’s core, the series is a reminder of why “roadtrip” stories are so well-loved; after all, life is a journey, not a destination.

I'll admit from the start, I'm a new fan of the Netflix series Sense8. In fact, I didn't start watching the show until mid-May this year, just after the release of Season 2 but once I found the series, I couldn't turn it off and had devoured all 23 episodes within a matter of days. So hearing the news that Netflix wouldn't be renewing the series for a third season was devastating.
