As quickly as this story is
developing, there is an EXTENSIVE amount of attention to small details in
setting it up… We get MORE reunions though; Dany confronting the man who killed her
father, Brienne vouching for Jaimie, Jorah giving his family weapon to Jorah,
the so-believed “victims” of the Beyond the Wall dummy mission actually making
it back and Tormund hilariously continuing to shoot his shot with Brienne. Bran caught us with his
MAJOR ability to throw shade with his “the things we do for love…” and “how do
you know there will be a ‘later’?” lines.He can surely drag a room back to reality quickly.It calls back to my memory when he cut
Littlefinger off with his own “chaos is a ladder” line to let us all know he
should be feared.What scares me here is
that he presents himself to know everything and somehow at the same time just not quite enough at the same time.
That he knows The Night King is after him and Samwell’s understanding of why

months, I have been… -Roped
into a domestic (illegal) sale of coal… -…
parlayed that into sales into other industries… -…
parlayed THAT into even bigger profits and made a ton of money; more than
enough to last me a lifetime if invested properly… -…
got greedy right about the time the international market wanted to play the
dirty coal game. -Gotten

This article was written in 1774 (yes, BEFORE the revolution) and published on March 8, 1775, (ALSO before the revolution). It was initially published in the Pennsylvania Journal and the Weekly Advertiser. While Thomas Paine did not claim to have written the anonymously-submitted article, he has since been credited with its scribe. I am of the opinion that he is so credited because of his involvement with anti-slavery movements that began popping up the following month.

To Americans:That some desperate wretches should be willing to steal and enslave men by violence and murder for gain, is rather lamentable than strange. But that many civilized, nay, Christianized people should approve, and be concerned in the savage practice, is surprising; and still persist, though it has been so often proved contrary to the light of nature, to every principle of Justice and Humanity, and even good policy, by a succes…
