Okay, okay, okay… Yes, I knew Jon Snow died. Yes, I know he got better. Yes, I know S6E9 has an Epic Battle That Ends Badly because there was no way I could pass up a clickbait title like “Why GoT’s Battle of the Bastards was Just Like Cannae (but was supposed to be like Agincourt).” Nevertheless, I will look at my wonderful wife with disbelief and tell her I never saw that coming, either (whatever the “that” happens to be), because that is how we watch TV shows in our house. And it’s fun when she figures out a plot point before it happens (although she’s best with mysteries).

The important thing is, you feel chastened and chagrined. That’s all I was trying for. Go and sin no more.
