[S5E1] Give Peace A Chance
It's the peace. I think that's what most people want, right? You know, to be able to live their life in peace. And then to have the chances and the opportunities to have a decent life, a chance to be able to send their children to school, a chance to be able to access health services. Live a life of hope, prosperity and dignity. Right?
[S5E1] Give Peace a Chance
An extravagant house party at the Abbey gives the Crawleys a chance to reconnect with old friends. But some guests prove more welcome than others, and along with the celebrations come skulduggery and heartache.
Mance is seized up and shackled to the stake. Melisandre gives her usual Red God spiel sales-pitch and rubs it in the free-folk's faces that there's is a "king of lies" that she will send into darkness with a single blazing torch. The Red Woman ignites the tinder under Mance's feet. Mance attempts not to panic, not wanting his friend's last memories of him to be screaming and shitting himself as he's cooked alive. Jon and Tormund are visibly grappling with their innermost thoughts, Mance tries desperately to remain composed but the heat and pain becomes too much as the flames tickle his legs and he begins to chatter and whimper. Jon makes up his mind and walks away while Tormund is threatening to charge in, damn the consequences to hell. As the fires consume Mance's lower body and he is just about to break and cry out an armour piercing arrow takes him straight in the chest and severs his spine. Mance can only stare up in shock and relief at Jon on the castle's walkways, with his bow in hand; before the leader of the free-folk expires peacefully. 041b061a72
