On the heels of our “The Pointy End” episode guide being complete, we also have Pearson Moore’s essay on the episode, “Mighter Than the Sword: The Culture of Duty and Honour in Game of Thrones 1.08”.

A man of good and discerning taste, is Pearson.
You can read more of his articles at our Features page, where he is one of our contributors.
