BWW Recap: 'Blood of My Blood' Returns on GAME OF THRONES
by Jessica Naftaly - May 30, 2016

We're over halfway done with this season of Game of Thrones, and last night's episode entitled “Blood of My Blood” should have probably been called “Home” (the title of Episode 2), considering more characters were reconnected with their past, began to discern who they are at the core versus who they are expected to be, as well as some literally returning home. However, we did get our mandatory dragon shot! Finally we found out where Summer's CGI budget went! Subsequently, we did get a lot of general plot development this week! Yay! Things happened! Arya was able to move past her stick training, Sam and Gilly got to their destination, we saw the return of two long gone uncles, and Jaime was forced out of the Kingsguard and into his book location!

James C. Nicholson Shares THE NOTORIOUS JOHN MORRISSEY
by BWW News Desk - May 26, 2016

From gang member, political muscle, and prizefighter to New York State Senator, United States Congressman, and industry leader of the sport of Kings—John Morrissey (1831–1878) was all of these and more. When the Morrissey family arrived in America in 1831, there were not many open doors for Irish immigrants, but he did not let his bloodline stop him. He was the kind of man who would challenge the infamous William Poole, better known as “Bill the Butcher,” just to make a name for himself. Morrissey knew that when there was an opportunity, he had to take it. This bravado led to more than one brush with death, but also to wealth and prestige. (more...)
