If you haven't watched the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones, back away from this article immediately because there are plenty of SPOILERS.

"The Bells," the fifth episode of the eighth and final season of HBO's landmark hit, might as well have been titled: Dr. Targaryen or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Commit War Crimes.

Yes, the episode was an 80-minute genocide of King's Landing, and we received a hint of the carnage that would come as Daenerys Targaryen executed Lord Varys for conspiring against her.


Varys went quickly in a rage of dragon fire, and he neither whimpered nor screamed. He knew what was coming.

Oh, and Varys didn't go to his death until after he'd sent out a few messages identifying Jon Snow as the rightful heir to the Iron Throne.

RIP, Varys. You were the rock star of the Seven Kingdoms.

We are in for a treat this coming week. Now that those letters are out there, there's no way Daenerys can come out of this unscathed.

Varys, you sly devil. We'll miss you.

Everyone is afraid of something, but for most of us it's something that "makes sense" like spiders, snakes, etc. That's not the case for everyone, though.

Being accused of things you didn't do is annoying and can be infuriating even in the best of situations. Sometimes, though, the thing you're accused of is so ridiculous that you can't even be mad.

For example, I had a group of friends I would chat with online. One day, the elderly father of one of those friends got a phone call from Florida saying the friend was in trouble and needed bail money.

Some of us are lucky: We have good neighbors. We each go about our business; no one makes any noise or brings any drama into each other's lives... It's quite simple, really.

But others aren't so lucky, and chances are pretty high that you've been one of those unlucky people. (As have I, sad to say.)
