Please allow us to observe a moment of silence in honor of Lord Beesbury before we begin this week

Until Sunday, when he stood in defiance as one of the few individuals

 the Red Keep with any sense of honor or loyalty, the ancient master of coin

his rambling financial reports had mostly been a source of light

humor on the Small Council. Ser Criston then killed him as punishment.

The council added insult to injury by leaving his body

the table while they schemed. Overall though, Bill Paterson's character

Lord Beesbury was one of the fortunate ones

He didn't have to watch an episode that, while it had some redeeming qualities
