      I’d love to see a long form interview about LOTR with these two. They both clearly love it, but with totally different experiences with the books/films.

    At first I thought his character was a bad-guy-in-disguise. Someone who will implode when provoked. Turns out, I was wrong. Not only that, he also ended up to be my favorite character this season.
