“I know nothing in my heart anymore.” Truer words have never been uttered on The Bastard Executioner, but if the show’s cast remain uncertain about who they’re meant to be, at least Kurt Sutter is confident in the series’ identity. His medieval soap opera has really hit its stride in the last two weeks, with plot coalescing in “A Hunger/Newyn” and taking full shape in “Piss Profit/Proffidwyr Troeth,” where Corbett shows just how ruthless he can be, Lowry outwits Gaveston with naught more than a jar of wolf urine, and Wilkin stains his soul with the blood of innocents yet again. (Arguably, only one person punished by Wilkin’s hand genuinely qualifies as “innocent,” but it’s worth noting that the villains he’s offed have each been framed.) (Via Paste Magazine.)
