There was a crazy story out of Florida not too long ago. Apparently, two young men who were watching Game of Thrones got in a fight over who was going to “win” on this show. The fight escalated quickly, and one of the men ended up arrested. Ok, fair enough, we at Enchantment Under The Sea can certainly understand getting invested in pop culture.
