One time there was an actual physical fight on the Congress floor. At the Congress Hall in January 1798 when Federalist vs Democratic-Republican tensions were at a peak, Representative Matthew Lyon of Vermont, a “die-hard” Republican, began to mock the “aristocratic sympathies” of of Roger Griswold, a Federalist from Connecticut. Griswold then taunted Lyon for his alleged cowardice during the American Revolution and when Griswold turned around, Lyon spat right in his face. Rage went higher and Griswold got his hickory cane and proceeded to lunge at Lyon with it, hitting him several times because Lyon was able to retaliate by grabbed a pair of fire tongs and attacking Griswold back. Two members of Congress ended up fighting on the floor like “common ruffians”.
i still liked the nymeria reunion. i loved that she looks exactly like she was as a little pup, that was a nice touch. it makes sense for the show to represent that the right thing for nymeria is to live in the wild and be free and that arya understands that BUT
for a second there i forgot the show never really gave the direwolves their true meaning like in the books and so i was hopeful that nymeria didn’t go with arya yet because arya wasn’t ready, because even though she is going back to winterfell, to jon, she isn’t quite herself yet and so nymeria waits. i was hoping when arya truly feels like being home and being herself then nymeria would come for her and that would represent arya feeling like a stark again, feeling whole.
