Re: A Tale of Two Cities and its connection to TDKR
Madame Defarge knitted the names of people she hated (upper class folks, I think); Bane was knitting during the kangaroo courts. The football stadium scene came from an older movie, Prince of the City. Or maybe it was King of the City. It involved a dirigible and a football stadium.
"I defeated your uncle Victarion and his Iron Fleet off Fair Isle, the first time your father crowned himself. I held Storm's End against the power of the Reach for a year, and took Dragonstone from the Targaryens. I smashed Mance Rayder at the Wall, though he had twenty times my numbers. Tell me, turncloak, what battles has the Bastard of Bolton ever won that I should fear him?" - Stannis Baratheon
