Michelle goes to her mother in the kitchen who is busy planning tomorrow’s events for the handing over of Port Prosperity to Gath. She asks about David who’s been made like he’s never existed. Rose poo-poos it and says what’s important is she take care of her baby.

In a hotel room, Jack is pacing, Lucinda is on the floor cutting out pictures. William comes in with Andrew and tells Jack that action will happen tomorrow in Port Prosperity.

Silas visits Vesper Abedon and brings some wine. He wants to ask for his advice after all the recent events. “Stop trying to win their approval” the old king says, “It is better to be feared than loved.” “You want to give Gath the land? Those for, plant in front of the cameras. Those against, plant in the dirt. Don’t hide it. Let the sun dapple the whole damn mess. And anyone still plotting against you will do it slipping in blood puddle.”
“I know you Silas better than anyone. My worst enemy, now my only friend. You’re no tyrant, but you could be, if you tried.”

Silas then asks about David and Vesper Abedon says to Continue reading

Silas is cooking breakfast. Jack and Rose are at the table.
Shopping’s the hard part, “cooking’s is just the correct application of heat,” Silas says. Rose says she misses how he used to cook all the time, Jack says “things changed.” “Things need to change back,” Rose replies. She puts the newspaper with the headline “DAVID SHEPHERD ARRESTED” in front of Silas and leaves so they can “sort through things. Together, mountains can move.” She gives Jack a kiss and leaves.

Silas tells Jack about the trial, he will be asked to recall his time with Shepherd.
“I’m not sure how I’ll remember it,” Jack says. Silas replies, “You choose how you remember it.”
“I find him interesting,” Jack says, “his devotion to you, to doing the right thing even when he has no idea what that is.”
“You’re my heir, you have something to lose in his success,” Silas says, “We have to slit a throat on a legend.”

Jack meets with William. Jack says Silas fears Continue reading

The Piano Piece from Kings

Everyone’s been wondering what is the title of the piano piece David plays (and Silas hears) in “The Sabbath Queen” episode (and most recently in this week’s “Chapter One” episode) of NBC’s Kings.

But thanks to denners_b at the Kings IMDb message boards (via adivina at the NBC.com message boards), we now have the title and composer (one of the greats!). The piece is none other than…

The Sick Doll
by Pyotr Tchaikovsky

Here is the piece as performed by cubusdk on YouTube:

You can also download the piece on Shohei Urata - Classical Piano Favorites - The Sick Doll by Tchaikovsky

A very beautiful piece of music and what a perfect one for the show right? Even the title fits perfectly.
It’s played a big part on the show, so great to finally have that mystery solved! Credits to those who ID’d the piece! Thank you!

Kings 1×10: Chapter One

A man is writing and narrating. Perry, the court historian Silas has entrusted with writing the story of Gilboa and the crown. He starts his story with a charter, stolen. The charter telling “the story of our liberties and our pride.” “From that day on it was as if a new story had begun. By order of the king, I endeavor to write it.”

The palace is abuzz with activity; our trusty security guards Klotz and Boyden express their hatred towards whoever took the charter.
The chancellors and the assembly are meeting in the boardroom. David arrives and takes his place in the advisor’s seat, but is Continue reading

Kings 1×09: Pilgrimage

Silas announces he is going on pilgrimage. The last two times he did, he thought of building a capital at Shiloh and “a vision for peace.”
“Who knows what I’ll come up with this time?”

Outside, Rose is making sure a new painting of the ministers is up straight for a special unveiling tomorrow. She exchanges a look with Katrina Ghent.


Setting off on his pilgrimage, he tells Jack that he is the “man of the house” while he’s gone. “Consider it practice” he advises, “Make me proud.”
Meanwhile, Jack’s lover Joseph is Continue reading

For Your Emmy Consideration: Kings


NBC’s Kings.
This is a series that should be huge. A watercooler series the likes of Lost and season 1 of Heroes. Prestigious and smart like Battlestar Galactica. Combine those qualities and it shouldn’t be dying a slow death this Summer.

Kings isn’t so much a re-imagining of the classic Bible story (at least not in the same vein as SciFi’s re-imagining of Battlestar Galactica or Wizard of Oz to Tin Man), but really Kings is inspired by the Bible story, really just a now timeless tale of the underdog.

The series of course goes deeper than that. It is a sprawling epic drama of government, power, family, romance that draws upon its biblical inspiration, though not in a way that should turn off anyone on either side of religion.

In fact, Continue reading

As guests arrive, Chancellor Hanson brings a gift and asks the King if they could screen the guests better since there’s a death threat against the King.

Rose calls William to tell him Silas still won’t let Andrew go to the party.
“You don’t have to be mad on my account, most people don’t want me around.”
William says “Silas’ grand birthday is canceled” and makes a call.

Jack arrives at the party with a local news lady, Lucinda Wolfson, as his date.
Michelle is in the library, she sees David standing alone, in his tux.

Silas wakes up to a sound. He pulls a knife from under his pillow and gets up from bed, but suddenly steps into a forest. He walks barefoot through autumn leaves until he wakes up standing in the living room. One his aides asks if he can help with anything. Silas seems to have sleepwalked. The man closes the window through which the wind has blown similar autumn leaves into the living room. But Silas notices one green stem of leaves amidst the orange and brown. He picks it up.

In the boardroom, Silas shows the leaves to Rev. Samuels, saying he knows an omen when he sees one.

The Rev. points out that leaves, acacia leaves, are a portent of change; of death and resurrection, rebirth, beginning on the heels of ending. Maybe God has forgiven Silas, he suggests.

He takes one leaf and Continue reading
