A Song of Ice and Wire takes quotes from The Wire and adds them to screenshots from various Game of Thrones episodes – and the dialogue lines up surprisingly well.
For example, in the accompanying photo, you can see a shot from “Garden of Bones,” the fourth episode of the second season of the HBO series. In this scene, Renly meets with Stannis on the coast of the Stormlands to discuss their rivalry for the Iron Throne. Added to that are the words of the great Slim Charles: “Don’t matter who did what to who at this point. Fact is, we went to war and now there ain’t no goin’ back. I mean, shit, it’s what war is, you know? Once you in it, you in it. If it’s a lie, then we fight on that lie. But we gotta fight.”
It’s so much more poignant this way! I think I just teared up a little. Readers, what words of wisdom from The Wire would you say apply to Game of Thrones? Sound off below!
