"I must choose between my brother and my King! Between my family and my country! Between my soul and my scared honor! I must... wait, this means I'll never see you again... WAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!"
At least we haven't had to see David get all angsty over the butterflies' meaning for episodes on end.
And the case of the hog farmers truly bugged me. Using Judgment Day to settle cases like that might make sense if this was a tradition handed down through generations of Kings, but this kingdom was founded in this king's lifetime. Also, someone getting one of the ten slots and then dropping out makes no sense at all.
It made no sense for me either. If Judgement Day is similar to the Supreme Court sitting in session, then I'd think that the ministers would select cases concerning weighty matters, so that Silas' rulings could serve as precedents for the lower courts to apply to similar cases going forward. Of course, I think that the pigs were just there for comic relief.
