After last week’s Switch-Up with no elimination, the scores have piled up and someone had to go home. The three couples in jeopardy tonight were Janel Parrish and Val Chmerkovskiy, Jonathan Bennett and Allison Holker, and Michael Waltrip and Emma Slater. As host Tom Bergeron said, “It’s one of those bittersweet nights, when the person going home has one of their best dances.”. Unfortunately for Jonathan and Allison, there had been too many weeks of low scores, and considering that, it wasn’t much of a shock when they were eliminated from the competition. “Here’s the thing,” Jonathan said, “I came here to do this show to have fun, have a great experience and bring life back into my life, and that’s what I did. I can’t thank Allison enough. I had the best time of my life.” When asked about her first pro experience, Allison said, “I couldn’t have asked for a better person to dance with me every week. I’m so proud of him.”.

With the highly anticipated fourth season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” fast approaching, the power dynamics have once again started to shift. Make no mistake, my ladies and lords, war is coming to Westeros. A savage internecine struggle is being fought between two rival factions: dorks who watch “Game of Thrones” and dorks who read “A Song of Ice and Fire,” George R.R. Martin’s as-yet-unfinished fantasy saga upon which the HBO series is based. Whatever peaceful overlap may still exist between the two camps, well, that is almost assuredly going to end.
