In Richard’s case, his greatest fear, his worst nightmare was Bishop Kieran Conry and it was it was the Bishop there in the cage in front of him.
The Bishop is rabid for the blood of a traditionalist, he will sense Richard’s helplessness and devour him inch by inch.
He has to take the final step of degradation, he has to betray Tina.
It is no longer a matter of choice, before this threat, he is helpless.
He cries out “Do it to Tina! Not me!”
Bishop Conry is due to speak at a seminar in Carmarthen Tuesday 19th February - abandon hope all ye who enter here.
