Turkish Tuesdays, and Last Lessons from Hakan:Muhafiz/The Protector, s2e8, on Learning via Empathy, and Empathy as a Sacred Duty

What do we learn from season 2, episode 8?

Lessons:
1.)  Know your friends and your enemies: empathy will show the difference.
2.)  Even when the struggle seems hopeless, empathy is what will keep volunteers working on the Sacred Duty to help others.
    The Crimean War was a while ago.

Faysal is a master manipulator, so what is he after, bringing them together.
And Levent has a point:  people have ruined this world, but we can Do Better.
That is why Hakan accepts the Kutsal görev.
Faysal just has to be in charge, even when he’s not.
And he always wants a weakness he can use against even his servants, which they are, right now: to help him get Rüya back.
Why don’t they wear flak jackets?!
              This is the last review I will do for this series, unless I hear from Readers who’d like to see more.

Turkish Tuesdays, and Two Lessons from Hakan:Muhafiz/The Protector, s2e7, on Empathy for Misplaced Love, and Names

What do we learn from season 2, episode 7?

Lessons:
1.)  Sorry for the heartbreak, Hakan, but sometimes there is a very good reason for those traditions you disdain.
2.)  Even those with beautiful names can still lack the empathy that should go with them.
    For those who don’t speak Turkish, Rüya, the name of our new evil leader, literally means dream.

Nice touch,  because what that company is planning to do now will definitely change the world.

The Covered Market  (aka the Grand Bazaar ) has a terrace?
İt’s horrible to feel alone.
Even with a whole army around you to be family.
O kadın  her kese kullanır.
And just as Hakan didn’t understand how important he was, Levent doesn’t seem to understand how important he is now either.
Yes!!  A very cool library!!
Oops:. Yet another very good reason to keep the Muhafız and his family tightly connected to the Sadık Olanları.
So much for that dream…

Umm, Hakan, what are you thinking?

Turkish Tuesdays, and Two Lessons from Hakan:Muhafiz/The Protector, s2e6, on Empathy, and Mistakes

What do we learn from season 2, episode 6?

Lessons:
1.)  Not everyone can be trusted.
2.)  Empathy Matters.
Sorry, not everyone deserves a second chance.   Azra is right.

And it’s not obvious that they let her go for a reason?
So, like Harry Potter, the orphan has an unknown inheritance.
Zeynep, gitme!
Gorgeous views of islands and the Bosporus, and of course the Aya Sofia.
There are only six immortals that we have seen so far, though Rüya has mentioned a Vezir, who might have shot Hakan when Ceylan died.
Why is the hero always the princess’s “only hope?”
Why does this Leyla keep insisting that women need some man to support them?
Finally, Azra admits her error.
For this day…
That is one more down, but 5 left.
Yeni yönetimi:. Rüya Hanım!
I guess this means they’ll have to rename the building…
But how did they do that?
And who is this Vızır she keeps mentioning?
Now Faysal helps Hakan?

Turkish Tuesdays, Two Lessons from Hakan:Muhafiz, s2e5, and Ending this Series

What do we learn from season 2, episode 5?

Lessons:
1.)  Never trust a person who enjoys killing.
Yep, they told you this would happen, Hakan.

No time for breakfast, guys?
So, having killed her, whose  blood did they use to bring  back poor Leyla, without the hancer to draw blood?
So, these immortals do need to sleep.
And not only does he needlessly kill people, but he also likes to torture.
Even if this guy did kill his family, never is torture acceptable.  Ever.
But the gömlek is only supposed to accept temiz kalbin insanlar, not just any muhafız descendant.
I’ll be ending this review series with this season’s last episode.

Turkish Tuesdays, and Two Lessons Hakan:Muhafiz/The Protector, s2e4 Teaches About Life, and Listening

What do we learn from season 2, episode 4?

Lessons:
1.)  Voluntary isolation is not lockdown.
2.)  Listen to people.
Levent’i guvenİbilir mi?

Güvenlik ev, hapishane’den  çok  farklı.
Ne isterseniz yapın. Leyla için hiç iyi değil.
You going to send your best warrior to babysitting duty because you’re worried about her?
Levent…
Why bring a little kid to a battle?
Hakan, Faysal is not stupid.  Listen to your people!!
Or they pay the price.

Turkish Tuesdays, and Two Lessons from Hakan:Muhafiz/The Protector About Experience and Empathy

What do we learn from season 2, episode 3?

That:
1.)  Even experienced leaders make mistakes.
2.)  History Matters.  It also influences empathy (or the lack of empathy).

But, Azra!

Excellent view of the ancient Aqueduct!!

And we all know that the Black Death/Plague was really a bacterial infection spread by fleas from rats, right?
Levent kills pretty gratuitously, and the guards are just doing their jobs…

Turkish Tuesdays, and Two Lessons Hakan Teaches About Having a Home

What do we learn from this episode?

Lessons:
1.)  Even immortals like luxury, how much more those of us who need food, and a place to cook and eat that food…
2.)  Bickering wastes energy.  We need that energy to cook dinner…

But, about Leyla, Azra is right.

Yeah, Ruya: must be dream-like, being alive when you are so rich, right?  But what a nightmare if you are poor…

Turkish Tuesdays, and Two Lessons Hakan:Muhafiz/The Protector, s2e1 Teaches About Humanity

What do we learn from season 2’s first episode?  HakanMuhaf

Lessons:
1.)  Even the best people can be pushed too far.
Asik bir Muhafiz: oops…
Ok, kids, sometimes the old folks had rules for a reason: now, no one has a clue who the Olumsuzler are, so it’s a very good reason for the Muhafiz to only marry a Sadik Olan, no?
Poor Leyla.
Exactly, Zeynep:  she was right to worry -their blood heals, but at a price too high.  Who would want to live as a slave, especially to them?

Turkish Tuesdays, and Two Lessons Hakan:Muhafiz/The Protector, s1e10 Teaches About Those Without Empathy

What do we learn from season 1, episode 10?  Never trust someone who has no empathy.

Lessons:
1.) Never trust what your enemy tells you: there’s something behind it.
2.) Never trust someone who orders you to contradict your orders.
Exactly, Zeynep: you have no idea what using the blood of the olumsuzler will do to Leyla, if it does heal her.
Again touching antiquities without gloves!!
So, finally, that other door…
Ah, so the trained Sadik Onlari have a plan, but so does the guy who’s lived for hundreds of years.
Things don’t go as either plan.

Turkish Tuesdays, Hakan:Muhafiz/The Protector, s1e9, and a Lesson in Humility (vs. Empathy…)

What do we learn from season 1, episode 9, and then, my impressions of this episode?

Lessons:
1.) Sometimes, “a little knowledge is dangerous.
   Charging in where angels fear to tread is plain stupid, without knowing the whole story.  Humility, it seems to me, is a combination of knowing what you might not know, and having the empathy to be able to imagine that someone else might actually know more than you do, from long hard experience.  Oh, wait, that is humility, no?
So:
     Always find out the old folks hate each other!  It might be important!  Like why Derya was kicked out…
And, now we know why Faysal Bey told Leyla all of that, and why he encouraged their relationship. HakanS1e9
Duty before all.    But people are still people.
Poor Zeynep.
But it gets worse, and if he’d told her, Hakan might not risk losing Leyla.

Next week will be the last episode in Season 1: Turkish Tuesdays, and Two Lessons Hakan:Muhafiz/The Protector, s1e10 Teaches About Those Without Empathy
