I have failed to see such oprotunities before, and let it be a lesson to some people that every piece has its strengths and weaknesses, in the case of the bishiop, you can 'hold' pieces down by 'spearing' them to the king!

Yeah, it looks like they just blocked your Bishop with the horse so now you cannot take the Queen. So you didn't actually capture it.
'Spearing' as you put it is a great way of capturing pieces, i've been foiled many times by the horse because it can check your king and cover another piece at the same time, making you have to move the king and lose the other piece.
