From: The Great Game of Thrones Rewatch of 2017






  • "Fire and Blood", the one in which Tyrion gets a job, Jon gets dragged back from the brink of doing something incredibly stupid, Sansa gets dragged back from the brink of doing something awesome, Robb becomes a king, Dany becomes a widow, and Arya becomes a boy. Oh yeah. And dragons!

  • And we open with Ice, dripping blood. *still traumatized*
  • Arya... Look at Yoren... y'all gotta get OUT of Dodge and NOW.
  • Sansa faints... yeah, that was all just a LITTLE BIT MUCH.
  • "I'm not a boy!" "You're not a smart boy, is that what you're trying to say?" lol...
  • I wonder if people who hadn't read the books were worried that Yoren's "Do you want to live, boy?" while coming at Arya with a knife was going to be something other than butchering her haircut.
  • Go North, young... boy. :unsure:

  • There's that creeptastic dream bird mutant again. He's heading toward the crypts! Better follow him!
  • Back when Isaac Hempstead Wright was still small enough to let Osha carry him on her shoulders. :unsure:
  • Time for a Stark history lesson while we're in the crypts!
  • You see? He's not here.... BUT THERE'S A RABID DIREWOLF IN THERE... with his feral child owner.
  • Osha's all "Nah, just because you and Rickon had the same dream, that doesn't mean anything at all.... ahhhhhhh crap, Luwin's got bad news."
  • Sad music is sad.... :sad:

  • Oh man... this bit where Catelyn is walking through the camp to the trees so she can grieve out of everyone's hearing... geez. Choking up.
  • And then Robb, trying to murder the tree.
  • "Robb. Robb. Robb! You've ruined your sword."
  • mmmmmmnope, crying again. nope nope nope
  • "My boy. They have your sisters. We have to get the girls back. And then we will kill them all." #fierce

  • Ahhh, poor Marillion. He's finally gotten someone to let him sing for them, and next thing you know it's a command performance for the royal Manson family. :unsure:
  • The song was probably hilarious in an anti-Lannister tavern though. :laugh:
  • Are we supposed to clap? Did he like it? :unsure:
  • "Every man needs hands, Your Grace." Geeez.
  • Well, I've had all the fun I can, you guys take care of the whole boring ruling stuff, a'ight? :unsure:
  • Sansa's eyes are so red. :sad:
  • "As soon as you've had your blood I'll put a son in you." Well that's something to look forward to. :dry:
  • Good GOD Joffrey is such a... there are no PG-13 words for this kid.
  • Mother says I still have to marry you, so I'm going to torture you for the rest of your life. DOESN'T THAT SOUND AWESOME?
  • LOOK AT YOUR DAD'S HEAD. I DID THIS. IT WAS ALL MEEEEEEEEEEE (Also apparently I had George W. Bush beheaded. Who knew?)
  • "Or maybe he'll give me yours." HO!
  • This right here? This is where I start to love Sansa.
  • She won't even give him the satisfaction of crying when he has her beaten.
  • She's gonna shove him off that bridge. She's gonna do it... She has had ENOUGH OF THIS CRAP... Aww damn it, Clegane... you ruined the moment. *sigh*
  • At least Sandor is kinda looking out for Sansa, a bit.

  • Robb has a good grasp on the line of succession at least....
  • "Renly is not right." I don't know why that made me snerk, but it did.
  • Ohhh there he goes, the Greatjon taking over the meeting again.
  • "Even their gods are wrong!" :laugh:
  • "There sits the only king I mean to bend my knee to." >.> Robb's all "Did I apply for this job?"
  • Theon swearing his sword to Robb, so moving... and so infuriating THEON YOU LITTLE PUNK WHY DID YOU HAVE TO BETRAY YOUR OATH GAHHHHH
  • Catelyn's all "Well that escalated quickly."
  • My son's just been declared king... guess I need to go interrogate the prisoner!
  • Jaime all snarky flirting.
  • WHOA, smacked in the face with a rock!
  • "There are no men like me. Only me." Classic Jaime Lannister right there.
  • "You should get some sleep. It's going to be a long war." Yeah, so should I. :unsure::laugh:

  • Segue to "I can't believe we're at war!"
  • The phrase "when you were young" is probably not the best way to get Cersei in the mood for NakedLancelTime, just sayin'.
  • "Stop talking. Get back into bed." :laugh:

  • Everyone trying to discuss war strategy. Tywin's all broken recording over there. "They have my son."
  • Tyrion laying down some truth with the shattered glass metaphor. Mmmhmmm.
  • This may be the first time Tyrion wasn't included in the "Get out, all of you."
  • Dad's pouring me wine? On purpose? What is this i don't even
  • Madness and stupidity! (But let's not talk about American politics, shall we?)
  • It's really sad thinking that this is probably the first time ever in his life that Tywin has shown Tyrion an ounce of respect for his intellect and political acumen.
  • "Heads. Spikes. Walls." Yup, he knows the drill.
  • "You're my son." Tyrion sitting there staring in wonder.

  • Ahhhh, Dany waking up with a bad blood magic hangover. "What happened last night?" Well, after you danced on the tables, you got into a cat fight with a stripper and she pulled out a chunk of your hair. A biker gang wanted to take you with them on the road but two of the thugs got into an argument over who you were going to be riding with and it got bloody, and the fuzz showed up, and I pulled you out of the dumpster covered in puke and week-old french fries. You've been passed out on the couch ever since.
  • I seriously have no idea what's wrong with me.
  • Yeah Dany, I know you felt the baby moving before all this happened, but you got into some baaaaaaaaaaad juju with that "only death can pay for life" thing. *shudders*
  • Rotten dragon baby. Eww.
  • "Show me what I bought with my son's life." Ummmmm yeah. You're not gonna like this.
  • Well. He's alive. Technically.
  • "When will he be as he was?" "When the sun rises in the west and sets in the east. When the seas go dry and the mountains blow in the wind like leaves." There's more to it in the books, and in the books there are indications that these things are symbolically happening. Yeahhhhhh... too complex for ShowGoT. I will try to be satisfied with the tip of the iceberg that got adapted.
  • This conversation with Mirri Maz Duur is awesome. Her accent kind of throws me during parts of it... but it's awesome.

  • Sam is so obviously terrified trying to stop Jon from deserting. I love the fact that he did what he did anyway despite his fear. It's the first step toward Sam losing the "craven" tag.
  • "Do you know what happens to deserters?" "Better than you do." Yeahhhh, you've seen Ned execute deserters... and you and Robb have been so strongly shaped by his sense of honor and duty... you realize that Robb will have no choice but to execute you if you go try to join him, right? He's not going to like it a bit, but he will do the honorable thing, and you are an utter moron for thinking he won't.
  • LOL Ghost running out the gate after Jon...

  • Tyrion probably should have just found a new prostitute best buddy in King's Landing. He could have hooked back up with Roz. But no, he just had to be a rebel :dry:
  • "No, he said I couldn't take you with me to King's Landing. He was very specific on that point." "He knew my name?" No, dear. Not that specific.
  • This outburst from Shae annoys me for two reasons. One, because they've been sleeping together for what, a couple of weeks? She's supposed to be a camp follower - she was taken from someone else's tent and Tyrion's paying her well to act like his girlfriend, but this isn't her first rodeo. She's freaking out and "are you ashamed of me?" guilt tripping him in her position? That just doesn't work for me. Also, her accent just makes the lines sound weird.

  • Fleeing through the forest! Horses in pursuit! Sam hits his head on a branch! *screams like a girl* "Did we get him?" LOLOLOLOLOL
  • No no guys, I have to leave, my brother's gone to war and he obviously needs a Night's Watch deserter to fight by his side and help him lead the troops where every Northerner will expect me to be executed and my stepmother will want to do it herself and he will insist on not doing it because #reasons?
  • I love the fact that they convince him to return with them by reciting the Night's Watch vow that he took so seriously... and he's standing there going "yeah, that was kind of a solemn vow, wasn't it?" And then Sam hands him the VERY EXPENSIVE FAMILY HEIRLOOM SWORD that the Lord Commander who HANDPICKED HIM TO GROOM FOR COMMAND entrusted to him and he's all "Oh. I'm kinda being a douche."

  • Ahhh, this scene... it brings back sad memories of my husband's death - long story, but the 15 minutes after we removed him from life support and before his heart stopped were a little bit like this.
  • Except I didn't smother him with a pillow. :unsure:

  • Oh god, Pycelle rambling about kings.
  • This is the most icky sexposition alert ever.
  • Oh hi, Naked Roz. Washing up after Pycelle sex. >.> *gag*
  • Has Pycelle even MET Joffrey? :rolleyes:
  • The best thing - okay, the only good thing - about this scene is the way after Roz leaves, Pycelle drops the doddering old half-senile man act, and you get a glimpse of ... what is he up to? Sadly, we never find out.

  • And another Varys and Littlefinger verbal sparring match... ye gods these two are so much fun.
  • "A man with great ambition and no morals... I wouldn't bet against you." Yup.
  • "I must be one of the few men in this city who doesn't want to be king." "You must be one of the few men in this city who isn't a man." "You can do better than that." ROFL.
  • "Do you spend a lot of time wondering what's between my legs?" RIGHT? THE MAN IS OBSESSED.
  • "Do you lie awake at night fearing my gash?" omglol
  • Here we stand, in mutual admiration and respect. Playing our roles.... *nod*

  • Yup, that hair has done been butchered.
  • Nobody gives three $#!^s about Arry the orphan boy. Why three, exactly? Is that just too many?
  • Rorge, Biter and Jaqen H'ghar sighting!
  • OH HEY, HOT PIE! You're not cool yet.
  • I told that other kid, it's NOT SMART TO GRAB THE GIRL WITH THE POINTY OBJECT.
  • Woooooo, Gendry! :wub:
  • "You've got rapers, pickpockets, murderers..." "Which are you?" *srsface* "Armorer's apprentice." OMG THAT'S THE WORST OF THEM ALL.
  • WINTER IS COMING. (Eventually)
  • And Arya's Road Trip begins!

  • I love the way Mormont clearly knows exactly what happened the night before, and he's just enjoying watching Jon wig out when he brings it up.
  • "Honor made you leave, honor brought you back." "My friends brought me back." "I didn't say it was your honor." *hi5 Mormont*
  • Here is where Jon gets his mission - this is the real war, the one he will still be fighting in Season 7.
  • "When dead men - and worse - come hunting for us in the night, do you think it matters who sits on the Iron Throne?" Sounds familiar.
  • Yeahhhh Jon finally gets to be a ranger after all!
  • "We will find Benjen Stark, alive or dead." Well, that you won't.

  • RIP Drogo... Your butt-length braid was truly impressive. You will be missed.
  • I love this chapter in the books, Daenerys' inner monologue... "If I look back I am lost."
  • "I won't watch you burn." "Is that what you fear?" Dany kisses Jorah on the cheek, and suddenly he's all OMG THERE IS HOPE FOR MEEEEEEEEEEEEE. :dry:
  • The khalasar is not impressed by this speech. Maybe you should try giving it in fluent Dothraki.
  • "I am Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, of the blood of Old Valyria. I am the dragon's daughter, and I swear to you that those who would harm you will die screaming." Well that's not just a tiny bit bat$#!^ crazy.
  • tumblr_m96lfmvSQE1rbiyydo2_250.gif
  • That significant look between Dany and Jorah, before she steps into the wall of flame... he's all "YOU SAID YOU WEREN'T GONNA BURN YOURSELF ALIVE... COME BACK TO MEEEEEEE"
  • All the Dothraki are like "welp, crazy girl's gonna die now.. might as well take a nap until the fire goes out."
  • Jorah and the boys have nooooooooo idea what they're about to find.
  • OMG DANY IS NAKED. Jorah can't stop staring.
  • "Yo. Jorah. Those are not my dragons."
  • D'awwwwwwwwww, baby Drogon :wub:


".And for the first time in hundreds of years, the night came alive with the music of dragons." *mic drop*


Sleep I must, for tomorrow I embark on a larger binge - we will cover the first half of season 2. Stannis! Craster! Greyjoys! Margaery! Brienne! Davos! Shadowbaby! Jaqen H'ghar! Halfhand! And Xaro Xhoan Daxos! Get hype!
