Let’s all sit back and have a bit of wine, shall we? ‘Er, maybe not if Arya Stark is serving it. Welcome to the HBO Game of Thrones: Season 7 premier recap! I know I for one was on the edge of my seat before the show even started, but how about opening with Arya […]

Game of Thrones: The Gift

Game of Thrones S5 E7 The Gift

I have to be honest, I was a little bit tentative to watch this week, as I’m still appalled by last week’s conclusion. Hoping that at the very least it couldn’t get any worse, I decided to go ahead and dive right in. This weeks starts with Jon Snow and other Night’s Watch men gearing […]

Game of Thrones: Sons of the Harpy

Game of Thrones Son of the Harpy

This episode was where the season took a dark turn I noticed, and for Game of Thrones to take a dark turn, it must be pretty serious. The episode opens on a man getting out of a boat, and he is soon hit over the head by none other than Jorah Mormont, who is still […]

Game of Thrones: High Sparrow

Game of Thrones High Sparrow

I’ve read a lot about this season of HBO’s Game of Thrones, and people who worked on the show are saying that this is the season that starts to take the show in a different direction from the books. If I didn’t see it in previous episodes, I definitely do now, and this episode more […]

Game of Thrones Episode 208, The Prince of Winterfell

got208

On the eve of war, Tywin marches, Stannis sails, Tyrion schemes, and Theon is belittled by his sister. Oh, and Nurse Pointless gets naked with the King in the North, possibly earning herself a new nickname. Let’s knock a few of the lesser plotlines out of the way quickly: nothing of significance happened in Qarth […]

Game of Thrones Episode 207, A Man Without Honor

got207a

Some long-neglected characters got some welcome face time, the bad guys acted like jerks, the good guys also acted like jerks, and the episode title actually makes sense. That makes for a good week on Game of Thrones. I’ve been pondering how the various factions in Game of Thrones map to real-world politics, or at […]

Game of Thrones Episode 206, The Old Gods and the New

got206a

In this week’s episode, nothing terribly unexpected happened, unless you count all the drastic (and sometimes bizarre) ways the series is starting to diverge from the novels: random nurses, kidnapped dragons, and slightly less rape. Things start off with Theon Greyjoy’s brave storming of Winterfell, sneaking over the walls in the night and wrenching it […]

Game of Thrones Episode 205, The Ghost of Harrenhal

got205

Every character’s trajectory was altered in this week’s pivotal episode. From exotic Qarth to the frigid north, all the aimless meandering stopped as plans shifted and lives diverted (or just ended). So who is the Ghost of Harrenhal? We dive right in with a crucial scene that leads right off from last week’s bizarre shadow-monster […]
