Game of Thrones
Before going ahead, we'll give you the obligatory spoiler warning for everything up to this week's episode.
"One of the things that Dany has found immensely frustrating in the beginnings of this war against Cersei is that she is being asked to fight on a certain moral standard and Cersei isn't", Benioff said.
"Her dragon burned 1,000 wagons", relays Jaime. Refusing to bend the knee before Daenerys, the latter decides to burn them alive.
Tyrion surveys the battle scene. Dany addresses her prisoners of war, Drogon to her back. Everyone wants power for their families as they plot and conspire against one another. The burning of the Tarly's was brutal, but again, a point had to be made. This also means that Jon Snow is not a bastard, which is REALLY gonna fuck him up considering that his entire identity and neuroses are sculpted around his belief that he is one. "They're attractive, aren't they", the Mother of Dragons asks, and it's the audience who nods with approval. Father of Dragons, perhaps?
Among these men is wildling leader Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju) who apparently became a member of the Night's Watch by order of the King in the North and is particularly manning the castle at Eastwatch.
More importantly - what's the difference between warging and what the Night King does to the dead? Sam attempts to change their minds to mediocre success. Starvation during winter is a real threat.
In case you missed it, Gilly just casually read how Jon's father Rhaegar got his first marriage annulled by The High Septon, and was married in secret to another woman in Dorne. And while it may seem like running away is all Sam is good at, this time he's really grown a pair when he decides to get involved in the coming conflict and flake on his pointless duties.
That Jon even consider this plan is pretty ridiculous. After getting word of his living siblings, he resolves to return to Winterfell. Since she's such a receptive person in general. Tyrion, like Jon, approached the dragons cautiously.
Davos provided great comedic relief throughout the episode too.
Jaime experiences a moment of joy when Cersei reveals that she's pregnant. Barely together a full episode and Arya and Sansa already do not trust each other, proving the Lannisters aren't the only ones with problems. The two sisters fall into old squabbles - Arya accuses Sansa of petty ambition, Sansa brushes Arya aside. Because the queen on the Iron Throne and her brother are going to be parents again. Since it appears Littlefinger can, in fact, do more than stand on battlements and scheme pensively, Arya stalks him. All that that draws her to him.
It's the one Sansa was forced to write to Robb back in Season 2, telling him to surrender to Joffrey. At least he wasn't a random foot soldier or a second-tier character because they don't have dragon-proof plot armor, as we soon saw.
The mission continues with Davos recruiting Gendry to help them.
I recently rewatched an episode of The Office in which Kelly Kapoor tells Ryan she's pregs to get him to take her out for dinner, so forgive me for my initial skepticism-a "pregnancy" would be the ideal way to keep Jaime in her corner, particularly since he's a little more reluctant to keep the war going with the Mother of Dragons having watched his entire army be essentially nuked with Drogon-fire.
