Hi guys! So I don’t know if its just me, but this episode left me a little frustrated. Before I get into it, here’s my disclosure. I am writing this assuming that if you are reading, you are fully caught up with the show Game of Thrones. If you are not, STOP READING NOW. SPOILERS AHEAD!! So, I knew that Jamie would live, but I’m not happy about it. I am happy that Lord Tarly died. I knew he would not bend the knee. I was hoping Dicon would, but he’s not that smart.Yes, she could have just put him in a dungeon for a while, but it goes back to what she was told a few seasons ago, she has to follow through to be taken seriously as a ruler. I actually just now realized, both Dany and Jon had to make that transition from super soft and forgiving, to serious and rough in order to be taken seriously. Speaking of rulers, Cersei is pregnant. Fuck. Although that will make it all the more devastating for Jamie when she dies, which I’m sure won’t be in this season, but I’m looking forward to it none the less. I really hope she doesn’t live to see this baby. She doesn’t deserve it. Plus they are running out of episodes until the show is over. So I think, either she will not live to have the baby, or she has the baby, and it’s taken by the Night King! I think that would be an awesome twist. It’s also possible that she is not really pregnant and is doing this to fuck with Jamie but that’s not likely. She just does not deserve to enjoy this baby, and on top of that, she would be just the worst role model. (Geoffrey). So, I need to talk about Jon’s moment with Drogon. I thought this was great for so many reasons. One, Drogon accepting his hand further proves the fact that Jon is a Targaryen and their legendary connection with Dragons is a thing and is super sweet. Another thing I wanted to say about this, and I’m not sure if its just me, but Dany watching on, this had to have warmed her to Jon on some level. I felt like she had more respect for him after seeing Drogon accept him, and this is where it might just be me, but I think she might have had one of those moments girls get when they see guys with babies. That total “aww” moment that will make your heart melt and your ovaries stir.
Then Jorah came back. I thought that was a bit fast, but again I guess they are running out of episodes. I want Jon and Dany to work so bad, and now Jorah comes in like that awkward ex that comes in from out of town with no idea whats going on. I don’t know how much longer he’ll be around but I hope he doesn’t ever get with Dany. Then after that awkward encounter, Bran tells everybody whats going on, and the maester’s are just not buying it. Sam should have told them his whole story about how he killed one of them. I understand that Sam was frustrated and he has a right to be, but I think I speak for all the fans when I say he should have listened to Gilly! She was telling him some very important things but of course he does not know that yet. I’m really glad that he ran away with Gilly and baby Sam. I also loved his line about how he was tired of reading about the achievements of greater men. Sam is wonderful and I am super excited for him. I think he has great things in store. When he hears about his dad and Dicon, I expect him to be a little sad, but not too sad, because his dad treated him like shit, and Dicon did not really care that much either. So I am so so excited to see Gendry! I honestly thought that he was just forgotten! I also love that his chosen weapon is this huge bad ass hammer. It was great watching him smash those guards. So the other thing that happened in Kings Landing was pretty awkward but I think that Jamie and Tyrion left on decent terms. So its been decided that Jon, Jorah, Tormund, and later the Brotherhood and the hound are going out to fetch a wight for proof for Dany and Cersei. I don’t like this just because I don’t like Jon risking his life again. Although if he can convince both Dragon queen, and incest queen that the threat is real, they might be willing to help. I know Cersei is also up to some shit and that does not make me happy. So the last thing I need to touch on, Sansa and Arya. I knew they would eventually butt heads so I expected this. I hope they can make up soon because with Sansa’s brains and Arya’s strength, they would make a great team. So Little finger is up to some shit, of course. I did not read what that note said that Arya found, and I did that on purpose. I am afraid for Arya though. I just hope she kills little finger before he kills her. Overall this episode left me frustrated. This was one of those episodes to me where they just built up a lot of stuff. Well guys we have the battle of Eastwatch coming up so I will see you then!
