JIM: Walder Frey, you gloating, self-satisfied son of a bitch! In the aftermath of the Red Wedding, Frey dines casually and makes funny with the new Warden of the North, Roose Bolton (forever young!) whilst the Stark blood is wiped from the floor. We learn of Bolton’s plans to perhaps one day occupy a rebuilt Winterfell and that his bastard Ramsay Bolton has been the one torturing Theon for 10 fucking episodes. My question: do you believe Bolton’s ambitions end as Warden of the North or does he have designs on one day sitting the Iron Throne? Should Walder Frey and the Lannisters trust the family with the Flayed Man sigil? Continue reading →
Hey, guys, is everyone okay? It’s been 48 hours, is it still too soon for you all to talk about it? You know “IT”, The Red Wedding. What you non-book readers may have seen referred to as the RW on the internets up until now? It’s okay, we’ll go slow, we’ll just ease into it, see how you feel. We’ll start with the easy stuff and wait until later to wade into the bloody mess that is Edmure’s reception (And we’re not even talking about the bedding. Yes, I did just gross myself out.) And look everyone, you’re old pal S.P. is back to help out. We’re just going to go on ahead and get started. We promise, we’ll try to be gentle.
JIM: Uh oh, looks like Arya’s gonna bash a bitch’s skull in… and the Hound is down for it but she best get it right on the first try or he’s gonna break her hands. Hmm… good choice Arya. The Hound continues displaying his frightening as all get out side while sprinkling in just enough good guy to make me cheer for him. He surprises Arya with the news that he’s not taking her back to King’s Landing but to the Twins so he can collect a ransom. I may have lost count but I think this is 487th time that someone plans on ransoming Arya and none have been successful – can the Hound break that losing streak? Continue reading →
JIM: Lots to cover this week, so let’s jump right in, shall we?Tyrion seeks counsel from Bronn, his confidant-for-hire, whom, by the way, seems like the most reasonable man in Westeros, doesn’t he? He then explains to Shae how he will marry Sansa & knock her up but wants to hook Shae up with a house and some armed guards and a nice Forever Lazy to lounge in whilst she waits for him to swing by and knock HER up. I think I saw her swoon…oh no, she’s pissed, just back out of the room slowly… How does this untenable situation work itself out??
So, this week, stuff happened, huh? Anyone else feel like maybe this was mostly just lead-up? Entertaining lead-up, but lead-up none the less. So, won’t you come on in, and see what Jim & I thought of all of this episodic foreplay? (Heh, see what I did there?)
You guys, I don’t know if you watch `New Girl`, but you should. Why should you? Because so many reasons, but if I had to pick just one, it would be Schimdt. And now I’m going to tell you about it in animated gifs. Why? Because Schmidt happens.
Asses, asses every where but not a drop to drink. That’s how that goes, right? This was certainly an asstastic episode of Game of Thrones and there is a LOT of ass ground to cover, so let’s get right to the crack crux of it, shall we?
