This week, Game of Thrones was all about justice. Who has it, who wants it, who ain’t gettin’ none of it. Oh, and it was also a little bit about drinking from the skulls of your conquered foes, cuz fuck yeah!

JIM: We open this episode by learning “Missandei is teacher good,” since she’s giving a language lesson Grey Worm. Perhaps I’m reading a bit too much into it but it seemed that perhaps he was a bit hot for teacher, and she for student. Do you feel tardy?

“A one-handed man with no family needs all the help he can get.”

JIM: Jaime Lannister needs a hug. Our semi-repentant incest enthusiast has finally made his way back to King’s Landing, gotten himself a fancy new haircut and C3PO’s hand but things are not going the Kingslayer’s way. It’s true that Tywin forged him a new weapon using only the intense heat generated by his glare, but it seemed more of a bribe to get Jaime to agree to leave King’s Landing & rule Casterly Rock. He’s later mocked by Joffrey for not doing anything with his life by age 40 (I feel ya, Kingslayer) and gets shutdown by his sister-lover. I have two questions. Wasn’t Cersei being awfully unreasonable and is there any chance Jaime can look the other way whilst Joffrey is stapled to his ridiculous new statue?
