Season 4, Episode 7: “Mockingbird”

We’re back! And we’re better than ever!!!

Okay, that last part may be a slight exaggeration, but we are indeed back for another fun-laden trip through this week’s Game of Thrones episode.

Now when the unknowing sees the title of this episode, they may think, “Wow, that’s a pretty name for an episode, because mockingbirds are like nice and shit.” But those of us who DO know, know that this is the self-chosen sigil of one Petyr Baelish, so he probably factors greatly into the episode.
