Welcome back to the Geekenfreude Recap Spectacular! Let’s get right to it…
JIM: Inside Oreo House, it seems Arya has now become the world’s worst janitor. Impatient that she isn’t learning anything, she gives the what for to “Jaqen” and he’s all like “chill, bitch” and then that guy “Jaqen” gave some water to is all like “oh noes, I’m like dead now and stuff.”
Then that waif girl is all “let’s play this game where I hit you with a stick” and “Jaqen” is all like “chill, bitch” and “she’s not ready for no game of faces.” And Arya is all “Uh, yah I am” and he’s all “you need to get on board with the Oreo House Winter Collection” so Arya dumps all her Arya clothes in the water, but can’t bring herself to get rid of Needle.
Several questions for you: Is Arya reticent to dump Needle cuz it reminds her of home or she doesn’t want to give up her only form of protection? How long before Arya and “Jaqen” are in full wax-on, wax-off mode? Were you ready to drop everything like I was to worship that Weeping Lady of Lys statue?
Season 5, Episode 2: “The House of Black and White”
Welcome, my friends! Welcome to our weekly Game of Thrones recap, where we have all kinds of wonderful insights to share with you today about the second episode of this season. I feel like this episode is still setting the table for what’s to come, much like it was in Episode 1, but I think I can finally smell some food a’cookin’.
In preparation for the Season 5 premiere I went back and watched the final few episodes from last season. Oberyn’s death is still very hard to take, as was Shay’s betrayal but the one thing that stuck with me is that there is NO WAY Khaleesi could have lifted those chains & collars for her dragons all by her lonesome. But I digress, Season 5 is here and so is my pal SP, so let’s get this Recap Spectacular started!
