Yet another Game of Thrones finale has come and gone, leaving us all completely reeling and asking tons of questions. A whole mess (and I do mean MESS) of things happened this week, so let’s dive right into it! Continue reading
Let’s jump right in, faithful readers…
JIM: Let’s begin with Dorne because, while this storyline was slightly better this week than it has been all season, it still doesn’t carry the emotional heft or straight up kick to the taint that the others carry. Prince Doran summons Jaime, who immediately kicks into incest Dad mode and tell Myrcella she’s not going out dressed like that. I was half waiting for him to tell Trystane “if anything happens to my daughter I have a .45 & a shovel. I doubt anyone would miss you.”
Doran clearly has a long-term plan in mind as he agrees to let Jaime, and after a swift elbow to the chops, Bronn, take Myrcella back to King’s Landing if he agrees that Trystane will take the small council seat promised to Oberyn before, well… you know.
Doran proposes a toast to King Tommen but Elaria would rather pour some out for her homey Oberyn. Doran later threatens to kill her if she doesn’t swear her loyalty to him. Elaria also has a conversation in which she tells Jaime that sister-fucking ain’t so bad. So, do you buy her tears and loyalty to Doran? She seemed to give that up awfully quickly in my opinion. What do you suppose her conversation with Jaime was about? Simply to point out that everyone knows about the incest? And Myrcella sure seems to have a LOT of Cersei in her. She definitely doesn’t seem to be as syrupy as Tommen. Will that serve her well in the future? Continue reading
Well, shit just got real… let’s get right to it, kids!
JIM: Apparently Khaleesi posted a job on Craigslist for Senior Advisor after the death of Barristan a few weeks back, and Tyrion Lannister has answered the call. This is the long-awaited meeting between everyone’s favorite Halfman and the Great White Hope and if that’s all we had gotten from this week’s episode, I think everyone would’ve been satisfied. We got oh so much more, but we’ll get to that.
