So, yeah, all that happened. Fan service (a fan job?) I loved, tears, deaths, people not dead, people undead, turning of coats, dragons, sexy times, not necessarily in that order, but there’s so much to talk about, let’s just get on a-goin’ shall we?
Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 6
People in Westeros should know by now…. don’t go looking for trouble, because trouble gonna find you. And that, my friends, is what happened during this week’s emotionally draining episode.
Yes, I was exhausted after… mostly because I thought just about everyone was going to die at various points…. but before I get all spoilery, let’s move this conversation to after the jump.
Well, damn. I step away for one measly week and they bring out the dragon and the Dothraki. I mean, really, how could they top that action this week now that I’m back? Well, they couldn’t, but who needs action when you’ve got stupid Gilly inadvertently opening up a ginormous can of worms?? Let’s get to it.
JIM: We pick up right where we left off last week, or at least a couple hundred yards downriver from last week, as Bronn and Jaime resurface, unburnt. Ooh, are they both secret Targaryens too? Listen to me, cunt, they are not. What? Bronn said it first. Anyway, Bronn informs Jaime he’s audi when the dragons attack King’s Landing, while Jaime dreadfully contemplates his duty to inform Cersei about what went down. The look on Jaime’s face when he said “That was only one of them. She has two more” was outstanding. Meanwhile, Tyrion warily surveys the absolute carnage from the battle site while Dany demands some old-fashioned knee bending from what remains of the Lannister troops. While most comply, mean-muggin’ Randyll Tarly and his normally flaccid son Dickon offer stiff resistance. Not having any of Dickon’s sudden hardness, Dany orders a Tarly flambe and knocks Father of the Year and his Dickon in the dirt. Continue reading
Whew! What a week, huh y’all? So crazy that our pal and fellow writer Jim had to bow out because he just couldn’t handle the intensity. Just kidding, he’s off on the film festival circuit, (can we call it that?) supporting his short horror film The Head. Check it out if you have the chance!
Since he’s abandoned us, Es and I will be doing less of a round table and more of an across the table; it’s an A and B conversation, that we’d like you to C your way into, so join us, after the jump… Continue reading
Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 3
Attention, peoples. There are now only 10 episodes left in this series.
The God of Tits & Wine has smiled upon us, children, and proclaimed that another season of… well, tits & wine, and lots of murder shall be ours to behold. Gods be good. Come along with my pals SP & LAcey as we delve into the Season 4 premiere.
“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?
Okay, so I’ve admittedly been terrible with my recapping thus far in season 4B, I’ve had a lot going on (mostly being exhausted from working too damn much), but that’s neither here nor there. I’m back and renewing my commitment to TBkD. So, remember season 4A, where the Governor talked a bunch of people into storming the prison with him, chopped off Hershel’s head and generally created mayhem, scattering our survivors on the wind? Yeah, we’re still pretty much there, so I’m going to let you know where everyone is and who they’re with, but I’m not going to go back and watch all of the episodes or anything, should be fun!
