Game of Thrones Recap Spectacular: The Dragon and the Wolf

GoT BannerSo, 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 Geekenfreude Style – Mother’s Mercy

Game of Thrones RecapYet 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

Game of Throne Recap Spectacular! – The Dance of Dragons


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

Game of Thrones Recap Spectacular! – Hardhome


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.

Game of Thrones Geekenfreude Style – The Gift

midlogoWelcome to this week’s Game of Thrones recap. Things are certainly bustling along with everyone’s storylines… well, with most storylines. And being that this episode shares a title with one of the best Buffy the Vampire Slayer episodes EV-ER, I was expecting BIG things.

Anyway, that’s enough of an intro, let’s get right to it! Continue reading

Game of Thrones Geekenfreude Style – Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken

midlogoGreetings, everyone! This week’s episode of Game of Thrones has certainly gotten a lot of reaction from all over the webbernetz (and via some choice texts that I received from friends), and not all of it has been good, especially so where the horrifying end of the episode is concerned. And we’re talking bad to the point where some people have sworn off the show forever. Continue reading

Game of Thrones Recap Spectacular! – Kill the Boy


Welcome, dear reader! We’d like to think we have more than one, but who knows? Thanks for hanging with us again this week, so sit back, grab your finest Dornish wine, and dive right in…

JIM: We begin this episode with Miss Andi keeping a vigil at my bedside, waiting for me to wake up and tell her everything will be fine. Ok, shut up, it’s Grey Worm’s bedside but a boy can dream, can’t he? Anyway, we discover immediately that Grey Worm was the victor in last week’s backstreet battle royal. He and Miss Andi finally declare their love for each other and seal it with a kiss. Ser Barristan, on the other hand, lies in state while Dany decides to threaten the Mereenese elite by allowing her dragons to turn one of them into a sizzling fajita. Perplexed about how to handle this whole situation, Dany turns to Miss Andi for advice, who deftly demurs while pumping up her Khaleesi’s confidence.

Is this the beginning of a new role for Miss Andi as the gal behind the gal? Also, did I go see Furious 7 last week and let out an excited “Ooh!” in the theater when I realized Miss Andi was playing a hacker named Ramsey?

Will Dany’s plan to marry Hizdahr the Lorax and re-open the fighting pits finally bring peace to this city? How will Daario take the news of her impending nuptials?
