Game of Thrones Episode 8

Theon, Theon, Theon. He envied the Starks and came to value Winterfell above all other places but he forgot that his people, in particular daddy dearest, don’t share those values.

Jon is Ygritte’s prisoner now; she even kept him from being killed outright. A life for a life. Since Jon’s been reunited with Qhorin, it won’t be long until he has to kill him. But it looks like they’re setting Jon up to “do what he has to” without instructions from the Halfhand, which changes the tone of things in my mind.

Catelyn Stark really is an absolute idiot. When I read the books I was surprised no one killed her earlier – oops, sorry, spoiler alert! She survives this season though.

What is it? Why it’s dragonglass boys. Other than Valyrian steel it’s the only thing that will kill one of the Others. Better not lose it.

Tyrion does such a good job hiding his feelings…at least in front of his sister. On another note, Dinklage is by far the best actor in the group.

Talisa just interrupts Robb’s meeting like that? Doesn’t he have guards? Well, it took them a while, but they’re rolling around now…

Joffrey really is a cocky little prick. I would be ok if they changed the story line to have him die sooner, but somehow I don’t think that will happen.

Arya has escaped with Gendry and Hotpie, thanks to help from Jaquen…it was much less dramatic than in the books.

In an underwhelming episode the best scene was by far the conversation between Tyrion and Varys. It was positively dripping with innuendo and double meanings. If you, like me, were a little bored after this episode, don’t fret. I’m told Episode 9 is a big improvement. Speaking of which, I’ll watch it tonight and report back to you tomorrow, so be sure to come back.

 

And that’s my 2¢ for today.
