Game of Thrones Season 2 Episode 9

I promised you and so here is what happened on Game of Thrones episode 9. Hey, if I get my post of tonight’s Rookie Blue up tomorrow, I’ll be three for three this week! First of all, can you believe we’re already coming to the end of season 2? I can hardly believe it. Hey George, you better hurry up and finish writing the last two books in the series and get them published before the show catches up!

Davos’ son is such a naive little zealot-in-the-making (yes he gets worse as time goes by). It’s almost cute.

Shae has got to be the most loyal whore ever. I actually don’t agree with calling her a whore. To me she seems more like a mistress…at least to my way of understanding the two terms. Anyone agree with me?

I must admit, the guy who plays Bronn is quite faithful to the flavour in which he was written, but he’s portrayed with perhaps a little more class than I read into him.

This battle is where the whole season has been heading…for these players anyway. I know how the battle turns out and so does anyone who has read the books, but I’m still feeling anxious enough to chew on my nail, wondering how they’ll play with the pieces and change things around, because you know HBO won’t deliver it straight up the way it was written originally. There will be a surprise or two even though the outcome is certain.

Holy frick! Wildfire packs quite a punch! Do you see Joffrey smiling? That is the smile of a poster child for the homicidal triad.

Oh Cersei, if you can’t hold your liquid courage you shouldn’t drink. A lonely queen cuts quite the pathetic figure.

It’s more than a little unrealistic to show the Hound cutting men in half with his sword – especially as he’s swinging it single-handedly to boot.

Stannis is one lucky SOB. He’s ugly, unimaginative and rigid, but none of that matters when you’re as lucky as he is. But where is Melisandre? Oh yeah, apparently he left her at home to placate Davos….who can blame you for being afraid of the fire Clegane? Not me…and the look on Joffrey’s face when you told him off was priceless! Run away Joffrey, you little coward…and here comes Tyrion’s act of foolish bravery…what a speech, and a great delivery by Dinklage.

Watch out Sansa, you’re not alone….why did Clegane come to Sansa’s chamber before leaving? Why does he want to save her? What code drives this guy? I never really understood it.

Tyrion looks almost surprised when he’s betrayed by a member of Joffrey’s Kingsguard….but perhaps it’s only supposed to be surprise in Podrick who comes to his rescue.

Ah yes, you’re saved by daddy Cersei…and the Tyrells of course. Can’t wait for the last episode of the season, it ought to be a doozy; especially since we have to return to Quarth to see Danaerys rescue her dragons yet. I’ll do my best to have my review up by mid-week. In the meantime, you can check back tomorrow for my review of tonight’s episode of Rookie Blue: Class Dismissed.

 

And that’s my 2¢ for today.
