Uh oh, Tyrion could be in hot water. Dammit boi. Dany was counting on those Lannister troops, and all you get is the singlehanded one. But good ol' Jorah of all people comes to his aid, appealing to Dany's forgiving side. I assume Varys would concur--but where the heck did he get to after the first scene?!?! We haven't gotten nearly enough of him yet!! It'll be coming in due time. Evidently he'll be with the crypt ("safe?") people when the fighting starts...no getting him out of his robes and into some armor and showing him how to wield a weapon, eh? I mean, I do want him to be safe. Still would've been good to have him with the fireside chat group later on. He and Jorah would both be good hands; Dany has kind of an embarrassment of riches. Anyhow. So. Gendry's the one to whom Arya speaks her trailer line...and also loses her virginity later, awww. Sweet. x-3 "I'm not the Red Woman." *whips off face revealing Mel* XD But that's also later.
Bran has transcended anger and is now dropping lines like, "How do you know there's going to be an afterwards?" X_X Good point; there may well not be. That was a good scene with Jaime, who had another good one with Tyrion. Who believes the northerners will eventually see Dany for what she is and come around to the new queen. Indeed. Hopefully. Cersei's pregnancy apparently isn't fake, although she could still miscarry, or have already done so. She uses the truth to tell lies--ha, that's for sure. There were too many great conversations and touching moments before the inevitable bloodbath. ;; *drags cigarette* "We're all gonna die." *flicks butt*
Good plan to go kill Cersei as a wight, though. But tbh I might prefer Jaime or Arya getting to do that. Oh hell, it'd be great any old way. ANYone can do it! Tyrion's fantasy would be swell.
I don't know how much I envy Brienne's situation. If I had to choose between Tormund and Jaime, man...xDD #jelly I'll take her man sandwich.
Not that there's much time for romance, or improving at swordplay, or anything else. Unlike the premiere, we now feel the sense of urgency and are witnessing appropriate preparations underway. Conscription's going on. There's very little time left, and a growing sense of unity.
Never trust Cersei! Dany tries to befriend Sansa and find common ground, which very nearly works...yes, Sans, you should have thanked her earlier. But because you're still holding firmly to northern independence and Dany still seems unwilling to bend on that...it wasn't a wholly successful meeting. Idk. Dany may have to mull things over and become a bit more flexible. She definitely got agitated there; the lightheartedness drained sharply. (And I mean, seeking the throne is not the *only* goal she's ever known...there's the whole home/family/belonging/house-with-the-red-door thing as well...:/)
"Someone taller"--so like, you could be referring to anyone but Tyrion? ;p
Then Theon shows up! And he's gonna guard Bran. There is entirely too much "awww"ing this ep; they're setting us up for a fall, fer sure. People gonna die horribly next week. ><
Gilly! I feel kinda bad admitting that I was most curious to see whether her weight gain was post-filming or not, and obviously not, but it doesn't affect the story. If anything it's cute that couples can begin to take after one another. ^^ Guess Sam's just been feeding her exceedingly well or something.
Now we're strategizing...the NK wants to erase mankind...yeah, sounds like him.
Racist northerners confirmed, lol. Or xenophobic at any rate. Poor Missy. But Naath (NARF!) really needs to learn to friggin protect itself. :p Ha, I'd be the Unsullied in that relationship.
Sam was great this ep, making his Sam-face the whole time. xD The last of the Night's Watch, damn. That trio (with Ghost back by Jon's side, just standing there being budget-friendly) had some hilarious dialog. Sassy Sam reminding snarky Edd & still-underestimating Jon of his accomplishments.
Tyrion & Jaime, discussing the perils of self-betterment, are joined by Brienne, Pod, Davos, Tormund.
"You really think any of us are going to sleep tonight?"--GoT viewers to HBO every damn Sunday
Kingkiller, lol. Think Tormy might be mixing something up. But wow, what an origin story. Not sure the way he drinks from that horn is such a turn-on, but I suppose he makes it work because he's HIM. And ginger. And beautiful. And fortified with giant's milk. And amazing at flirting. This manwich, HONESTLY. It's the perfect setup for my vision of Jaime dying in Brienne's arms, her filling in his pages, and her giving Tormy a chance...>3 And possibly great big world-conquering monster babies. If both of them make it. Torm's already had a coupla very close calls. ;; And it'd suck for her to die so soon after finally being knighted. #Braime #Jaimienne #Tormienne #Briemund
"...but she gives you food and she gives you rest, and she draws you close to her giant breast, and you know things now that you never knew before...not 'til the sky..."--yep, ofc I think "giant breast" and it's Into the Woods straight away
"I think we might live." Good one, Tyrion!! Lmao.
"Fuck tradition." We stan a non-sexist wildling. "I'd knight you ten times over." 8'-> Be still my cold dead black heart. So Jaime knights her, and Tormund starts applauding, and they toast to her, and oohhhhh goddammit. <333 It's such an effin' beautiful moment. 8*D
Ofc Lyanna M.'s gon' fight. Nice exchange with her cousin Jorah. Least we didn't hear her give him a hard time about his past disgrace. Sam gives him Heartsbane, yet another sweet "awww" moment. Yup, definitely too many of them. Bad sign. This spells doom. "I'll wield it in his name, to guard the realms of men." "I'll see you when it's through. I hope we win." Don't we all, Sammy boy. Well, except those who want the NK or Cersei to win. We don't speak of them. ;pp
Pod sang that loverly sad song so niiiice (and apparently Davos can't sing, teehee.) The montage with Theon & Sansa, Arya & Gendry, Sam & Gilly & Little Sam in the crypts, Grey Worm & Missandei (hmm are they tryna make us ship Sanseon/Theonsa??) was gorge.
Re: Jon & Dany @ Lyanna S.'s statue...so now she knows. Understandably she's initially shocked and suspicious. Where's the proof of this claim that comes from Jon's brother and bff? It does make him the last male heir, and he does have a claim to the throne. Would he make that claim? Would he pass it to her? Could they rule together? Would she back down a bit and allow the North to retain its independence or some kind of semi-independence, as she easily did the Iron Islands??? Could it actually turn out to be something of a relief that it's not truly *her duty* to restore the Targaryens, that the weight of the world is more on his shoulders--and he's already accepted because everyone thinks he's a full Westerosi and trusts his leadership?
They could make a great team regardless, as Davos said, but again I think it's a moot point since there's no way in hell they're both seeing the end of the series finale, right?! If both survive all the coming battles it'll be interesting to see what comes of the revelation, should they in fact make it public...but yeah. Reflecting on his life, Jon must be able to feel the truth of it.
It felt, especially on the first watch, as if the writers are trying to (please fake-)foreshadow her turning on Jon/Aegon or some shit, perhaps only to have her make some tremendous sacrifice in the end or something. Ugh, I hope. Don't much care for the single-minded throne obsession thing, and definitely don't want vilification of Dany...
Also, IS she gonna be preggers? That seemed too heavily foreshadowed not to be a thing. Maybe they'll have an heir (hopefully a sane one)...speaking of which, isn't it also irking you guys that you've been unintentionally bonking, and in romantic love with, your aunt/nephew? 'Specially you, Jonny? >p<
Y'all, are, (already) family! <33
Still no sign of Melisandre, though she was referred to. Beric's claim about the Lord of Light and the strategizing scene also sparked my excitement for her return. She'll have to show up and be crucial to all this. I feel as if she's gonna have to interact with a lot of people...most likely candidates being Beric, Sandor, Arya, Varys fo' sho, Bran, Jon, Dany, Davos...I mean pretty much everybody, but them probably the most. Potentially some of the folks at King's Landing too.
Welp, I reckon episode 3'll be the most insane ever. "The dead are already here." "STAND YOUR GROUND!!!!" Preview had shots of so many people--Beric & the Hound, Arya running, Arya w/ Sansa, Sam, Jon, Dany, Tyrion, Jorah, Davos...Viserion? ;-; Dany certainly has a personal vendetta against the NK. B-| Is that Theon with the flaming arrow? And Ser Brienne on the front lines. Meep. Lotta trailer shots though, no surprises/spoilers. Aargh.
Again no deaths this week, not that there was much opportunity for them...but all the deeply touching moments are absolute setup for devastation.
So far I enjoyed the second ep more than the first; it was more satisfying, fulfilling, exciting, just overall stronger. And it seems impossible that at least the third (first of the long'uns and start of the much-hyped "biggest-ever battle!") wouldn't continue that trend. I'm always trying to take stock and account for everyone. Robin & Edmure have yet to turn up. We may see Yara again later on. Bronn's obviously going to show up at some point; to what ends we shall see...and can I still hold out hope for Jaqen, Daario, Meera, Hot Pie?
Also I just spent Easter with relatives who think Beagles are Pugs and our Maltese was a Bichon and Dutch things come from Belgium and I need help. Someone save me. x'3
