Many people last week proclaimed Battle of the Bastards the greatest episode Game of Thrones had ever delivered – there is an argument to be made for The Winds of Winter holding that title.
Season Six spoilers to follow – duh.
Thousands of men don’t need to die. Only one of us.
What follows clearly will contain spoilers up to the current episode, so if you did watch on Sunday, why are you reading this?
I servered House Stark once. But House Stark is dead.
What follows contains spoilers for Game of Thrones, up through episode 6.07…
Things are about to get down right irresponsible in Westeros. But before we get to 6.08, let’s take a minute to talk about 6.07…
How many shows on TV can get away with a ten second mish-mash of essentially still photos and get away with calling it a teaser trailer? HBO has released the latest promo for season five of Game of Thrones, and chances are it will take you longer to load the video than to watch it.
Let’s go ahead and ignore the words “only two episodes left” and just enjoy this promo for episode 9 of Game of Thrones, “The Rains of Castamere”.
I’ll just say it – Arya is perhaps one of my favorite people on the planet. That chick does not play around. Sure Daenerys is obviously amazing but she’s got a family history going for her, not to mention the obvious dragon benefit, but Arya? Girlfriend has been kicking ass and taking names seemingly from the time she popped out of the birth canal and doing so in very challenging situations. Of course she’s going to stand up to Hound and threaten him, just another day for the young Stark.
Not only is the number of episodes left sad news, but there’s also a week without our beloved Westeros inhabitants thanks to the Memorial Day weekend. While the true intention of Memorial Day is to remember those men and women who have died in service to this country, we all know that it’s the start of summer and really just a reason for people to stand around in backyards and drink around a grill.
Of course the obvious choice for a drinking song to go along with this promo would be The Rains of Castamere itself!
Well that’s all I’ve got this week. Make sure you check back tomorrow for our review of tonight’s episode and I’ll see you next time Game of Thrones fans!
