Someone cue Justin Timberlake because I’ve GOT some feelings about the most recent Game of Thrones episode, “Eastwatch.”
(Also, see what I did there, eh? eh?) Okay, let’s get into it…
Pretty annoyed that for a week we all had to speculate whether or not Jamie was alive (even though you were stupid if you thought they’d kill him off that way), only to find out in the very first scene he lived. Oh and now he has to go run and tell his bitch controlling sister what happened…
Also, are we to believe Dany when she says she’s nothing like Cersei, yet uses fear (aka her dragon) to force the Lannister army to “bend the knee?” IDK about you, but myself (and I’ve heard from others) are worried Daenerys is starting to lose it a bit and become more of a power hungry tyrant (like another blonde in the show) rather than someone who wants to save mankind (I think Tyrion thinks this as well; great minds, am I right?!). Wasn’t too sad to see the Tarly men die (#teamsam). Lastly, anyone else think the dragons are super well behaved? I mean I can barely get my seven pound maltese to sit or stay, yet Drogon just chilled the entire time while Dany gave her speech and then the signal to bbq the Tarlys (Tarlies?).
My feelings on Cersei and her whole, “So we fight and die or submit and die; I KNOW MY CHOICE, ” are …. I DON’T CARE! (And you’re stupid, Dany has three dragons; listen to your brother/lover … yuck).
Sooo my husband totally had to make the connection for me that Drogon let Jon “pet” him because DUH JON HAS FREAKING TARGARYEN BLOOD IN HIM! However, I don’t think Daenerys picked up on this (do you? Tweet me, let’s start a chat!) ??
Jon and Dany: talk talk talk; when are you going to get your incest on because we can alllllll feel that sexual tension!
Lastly, remember my math equation from “I’ve Brought Fire & Ice Together” GOT 7×3 Recap ?? Jorah returns and will hopefully tell Jon Snow it was Sam who cured him!
Current Emotion (for so many reasons here!):
Ugh, stupid Bran and his stupid ravens. Wait, did those birds just explode or did they fly away? Also, how is the Night King able to understand and see what Bran is doing? I really hope Bran didn’t fuck something up majorly for the future of the humans by his interaction with the White Walkers and the Night King, but knowing stupid Bran, he probs did.
Skipping the Maesters and Sam for a bit (because honestly I don’t see them believing Sam at this point), we have to talk about Tyrion “I’m her hand, not her head” Lannister. I don’t see why he has to have this secret discussion about Daenerys with Varys, acting all worried about her and the need to “get her under control.” Is this just because she burned the Tarlys (Tarlies?) alive? Do we really care? Also, his plan to capture a White Walker, and then transport it to Cersei to prove this threat is real, hoping the Cersei/Dany war should hit pause? DUMBEST IDEA EVER! Oh and to make it even worse, Jon and Jorah are going to be part of the group to do this! Cool!
Love, love, love seeing Arya and Sansa back together (especially because Maisie and Sophie are BFFs in real life), but we’ll get back to them in a second. Oh and Sansa, I don’t think you’re selfish. No worries girl.
Besides that sister reunion, we’re about to have a bro reunion because Tyrion is getting smuggled into King’s Landing with Davos’s help:
“Last time I was here, I killed my father with a crossbow.”
“Last time I was here, you killed my son with wildfire.”
Honestly I Was SUPES nervous about Tyrion being in KL, but Bronn was faithful and brought Jamie to him (or him to Jamie; IDK Bronn just brought them together). The whole thing was pretty ominous with the dragon skulls around, especially since Tyrion is on the dragon queen’s side, and Jamie’s entire army basically got taken out by a dragon. I was pumped it seemed to go okay, even though Jamie was pissed Tyrion killed their dad (he deserved it though). But what got me REALLY PUMPED?! GENDRY IS BACK!
Seems like Cersei has definitely changed her tune (in one episode) from “We fight and die” to slowing it down and strategizing a bit more because SHE’S FREAKING PREGGERS! Jamie doesn’t want people to know it’s his but Cersei is all “I’m the queen!” I don’t think the baby will make it to the world for one of two possible reasons: A) Cersei will get killed before the baby can be born (oh please!) or B) She loses it. Either way, I’m SO OVER the incest and the two of them!
I really like the Jon and Gendry banter when they meet; their fathers were best friends! Also, is Gendry going to mine dragon glass to help fight the WW just like he mined Valyrian Steel??!?!??! So, yes that makes me happy. You know what else makes me happy? WE FIND OUT THAT JON IS LINE FOR THE THRONE BEFORE DANY! (Thanks Gilly!) I’m also really proud of Sam for getting the heck out of there and going to help Jon (at least that’s where I assume he’s going).
“I’m tired of reading about the achievements of better men”
UGH! Little Finger! UGH ROLL MY EYES INTO THE BACK OF MY HEAD! I was really upset by all of this until I listened to my GOT podcasts (shout out to The Morning Breath and Cast of Kings!) and found out the history of that message. Plus, if Arya is stupid enough to believe it, she deserves to die (okay maybe not die, but …I don’t know, a few days without breakfast or something).
Last scene: Jon, The Hound, Jorah, Gendry, those weird Brotherhood people, the Wildlings (am I forgetting anyone?) are off to capture a White Walker.
I’m going to leave you with just a few quotes:
“Here we all are, on the edge of the world.” – the show
“We’re all on the same side” “How can we be?” “We’re all breathing” – the show
“It’s just an interesting group of people” – my husband
