Some acts felt like retribution, others like sheer misfortune. Regardless, there was not a smile to be found in all of Essos or Westeros on Sunday evening.
An audible gasp was heard throughout the country at exactly 9:46 PM.
One can’t go without mentioning the hero of the episode: big oafy guy who broke Tyrion’s chains for him for no reason. What a nice guy!
Jaqen knows in her heart Arya is not ready to become No One, but he acknowledges, “She is ready to become someone else.” She says nothing, enthralled by the unmoving, yet not really dead faces in the walls. What I would’ve said to that is, “Where do you put the rest of the bodies?”
Tyrion’s last familial ally has turned against him. It’s hard to blame Jaime, but it’s safe to say Tyrion was justified in the crossbow-to-the-chest-on-the-toilet incident.
Margaery knows full well the position she’s put Cersei in, and she has no problem turning the knife with lines like, “I wish we had some wine for you. It’s a bit early in the day for us.” and, “He is half iron, half stag.” Gross.
Revenge is brewing like coffee in a percolator in ‘The House of Black and White.’
A song of cuddle-murder and pissed off dragons.
