Game of Thrones S7E2: The Return of Hot Pie

Game of Thrones S7E2: The Return of Hot Pie
Hot Pie! Returns. And he feeds Arya some hot pie. That’s really the only important thing to recall from this episode. Other thoughts: Melisandre also returns, and ugh. She falls into the same bucket as Littlefinger. The one that forces Brienne to question aloud for all of us, “why is s/he still here?” Melisandre serves... Read more »

Game of Thrones Season 7 Premiere: Battle of the Battle Maps

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: this show has always been about the Battle Maps. S/He who has the second best map will take all–you heard it here first. Why second best, you ask?
