Game of Thrones S7E7, season finale recap: Say Yes to the Incest

Game of Thrones S7E7, season finale recap: Say Yes to the Incest
So…is it me or are the Game of Thrones “Inside the Episodes” explainers just the showrunners patting themselves on the back for all the hard work they did in that week’s episode? Not that the interviews are worthless — Benioff and Weiss do sometimes provide a bit more character insight. But I feel like they’re mostly just kinda... Read more »

Game of Thrones S7E5: Gendry's back!

Game of Thrones S7E5: Gendry's back!
Previously on Game of Thrones: Ser Davos was the best. Daenerys was the worst. Littlefinger lurked. Jorah pined. Daenerys over-enunciated “strategy.” This week on Game of Thrones: Ser Davos is the best. Daenerys is the worst. Littlefinger lurks. Jorah pines. Daenerys over-enunciates “destroy.” Also… Daenerys’ ego is writing checks her body can’t cash. She demands that all... Read more »

Game of Thrones S7E4: Daenerys is Donald Trump

Previously on Game of Thrones: Daeneyrs was the worst. Ser Davos was the best. This week: Daenerys is the worst. Ser Davos is the best. I enjoyed this episode. I liked the old crew getting back together at Winterfell. Even if they’re all emotionless weirdos now, the Starks Reunited gives me some hope. I also... Read more »

Game of Thrones S7E3: a finger in the bum is worth two in the bush

Daenerys is the worst. Ser Davos is the best. Missandei is Daenerys’ most trusted advisor? I thought she was her most trusted braider and bather. Then what is Tyrion? I’m so confused. Tyrion’s devotion to Daenerys is rather peculiar. He seems desperate, latching onto something, someone, for some sense of identity since he decided he... Read more »

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? Because s/he who devotes too much energy to getting the best map is clearly focused on the wrong... Read more »

Game of Thrones' Best Inanimate Objects: Robb Stark's War Map, Hot Pie's Wolf Bread, Theon's Sausage

Game of Thrones’ best inanimate characters…ranked. 1) Robb Stark’s war map. Barely edged out our #2, Stannis’ war map, because of its superior adorable wolf and lion figurines. The map itself is sadly efficient: only 2-D, foldable, packs well for travel. 2) Stannis’ war map. It has its own strategy room! Superior size, scale, topography,... Read more »
