You stupid, stupid girl.
Here I was hoping Sansa would skip out of King’s Landing with The Hound, flipping a bird to Joffrey and Cersei on her way out. But, no. She pulled a Ned Stark and stayed. And now she’s stuck with the Lannisters while Joffrey weds Margaery Tyrell.
Speaking of….what the hell is Margaery wearing?
Leave it to Tywin Lannister to take a giant $h!t on the Red Keep before accepting the title of Savior of the City and Hand of the King.
Everything Tywin does in this scene screams his superiority over everyone in the room, including the king. Someone once told Ned Stark, “The King $h!ts and the Hand wipes.” It looks very much like Tywin Lannister will be turning that idiom inside out.
Side note: does anyone else feel like being awarded Harrenhal is like being awarded a promotion by Darth Vader?
Game of Thrones has gone to some trouble to show all the horrors of war this season. From the Tickler and his rats at Harrenhal, to injuries on the battlefield, to those poor tavern girls who were raped and murdered by Robb Stark’s men. Kinda makes me hate everyone except Brienne.
She may not be perfect, but she doesn’t strike me as the type to kill people for bull$h!t reasons.
Daenerys made another leap forward in becoming a force to be reckoned with after spending most of the season spinning her wheels and yelling at people. She gave the warlocks of Qarth a big, firey finger via her dragon babies.
I’m curious to see how Arya is going to handle arriving home to Winterfell only to find it abandoned and burned. All of House Greyjoy is going to wind up on Arya’s kill list.
But, all that is going to have to get set aside because there are bigger, scarier things coming to wreak havoc on Westeros, like this:
