SEASON 3 EPISODE 6
This week’s game of thrones was some how the slowest yet one of the most violent simultaneously. I’m not sure what to make of that. It wasn’t the best episode of the season but it did offer several eye opening moments.
Poor Theon. Having to endure torture is one thing but being fed false hope like that is pretty grim. His torturer has yet to reveal his true intentions but its definitely haunting to prolong the answers this way.
The episode was very much focused on arranged marriages and their use in Westeros. So much power at stake. I thought the scene between Olenna and Tywin was fantastic. I hope this isn’t the last time we see these two in a battle of words. Tywin may have won the first battle but the way he avoided speaking about his children’s incestuous ways was great. It was a little disappointing to cut away as Tyrion essentially proposes to Sansa… Sort of. I suppose it made sense given the chilling final shot of Sansa crying as her escape from King’s Landing sailed away.
In the North, Robb continues to make strategic moves marrying off his uncle to pay for his own mistakes. He also offered one of my favourite lines of the episode:
“I win every battle but I’m losing the war.”
In the end, the moment I chose this week belonged not just to Jon Snow but the view atop The Wall.
WINTER IS COMING
Finally, Jon and Ygritte climb the wall. It wasn’t easy but I loved the final shot of the episode. On one side, a winter wasteland. On the other, endless possibilities for future Game of Thrones moments. With only a few episodes left, worlds are bound to start colliding soon! I can’t wait to see it.
Another week… Still no White Walker sightings?
