Winter is coming. All men must die
. And Game of Thrones is back!
Stay tuned each week as we unpack Sunday’s episodes through medieval masterpieces.
The season premiere didn’t waste any time jumping right into the action. We had a typical, sizzling brothel scene; a tense arrival of foreigners, some hearty, growing teenage dragons; a bloody tavern fight, the fitting of a golden hand; and some creepy crucifixion-like deaths, pointing toward something much darker down the road.
Advice from our curator: Joffrey, the next time you manhandle a rare and expensive manuscript containing the deeds of your Kingsguard, make sure to do so with clean hands. Saves some time for our conservators later. (And doesn’t the White Book scream Flower of Battle?)
