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.
Coronation, conversations, counsels, conflagration… and lots of consequences. That about sums up last night’s episode. One of my nine predictions has already come to pass with a young boy becoming king. We witnessed the travails of trying to rule a kingdom without slaves; we learned that it’s wise not to make an enemy of your sister/mother-in-law/mother (especially if they’re weirdly the same person); we were subjected to a wild night of loud sex in a castle high in the clouds; we got a glimpse at how a crazy aunt can link lemons with lust (we threw in the nudity in the image below just to play along GoT style); we oversaw a potential budding romance as a squire helped unfasten a knight’s armor; we heard vengeance in the words of a foreign prince with a knack for poetry; and unsurprisingly, lots of people died by stabbing, beheading, and axe and sword through the head, the usual. Fire and ice were again one as a shack of villainy in a snowy wood was burned to the ground.
