Winter is coming. All men must die. And Game of Thrones is back!
Stay tuned each week as we unpack Sunday’s episodes through masterpieces.
Last night’s episode could have been titled “A Million Ways to Die in Westeros.” Not only did we witness some gruesome deaths — slaves mercilessly and effortlessly slaughtered by a mountainous man as well as a psychotically jealous queen flying to her death — but we also learned various strategies for staying alive, like caging a deadly wolf, walking in on a bathing queen and looking for prophetic answers in a fire, treating one’s festering wounds, flattering a potential lover with wild flowers, and showing off your birthday suit as a royal messenger. Final lesson: Do you wanna build a snow castle? Just don’t destroy it or else the would-be-lover might seek revenge on your mother!
