With an episode title like “The Dragon and the Wolf,” I suppose, deep down, I knew what I was getting. And you better believe that Dany knew what she was getting deep down, if you know what I mean. It’s not something I wanted to see, but the Targaryen family motto has always been “If you can’t keep it in your pants, keep it in the family,” so . . . what the hell(s)?
I hope you don’t like being able to tell characters apart, because half of this episode takes place in a blizzard where a bunch of grizzled white guys compete in the Mr. Animal Furs contest and the other half introduces a bag of faces that implies that from here on in anyone could be anyone else.
If you spent this entire past week wondering whether Drogon was OK, and how Jaime was going to make it out of the river with all that heavy armor and one hand, the answers are … so much plot, so little time. Just move right on along.
So I’m not sure what all these spinoff shows are gonna be after GoT is over, but my latest vote is for a mini-series about Jaime and Bronn on some sort of Oregon Trail-esque quest where they ride horses and throw shade on Dickon Tarly all day long.
Winter is here, as no character will ever stop reminding us. Black is still the color of the season. Other fashion trends include furs with the head left on, statement lipstick that doubles as a poison, and leather-lined breastplates. Please. Don’t forget to leather-line the breast plates.
This week on Game of Fashion Tips, we learn that black is the new everything. You should always wear black no matter who you are. And if you’re travelling to a cold climate for the first time and you’re trying out this new thing called sleeves, there’s really no reason to bother with underwear.
Buckle in, cats and kittens. A record number of Things actually happens, considering it’s a Game of Thrones season premiere and all. I was worried if it would feel like one big “Previously On,” but the plot actually manages to move along a bit in spite of beating us over the head with reminders of who, what, and where all the characters are, and why they all want to bang and/or kill each other.
