This week was a bit anti-climactic no? I mean I thought there would be more with Jon Snow, and we all knew that Robb Stark was going to start screwing the doctor lady sooner than later, and Daenerys is getting super annoying and all I want is for her and Jorah to finally get with is and hit the sheets. I was a bit surprised to see Catelyn had freed Jaime Lannister though. And when did Theon Greyjoy get to be such a whiny bitch? I hope they f*ck him up good before they kill him.
Arya is still my fave though. I mean she’s what, 11 on the show? Maybe 12? And she’s smart. I mentioned this before that GoT probably has the largest cast of strong female characters on any show on television right now. And the best part is that they’re not singled out for being smart, women are just written to be as interesting and as strong as the men are. Between Cersai, Sansa, Catelyn, Brienne, Arya, Schae, Daenerys and the doctor lady who’s doing Robb Snow (I have to look up her name) all these women, whether you like them or not, are very strong characters who can take care of themselves. It’s nice to watch a show where the women are just as important as the men.
Check out the preview for next week – looks like it’s going to be all about Stannis and Tyrion. And I can’t wait. Joffrey, who was all talk this past week about how he’s so excited to go to war looks like he runs and hides like the little girl he is, allowing his Hand, Tyrion, to step up and take charge. I haven’t read the books so I don’t know how this plays out but I will admit I like Stannis a lot. I loved the scene where he asked Davos to be his hand should be take the throne. I’m very torn in this battle between Stannis and Tyrion I must say. One thing is for certain though, after 8 episodes of waiting, war is finally here. Can’t wait!
