Welcome back to my unexpected but still enjoyable analyses of this season of GoT. I’m kind of wishing I could write these on Monday or Tuesday, because while marinating is nice, forgetting is not. Thankfully, I do take notes and have a fairly good idea of what I’d like to say. That…generally changes and evolves as I go along, but onward and upward.
First I have to say that episode three has been the best one so far. Two was better than one; three was better than two. Hopefully Benioff and Weiss keep up this trend.
Smirking Margaery demands it
Again one of the theorists I follow, Bar de Porto, was the first one to come out with an analysis (she really must just record them right away, because they’re up by Monday morning). This one is spoilerific btw (see the red dot).
I would also recommend watching this one from her, too. It’s not an episode video, but rather an analysis of Tyrion and Greyscale in the Sorrows.
Note: I did try to embed the videos, but for some reason they kept showing up as links, so plan B it is.
Honestly, after watching that, all I could think about was drowning. The end of T.S. Eliot’s The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock kept running through my head; I thought about the Drowned God of course; and kept visualizing Aeris’s “burial scene” in FFVII.
“What is dead may never die,
But rises again, harder and stronger.”
Chilling words considering they come from a story about ice zombies.
So in this rambling installment I shall discuss Cutting Cruel in King’s Landing, The Sansa Theories Were True, How Do You Face a Faceless Man, Walled Off Ambitions, and Tyrion’s Troubles With Whores.
Oh and of course SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS!
