This was an interesting week for fans of the books, with new characterizations, confirmation that Sandor lives in the showverse (but isn’t gravedigging), Wun-Wun down for some Bolton asskicking, Margaery passing notes, and Ian McShane returning to an HBO show and not saying his [in]famous Deadwood word that is probably unprintable here.
So what did our brave video friends think of the episode? Let’s ask Sandrine and Americ at HappyCool first this week:
Gay of Thrones
We are book nerd-less with the absence of John, but funny man Brett from Pop Trigger fills in with Matt and Cenk on What the Flick and let’s not lie to each other, most of us watch for Cenk anyway.
History of Westeros: here’s the show-only review for this week
A review/recap from solo video man Smokescreen, there’s a prior video in a Q&A format too
Those are our vids for this week. I can’t leave without mentioning there’s a picture of Jason Momoa reacting to Sandor’s return out there that is great.
Just as the entire Greyjoy fleet and the Stark war lobby seemed to use the Littlefinger jetpack technology to flit around Planetos, this week felt like it propelled us into whatever action we will be seeing with the final episodes. Buckle up and have a great day!
