BrushUpLogo2

Are you tired of waiting for the next episode?  I am too.  I entertain myself by making silly videos.  So here you go!  Your weekly Brush-Up video of last week’s Game of Thrones episode entitled “Home”.  This video should be safe enough for the Unsullied with a warning at the end so they know when to stop.

Video after the jump.

WARNING:  This video is NSFW and definitely not for the kiddos.  And there are spoilers/speculation at the very end with a BIG warning beforehand.  Enjoy my fellow Thronites.

    1. Ummm…in the description in the YT video it’s labeled as a brush up video for The Red Woman.

    2. Thanks for that DP, a bit of irreverence to lighten it up.

      Poor Theon, you made me sniffle over him. Hope he doesn’t exit before finding the redemption he needs..

    3. Good God!! Never suggest such things for Sansa. I will shit some bricks and throw things at the tv if that actually happens. ???? Next time that tool appears on screen I hope it’s to die.

      Side note: That pic of the guy giving birth to a shadow baby was HILARIOUS!! Almost spit out my water.

      Here’s a question, what if Stannis is Ramsey’s gift?

      Would that be like a gift you give to yourself? ? I don’t think it’ll be Stannis. That wouldn’t be a “gift” to Ramsay. It’s likely going to be what we all dread…Rickon. Here’s just hoping that they’re not doing with Rickon what they’re apparently doing with a few characters this season: bringing them back just to kill them off.

      Thanks for catching that, it’s fixed.

      Blanche Holstein,
      I know, poor Theon. Isn’t the show amazing how it can make us care for people who have done horrible things?

      RosanaZugey,
      Do you mean my prediction that Sansa

      will end up pausing with Littlefinger and the Vale troops? If so, I don’t see that as being negative at all. I think she won’t be taking any more of his shit because of the Ramsay fiasco. I think she is gonna control him, not the other way around. At least I hope so!

      Dolorous Methuselah,
      Thank you!

      Firannion,
      Indeed! An important life skill to know how to say “Pass-tee”. Now I’m hungry.

      The Dragon Demands,
      Thank you and I will. As for “paste-eez” I thought those are the little stickers one puts over ones tatas when wearing sleeveless dresses. Either that or a group of whey faced Englishmen. 😉

    8. As per Arya scene. The faceless men (at least the Waif and Kindly Man/Jaqen) can detect if a person is lying (re: Game of Faces). It was possible when Arya was being asked 3 times about her identity, her “girl has no name” was truthful enough that Jaqen believed she was serious about going forward to be “no one”. It still entirely possible given future events she will abandon her training

        Quote  Reply

    9. will there be any consequences for Arya when (if?) she leaves the faceless men? Or is she free to come and go?

        Quote  Reply

    10. Izatty,

      IMHO

      she is not free to come and go because now she knows their secrets. And I think she will leave without permission, which will eventually cause the FM to come after her. I think they will end up killing her. I think this is part of the bittersweet ending that GRRM has told us will occur.

      Tim of House Deddings,

      How do we know that they can tell if someone lies?I’m not doubting you necessarily but I don’t remember hearing this or reading this.

      From the Game of Faces. Remember how she get hit whenever Arya attempts to lie. The telling part too was when Arya said she hates the Hound and got whacked. She may think she hates the hound but Jaqen see through that initial emotion but deep down not necessarily true.

      At least that is what I got out of that scene

    13. Another great rehash, Dame Pasty.

      And here’s an idea, gratis, for Messrs Benioff and Weiss: The Inn of the Kneeling Man opens several franchises along the King’s Road, which would allow us to check in with Roving Manager & Head Baker Hot Pie on a regular basis. Perhaps a sit-com ala “Cheers” might be a possibility?

      (That last sentence was the beer talking.)

    14. Yay It’s the Dame!

      I have to say, you and I are of one mind in your spoiler theories at the end.

      After watching the “Dance of Dragon’s” cartoon from the Season 5 extras, and finding out about the “dragon seeds”, AKA the Targaryen bastards living on Dragonstone who were recruited to try to tame a remaining riderless dragons, and some actually accept half blood riders – that’s my evidence I’m clinging to.

    15. “The next time we see each other, we’ll talk about your mother. I promise.”

      I wonder if Ned and Jon had that chat while Jon was dead?

      Probably not. Jon was probably warged into Ghost.

    16. Dame,
      I do enjoy your vids ( and your sense of humour), so … I’m never sure if you’re calling Edd “Dolores Edd” instead of “Dolorous ( Doll-or-us) Edd” as a joke (kind of like “A boy named Sue”). I’ve been hesitating to ask.

    18. At least the HINT of Tyrion being one of the three headed dragons is mentioned here… Im more and more inclined to think that he may be… I know that prob isn’t a popular theme out there but Im going to stick to it!!

    19. “The next time we see each other, we’ll talk about your mother. I promise.”

      This was the last thing Ned promised Jon in season 1.

      I just figured that since Jon was dead for a while that during that time Jon might have met Ned in “the great beyond” and chatted about who Jon’s mom was.

      There is however a popular theory that Jon’s soul warged into Ghost, instead of entering the 7 Heavens.

      Thus he would only remember a lot of napping on the floor while his body lay dead.

    26. Sou,

      I read comments everywhere in which people complain about the slow pace /boringness/ repetitiveness of the Arya storyline, but I think it’s going too fast. I find it improbable that they would allow Arya back into the HoBaW after only two episodes and very little indication that she was a begger for more than a week. She is becoming a professional assassin the likes of which don’t exist anywhere else on Planetos, an assassin without an identity. I would imagine that takes years and years of humiliating and identity-deconstructing training. I wish Arya all the best in the world, but I find it unconvincing that she isn’t brought lower for a lot longer.

        Quote  Reply

    27. dee,

      Arya coming back to HoBaW does not mean she has been accepted as a FM, she is still an apprentice, in training.I don’t think Arya’s arc includes actually becoming a FM, she will never lose her Stark identity truly. She will pick up some necessary skills from them before she leaves them.

      Well Ghost was howling at the opening scenes of the new season. So Jon would have remembered that if he had warged.. and Ghost was there in the room growling when the NW came to get his body ….so more than likely if he warged he will remember that as well… not sure how they will go with it but at this point I just don’t care.. just so geeked he’s back!!

      It is being compressed, but I think it’s forced by events moving elsewhere so quickly that Arya needs to be ready, sooner; that what should perhaps take weeks/months looks like mere days. (Assuming spoilery/leaky/speculation stuff is correct).

      In the books Arya is still just 11 at this time so the whole thing seems even more improbable really – unless the FM like Polliver and Meryn prefer ’em young!

        Quote  Reply

    30. I agree that Arya will never truly become no one, but I’m not sure it’s her secret plan to play along. I think that she will experience internal conflict, because a part of her does want to let go of all the grief and hopelessness and loneliness and just be no one (because face it, it kind of sucks to be a Stark in ASoIaF/GoT), while another part of her remains unwilling or unable to disavow her true identity. Sort of like how she was able to toss all her possessions into the canal, but at the last moment she chose to hide Needle. She didn’t go down to the canal thinking: “yeah, the rest can go but I’m totally stashing my sword someplace”; she discovered that her willingness to obey the HoBaW had limits.

      In other news, your humor was as spot-on as ever and the brush-up was thought-provoking and just all-around brilliant. I especially liked the ‘joy’ reference at the end.
      Bravo!

      (meaning ‘well done’, not those Braavosi fencing hooligans)

      P.S. Was there ever a Season 5 Episode 10 brush-up that I missed?

        Quote  Reply

    31. Thanks Dame! That was fun. Always enjoy these.

      Re Tyrion

      Targaryen. I think the books drop a lot of hints- the purple eye; Tywin’s abrupt resignation as Hand; the very light hair, the interest in Dragon’s from an early age, the dreams…
      Up until this last episode, the only hints on the show, as far as I know, are his preference for black bacon, and the line Tywin gives him “…because I cannot prove you are not my son”
      If this theory is true, it will be exciting to see unfold, but they will have to give us more backstory. For one, we will need to learn more about the mad king and Tywin’s relationship- not quite sure how they would do all that. We shall see!

      Sunday Funday!

      Thanks for posting that link. I knew I should have dug one up and provided it. But I got distracted watching one of the strangest baseball games I’ve ever seen – complete with an opossum running on the field, an 8 run comeback, and a guy getting smacked in the face by the ball on a routine relay from the outfield and paying the rest of the game with a horrible swollen lip and blood covered shirt.

    33. Whelp… if that JS interview is anywhere close to being true …. no warging… sniff… that sucks. I mean there are so many other characters that can warg AND he is a Stark after all (If the theory holds up)… so why not use let him warg too? Not happy with that part of his story arc if true. But Kit has been known to tell a fib or two for the sake of his job.. so …still holding out hope he can warg!

    34. ghost of winterfell,

      I didn’t say she was accepted as a FM, nor do I think she will ever be one. I just think that the short time frame in the show makes it look like she was a beggar for three days before she was allowed to come back to the House, when it probably should be weeks and weeks on end.
      I imagine for the FM to be as “perfect” as they are, never getting caught, never failing etc., training would be very long and hard and soul-crushing, and from what I’ve seen so far this season, they really seem to shorten it so she’s ready when the show needs her to be. Just remember last year’s cleaning the floors for what felt like months – that is the pace I would imagine her whole training to go at.

    35. Ice Spider,

      Maybe he can warg in the books, to stay inside of Ghost while on the show he was simply dead and resurrected. Maybe that’s why. His last word in the book was Ghost, much like with Robb Greywind. They probably cut their wargining abilities only to Bran. They don’t even have a time to spend time with him inside of Ghost and nothing points to him being able to warg on the show. Unless something happens in the next episode. For the books warging was important and for the show not so much.

        Quote  Reply

    36. Ice Spider,

      I like to think he hasn’t warged Ghost so that he can do so with a dragon or three. Are they mutually exclusive? Only GRRM/D&D know. I’d rather see a dragon-warging a thousand times more than another direwolf, though, so I’m willing to give up on Jon-Ghost.

      P.S. Dame Pasty, love these recaps! Two (dragon)thumbs up!

    37. Ice Spider,

      I think the show has to be careful of overuse of magic. Even though it *is* a high fantasy series, much of the gritty realism is what keeps people coming back and separates it from LotR. It’s never even been so much as alluded to that Show!Jon has warging capabilities. A close bond with his wolf? Sure! But not warging abilities. In the show, only Bran and McKenzie Crook’s wildling character (name is evading me ATM) are wargs. I think if it was terribly essential to the overarching story, they’d keep it. JMO.

    38. dee,

      Exactly, but as you say, audiences (or part of then) don’t like slow (just check out the snl video on Jon Snow’s ressurection – you’d say by just watching that that the whole ressurection business took an eternity to happen).

      I think you may be asking that because you think I’m Dee (short for Deesesfan). In fact I’m not, and I’ve had this name for quite a long time now, but as I’m not as active on here, people get confused. 😉

    41. dee,

      Yes, realistically she should have spent months being blind to have learnt anything of value from that experience. But that would not work on TV, people are already getting impatient with her story. what would have been interesting is if she had started warging during her blind period. I really doubt it’s happening now, the next ep is the last chance to introduce warging in her arc.

    42. I too feel that the parallel between Thoros and Melisandre is compelling: loss of faith, humility, etc. I also completely agree that, although a very just and decent man, Davos is not a leader. He has seen in Jon a style of leadership and a set of values that he can adhere to. And besides, he has been witness to Melisandre’s magic. But it still feels like a big jump to go from that to asking her to try and revive JS. In my opinion, what is missing is that Davos should have known that it had been done before by Thoros (just a little piece of the puzzle that should have been there).

      Before writing a comment, I always try to read what has already been written, so as not to repeat what has been said. But a girl cannot go through all the 26 posts and 5,747 comments since the last open chat! So here are a few thoughts, sorry if it has been said before:
      – what a great feeling it is to go in unchartered territory !
      – we have come to that time where theories, prophesies, dreams and questions are answered: (1) Melisandre’s age; (2) JS is brought back from the dead; (3) Daenerys going east to go west…
      – when the Three-eyed raven said “It is beautiful beneath the sea, but if you stay too long you will drown”, it made me thing of Patches (is that the name?), the fool who accompanies Shireen in the books
      – to see young Old Nan, a speaking Hodor, Ser Roddrick and his mutton chops, and my favorite, Lyanna: I couldn’t stay in my seat!
      – will Jamie learn the reason for Cersei’s penance? He will not like it…
      – we learn that Bran will have to leave the cave: I thought that he would stay there, replacing the Three-eyed raven who is getting old
      – Tyrion can charm anyone or anything with his talent at conversation (or monologue in this case)
      – I am fascinated by the quality of Carine Van Houten’s work. Her Melisandre is so desperate, so lost. You can even feel that she is cold now, as if her God’s warmth had left her. She is indeed a great actress.
      – In the last moments of the episode, when we were waiting for JS to open his eyes, I was afraid that he would have blue eyes. Up until that moment, it was still unclear to me who was reviving him really.
      – and where is Littlefinger? I hope we see him in episode 3. He usually takes so little time to go from one place to another, where could he be that it takes so long?

      Makes you wonder if D & D are just helping to keep some powder dry for GRRM to save some aspects and/or storylines for the books alone, or if this is of absolutely no long term relevance other than to reinforce Arya’s “Stark-ness” at this time.

      Well, I was being serious in my speculation but we will see if it pans out and how it comes across. Hopefully not simplistic and dumb.

      Sister Kisser,
      Re: to Tyrion and the theory: The fact that the show has not really provided much support for it is why I doubt it myself. I think the safest thing for now is to assume that

      Tyrion escaped injury/death because the dragons can sense who is and is not their friend.

      The Four-Eyed Raven,
      I appreciate your wonderful feedback. And after watching last night’s episode I agree on Arya. At the moment she is sure she wants to be a FM but in the long run her inner conflict will return because the seed of who she is just won’t go away, no matter how hard she tries. In regards to my Ep 10 review for last season, I started it but never finished it (life got in the way, so to speak). I might still finish it but probably not while the current season is ongoing. The weekly deadline is hard enough to meet as it is. But thanks for showing interest.

      Sr not appearing in this Series,
      Darnit I proofread it a dozen times! Oh well, Acccck thhhpttt

      dee,
      I LOL at “shameless female gaze” because I always debate myself while making these videos…have I gone too far? Is it too much cussing? Will I offend people? Is it right for me to lust after Jon in these vids (especially since I’m old enough to be Kit’s mother (definite ewww factor)? Ultimately I try to go with whatever I find funny and shame be damned.

      obsidian,
      I mean “Doll-orous” and not Dolores. But for some reason I struggle with the word. I WISH I had done it to be funny though. 🙂
