Hold the Door

<Game of Thrones spoilers below, you’ve been warned>

Ahead of tonight’s episode of Game of Thrones, let’s briefly review what happened last time:

  • Sansa tells off Little Finger (yay!  Queen of the North!)
  • Sansa and Jon are leaving Castle Black, with new threads Sansa made (you work that needle point, girl)
  • Tormund Giantsbane is smitten like a kitten (and we love it)
  • Arya gets an assignment from the faceless men
  • Renaissance ice zombies are on the move
  • Bran’s direwolf dies
  • We find out Bran-muffin and his time travel are the reason Hodor says Hodor 😦

Speaking of which, we also add to our GoT life lessons:  always try to hold the door, it is after all, the polite thing to do.

Theories and questions for the next few episodes:

  • 2 direwolves (Ghost and Nymeria) are still alive.  Please George R.R., no more direwolf deaths
  • Will Arya be able to complete her mission?  I say 50-50 odds.  But wouldn’t it be neat if Nymeria shows up and her appearance helps Arya decide if she really wants to be a faceless man?  If not now, I’m hoping Nymeria shows up at some point, it would make Arya’s story arc even more interesting.
  • Bri-mund amusement to continue.  And why not?  It’s our much needed glimmer of giggles and comic relief in the stark landscape of GoT (points to me on the pun).
  • Bran-muffin will discover the truth of Jon’s parentage (though I’m guessing this won’t happen until close to the end of the season)
  • Sansa and Jon aim to unite houses of the North under their banner – I think Little Finger and the Knights of the Vale will meet them at Riverrun to join forces.
  • Oh and King’s landing – are we going to see the takedown of the barefoot creeper known as the High Sparrow?  I certainly hope so.

Just a few more hours to go until the next installment of Game of Thrones.  Are you ready?

      1. Agreed. Also the harming of someone who isn’t as bad as some of the characters we’ve seen before, will also cause a bit of a struggle. Should be interesting. I’m still hoping her direwolf shows up though.
