Wow, sorry readers. I just realized I was so jammed up last week that I didn’t get to post on the passing of one of my favorite characters, The Queen of Thorns. May she rest in peace. “The Queen’s Justice” was a great episode, but this week’s was even better. We finally got to see some real dragon ass-kicking.
I’ll admit I was disappointed by the Jaime death fake out, which seemed a bit cheap considering the usual high quality of this show. As FW pointed out, D2 would have made it crystal clear if the hottest knight in Westeros was really dead (“hottest knight” being my phrase, not his). FW also has a theory, which I think is plausible, that Jaime has to stick around so that we believe he killed Cersei, when in fact the killer is Arya, disguised as Jaime. Did you get all that?
I enjoyed the Jon Snow/Theon reunion if only because all the worlds are coming full circle now and colliding. I presume they’ll band together to defeat Euron and save Yara, but since that is an easily-predicted theory, I’m probably wrong.
I feel like the show is really building us up for a spectacular Cersei fall/death. I may have more thoughts on this episode once I rewatch it this week.
