Game of Thrones 6.9 – The Battle of the Bastards

Ramsay Bolton battle bastards

I HATE THIS PERSON (the character–the actor is so freaking awesome) WITH EVERYTHING IN ME. EFF YOU RAMSAY BOLTON.

[Previously] [Unhappy Part Two] Well, this was an exciting week. I won’t belabor the point (you can always click back to catch up and please note that the particular issue I’m referring to is handled and done) but I’ll say that THERE IS TO BE NO BOOK TALK HERE. You have the whole damn internet for it. You just do not have my website. It’s been borderline lately, and you guys know it. Lots of minutiae in the comments that is CLEARLY book stuff. Some of you want to really get into fine details from the books in comments, and I’m telling you right now: KNOCK IT OFF. Talk about the show, talk to each other, but leave the books and most importantly SPOILERS out of the discussion. Thanks ever so.


Orphan Black 4.9 – The Mitigation of Competition

Prim and Proper meet Loud and Messy.

Prim and Proper work with Loud and Messy. And it’s awesome.

Previously: Donnie went to jail and was being threatened by a murderous Neolutionist inmate. Alison was being blackmailed by Duko to betray her fellow sestras. Cosima joined forces with Susan to fine a cure once and for all. Duko forgot to wear his Earmuff of Evil and was killed by S.

SO SO SO sorry about the late recap. It’s been a struggle to balance my exciting life with all the travel and beautiful people and yacht parties and professional recapper stuff. Ok, all of that is a lie. It’s just work work work and lame boring yawn stuff. XXX OOO

Orphan Black 4.08 – The Redesign of Natural Objects

Friendship. Love. Betrayal. Local theatre. Alison has a choice to make.

Love. Betrayal. Local theatre. Alison has a choice to make.

Previously: Sarah felt the weight of the world on her shoulders and went on an epic bender and almost kills herself and Felix saves her and Evie is still bad and Duko wore earmuffs and Donnie went to jail! It was a wild ride.

Game of Thrones 6.7 – The Broken Man

Edmure Tully Blackfish Frey


[Previously!] Hey there! We’re jumping straight into it, both the recap and the show, evidently, so there’s your warning. Also: NO INTRO?!? Instead of my familiar sweeping game board, it’s Ian McShane (!!) leading the construction of… who knows this early but HOLD THE DAMN PHONE. THE HOUND ISN’T DEAD?! The Hound? HE IS ALIVE.

Okay, this season is throwing out the old playbook. Instead of the characters we’re most interested in dying, SOME OF THEM ARE TURNING UP ALIVE. Glory Be! And oh, okay, there’s my intro, and it’s almost anti-climactic after that shocker. (But I clapped and hummed along, because of course I did. Are you new?!  Wait…are you?)

HI, NEW PEOPLE. I am Unsullied. We take it seriously here. No book talk. You literally have everywhere else, but this place is Show Only because you guys get to laugh at how emotional I get. WHEE!  (No seriously, it’s fun. I get super emotional; it’s totally ridiculous.) Continue reading

Game of Thrones 6.6 – Blood of my Blood

Bran Stark Meera Jojoen

Hey, Bran! Hope it was worth it. I JUST HOPE IT WAS WORTH IT, KID. [gross sobbing]

[Previously] Hey there! Still sobbing and aching where my heart once was every time I see “Hold the door,” how about you??? Welcome to our group counsel. Donuts and coffee in the back.

Orphan Black 4.07 – The Antisocialism of Sex

Sarah knows how to drink!

Sarah knows how to drink in a sensual manner

Previously: Everything went to shit.

Last week I thought the episode ended with Evie walking to the trains, but commenter and local cool guy Derrick pointed out that it was Beth, walking to her death. OHHHHHH! That is so right! As a professional recapper who considers what she does an art form, I appreciate the keen eye. (ed note: still not a professional recapper)

AND! Before you do anything, you need to see how fun and awesome and amazing Tatiana Maslany and Kristin Bruun are.

Orphan Black 4.6 – The Scandal of Altruism

Sad Beth

Sad Beth and sad endings

Previously! Cosima and Donnie went to Brightborn. Cosima snuck around and saw literally everything. Susan took a sexy swim with Ira and they kissed awkwardly. Krystal was so close yet so far on figuring things out.

Episode 6 is a big one you guys! Last season it was the episode where Hot Paul dies and no I don’t even want to talk about it. In this episode we finally get to see the rest of Beth’s last night before dying. Who’s blood is on her hands? Why did she kill herself? Where did she go when she left her condo in the wig? Who did she see? The answers, my friend, are coming up! Right. Now.

Game of Thrones 6.5 – The Door

[PREVIOUSLY] Guys, this is going up early. I’ll catch typos and put more images in after I’ve had a good, hard cry. YOU KNOW WHY. Not saying above the cut to spare anyone who hasn’t seen it yet.

game of thrones children


Good hell, this season just. Gets. Better. Warning: EMOTIONS AHEAD. Also: EPIC POETRY FOR THAT ONE CHARACTER. (Stick to show talk, not book talk, I’m Unsullied, etc etc., thankee sai.) Also, for any new folks: I literally have a few glasses of wine and watch the show, writing as I watch. Fun!  Continue reading
