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 6.4 – Book of the Stranger

GOT Sansa Brienne Pod[Previously!] GUYS. Remember how some folks were thinking the show would dip down in storytelling and energy? Ha. HA HA HA. Nope! It just gets better and better. This episode was all about families reuniting (kind of) and what was amazing for me, a woman who has watched the women of this show be abused in the most horrific of ways, was how once again, the women told the men, “Chin up” and “Just sit back. I got this.” Nope, I’ll never get enough of that. Let’s get to it, because there is a LOT.

Obligatory reminder that I am Unsullied. Don’t give me that horse pucky about “But we’re all past the books” because everything in the books is not on the show, and no one likes a show off, okay? Don’t flex your book knowledge here for you shall make me sad. It’s funny to watch me guess and flail, right? Right! Show talk only, please and thank you. Continue reading

Previously: Kira acted weird but no one noticed. Kira might also have something in her but no one has bothered to check cause???? Felix finds his half sister blah blah blah do not care. Alison and Donnie dug up dead Leekie to see if he had a maggot bot in his cheek which he did yay! Sarah is acting crazeee.

MK brushes, flosses, makes a bomb and researches DYAD and Topside. She is very clever, that MK.
