Game of Thrones 8.6 – The Iron Throne

Ya girl, who loves a silly joke.

First, and first mostly. I’m so happy to have shared these 8 seasons and all of these years with you. I came Unsullied, and you kept me that way for almost a decade. If nothing else, that is a feat almost unheard of. You’ve been so kind to me, laughed with me, cried with me, and were kind when I got things wrong.

Thank you.

And if I may? I watched all of S8 this weekend, and… it works. It all works. Are there mistakes? Of course. Can’t be helped. The source material ended, and that’s that. This is what we have, I didn’t know the books, and while I know there were questionable choices, this is still one of the finest television shows in history, and we got to experience it.

Okay. Let’s do this. PREVIOUSLY! Continue reading

Game of Thrones 8.5 – The Bells

Previously! {Edited to add: I am UNSULLIED. We don’t talk book knowledge at all here, if you’re new. Show only! Thank you very much!}

Me, for the hour and change of this episode.

As has become my norm, I wrote this as I watched, so you’re getting my gut reactions to moments, but I promise I end with some thinky bits. Also, as a fan of Metallica’s old (prime) bits, THIS SURE REFLECTED FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS. (Time! Marches! On!)

“If you think you’re getting a happy ending, you haven’t been paying attention.” I mean, we were told this a while ago… Continue reading

Game of Thrones 8.4 – The Last of the Starks

Previously!!

NOT HERE FOR IT, MISOGYNISTS. Lol.

Hey so that was stressful and suspenseful and also FILLED WITH DRUNKEN, HORNY JOY and then LOTS OF GASPING IN HORROR. Let’s get straight to it. Continue reading

Game of Thrones 8.3 – The Long Night

Previously!

Alexa: beer me strength.

key and peele

WHO’S READY? I have my wine open, my laptop precariously placed on my lap, and I’m going to write this AS IT AIRS. What could go wrong?

…Alexa: Prime me some wine stain remover. [Preemptive move.]

AND NOW MY WATCH BEGINS. Continue reading

Game of Thrones 8.2 – A Knight of Seven Kingdoms

Me watching each week:

Previously!

I would like to remind all that I love Tormund Giantsbane, aka Gjödkr the Bær Fücker with all my heart. And I thought I wanted something, but when it happened… Well. Gah.

IF YOU ARE NEW HERE: I am Unsullied. I know, preposterous, right? And yet! No book talk. None. Plenty of show to talk about, so you. Are. Good! ANd how fun is it to watch me get things wrongs? SO FUN. To the episode! Let’s press on.

Game of Thrones 8.1 – Winterfell

The night is dark and full of spiderlords…

I HAVE MISSED THIS SHOW SO MUCH.
…wait.

Previously!

First off, hello and holy smokes, have I missed you, the show, the discussions, all. of. it.

NOTE: If you’re new to this site, welcome! I’m a mess! I’m also Unsullied and have sworn a vow not to read the books until the show is over (I know. I know. And what you want to tell me—you’re not the first. I’ve literally owned the books this entire time and had to wait. Pure torture, let me tell you.)

So we have a rule here: no book talk. No, not even about that. You’re old enough to know that there are things in the books that didn’t make it to the show (yet?) so be a dear and shut up. Only show talk, no spoilers! Bless and thankee sai.

TO THE SHOW. Continue reading

Game of Thrones 7.7 – The Dragon and The Wolf

Previously!

ME. YOU. EVERYONE WHO WATCHED THIS EPISODE, PROBABLY.

Hey! So things you should know about me today: I’ve been drinking since 6pm and I roasted a chicken in honor of the Hound and Gjördkr the Chîcken Eåter, aka Gjördkr the Bær Fuçkër, aka Tormund the Wildling. I’m very stressed. I’m writing this as I watch. Here we go.

Edited after watching: OH MY GOD. Oh my god, the old and the new gods. The small and mighty gods. FROM THE TITANS TO BASICALLY, CEREON, the Greek God of mixing wine. ALL OF THE GODS, I CALL UNTO YOU.

So, all of y’all complaining about pacing and ambling storytelling and… [blasts “HOW YOU LIKE ME NOW” on 11]

Someone, light the fires to call Gondor, because SHIT JUST GOT REAL.

Game of Thrones 7.6 – Beyond The Wall

Note; I’m having server issues that are preventing me from adding images other than this one right here. Bah. I’ll have that fixed by Monday! Thanks for your patience.

Previously, we’re reminded of all the manipulation that Sansa has endured since Season 1. I’m sure this isn’t important. AT ALL.

Jim Office Game Thrones

ME. YOU. ALL OF US, honestly. MINUS ARYA. Dammit, Arya!!

The opening shot of the war table in Dragonstone only to cut to Beyond The Wall is… [kisses fingers]. Can I just put out there how freaking beautiful this show is? Because it is. IT IS GLORIOUS. Also, glorious, Gjödkr the P?rv Nòmm (Tormund) teasing Gendry. And his little speech to Jon about bending the knee as a medicine for prolonging life.

This is such a total bro-fest.

Winter: Here.
Quest for a Walker: On
Dicks: Out.

Lord, put them back, it’s like -20!! Continue reading

Game of Thrones 7.5 – Eastwatch

key and peele

OH HO HO, I SPY A GENDRY IN THE OPENING CREDITS… [readies second bottle of wine] OH SHIT EASTWATCH IS IN THE CREDITS TOO???

Let’s get real: [readies third bottle of wine]

…kidding. Unless you got a spare liver for me?

Game of Thrones 7.4 – The Spoils of War

Previously! But this week:

[HIGH-PITCHED RINGING IN MY EARS]

Simpsons Arya Stark Feeling

I USED MINE ALL UP WATCHING THIS EPISODE.

We open with the Lannisters on the march, a wagon full of gold, save being a bag light as payment to Bronn. Man, I loved Bronn and Jaime’s banter over the years. They would have made a great buddy cop spinoff, solving crime, sassing each other, ending every week with a cold beer and a quip, a freeze frame on them just starting to laugh as the credits roll.

I MIGHT REALLY NEED THAT RIGHT NOW. Continue reading
