Thoughts I Had While Watching Game of Thrones’ ‘The House of Black and White’

juego-de-tronos-game-of-thrones-5x02-02Ah, Game of Thrones, I hope you run for 20 seasons. Can we make that happen? Because I’m sure everyone would watch it.

GoT is such a hard show to review, though, because of all its different plots and places and whatnot. For season 4,  I would list my favourite moments from each episode, but this year I can’t even do that: there is simply too much going on. So my new format will be a list of, as the headline says, all the thoughts I had while watching the episode. You can expect lots of the things I write to make zero sense. Welcome back!


-Did we REALLY need to watch Oberyn’s death again in the ‘previously’ recap?

-Tom Wlaschiha’s name is in the opening credits! I’ve been waiting for this since 2012.

-Have I missed Dorne in the intro? I mean, I know it will be part of the episode. Where is it???

-Arya looks pissed and/or scared.

-Wait, no, she is not afraid, apparently. She’s the best.

-When I have my own house, I want a Colossus of Rhodes at the entrance, like that one.

-Is the statue wearing any pants?

-Braavos looks amazing. Very Mediterranean. Want it.

-Okay, now it definitely looks like some sort of medieval Venice.

-“Any men of Braavos would have done the same.” Everybody should leave Westeros, this is so much better already.

-Arya needs to get a jet ski if she’s sticking around for a while.

-Oh my God, what is Mace Windu doing in Venice? He is NOT impressed by the coin.

-Who is Meryn Trant again? I get lost sometimes with minor names.

-Ahh, okay. He is the kinsguard who would beat Sansa on behalf of Joffrey. Thanks, Wikipedia.

-Why doesn’t Pod have a horse? I thought he had like a pony or something.

-Oh, please, are Brienne and Sansa going to “almost” meet in every episode this season?

-I take back my words, Pod saw them! Well done.

Brienne-and-Sansa-630x361-I sense a fight coming.

– Petyr, stop showing Brienne up in front of everybody!

-I’m feeling so bad for Brienne right now.

-Ouch! That guy will sleep with a stiff neck tonight.

-That snake present is the coolest way to threaten someone I have ever seen.

-And “smirking whore” is one of the coolest insult I’ve heard coming from Cersei.

-Jaime is going to Dorne to get his daughter back. I don’t buy it. He just wants to get the hell out of there and have some nice, Mediterranean coast holidays; get some tan on that golden hand.

-Bronn! So happy he is still there.

-Someone please make Bronn’s betrothed stop talking.

-Of course Jaime is taking Bronn with him. He does have just one hand, after all. That and his good looks.


-I already love Dorne. I can see why Jaime wants to spend some time off there. This is the show’s Spain, just like Bravoos is its Italy.

-Has Ellaria’s accent always been this thick? I don’t remember her accent being so exaggeratingly Spanish last season. Maybe it’s because she was now surrounded by a Spanish crew?

descarga-I kind of like Prince Doran. He seems peaceful and with no thirst for revenge, which means he is obviously up to something.

-I mean, he doesn’t even bat an eyelid. So level-headed.

-Danerys. Slaves. Ruling. Zzzzzzz. I love her, but, zzzzzzzzz.

-Daario sure knows how to slain people. And get naked, something he doesn’t do in this episode.

-That council meeting: Zzzzzzzzzz.

-When will Tyrion get to Mereen? Wake me up when that happens. Dany is wearing a nice dress, though.

-“How many dwarves are there in the world? Is Cersei going to kill them all?” You bet she will.

-That is one depressing council.

-Master of Whispers? Is that the official name? I want that job.

-Poor Shireen, her mum is the worst.

-I had forgotten how much I don’t like Alliser Thorne.

-“Jon Stark.” I don’t like the sound of that.

-Of course he doesn’t want it because of honour, vows, etc. He is so his father’s son.

-Oh, Samwell, I see what you did there.

-Alliser, shut up.

-Oh my. Aemon is the best. He just made Jon the new Lord Commander. And half the people there didn’t vote for him. OOPS.

-People are scared at the sight of Mace Windu. They can probably feel the force.


“Come with me if you want to live. And by live, I mean become a serial killer”


-Mace Windu is Jaqen!!! He is finally back! Oh, but he doesn’t want people to call him Jaqen, because he has no name. A bit conceited, but I love you all the same, former Jaqen.

-Another great dress. This is right now the only thing I care about when Dany shows up.

-Oh, I knew she would kill that former slave. So obvious. She must be so scared she might become the Mad Queen…

-What’s all that hissing about? This wouldn’t have happened with Jorah.

-Awww, Drogon came back to his mum.

-This is actually very moving. That cute, gigantic, fire-breathing monster has passed his teenage rebellious phase and has come home. Now I finally care.
