I decided to live blog the premiere episode, “The Wars to Come”. Just a little one time thing for the special occasion.
Pre-thoughts: God I hope they kill Sansa, she’s so boring. I hope Jaime Lannister and Daenerys get lots of screen time and maybe we will finally get to see Dorne!
Opening Credits: I always love these credits and how they switch it up depending on the areas of Westeros that are going to be featured in the episode. I hate the Eyrie. Oh hello, Pentos.
5:00–who are these little chicks? The blonde one seems evil…she has an older lady head on a child’s body (but excellent hair)
9:00–AH, it was a Cersei flashback, I knew she seemed evil. Adult Cersei’s rope braid is killing it
10:15–yessssss Jaime. Hopefully it’s not going to be another creepy Cersei/Jaime dead body scene though
11:30–oh nope Cersei is definitely not happy with him. The painted on eyes on Tywin’s dead body aren’t creepy at all
12:50–Oof Tyrion arriving in Pentos looking a little worse for the wear. #cratetraveling
13:44—first “F” bomb
14:35–Tyrion’s first sip of wine, clearly he’s still a fan
15:30–Woof. wine does not seem to be a fan of him anymore….apparently the “puke and rally” exists in the realm
16:30–man they love tearing down monuments in Meereen…and we have our first boobage of the season
18:00–An unsullied orders his “usual” at a brothel which is apparently a topless lullaby….aaaaand he’s dead via throat slicing
19:00–Daenerys looks beautiful (duh). I’m very intrigued by these “Sons of Harpy” assassins, I’m sure we haven’t seen the last of them
21:00–yay Jon Snow…we are getting to see all the good people quickly, I’m glad.
22:00–did Sam lose weight? He’s doing something better…maybe his hair?
23:15–of course the red lady isn’t cold at the wall…crazy fire sorceress—I wish I never got cold
25:15—Interesting plot by “King” Baratheon to use the wildlings to take Winterfell.
26:00–ugh, Sansa…she looks even worse than last season. She’s like the human equivalent of a brick wall
27:00–Robin is such a wussy
28:00–awwww, Brienne is so mean to her squire…her mission has hardened her. She’ll get her purpose back soon, I’m sure of it. Still obsessed with the name “Oathkeeper” for a sword
29:15—your voice is annoying, Sansa
29:50—Margaery is such a hussy…but a smart, calculated, well-dressed hussy. She could learn a thing or two about boundaries though
34:40–“everyone knows everything about everyone”–Oliver commentating on King’s Landing gossip. But do they? Me thinks not.
35:20–Pentos is my fav, I want to go to there (probs Croatia)
36:40–This scene with Tyrion and Varys is the best scene so far
38:05– “who said anything about HIM?”–Varys. Damn straight…Daenerys for prez! Looks like it’s a sea trip for my new fav duo
39:05–this guy talking to Daenerys kind of looks like Lionel Richie
40:10–nice butt, dude who gets to sleep with Daenerys (can’t remember his name). This guy isn’t the best actor though. Daenerys is going to have to let go of some of her stubbornness.
42:40—going into the dragon’s lair, yaaaasssssssss.
43:55–dang girl, you’re going to have to get a grip on those fire-breathers (although the special effects on the dragons are looking better than ever). No surprise they are angry after being locked up. I miss Drogon 😦
46:45–Mance Rayder, grow some balls
47:00–lemme guess, it was the red lady’s idea to burn him alive…shocking
50:00–there’s no way he’s going to kneel
52:00–Melisandre’s choker game is strong
53:00–fuck burning at the stake doesn’t look like a good way to go
53:10—Jon can’t bear to watch! Sam is such a good comforter, no surprise there
53:26–heck yeah, Jon Snow coming in hot with the mercy arrow #likeaboss. He’s so noble buuuuttttt that’s going to cause some problems
Solid episode, what did you think? I got to see most of the characters that I wanted to and there was a lot of good groundwork laid for future episodes. Looking forward to another season full of violence, sex, intrigue, politics, dragons and surprises. Next week: Arya, Dorne and DROGON!
