for the killing part

ok ok look

i still liked the nymeria reunion. i loved that she looks exactly like she was as a little pup, that was a nice touch. it makes sense for the show to represent that the right thing for nymeria is to live in the wild and be free and that arya understands that BUT

for a second there i forgot the show never really gave the direwolves their true meaning like in the books and so i was hopeful that nymeria didn’t go with arya yet because arya wasn’t ready, because even though she is going back to winterfell, to jon, she isn’t quite herself yet and so nymeria waits. i was hoping when arya truly feels like being home and being herself then nymeria would come for her and that would represent arya feeling like a stark again, feeling whole.

The scene with Hot Pie was my favorite

I mean, yes the 4 ladies and their Table Of War as well as finally seeing Nymeria and her pack was amazing.

But there was something about the Arya/Hot Pie scene. Arya is seeing a friend again - the first time we’ve seen her reconnect with anyone she knew before Braavos-and initially she doesn’t seem to care. She’s not sad, but she’s not excited or particularly happy- I know Hot Pie wasn’t particularly a beloved friend of hers, but she showed less of a reaction than she did meeting total strangers in the pop star cameo scene last week. You’d think she’d be at least as animated as that, but no . A girl needs to eat. And Hot Pie is filling her in about his meeting with Brienne - so many seasons ago- and she’s not really reacting. A girl needs some ale. And you can see Hot Pie is affected by this. He almost looks like he feels sorry for her: like somehow he knows this change could not have been brought about by anything happy or pleasant. She focuses on chewing and barely makes eye contact. When she talks about cooking and preparing human flesh she sort of kicks herself for not browning the butter. It’s unclear how this Arya will fit into society- will she be able to connect to anyone?

And then, the moment he tells her that Jon Snow is at Wintefell, she stops chewing. Drops the half eaten pie. Half heartedly accuses Hot Pie of lying because the possibility of this being true is too much to hope for. And at that moment she almost looks her age again. She almost looks hopeful and happy. Not smiling about a kill she just made- not Faceless Man satisfied. But she looked like Arya again. Like there might be some of that child she used to be still left- despite the fact that her childhood ended long ago.

And she has that one long moment on the horse, where she has to decide to go south or north. And you see her let go of what had been driving her- her mission to kill the queen. Her duty as assassin- even one that is more or less freelancing since abandoning the House of Black and White. She turns her back in it, literally, for the chance to see her brother again. A girl is still Arya Stark.

Hobi may not spit as fast as suga, or as powerfully as rapmon, but his rap skills are so unique and his verses are so multi tonal. You could never get bored listening to him because he uses his voice in such varying ways. I’m in awe of him.


(not to mention how attractive I find his voice)

in all seasons of skam, this was one of the moments when jonas’ friendship felt the strongest. because you can see how genuinely worried he is for isak. isak, the best friend he’s known for years, the best friend he grew with. and it’s so obvious jonas has always cared for isak, it was obvious back in season 1 when he asked eva if he could join them at the cabin so he wouldn’t be alone, because he knew he and eva were pretty much his only friends, and he tried to not make isak feel left out. it was obvious when isak’s dad ran off and his mother wasn’t doing well at all, and jonas stayed with him so he wouldn’t have to be so alone, face everything alone 

jonas knows isak, knows how isak usually behaves, knows that isak doesn’t go around pushing people like that, especially not a friend who was simply teasing him. in that moment, jonas doesn’t simply feel like isak is not behaving like his usual self. it’s more than that, jonas feels, sees that he’s losing isak, the isak he knows, and that isak is also losing himself. and it’s scary when you don’t recognize the best friend you’ve learned to understand and grown to so genuinely care about, the best friend whose well-being means so much to you. and you can hear the fear in jonas’ voice, in the way he curses, you can see it in his eyes as he tries to hold isak’s gaze, tries to read his face, tries to understand what’s going on. jonas is not angry and pushing isak away, he’s worried and trying to hold on to him as best as he can at that moment. because this is not only scary for jonas, it’s confusing as hell, he’s not used to seeing isak like this, i don’t think he’s ever had to deal with isak behaving like this 

and he tells him, in the next episode. that no one’s angry at him, that they’re just worried about him. he tells him that he can come talk to him, because i think that’s what they’ve always done. jonas knows he can’t force isak to open up, knows that isak will usually reach out to him when he’s ready, at his own rhythm. and this is why when isak finally makes the first steps to talk to him, jonas sort of immediately feels some sort of relief. and this is part of the reason why jonas reacts to isak’s coming out the way he does, like it’s no big deal. because it is no big deal to jonas. it’s no big deal to him in general, but especially in that moment, because he sees that his best friend hasn’t slipped away like he feared he might, that his best friend is here and that’s honestly all that could possibly matter to him

Anybody remember when I carried a nuke through a wormhole? Saved New York. Recall that? A hostile alien army came charging through a hole in space. We’re standing 300 feet below it. 
That up there, that’s… that’s the end game. How were you guys planning on beating that?
