tv: game of thrones [3]

Being able to live in your favourite fictional world sounds great in theory, but in reality we’d probably be that character who dies within the first few minutes of being there. Like, these places are hella dangerous.

Tywin Lannister: Your sister has learned that your new friends the Tyrells are plotting to marry Sansa Stark to Ser Loras.
Tyrion Lannister: Very well. She’s a lovely girl. Missing some of Loras’ favorite bits, but I’m sure they’ll make do.

Game of Thrones, season 7 episode 3, The Queen's Justice - talking points
Warning:

This is hands-down the best - and snarkiest - GoT recap I’ve read this season from a non-shipper.  He loves Olenna Tyrell, appreciates the unhinged genius of Cersei’s revenge for her daughter, and doesn’t fall at Daenerys Targaryen’s feet within seconds of meeting her.  Instead, he comes up with gems like these:

- “Welcome back Ser Jorah – how we have missed your sturdy jaw line and stranded-in-the-friendzone pout.”

-“Jaime and Euron plainly loath each other – but their mix of cackling insanity and battleground savvy was more than a match for Daenerys, Mother of Half-cocked Plans.”

And my favorite:

- “As [Daenerys and Jon] jibbered and jabbered it felt that Game of Thrones could plausibly be re-titled ‘Game of People Standing Around And Talking’. There was no spark, not sense of looming conflict – just the usual ‘burn ‘em all’ grandstanding from Daenerys and extra helpings of Jon Snow’s traditional frowning.”

Seriously, READ THIS.  You will not regret it.

Game of Thrones, season 7 episode 3, The Queen's Justice recap
Warning:

“ As for the Mother of Dragons – can we be honest and point out that her greatly anticipated tête-à-tête with Jon Snow was a mite undercooked? As they jibbered and jabbered it felt that Game of Thrones could plausibly be re-titled “Game of People Standing Around And Talking”. There was no spark, not sense of looming conflict – just the usual “burn ‘em all” grandstanding from Daenerys and extra helpings of Jon Snow’s traditional frowning. “

Yet another reviewer who is underwhelmed by the Jon/Dany scenes from last night. Sorry Joneryes fans, you can think it’s just the Jonsa folks who don’t see much between them, but you’ve got some media folks who are feeling the same.
