Sansa went from watching Loras Tyrell jousting to Robin Arryn with a stick and you can imagine how exciting that must be.

Finally got the time to finish this one! Memorable chapter, too. The story so far… With a Bolton escort to get him from Harrenhal to King’s Landing and his wrist healing clean, the end of a harrowing journey is in sight for Jaime. Brienne will not be joining him.

Sorry for the wait. I really do like this chapter, though. Lots going on, and Cersei’s such a good PoV in general. The story so far… Tywin Lannister is dead but not yet buried. This is both literal and metaphorical. This looks like exactly the sort of situation that needs Cersei’s touch.

Important plot chapter, this one, hidden in a not-so-widely-liked PoV. The story so far… The inheritance chaos following Balon Greyjoy’s death is due to be resolved at the Kingsmoot, as two of Balon’s brothers and Balon’s daughter (plus some other randoms) engage in a knock-down drag-out stump speech battle for the Driftwood Crown and the […]

Just in time for the next season, here are my notes for 6.10! I can’t believe I actually did this project. I’ll have the numbers for the season and the series thus far up before season seven premiers, along with my favourite and least favourite seasons (and episodes therein). 6.10 – The Winds of Winter

I can’t believe I forgot to actually post this last night. Anyway, it’s a short set of notes, since this episode isn’t so much offensive as it is bland and repetitive, with the weird Horn Hill Sitcom Interlude. Also one of the episodes where the writers were struggling to pass the fifty minute mark. 6.06 […]

Moving right along, this is where most of the plots for season six actually start… …so to speak. 6.02 – Home

Sorry for the delay, everyone (and thank you nice people who sent me get-wells)! Here’s the recap you were promised. It is, as you might say… 5.07 – The Gift

Well, this is it, I guess. One of the most infamous episodes of the whole series. Rightly so. EXTRA WARNING: this recap contains discussion of a rape scene, as well as more discussion of the relationship between Tommen and Margaery. 5.06 – Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken

Hi, everyone! Just letting you know my holiday plans for recaps before I dive into this one. I’ll post the 5.03 recap between Christmas and New Year, the 5.04 recap a week after that, and then weekend posting will resume mid-January. Sorry to space them out like that, but December parties do go on. 5.02 […]

Here it is. The season that provoked/inspired me to start this project in the first place. This is a standing warning: any posts on season five may refer to either Sansa’s rape, or Tommen’s, or both. 5.01 – The Wars to Come

[Originally posted on tumblr September 2016. Season seven had not aired at that point.] Bonus post to go with the numbers. It’s time to review this review. In my defense, thirty hours is a lot of TV show. I know I could use some reflection. So now that we’re at the end of season three, […]

Long set of notes this week, because I started talking about that one Catelyn monologue. Seriously, my thoughts on that monologue are a quarter of this week’s recap. Episode 3.02 – Dark Wings, Dark Words

I am not sure how this is going to work. I mean, I like this episode, so if you’re here for me getting cross, this week you are not in the right place. There’s still plenty to talk about with respect to long-term decisions though, and what works here that is not present in other episodes. […]

Last one for the year, everyone, though I’ll be back next week with some whole-season number-crunching and the murder leaderboards. We’ll start season two in 2016. Enjoy your holidays! Episode 10 – Fire and Blood

Another week, another episode’s worth of notes. Episode 3 – Lord Snow
