The High Sparrow corners her for another one of his trademark chats on the Bench of Truth to confront Queen Marg about avoiding her marital bed. Abdominal wounds bleed heavily and it can take a person a long time to die from. I do have some questions that others have, but yes, lets see how she develops; she is new at this, is feeling her way, while at the same time is afraid to trust anyone. Despite his devotion to the Many-Faced God, Jaqen has a real soft spot for Arya. The Hound will sort them out—then hopefully, do something good with his skills, like kill his brother and some White Walkers Sam? Three hundred years ago, he unified the Seven Kingdoms and forged the Iron Throne. Your guess is as good if not better than mine. And some might say that in the Game of Game of Thrones, as in life, the Universe is the most powerful draft pick of all.
It would explain why she was stumbling around, truly shocked at being stabbed and at bleeding. And in the real world, these sorts of things cause people to do irrational things. She is not leaving him. Jaime, in full preening Lannishole mode, wins the coveted Joffrey Baratheon Memorial Slap Award +25 for showing a Frey what's what, then proceeds to give the Frey siege a makeover, starting with a parley with the Blackfish. It was a build-up episode, and I am good with that. Every scenario seems unconvincing and unrealistic. How is she running and jumping after taking multiple stabs to the gut? Would be brill to see Sansa rally the rest by herself.
This is where Tyrion will probably play a key art. I can see why some might see it as superfluous but I really think it was a very strong scene! I have thought about the possibility that someone requesting The Gift at the House of Black and White was asked to stand in for Arya. Note on these recaps: I have not read the books, and I have no immediate intention to do so. He will get vengeance for Brother Ray and save others from that fate. But I also don't get the Brothers' motivation.
Tyrion has been away from power for so long that we forget how masterful he is at wielding it and especially advising those with more of it. Why was the return of The Hound who, like Benjen last week, is feeling much better now the first Big Plot Shocker deserving of one? And what does it mean to rally these houses around a family name that was never really yours? Too much else was going on, clearly. Things are certainly one big struggle up in the North. And why would they have a secondary character testing a tertiary character? Was that the real Arya? The lack of sentimentality that for making the show truly unpredictable might now be the most unpleasantly predictable thing about it. Oh, one more thing: Go Yara! The internet is a very different story. That one seems to be the most likely to me since there is the most evidence for it in the preview. However, Sansa does not know this: she knows nothing of what he told Cersei or the Vale Lords.
Jaime will never shake Cersei. I am not sure a 10 year old would act like that. Then, last year, she agreed to marry Ramsay Bolton. If I can stomach a Hall of Fame drama , I can handle a little light disemboweling. Blood loss and shock would quickly do her in, though. The one thing that bugged me was the use of Americanisms in the script.
They have developed Sansa as an abuse victim this year: and that makes perfect sense. I might be breaking up with him and voting for Tormund instead. If this new confrontation with Brienne can´t rekindle that feeling in him that he can do better than he is doing at the moment, nothing will most likely. Their own mistakes let them to this state of their House, Boltons only capitalize on that. And anyway even if honor compelled her, what would it achieve? She had nothing except Needle, unless she sold Needle, but that seems out of the question.
Maybe I should practice what I preach, then, and look at what worked with optimism. Game Of Thrones season seven packed a great deal into its. What was she doing walking around streets of Bravos completely relaxed and unaware? I expected growth from her, and I see none. Davos Seaworth dad is the only one who can melt her icy Mormont heart and convince her that the dead are coming +10. I love this show but multiple reviewers have rightly pointed out that it has made zero impact at this point. And if they filmed it which I doubt and cut it, why? Its fishy to begin with, and we may see the result of all this after what has happened to Arya in this episode. The one thing that bugged me was the use of Americanisms in the script.
As honorable as it is for Robb to have married for love on the show , it was the nail in the coffin. I thought it went by a bit quick. Will Jon — and viewers — finally uncover the truth? Olenna writing some letter when Cersei approched her reminded me of season 5 when Cersei was pretending to write something serious to keep Olenna waiting. In this episode, Sansa begs Jon to go meet with Lord Cerwyn, but he refuses. Only the truest and purest love can ignite the sort of fire capable of burning everyone and everything it touches.
