Game of Thrones recap: She had it coming

I warned you last week, didn’t I?

With only four episodes left, we expect only the best from Game of Thrones, right? Sure enough, the seventh episode of the show’s fourth season did not disappoint. (more…)

Game of Thrones recap: Littlefinger is the real enemy

Following the creepy White Walker reveal in the last episode, Game of Thrones returns this week with a coronation, confrontations and several killings. Because a Game of Thrones episode without a murder scene is considered a dull affair (See what I did there?).

Tommen Baratheon’s coronation opened the episode. Throughout the celebration, our boy king could not keep his eyes away from Margaery Tyrell who stands proximate to His Grace as he welcomes his well-wishers.  Tommen and Margaery’s flirtatious glances caught the attention of Queen Regent Cersei Lannister who immediately went out to confront the recently-widowed.

Game of Thrones recap: The White Walkers return

After last week’s controversy, Game of Thrones returned this week with a more toned-down episode that is bereft of any apology or remorse for how badly it treated one of its characters.

But for the sake of recapping the show (and for that purpose alone), let us bury the hatchet for just a second and talk about what happened this week in the cruel realm we love to hate.

Game of Thrones recap: A (purplish) wedding and a funeral

Those who have read the A Song of Ice and Fire (ASOIAF) books know that King Joffrey Baratheon and Margaery Tyrell’s nuptial, or the Purple Wedding as it is fondly called by fans, will be one of this season’s highlights. Honestly, I was expecting to see it during the fourth or fifth episode because after the said wedding, the showrunners are left with only few materials to work with for this season. Remember that this season of Game of Thrones is based just on the second half of ASOIAF’s third book and not on its fourth (the fourth and fifth books, I believe, will be told in seasons five and six).

The Purple Wedding being shown in the second episode is tantamount to HBO declaring that there are a lot more to expect this year. So to my fellow fans, we better be prepared for what’s in store for us in the remaining eight episodes.

Game of Thrones recap: Arya gets her revenge in the season 4 premiere

The much-hyped fourth season of Game of Thrones is finally here. With legions of fans all over the world, it’s easily the most popular television show at present. But how did the season 4 premiere fare?

Well it didn’t disappoint.

The episode opened with a two-minute recap of what has happened in the show so far. Well the recap is more like an obituary featuring the show’s most brutal scenes including Ned Starks’ beheading at Balor, the Red Wedding (duh?!) and that time when Jamie’s right hand was cut off.
