Game of Thrones Season One watch-a-thon: “Cripples, Bastards, and Broken Things”
(previous: “Lord Snow”)
Yessss! The women are really starting to come into their own. Love Daenerys’s well-deserved smackdown to Viserys. (Seriously, what is it with the princes here? Ooo, Viserys is a weasel. And Harry Lloyd is amazing.) Arya already knows she doesn’t want a life as a lord’s wife: she wants to be a lord. Go Arya! (I am dreading the smackdown she is going to get once Ned decides to stop indulging her childish whims. *sigh*)
I am enjoying the CSI: King’s Landing stuff as Ned investigates Jon Arryn’s death. Law and Order: Winterfell is taking a strange turn, however: Tyrion didn’t have anything to do with the attack on laid-up Bran, did he? Or did he?
Love the conversation Ned has with the council (or whatever they are) about the expense of the tournament. Sounds like discussions around the Olympics.
I see Jon Snow has a new faithful dog in fat Sam. This is going to end badly for someone, I suspect…
