Game of Thrones Re-Watch: Lord Snow

Season seven of Game of Thrones starts July 16.  In preparation, I’m re-watching the first six seasons of the show. Below are 20 thoughts I had while watching the third episode of season one, “Lord Snow.” Spoilers for the complete series, but for this episode in particular.

Daenerys Targaryen in Lord Snow

  1. Boy, that guy who greets Ned in King’s Landing sure is a douche, suggesting the new Hand should change his clothes.
  2. This scene between Ned and Jaime is truly wonderful, with each convinced their point-of-view is the only right one. Honestly, I can see both sides.
  3. Varys! And Renly! I was pretty upset when Renly died, even if he had no right to the throne.
  4. Too bad Joffrey didn’t die of infection. It would’ve saved Ned’s life.
  5. “Everyone who isn’t us is an enemy” – I think everyone on the show is living by these words as of the end of season six.
  6. I love watching Ned trying to comfort his daughters. Even if he is a bit hopeless at it (at least with Sansa).
  7. Forget Varys or Tyrion; Old Nan was probably the wisest person on this show.
  8. And here’s Littlefinger telling his first on-screen lie (that the dagger is Tyrion’s). He’s such a sleazebag. I’ll be so happy when he gets what’s coming to him.
  9. Tyrion really does have a great sense of humor, even if it is a bit morbid.
  10. Seeing Ned and Cat kiss each other goodbye is much sadder knowing it will be their last goodbye.
  11. Robert really was a peach. No wonder Lancel was willing to go along with Cersei’s plot to have him killed.
  12. Daenerys begins to act like a Khaleesi.
  13. Viserys was such an abusive asshole. I do not miss him one bit.
  14. I get so cold whenever I have to watch a scene at the Wall.
  15. And we get our first mention of Dorne via a joke from Tyrion. It still pains me to think about how that storyline got changed from the books.
  16. Thank goodness for Ser Jorah. I don’t think I could stand the thought of Daenerys chowing down on a dog. Especially after what happened to Lady in the last episode.
  17. Did Emilia realize when she took this role that she would have to take her clothes off every single episode?
  18. Tyrion is such a class act, pissing off the Wall.
  19. Syrio Forel was such a great character.
  20. Although it did annoy me that he called Arya “Boy.”
