Game of Thrones Re-Watch: Fire and Blood

The seventh season of Game of Thrones starts July 16.  As preparation, I’m re-watching the first six seasons of the show. Below are 15 thoughts I had while watching the tenth episode of season one, “Fire and Blood.” Spoilers for the entire series, but for this episode in particular.

Daenerys Targaryen and Viserion in Fire and Blood

  1. Hearing Yoren tell Arya they’re going North reminds me how hopeful we all were that she’d been reunited with Jon. We’re still waiting, HBO.
  2. I always loved how each direwolf was a reflection of their owner’s personality, with Shaggydog being the least disciplined.
  3. Richard Madden’s acting in the scene where Robb learns of Ned’s death is really wonderful. My heart breaks for his character.
  4. Joffrey’s as crazy and violent as the Mad King was. This show is basically a cautionary tale about the dangers of inbreeding.
  5. The scene with the heads on pikes always disturbs me so much.
  6. Sansa actually would have been doing Joffrey a favor if she’d pushed him off the bridge, considering the nasty end he came to.
  7. Greatjon was so loyal to the Starks. Pity he raised a monster.
  8. “It’s going to be a long war” – No kidding. I’ll be retired by the time the last book gets published.
  9. It’s so creepy, how Cersei goes from sleeping with her brother to sleeping with her cousin.
  10. Poor Daenerys. She lost her baby, her khalasar, and her husband all in one day.
  11. The Grand Maester really is a class act.
  12. Although I do find it hilarious that his hunch is all a show.
  13. I love Jeor  Mormont’s speech that it really doesn’t matter who sits on the Iron Throne when the dead walk.
  14. Blue really is Daenerys’s color, isn’t it?
  15. The baby dragons are so cute.
