Game of Thrones Re-Watch: The Night Lands

The new season of Game of Thrones starts July 16.  As a lead-up, I’m re-watching the first six seasons of the show. Below are 10 thoughts I had while watching the second episode of season two, “The Night Lands.” Spoilers for the entire series, but for this episode in particular.

Yara and Balon Greyjoy in The Night Lands

  1. Varys really does know everything that happens in King’s Landing, doesn’t he?
  2. And here’s Sam meeting Gilly for the first time. I really hope those two get a happy ending.
  3. Poor Rakharo. He deserved so much better than that.
  4. Was the bit with Littlefinger wiping cum off the mouth of one of his whores really necessary?
  5. Pod really was a hot mess when he was first introduced.
  6. Tyrion sending Janos Slynt off to the Wall for carrying out the murders of Robert’s bastards is just great. And it resulted in him being executed by a bastard.
  7. I love that Gendry is smart enough to see that Arya is a girl. Especially because she was so often mistaken for a boy in the first season.
  8. Re-watching this scene with Theon hitting on Yara is so disturbing, now that I know she’s his sister.
  9. Salladhor Saan is quite the charmer, isn’t he? I think Cersei is awful, but even she doesn’t deserve to be raped.
  10. As if interbreeding with his daughters wasn’t awful enough, we learn Craster is also offering up his sons as sacrifices to the White Walkers.
