Game of Thrones Re-Watch: Garden of Bones

The seventh season of Game of Thrones starts July 16.  In preparation, I’m re-watching the first six seasons of the show. Below are 10 thoughts I had while watching the fourth episode of season two, “Garden of Bones.” Spoilers for the entire series, but for this episode in particular.

Talisa Maegyr in Garden of Bones

  1. I find it interesting that Roose Bolton and Talisa are introduced in the same scene, since he plays a direct role in her murder.
  2. Also, the sound of Talisa amputating the Lannister soldier’s foot is so sickening. I suppose I should just be grateful they didn’t decide to show it.
  3. Joffrey is such a sadistic creep. Olenna Redwyne really did the people of Westeros all a favor.
  4. No wonder Littlefinger didn’t want Harrenhal. It certainly isn’t much to look at.
  5. I wonder if Arya will ever get around to finishing off everyone on her list. Joffrey has already been taken care of, of course.
  6. Cat is such a mom. Some things are universal.
  7. “The night is dark and full of terrors.” – I know that’s something Melisandre always says, but when she says it to Renly it’s basically a warning of what is to come for him.
  8. I think saving Arya’s life is probably the only thing Tywin ever did on this show that I liked, aside from appointing Tyrion Hand of the King.
  9. Stannis correcting Davos’s grammar makes me smile. There’s one of those in every family.
  10. Melisandre giving birth is so disturbing. No wonder Davos never warmed to her.
