Game of Thrones Re-Watch: The Old Gods and the New

The seventh 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 sixth episode of season two, “The Old Gods and the New.” Spoilers for the entire series, but for this episode in particular.

Tywin Lannister in The Old Gods and the New

  1. This opening bit with Ser Rodrik’s execution is awful. At least Ned got a clean beheading.
  2. I remember the first time I saw this episode. I was so nervous Littlefinger was going to reveal Arya’s true identity.
  3. I always found it interesting how Ygritte looked like one of Jon’s sisters and reminded him of the other. It’s possibly what saved her life (or at least delayed her death).
  4. They may have started a riot that led to the High Septon being torn apart, but I still want to give a medal to whoever hit Joffrey in the face with cow crap.
  5. You should listen to your mother Robb. Getting involved with Talisa will be your downfall.
  6. Even when he knows Ygritte is manipulating him, Jon is still doing what she wants.
  7. Roose Bolton is such a liar. I just want to shake Robb for trusting him.
  8. Sansa should takes Shae’s advice not to trust anybody. King’s Landing is basically a viper pit.
  9. Osha really came through for the Starks in this episode. A far cry from the woman who tried to kill Bran when she was first introduced.
  10. And once again Daenerys suffers a huge loss.
