Game of Thrones Re-Watch: Dark Wings, Dark Words

The new season of Game of Thrones starts July 16.  In preparation, I’m re-watching the first six seasons of the show. Below are 15 thoughts I had while watching the second episode of season three, “Dark Wings, Dark Words.” Spoilers for the entire series, but for this episode in particular.

Olenna Tyrell in Dark Wings, Dark Words

  1. This dream scene with the Stark boys together and Ned’s voice is giving me all the feels. Just when I was starting to accept that they were never going to see each other again.
  2. The first two seasons Daenerys got put through the ringer. Now it’s the Starks, turn apparently.
  3. Listen to Shae, Sansa. She knows Littlefinger is no good for you.
  4. Also, poor girl has absolutely no gaydar. If she did, she wouldn’t be so interested in Loras.
  5. I love Olenna’s sharp tongue and wit. I’d watch an entire series centering on a young Olenna.
  6. “I think you lost this war the day you married her.” – The only smart thing Lord Karstark ever said.
  7. Cat’s story about sitting with Jon always makes me tear up a little. Especially because she’ll never know that he really wasn’t Ned’s son.
  8. I wonder how Mance managed to keep the Thenns from eating the rest of his army.
  9. Love how the Lord Commander promises to kill Rast if Sam doesn’t make it back to the Wall alive. It’s the perfect way to keep Rast from picking on Sam.
  10. Enter Jojen and Meera. I was never a big fan of Bran’s storyline, but I did like these two.
  11. It’s cute that Shae is jealous of the fact that Tyrion slept with Ros. Which is why it broke my heart all the more when Shae betrayed him.
  12. Add being homophobic to the list of Joffrey’s many wonderful qualities.
  13. Margaery shows her cleverness once again by pretending to take have an interest in Joffrey’s crossbow.
  14. What Theon did to the people of Winterfell was awful, but watching him be tortured is horrifying.
  15. This show has so many twists. I was worried Jaime was going to kill Brienne or Brienne was going to kill Jaime, but instead men from House Bolton come along and take them both prisoner.
