Game of Thrones Re-Watch: And Now His Watch Is Ended

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 15 thoughts I had while watching the fourth episode of season three, “And Now His Watch Is Ended.” Spoilers for the entire series, but for this episode in particular.

Ramsay Snow in And Now His Watch Is Ended

  1. It’s so obvious Game of Thrones is written primarily by men and primarily for men. I don’t think there’s been an episode yet where I haven’t rolled my eyes and thought to myself “Was that bit really necessary?” In this case, it’s Locke giving Jaime horse pee to drink.
  2. I would never want to get on Varys’s bad side.
  3. Cersei is so pissed that Margaery can manipulate Joffrey in ways that she can’t. I’ll always be Team Margaery.
  4. I hate how the series shows that Theon regrets his actions and still has a shred of humanity left in him right before it reveals that he’s been led in a full circle back to the room with a cross. Even when people who have done horrible things get tortured or killed on this show, we rarely get to enjoy it.
  5. Jaime saved Brienne last episode, and now she saves him here. They have an odd relationship, but I would 100 percent rather see him with her than Cersei, in spite of all the horrible things he’s done.
  6. Damn. Cersei is clearly Tywin’s favorite child, yet even she gets treated like shit by him. No wonder she is so cold.
  7. Olenna Tyrell is the treasure of Westeros. Seriously, her quips give me life.
  8. These season three scenes between Margaery and Sansa make me so happy. There are not enough female friendships on this show. Hell, there aren’t enough friendships on this show period.
  9. Do you think they cast Burn Gorman as Karl simply because it would shock Torchwood fans to see him playing a villain?
  10. Poor Jeor Mormant.  I think it was wrong of him to stand by while Craster sacrificed his sons to the White Walkers, but he was always good to Jon and didn’t deserve to die like that.
  11. The one good thing to come out of all of this was that Gilly managed to get away with her baby.
  12. Love how they show the return of Beric Dondarrion, as it’s foreshadowing to Jon’s resurrection in season six.
  13. This episode shows us that Daenerys sure knows how the play the long game. No wonder it took her forever to sail to Westeros.
  14. Also, I love that she frees the Unsullied rather than keep them as slaves, yet they all remain loyal to her.
  15. Now “the bitch” has three dragons and an army.
