Game of Thrones Re-Watch: Kissed by Fire

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 fifth episode of season three, “Kissed by Fire.” Spoilers for the entire series, but for this episode in particular.

Grey Worm in Kissed by Fire

  1. The Lord of Light is probably the last god The Hound would ever worship, powers of resurrection or not.
  2. If Jon had known that was what it took to shut Ygritte up, he might have broken his vows sooner.
  3. Also, those hotsprings look so inviting. This show films in some of the most amazing places.
  4. And we get our mandatory gross-out scene via Jaime’s infected arm.
  5. Tyrion is clever, but Olenna is more clever.
  6. Those boys did not deserve to pay for Jaime’s actions just because they were related to him. And how pathetic that it took five armed grown men to kill two unarmed squire boys.
  7. Karstark was awful and deserved to pay for what he did. Still, Robb should have listened to his mother, uncle, and wife and kept Karstark as prisoner. Every mistake he’s ever made has been a result of not listening to Cat.
  8. Selyse makes Lysa look like a sane, well-balanced individual. I’ll never forgive her for what she allowed to happen to Shireen, but I do feel sorry for her.
  9. So, according to Jaime’s story, Cersei learned to play dirty from Tywin.
  10. Shireen really was too precious for words. Now that I know what happens to her, I can’t help but tear up a bit during the scene where she visits Davos and offers to teach him to read.
  11. Robert may have been a great warrior, but I don’t think he was a particularly good man. Of course, I don’t see Ser Barristan talking ill of the dead, so he’s probably unlikely to say as much.
  12. I love Grey Worm’s reasoning for keeping that as his name. Also, you can tell Daenerys is moved by Grey Worm’s speech. And it takes a lot to make Daenerys show emotion.
  13. I can’t help but be amused that Barristan and Jorah are basically getting into a pissing match. I guess men are men, no matter where they are.
  14. Poor Sansa. First the Lannisters betrothed her Joffrey, now they’re marrying her to Tyrion.
  15. Although I feel a bit of satisfaction knowing that Cersei’s plan has backfired. If that bitch had kept her mouth shut, then Tywin wouldn’t be forcing her to marry Loras.
