Game of Thrones Re-Watch: The Bear and the Maiden Fair

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 10 thoughts I had while watching the seventh episode of season three, “The Bear and the Maiden Fair.” Spoilers for the entire series, but for this episode in particular.

Margaery Tyrell and Sansa Stark in The Bear and the Maiden Fair

  1. Ygritte making fun of the way the people of Westeros fight is hilarious. I do miss the humor she brings to the show.
  2. I feel so sad for Robb and Talisa. Here they are, happy at the thought that they’re going to be parents, and of course that’s never going to happen.
  3. I love Margaery trying to console Sansa. She really was such a wonderful person.
  4. Joffrey may be the king, but Tywin is the puppet master.
  5. How long do you think it took Missandei to memorize all of Daenerys’s titles? It’s been six seasons and I still don’t have all of them down.
  6. Tyrion presenting Shae with chains sends a bit of a chill through me, considering what happens to her.
  7. Oh, it’s Myranda. She was as sick in the head as Ramsay.
  8. I know nothing should have surprised me after watching Jaime lose his hand, but I was still shocked when Ramsay castrated Theon.
  9. Ygritte, you’re never going to be able to turn Jon into a wilding. All the things you like about him are reasons why he won’t betray the Night’s Watch.
  10. Going back for Brienne is one of the few good things Jaime ever did on this show. I still haven’t made up my mind as to whether I like him or hate him.
