Game of Thrones Re-Watch: Mhysa

The next 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 tenth episode of season three, “Mhysa.” Spoilers for the entire series, but for this episode in particular.

Daenerys Targaryen in Mhysa

  1. Seeing Robb’s body with Grey Wind’s head on it breaks my heart. As if it wasn’t bad enough that they were both killed.
  2. Sansa is so innocent. I hate that her world is about to shattered again.
  3. I can’t help but laugh at Tywin sending Joffrey off to bed like he’s a misbehaving toddler.
  4. The inclusion of the story of the Rat Cook is a good way to explain the severity of Walder Frey’s crime. It also foreshadows how Arya gets revenge on him.
  5. I know what Theon did was horrible, but I can’t help but feel sorry for him. Ramsay has taken his freedom, his penis, and now his name.
  6. Ramsay really is a class act, sending Theon’s penis to Pyke.
  7. Balon is as loving a father as Tywin. The two could get together and talk about what disappointments their children are.
  8. I love Yara standing up to Balon in defense of Theon. She might pick on her brother, but she really does love him.
  9. Shae really should’ve taken the diamonds Varys gave her and sailed far away from King’s Landing.
  10. Arya gets a small bit of justice for Grey Wind and Robb here. That makes me feel a bit better.
  11. Maester Aemon had a good heart. Not everyone would have taken Gilly and her baby in.
  12. Here’s where Gendry gets put on a boat. I wonder if we’ll ever see him again.
  13. There have been so many reunions I’ve hoped for throughout the six seasons of this show. Jaime and Cersei’s is not one of them.
  14. I’m so glad Davos wasn’t executed. I don’t think I could handle the death of another good character after the last episode.
  15. Thank goodness this season ended on a somewhat hopeful note, with Daenerys being embraced by the people she has helped liberate.
