Game of Thrones Re-Watch: Two Swords

The new season of Game of Thrones starts July 16. As preparation, I’m re-watching the first six seasons of the show. Below are 10 thoughts I had while watching the first episode of season four, “Two Swords.” Spoilers for the entire series, but for this episode in particular.

Shae in Two Swords

  1. Oberyn! I liked him so much. It certainly didn’t hurt that Pedro Pascal was easy on the eyes.
  2. Oberyn, your thirst for revenge will be your downfall.
  3. This episode is when I started to suspect that Daenerys’s dragons may be the destruction, not the salvation, of Westeros. Even she cannot control them.
  4. And here’s how Tywin found out about Tyrion and Shae’s relationship. I bet that handmaiden was only too happy to get back at Shae for holding a knife to her throat.
  5. Cersei is such a selfish bitch. Jaime is the one who lost a hand and was held captive, but all she can think about is the fact that he was away from her.
  6. The Thenns are so disturbing. What kind of person would choose to become a cannibal?
  7. As usual, Maester Aemon is the voice of reason.
  8. “End up with a string of dead sparrows around my neck.” – Oh, this foreshadowing to Margaery’s fate hurt to hear.
  9. The slave masters of Meereen were an awful bunch, crucifying children.
  10. I’m glad Arya got some revenge for Lommy. Plus she took back Needle and got a horse.
