Game of Thrones Re-Watch: The Lion and the Rose

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 10 thoughts I had while watching the second episode of season four, “The Lion and the Rose.” Spoilers for the entire series, but for this episode in particular.

Margaery Tyrell in The Lion and the Rose

  1. I think Myranda is even worse than Ramsay, if that’s possible. It takes a special kind of bitch to do that to another woman.
  2. How I wish Theon had slit Ramsay’s throat when he had the chance. It probably would have cost Theon his life, but it probably would have saved Rickon’s life.
  3. Joffrey is such a brat, destroying a rare book. I would have loved your present, Tyrion.
  4. Melisandre and Stannis are clearly getting desperate at this point. Why else would they resort to human sacrifice?
  5. Shireen is not having any of Melisandre’s bullshit. I think Melisandre burned the poor girl to death just for not buying into her faith.
  6. Margaery’s wedding dress is so beautiful. And her hair looks amazing.
  7. Grand Maester Pycelle is such an old horndog, cornering some young woman and hitting on her.
  8. Cersei is terrible, choosing to feed the dogs over the poor people of King’s Landing simply as a means of undermining Margaery.
  9. I think the Lannisters managed to insult nearly every person at the wedding.
  10. Joffrey, you will not be missed.
