Game of Thrones Re-Watch: Breaker of Chains

The next 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 third episode of season four, “Breaker of Chains.” Spoilers for the entire series, but for this episode in particular.

Daenerys Targaryen in Breaker of Chains

  1. The first time I watched this I was so worried that Sansa wouldn’t get away from King’s Landing and would be taken prisoner by Tywin and Cersei.
  2. And just when it looks like Sansa is finally safe, she ends up in Littlefinger’s clutches. Man, I really hope he dies before the show ends.
  3. Tywin really is a peach, insulting his dead grandson in front of the boy’s mother.
  4. Just when I think that Jaime is actually becoming a decent guy, he goes and rapes Cersei. And yes, it was rape. I don’t care if it was consensual in the books, what they showed on screen was definitely assault.
  5. I’m glad we get a cute scene with Sam and Gilly in this episode. There haven’t been a lot of pleasant moments on this show lately.
  6. The Dornish do have rather healthy sex drives, don’t they? Not that I’m complaining; Pedro Pascal and Indira Varma are rather pleasant to look at.
  7. Pod really is the most loyal squire that ever lived.
  8. I guess Olly was too skinny for the Thenns’ taste.
  9. Meereen has some beautiful architecture. Too bad it was built on the backs of slaves.
  10. I love Daenerys having the broken chains catapulted over the walls of Meereen. It shows the masters who is in charge and inspires the slaves to rebel.
