Game of Thrones Re-Watch: Mockingbird

The new 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 seventh episode of season four, “Mockingbird.” Spoilers for the entire series, but for this episode in particular.

Petyr Baelish in Mockingbird

  1. I don’t blame Tyrion for not taking the deal. He wouldn’t have survived two months at the Wall.
  2. Enter The Mountain 3.0. I know I can’t be the only one who finds he gets scarier with every upgrade.
  3. Selyse really has drunk the kool-aid. Melisandre just revealed she’s a fraud, yet Selyse still trusts her.
  4. Also, it’s clear in this scene that Melisandre was already planning to sacrifice Shireen in the North. As if I didn’t hate her enough already.
  5. I forgot Hot Pie appeared in this episode! Sort of convenient that he pops up just long enough to tell Brienne and Pod what Arya’s been up to.
  6. Tyrion taught his squire well. If it wasn’t for Pod, Brienne wouldn’t have figured out that Arya was on her way to the Eyrie.
  7. Oberyn’s story reaffirms my belief that Cersei, not Tyrion, is the real monster of the Lannister siblings.
  8. Don’t apologize, Sansa. I’ve been wanting to slap that little brat since his first episode.
  9. Littlefinger is such a creep, kissing Sansa. She’s 16, for crying out loud!
  10. How long do you think it took Lysa to hit the ground?
