Game of Thrones Re-Watch: Kill the Boy

The seventh 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 fifth episode of season five, “Kill the Boy.” Spoilers for the entire series, but for this episode in particular.

Jorah Mormont in Kill the Boy

  1. Daenerys is showing her Targaryen heritage, allowing a man to be burned alive by her dragons.
  2. Jon has a good heart, but is not a very good Lord Commander. He’s only had the job for three episodes and he’s already breaking his oath to keep the wildings out of the Seven Kingdoms.
  3. Myranda is a cruel bitch, but I don’t blame her for being pissed that Ramsay broke his promise to marry her.
  4. Myranda is going to regret pushing Sansa and Theon back together.
  5. Oh, the irony of Ramsay saying “The North remembers.” Yes, Ramsay. They remember what your father’s traitorous ass did to their king.
  6. Roose knows how to wipe the smirk off of Ramsay’s face, doesn’t he?
  7. Gilly may think she doesn’t know things, but she actually knows lots of things I don’t know. For example, I’m hopeless at sewing and lighting fires.
  8. Grey Worm and Missandei really are cute together. Not as cute as Sam and Gilly, but close.
  9. I know people rarely marry for love on this show, but I hate seeing Daenerys choose to marry purely for political reasons. Just becaused it worked out the first time doesn’t mean it will the second.
  10. Poor Jorah! I hope that, like Shireen before him, he’ll be cured of his greyscale.
