Game of Thrones Re-Watch: The Gift

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

Myrcella Baratheon in The Gift

  1. I will miss Maester Aemon so much, but I’m glad he got a peaceful death. That’s so rare on this show.
  2. That poor old woman. All she wanted to do was help Sansa.
  3. Melisandre is a special kind of poison, wanting to sacrifice a sweet little girl.
  4. I guess it’s a good thing for the former masters that Daario isn’t the king of Meereen.
  5. Tommen is so easily manipulated. What boy of 15 listens to his mother that much?
  6. Looking back now, the use of the Long Farewell on Bronn is clearly foreshadowing to Myrcella’s death. Dornish women play dirty.
  7. One minute Littlefinger is asking Cersei to make him Warden of the North, and the next he’s selling her out to Olenna. He such a self-serving douche.
  8. Of course Daenerys just happens to be at the same fighting pit Jorah and Tyrion were taken to. Sometimes I have to laugh at the writing on this show. I mean, look at how many times we nearly got a Stark family reunion. How long before this sort of thing stops being a coincidence and start being part of a pattern?
  9. Cersei is such a smug bitch, going to gloat over the woman she had imprisoned.
  10. Cersei deserves being locked up. Its her fault the Sparrows are ruining Loras and Margaery’s lives.
