The next 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 six, “Home.” Spoilers for the entire series, but for this episode in particular.
- As interesting as Bran’s storyline can be at times, I did not miss him last season.
- Ah, Lyanna Stark. I always think of her as the Westeros version of Helen of Troy.
- Those stones with the drawn-on eyes they put on the bodies never stop being creepy. Probably because I’m used to seeing dead bodies with closed eyes, which makes it easier to pretend they’re sleeping.
- Tyrion is such much braver than me. I’d have been out of that tomb at the first dragon roar.
- Arya has gotten smarter. She knows not to listen to what Jaqen says now.
- As soon as Roose announced his wife was having another child, I knew it would be a boy and I knew either Roose would kill Ramsay or Ramsay would kill Roose. No great loss here.
- Now Walda and that baby, on the other hand, did not deserve to die. Even if Walda was dumb for handing her baby to Ramsay.
- Between Balon turning his back on Theon and Euron murdering Balon, the one thing I’ve learned about the Ironborn is that they sure do treat their family members well.
- Melisandre better hope she can bring Jon back from the dead. Otherwise she’s out of plot and Davos might as well kill her.
- Did anybody really expect Jon to stay dead?
One thought on “Game of Thrones Re-Watch: Home”
I keep reading these and pledging to rewatch before the new series starts but I still haven’t! I never expected Jon to stay dead but it still broke my heart when he died either way. I love the comparison to Helen of Troy – I totally see that!
