Game of Thrones Re-Watch: Home

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.

Meera Reed in Home

  1. As interesting as Bran’s storyline can be at times, I did not miss him last season.
  2. Ah, Lyanna Stark. I always think of her as the Westeros version of Helen of Troy.
  3. 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.
  4. Tyrion is such much braver than me. I’d have been out of that tomb at the first dragon roar.
  5. Arya has gotten smarter. She knows not to listen to what Jaqen says now.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Melisandre better hope she can bring Jon back from the dead. Otherwise she’s out of plot and Davos might as well kill her.
  10. Did anybody really expect Jon to stay dead?


One thought on “Game of Thrones Re-Watch: Home

  1. 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!
