Game of Thrones Re-Watch: Blood of My Blood

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 15 thoughts I had while watching the sixth episode of season six, “Blood of My Blood.” Spoilers for the entire series, but for this episode in particular.

Daenerys Targaryen in Blood of My Blood

  1. Horn Hill is so lovely. If I had to live in Westeros, I’d like to live in the Reach.
  2. Melessa is such a nice person. Clearly Sam takes after his mother.
  3. Margaery is such a good actress. The first time I watched this scene between her and Tommen, I honestly thought the High Sparrow had been successful in brainwashing her.
  4. Randyll is as awful as his wife is wonderful. Sam has accomplished so much more than Randyll probably ever has and it’s not Gilly’s fault she was born north of the Wall.
  5. I love Sam taking Heartsbane on the way out of Horn Hill. It’s the perfect eff you to Randyll and Sam has far more use for it than his father does, anyway.
  6. Listening to Arya talk about how Cersei would be filled with anger and a desire for vengeance really makes me feel for her because that is how she herself feels.
  7. I’m glad Arya didn’t kill Lady Crane. After all, her whole reason for joining the Faceless Men was so that she could punish those who hurt the innocent. It wouldn’t be right for her to take a life that wasn’t on her list.
  8. Jaime has many flaws, but I’m glad he stood up for Margaery. It is rare to see him do that for anyone who isn’t Cersei.
  9. “What’s happening?” – I ask myself that at least once every single episode, Mace.
  10. I feel bad for Jaime. For once he does something selfless and his reward is being stripped of his position in the Kingsguard.
  11. Walder is such a devious son of a bitch. I’m sitting here counting the episodes until he gets what he deserves.
  12. “It will be a trial by combat. I have The Mountain.” – We know by now that nothing is ever that simple on this show.
  13. I’m glad Benjen turned out to not be dead. And not just because he saved Bran and Meera’s lives. He was always so nice to Jon. Plus, I’ll take any Starks I can get at this point.
  14. So they gave Daenerys another beautiful white horse. I hope this one doesn’t suffer the same fate as the last one.
  15. I forgot how freaking huge Drogon was at this point! I shudder to think of what his diet consists of.
