Sibling rivalry goes in some dark directions, the worst laid plans in Game of Thrones history goes about as well as the best laid plans on Game of Thrones, and once again the happy shouts of a million fan theorists echo across the land. So much to talk about after the break. Yes, there are spoilers.
The Lannisters and Targaryens deal with the aftermath of Daenerys’ surprise attack, we get a number of wacky plans so crazy they just might work, and I discover how hard it is to watch Game of Thrones while you’re on vacation and your internet connection sucks. Find out if I made it through the episode without throwing the television out a window, right after the break. Spoilers ahead.
Wow. Just… wow. Over these last seven point four three seasons, Game of Thrones has left me in many states: Sad, exultant, angry, completely bereft of hope that the concept of “good” was anything but an illusion manufactured by our ape brains to cope with the sheer cruelty and meaningless of life…
…but never have I ever left an episode feeling so completely shaken, and unsure about where exactly my loyalties lie. Please meet me on the analysts couch after the break (spoilers abound).
