We’ve made it to Friday! EEK! WHOOP! This was also the week that Game of Thrones returned to our screens. Yes, fans wept and countries across the globe gave up productivity for entertainment.
The first episode was a great first episode. It is entertaining but not overwhelming, slowly easing you back into Westeros.
That.Theme.Song. I just want to do great things while listening to it!
The glimpse we get of young Cersei is spot on. Everything is there: the snooty cloak of royalty she dons like she was born with it, her demanding personality and that quiet desperation because even as a young girl she knew that her fate would always not be in her hands.
Intriguing… new crazy religion introduced in episode one. Like we don’t have enough of it with Melisandre being cray-cray.
Speaking of old Melly, and her ratchet king Stannis Baratheon, them at the wall exerting their power promises some interesting moments. Jon Snow is there, and as everyone knows, Jon Snow never let’s common sense come in the way of making his intentions and beliefs known.
Daenerys Targaryen is still insanely beautiful, obstinate and bad ass. I love that she always has a smart ass comment ready for some fool who would think she is not a Queen.
Daario Naharis. Holy smoky. If GRRM does not pop him I will be happy. I also like that he has become part of Daeny’s council, not just her bedmate. Although she is quite blessed to have him there 😀
No Arya Stark in this episode. I’m not totally as crazy about her as the rest of the world, she actually annoys me quite often, but beware she’s not in right now if you are looking for her.
Sansa… where does a girl in Westeros get such hair dye? I LOVE her red locks.
PS: Someone dies. Not saying who though. You’re on your own with that! 😀
Have you seen this episode? What did you think??
