More tricks, more Tweets!
By Fire And Blood on in Recap.

I really should have saved the “Tricks or Tweets” title for this episode. Because, as James Hibberd pointed out, nothing went as any of our protagonists hoped. But all the better for us!

So here’s our weekly Twitter reaction recap, taken from various tweets that were hashtagged #GameOfThrones (via my @Axechucker account, with help from @The_Rabbit01) for episode 7 of Game of Thrones! I almost put the dreaded Twitter FAIL WHALE pic up because there were so many good early tweets I got banned within 20 minutes of the east coast thread for spam. But everything worked out in the end, I got my tweets, and here they are!

As usual, I have kept spoilers vague (when spoiled at all), so feel free to peruse be ye a new or old viewer.

@leight79: So I gave up #GameOfThrones because it was too complicated but now I’ve learned how to concentrate properly I’m back into it. #ILoveJonSnow

@minemonkey: Shhhhhh! #gameofthrones is on! Keep the jibber jabber to a minimum.

@Thomaster_stl: Why is time moving so slow? I want to nitpick tonight’s #GameofThrones

@cdeminski: Oh shoot~ they don’t get freakin HBO at this godforsaken Inn in #Portlandia so I cant do my #gameofThrones tweets this week. Wah!!

Cry me a river. Wait, you probably saw plenty of water in Portlandia.

@Paco_ICEandFIRE: 20 minutes till #GameOfThrones (and #ghostbarkedgate)!! Everyone who isnt a Game Of Thrones watcher… is an enemy.

@ReallyAlly: I hope we get to see some Jaime Lannister or Kahl Drogo peen on #GameOfThrones tonight. #NOSHAME

There Will Be Peen.

@LyannaTargaryen: And now for Game of Thrones. Tiffany? #HBO #Gameofthrones #TrueBlood

I guffawed.

@tribalmeg: #GameofThrones, people! Designing a new purse for my sister while I wait for the show to start.

@ProfRitt: Alcohol and #gameofthrones great way to end a Sunday

Combine drinking and purse design whilst watching Game of Thrones? That’s Sunday for me!

@ChewGovtHookah: nice in addition to the usual violence nudity adult language and adult content we also have Strong Sexual Content in tonights #GameOfThrones

@Emmawhizz: “Contains scenes of rutting, swearing, shagging, violence, bonking, gore, and blokes having molten metal tipped onto heads”

@serotonin9: I can’t believe HBO is actually making “I Made the Eight!” shirts http://itsh.bo/l03E8K

Do Dornish girls count?

@singlitttlebird: ahhhhhhhhhh can my boyfriend shut up please i am trying to watch #gameofthrones i should smack him y/y

@thebratqueen: SHUT UP, SANSA #GameofThrones #Justthepreviewbutevenso

SHE’S NOT EVEN IN THIS EPISODE!

Man…

@silkskinned: My roommate insists that Viserys’ crown is “still good useful gold”. Please help. I am living with a sociopath.

@SophieXylia: From eight to nine PM on Sundays, I don’t care about anyone or anything but #gameofthrones

@ReallyAlly: I HAVE MY LANNISTER SHIRT ON

ME TOO

I really do.

Speaking of Lannisters, this brings me to the opening scene; a few nice rows of scarlet tents apparently readying for war!

@SCHirst: Now that is a shit load of tents.

Well it wasn’t THAT many. But it looked like a lot.

Inside, we finally get to meet the infamous Lord Tywin Lannister!

@Blackfish_Blues: TYWIN. He deserves the capitals just like GREGOR.

@chrisbutler83: Charles Dance is perfectly cast as Tywin Lannister. Even better than Sean Bean as Ned Stark.

@chrisbutler83: It’s only Charles bloody Dance!!!

@IndieGoPop: It’s Lord (of the) Dance!

@DAVE_ID: Charles Dance in Game of Thrones FTW

@mercersmercer: My 70 yo Mum is a Charles Dance fangirl. I’ve not told her he’s in #gameofthrones tonight. She’s going to flip.

@NanooNanoo26: Nothing like a good animal skinning to start an episode

@silkskinned: I see Lord Tywin has gone hunting for symbolism.

@melicorn: Tywin Lannister killed a stag. Get it? Get it??

@strangerbabble: Nothing like fatherly advice offered whilst eviscerating a poor beast

@Tinu: If he’s so rich and bad ass why is he skinning an animal right now?

@mspenaifurnasty: Best casting ever. That guy is TOTALLY Tywin Lannister.

To me he looked more like Charles Dance than Tywin Lannister. No shaved head? No epic sideburns? But that’s only a book quibble, really. As far as the role goes, he’s excellent.

Speaking of excellent: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau flexed his acting muscles and showed us some excellent depth in this scene; the greatest warrior in the land reduced to the role of nervous son.

@mherr1979: Scruffy!Jaime. YUM. That is all.

@jurassicsnark: Jaime Lannister I would like you so much more if you weren’t fucking your sister

@ReallyAlly: HELLO SIR HOTNESS

Really, Ally. It’s Ser Hotness.

@les111280: Why isn’t Jaime’s armor gold?

I’m going to go out on a limb and say he owns more than a few suits of armor.

@Paco_ICEandFIRE: IS THERE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE BLOOD COMING OUT OF THAT ANIMAL?

Not if you bleed ‘em first. I have seen skilled hunters who can skin a kill and literally drop no blood onto the floor.

Oh, and I watch Dexter, too.

Also please note that they used a real stag carcass, and did many, many takes. That tent must have smelled heavenly.

@Jason_Haas: Question of the night: should I parent more like Tywin Lannister? Early analysis: probably not.

@seamaidens: Why are you touching Jaime’s beautiful face with your deer gut hands, Tywin, ugh. #gameofthrones

@onep305L: Jamie Lanisters nose looks quite familiar #alphatweet

They did cast the noses well! Not exact, but slightly similar, and both striking! Even Lena has a feminine, smaller version of the Charles Dance nose, though that too is probably just kismet. I’ll be curious to see whether or not Stannis has the Robert / Renly / Gendry “Baratheon” nose.

@Paco_ICEandFIRE: WHATS GOOD WITH ALL THESE OLDER MEN IN THIS SHOW BEING KINDA SEXY? FIRST JORAH, NOW TYWIN? #DADDYCHASER

@silkskinned: Oh snap. I think Tywin knows about the foolin’ that’s been going on within his family and just straight don’t care.

@NiceQueenCersei: Is it wrong to quite fancy your Father too. #charlesdanceislovely

Only a little more wrong, Cersei.

Speaking of Cersei, Twitter freaked out again when Ned and Cersei had their little garden stand-off:

@SueThePirate: What’s with the random trunk shot of Cersei? Did Tarantino direct this episode?

@MeatSlagiron: CERSEI GOT A BAD FACE JUST SAYIN

@LindsVanWetten: “Your brother…or your lover…?” BURN.

@strangerbabble: Ned, shut your damn mouth…

@KhaleesiDany: “We shared a womb together. We belong together.” #NiceExcuse

@Paco_ICEandFIRE: FLAWLESS TWINCEST IS FLAWLESS

@LadyNorthman: I hate Cersei, but she is SO ON with that. Good night, Ned. Thank you for playing the #GameofThrones

@beng1978: Spot on Lena – just how I imagined it!

@travisbedard: tonight’s #GameofThrones scene between Ned and Cersei was stunning.

@navrosek: When you play the Game of Thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground. [Cersei Lannister]

There was a lot of just… people screaming at Ned. Like when you yell at the dumbasses in a horror flick for doing exactly the wrong thing.

@faboamanto: Ned, STOP! She’s a snake

@Paco_ICEandFIRE: NED DONT TALK!!! WALK AWAY!!! GO! STOP!!!!!!!!!! #GAMEOFTHRONES #STUPIDNEDMEME

@ReallyAlly: SHUT UP, NED

@LadyNorthman: NED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He wasn’t listening.

Some general reaction to Littlefinger and the brothel scene with Ros and Armica (a scene I personally found to be rather humorous and ironic, but your mileage may vary):

@PKGM: O_O

@silkskinned: …is. Is that Shae. OH LORD PLEASE LET THAT BE SHAE.

@txvoodoo: The Ubiquitous Ros Rides Again

@PKGM: O_____O

@DePhrank: shyet! there’s girl sucking on a girl. Lesbians existed in ancient times? Utterly uhm possible :|

@LaughingStorm:Ros likes to get her freak on, Littlefinger likes to hear himself talk.

@mherr1979: Littlefinger having whore auditions. Why am I not surprised?

@silkskinned: Littlefinger: Whore Coach to the stars!

@Paco_ICEandFIRE: IS THAT HOW WOMEN REALLY SOUND WHEN THEY ORGASM?

@LyannaTargaryen: Exposition via whores? Check. Thanks D&D!

And D&D thank you for your patronage!

@JimmyJAquino: That’s her name? Roz is a name for a dumpy 70-yr.-old waitress, not a hot-ass medieval hooker. RT @garik16: Roz = exposition.

@Queen_Cersei: ‘You be the man, and YOU be the woman.’ Oh LF, playing God again

@LisaMarieBowman: Everyone’s a critic.

@amarettosaurus: Littlefinger could teach me.

@JrDreadOnline: Is it wrong that I want to own that brothel simply because I love the decor?!?

@JrDreadOnline: Seriously … the brothel, once cleared of the powerful women and frisky drunk men would be a great home!! #gameofthrones

Jr. Dread and I think alike! Lovely window treatments too…

@helencevans: Drinking game for #GameofThrones a drink every time you see a boobie – you’ll be slaughtered in about 10 mins!! #rudey!!

@rmtn: Whore training 101: How to fake an Orgasm

@TheMichaelMoran: they could have got Simon Cowell in to critique the orgasm fakery

@xkape: #NW #GameOfThrones. TV doesn’t get better than this.

@andycampbell84: #gameofthrones amazing. Absolute filth

@theroseinbloom: Well this is just silly. Not that I don’t enjoy watching two pretty girls fool around, but, this is just silly.

@singlitttlebird: Littlefinger is so creeptastic

@JayPhoenixEnt: “He’s enjoyed his cock since he was old enough to play with it.. Why shouldn’t you??” Hahahahahahaha!!!!

@lucchaser: WTF am I watching?!?

@DePhrank: i’m not going to fight them. I’m going to fuck them

@MaidoftheRiver: Lesbian scene? After ratings much?

@liese2711: Brilliant I don’t need to pay for porn where’s my sky plus remote…

@JPLS: This scene is literally a rip-off of Al Swearengen in #Deadwood. #HBO stealing their own (kinda) ideas.

@steveclarkcouk: Now that’s how you have a staff training day!

Rimshot!

@ReallyAlly: Littlefinger is just shy of showing his little dick

@O_D_C: What we don’t know is usually what gets us killed #GameOfThrones #Littlefinger love this show

@silkskinned: …saving yourself for another? REALLY, Littlefinger?

@terps49: This is an incredibly different role for Aiden Gillen.

@tropicalT1na: Littlefinger would make a good porn director.

@kotite4ever: If Littlefinger ran in 2012, he’d have my vote.

@LunacyMoonShine: Girl on girl porn or #gameofthrones? I can’t tell.

@ElisabethRappe: I’m done with bouncing whores on #gameofthrones. I can’t believe the time they’ve wasted on them. I consider myself easy going but come on!

@mrs_monkeycat: Am i still watching Game of Thrones or has someone put a porn on!!!

@louiselane123: Watching #gameofthrones I like it but I’ve got no idea what’s happening

@xoamelia: I would like to call out #gameofthrones for being stingy in the merkin department.

@omightykaye: This is too much for me #prude

@anna_banana880: #GameOfThrones took it a bit too far tonight …. I’m disturbed!

@kispexi2: Kudos, Aiden Gillen. Any actor who can remember his lines through THAT deserves his pay. And a bonus too.

Gillen was awesome. There’s something he does completely different in this role than any I’ve seen in the past, and it sort of starts with the eyes; that half-lidded almost emotionless poker face Littlefinger always wears. Completely different from Gillen’s lively and emotional Carcetti. The first sparkle of real emotion (joy) we saw from him was in the final frame of this episode. Other than that, his face rarely betrays anything at all.

@cbills83: Sucked in by 10 minutes of a random episode of #gameofthrones now I gotta go back and watch every episode so I understand it all

@remy_lebeau: “Only by admitting what we are can we get what we want.” “And what do you want, my lord.” “Everything.”

@Blackfish_Blues: At least this time the brothel scene seemed shorter. Still no idea what LF said. I’m a hetero woman. FAIL.

Logic states that because you weren’t attracted to either participant, you should be distracted less. How would you miss what Littlefinger said? Being hetero female should have nothing at all to do with the ability to follow Littlefinger’s monologue or not. #BlackfishBizarre

@Jason_Haas: I don’t know, maybe Littlefinger should have gotten the Lakers job. He seems like a good coach.

@Jason_Haas: Littlefinger even told his “players” to hit the showers. #mikebrownisnolittlefinger

Sure, but would Kobe sign off on it or just do another “No comment” kiss of death?

@IndieGoPop: Breaktime, tip you may not want to watch first 15 mins with your mum

@SciFi_Reader: I wonder what other books HBO would add a lesbian sex scene into….Pride and Prejudice?

Pride and Prejudice and Lesbians. Sounds like a hit.

Speaking of lesbians…

@omightykaye: It’s Nymphadora!

@lafemmeluna: Oh, hey, Tonks! Is that you? #GameOfThrones

@les111280: I really do love that Natalia Tena is playing Osha. I love her as Tonks and I can’t think of anyone better for the part.

@Blackfish_Blues: I love Osha. Not just because I loved Tonks a long time ago. Maester Luwin rocks.

@SCHirst: Think this scene shows why they disregarded the Osha from the books and went in a totally different direction. Tena = Great!

(Yes, yes, I know, Tena is bisexual, but “Speaking of bisexuals” doesn’t segue as well.)

@cheesybones: Does anyone else think that girl looks a lot like Tonks from Harry Potter

Amazingly! And it looks like she got some hair tips from Bellatrix le Strange.

Trust that the real answer is given by Elio, Keeper of All Knowledge:

@westerosorg: Osha is played by Natalia Tena, aka Tonks from the Harry Potter films. She’s also part of a band, @molotov_jukebox!

Good band too. That girl can rock an accordian.

Theon got love. And hate. Mostly hate.

@mherr1979: Why the frak is Theon of all people getting more screentime than Robb? What is this fuckery?

@jmanzel: Go Theon!

@singlitttlebird: Theon stop acting like you’re smart. We all know the truth.

@Sir_Davidio: Poor Theon, needing some sex now that Ros is gone. Oh well, he still has Robb. ;)

@frodabaggins: Theon, why such a cock?

@Sir_Davidio: Leave Tonks alone, Theon. She’s much smarter than you. Don’t even try.

@mherr1979: Oh snap. The wildling has you there, Theon. Douche.

@Blackfish_Blues: … but is Theon mistreated cause he’s an asshole, or is he an asshole cause everybody belittles him?

@les111280: I’m really not a fan of the Maester chains in the series.

@silkskinned: “As far south as south goes”… so… north? #iamterrible

@Blackfish_Blues: Instead I like the Osha-Theon scene & the implications. I really wanted them to kiss. There’s chemistry.

The kind of great chemistry you find when the one in chains is in danger of being raped by the one who isn’t. Undeniable!

(It is apparently Pick on Blackfish Day. We should make this a national holiday.)

Jon and Sam say hi!

@frodabaggins: HI JON SNOW. Long time no see!

@onep305: Yea Jon Snow :) I’m in #heaven

@pigeonspotting: Sam the fat kid on the wall needs to wash his hair

@Blackfish_Blues: Nice, sweet Sam. But the horse out of the woods is unnatural. Great Mormont expression

@Paco_ICEandFIRE: BLOW THE HORN? EUPHEMISM FOR JONS….?

No, Paco.

@amarettosaurus: Jon doesn’t miss girls, he has you now Sam.

I actually wasn’t aware there were Jon/Sam shippers. The More You Know…

And here we are at a scene which apparently introduces the series’ most popular character never seen onscreen:

@ReallyAlly: THE BOAR HAS ARRIVED

@lucchaser: This is some fucked up shit, why didn’t we get to see what happened with the boar?!? It probably was funny

@LadyNorthman: We love you boar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Harsh.

So King Robert lays dying, his faithful son by his side…

@vslayer1012: Joffrey even looks obnoxious in scenes when he’s not even talking..

@tribalmeg: Robert Baratheon having a moment of paternal regret with Draco. Sorry, I mean Joffrey

@ReallyAlly: Cry like a little bitch, Joffrey

@chariscroft: Didn’t know Joffrey could feel emotion.

Sure he can. Fear, anger, hate… Say, he’d make a swell Sith.

@singlitttlebird: MISSED MY THRUST LOLOLOL. MY DIRTY MIND

@TheMichaelMoran: King Tesco? Say it ain’t so!

@LisaMarieBowman: Agck! That wound made me cringe..

Oddly, I kind of expected worse. Sort of like Tywin’s stag, but with blood.

@silkskinned: Oh Robert. Even with your intestines hanging out you’re making impractical feasting plans.

@NothinonQueens: The king can’t die nooooo!!!!!!!

@MissDaubs: Gutted about Robert, It’s not going to be the same next week… Not as many ‘whore’ ‘fucks’ and ‘BRING ME MORE WINE’… :(

@mherr1979: I know Robert’s a shite king and all, but Mark Addy’s making me feel really sad about this. :(

@SCHirst: A moment’s silence for Robert please, and for Addy who made him great.

@LyannaTargaryen: Suddenly hungry for a side of bacon

Damn, Lyanna. A little respect.

@Blackfish_Blues: AWESOME ADDY. From now on I want everybody to address me as “Blackfish Blues, titles, titles.”

@WStaats8: Wow, Ned just wrote that. Awesome.

@vivaciousvirgo: Ned…you’ve gotta tell him that the punk bitch isn’t his kid.

@Paco_ICEandFIRE: SUCH BEAUTIFUL PENMANSHIP, NED!!

@ReallyAlly: Shut up and die, Robert.

@amarettosaurus: Ned is trolling Robert on his deathbed

@ReallyAlly: PIG MURDERED BY A PIG LOLOLOLOLOL

@Sir_Davidio: “King Robert Baratheon, murdered by a pig.” Oh, so Cersei killed him?

@tracybegins: i’ll miss mark addy. he’s been GREAT.

Addy was outstanding. Another Curtain Call post upcoming!

So Ned goes outside to talk to his co-conspiritors—er, I mean, small council…

@Paco_ICEandFIRE: HMM I WANT SOME MILK OF THAT PAPI RIGHT THURR

@vslayer1012: Ned Stark about Robert: “No man could’ve protected him from himself.”

@ReallyAlly: Ned, you need to get out while you still can.

@mherr1979: Robert refreshed by Prince Valium…sorry Lancel Lannister. That went well.

@vivaciousvirgo: I knew that wine carrier would be the death of the king.

Lancel gets some love even when he’s not onscreen. Props to Eugene Simon. Can’t wait to see Lancel’s, ah, “expanded role” next season.

Back at the Dothrakis…

@sweetiepiepen: AWWWWW YEAAHHHHHH! (also known as Khal Drogo is on-screen)

@silkskinned: Dany and Drogo just melt my heart. I WOULD BRAID BELLS INTO THE HAIR OF MY SUN-AND-STARS

@Paco_ICEandFIRE: DANYS HAIR IS LOOKING SO RAGGEDY. GURL U LIVE WITH HORSE PPL. GET A BETTER WEAVE!

Don’t think it’s a weave, bro!

@Sir_Davidio: Oh look, Jason Momoa CAN speak!

@TheFifthDoctor: Ian Glen really does bring some serious clout & nobility to every role, doesn’t he? #DoctorWho

@silkskinned: Was the dude in the background just hanging sheets of paper on a tree?

The Vaes Dothrak branch of Dunder Mifflin.

@ReallyAlly: JORAH ;_____;

@ReallyAlly: JORAH WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO HER IF YOU LOVE HER? ;__;

@Paco_ICEandFIRE: “YOU WILL DRINK” HBIC HAS SPOKEN!

@ReallyAlly: SAVE HER JORAH

@ReallyAlly: I can’t be the only one who ships Dany/Jorah…

Probably not. Just you and a shitton of over-40 males who wish they could date a teenage princess. Me being the father of a teenager who thinks she’s a princess, I say… Good luck, y’all! Have fun with that.

(And actually, from the sultry looks Doreah has been giving Jorah… looks like our “fine arts of fornication” teacher is looking for another side-project, now that Viserys is crowned.)

Back at the Wall, Jon gets sent to Hufflepuff by the sorting hat and is all sorts of pissed…

@amarettosaurus: But I WANNA BE SPESHUL…#ohjon

@Roewoof: Jon better not take those vows. Steward my ass.

@EmmaRobertson92: Oh Jon, you so emo. Come let me pet your hair.

@NiceQueenCersei: Even when having a tantrum Jon Snow is hot

@SCHirst: I always wanted to be a wizard! ROFL #gameofthrones

@Fuelpagan: I always wanted to be a wizard too Sam.

@ReallyAlly: Thank you, Sam. You’re the only person on the wall with a brain.

@Blackfish_Blues: Sam aka @johnbradleywest, you’re awesome. Jon thinks so too, he’s thunderstruck.

@amarettosaurus: Sam has a crushhh..

@silkskinned: Everything Sam says just makes me love him more.

@Blackfish_Blues: Jon, you’re a bit of an asshole yourself right now. Pyp = @JosefAltin does right putting you in your place.

And now a special message (or four) from Paco:

@Paco_ICEandFIRE: WHY DOES SAM REMIND ME OF FIEVEL? #GAMEOFTHRONES #ANAMERICANTAIL

@Paco_ICEandFIRE: OMG THEY R SO CUTE TOGETHER! SNARLY FOREVER!!

@Paco_ICEandFIRE: DAREON PRESENT URSELF TO MY BED WHEN YOU ARRIVE

@Paco_ICEandFIRE: CAN U BLAME THE HIGHLORD PYP?

I need to start a Wisdom of Paco thread.

Actually… I VOTE PACO for the next guest on A Podcast of Ice and Fire. I think he would share a fine appreciation for House Blackwoody.

So Ned gets various visitors, all of whom seem to have pretty good ideas…

@Paco_ICEandFIRE: NED LISTEN TO UR SASSY GAY FRIEND!!! YOU STUPID BITCH #WHATWHATWHATAREUDOING?

@omnipotentseal: “Do you still believe good soldiers make good kings?”- Renly asking one of many key questions about leadership in #GameofThrones.

@ReallyAlly: Renly: 1 Ned: 0

@KellyJonesmusic: “We only make peace with our enemies. That’s why we call it making peace.”

@ReallyAlly: NED, LOOK AT YOUR LIFE. LOOK AT YOUR CHOICES.

@O_D_C: “What you suggest is treason” – “Only if we lose” #GameOfThrones SO GOOD!

@ReallyAlly: LITTLEFINGER IS AMUSED. Rightly so.

@silkskinned: “You know what you want me to do.” Yes, Littlefinger, I want you to SPONTANEOUSLY COMBUST

@silkskinned: THINGS CAN STILL DEPART RADICALLY FROM THE BOOKS KILL HIM NOW NED KILL HIM NOW

That would be a radical departure! Someone needs to write a “What If…”

And for anyone who hasn’t heard the news, Ghost barked!

@Paco_ICEandFIRE: #GHOSTBARKEDGATE

@ReallyAlly: People need to stop getting their panties in a bunch over ghost barking. It’s not that big of a deal.

@amarettosaurus: Time for a Jon/Sam wedding!

@silkskinned: “You came to us as vultures. Now you’re crows, which are smaller and also eat dead bodies.”

@Paco_ICEandFIRE: THAT TREE IS CRYING TEARS OF BLOOD FOR NEDS STUPID DECISIONS

@omnipotentseal: Night’s Watch oath is badass.

@Roewoof: Omg. Please let that not be Benji’s hand.

@silkskinned: “MASTUR JON I BRINGED U SUMTHING CAN I HAS A TREET 8D”

Drogo performs the Haka:

@DePhrank: Drogo killed his brother-in-law for messing his wife. Let’s see what he does to this muthafucka!

@DePhrank: He wanted to poison Drogo’s wife. Send him to the afterlife!!!

@Varsuuk: @Emilia__Clarke re: Jason’s slow buildup and dancelike (silverback!) movements along with drums… Wow. Great work.

Khal Drogo is so fierce he should have a silverback tattooed on one arm and a lion tattooed on the other!

@dirtygeekysexy: I want to lick him soooooo bad, just to see if he tastes as good as he looks. RT @mrzbocadeloba Momoa is off the chain fine.

@ThatsSoTaguchi: Well holy living motherfuck Drago, that was some speech.

@jiggatravels: All day, everyday. RT @mulatta: Once more, with feeling: Khal Drogo, my body is ready.

@mrzbocadeloba: ‘Moon of my life’ I just died, dead.

@mrzbocadeloba: Holy Drogo rant…I likey. #gameofthrones Stop.Repeat.Stop.Repeat.

@SCHirst: Dothraki does sound so good though. #gameofthrones

@strangerbabble: Robert is dead, Joffrey is pond scum, but Drago still ROCKS! #GameofThrones #WhoKnewHeWasKlingon?

@SCHirst: Wow. The Drogo scene has just sent chills down my spine. Amazing.

@wispa9: Khal Drogo is epic.

@wispa9: Apart from the rape and slavery, that is.

Can’t have your cake and eat it too, wispa. If you want the Khal, you get all of the Khal.

@TheMichaelMoran: You see? You SEE what happens when you bring crap wine to a party? People declare war!

@McSherrie: Khal Drogo, you can give our baby a throne anytime!

@ScareHouseScott: Khal Drogo is a very effective motivational speaker.

@ikkiv12: Woah. Horse King so hot right now. White blonde queen absolutely LOVING it

@silkskinned: I want to be as good a spouse as Drogo, all setting fire to dudes who threaten the moon of my life

@silkskinned: Or dragging them naked behind our khalasar. Whatever works.

@noblebeast: “How come every time we see a dick on this show, it’s terrible?”

@ReallyAlly: UGH THAT WAS NOT THE PEEN I WANTED TO SEE

@SenorGeekus: The failed assassin resembled the pervy dude from #SuperBad. The one who drove them to the party

@TheMichaelMoran: The part we want you for is the bad off-licence man. You get two lines & you get dragged behind a horse with your johnson out

@Roewoof: Is it just me or is the naked assasin sporting an erection as they drag him around naked?

Erection? Like one that points down? Talk about making sex awkward and problematic.

I thought he was just, you know, large.

What.

That’s large, isn’t it? I mean, for a short guy.

Righto! So!

Ned is marched to the throne room. Luckily he has Littlefinger’s trusty gold cloaks…

@strangerbabble: Ned, if only you had taken Renly up on his offer #terribledecision #gameofthrones #icantwatch

@amarettosaurus: Renly’s going to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches

@SCHirst: King Joffrey. To quote Arya: “Seven Hells!”

@silkskinned: King Joffrey of the houses of Bieber and Incest, first of his name, biggest fucktard in the Seven Kingoms.

@silkskinned: DON’T EVER GIVE ANYTHING TO CERSEI SHE’LL RIP IT UP

@sexorcake: Oh Ned Stark you big twat!!!! STAB HER IN THE FACE!!

@nachoillarregui: Ned, Ned, Ned. Pero mira que eres tonto. Honorable, pero tonto.

@amarettosaurus: Cersei Lannister–getting shit done.

@Dojo_Studios: There is no middle ground…

@MatthewBarry86: :O

@MOMXW: Baelish….what a B*****D what a B*****D what a B*****D what a B*****D what a B*****D what a B*****D what a B*****D!!!

@AustinMovieSnob: “I did warn you not to trust me.”

Yes he did. Petyr Baelish: the most honest and forthright man not in prison in Westeros.

@BadClaire: This scene would be vastly different if the two whores from Littlefinger’s room were in the background.

@MagicStick: Holy hell that was magnificent TV. I actually nearly stood up in excitement at the end there #GameOfThrones

@rgentry3: Shit winter looks closer.

@Paco_ICEandFIRE: OMG NO STOOOOOOOOOOPPPPPPPP!!

@jflowlu: Baelish you PIECE OF SH*T!

@markgfh: Ned Stark, you should know better than to trust Tommy Carcetti!

@CEFairley: Damnit Carcetti. Where’s the loyalty???

@jdsunleashed: Ned needs a Senator Clay Davis at his side “Sheeeeeeeeeit”

References to The Wire are always welcome here.

@damien_a_p: I wonder if Aiden Gillen will ever play someone who isn’t at best sketchy? #GameOfThrone

@Queen_Cersei: And THAT’S why Littlefinger is my desktop wallpaper.

@pigeonspotting: LITTLEFINGER IS A SHITBAG

@Queen_Cersei: New Lannister motto: Fuck y’all.

It has a ring to it…

@glenquagmire22: That episode just made me very self-concious about which friends I should trust…

@NiceQueenCersei: Of course we Lannisters demand absolute obedience. Absolute. #wealsopaywell

@truetothecorps: Go to a distant land with a compound bow. Shoot a Lanister in the face. #gameofthrones

@SirJohnCard: And a big F U to Cersei and Baelish.

@ReallyAlly: *EPIC FACEPALM*

@cloudy_clarity: Two things Ned: Never trust a pimp & women who don’t flinch when accused of incest are fuckin’ crazy & will never stand down.

@AidanGillenFans: Literally just screamed “OH MY GOOOOOOOOD” at my TV at that ending! #LITTLEFINGER!!! You BASTARD!!

Please note this was coming from one of Aidan Gillen’s biggest fans.

@dref22: Fraaaaaaaaaak! #GameOfThrones

So say we all.

So some wrap-up thoughts…

@_jilly: King’s Landing Butler took himself up a notch this week, he’s the breakout star!

I think he’s actually played by one of the producers. Or a VFX guy. Or something. He’s someone from behind-the-scenes who stepped up to play Epic Butler.

@jmunrath: Should’ve been titled, “Game of Thrones:Don’t Get Attached” or “Game of Thrones:You Should’ve Listened to Renly, You Idiot.”

@jenjavitis: Aaaauuugghhhh! #gameofthrones!!!!! Wow!!! You’re killing me!!! Joffrey sucks ass…and so does Cersei!!! LOVE this show!!!

@benjaminbecotte: What the fuck just happened?!? OMG! I’m starting to hate this series but at the same time love it. Can’t wait till next week.

Love / Hate does seem to be trending.

@lavenderflames: This show is like porn with plot

@sbjaved: Game of Thrones is like watching porn with good looking women

Porn seems to be trending as well.

@AyeKil: I have no idea what #GameOfThrones is about…

@Fagitron69: whoever thinks #gameofthrones is fantasy deserves to get a couldron full of boiling gold dumped on their head

Thanks for that opinion, Fagitron69!

@rauduskoivu: #GameofThrones officially reached “shit just got real” but I’m ludicrously excited for next ep because shit should transcend shit itself.

@Burn0321: #UNFUCKINGBELIEVABLE!!!

@greytfriend: Whoever did the casting for #gameofthrones should get the Emmy for sure. Every character is great.

In Nina Gold we trust.

@MaxwellZierath: #gameofthrones is the best fucking show on television right now. Hands down.

Well it’s not The Bachelorette, but I guess many people here would concur.

@Meplus: صدق انه ودي أشوف حلقة #GameofThrones الليله، بس للأسف الليلة حقة ندى العمر

Harsh, bro. Most people love it, or think it’s meeeeean!

@KaseBeats: @GetBan dope, need some more of that. you get onto Game Of Thrones yet? shit is meeeean.

@SapphireIsland: Every episode of Game of Thrones gets better and better. Hunks? Trees crying blood? Incest? Treachery? Lezzas? It’s all here!

@AryaSheWolf: Good episode. Needed more of the Hound killing dudes though. #samecanbesaidforallepisodes #ofallshows #spinoff #sandorcleganekillsdudesinhd

@Hillsie: I get more and more confused by #GameofThrones as the weeks progress

@SatanAndFriends: Really getting into #gameofthrones lately. Totally reminds me of what went on before I got cast out of heaven LOL

LOL

III_SCOUSER_III: @sky_atlantic #GameofThrones is the best show on TV at the moment. Gutted only 3 episodes left

… That is sort of depressing.

Only ten episodes for season two, eh?

Next week: apparently the girls were never shipped back to Winterfell! Who knew?

    A little off topic, but since this is the most recent thread, I thought I’d post it here:

    One of the Lush employees in my city has been enjoying the series thus far, and plans to read the books. She’s even come up with a Lush products combination that is inspired by the series: (I won’t link to it, because you’ll find out where I live, and I don’t want that information out there)

    King of Skin Body Butter (a crown for Kings and Queens of the realm – not golden, thank you very much)

    Godiva shampoo bar (cause it seems like the crown goes best with blond)

    Dragon’s Egg bath bomb (for the Targaryens)

    So, I am totally going to go to Lush and pick these products up, just to get the experience. I’m ready to feel like a Targaryen princess, kthnx

    Posted June 1, 2011 at 5:12 am | Permalink

    YES! YES! Please declare it “Pick on Blackfish Day” at least twice a day! I’m game to be nitpicked to death for the cause. (It’s also very easy, see below.) At least this way SOMEONE will be mentioning the poor man’s name, since HBO and GRRM pointedly ignore him and the Tullys. Seven hells, they’ve even demoted the Riverlands to “AND the Riverlands”.

    Now, I can explain…

    @Blackfish_Blues: At least this time the brothel scene seemed shorter. Still no idea what LF said. I’m a hetero woman. FAIL.

    Logic states that because you weren’t attracted to either participant, you should be distracted less. How would you miss what Littlefinger said? Being hetero female should have nothing at all to do with the ability to follow Littlefinger’s monologue or not. #BlackfishBizarre

    LOLOLOL, I realized it was a nonsequitur the moment I typed “Enter”. The logic works more or less thus. Two strangers (one a rather dreaded stranger) of the female persuasion are howling in the foreground while a main character is saying something meaningful in the background. Now, if I were attracted to women I might enjoy the howling, as several men on these threads admitted they did, and keep it as a pleasant addition to LF’s speech. Since I’m not, the howling was like a 747 passing overhead while I’m trying to listen to someone.

    (PLEASE don’t turn FaB’ and Rabbit’s great work into a discussion about how I’m a prude. I did not mention the sex. Only the howling.)

    @Blackfish_Blues: Instead I like the Osha-Theon scene & the implications. I really wanted them to kiss. There’s chemistry.

    The kind of great chemistry you find when the one in chains is in danger of being raped by the one who isn’t. Undeniable!

    Waaah, I’m behind with comments and reviews. I’ll get around to it maybe next week, I’m leaving tomorrow for a convention. But the thought is interesting. I didn’t get a “rape” vibe from Theon. He’s not assertive enough. I rather like the way they are going with him, though.

    Oh, and as for shipping Dany-Jorah, I’m totally on board, though I guess the ship ha sunk. It’s also a ship for women who fantasize about older, handsome men sweeping in to fight alongside them, maybe in need of redemption. *cough*Barristan*cough*

    (Younger, handsome men are accepted too, only they are still a little raw in this show. But if the whole Night Watch Support Group dropped by, they’d be a blast to hang out with!)

    Thanks, folks, great job as usual!

    Re Osha and Theon, I certainly think that if she ‘acquiesced’ he might briefly think he was being Mr Cool Intimidator, but she’d pin him pretty quickly!

    My favourite bit in a while from Completely Unspoiled Speculation

    I’m almost afraid to meet Stannis, by the way. I know he’s been described as a lobster (crusty and dumb? red in the face and snappish? delicious with butter? ) but I haven’t a clue what that means. Everyone reacts to the thought of Stannis being king with either mocking or near horror.

    I sort of want him to come striding into a room and snap Renly’s head off with his giant claw.

    Melisandre = giant claw?

    Edited to add it getting even better! Some astute person points out, ‘hmm, isn’t it weird that Stannis has the old Targaryen place? Wouldn’t he have the Baratheon holdings, not Renly?’ and the response is the rather logical but also rather hilarious

    Dude, b/c the ex-Targeryen lands were obviously the best in the whole freakin’ kingdom(s)!! Targeryens were kings for 300 years, they likely put together the best possible territory for themselves, like Bordeaux and Provence and the Loire Valley combined, and Dragonstone is probably full of the best of everything, since the Targeryens were so rich and powerful and privileged. My guess is, as far as luxury goes, Dragonstone far outstrips Baratheonland

    Stannis wishes.

    Re: Stag.

    It did shock me, but it was a powerful scene. As for the actual beast, I seem to remember – can’t find a quote, sorry – that there’s some agreement with parks so that when they have a beast who dies of old age or illness they provide it for such scenes.

    No stag was killed expressly for the scene; probably the contrary, they scheduled the scene for when there was a dead stag available. If someone knows more than I do on the subject, I’d like to know if it’s true or if I’ve hallucinated it.

    As for taking entrails out fifty times, there probably was an entrail-man nearby who put them back inside every time… or Charles Dance got so involved that he did it himself :P

    Eleanor: Melisandre = giant claw?

    I believe it means Stannis’ claw, in reference to Loras saying in Episode 5 that Stannis has the charisma and personality of a lobster. Now, lobsters have claws where I come from — Boston. Caribbean lobsters don’t. I guess the poster was assuming Dragonstone aquatics are more like those at Beantown than at Bridgetown. The real point here is that TV Loras assumes it too. I mean, lobsters with no claws have the personality of Bran, not Stannis. That’s a faux pas I didn’t catch earlier.

    Eleanor: Some astute person points out, ‘hmm, isn’t it weird that Stannis has the old Targaryen place? Wouldn’t he have the Baratheon holdings, not Renly?’

    To those who haven’t read ASoIaF this must be confusing. I don’t believe it was made clear why Stannis is at Dragonstone. However, to those people the answer should be obvious: The Clam Chowdah.

    Mike: I didn’t see anyone else comment, so… LOLI hope we see Bubbles selling tunics outside of Balor’s sept in a couple of episodes.

    Which he follows with a nice back alley sesh with the milk of the poppy.

    Blackfish Blues:
    Re: Stag.

    It did shock me, but it was a powerful scene. As for the actual beast, I seem to remember – can’t find a quote, sorry – that there’s some agreement with parks so that when they have a beast who dies of old age or illness they provide it for such scenes.

    No stag was killed expressly for the scene; probably the contrary, they scheduled the scene for when there was a dead stag available. If someone knows more than I do on the subject, I’d like to know if it’s true or if I’ve hallucinated it.

    Hmm…well that could explain why we could see Charles Dance’s breath acouple times. If it had been dead a week sitting in a cooler/freezer you would *REALLY* want to keep it chilled or it would start to stink real quick.

    Mike Chair,

    Yeah but then he’d drop dead from the Tears of Lys she slipped into his 40.

    LOL. Probably. She’s too cunning for Omar. You’d have to call Brother Mouzone. “I see you favor Tears of Lys …”

    Maybe that’s why Jamie’s hair was darker. Just got a call, gotta run off immediately to the dead stag scene, no time to dye those golden locks :)

    Paco,

    @Paco — it was the Lion and Silverback tattoos that “the undercover specialist” Philip sports in the most recent season. I cried sweet tears of joy that there are other people who love Survivor and GOT.

    I’ve never really been a shipper, but I have to admit that I do kind of think the Jon/Sam pairing is kind of interesting. Certainly not the most ridiculous idea I’ve heard.

    Thanks for this, I look forward to it all week!

    And I concur, Paco must be the next guest on the podcast. He must.

    Damn uppity authors making it hard for the little guys! .. oh wait …

    Looove this post:) And I’m such a Dany/Jorah shipper… Although not in the books, because, you know… Books don’t have Ian Glen…

    Zuziako, for me the books did have Iain Glen :D He and Sean Bean were the reason I started reading. Came for Jorah, stayed for Sandor, went crazy for Brynden. Well, getting 2 out of 3 is not bad… plus a bonus Barristan.

    Khal Drogo is so fierce he should have a silverback tattooed on one arm and a lion tattooed on the other!

    Also, he should have bat winds, laser eyes and eat baby krakens for breakfast.
