Twitter Littles
By Fire And Blood on in Editorial, Humor, Recap.

FreeVector-New-Twitter-Logo-GraphicsWelcome, peeps, to the last Twitter post of the year! (Mayhaps!)

(Okay, not really mayhaps. More details on what I have planned will come at the end of this post.)

Coincidentally, this is also Winter-is-Coming’s 2,000th post! ‘Tis an honor, and all of us at WiC send our gratitude out to the fans, Gatewatch loyalists, and bottom-supporters alike!

And so this is a fine hello and a farewell! I, the awesomesauce @Axechucker, with assistance from Croatia’s Crusher (@The_Rabbit01) as well as the dorkmonkey who stares back at me every morning in the mirror (@KRRCross) have once again pierced the veil, crossed over to the other side, and returned bloodied and bowed but not broken.

Tonight’s slings and arrows were taken from tweets bearing the hashtags #GameOfThrones and/or #Mhysa. But you knew that.

In fandom community news, @BeautyBrienne is home safe and sound, her newborn on her lap, mother and daughter both ready and eager to watch GoT and live-Tweet the experience together!

… No?

@BeautyBrienne: The babe is tentatively sleeping and according to the doctor, my blood pressure is well in hand. Bring it on, #GameOfThrones

Tyke’s missing one helluva show.

Seeing as this was a 70-minute (…ish) episode, let’s leap right in, shall we?

(As Lex said, “Mhysa so excited!”)

Some people had odd expectations:

@Ser_Pounce: i think the finale is going to be one of those clip episodes where they show nostalgic scenes from other seasons

@Quinn_Taylor: Time for #GameofThrones . Rumor has it that winter finally arrives and kills everyone who didn’t die last week.

@katelyn_gee: I just want to see Jaime and Brienne

Could happen!

@kimpanzee: That awful moment you realize it’s episode 10 today

‏@islanddinthesun: What even is game of thrones lolwut

Man, I don’t even know.

@AngryGoTFan: HOW HAVE THEY NOT CANCELLED THIS SHOW YET?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!? #NOONEUNDERSTAAANDS

Man, I don’t even know.

@FYWinterfell: Fewer names in the credits :(

@shannonpixie: No nudity? Fail.

@jennifersimas: IS THIS NECESSARY TO SHOW WHAT HAPPENED LAST WEEK I CAN ASSURE U ME AND THE NORTH HAVE NOT FORGOT

We opened where we last left off: at the Twins. Roose Bolton, newly anointed Warden of the North, stands upon the parapets overlooking the fiery destruction of Robb’s remnants.

@BigDamnHerosSir: Oh Jesus, we’re still at the Twins. I don’t want to be at the Twins anymore.

@okelay: WE START WITH FUCKING BOLTON?

Sounds about right.

@motelsonthemoon: Roose walks into the club like waddup, I killed EVERYBODY!

@tamaralp22: UNF treated with Roose Bolton at the start yes please!

Roose/Ramsay/Walder: FMK?

And then we see—

Well.

This:

@CaryOnwyrld: Ohhhhh noooooooooo

@shallbyjenoka: Omg what’d they do to rob’s body. #disrespectful

@lesley1810: Oh that’s too far now.!!

@scottmillband: Roose bolton you fucking arsehole! Rob with the wolfs head! :(

‏@ImJStone: Dang that is fuckin crazy #nother

@becca_diane11: Oh and this part just breaks my heart #kinginthenorth

@Zayns_Brownie: That was so sick :(

@AngryGoTFan: ROBB THATS NO WAY TO GET AHEAD #NOONEUNDERSTAAANDS

@ThelemaVeritas: So… Arya does get to see her brother… #Greyrobb

@karltmeakin: Somehow Grey Robb was even more horrible on screen than in the book.

I’ve heard “RobbWind,” and “Grey Wobb.”

@hnt108: So nervous about the #gameofthrones finale after last week. 2 minutes in and I’m already horrified!

@BigDamnHerosSir: Jesus christ, we’re three minutes in and I’m crying already. #GreyWindandRobb

@iamRobster: I guess that means Robb Stark is definitely dead then

Yes, Robster. He is.

(Aside: Robster… a Robb/Stannis slashfic?)

@AKA_Qthulhu: King in the North now with 100% added furry fetish

Too soon, Q!

@prtyflyfrarygy: Hey Robb Stark, what you know about rockin’ a wolf on your noggin?

Wut wuuuut!

@MiasBadAim: I HATE ALL OF YOU THE NORTH IS NEVER YOURS BRAN AND RICKON QND SANSA AND JON AND ARYA WILL DESTROY YOU

@BitchJustChill: I Honestly LIVE For The Unpredictability In This Show.

@HarleyHorcrux: NO ARYA U CAN’T SEE THAT

Well, she did.

@deefalc: AND THAT FIRST SCENE HAS OFFICIALLY UPSET ME MORE THAN THE ENTIRE RW #ILOVEYOUARYA

@DrivelSheWrote: ok, that? Arya’s face? yes, #gameofthrones , make that hole in my heart bigger why don’t you.

@motelsonthemoon: ARYA MY BB! oaifja;lfj e;lajfaelkjf #Tears #creys

@LowerEastScribe: How many times does Arya need to see someone she loves headless? C’mon

@syafiqwahab: Arya my heart bleeds for you T.T

She had it rough. But Maisie was fantastic this episode.

Way down south in King’s Landing, oblivious to all, Sweet Sansa walks with Tyrion…

@starkalypse: The Kings Landing plots have been my favorite this season by far. Brilliant acting, great writing.

@jennifersimas: Sansa BABYGIRL

@deefalc: I am in LOVE with show Sansa right now

@SkyyTV: SANSA, I AM IN LOVE WITH YOU.

AND SHE LOVES YOU TOO, SKYY TV!

@BeautyBrienne: Sansa has a bit of a devilish streak. I like it.

@DCPlod: Tyrion and Sansa…so damn cute.

@deefalc: I love that Sansa & Tyrion are bonding. OMG this is amazing

@Daenerys_TDrogo: Yup Tyrion and Sansa, beauty and the beast its match made in Disney

@aerynsunx: Sansa, Tyrion has so much to teach you about revenge.

@charliepage__x: Is it bad that I kind of ship Sansa and Tyrion together?

Little.

Angry GoT Fan had a few thoughts on this scene:

@AngryGoTFan: PUNKED WESTEROS STARRING SANSA LANNISTER #NOONEUNDERSTAAANDS

@AngryGoTFan: DESMOND IS A GRELL!!! A GRELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #NOONEUNDERSTAAANDS

@AngryGoTFan: THERE ARE MANY CRAKEHALLS BUT NO DESMOND!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #NOONEUNDERSTAAANDS

Desmond Crakehall sounds like a pervert? Hell, he’s probably a saint next to people with lurid names like Othel Yarwick.

(Yeah, that’s right, I’m bringin’ back the Yarwick hate. Come at me bro!)

@_elliegreen: Tyrion you absolute babe #lavya

@TanyaJones14: My crush on Tyrion Lannister has gone from minimal stirrings to full on lust.I’ll have your babies my lord.

@raw_65: “He’s quite a good looking midget” – mother

Oh, mother.

@SiFoulaReel: I love that Tyrion, like Father Ted, has a list of liars & twats.

Father Ted references will always get you in.

Well, whatever the case… it can now be said with affirmation: Sansa don’t know shit.

Tyrion is summoned to the Small Council via Pod (insert sound of girls squeeing)…

@NoOptimism: POD!!!

@rozicollier: How cute is Podrick? Super cute.

@Lady_Nassahorn: Pmsl all the ladies love Podrick

(See?)

Tyrion gets the news of Frey’s betrayal of the Starks and Tullys…

@NiceQueenCersei: Joffrey is delighted. Little shit.

@EvaKlarenbeek: I really love the scene where Joffrey runs around like a enthusiastic puppy.

@dancingupastorm: “Killed a few puppies today?”

@_deadkennedy: When does Tywin rip Joffrey a new one? He’s been on my TV without being slapped too long.

@TaTasAndWine: Joffrey has not been slapped this season. Time to change that.

@BeautyBrienne: Someone please, please slap Joffrey. Please. It’d be like a name day gift.

@HarleyHorcrux: Oh shit Joff you about to get slapped

Nope! He wasn’t slapped all season!

I feel like… something is awry in the universe.

@BigDamnHerosSir: Charles Dance sends the motherfucking king to bed without his supper. And it is AMAZING.

@TrevDon: King Jeoffrey, go to bed NOW!

@SteveBest79: Joffrey is a shit but Jack Gleeson is truly fantastic as that shit

@dandelionn_wine: Jack Gleeson is a brilliant actor and anyone who says different can gtfo.

@PETITE_DAMZELL: Tywin Lannister is the original Joe Jackson #gameofthrones #stolen

@BigDamnHerosSir: Charles Dance. I just came. Thank you.

@NiceQueenCersei: Oh Daddy. You’re the best.

@AngryGoTFan: TYWIN A GOOD SONG FOR THE DEAD STARKS WOULD BE DONT FEAR THE REAPER #COWBELL #NOONEUNDERSTAAANDS

I understand. #morecowbell

@RexDeLaCoeur: Damn. Tywin. Father of the year….

@JuniorGeneral: On Father’s Day remember to thank you father for not being Tywin Lannister.

@SDKacho: New idea for a Hallmark card: I wanted to kill you after your birth, but didn’t because you’re family. #FromTywintoTyrion

@BitterOldJoe: Dinklage gets all the pub, but Charles Dance owned this whole season.

@DCPlod: CHARLES DANCE, people. He deserves and needs an Emmy.

I think needs is stretching it.

@kadenbowen: I hope the blonde bitch with the dragons sets fire to all the Lanisters

@MaesterPycelle: Daddy Lannister just pwns everything. No wonder I betrayed Aerys for his authoritah.

Grand Maester Pycelle, as voiced by Cartman, ladies and gentlemen.

We end our time this season with Sansa in her usual outlook: sad. (And every season has gotten sadder for her. Yikes. Surely there must be a rainbow for her in season 4!)

@becca_diane11: Man poor Sophie I feel like she’s crying in every scene this season

@motelsonthemoon: All I want to do is give Sansa a hug but i can’t. It’s terrible.

Back north, Bran and co. arrive at the Wall…

@NiceQueenCersei: Its always so nice to see Bran and his travelling band.

I just had a Paul McCartney and Wings flashback.

… and can’t get the song out of my head. Thanks, Cersei.

@SinfulKnight: So like, the Wall in Game of Thrones is like border control right?

@relion: Omfg Hodor yelling “HODOOOOOR” down the well is the best moment in television ever. Shut down all other tv shows

@BigDamnHerosSir: “Hodoooooooooooor” The entire house yelled back “HODOOOOOOOOOR!!!”

@NoBullJustShit: I want to yell “Hodor” down a well!

@eriktopham: HODOOOOOOOOR

‏@In_the_Lupe: “HODOOOOOOOOR!”

@evilapprentice: HOOODOOOORRRRRRRRR-RRR-RRR–RRRRRR

@NoOptimism: What did Hodor say? I didn’t quite catch it.

@Jold_: Hodor should take the Iron Throne.

@AlanScottHolley: Hodor for King. #vote4Hodor

Lot of love for Hodor too. Kristian Nairn flexing his emoting skillz!

@motelsonthemoon: Rat. King. FUCK YES!

@aerynsunx: Oh Bran. You’ve just given me soooo much hope with that horrible, horrible story.

I know exactly what you mean!

Back at the Twins, Roose and Lord Walder Frey get to know one another more intimately over brunch.

@jennifersimas: Walder Frey didndjssjsjdndjdjfjdjdnd die

@TaTasAndWine: Walder Frey: How STDS were born.

@BigDamnHerosSir: Shut up, Filch. I’m waiting for McGonagall to show up and stun your ass. #GameOfThrones #HarryPotter

@grantbosse: Tonight’s episode of Game Of Thrones: The Poorly Attended Brunch

@ToribioMendoza: Red wedding clean up is a bitch lol

@motelsonthemoon: You know your party was a success when you’re still cleaning up the mess from the night before! #Success #YouAREDoingItRight

@LadyDragonBorn: hope you choke on your dinner old man! Your time will come! The north will never forget!

Death by choking is too kind a way for him to go.

@brandirose07: Worst part of Red Wedding? No wedding sex. Poor Edmure.

@motelsonthemoon: WHAT?! Edmure didn’t even get to have sex?! #WORSTNIGHTEVER

‏@mherr1979: The Blackfish LIVES!

@JaffaCakeQueen: Of course the Blackfish escaped. He’s the Blackfish.

@deefalc: Heck yes Blackfish escaping like a baller

@jflotv: DIEEEEE Walder Frey!

@cam_diesel: Roose Bolton is about to kill Walder Frey. Watch.

Still waiting, Cam-deezy.

Segue from there to another meal, where the newly-christened Ramsay Snow continues to taunt Theon in a most peculiar way.

@BeautyBrienne: OH MY GOD. OH. MY. GOD. WHAT IS HE EATING.

@djdenuk: Please tell me he is not eating Lil Theon

Pork sausage!

@strayney: Bamaton is Mordiore’s son??? I can’t believe this fucking show.

wat

@motelsonthemoon: RAMSAY BB! What, he’s hot.

@BigDamnHerosSir: “My mother taught me not to throw stones at cripples… but my father taught me, aim for their heads!”

@RedHeadFashion: Iwan Rheon is just brilliant. Creepily, psychoticly brilliant

@NoOptimism: The Bastard is played brilliantly. Absolute lunatic.

@deefalc: And ya’ll thought Joffrey was bad!

@beckytopol: The way Ramsay touches Theon’s throat is just…particularly distressing. Very gentle, yet entirely invasive.

‏@ohmaegan: EVERYTHING MAKES SENSE NOW.

@SA_Larsen: Game. Game. Game.

@PatJD: Is it wrong that Ramsay Snow has become my favorite character this season?

@DrStrangeMD: Can’t tell if this dude is just crazy or has an S&M obsession with Theon. Betches be crazy.

Allow me to direct you to Tumblr, ser, where every Ramsay/Theon slashfic has probably been posted (and re-blogged with accompanying pictures).

Allow me to also direct you to Tumblr for the cray betches. One-stop shopping at its finest!

@JillBidenVeep: Winter is coming, but Theon Greyjoy isn’t. Heyooo.

@amandaEdankwa: Some times I feel sorry for theon, then I remember what he did and think… Naaaaaa

@Gregwithoneg: Alfie Allen has got to be looking forward to season 4, things can only get better from here surely?

@BigDamnHerosSir: Man, even my hatred of Theon can’t survive this mental/physical torture. I just feel so horrible for him.

@BeautyBrienne: I want to hug Theon now too. Son of a bitch.

@RafalcaRomney: SPOILER ALERT: Edward Snowden is a bannerman for House Frey. #NSA

Well then he would be Edward Riverden, technically.

@NiceQueenCersei: Ramsay is rebranding Theon. By force.

@YgrittetheWild: WHAT IS YOUR NAME?! Kunta Kinte! Oh wait…

There was a bit of a Roots callback there, huh! Where’s Geordi La Forge when you need ‘im?

@LadyDragonBorn: reek……..REEK!!!!!!

@HarleyHorcrux: YOU REEK

@AngryGoTFan: REEK REEK IT RHYMES WITH MEAT?! NO IT DOESNT #NOTATALL #NOONEUNDERSTAAANDS

@motelsonthemoon: KISS KISS KISS KISS KISS KISS KISS KISS KISS

Thramsay shippers, ladies and gentlemen.

@GeoffLloyd: Anyone fancy knocking up a loop of the first bit of Eminem’s ‘My Name Is’, splicing in Theon saying ‘Reek’?

That should happen.

@thronecast: “Bad week. Don’t want to talk about it.” – Theon’s diary

Pretty much.

Back at the Wall, Bran and his sleeping crew are awakened by…

@motelsonthemoon: SAMWELL TARLY! SAMWELL TARLY! lka;lasjf;wfj;aesfjawjf ;iaj ae;fi a;fi aeofiu apofhqagq3 9 #creys

@beckytopol: Major point in favor of Sam Tarly: NOT the Rat Cook

@becca_diane11: Not that many people have giant direwolves as pets Bran…dead give away

@JessicaBore: Awwww Bran and Sam :’)

@jennifersimas: SAMMMM AND BRAN MY LIFE IS COMPLETE

@deefalc: Hodor’s grin just made the season hahah

@darastar: Best! #happyhodor #hodor

I read it as more “bashful Hodor,” but sure, he seemed happy!

@brynrich: My dream job is to write for Hodor on Game of Thrones.

@motelsonthemoon: I AM LOVING ALL THE BRAN THIS EPISODE GUYS!

We soar over to the Iron Islands, where w—

@lisasaputo: Iron Islands, boring!!!

Sorry.

We soar over to the Iron Islands, where we haven’t been all season!

@aerynsunx: OMG! The Greyjoys. I have no words.

@MercifulMalacai: FINALLY the Greyjoys….. ive only been waiting all season…..

@deefalc: WHATS IN THE BOX!? WHATS IN THE BOX!?

@BreakingBrebner: Oh ok he didn’t eat Theon’s dick, he just mailed to his Dad #NotQuiteAsWeird #StillPrettyFuckingWeird

@qeeerm: YOOOO IS HIS DICK IN THE BOX ? LMAOOOO!

It was! And it spawned about 200 of these, all in a row:

@HotForStefan: *sings Dick in a Box in my JT voice*

@YgrittetheWild: It’s a dick in a box~

@SDKacho: Cue Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg singing #DinABox

@ChynnaHall: Ramsay Snow must be a big fan of The Lonely Island. #DickInABox

@Lidersindical: Dick in a box joke to a new level.

@RoryAlbanese: Was expecting to see a lot more “dick in a box” tweets. Maybe twitter has matured.

Twitter has not matured! Bite your tongue! They were there. You had but to look. But if you don’t believe me, believe Iwan Rheon:

@iwanrheon: It’s a dick in a box! #GoT

Basically canon now.

@becca_diane11: Oh so it’s like a Theon jigsaw puzzle for Greyjoy family game night?

@msclaudia95: Game of thrones is one of the most gruesome shows I’ve ever seen but yet I still like it.

@lynfor: Balon Greyjoy and Walder Frey should get together, they’d make pleasant company. :/

@MaesterPycelle: And Daddy Greyjoy is one cold bastard. But not in a sexy Tywinning way.

#Tywinning

So Yara basically tells her father to eff off…

@vtress29: I’m loving Theon’s sis right now. Woman power.

@motelsonthemoon: ASHA SIGHTING! MY WARRIOR QUEEN! <3 <3

@TaTasAndWine: Asha for Iron Throne. With Hodor as King.

@irican1120: Asha loves her brother Theon more than their father loves Theon. Craziness! Asha <3

Yara, people! She’s a pirate! It fits! Yarrrrraaa!

But yes. I want to see Yara vs. Ramsay! (Hashtag: fanfic)

@annejhobson: I’m loving Yara. Kick ass, baby.

@aerynsunx: I don’t think Theon’s worth it, but Yara just became my hero.

Here’s to hoping Yara gets some meaty material to work with next season!

Back at the Wall, Sam and Bran say farewell…

@motelsonthemoon: Bran is on a mission from god.

@Simmo1107: Hey Sam, is that valaryian steel in your pocket or you just happy to be a step father for an incestuous child?

Dragonglass, bro. Pay attention!

@shortcomp: Thinking Bran stark is a little Frodo-ish in this eposode of #gameofthrones

@missasare: So the fatty bom bom had more white walker killer things. Whoop woop!

Nutshell.

@YgrittetheWild: Hodor would say “Shiny” if he could.

@HipHoptoSports: Damn, need a refill in the middle of the show. Straight it is… Drunker than Tryion

Necessary tbh

Over at Dragonstone, Ser Davos Seaworth gets to know Gendry…

@joytotheworld_: Woooo Gendry is so fine

@becca_diane11: And again HBO where is shirtless Gendry….I thought we discussed this…#anotherletteriscoming

@aerynsunx: Aw, Davos and Gendry bonding–in prison–over their miserable upbringings. Total bromance happening.

@NiceQueenCersei: Big words. No clothes. Yep thats Melisandre alright.

@beckytopol: Gendry’s logic: “She was all…naked and…articulate!” Where did he get Firefly DVDs?

@becca_diane11: “Big words no clothes” that’s House HBO’s words right?!?

Becca wins the internet.

@starkalypse: This Gendry/Davos scene is everything #teamdragonstone

@thisismydesignn: I still can’t believe that was supposed to be Gendry’s first time.

@DrStrangeMD: Gendry… Your life sucks, dood.

Speaking of Flea Bottom, we then head back down at King’s Landing, where Varys meets with Shae…

@NiceQueenCersei: Oh look. Its Shae the funny whore. And Varys the funny spider.

@BigDamnHerosSir: Show Shae is so much damn better than Book Shae

@BeautyBrienne: So Varys is that friend you had in 6th grade who would break up with your boyfriend for you.

@jax1125: Varys basically said “you can’t turn a ho into a housewife.”

‏@beckytopol: Runnn, Shae. Run away and never return.

@CarrieAnnRyan: Oh Shae. Le sigh.

@aerynsunx: Nooooo, Shae! Whenever somebody doesn’t take advice on this show, they are DOOOMED.

That and “We’ll talk more about it when I return.”

@heyjdey: SMH at Shae- girl you should’ve taken those diamonds! #takethemoneyandrun

@HistrionicSpock: Ok. Lord Varys is officially my favorite. I hope he doesn’t turn out to be a jackass

@c_jas: I like how Varis is coming across in the series #gameofthrones – nicely complex

Varys is Varys, and Conleth Hill continues to embody him with aplomb!

Meanwhile, Tyrion drinks with Podrick…

@NikkiCalli: “It’s not easy being drunk all the time. Everyone would do it if it was easy.”

Speaking of drunks…

@sarahmarie1921: Cersei and her wine #Otp5eva

‏@beckytopol: In that moment, Pod was prob the first person all season to be glad to see Cersei.

@NoOptimism: Did that bitch just dismiss Pod?! He’d wreck your vagina, Cersei.

Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think “wrecking” is what he does.

@chelsea_blagger: Cersei/Tyrion word play lannister sibling bonding at its finest.

@JoeFerrara5: “Jolly little fellow”

@thronecast: Does anyone believe that Joffrey was a cute baby? ANYONE? *tumbleweed*

@ASepiol: I believe in dragons, white walkers and the God of Light, but I don’t believe that Joffrey was a sweet baby.

Right?!

@ALI_MU11: @Dreamland000 وصفك بليغ وجميل لأفضل مسلسل تابعته .. اتمنى لو يستمر على هذا النهج

Right?!

Back in the Riverlands, Arya and the Hound come across a group of (fast traveling) Frey men…

@beckytopol: Ah, Arya’s dead eyes have lighted upon a Frey banner…

@becca_diane11: Man Arya can pull off sad/innocent little girl way too well

@lesthetique: Arya is going to lose it…. 5..4..3..2..1

And she did. And Twitter exploded.

@TooBadDiane: Fuck yes Arya.

@TicketChris: Arya!!!!!!

@MikeJoooones: HELL YES ARYA!!!!!

@YgrittetheWild: YASSSSSSSS ARYA WITH THE BLOOD AND STABBITY GOODNESS!

@WiC_Fury: I should probably be worried by how happy it makes me to watch Arya stab people.

@HarleyHorcrux: WHERE’S NEEDLE?! #NOONEUNDERSTAAANDS

Polliver kept it back in season 2.

I’m sure we’ll never see him again.

@Jenny_jenjenn: Damnnnnnnn

@AngryGoTFan: ANOTHER SCENE THATS A YEAR LATE ARYA #NOONEUNDERSTAAANDS

@AyBayBates: #GameOfThrones what the eff

@inkasrain: And Arya becomes the face of death.

@starsinmyfro: Arya was playing no roles. Fuck yeah.

@YoWorkHard: Arya just went straight goon status

@jkozal: If you didn’t stand and cheer when Arya stabbed that Frey soldier in the neck, then I have nothing to say to you.

What if I stayed sitting but pumped my fist?

Hello?

Oh. I see what you did there.

@TheBrinz: Idea for Spinoff: Arya and Ygritte roaming through Westeros killing everything that moves.

What, with no Hound?? Man, invite Yara at least, if you’re going all-girl. Hm, this should be a foursome…

@escoffreak: I love Arya! That was the best scene ever

@SultanSarcasm: Arya Stark, you are my spirit animal. I approve your homicidal rage. #arya #housestark

@Mandy_Mouse: The more angry Arya gets, the more exciting the show becomes.

@feellikepdiddy: VALAR MORGHULIS BETCHES. #arya

@heyjulieann: VALAR MORGHULIS, FUCKER

@jennifersimas: YESSSSSSSSSS VAHLAR MOGHOULIS I CAN’T SPELL IM TO EXCITED

@paularogo: She killed her first man. Poor thing! And she called for HIM!

@isitis: Aria went children of the corn… Like I’m seriously O_o — if Sansa the kindness, Aria is the vengeance

@AliciaCarper: Arya is going to be scary when she grows up. If she grows up.

@thejeffbehrens: Somehow I became a fan of the Hound.

@BigDamnHerosSir: The genius of #GameOfThrones is how much I love the characters that I know I shouldn’t love

@Ian_Percy: I really like the hound, he cracks me up

A laff riot, our Hound.

@chessrulz5: Arya and The Hound possibly just became my favorite storyline.

@TheDancingGamer: Arya & the Hound are sort of funny together, in their own murderous way.

@JennRoseFX: I swear I can watch this Hound/Arya scene a thousand, thousand times. I love it so…

@quciferskittles: SANDOR AND ARYA SPECIAL OPS TEAM

The Houndrya partnership for next season looks solid.

Props to both Rory McCann and Maisie Williams. I think this episode was strongest for Maisie so far this year. And while it may not have been McCann’s strongest episode this season (you could argue “Kissed By Fire” or even “Valar Morghulis”)… it has certainly been his best season.

So… the story goes north and we finally catch up with Jon Snow.

So does Ygritte.

The story then goes south. For him. Probably for her too. (Harington and Lesley killin’ it!)

@feellikepdiddy: Fleeing from danger and he still stops to take a bath. #JonSnow

@BigDamnHerosSir: Ygritte: Stage 5 clinger

@sarahmarie1921: SHOOT THE ARROW SHOOT SHOOT SHOOT

She shot, shot, shot!

@sarahmarie1921: Back? Close enough I guess.

@sarahmarie1921: YES LEG! kja;lfjae;f apofij

Sarah Marie, ladies and gentlemen. This is what happens when you ban @motelsonthemoon, Twitter. #nerdrage

@becca_diane11: Oh holy shit she totally shot him…worst break up ever

@amarettosaurus: Effective way to end a relationship

@MattRuterbories: That’s why you don’t cross Ygritte

@kissed_by_fire: Ygritte = the best.

‏@ramensparkles: JON ❄❄❄❄❄❄❄

JON SNUUUUU.

@brandirose07: Like father, like bastard. Took an arrow to the knee.

@HoganMcLaughlin: Everyone’s getting the 3-arrow Boromir treatment these days

@AngryGoTFan: YGRITTE I UHHHHHHHHHHHH UHHHHHHHHH UHHHHH #SNOW #NOONEUNDERSTAAANDS

@leighannecahill: Damn it, Kit. I hate your stupid face #sobs

@AngryGoTFan: YGRITTE I UHHHHHHHHH HOME UHHHHHHHHHH #SNOWQUOTES #NOONEUNDERSTAAANDS

@JillBidenVeep: Ygritte! Why couldn’t you have just written a song about it like Taylor Swift!

@tkeith1106: all I know is if I ever have a break up like Jon & Ygritte then i’m doing something right

@scottEweinberg: Trying to tweet humor during Game of Thrones is like trying to recite spoken-word poetry during a department store riot.

And yet some people are remarkably good at it!

@patzdk: “I love Game of Thrones because I hate happiness.” Es taaaaaaan

@LaylaM1: I really hate Ygritte. You don’t fucking shoot an arrow in someone you claim to love just because he wants to go home!

@BigDamnHerosSir: Rose Leslie. You’re wonderful.

@JayTrishula: Ygritte you heinous mountain slore, how dare you shoot those arrows!!!!!

I’m going to make “heinous mountain slore” my new go-to insult.

So Sam has finally arrived back at Castle Black! He has a Very Special introduction to make with Gilly and…

@eriktopham: Maester Eamon!

@SDKacho: Maester Aemon!!!

Sorry, Topham. Kacho wins the Targaryen Maester Spelling Bee.

@YgrittetheWild: I’m so happy to see Maester Aemon again.

@sarahmarie1921: Does Aemon know how long it takes to make a baby? They were only gone like 6 months right?! Even less

@EricaTheMad: I take it back. My heart holds undying love for Samwell Tarly. He’s a wizard #NotAtAllIcky

@IAmSteamgirl: God I love you Sam.

@MikeRosenzweig: LORD COMMANDER TARLY MOTHER FUCKERS

@aerynsunx: And Sam’s heart grew three sizes that day. Sam the Courageous, should be his new name. So proud.

@TaTasAndWine: Samwell Tarly and Gilly. Proof that happiness exists.

Totally shipping Sam/Gilly. (Silly?). #FPM

Back at Dragonstone, Davos continues his Reading Rainbow with Shireen…

‏@sarahmarie1921: SHIREEN BB!

@GeophMccarthy: Is the little girl they keep locked up a half lizard or something? Did I miss it?

@jennifersimas: DAVOS IS MY FAVVVVVVV

@eriktopham: First the guy with no legs and now “nigit”. That’s 2 holy grail shoutouts this episode.

And I was tempted to call Maester Aemon “The Old Man From Scene 24.”

@AlyssaRosenberg: Will someone please publish hardcover editions of all of Shireen’s books, please?

@sarahmarie1921: The nigg…NIGHT NIGHT. #DavosSecretRacist

I’m going to catch hell just for posting that. Thanks.

So Davos takes the letter to Stannis…

@BigDamnHerosSir: Whenever I see Stannis’ giant Risk board, I just want to fuck on it. You started it, Melisandre

@araiei: Stannis shaved. He looks fresh.

He will always be Sexy Thomas Jefferson to me.

@Glamorous26: Gentry’s like Harry Potter now? “The boy must die.” Hmmm

@swordofice: Team Davos Seaworth. He’s clearly the one with most sense #TheOnionKnight

@BigDamnHerosSir: Stannis, you’re lucky you were once Thomas Jefferson. Otherwise I’d hate you more than Joffrey #selfrighteousprick

Right?!

Davos then pays a visit to Gendry…

@Ravinaaaa_: I love Gendry

What, no love for Hot Pie any more?

@HoganMcLaughlin: Davos X Gendry #BroTP

@feellikepdiddy: So can we call Gendry “Gendric Stormwaters” then? #bookreaderproblems

@ramblingmuse: Please don’t kill this boy either. Dammit. Spare a few good men!

@heyjulieann: DAVOS GET TO SMUGGLIN’

@ErinMorelli: “You know how to swim?” “No” “Don’t fall out”… Life lessons from Davos

@LaPauliDice: Gendry: “Row, row, row this boat, keep me off the flames…”

@BeautyBrienne: FLoat Gendry! Float for your life!

I LOL’d.

Davos is brought before Stannis. We pretty much know he’s screwed.

@Punkteee: I feel bad for not liking Davos before. #FleaBottomFTW #PleaseDontDieDavos

@cheesybones: “He’s right” Davos’ face after she said that was priceless

@aerynsunx: Ha! Finally, Ser Davos and Melisandre are on the same page. And Stannis backs off. Ser Davos will live!

@becca_diane11: Or maybe she can see into GRRM’s mind! Or The Lord of Light is GRRM! #crazytheories

@s_smulkstys: Melisandre is the shit. She my girl.

@Punkteee: Camp Baratheon is against the white walkers? Some people have their priorities straight. Too bad Stannis is still an ass.

@heyjulieann: STANNIS IS GOING TO THE WALL, BITCHES.

Seems that way!

Speaking of, Jon also arrives at Castle Black, three arrows richer.

@aerynsunx: First Jon Snow’s pretty face is scarred, now his pretty body is all shot up with arrows. Thanks for ruining him, Ygritte.

@feellikepdiddy: Jon Snow and Boromir can discuss being shot through with arrows #crossovertweet

@becca_diane11: And Pip is back!!! Love that guy!!

@aerynsunx: Sam! Pip! Jon! Reunion party tonight at Castle Black!

@MercifulMalacai: PIP SIGHTING

It’s Pyp! Short for Pypar. But yes, good to see Josef Altin again.

@heyjulieann: nobody loves jon snow more than samwell tarly

@NinaDance09: WHERE THE FUCK IS JAIME IN THIS EPISODE?

Funny you should ask…

Back at King’s Landing, Jaime and Brienne finally arrive, accompanied by Qyburn!

@TaTasAndWine: Hmm. Grey Wind’s head. Gendry’s abs. Robb’s thighs. Oh Qyburn! I have a job for you!

@sarahmarie1921: Welcome home Jaime Lannister…NO ONE RECOGNIZES YOU! Might be the lack of hand that is misleading everybody

@feellikepdiddy: Gotta hand it to Jaime, that was one hell of an entrance

THE PUNS ARE STILL COMING. I lub it.

@BlaireLovesTV: JAIME AND BRIENNE FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY

Brienne had like… no lines.

But that’s fine. BRIENNE NEEDS NO LINES TO BE AWESOME.

Jaime then leaves Brienne (boo!) and goes to reunite with Cersei (yay!).

(Cersei doesn’t look precisely thrilled, either.)

@MercifulMalacai: Cersei lookin all pretty when she’s by herself and not tormenting ppl

@Eyesor1e: WHAT THE HELL kind of seashell is that #ninjastarshell figures cersei would have the deadly looking 1

@brandirose07: “How is he gonna grab my boobs or ass NOW? damnit.” #cersei

Well, the OR is still in play. It’s the AND that’s off the table now.

@Dinkologist: Twincest started all these problems.

@BNallaMilaya: Jamie totally just pulled a Flynn Rider

I didn’t see it. But I may need a re-watch of Tangled.

@tinababy09: Jamie’s evolution is one of the reasons I love this story.

@jennifersimas: Where’s tommen man

@AngryGoTFan: WHERE IS TOMMEN?!!?!??!?!!?!?!?!?!?! #NOONEUNDERSTAAANDS

At least Myrcella got her name dropped. Tommen’s like… long gone and forgotten.

And finally, across the Narrow Sea, we catch up with Daenerys, the new conquerer of—

@irican1120: Daenerys is now Queen of Mareen. Let the games Begin!

No, man. Yunkai. Come on now.

@deefalc: Dany rocking a pretty rad pantsuit

@BigDamnHerosSir: Hey, person who designs Dany’s clothes… I would like her blue dress plus leather pieces, and her boots. Please.

@heyjulieann: ‘sup daario sexharis

@thatdude_314: Dragons just sittin therr like bawses!!!

@ChivalrousNerd: KHALEESI!!!!!! All hail the Mother of Dragons and sister girl standing behind her is sexy too

@IfIWereMagneto: Missandei, wae you so pretty?

‘Tis her gift… and her curse.

@SDKacho: Jorah: since you’ve been friendzoned by Dany, I volunteer to be your lover now.

@becca_diane11: Oh and Dany saves some slaves…blah blah blah

@beckytopol: MHYSA MHYSA #MHYSA !!!!

@BitchJustChill: Damn Daenerys

@bridgethelene: #Calisi is the Olsen Twin of #gameofthrones #cult #obsession

@iamjarodgreen: I’d call Khaleesi my #Mhysa

@Jbridgeman12: Wow wow wow dany!!!!!!!!

@ComfyChairs: If Dany becomes any more popular with the common people she’s gonna end up dead in a Parisian road tunnel

@BradSabbath: Did this just become the Lion King?

@SeleemB: That’s some lion king shit!

@djolder: Thank white lady jesus all the slaves are free!

@ItsDanSheehan: Daenerys Targaryen is basically being a sexy Abe Lincoln.

That’s almost as cool as Stephen Dillane, who plays Sexy Thomas Jeffers—wait, I used that already.

(It’s hard not to dip into the STJ well too often.)

@Soulrific: Dany is Moses.

LET MAH PEOPLE GOOOOOOOOOOOO~

And… that’s it for this season!

@Galdemsuga: Slow and steady wins the race, ma girl Khaleesi coming for that ass! And her weave boom!

Nappy ass weave tbh

@sarahmarie1921: Hey at least the Lannisters get a happy ending amirite?!

RIGHT?!

So overall thoughts…?

@AngieSmileyyy: @GameOfThrones Finale was EPIC!! THANK YOU!!!!! :’)

‏@DaVida_Loca: Not a bad season finale…..I didn’t freak out lol

Not sure if that’s a plus or minus.

@bryangreenberg: Sad that the #GameOfThrones season is over. On the bright side I don’t have to see that dude get tortured every week.

@thetvpusher: On the plus side, REEK. (It rhymes with geek.)

@ywain1369: Well, talk about a HUGE disappointment after last weeks holy shit moment…

@JuicyGigolo: I hope the House of Gryffindor, or whatever, survived on #GameOfThrones #IveNeverSeenTheShowBefore

Good news, everyone! Gryffindor did survive! AND they were awarded bonus points at the expense of House Slytherin, thereby taking the throne simply because Westeros has a natural aversion to Slytherin winning anything. Because all the kids in Slytherin are evil, clearly.

Thus ended what was arguably the best season of Game of Thrones yet. In my opinion it was the best.

But, oh, we still have season 4 ahead. And that one could even top this.

Guess we’ll see! Nine months to go! Start that countdown clock, Winterphil!

@ricodeebababa: I’m pissed about the #got finale. No one died and so many were supposed to. They should have finished #StormOfSwords

Hmm, someone doesn’t read the internet….

@Moira_Eden: #gameofthrones season 3 has ended and now my life is over! #crying\\

@puyple: Ready to cryogenically freeze myself until next year’s #GameOfThrones

@JonSnowBastrd: Ten months we have to wait…. The Red Wedding was less cruel

@GhettoAtheist: I’ll be deactivating until season 4.

A final word from Esme Bianco:

@esmebianco: Nicely done @GameOfThrones @HBO Until next season….my watch begins!

We’ll be watching with you, o’ queen of temptation and sexposition!

Thoughts on next season?

@MicOC25: Feed Joffrey to the wights! #whenwillthatprickdie #excitedtoseehisdeathscene

@isitis: I hope the Blackfish guts Frey…

@coldinthesoul: Can we just have an hour of Hodor yelling down a hole?

@bernzilla: I can’t wait until season 9 when Daenerys finally makes it to King’s Landing.

I LOL’d.

@ALatin5: if the dragon lady and her giant army don’t win the throne, it’s horseshit. she has fucking dragons.

Preach.

@Nurshaun: Brace yourself Lannisters, the Martells are coming! Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken.

And the Martelliest Martell of them all: Oberyn “The Red Viper.”

Can’t wait for casting news!

Please give us Dorne and an awesome Red Viper!

Lastly… this ISN’T the last Twitter post of the year!

In a month or so, I, the fatuous FaBio, am going to do a Game of Thrones: Season 1 Episode 1 RE-WATCH Twitter post! I’m going to gather to my (figurative) side a number of your favorite (and perhaps not-so-favorite) Tweeters for my Game of Thrones Re-Watch Re-Tweet Extravaganza, and I will of course do a post for it, right here at Winter-is-Coming.net! Since I can’t very well have 200 different All-Star Tweeters stuffed into one post, the Extravaganza (or GoTRWRTE) will be invitation-only. However, since there are people I might forget in the rush of it all, please don’t be shy about submitting your name for the GoTRWRTE here, or to me on Twitter at @Axechucker.

ADDITIONALLY… I may be doing part of this on video for my cohorts over at TVEquals.com (though only the barest shred of Tweets will make it onto the on-camera edition), so if you object to having your tweets read aloud (with the additional “bonus” of me doing it in a Scooby Doo voice), then don’t sign up for it.

I can’t be held responsible for how stupid I make you sound, as I already sound pretty damned stupid to start with!

So that’s it! This year was a blast; BEST SEASON YET! See you all soon… and stay tweety!

    My favourite part of Wednesdays–thanks so much for all of the hard work, FaB! It’s been brilliant, and I’m looking forward to the re-watch Twit-fest!

    The stand-outs this week:

    @JuniorGeneral: On Father’s Day remember to thank you father for not being Tywin Lannister.

    @YgrittetheWild: Hodor would say “Shiny” if he could.

    @SultanSarcasm: Arya Stark, you are my spirit animal. I approve your homicidal rage. #arya #housestark

    @BigDamnHerosSir: Ygritte: Stage 5 clinger

    @aerynsunx: First Jon Snow’s pretty face is scarred, now his pretty body is all shot up with arrows. Thanks for ruining him, Ygritte.

    I don’t know why, but reading the three of these together really brought out the laughs:

    @LaylaM1: I really hate Ygritte. You don’t fucking shoot an arrow in someone you claim to love just because he wants to go home!

    @BigDamnHerosSir: Rose Leslie. You’re wonderful.

    @JayTrishula: Ygritte you heinous mountain slore, how dare you shoot those arrows!!!!!

    (Annnd just realised that nearly all of these were about the same thing. Even my sense of humour has a favourite storyline, apparently!)

    Rumor floating around on Reddit (…I know, I know…) that says a costume designer met with the “higher-ups” for the show, so they could tell her that her contract has been renewed for two additional seasons and a movie. This doesn’t ring true for a number of reasons, but I figured if anyone could get some kind of confirmation, it’d have to be somebody here.

    Lots of standard SAG contracts are for 5 years, which is why lots of shows over the years change significantly at the 5 year mark. I had a friend just this past week predict that GoT would run for 5 seasons and then switch to movies for just this reason.

    Y’know, thanks to Troy and Abed, I’ve been wondering whether GoT could go “7 seasons and a film” for a little while now. Think about it. If the end of Spring is epic (like Epic… like FREAKING Epic) maybe it’d be cool to do it on a major motion picture budget rather than a TV budget.

    Like the physical beauty you get in the LOTR films… Which you need to see on a big screen.

    So I’m digging the concept.

    Posted June 13, 2013 at 1:41 am | Permalink

    Well, there were long-running rumors of a Rome movie and a Deadwood movie, so maybe it could happen. That would actually be pretty cool, as long as they don’t cut the series short. I’d like at least 7 seasons, then a movie.

    But honestly, all I ever hoped for was between 1-3 seasons. Now we have that, anything extra is a bonus IMO.

    And I agree with FaB that Season 3 was the best yet. And all controversy aside, I think this Twitter recap shows what a great episode this was. Not as shocking a finale, no, but a very nice wrapping-up.

    And lastly, I’m SO DOWN with some non-canon Yara/Ramsay story line. I was so confused when that scene happened, but I was also like “FUCK YES!”

  23. Khal-A-Bunga
    Posted June 13, 2013 at 1:52 am | Permalink

    Your contract dates are a little off. Most of the main cast likely signed six year contract agreements (we know for a fact that Liam Cunningham did), that all likely included a one season extension clause (under the terms of which, they can be brought back for another season without costing the production too much extra money). After the seventh season of any show, under SAG regulations, the contracts of the actors must be re-negotiated. That’s why some shows become too cost prohibitive to continue after that time, and this is also likely why the producer Frank Doelger stated the show would continue for “at least seven seasons”. I believe D&D have stated that they envision this show as one long ’80 hour movie’, so I think that they’ve thought this out already and have figured that they can tell the whole thing in that amount of time. I’ll stick with that.

    I reckon they should get straight into it. With pretty much all the other storylines they have to be more careful… Bran’s not in the Meereenese knot, so they can’t screw up anything by him getting to Meereen too early/late as it could with other people.

    Otherwise he just doesn’t have anything much to do…

    This is true except presuming that Bran reaches Bloodraven by the end of the fourth season, in the fifth and sixth seasons he will have nothing to do, because whatever effect he winds up having on the narrative, he will be too far ahead of the rest.

I will Tweet you @Axechucker that I’m interested.

    @aerynsunx: First Jon Snow’s pretty face is scarred, now his pretty body is all shot up with arrows. Thanks for ruining him, Ygritte.

    First, a shout out to the Farscape reference in the Twitter name. Holla to all my fellow Scapers out there! When I grow up I want to be just like Aeryn Sun (or Arya, same difference). Second, scars make a man hotter–they don’t ruin him #MaybeItsJustMe #RoughRiders

    @djolder: Thank white lady jesus all the slaves are free!

    Daaaaaaaaammmmmmnnnnnn, that’s harsh (but I was thinking the same thing! Waddup with all those brown faces? Where’s the crowd va-riuh-tay from the books?! /gratuitous Cartman reference)

    @NoOptimism: Did that bitch just dismiss Pod?! He’d wreck your vagina, Cersei.

    FaBio: Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think “wrecking” is what he does.

    FaBs, I think @NoOptimism meant that Pod would spoil Cersie for all other Lannisters.

    Google Translate says that “وصفك بليغ وجميل لأفضل مسلسل تابعته .. اتمنى لو يستمر على هذا النهج” is Arabic for “Your description eloquent and beautiful series followed the better .. I wish I will continue with this approach” by which (having some knowledge of the Arabs and their language) I’m guessing @ALI_MU11 meant, “F*ck yeah! Damn right! Couldn’t have said it better myself.”

    @thejeffbehrens: Somehow I became a fan of the Hound.

    I’m assuming this not to be confused with the “Sloar” that appeared during the Third Reconciliation of the Last of the Meketrex Supplicants.

    Khal-A-Bunga,

    Thanks for that clarification re: the “seven year” situation. It makes sense. Even though the show is cast with almost all British actors, GOT is a U.S. production and therefore would be under the SAG rules, correct? Anyone under contract would have to hold a SAG card?

    Yes! Farscape, FTW. *high five* Aeryn Sun was one of my absolute favorite characters.

    I do like scars. I just prefer Jon Snuuuh without them. lol

    Jaime’s right hand:
    Funny article as always, but no tweets saying “Bran’s my nigga!” or “that nigga is crazy”? Either nobody tweeted such tweets, which I find hard to believe or you guys gave in to a certain overly sensitive individual. If it’s the latter, you guys are still cool and I’m not angry, just disappointed that this Uncle To… I mean, Lamar bullied you guys on what tweets you should put up.

    You pointing the finger at me and suggest that I’m an Uncle Tom!?! You’re the one who demeans our race that is if you real are black like you said, with you freely using that word and suggesting others to use it just to trivialize it. Maybe you’re ashamed of being black that’s why you don’t think it’s big deal. You know I recently watched Django Unchained, which I didn’t like for obvious reasons and there was a character who Samuel L. Jackson plays. Every time you post here, you remind me of him.

    To the people who works on this website. Go ahead and use the n-word for next year’s twitter articles at your leisure. I don’t care as I’m not going to visit this website anymore. It’s a pity because I’ve been going to this site since the early days. I doubt you’ll care since you have fine individuals like Jaime’s right hand to type that word with you people. You can use him as your poster boy and justify your reason to use the n-word on this site.

    Winter Is Coming,

    I don’t know if I would consider a black man calling another black man “nigga”, a personal attack. It’s funny how Lamar gets to say that I’m ” ashamed of being black” when in fact, it’s the total opposite. I’m not angry at you guys, it’s your website so your rules. But I am disappointed that you’re letting this guy wrap his little finger (no pun intended) around you guys. I hope that you’re not going to change on what to put in when it comes to next year’s twitter reactions articles.

    Jaime’s right hand,

    No one is wrapped around anyone’s finger, trust me. You called Lamar things worse than just “nigga”; you used some very racially-charged insults against him, which I’m not going to repeat. Suffice it to say, you are lucky you haven’t been banned. Having a dissenting opinion is fine, but let’s be respectful of our fellow fans.

  72. Jaime's right hand
    Posted June 20, 2013 at 4:25 am | Permalink

    Winter Is Coming,
    Being banned for a little thing I did seems extreme. I didn’t do anything that’s heinous to deserve it. If I recall, I call him “black hitler”. If you think about that, it’s just ridiculous not racially charged. Hitler, who want an all Aryan master race, having him to do with black people is just silly. Is it the “Uncle Tom” comment? You white people might see it another way, but between two black people when one called another “Uncle Tom”, it’s no different than a white person calling another “Benedict Arnold”. It’s not racial abuse. Anyway, I disagree that I racially abused Lamar, but I’m not going to argue any further, since you people are having this white guilt. You all have been bullied into feeling ashamed that you did something wrong to black people. I have seen this sort of thing many times and certain people take advantage of it in my lifetime.
