Game of Thrones ‘Fire and Blood’ Review

Game of Thrones ‘Fire and Blood’ Review  

Article by Javed Khan

There is more than meets the eye in this week’s installment of Game of Thrones, as we learn about a lot of violent events. Ned gets his head cut off, and we are showed how Illyn Payne makes a show out of it during a maddening crowd. When this happens, Sansa falls unconscious to the floor, and Arya has to be dragged away from the scene by Yoren.

Joff does not stop here the circus of violence and wants to see the bard that sang a tune unfavorable to his kingship, short of his tongue. He orders Ser Illyn to do it, who is more than happy to oblige. Also, Joff loves to torment Sansa, showing her Ned’s head stuck into a pike. He also tells her that she will become his wife, and that he will waste no time making her pregnant. Sansa gives a harsh reply and she is smacked across the face by a guard, since Joff does not consider worthy of his station to do it himself.

Littlefinger and Varys are plotting how to get the throne, but their blabbering seem more like gossip than real plans. They end up expressing their mutual appreciation for their clever ideas, but eventually, get back to their regular tasks. The conclusion is that it is better to operate from the shadows than being exposed on the throne. In the meantime, Arya cuts her hair, and gets in a team of recruits along with Yoren, pretending to be a boy. She is not phased out by others’ attempts to bully her and she responds in kind.

Catelyn and Robb learn about Ned’s beheading and their pain manifests differently. Catelyn does not shed a tear, but she is clearly in pain, while Robb wants to take it out on everybody. Eventually, he cries on her mother’s shoulder, and they promise they will save Sansa and Arya, and then revenge their dear father and husband’s death. After that, Catelyn confronts Jaime, who shamelessly hits on the widow. The woman shows her disgust at the man’s words.

Motivated by the murder, Robb’s men want to take action. A conversation about who of the southern nobles they should bow to in order to confront King Joffrey takes place, but Greatjohn makes quite a speech about how they should govern themselves, forgetting about bowing their heads to some nobles that do not know how to handle a sword. All kneel in front of Robb, naming him their uncrowned king.Jon decides to go with Rob in his quest of killing King Joffrey, but he is stopped in his journey by his mates. Jeor tries to convince him that their fate does not depend on who is king. In the meantime, they learn about what happens beyond the mysterious wall.

In another scene, Dany learns that her baby died from Jorah. The witch called Mirri walks in on them and tells Dany her baby was a monster. Dany’s baby death was caused by Mirri who wanted to wake Drogo from the dead. Dany cannot stand seeing the poor creature that is not dead, nor alive and she kills him with a pillow.

She also makes a funeral pyre for Drogo and even adds her own eggs to it. Jorah implores her to not burn herself alive, as well, and Dany promises she will protect the people that remained by her side. Mirri is finally tied to a pole, and Dany sets the pyre on fire. She also walks into the fire, but, when the smoke clears, she is alive and has several baby dragons resting on her shoulders.
