Sidney’s Game Guide – Unbowed Unbent Unbroken

Yeah so um….we probably should talk.

…oh.

Ok, so something happened on Game of Thrones that you are probably all curious about…there is no Hodor this season…oh and also Wedding’s can NEVER go well on Game of Thrones. So Sansa is once again being victim….or is she? Game of Thrones is no stranger to controversy, but this seemed to have caused quite a stir. Was this rape for shock value or does it further the story. I think this is a time will tell situation, but for everyone having issues with it please remember something: this show is NOT endorsing rape. They are showing what this world has come to for a woman. The point is it ISN’T right. Where was this outrage when Dany was given to Drogo by her brother for an army…he raped her on the wedding night to. Bad things happen on this show in many ways….but we owe it to the show, which has a great many strong female characters, to see if this is part of Sansa’s plan. I hope it is because the best shocks on this show come from a place that furthers the actual story, not our news feed the next day. Sansa is still the show’s best character.

The Most Awesome of Things

The King’s Landing stuff is soap opera with a major budget, but the actors are making the whole thing captivating. Lena Heady and Natalie Dormer going punch for punch is riveting and I cannot wait to see what happens with it. Also….it is SO great to have Grandmama Tyrell back with us.

The Good Stuff

Holy crap, that House of Black and White. The story might be seeming to stall, but getting to explore more of that set is a highlight of the season. It shows a great deal of the world off and takes us deeper down the mystery of magic in this world.

Tyrion and Jorah is fun because these two characters interacting is still so new and fresh. Glad they’ve added stakes to it because I feel it will really begin to push things along.

This is paining me to write because, as you know, Martell is my favorite house, but man was the Dorne stuff rough. The fight was clunky and considering the reputation of the Sand Snakes reputation leading up to this, they didn’t come across that way. Also, considering the name of this episode comes from their house words, they were barely in it.

Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken, in summation:

“Bravvos is where dead people are made…apparently. Tyrion and Jorah….bound by daddy issues. The Emmy for that set tho. Are Tyrion and Jorah on the Lost island. If Cersei employs the Bringers does that make her The First? If you don’t get that do you matter? Can I go live in Dorne…like….now. Yaaassssssssssssssss Queen of Thorns! If The Queen of Thorns says to stop writing…you stop. Sansa will straight up call out a side hoe and remind you who she is bitch!”

Ok well the show has now got to deliver in the most epic of ways, what will happen and to whom. This is coming to a head and it won’t be pretty by the end of it.

Keep geek.
