did you read the westeros recap? they make a really good point that cat and robb's scene seemed to be written to be stacked against her. i haven't read the books but I think that makes sense. I think it's the same with Sansa scenes when she's on. idgi. sorry to be anon. on phone.

Hi Anon -no worries- love hearing what unspoiled viewers think! 

I’m no purist but I think Elio made a lot of solid points (Arya in Harrenhal, Talisa and Robb…yep!) in his analysis of the episode -as he often does…I’ll leave it at that- and this was one of them.

…the brief Robb and Catelyn sceen seemed stack against the Lady of Winterfell, since at no time is her fear that Jaime was going to be murdered brought up yet it was clear in the last episode that that was first and foremost in her mind when she decided to act. Karstark can hardly accuse her of treason when he was on the verge of committing that treason himself before Robb was present to be able to stop him.

How meta of D & D to stack everything against Cat!  Fate (GRRM) does it.  Fandom does it.  Reviewers do it.  Ignorant asshats do it in 140 characters on Twitter.  We still have a couple of episodes, though.  Sansa will have a role to play in the hell inside the Red Keep during Blackwater and from a recent interview with Madden (check the GoT cast spam tag for a link) there is another Robb and Cat scene that may prove to provide a tentative re-balance to their relationship and give them more of the trope-defying edges that make the characters sing…

Game of Thrones thoughts, Season Two, Episode Seven: “A Man Without Honor”


For my recap/review of Episode 17, please visit Rolling Stone.

13 . 05 . 2012


So my recap for Episode 16 is finally up.

I know it’s really late and you all might be over it by now, and it is pretty ragey and ranty so of course I don’t want to open old wounds for anyone with this past episode, but if you didn’t like the Sansa near rape scene or the death of Irri feel free to leave a comment. I’m sure they’ll see it, quite frankly. 

Never over it! D & D’s heads on spikes - nice touch!
