Did you think last week’s scene with Lady Olenna and Jaime Lannister was stirring and perfect? Well, it was, but Jaime isn’t quite done being emotionally annihilated. #sorrynotsorry

As the loot train from High Garden is heading back to King’s Landing, a strategy-impaired Danaerys flips the figurative war table and literally burns the motherfucker down. Lots of motherfuckers, Lannisters and Tarlys, to be exact. It was an epic turn of events that had me screaming “Dracarys” in my living room and my body physically shaking. Dany, Drogon and the Dothraki win this round of Game of Thrones. It was glorious and brutal.

Speaking of glorious and brutal, let’s talk about the Stark children.

Arya returns to Winterfell, and Sansa greets her in the crypt. They hug and the reunion is overwhelmingly satisfying. Still, the recognition between the sisters of what they have endured getting to this place hangs heavy.

It hits Arya hard when she sees Littlefinger is there and realizes the realpolitik Sansa is playing at. Sansa is unnerved by the reality of Arya’s kill list and her undeniably deadly fighting skills.

Bran’s cold indifference to the people that love him is cruel, except when he goes all magic Mafioso on Littlefinger. Baelish didn’t expect that. If chaos truly is a ladder, these kids are climbing.

Join us on this week’s episode as we fangirl out about one of the best episodes of Game of Thrones to date, the will-they-won’t-they incestual tension between Jon and Dany, and what’s going to happen to Jaime. Also…

  • White Walkers in a cave
  • Naath is a feminist destination
  • Dickon LOL
  • Spears and shields burn just as easily as human flesh
  • “Flee, you fool!”
  • RIP horsies #tear

We want to hear your thoughts!

What do you think Jamie’s fate is? Will Jon and Dany do it? What’s next for the Starks at Winterfell? What did Cersei hire the Golden Company for? And for the love of the old gods and new, what is Littlefinger smirking about?

Sound off in the comments and we will read them on the next show. Talk to you soon, nerds.
