Game of Thrones Season 4 Scene of the Week: Not Tywin…Anyone But Tywin

tywin_lannister
The fourth season finale of GAME OF THRONES had a ton of amazing moments from Harryhausen-esque animated skeletons to Stannis riding to the rescue beyond The Wall to the epic battle between The Hound and Brienne…it was just an incredible episode of television. But nothing stood out more to me than the scene(s) where Tyrion exacted his revenge upon two of those who have wronged him the most gravely.

Game of Thrones Season 4 Scene of the Week: Giants on Mammoths!!!!!

Oliver "Olly" Queen?

Oliver “Olly” Queen?

There really isn’t much to explain about “Watchers On The Wall” except to say it was a big ass episode long battle reminiscent of the “Blackwater” episode from Season Two. And with that in mind I figured the best way to recap this ep was visually.

Michiel Huisman Is Determined To Ruin TV For Me

HUISMAN!!!!!!!

Have you ever been watching a TV show that you really liked yet there was just one character that you really hated with a passion played by an actor who just annoyed you completely and you wished he were not a part of the show? Well imagine if that actor were to bring the same acting style you absolutely loathe to show after show that you enjoy? Would you feel like there was a conspiracy going on to ruin TV for you specifically? Well, if so you would be a paranoid nutcase but never let it be said that I considered myself to be 100% sane because I think Michiel Huisman is out to destroy my enjoyment of TV by constantly popping up on shows I like.

Snoop Dogg & Seth Rogen Discuss Game of Thrones

Snoop’s English accent and the way he kept saying Petyr Baelish’s name just killed me.

Game of Thrones Season 4 Scene of the Week: Fly Lysa Fly

A good deal of stuff went down on this episode of GoT, titled “Mockingbird”, not the least of which is Arya adding to her body count while bonding with The Hound; The return of Hot Pie who helps point Brienne and Podrick in the right direction for finding the Stark sisters; The Mountain being awful; Dany bumping uglies with the flea market version of Daario; and Tyrion losing hope of having a champion for his trial by combat then getting a new champion in the form of Oberyn. But the scene that stood out the most to me happened at The Vale and featured the man whose personal sigil was the title of this episode: Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish.

Game of Thrones Season 4 Scene of the Week: Hodor Smash!

Don’t make Hodor angry. You wouldn’t like Hodor when he’s angry. Especially not if he is under the mental control of an angry crippled kid whose entire existence has been yanked away from him.

Game of Thrones Season 4 Scene of the Week: What The Heck Was That?

gotoath2
For the past 3 and some odd seasons of GAME OF THRONES there has been a subset of the George R.R. Martin books fandom who have taken to acting like smug asshats who wear their readership of the books ass a badge of honor that makes them better than the sad sacks who have only watched the TV show. They also love to go to anyplace that show watchers gather and drop spoilers all willy nilly…well, now those folks know how show watchers feel.

Game of Thrones Season 4 Scene of the Week: What Makes A Good King?

tytom01
For what was supposed to be a “catch your breath” episode after the glorious death of King Joffrey last week, Breaker of Chains providd some meaty moments. From Dany rolling into Mereen like she owned the place to Arya and The Hound rolling a poor single father for his cash to The Wildlings ransacking villages to Stannis’ Secret Small Council of Shireen & Davos coming up with an idea to get funding for their king to Littlefinger making his move. And I am not even going to touch that Jaime/Cersei scene with a ten foot pole. My favorite scene was the beginning of Tywin spending some quality time with his new favorite family member.

The Prime Suspects In The Righteous Regicide of Joffrey Baratheon

joffchoke
OK…enough time has passed and everyone with an Internet connection now knows that the evil boy-king Joffrey Baratheon was killed on this past Sunday’s episode of GAME OF THRONES. Now all attention turns to just whodunnit? Like any good murder mystery there are a ton of suspects so I have gone thorough the list to see who had cause to see Joff dead and the likelihood that they would actually do it. This is an adaptation so it’s quite possible Benioff & Weiss could throw us a curveball and change the identity of the culprit for the TV show which would be kinda cool.

To spare any stragglers being spoiled who have yet to see last night’s episode of GAME OF THRONES (and why the heck haven’t you watched it yet?) I will restrict all comments on my favorite scene of the second episode of this season, The Lion And The Rose, for after the jump.
