Re: 1.10 Game of Thrones - Fire and Blood
I think epis 9 and 10 were two of the best hours of television ever, equalling anything I can remember including the best of The Sopranos, Dexter, Deadwood, etc. There's already talk about multiple emmy nominations for the series, which will be well deserved.
Cat grieving for Ned, then going to her son who needed her more than she needed to grieve.
Tyrion becoming Hand
Jon's ride, Sam's courage, the boys catching him and reciting the oath to him. I got goosebumps just writing that.
Dany killing her beloved Drogo
Miri Maz Duur's singing, then screams, as Dany walked into the fire
KING IN THE NORTH
Sansa saying the line out loud that was only thought in the book
Joffrey being established as the sadistic monster that he is. Your hands or your tongue?
Jon and the men of the Watch riding out much in the same way the season began, except to the north this time, and to the unknown.
The only headshaker for me was Pycelle. Was that just to establish that he's not the doddering old fool that he would appear to be, combined with and post sex infohump?
great, great, great episode
