‘Game of Thrones’ S8 E6: The Final Meltdown

So Bran is not the Night King. Nobody time travelled and most of your other favorite internet fan theories did not come to fruition in the last of our 73 episode tour of Westeros. If you had told me beforehand that only a single, solitary character would die in the last episode of Game of…

‘Game of Thrones’ S8 E4 Recap: The Pain That Was Promised

And here I was thinking the brutality of last week’s episode would lead to some type of win for the audience as we enter the second half of the final season. I guess we have to remember that this is Game of Thrones after all. After a fun little feast, things go wrong and then…

‘Game of Thrones’ S8 E2 Recap: Fireside Chats

We get one more episode of “Full House: Westeros” before the abominable snowmen tear down all of our hopes and dreams next week in the battle at Winterfell. But the last day and night before the big fight provided plenty of proverbial goats for us to sink our dragon teeth into. Gend-rya happened, Jon spilled…

‘Game of Thrones’ S8 E1 Recap: How To Claim Your Dragon

We have gone just about 600 days since the season seven finale of Game of Thrones. Since then I’ve aged more than Melisandre taking off her magic necklace. Now the wait is over… at least for the premiere. We still have a ton of questions that will hopefully be answered over the coming weeks as…

‘Game of Thrones’ S7 E7 Recap: Hello, My Name Is…

We knew this Game of Thrones finale would come quickly with only seven episodes in the penultimate season. But even so, we are left with so many twists, turns, and complex moments to break down over the next year. Yes, there is an ice dragon that’s going to be a giant pain. But that’s not…

‘Game of Thrones’ S7 E6 Recap: Fishing for Dragons

It was all about taking wildcards off the table this week on Game of Thrones. Three separate individuals who have acted as “get out of jail free” cards in the past bit the dust in this penultimate episode of season 7. At this point if characters go “Beyond the Wall,” which happens to be the name…

Game of Thrones S7 E5 Recap: Justice League of Westeros

I don’t know how many times I can say this season of Game of Thrones is heating up. The more accurate description this week is cooling down. The focus has shifted to the North, the White Walkers, and the army of the dead. But we didn’t see much of them yet. Instead we had characters…

‘Game of Thrones’ S7 E4 Recap: Chariots on Fire

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that this expansive group of characters from Game of Thrones are occupying the same world. But as Jamie charged with a spear in hand at Daenerys, it became quite clear that season 7 is playing for keeps. In that moment, Dany likely didn’t realize this pursuer was the same dude…

‘Game of Thrones’ S7 E3 Recap: Between a Rock and a Highgarden

This week’s episode of Game of Thrones was all about new friends and new places. Well when I say new friends, I mean that characters met for the first time and didn’t get along. When I say new places, I mean we saw two ancient castles for the first time and they were promptly taken…

‘Game of Thrones’ S7 E2 Recap: Euron Trouble

From the end of season six through last week’s season premiere, everything seemed way too optimistic for our favorite characters. That’s not the Game of Thrones way. Episode two, Stormborn, reminded us of that. Daenerys’ first action in her conquest led to a pretty rough defeat on the high seas. But after last week’s introduction,…

‘Game of Thrones’ S7 E1 Recap: Where’s Walder?

Sure I rewatched all of the seasons and the blu-ray extras. I read all the articles and watched all the trailers on repeat. But it felt like Game of Thrones season 7 may never come. Even as social media swelled this past weekend with random acquaintances posting their favorite quotes in anticipation. It wasn’t until…

‘Game of Thrones’ S6 E10 Recap: Wildfire, Treason and Plot

We’re all used to it. We’ve seen it over and over throughout the years watching Game of Thrones. Characters die, and usually in horrible circumstances. But never have we seen so many characters that we know die in one episode. They are clearing the board for all the main characters to duke it out in…

‘Game of Thrones’ S6 E9 Recap: The Glorious Bastards

It’s the battle Game of Thrones has been teasing since the first trailer for season 6. Plus it’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for when Ramsay finally picks on someone his own size. The episode titled “Battle of the Bastards” was difficult to watch, yet satisfying. But we have been preparing for the Jon vs….
