Game of Thrones was fantastic this week, you guys! Love love love. Might be the best one yet (yep, I totally said it), and it will definitely go down as one of the top episodes of all time. Without further delay, here is the recap for “And Now His Watch Is Ended”
Jamie and Brienne
Thankfully, the ep started off with Jamie right away, since we were eager to see how he survived his unhanding. The answer is, not surprisingly: not well at all. His hand is tied around his neck to tell his shame, and he falls off his horse into the mud. The bandits kick and beat him, especially when he tries to fight them with his other hand. Brienne is watching out for him the best she can, but there isn’t much she can do.
Later in the episode, a defeated mud-encrusted Jamie sits at the fire with Brienne, refusing to eat. She tells him to eat, to live and take revenge. She also goads him about his whining, crying, and quitting, and calls him a woman – yes his lot in life just got a bit crappier, but he’s still a damn Lannister and all that. He begrudgingly eats, and then Brienne is downright nice about him saving her from rape prior to his hand being chopped off. Her father has no actual riches to speak of, but Jamie lied for her – she asks him why, but he won’t answer. I really love them as unlikely comrades in their currently shitty situation.
Bran & Littlest Stark, Hodor, and Tonks
We briefly see Bran dreaming again of the three-eyed crow, and the redheaded boy is with him as well. This storyline is dull at the moment, I hope something interesting happens soon.
