There was tons of stuff going on in last Sunday’s Game of Thrones, but lucky for us we have our friends at Winteriscoming.net providing us with some of the sharpest analysis on the web. Ever since the events of the Purple Wedding, the writers on the show have been resetting the chess board of Westeros. We learned that the real culprits in the poisoning of Joffrey were the Tyrells. They worked in concert with Littlefinger to end the reign of the most spoiled boy in all of Westeros.
The Queen of Thorns demands being placed on par with the likes of Tywin Lannister. She is playing the long game, the real Game of Thrones. As we have heard from Littlefinger before. Some people fight over immediate power, and others fight for the long term. Littlefinger has had a plan of action from the moment Ned Stark rode into King’s Landing as the new hand of the King. It just took help from the Tyrells to put his ideas into reality.
We also got a major visit to the life of a White Walker. We saw one pick up the male baby from Crasters and ride north to what appears to be their home base. It reminded me of the Gates of Modor from the Lord of the Rings films. The baby was placed on an ice altar, and then transformed by the touch of a White Walker into one of them. Parents love the idea of blue eyes, but not that way. Check out the Winter is Coming Live! show below for more conversations about this week’s all over the place episode of Game of Thrones.
