This episode was awesome! Let’s begin with Jon Snow! First he decides to “punish” the traitors who killed him and not forgive them for what they’ve done. I can’t tell you how glad i am that finally Olly is dead! I was waiting for that moment since he shot ygritte. I knew he did it because the wildlings were responsible for his parents’ death, but he stabbed Jon Snow, so he deserved to die! No one stabs the Lord Commander! The second awesome Jon Snow moment is when he resigned! After all, the oath says:
“Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the fire that burns against the cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night’s Watch, for this night and all the nights to come”
He died, so his watch ended! He gave everything to the Night’s Watch and he tried to make peace with the Wildlings so that everyone can survive the White Walkers. They didn’t want his help, so he should leave and do something different. Maybe get Winterfell back!
The Tower of Joy flashback is very important for the show. With Bran’s help, we went back in time to see Ned’s combat with Ser Arthur Dayne. With that amazingly choreographed fight, we see young Ned trying to help his sister. Sadly the vision ended too soon for us to see if our theory (known as R+L=J) is right. In this theory, Ned finds his sister giving birth to a baby (Jon) and before she dies at birth, she asks Ned to promise her to protect the baby. Because of that, Ned took the baby home and introduced it as his own child. Maybe that is why we never found out more about the birth mother.
Rickon is back! Do you remember him? It’s been years since we last saw him! This child is so unlucky, that he ended up in front of Ramsay. I don’t know how Ramsay is going to use him, but I’m sure it won’t be pleasant for the boy. I’m pretty sure Jon Snow is going to find out about that and i don’t think he will like it. I hope he will attack Ramsay, but it won’t be easy to find an army for this war.
Arya can see! I am so excited about that, but to be honest, I would like her to become a badass daredevil! That would have been awesome to see. Right now Arya is a girl with no name, but will she remain one?
Daenerys is having a step back in these first episodes. She is being treated like garbage and she is sent to live in a place full of old Khal widows. I don’t think that that is what Daenerys was meant to do. She was supposed to train her dragons and march to King’s Landing. Until she arrives, everyone would be dead already. Come on Khaleesi, get in the game!
