Oh what a glorious weekend! Not only is it Easter, we have gotten new Doctor Who, the premier of Orphan Black and season 3 of Game of Thrones had finally started. Oh HBO, why must you make us wait so long between seasons?! Well I guess absence only makes the heart grow fonder. It's so amazing to see all of the characters we've fallen in love with back on screen (well a few of them weren't in tonight's premier but soon)... of course when it comes to GoT we have to spend every single episode fearing for their lives. Nobody is safe in George R.R. Martin's fantastic little world.
So, to give a blow by blow of what happened in this episode is just impossible. GoT is quite possibly the most complicated show on TV, following more characters than I can count at the moment as my brain is still on fire from watching the new episode. Not to mention everybody has a completely different plot line... yes most of them are out to get the iron throne, but so many are sneaker than that. So I'll give the most important plot points in the characters most followed in this episode.
Samwell Tarly: Oh gosh the White Walkers are active again. The show opens with their horrifying cries followed by the screams of a dying man... Sam is thankfully saved by one of the White Walker zombie minions by Jon Snow's dog and whats left of the Night's Watch.
Davos Seaworth: IS ALIVE?! That's right, despite his ship (and his son) being blown apart by dragon fire last season Seaworth made it through! Not only that, but he is immediatly able to flag down a ship to rescue him... and who's ship is it? Why none other than his pirate friend Salladhor Saan! Well that all worked out rather well for him. Saan tells Seaworth that Stanis has... lost his mind. He spends all his time with the Red Woman and does nothing but burn prisoners. After much begging, Saan takes Seaworth to Stannis... but Stannis won't leave the Red Lady and when Seaworth goes after her with a knife Seaworth is imprisoned.
Margaery Tyrell: Now on her way to being queen, Tyrell's whorey-ness has been toned down. Actually she's quite lovely, stopping at an orphanage, speaking to the children and giving them toys. In fact, her kindness seems to melt Joffery's douchey little heart. It may have grown three sizes that day. But Tyrell isn't impressing Cersei, oh now a battle of tongues begins. Cersei is one crazy bitch, Tyrell better watch her half naked back.
Sansa Stark: Nothing too exciting, but Littlefinger is planning on taking her away. Of course Shea vows to protect her but when Littlefinger is involved... well this plot will prove to be interesting.
Of course this is only the first episode, but already we are building up to sooo much! I can't wait to see where all of this goes!
