Game of Thrones (HBO): Season 2/Episode 8

2.8 The Prince of Winterfell
Seeing him more valuable alive than dead, Catelyn frees Jaime and tasks Brienne of bringing him back to King’s Landing in exchange for her daughters. When Robb finds out, he orders his men to guard his mother 24/7. Tyrion says that Joffrey must fight with his men in the battlefield, a suggestion Cersei is not very fond of. She tells him that she has his whore hostage. Upon seeing her, Tyrion finds out that it is not Shae, but plays along anyway to fool his sister. Arya intends for her assassin to kill Tywin before he could attack her brother’s camp, but Tywin marches before she could find him. She then asks him to help them escape, or she will name him as her third and last name. True enough, they walk out of Harrenhal unscathed that evening. Ser Jorah begs Daenerys to flee with him on a ship headed to Astapor, but she refuses to leave her dragons. She instead asks him to bring her to the House of the Undying. Yara arrives at Winterfell and chastises Theon for killing the two Stark boys. She tells him that she has come to bring him back home, but he insists that Winterfell is his. Maester Luwin (Donald Sumpter) sees Osha lurking around the walls and discovers that Bran and Rickon are both alive and well.

Not only is Lily Allen’s brother a murderer, he is also a cheater. So apparently they killed two young boys and passed them off as the two Starks. Some people are just too hungry for respect and attention that they are willing to fake their way to the top. The only good thing about his scenes in this episode is his sister’s veiled confession that she cares for him. Aww, family! And aww, Gimli is in love! It’s just funny that Queen Bitch finally thought she was getting even with her baby brother, only to hostage the wrong person. If Gimli was not too overwhelmed with relief he must have been laughing so hard inside. Dragon Mama is playing the role of the martyr this time, deciding to tackle a trap head-on. She is said to be the last of the Targaryens, so I do not really fear for her safety. More Starks and Lannisters would fall before she does. I am just wondering what she has up her sleeves this time around. Surely, her little party trick at her late husband’s funeral pyre would not do this time. And she only has two men left, by the way.
