Game of Thrones (HBO): Season 3/Episode 1

3.1 Valar Dohaeris
Samwell makes it back to camp and is reprimanded for not sending the crows as he was tasked to do to warn everyone about the danger about to come. Jon Snow finally meets the king beyond the wall and convinces him that he is willing to join their cause. Davos survives the wildfire attack and is rescued, but eventually ends up in the dungeons after defying Melisande. Tyrion pays his father a visit and asks him to name him heir to Casterly Rock. He is refused and insulted heavily in return. Petyr tells Sansa tha he might be able to take her with him on a ship once he sails north for a special trip. Margaery and Joffrey ride in a caravan through Flea Bottom where he was once attacked by the townsfolk. She, on the other hand, braves the crowd and makes her way to an orphanage where she gives support to the poor, winning their hearts. Robb Stark arrives at Harrenhal where he finds everyone dead. Daenerys arrives at Astapor to buy an army of the Unsullied, slave soldiers who undergo intense training to serve their owners’ cause. When a warlock disguised as a little girl tries to harm her, a cloaked knight comes to the rescue, introducing himself as Ser Barristan Selmy, her father’s Kingsguard.

Ouch. While I appreciate having seen Daddy Lannister’s “fatherly” side at Harrenhal somehow, his brutally honest tirade against Gimli was just so heard to listen to. I mean, come on, how one-sided could you be. It should be Joffrey Bieber who should be suffering from his embarrassing performance during the Battle of Blackwater. Oh well, there is always injustice at Westeros anyway so why should I even be surprised. Speaking of Joffrey Bieber, regardless of his being a spoiled brat, I think he is really smitten with Queen Wannabe Margaery, whose ambition could not be any more obvious. Girl, your husband just died from the freak shadow monster attack! I like her guts, though. She does know how to play this game, and we need more able players! And she’s a woman too, so she is a welcome addition to the impending grand Westeros catfight. I would pay premium seats if you put her, Dragon Mama, Jean Grey, Lady Stark, and of course, Queen Bitch in one room to play drunk Mahjong. That would be interesting.
