Game of Thrones (HBO): Season 4/Episode 4

4.4 Oathkeeper
Daenerys frees the slaves of Meereen and crucifies their masters. Jaime continues training with Bronn, who tells him that he’s convinced Tyrion didn’t murder Joffrey. He visits his brother in his cell and comes to the same conclusion that he didn’t do it. He keeps his oath to Catelyn Stark, entrusts his Valyrian steel sword to Brienne, and asks her to find and protect Sansa. He sends Podrick with her as her squire despite her reluctance, saving his life. Petyr accuses Sansa of poisoning the king, and then drops hints that he was involved. Olenna Tyrell indirectly admits to Margaery that she is responsible for poisoning Joffrey, and then advises her to act quickly before Cersei can turn Tommen against her. She sneaks into his room later that night to gain his trust. The acting commander of the Night’s Watch keeps making Jon Snow’s life difficult at Castle Black and recognizes him as a valid threat to his position. He sends him to Craster’s Keep, where Bran and company have just ended up being captured by the mutineers.

Game of Thrones (HBO): Season 4/Episode 2

4.2 The Lion and the Rose
Now answering to the name “Reek,” Theon becomes Ramsay Bolton’s fool. Shae’s indiscretion leads to Cersei and Tywin discovering her as Tyrion’s whore, effectively putting her life in jeopardy, and forcing Tyrion to ship her to Pentos. Melisandre continues burning people alive as a sacrifice to the Lord of Light. Bran spends more time honing his Warg abilities, possessing his dire wolf longer and longer each time. Joffrey and Margaery wed. As Oberyn and Loras eye each other at the banquet, Jaime approaches the young Tyrell and tells him he would never marry Cersei. He responds that neither would he. Joffrey puts on a show of midgets mocking Robb and other claimants to the throne, making everyone uncomfortable, particularly Sansa and Loras. He embarrasses Tyrion before drinking his celebratory wine, which he asks him to serve. It doesn’t take long before he chokes and falls to the floor with blood rushing out of his nostrils. The king has been poisoned, and Cersei is quick to point a finger at his little brother as the culprit.

Cock (Red Turnip Theater)

John (Topper Fabregas) has not been a very faithful partner. His infidelity starts off on the daily commute where he exchanges glances with a girl, whose name is not mentioned so we will just call her W (Jenny Jamora). Soon, the two of them are sleeping together, not just once, not just twice. This does not sit well with John’s boyfriend, whose name is not mentioned either so we will just call him M (Niccolo Manahan). Unable to decide which one to choose even after weighing the various pros and cons, John gets a suggestion from M, which is for all three of them to meet. He says he would even prepare dinner. M also invites his father (Audie Gemora) who has been supportive of the gay couple’s relationship in spite of his initial reluctance to it. As John’s white lies begin to surface amidst the confrontation, he is forced not just by circumstance, but also by the other three characters to make up his mind, which he simply could not come to accomplish. Perhaps his question sums it all up best: can’t he just have both?

Game of Thrones (HBO): Season 4/Episode 1

4.1 Two Swords
Jaime wants to serve in the King’s Guard again but Tywin orders him to return to Casterly Rock and rule in his stead.

Prince Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal) of Dorne arrives in King’s Landing and heads straight to Petyr’s brothel where he causes a mini commotion.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Captain America (Chris Evans) adjusts to modern life by doing what he does best: being a soldier. Now working under the tutelage of S.H.I.E.L.D. he teams up with the likes of Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and takes on missions set by director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). But some persistent tentacles of the past just can’t be totally severed. As all of them are caught unawares by a conspiracy decades in the making, they are forced to fend for themselves and trace the root of all their dilemmas, leading them to a not so distant past that has apparently survived to haunt them in the present. The plot thickens with the reemergence of Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), not as the best friend Steve once knew, but as a brainwashed assassin for hire known by the moniker Winter Soldier. The two comrades face off amidst a changing landscape that will change the Marvel Cinematic Universe forever.
