Game of Thrones (HBO): Season 7/Episode 2

7.2 Stormborn
Sam finds Ser Jorah in their dungeon and attempts an untested procedure on him to cure his Greyscale. Arya finds out from Hot Pie that her brother is now King of the North. Daenerys questions Varys’ loyalty but he convinces her as to where his true allegiances lie. Melisandre arrives at Dragonstone with a prophecy and a proposed alliance. Jon Snow accepts the invitation but faces stark opposition from everyone, including Sansa. He appeases her by leaving the north under her command. As Cersei initiates her smear campaign in the south, Olena, Yara, and Ellaria rendezvous with Daenerys in the north. Tyrion’s plan is for the armies of Dorne and Highgarden to take care of King’s Landing while the Unsullied lay siege to Casterly Rock. Yara’s fleet is ambushed by Euron’s at sea on their way back and a battle ensues. The sand snakes are slaughtered and their mother is captured. As Euron holds his niece hostage with a sword pointed at her throat, Theon abandons ship, taking Daenerys’ hope for a formidable navy along with him.

Westeros is just one big catfight waiting to happen, except that they’re doing it with dragons and armies in lieu of long nails and stilettos. It’s fun to see the women take charge, but does their petty royal rumble really count? No matter who sits on the Iron Throne, the greater threat will always be the Zombies, and Jon Snow is pivotal to that story arc. I’d be royally pissed if I were him. You die and finally find peace. They bring you back to bend a knee and fight their fight for them. Everybody wants a piece of you. Like, go to hell? Everyone? But yeah, you really have to give credit where it’s due. This show is cool because it blurs gender lines, plain and simple. It doesn’t matter if you have a vajayjay or a wiener (No offense, Grey Worm) you can wield power. If you play your cards right. Except Reek. He lost his dick a long time ago. In this episode, he lost his balls. Talk about total emasculation. No redeeming you now, kid. And congrats to Ser Jorah on his way to recovery. Whatevs, dude. Greyscale or no Greyscale, you’re still in the friendzone.

“The lords of Westeros are sheep. Are you a sheep? No. You're a dragon. BE a dragon.” –Olena Tyrell
