‘It’s Wonderful To Watch You Wrestle With These Dilemmas!!’
Herc Falls In Love With Diana Rigg All Over Again Via Tonight’s Amazing GAME OF THRONES!!
Game of Thrones 3.2 FAQ
What’s it called?
“Dark Wings, Dark Words.”
Teleplay is credited to Vanessa Taylor (“The Old Gods and the New”).
What says HBO?
“Sansa (Sophie Turner) says too much. Shae (Sibel Kekilli) asks Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) for a favor. Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) finds a way to pass the time. Arya (Maisie Williams) runs into the Brotherhood Without Banners.”
Theon, Brienne, Bran, Osha, Hodor, Varys, and The Hound missed the season opener. Are they back this week?
All but Varys.
Sansa says too much about what?
I shouldn’t say, but the scene in which Sansa spills is a major highlight.
How does Jaime pass the time?
By annoying Brienne.
A Brotherhood Without Banners? Are they like a bunch of masterless samurai or something?
Perhaps? They do prove quite an entertaining bunch.
How does it start?
Bran dreams and appears to learn something important about the three-eyed crow.
The big news?
The series outdoes itself this week. The fabulous Diana Rigg, once Mrs. Emma Peel of The Avengers, joins the cast tonight as Margaery and Loras’ brainy, charming and hilariously candid grandmamma Olenna Tyrell. Rigg is the best thing about this great episode, and establishes herself immediately as something akin to the “Thrones” version of Maggie Smith’s dowager countess Violet Crawley over on “Downton Abbey.”
What else is HBO not telling us?
Everyone hates the cave people. And you might find my post of Jan. 5 useful tonight.
Olenna. Catelyn’s tale. Mance. Arya. Arya’s fat friend. Jaime. Brienne. Joffrey. Hodor. Theon. Thoros and his sidekick. Bran’s new acquaintances. Natalie Dormer generally, and Margaery’s reaction to Sansa’s big reveal in particular. The decision that confronts Brienne. “I want to do this.” “I would have noticed your towhead smacking into the archways.” “We don’t get to choose who we love.” “Not to me.” “That was poor planning.” “You could have picked King Joffrey.” “Because I’m done talking.” “Having you killed would be the high point of his week.” “Yes, well, we shouldn’t be judgmental about these things.” “Something that sounded very painful …” So much more.
What’s not so great?
No Daenerys, Jorah, Tywin, Davos, Stannis, Bronn, Baelish or Ygritte this week.
How does it end, spoiler boy?
“I’d rather he takes yours.”
9 p.m. Sunday. HBO.
