Game of Thrones Recap: Season 4, Episode 3: Who Killed the King?
Game of Thrones RecapSeason 4, Episode 3 **SPOILER ALERT
This week's episode, "Breaker of Chains," has the rest of the kingdom clamoring over the death of Joffrey Baratheon and it is the who dunnit of the GOT world and no it wasn't JR. Let's talk about what happened and get down to the nitty gritty of the deets, my GOT peeps.
Everyone thinks Sansa helped Tyrion kill JB. Yes he has the same initials as Justin Bieber... coincidence, I think not. Luckily, Dontos scurried her away and brought her to Littlefinger in the depths of the Black Water. As Littlefinger once told Sansa, everyone in the city lies and he proceeds to kill Dontos. Woops, poor guy, but at least he did not die in vain.
As Joffrey's body lies in the tomb, Cersei seems to the only person who is mourning his death. Quickly and evilly, Tywin is already getting ready to groom JB's brother, Tommen, to be the next great king. He acts as if nothing ever happened and he has zero remorse for his grandson. It is obvious that he knew that Joffrey would be a bad king as he listened to no one, thus Tywin is trying to plant the seed and tell Tommen he needs to listen to his council in order to be a good, wise king. Yes my spidey sense, tells me TYWIN DID IT! I am sure some of you guys know who did and seriously I hate you guys right now!
Jamie comes in to talk to Cersei and yeah they start making out and he proceeds to ravage her next to the body of their dead son. WTF! But I guess we can expect no less from people who indulge in incest. EWWWWWWWWW... people get a room.
Poor Tyrion is still in his cell and it feels as if they are going to judge him unfairly whether he likes it or not.
Oberyn and Ellaria have a threesome or fivesome, not sure how many bodies were there and then Tywin comes in to interrupt. Hello... can't you see they are getting their Game of Thrones on. Tywin tells Oberyn, who is known as the master of poisons, that because of this he looks suspicious, but regardless will put him on the counsel to judge Tyrion for his alleged crimes. He wants to create an alliance with Dorn and tells him that they need each other. Oh boy this all sounds so fishy!
The Wildlings invade a village and get crazy status, Ygritte uses her bow and arrows with more prowess than Daryl Dixon and Katniss Everdeen. Werk it girl. Well they kill off everyone, but a little boy and they tell him to go to the wall and send a message that they are coming soon. Uh oh! Wait till she sees Jon Snow... DOH!
Arya and the Hound make a quick appearance as they storm in and stay with a farmer and his daughter. The Hound shows us that he will always be the Hound, not a proper and sophisticated fella.
Finally we get back to Daenerys Targaryen and she gets to the city of Meereen and wants to free the slaves. In order to get her message across she throws barrels of shackles and chains to the slaves, in order to tell them yes, I will free you guys. Only the Khaleesi can pull off a stunt quite like that one.
The masters send down a warrior and asks Dany to send one of her men to battle him. Daario tells her he will fight for her and he goes against the warrior and his horse. Yup, he takes him down with one fell swoop. How do you like me now sucka?
Thus far, this season has not let me down one bit, the story, narrative and characters never disappoint. Did you guys hear that Jack Gleeson threw a party for his friends to see their reactions to his death? So cool!!!
