Game of Thrones: Recap of S3:Ep.3 – Walk of Punishment or as we call it… When things got a little out of hand.Sunday, April 14th, 2013
Synopsis: Jaime learns that he can’t buy his way out of everything.
My recap: So, of all the shows we cover on this site, there are only two that my family watches together: The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. So, as these shows’ episodes unfurl themselves before us… we compare the stories to their book forms. Now, Game of Thrones has decided to interweave story lines from the third and fourth books… which makes us scratch our heads and they put a lot of emphasis on characters that are really not that important i.e. Theon Greyjoy.
Let me digress, so the episode started with the funeral of Papa Tully. Yet, it was watching Edmure hilariously and incompetently shoot an arrow to finish off the funerary custom of pitching the decedent’s body aflame. It was actually Catelyn’s uncle, Black Fish, that finished the deed. But, this little family reunion that included Robb, just showed us the issues between Edmure and Robb. In all honesty, I would have pushed him off a cliff at this time because Edmure will be a hindrance in the long run. This is also another time of watching Catelyn, once again, bemoan the tragedy that has befallen her. We know, we know…
Outside of this, we got to check up on Arya, she is about to ship out with Gendry with the Brothers without Banners. If you are are wondering about Hotpie? Well, he got a job at the kitchen they were hanging out at because as he said, “My brother ain’t no king, I’m not a Stark of Winterhell.” As a bon voyage present, he made Arya a loaf of bread in the shape of wolf and as she rode off she told Hotpie that it tasted good. We’ll miss you Hotpie.
In homage of the Godfather, the White Walkers used horse parts as art. Mance also made a plan that would pick off the murder of crows. Unfortunately, they have to somehow climb a wall to do so. Now, the murder of crows have med their way back to Craster’s den of incest. Unfortunately, Sam saw a baby born and I want to say it is a boy and we are all sure that he will try to do something about the baby.
Now, onto House Lannister. Tyrion has been made head of the treasury, by his father, and upon reviewing the past ledgers he learns that they are massively in debt. Tyrion also gave us one of the few fun points in the show and it revolved around his servant, Pod. He finally got his a present for being such a great employee and that is three whores. Well, guess what. He was so great in the sack that the ladies didn’t charge him and that blew Tyrion’s mind and he and his henchman, Bronn, asked for details.
This was the scene that made me drop my cafe con leche. Locke allows Jaime to try to sway him as Jaime attempts to save Brienne from being gang raped. But Locke just makes Jaime think that he has won, until he led him to the table to get a bite to eat. That’s where Locke chopped off Jaime’s hand. You heard me. Now, as we all know… Jaime’s ability to fight is his claim to fame. without that… what will he do? So, this should be interesting to see.
Now, no episode is complete without some Dragon action and we all went into shock when Daenerys exchanged one of her dragons in payment for the Unsullied. Really? Now, we all know that she will not give up any of her babies, but still.
Also, can I just the say that the music that played the episode out was so off-kilter that it threw everyone for a loop. Awesome episode.
