Dear Gossips,

Got back from Banff last night and had to watch Game Of Thrones again from the comfort of my own bed. By the show’s episode 9 standards, I can’t say it was my favourite. But… I have a question I can’t stop thinking about.  Read Full Intro

You Know Nothing. Obviously.

Game Of Thrones Season 4 Episode 9 recap The Wall. Jon and Sam each stare into the bleak, unending night, lost in their own misery. Then it turns out Sam’s misery has a name and it’s spelled G-I-L-L-Y. He wants to know what it was like to be with a girl, you know, with-with, and wants Jon to tell him since he didn’t get the chance. Full Story

Lainey loves her Girl Sh-it and her Boy Sh-t, and I love Sibling Sh-t. It’s like Girl Sh-t and Boy Sh-t piled with childhood issues and family dynamics. Of course we’ve had our fair share of it lately (thanks, Solange!) but it doesn’t have to be so dramatic to be interesting. I’m fascinated by Kate and Rooney Mara (why won’t they pose together?!). Full Story

Game Of Thrones Season 4 Episode 8 recap I think the question on everybody’s mind has to do with the human body, the physics therein, and whether that could have actually happened, but let’s do it in sequence as we usually do, just to maintain the suspense a little. The previouslies alone need footnotes. Full Story

You Cannot Give Up On The Gravy

Game Of Thrones Season 4 Episode 7 recap: The return of Hot Pie When you’re on the road the way this episode is, everything can feel disjointed. But the exciting part of it is that there’s no cabin fever. Things are moving, both in the more and less literal senses. And it almost felt – good? Like fun, or exciting? I apologize in advance for the lack of pronouns in this recap, but there were a lot of single-sex scenes, which makes “he” and “she” kind of futile. Full Story

Trial.

Game Of Thrones Season 4 Episode 6 recap Sometimes I complain that there’s action without consequence.  This episode is not that. In fact, this might be the actual exemplary episode of GOT – there’s violence and sex and cunning plots and most importantly, really getting to spend time with the masterminds of everyone’s fate. Full Story

Twosomes

Game Of Thrones Season 4 Episode 5 recap Excuse me?  A preview with Ned Stark in it? Okay this is going to be GOOD. This episode was comprised almost entirely of twosomes. One conversation after another held between two people, without the artifice of everyone around to perform for, who can cut straight to the heart of the matter. Full Story

The Oathkeeper and others

Game Of Thrones Season 4 Episode 4 recap Things got interesting, but that’s not the same thing as saying that they got fun.   There are movements in the stories, of course, but I was really hard-pressed for a laugh this week. Mostly that’s because we weren’t watching my favourite sitcom, Arya & The Hound, and because Tyrion in a regular shirt sitting in a cell doesn’t bring many laughs. Full Story

Who Run The World?

Game Of Thrones Season 3 Episode 3 recap Not girls, necessarily, but did you notice how they were at the centre of every single plot? Westeros is filled with powerful men, but it’s the women – right down to Gilly – who have the most going on in every situation.   The other notable thing about this episode was that the stories started and ended – more vignettes than overlapping stories. Full Story

We Hardly Knew Ye

Game Of Thrones Season 4 Episode 2 recap Okay, NOW. Now we begin! Maybe. If you’re ready. If you’ve managed to erase that face from your mind you must not be human, or were looking down at your iPad most of the time. That has stayed with me through repeated viewings. Shudder. Those repeated viewings taught me that the last 2/3 of the show are basically a parade of people who could have done it, so let’s first deal with the parts of the show that aren’t that. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

HBO announced yesterday that Game Of Thrones has been renewed for two more seasons after Sunday’s record-breaking ratings for the premiere of Season 4. That would, in theory, catch the show up with how many books have been released – five to date.  Read Full Intro
