There's no cross domain hackery or tracking voodoo, it's just some sweet jQuery animations.
Please, think of the animations.
In the meantime, enjoy the html version below. I guess. If that's your thing.
Olenna Joining the Brienne of Tarth Fanclub
Jill: I'm a little surprised we didn't get a scene where someone told Brienne she had to wear a skirt in King's Landing. I would have loved to see her look of disdain.
love the way this scene was handled. Olenna fangirling over Brienne of Tarth was awesome enough, but the way she did it—slightly condescending as if Brienne was a dog who'd done a particularly impressive trick—was so true to Olenna's character. In Olenna's eyes, you may be cool, but you're never as cool as her.
Incest AND Cannibalism!
Rebecca: Between the Thenn's somewhat, er, unique culinary tastes and Jaime's tense conversation with his sisterlover Cersei,
Game of Thrones managed to pack not one but two major taboos into this episode! Hannibal needs to step up its game.
Jill: It probably says a lot about what (entertainment) I consume that neither of those scenes made me squeamish.
Dany the Dragon Tamer!
Rebecca: "WHY DON'T YOU SAY THAT TO MY FACE?!"
Jill: BAD DRAGON, BAD!!!!
Grey Worm, You Cutie
Rebecca: Grey Worm and his crush on Missandei is
adorable. I just want to tacklehug him and cover his face in kisses, and I never thought I'd say that about a character named "Grey Worm."
Jill: I don't blame them for playing this idiotic man-game, it's pretty dull in Dany's army if we're being honest.
My Fiancé's a Psycho! HA HA HA HA.
Rebecca: Joffrey's a little psycho. Margaery don't care. She's got this.
Jill: The expression on her face when she talked about Joffrey honestly was scary/depressing.
Our New Daario
Rebecca: I like to think I had an open mind when it comes to the new Daario. I thought he might work. But no. The character's thing is that he's the chink in Dany's defenses, the flamboyant bad boy douchebag she falls for because though she's actively working to become a super-mature queen/mother of dragons/leader of men, she's still a teenage girl who never had much of a childhood. Daario's the jackass out in the school parking lot selling drugs and being a total blue-haired jerk while Dany's doubling down on studying so she can get a full ride to MIT. This new guy's smooth, and he's hot, but he's not Daario. The real Daario has knives with handles shaped like naked ladies, for Christ's sake. He's a
Jill: Well, I think Rebecca said it all. It should be noted, however, we had huge traffic spikes after the episode aired on ALL our Daario 2.0 posts. Looks like some viewers were confused after all.
Jaime Lannister the Comedian
Rebecca: Nothing will ever be better than Jaime's little wave here. Well. Maybe the scene with him and Brienne where he asks "Are you sure we're not related?" From the guy who sleeps with his sister. *eyebrow waggle*
Jill: Slow clap to the person responsible for that direction. I mean really, give that person a hand.
Bisexual Oberyn Martell
So glad that the show included Oberyn's bisexuality, as established in the books. I'm just imagining teenage dudebros—the people Game of Thrones must think constitutes their primary audience due to all the sexposition scenes—watching this reveal. "Aw yeah, boobies. Sweet, the hot chick's letting the manly dude get in on some threesome action! Wait... what... what's happening?"
Jill: *blushing forever*
The Return of Ser Dontos
Rebecca: Ser Dontos! I honestly thought they'd cut him out, so I'm pleasantly surprised to see him here. Also, the way Sansa treats him—nicely when she has no reason to, when she's going through a tough time and just wants to be left alone—is further evidence that
she's better than your faves.
Jill: I know too much, I can't say anything about this scene!
What the F*ck's a Lommy?
Rebecca: GPOY casual
Game of Thrones fans.
Jill: I need a t-shirt with this quote on it, stat!
Rebecca: Arya’s reactions when Polliver was trying to be all tough-guy in his conversation with Sandor are
gold. “Who the f*ck is this loser? I’m gonna kill him. I’m gonna kill him so good.”
Jill: So...they definitely sat down to a feast of chicken after the big fight, right?
