yes, however will robb measure up?
Obviously, Sansa’s trying to increase the chances of his death. Who can blame her?
For the moment, it seems nobody besides Tyrion really knows what’s going on.
thank goodness we have this heroic trio to look after us.
The Lannister/Baratheon fleets aren’t in the harbor at King’s Landing, which Davos also finds suspicious; there is just one ship, which drifts slowly towards Stannis’ fleet. Davos at first takes the bait and orders his men to aim at the ship, but before he orders them to shoot he realizes there is noone on board – and that green liquid is leaking from the sides.
showing us the “oh” face. “ohhhh shit”
He realizes it’s wildfire too late, as Bronn shoots a flaming arrow that makes an epic arrow across the night sky before hitting the wildfire ship and sending Stannis’ ships into an explosion of Gremlin diarrhea.
legolas? scrappy legolas? homeless, scrappy legolas?
In others words, KABOOM! KABOOM to a whole bunch of ships, in addition to Davos and his son, who I assume are dead. There is a prolonged scene of men and ships consumed by yellow and green fire and explosions.
rough equivalents in producing my pleasure. yes thats a biebs.
Stannis’ men are scared shitless, but he plans to mount a ground assault anyway. I’m not sure how many ships he lost, or if it evened the odds against the Lannisters. Just in case you were wondering what being excited to blow people up looks like, here it is in the wildfire maester:
and here is not being excited to blow people up:
Cersei, Sansa, and the other ladyfolk are hiding out during the battle, protected only by Ser Ilyn Payne – the same tongueless man who beheaded Ned Stark.
always nice to have a familiar face… right?
Ilyn also has the task of beheading any traitors who try to steal shiny things in the confusion or defect. Cersei looks right at Sansa as she explains the importance of ruling by fear, and the danger of ‘traitors.’ Cersei forces wine on Sansa, and interrupts her praying: as Tywin once explained to her, the gods are not merciful. Yea, no daddy issues there.
Cersei then goes off into a feminist rant, which I would feel much more sympathetic with if it weren’t Cersei saying it.
and if she could tame that underbite.
She “should’ve been born a man;” when she and Jaime were little, they looked exactly the same, but as time went on he got to kill people and stuff and she had to do needlework. He got to use real weapons; she just has what’s between her legs. He was free, while she was sold like a cow by Tywin to Robert, and is now dominated by her son. Of all the women in this show unhappy with their gender, Cersei actually seems the most powerless, despite her crown. Arya is freed by her anonymity, Daenerys by her dragons, Brienne by her size and strength. Cersei has relied on her vag and womb, and now she’s stuck. Again, sympathy deflated by the fact that Cersei is also clearly trying to scare the crap out of Sansa, explaining all the rape and pillage that is to come if King’s Landing falls. Oh wait, she was lying! Cersei admits Ser Ilyn is actually there to kill all of the women if the Lannisters lose, so that Stannis can’t take them alive.
cut it out! it’s not her fault she’s a ginger!
