I’d forgotten that this is actually one of the funniest episodes of the show. Between Edmure Tully not being able to light his father’s funeral pyre and Tyrion dragging a chair up to the council table.
But Pod is the winner.
If you’re unfamiliar or lost track of this episode, this is the one where Tyrion hires a bunch of prostitutes to take Pod’s virginity and whatever happens is so good, that they refuse to take the money.
It’s such a genius scene. And I love that Pod is apparently the greatest lover in the seven kingdoms.
Runner Up is Hot Pie, who got himself a cozy little job baking bread at an inn. He also makes Arya a wolf bread, and it’s all very sweet.
Missandei And Grey Worm Watch
Dany takes her from her master. She will soon be freed. Also, she contributes to the comedy, with her interpretations of her master’s insults to Dany. Basically, I just wanted to give her a win, because, she’s my fave.
But also, since they often fall under the auspices of this section, I’ll note that Gilly gave birth to Little Sam this episode, and Sam saw it.
Sansa’s Agency Watch
Sansa is not in this episode
Arya Bad Ass Watch
Arya’s not so much a bad ass here as she is really sad to be losing another friend. But at least for now, she still has Gendry
Robb Is A King And Kind Of Bad At It
Robb’s actually doing OK at the moment. But the results of his horrendous kinging, IE Theon being captured and tortured by Ramsey Bolton (Who is still Ramsey Snow at this point, and we don’t know who he is…) is in full swing and I really forgot how tedious those scenes are.
King Tommen The Adorable
OK, it’s not Tommen, but the actor who later plays Tommen is in this episode as one of the Lannister Cousin, so I had to bring this up.
Who Was Jaime A Dick To?
All those Bolton men, and also Brienne a little bit.
