Arya kills for the first time
And so it is….. Another Game of Thrones season ended… Valar Morghulis my friends... No one is safe...
An amazing season I would say with lots of WTF moments… Let’s recap a bit the season through those jaw dropping moments! (It goes without saying that this post is full of spoilers to those who have not yet watched season 4!!)
Arya makes her first kill on episode 1, with the help of the Needle while the Hound delivers the “chicken speech”! “Every fucking chicken in this room…“
Oberyn... in every scene
Oberyn in every single scene! Whether it is the introductory scene in Littlefinger’s brothel, his touching discussion with Tyrion about the first time that they actually met or his marvelous death….
“- Are you going to fight that? - I am going to kill that.” An amazing character that was built up in only one season and made us all morn his death at the 8th episode…
The Purple Wedding
Well, who can forget the first major WTF moment of the season: The Purple Wedding! Joffrey’s death was such a shocker although everyone waited/hoped for it. The way that the episode was building up to this, makes this the second best episode of the season!
Littlefinger has big plans
Littlefinger’s betrayals were revealed during this season. So yes, it seems (at least for now) that this Irish is behind everything! His ultimate WTF moment: the moon door…
Following Littlefinger’s Machiavellian ways, Sansa makes the ultimate surprise by supporting his story and then has a makeover (to hide her red Stark hair) revealing a more goth look….
The controversial scene
At episode 3 we had one of the most controversial scenes..... A rape that ends up consensual? Jamie and Cersei have sex/Cersei is getting raped (I told you: controversial scene) on their son’s death bed. Doesn’t get nastier than that...
Ygritte knew everything
After the jaw dropping best episode of the season with Oberyn’s death, the action is tranfered at the Wall where I think the most WTF moment was Ygritte’s death… “You know nothing Jon Snow..”, she whispered for the last time...
Take a walk on the wild side (with the whitewalkers)
And who can forget the white walkers?? We (finally) saw them again, and it was spooky!!
Hodor! Hodor! Hodor!
Hodor was playing a bigger part this season, with him finally taking a stand (with the help/possession of Bran) and shouting proudly “Hodor” to whoever was in his way!
A moment that is not so much WTF but will be the key to Peter Dinklage winning yet another Emmy, was the powerful trial speech scene with Tyrion telling the population of King's Landing exactly what he thinks of them.
"Father, I wish to confess. I wish to confess…"
And I believe the last WTF moment(s) came at the season finale, with Tyrion escaping (thankfully) but facing Shae and his Father….
Sansa slapping Robin
Reek’s bath (of horror)
Olenna's been a bad girl...
Ever since I first set foot on a cinema theatre, I knew that something magical was happening there....
