Beyond the Wall: This Week on Game of Thrones (S3 Episode 6 / May 5, 2013)

NOTE: Join us every MONDAY as we review the latest episode...

EPISODE 6: The Climb

THE PLOT : The long summer is at an end, winter truly is coming and with it the cold winds of war as five self proclaimed Kings claim dominance over Westeros, but there can be only one winner when you play the game of thrones.

THE LOWDOWN: (The following column contains MAJOR SPOILERS, so I don't recommend reading this if you haven't watched this episode). Sam and Gilly are the absolute most unlikely union of characters in this show, but are they ever adorable. And Sams Dragonglass dagger is looking awfully badass. Dont worry, hell be breaking that bad boy in soon enough (figured it might happen tonight, judging by how big that fire was. Not exactly captain inconspicuous). Not much changed for Theon, except that it looks like hes down to nine fingers. His torturer feels like Joffreys long lost brother. They had to have been separated at birth, cause dudes a viciously evil little bastard. All he needs is a crossbow.

Climbing the wall doesnt look like much fun. Wildlings arent too bright, but Jon Snow is and the look on his face before they start is proof that maybe ignorance is bliss. Of course, clearly not all wildlings are ignorant, because Ygritte is quick to put him on Front Street about secrets and loyalty. A clever girl knows where to make her alliances, and I respect the hell out of that. And so does Jon Snow. The avalanche didnt look like good times either, and it didnt take long for Warg-boy to jump at the chance to screw Snow over. Thankfully it didnt work, but Ill say this, the first Id have done once I got to the top (after kissing the damn ground) wouldve been to throw his monkey ass into the sunset. Lets see your eagle save you from that numb nuts.

I found Aryas meeting with Melisandre to be most interesting, and I can only imagine whats going through her head when she hears them speak the words Jaqen Hghar told her before he left. I know she wants to find him, but seeing this must shake that foundation a bit. I cant wait to see the day when her bite can live up to her bark (or what happens when she and Melisandre meet again). I like Roose Bolton, hes treating Jamie and Brienne fairly (to a point), but he also knows the right choices to make. And letting Jamie go home is definitely the right choice. Ahhh, choices. One of the greatest things about this show is how quickly things change. Varys and Littlefinger share a verbal bout, the first in a long time, only this time Littlefinger proves victor. The shift of scenes to Joffrey holding a crossbow and then panning out to see what became of Roz certainly gets the point across.

GAME OF THRONES SEASON 3's sixth episode sees many a change to the game plan. Things are Kings Landing are completely f*cked. Tywins got it all in check (his and Granny Tyrells entire discussion was gold, but nothing beats the look on his face when she asks if hed ever crossed swords with any of the boys growing up). Sansas never going to catch a break, this much is clear. Poor girl should just jump out the window and be done with it. Tyrion, well, hes not fairing any better lately, and although they didnt show it, I can only imagine how awkward that discussion between him and Sansa was with Shae in the room. And then theres Robb and Lord Freys demands. Every nerve ending in my body cringes at the thought.

SEX/NUDITY: : Roz is naked. Shes dead of course, but still naked. Its unclear as to whether or not Joffrey hit that with his tiny arrow first, but Im assuming not.

VIOLENCE: Theon makes me appreciate having all my fingers. And, well, see the previous line.

SHARPEST QUIP: Osha and Meera dont seem to be getting along and once the conversation gets heated, Osha loses her temper. Osha: Youve got a big mouth girl. And too many teeth. Im going to make it a point to have my girl use that line sometime. Hopefully not on me.

MOST EPIC SCENE: Its a tough call. I love seeing Varys and Littlefinger have at it, but Granny Tyrell and Tywin Lannister were toe to toe there for a while. It was most entertaining.

FINAL VERDICT :

Extra Tidbit: Rickon said three words tonight. True story.

Varys: "And without those lies, the realm descends into a pit of chaos!"
Littlefinger: "No. Chaos is not a pit...

...it's a ladder"

That exchange at the end gave me chills. Lord Balish is one cold motherfucker

I was wondering where Melisandre disappeared to. I thought Arya was going to shoot her with an arrow. Would have been cool to see her pull it out like nothing happened.

Tiny spoiler alert!

Solid episode. I really liked the scene where Melisandre came to the Brotherhood. It was not a scene in the books and also boosted Gendry's role within the show. I've said this time and again, I love how much they're playing up the role of Gendry in the show. In the books, he kind of gets written out of it after book three. Which I thought odd since he's Robert's bastard, you'd figure he'd have a more prominent role in the story. But love that they're making him a more central character

The stuff with Theon was great too, as a comparison to the books, this stuff with torture was never there. The book picks up after his kidnapping and shows the after effects of his torture. So I like the show showing us how he gets there.
Slight deviations from the books. But I think they're only working to enhance the story overall.

Yeah, I remembered Gendry dying off suddenly in the books. This Melisandre bit makes me think he might be around a little longer, but I'm sure it'll be some sort of sacrifice to utilize his "King's blood".

Your memory's a bit off, Snake. The last we see of Gendry, he's still alive. It's possible that Lady Stoneheart killed him, but I doubt it.

That torture shit needs to come to a conclusion, its been 6 episodes. I was practically celebrating the reveal and then "nah just fucking with you."

The ending to this episode reminded me so much of 'Princess Bride' I wanted to hear Peter Falk chime in and say "since the invention of the moustache ride, there have been five rated..."
