EPISODE 2: Home

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). Episode one was a bit of a slow burn, and opening couple moves on the chess board, but tonight kicked everything into high gear baby! JON SNOW IS ALIVE BITCHES! Itís funny, everyone attached to the showís been all like ĎJon Snowís dead, dumbasses, you saw it yourselfí, but the second I heard they werenít giving out screeners this year, I knew that had to be the reason. Nobody wanted the grand reveal spoiled, and letís be honest, it wouldíve been so good on you team HBO. I was on eggshells the whole time though, thereís that tiny voice in my head saying Ďwhat if he really is deadí, well that voice can f*ck off, because my favorite character is back and shitís about to get wild!

Okay (deep breath), now that THATís covered, letís get into the rest of the episode, because lots more went down. Letís start with Kingís Landing. First, I loved Franken-mountain smashing dudeís skull in for telling the wrong story, I laughed for about five minutes. You f*ck with Cersei, he kills you. You talk about Cersei, he kills you. You breathe inappropriately, he kills you. Best. Bodyguard. Ever. We got another Cersei in mourning scene with Tommen, and I didnít mind it, because again, the tears are about gone and rage will follow. Enough rage to burn down the joint, Iím sure. Thatís when things are going to get interesting. Of course, Jaimeís conversation with The High Sparrow was entertaining as well. I knew he wouldnít kill him, not right now, but his days are numbered and Jaime certainly let him know as much. Looking forward to that little weasel Lancel getting his face crushed too.

No Dany tonight, but Tyrion sure had his moment to shine with the dragons. I loved the (you got THIS, Tyrion) look on Varysí face as he stood by the entrance. Canít say I blame him. Sansa shared a moment of revelation with Brienne, and Theon decides to go home (that ought to be good). Aria gets the shit beat out of her (again), but thank Christ Jaqen Híghar finally shows up to end all that nonsense. And speaking of people showing up at the right time, Tormund and the wildlings show up just in time to help Davos protect Jonís body. That was a great scene too, mainly because I really like Tormund, heís a cool character and Iím pumped to see him and Jon Snow fighting side by side again.

GAME OF THRONES SEASON 6ís second episode gave a great character back to us, but they took some key players in the process. Roose Bolton (who Iím not shedding any tears over) getting shanked by Ramsay isnít something I saw coming, but it sure as hell doesnít surprise me either. But damn, bro, feeding the baby and her mother to the dogs? You cold as ice. Iím calling it right now, Jon vs. Ramsay, make that shit happen! Meanwhile, Theonís dad gets thrown off the ricketiest bridge Iíve ever seen (seriously, I wouldnít set foot on that damn thing on the brightest day, let alone in a damn storm) by his brother, implying that thereís still big things coming out of the Iron Islands at some point. Lastly, we welcome Bran back (yayÖsort of). Although the flashback was cool and all, like Meera said, they gots to get out of that cave. I wonít harp on him too much though, because that clip from the trailer with him and white walker king looks hella badass.

SEX/NUDITY: No crusty old witches tonight, you sick bastards.

VIOLENCE: The violence itself was sparse (but good), but the promise of great violence is definitely in the air. That said, we got some stabbing, bridge tossing and a fantastic face crush.

MOST EPIC SCENE: JON SNOW, JON SNOW, JON SNOW. Yes, Iím still very excited.

FINAL VERDICT :

TELL US WHAT YOU THOUGHT OF THIS EPISODE BELOW!

Extra Tidbit: Iím now more than curious to see who the Ironborn side with.
