King in the North
[Link] 'Game of Thrones' Delivers a Near-Flawless Episode | Rolling Stone -
It was an emotionally merciless episode throughout. Delirious from pain and heat and 17 years of bitterness, Jaime reveals to Brienne that he slew the Mad King to stop him from burning King’s Landing to the ground, but refused to tell anyone because he was so outraged by Ned Stark’s pre-judgment that he couldn’t even bear to defend himself with the truth. “By what right does the wolf judge the lion?” he demands, weeping through the dirt and shit caked on his face. As if his system can’t withstand honesty he then passes out, his nude body cradled against Brienne’s own in a shot that rivals last episode’s Jaime-and-his-hand tableau. “My name is Jaime,” he insists, at long last deciding to be less, and therefore more, than his reputation would make him out to be.
I reviewed last night’s episode of Game of Thrones, which I absolutely loved, for Rolling Stone. All-time top-five episode.
but look at that face he seemed like such a trustworthy fellow
“You little bastard.”
