Episode Recap: Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 4: "Book of the Stranger"

"Threesome with Daenerys? Not gonna happen, bro."

Fans of the show since it first aired in 2010 will be treated to one of the most dramatic moments in the show’s entire run: the reunion of Sansa Stark and Lord Commander Jon Snow, two children of Winterfell separated since Season 1. The question to ask after this is: What happens when Arya Stark gets reunited with her siblings? Will she get to enjoy a group hug? Or will she remain adamant that “a girl has no name”?

A Lord Commander has no man-bun.

Since we’re on the subject of nostalgia, is there anyone feeling nostalgic for a teat-sucking adolescent (who’s now orphaned, of course)? Let’s hope not. So thank goodness we only have a very short reunion scene between Lord Arryn and the devious Lord Baelish. Oh, I hate you, Littlefinger. I liked you better when you were in The Wire.

Tyrion Lannister is one of my favourite characters in Game of Thrones, because he used to be on the side of good. Now, however, he is still my favourite character, but he is starting to become morally ambiguous. Like why would he grant a seven-year grace period for the abolition of slavery. But with Queen Daenerys out of action indefinitely, Tyrion’s actions should have mirrored what Daenerys would have done. And the Mother of Dragons wouldn’t have given any grace period whatsoever.

"WWDD: What would Daenerys do. Not What would a dwarf do."

I’m a little bit worried about the Lannister-Tyrell feud. There definitely is friction between the two houses. Margaery and Cersei both want the title of “queen”. Cersei and the Lady Olenna hate each other’s guts. The Hand of the King is a Lannister, but his sympathies lie with the Tyrells. It seems only the Tommen-Margaery connection shows any semblance of good in this troubled place known as King’s Landing.

Meanwhile, the bromance between Jorah Mormont and Daario Naharis seems to be heating up. Kidding. I don’t think any two straight males who want to bone the same woman real bad can truly be friends. Yes, despite the shared experience of combat and rescue missions to rescue their queen.

A queen who, as it turns out, is in no need of saving at all.

God save those breasts.


I almost cried during that Sansa and Snow reunion. Another terrific episode.
