The Seven-Pointed Star #3 - 'The Queen's Justice' (7.3)

The Septological Ways This Episode Works

Episode Notes

SPOILERS!!! FOR ALL PUBLISHED BOOKS IN #GRRM'S A Song of Ice and Fire AS WELL AS ALL TELEVISED EPISODES OF HBO'S *Game of Thrones...

Born amidst salt and smoke... Just off the Long Island Expressway... And beneath a bleeding star...

This week, #TPTWP bring to you the 3rd edition of The Seven-Pointed Star and run episode 7.3, The Queen's Justice, through the old Seven-Pointed ringer and observe what comes out.

The Lord of Light-ning Round this week pits John against Sansa Stark, and it's going to be a BLOOD BATH!!!

Markers

04:53 - The Jaime Lannister School of Hard Knocks - LIke it or not, Jaime learned a lot of lessons in warcraft, siegecraft, politics, and humility the hard way- failure and horrible consequences.

17:16 - A Spy in Our Midst... Maybe? - Is there a Lanniser spy in the Targaryen camp or is Jaime totally telegraphing every move his brother makes?

24:44 - Queen In The North - Is Sansa equipped to rule the North like her father? Or implode the North like her mother?

27:56 - The Creeper In The North - The second Stark reunion is not nearly as impactful as the first. Since Bran has crossed through The Wall, he has creeped out The Lord Commander of The Night's Watch, The Queen In The North, and he is gunning for Jon Snow. Meera Reed is like, "It was fun Bran, but I gotta bounce. Greywater Watch is a moving castle so... you know... I don't want to miss it. You understand, right? I guess... send me a rave? Or better yet, I'll send you a raven when I get settled... if we even have ravens..."

36:28 - Like Father Like Son - Jon Snow's similarities to what Daenerys knows of Rhaegar Targaryen.

44:02 - Dude! Where Are My War Commanders?!? - Daenerys had experienced warcraftsmen in Ser Barristan Selmy, Ser Jorah Mormont, and Daario Naharis. Whoops!

52:34 - Tony Soprano, Walter White, Cersei Lannister... Follow Cersei's character-arc. Is she an antagonist? Or is she a complex, premium cable, prestige drama, HBO, Emmy-nominated character? Regardless, she has gone off the tracks!

The Princes That Were Promised are John and SeannieWan. Every week they tear apart Westeros and sift through the pieces to bring their Leal and Loyal Subjects the history of the Realm and The Known World from both George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO's adaptation, Game of Thrones.
