Favorite quotes from Game of Thrones: Dark Wings, Dark Words

How can an episode of television go so fast?! The end credits of Game of Thrones surprise me every freaking time. They covered a lot of ground in Dark Wings, Dark Words and introduced new characters and creatures. Though we didn't see everyone, plenty of characters did have solid moments and fantastic lines. You can read my favorite quotes from Dark Wings, Dark Words below.

Beware: spoilers lurk after the image.


"Once the cow's been milked, there's no squirting the milk back up her udder so here we are to see things through." - Olenna Tyrell

“You weren’t Renly’s type, I’m afraid. He preferred curly-haired little girls like Loras Tyrell. You’re far too much man for him.” - Jaime Lannister

"I try to know as many people as I can. never know which one you’ll need." - Tyrion Lannister

“It’s a shame the throne wasn’t made out of cocks. They’d have never gotten [Renly] off of it.” - Jaime Lannister

"Some people will always need help. That doesn’t mean they’re not worth helping." - Meera Reed

"He's a monster." - Sansa Stark (stupid, stupid Sansa)

“No flowers! I’m the king!” - Joffrey Lannister

"There’s no story so good a drink won’t make it better." - Thoros of Myr

I can't resist sharing some of my initial reactions to the episode. I don't remember much about A Storm of Swords so I can't pick apart differences from the book but some more general thoughts:

- Brienne and Margaery were my favorite parts of the episode. Brienne and Jaime have excellent chemistry and I loved watching her take him down. And watching Margaery manipulate Joffrey and make Cersei jealous is was so good.

- Olenna Tyrell is just as I pictured she would be.

- I'm glad the Reeds are finally here but their entrance was underwhelming and I bet confusing for people who haven't read the books.

- Bran really grew up between seasons!

- What the hell was up with Catelyn's speech about Jon? It's no secret she has never loved Jon Snow, but the whole blaming herself because she didn't follow through on her promise? I can't see Catelyn Stark ever believing she could give the Stark name to the bastard her husband brought home. Ever. I'm disappointed with the way they've handled her character.
That said, it was wonderfully acted by Michelle Fairley.

What did you guys think of the episode?

  1. I haven't really cared for show Catelyn since S2. The actress is doing a great job and I love her but too much has been taken from her and given to show Robb.

    1. Yes, the actress is wonderful but I feel like they've made her weaker.

  2. ***POSSIBLE SPOILERS***

    I love Catelyn though I'm a little "meh" with where they're taking her storywise. I can see why she would make some of the decisions she's made, but I'm all about strong women, and she seemed to start off strong. Then again I haven't read the books so I'm not sure where she's supposed to go or how she's written to be.

    Brienne and Jaime were great. I love the actor that plays Jaime (anyone see New Amsterdam? LOVED that show.) so when I saw him in this series, I thought YAY! Then my friends who read the books were like "Um, no." Then later I was told that he redeems himself or at least you figure out why he is the way he is.

    Margaery... she seems to have a head on her shoulders (as does her Grandmother who is fabulous). I think everything I've seen the actress in has always been scantily clad or barely dressed... what is up with that?

    Oh Sansa... when is she going to have her moment. And when is Joffrey gonna get smacked down?

    What was the deal with Jon Snow's mother again? I know the general gist of what happened - Ned was away, slept with a chic, took the child, brought him home - but I never got more of an explanation than that.

    And Tyrion is awesomesauce, but that goes without saying for him as well as Peter Dinklage.

    I like the Reeds. When I saw the clip of all the new actors/characters they were introducing to this season, I was happy when I saw most of them though I was really happy to see Ciarin Hinds, Mackenzie Crook, and Thomas Brodie-Sangster. I wasn't confused by the Reeds arrival though I do find them interesting.

    And yes, Bran grew A LOT! My friends and I thought it was cute how they changed to a cart since he got too big to be carried piggy back.

    And Theon... I want him to be tortured more. Is that possible? He drives me crazy. Not as crazy as Joffrey, but grrr... I don't like him.

    1. You're right about Natalie Dormer; I didn't consider it before but she often doesn't wear much. ;)


      As far as the books, we don't know who Jon Snow's mother is. There are lots of fan theories but not any absolute clues as far as I know.

      I'm glad to hear that the Reeds showing up didn't seem out of the blue. I'm just glad we get to see the characters; I was concerned when they didn't show up last season (they are in book two).

      And Theon! I have all the feelings towards him and none of them are nice.

  5. WOW!!!
    This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experience and i need to share this great testimony.
    About how i get my ex back after a breakup.
    I never believed it, because i never heard nor learn anything about it before.
    Hey guys my wife and I have been married for 15 years. For over five years I have been dealing with jealousy issues because of flirting and her having emotional type affairs with other men. I felt like my masculinity was in question and if I said the way she was acting bothered me, it seemed to make matters worse or I was accused of being controling. During this period I did state I wanted a divorce if the behavior was not going to end: texting men a night, leaving for the weekend without letting me know where she was going or not responding to messages. We do have a son and basically it's been him and I for the last year on the weekends. She disconnected completely from being a good wife and mother. In April she said she wanted a separation and I said no we need to get into marriage counseling. We did try that, but she was not very responsive and didn't give any effort. Afterward she was adamant about separation and divorce. I continued to say no and that we needed to save our family. She presented a separation agreement and I had to hire a lawyer. Because of the above behavior my lawyer suggested a private investigator. The investigator discovered my wife was having an affair with a close friend of the family who also is married with children. We know the extended families. I feel like I should tell this man's wife about what happened. This adultery has devastated me emotionally, I feel betrayed and I'm physically drained. I know my wife is passionate in terms of her sexuality, and I can't get the thought of them out of my head. It makes me question my own manhood, and I feel very inferior or that he must be a better lover or what ever. The problem is my wife pursued him. She would go to him and she lured him into this adultery. I felt this was coming for some time and could not stop it. She was not only lying to me but also to our son about what she was doing and where she was going. My family is important, my son loves her and as crazy as it sounds so do I. Can you respond with a course of action on how to proceed? I was still have a very huge place in my heart for her. so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my wife came to me and apologized for the wrongs she did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I, my son and my wife are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com or call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.
