Favorite quotes from Game of Thrones: The Laws of Gods and Men

"The Laws of Gods and Men" ripped up my heart. Tyrion headed to trial, and we spend most of the episode watching it unravel. Though Game of Thrones often evokes feelings of sadness, last night's episode hit hard.

Spoilers after the picture.


Favorite quotes

“It is a big and beautiful world. Most of us live and die in the same corner where we were born and never get to see any of it. I don’t want to be most of us.” - Oberyn Martell

“I’m guilty of a far more monstrous crime. I am guilty of being a dwarf." - Tyrion Lannister

"Across the narrow sea, your books are filled with words like 'usurper' and 'madman' and 'blood right.' Here our books are filled with numbers. We prefer the stories they tell.” - Tycho Nestoris

"I did not kill Joffrey, but I wish that I had. Watching your vicious bastard die gave me more relief than a thousand lying whores! I wish I was the monster you think I am. I wish I had enough poison for the whole pack of you. I would gladly give my life to watch you all swallow it!" - Tyrion Lannister

"These meetings aren't always going to be this early, are they?" - Oberyn Martell

"As long as they can hurt our prince with impunity, the word Ironborn means nothing!" - Yara Greyjoy

"A dragon hasn't won a war in 300 years. Armies win them all the time." - Tywin Lannister

Random thoughts
- Prince Martell has quickly become one of my favorite characters. I love his humor but mostly, I adore Pedro Pascal's performance.

- I miss the Littlefinger and Varys conversations from the first season, but Oberyn speaking with Varys was a fine substitute. It was a reminder that Varys' end game is anybody's guess and also showed Oberyn's more irreverent side. Actually, that's the side of his personality we see the most. They're good verbal sparring partners.

- You can read about how much Dany's dragons are growing and becoming a problem, but it's different to see it in action. I have no idea how she's going to manage to control them and keep her children from turning on people.

- I liked seeing Dany ruling her subjects. She shows compassion when necessary, but that may come back to bite her.

- One more note on Dany: word of her accomplishments is spreading. If they're speaking of her during a Small Council meeting, you know they're worried. Is it time for her to arrive in Westeros yet?

- As much as I don't care for Theon - and I really, really don't - it was a punch in the gut to watch Yara (I still think of her as Asha) leave him behind and say he's dead. After all she went through to get him back, he was just too broken. Seems like it seals his fate.

- Hey, Mark Gatiss. And hey, addition of Braavos to the opening credits. The best part about Stannis and Davos' trip to the Iron Bank was Davos passioned plea. Right or wrong, he believes in Stannis. His loyalty after what he's seen Stannis do (namely, listening to Melisandre) is nothing short of astounding.

- My heart broke for Tyrion. His trial deserved as much time as they spent on it, but I also wonder if the extended focus is a way to slow down pacing and give GRRM more time to catch up. Hmm. Whatever the reasoning, the trial was riveting. Peter Dinklage consistently delivers tremendous performances, but this may be his best of the series yet. His confession. My gods. I wanted to punch everyone who stood against him and hug Jaime for trying. Trial by combat is definitely his move, but it's sad that he was forced into using that card again.

  1. While Tyrion used the trial by combat again, that complaint should be thrust at GRRM. It is though, akin to a soap opera using amnesia as a plot point each season. Maybe they would have forgotten about the amnesia each time...

    Peter DInklage deserves awards for that performance at Tyrion's trial. Amazing work.

  2. I liked Twyin's command to Jaime to "marry and father children named Lannister!" which imo shows us that he knows the truth about his kids.
