So I don’t watch GoT live usually. But I always like to make sure my trusty friend Brian is available when I do watch because he’s read the books. And I like when he watches it first because he can warn me if anything truly terrible ala The Red Wedding is about to happen.
Anyway, last week I read a thing on Buzzfeed that was something like “73 things I learned from watching last nights Game of Thrones” and was like – wait, I do that too! But mine also have questions and sometimes answers. So I thought just for fun I’d post my gchat that I had with Brian while watching GoT. I took out some of the extra “me” and “brian” things and the time stamps just to make it a little more conversational but anyway, enjoy! I also edited out the other brief work related parts of the conversation, so you’re welcome. I also added some italics because it drives me crazy that gchat doesn’t offer that feature. Or text messages for that matter. I need italics!
me: also I just started GoT, so expect sudden changes in conversation
Brian: they cut out another storyline
me: so grey worm is not dead?
me: I don’t know why I didn’t think dany would be too dramatic about barry. of course she would be. esp after the cute story about her brother (who I thought was her father).
I hate when the closed captions just say “speaking valaryian”
Brian: “our translator doesn’t know what one”
me: how did she decide which guys to feed to the dragons? were those harpy guys?
me: dany is a bad bitch… and that was graphic.
Brian: like badass
or bad ruler? because, both?
Brian: tell me that after the episode…
me: why did the one guy say valar margoulis?
Brian: it’s like “I accept my death”
me: oh ok
I thought it was code for something
Brian: but yea, I don’t think it’s how you use that
I actually meant to look that up
me: you should and then tell me about it. kthanks.
Brian: when I heard that I was like “Fuck! He’s an assassin!”
me: yeah me too, or that he’d run into the dragons like, suicide style
how did she decide which guys to feed to the dragons? were those harpy guys?
Brian: I think to scare them into revealing who sent the harpies maybe?
me: so does sam just run the library? that’s his job now?
“Like a hundred year old man, freezing to death” I feel that way too Master Aemon. I mean, not in this moment but if you’d asked me in Febuary…
yea, sam’s the nerd of the wall
me: “Kill the boy and let the man be born” – yeah Aemon! Tell Jon Snow!
what’s gingy beards name again?
Brian: at the wall?
me: yeah… the free folk guy
Brian: thormund giantsbane. something like that
me: the day I fight with the crows is the day my people cut my guts from my belly and make me eat them… well that’s graphic. and mance is dead right?
Brian: he’s the guy they burned alive (that JS put out of his misery)
that’s what I thought. Ok
gingy beard is creepy, but I like Jon Snow calling him a coward.
he’s kinda a badass
me: Jon Snow has never been my favorite, but I do like him as lord commander more than in previous seasons
“make peace to save your people” translation: Don’t be a stubborn ass.
why would the lord commander leave the… wherever they are? where are they right now? Castle Black?
so jon has to go north of the wall AGAIN? come on! Ugh.
Also I thought Stannis left? (him correcting that knight – “Fewer” pmp.
Where are you and why aren’t you answering my burning questions…
Brian: he does in this episode
and now jons asking for the kids opinion? wow. didn’t realize this kid had such an opinion. is he the one that killed Lady Ginger? at least jon can sort of relate to the kid?
Brian: oh yea!
I forgot about that
me: Also was this the first mention of “Winter is Coming” this season? Gross. We get it. It’s coming. WE GET IT.
me: Brienne… she’s one of the tops on my list of “people that can’t die”
ugh… if and when she dies that’s gonna be a tough one.
me: so how does Brienne think this hermit guy can get into the castle?
Brian: no idea. I didn’t get that.
me: so weird. I was waiting for him to say “now you’re gonna die, lady”
Brian: I mean, people loved the starks
me: because that’s basically what I assume with everyone
Brian: so maybe just assuming?
me: Ramsey is such a tool. Seriously, fuck that guy.
me: I’m surprised he’s not just throwing that chick out the window to be honest.
Brian: oh, you’re at the scene
me: I’m scared to watch
Brian: oh game of thrones porn…
me: more like a rape scene
if I were her I’d throw myself out that window
that’s the same chick that tricked theon
me: oh yeah? so that’s why she’s not running away or killing herself… she’s as messed up as Theon.
I love that old lady that’s hooking up Sansa
she knows what’s up
Brian: the north remembers
me: I collected up some questions for you.
me: What is up with Ramsay’s chick… trust her? don’t trust her? something is not right… is she team stark?
What is at the end of this dog cage?
God damnit what is at the end of this cage? Direwolf? Dead person?
Oh no shit. Reek. Theon!
Why would Miranda show Sansa, Theon? I don’t understand. What’s her angle? And how has Sansa not seen him yet? Has she not been near Ramsey lately?
Theon’s story line is bananas. Ramsey is totes the new Joffrey (see above meme), but way crazier. I wonder if he only forgave Theon because now he’s gonna punish the Miranda girl?
Why do Stannis and Bolton look so similar? I get them confused all the time.
me: Sansa doesn’t believe that Theon killed her brothers, does she? What kind of name is Walda? It’s like they wanted something they think is a fat ladies name, thought Wanda but didn’t think it sounded Game of Thrones enough? Oh how about Walda? I realize it’s probably because she was one of Walder Frey’s daughters but I still like my previous theory.
ummm, I have no idea about Myranda
I don’t think she’s in the books at all
if she is, it’s minor
me: right on
Brian: and yea, Theon’s storyline is bananas
me: Only because I hate Ramsey so much, I love the way Mr.Bolton fucks with him
me: this conversation about Walda’s pregnancy is hilarious
me: “I’m your son, until a better alternative comes around” hahahaha
Brian: this story is fucked up
me: I can only imagine
I mean, Ramsey isn’t just created… you have to have at least one fucked up parent to end up that way, right?
Reese isn’t a saint
me: I was just about to say I thought his name was Roose
but I like a nickname
maybe I’ll start calling him Reese’s
Brian: no. I like reese’s too much
me: For the record I think the stuff Gilly knows, is way more important than anything Sam knows
book learnin… what’s it good for anyway? haha
Brian: saving the world?
me: he doesn’t even know how dragonglass works
This convo about white walkers makes Sam look like he’s one of those crazy people that finally gets to tell someone important his theories, and then is shocked when the person agrees. I mean I basically think Sam is the Crazy Eyes of Game of Thrones… if that can be a thing.
Brian: HA! yes!
me: davos is one of my faves. I wish his part was bigger.
stoneface girl, she’s like the arya of this family
how old is she supposed to be? 10?
Brian: yea prob round there
me: so Stannis is leaving and Jon Snow is leaving?
grey worm! You’re alive! If anyone had to live I’m glad it’s him. even if he seems pissed about it. YES!!! GREY WORM AND MYSSANDRI 4EVAH (you know I like the character if I know their name).
me: to kill all the masters or not to kill all the masters…
poor dany doesn’t even have barry to ask what to do…
it’s times like these that Jorah should show up
Brian: I think he will
although I dunno
I go back and forth
me: so her answer to killing everyone is to re-open the fighting gates?
but is she gonna kill everyone?
so she’s gonna marry this guy?
is this what you were talking about last week?
Brian: yea but they changed it
like, in the book, she’s basically forced to marry him
it’s not her idea at all
me: by who?
Brian: and the dude is a scheming asshat
Brian: no, the guy she marries
me: oh ok
so in the book, it’s not that guy?
Brian: he shows up and is like “if I stop the harpies for a month, will you marry me”
I think it’s the same guy, but different character
if that makes sense
like, not a sniveling guy being used by Dany
me: like the guys character in the book has a different attitude
me: did Dany start in Valeryia?
have we seen it before?
Brian: I don’t think so
me: they just all speak it then?
So basically this would be like an american visiting ancient greece?
Brian: yea exactly
me: and then a dragon flies overhead…
of course Tyrion talks about “what remains” and I’m like – where have I heard of this quote before…
oh right, one of the real housewives wrote a book called “What Remains”
at first I was thinking it was some quote from LOST
I actually love that scene
me: it’s very well shot with the dragon flying overhead and whatnot.
ok well the stone men ARE TERRIFYING
I was not expecting that
who’re they gonna touch? Jorah or Tyrion?
and just touching them will get your stone body?
what’s the deal?
OMG I AM FREAKING OUT!!!
WHAT THE FUCK
one of them definitely got touched! I’m sure of it.
me: jesus I thought that was gonna be a cliffhanger
glad to see T$ is alive
greyscale is fucking terrifying.
and what happened to the boat? did they just jump ship to escape them?
are they safe where they are?
SO MANY questions!
Jorahs face makes me feel like they aren’t safe.
oh because he got the greyscale
I should’ve known
and there aren’t a world of maesters around to save him like they saved baby stannis
well that was an intense episode.
yea, I’m not sure where they ended up
in the book that scene is with a whole group they’ve cut out
and it isn’t jorah that gets greyscale
me: I don’t want Jorah to have greyscale
that makes me sad
me: maybe something will happen that will stop it from spreading. If this was written by any other person I’d believe they had a chance… although if this wasn’t in the book maybe there is still a chance? how fast does it even spread?
Brian: I was reading an article about how the show jumped the shark last week
by killing selmy
me: I can be optimistic about such a hopeless circumstance, right?
Brian: it goes slow
me: I hardly think the show jumped the shark with that… but I never read the books
so you know, there’s that.
Brian: I think the other guy got some help somehow but I can’t remember
And, if you want to see Buzzfeeds probably better version of this (this chick at least knows/spells everyones name right), you can go here 🙂
