After a long wait, Game of thrones returned with its most anticipated 4th season to HBO. Most of the important character appeared in this premier episode. The episode opened up with Tywin Lannister melting a huge Valerian Steel Sword, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out who was the previous owner of that sword. I guess it’s another blow to a certain big house in the realm.
|Winter is coming|
Jaime is adapting to king's Landing while his twin sister Cersei is giving him a cold shoulder blaming him not doing enough to come back to her earlier. Joffrey is being an annoying prick like always. Tyrion is back to the status of the disposable Lannister, greeting a new important character, Martel Oberyn Martell the Red Viper from Dorne. For some reason they made the Red Viper gay or at least bisexual. I guess they need to do stuff like that to shock the audience every once in a while. With all that said about the Red Viper’s sexual orientation Oberyn Martell had a pretty good entrance in the whore house , with the Lannister soldiers and with Tyrion himself explaining to Tyrion but mostly for the audience of the show why did he come to King’s Landing. Unfortunately Deanerys had a waste of space of a scene that achieved mostly nothing, well maybe except the dead slave girl that was crucified, who served its purpose. Sansa had a first, well it’s the 2nd contact with ser Dontos. John Snow is back to castle Black standing trial for treason in one of the most entertaining scenes of the episode and all that thanks to one sentence directed to Jonna Slynt .The best was saved for last. the scene with Aria and Sandor Clegane was the best in the premiere episode. Their scene had everything from comedy “Aria: He killed Loomy, Klegane: What the fuck is a Loomy” to serious conversation between Klegane and Polliver which included too many chicken metaphors and ended with a sweet taste of a revenge achieving another step in Aria’s transformation.
The premiere episode of the new season was everything we were waiting for and it is only the beginning there are plenty of great things to come.
