Game of Thrones – What Is Dead, May Never Die Review

There are a few things in Game of Thrones that really irritate me, to the point of being annoyed for them simply being on the screen. Theon Greyjoy is number 1 on this list.

For those who haven’t read the book, you will know what I mean soon enough and from this episode probably have a pretty good idea anyway. With Theon heading back to Pyke in the last episode to try to gain his fathers fleet to back Robb Stark in his war with the Lannisters, he gets there and finds that he is not wanted, nor loved by his father. In his haste to win his fathers love, Theon completely betrays Robb, his friend for the past 10 years, the man to whom he pledged his loyalty to at the beginning of the war. Theon even contemplates telling Robb about his fathers plans to attack the North while he was away, but decides to burn the letter and betray his friend. I really dislike Theon…a lot.

Back in the Seven Kingdoms, we have Catelyn Stark arriving at Renly Baratheon’s camp in the middle of a tournament. It is here that was are introduced to the Maiden Brienne of Tarth, who defeats the Knight of Flowers in single combat to become part of Renly’s Kingsguard. I think they got the perfect actress to play Brienne, she is absolutely huge when standing next to Catelyn Stark and very man like, matching the description in the book, good casting here. Meanwhile, Renly is shown to find it impossible to pleasure his wife Margaery Tyrell, who comes clean that she knows that Renly is gay and sleeping with Ser Loras, however she doesn’t react the way you might think, telling Renly she will do what it takes for him to impregnate her and keep their enemies at bay.
