Game of Thrones Season 4 Recap – Episode 2: The Lion and The Rose #KingJoffrey

King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) has a challenging time in Season 4, Episode 2 of HBO's Game of Thrones

The Lion and The Rose

My Season 4, Episode 2 recap of HBO’s Game of Thrones is bought to you by the letter C and the number of times it occurs throughout. Please step away now if you don’t like the C word…

Now, I had heard rumours about this episode. A wedding to rival the red wedding, one that went by the title of the purple wedding. I had mulled over what this meant and had decided that a crapload more people were going to die. I had also decided that purple was the colour of choking or – more in the style of Game of Thrones – murder via mass poisoning. A cautionary ‘don’t drink the Kool Aid’ tale - medieval style.

What I got was SO much better than that!

What we got was a dead King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) – so  thank you very much George R. R. Martin.

As a result of this, most of what else happened in this episode was forgotten in the reaction my hubby and I had to the demise of King Justin Beiber Joffrey. First we were like, ‘oh look, the poor little shit can’t even eat pie without mummy’s help - hope the bastard chokes.‘ Then, when actual choking occurred, we started to fist pump the air. We still didn’t believe it though, spouting the fact that George R. R. Martin holds dear those characters we hate the most.

Then Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) cried.

So we threw our hands up in glee.

We probably shouldn’t be so happy at the death of a character, but let’s face it, it’s Joffrey. The kid is a cunt. Sir Cuntsalot would be a better name for him. Seriously, he is the only dick in the word that the term ‘fucktard’ just doesn’t quite cut it for.

Let’s just take a moment to savour the moment:

Bitch, get me some wine!

Mummy, I need burping…

King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) is dead in Season 4, Episode 2 of HBO's Game of Thrones #purplewedding

Why are people so unkind?

About two seconds after that, the joy started to fade.

That was the moment when Cersei pointed her pointy little bitch finger at Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) and proclaimed him the murderer. Yeah, George R. R. Martin, we need to have a talk…

If Tyrion Dies We Riot meme

So, normally, this is where I’d put the ‘WTF moments‘, but since we’ve already covered that. How about…

That other stuff that is probably important:

  • We find out the fate of Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen). Thanks to Ramsay Snow (Iwan Rheon) he is now fucktarded beyond all recognition – or is he? Seems he was pretty sad at the mention of Robb Stark (Richard Madden) being dead… Honestly, even though this boy has been as cunty as King Joffrey, I am starting to feel sorry for the poor metaphorical bastard. As a result of Ramsey dismembering Theon, there are now people out there who realise there is more than one Stark left alive.
  • Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) joins left-handed fight club thanks to Tyrion. But you know the first rule of fight club… Although, seriously, why doesn’t he use his golden hand as a weapon now? He could easily catch a sword midflight with that sucker!
  • Speaking of Tyrion, he gets treated like a dog at the wedding, but in a brief moment (when Sansa reaches down and retrieves the goblet that Sir Cuntsalot dropped in order to make Tyrion grovel) we discover just how awesome a match him and Lady Sansa (Sophie Turner) could be.
  • And what of Tyion’s lover, Shae (Sibel Kekilli)? Once he realises that Shae is a dead woman walking (thanks to that little dobber last week), he breaks her heart and sends her away on a ship.
  • Melisandre (Carice van Houten) – remember her? Yep, the evil shadow baby birthing bitch is back. Needless to say, she is still a bitch…
  • Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) has another vision and now knows where they all need to go.

So who killed Joffrey?

Cersei claims it’s Tyrion, but we all know it probably wasn’t since he was ordered to get Joffrey a goblet of wine and then we watched as he walked over and got the king’s goblet from the wedding table. Was it Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer)? Perhaps even her mother, since she was seated right next to the wine cup that Tyrion retrieved. Or was the poison actually in the pie? Was it, therefore, a plot to kill more than just the king? And then we had that little snippet where the court jester told Sansa to leave now in order to save herself – was he the murderer? My favourite theory, however, goes to a Facebook friend of mine who thinks that maybe Cersei was attempting to poison Margaery and then accidentally poisoned her own son!

Let me know what you thought of this episode by commenting below! Please be aware though, that I have not read the books yet, so do not want to be spoiled for future episodes :-D

Game of Thrones Season 4 Premiere Recap – Episode 1: Two Swords

And so two swords are forged from Ned Stark's (Sean Bean) one in Season 4, Episode 1 of HBO's True Blood

Two Swords

Welcome to my Season 4 recaps of HBO’s Game of Thrones. If you don’t like swearing, please step away now. Ditto for spoilers…

We start Episode 1, entitled Two Swords, with the forging of the aforementioned swords – using none other than Ned Stark’s (Sean Bean) glorious Ice. So large it is big enough to forge two swords – and yet even a sword of that size could not save the Stark clan… This is a point that makes Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance) as smug as a pig in shit as he creates a new sword for his eldest non-crippled son Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). So ha ha, the joke’s on you Tywin when it turns out Jaime is only one-handed now… karma’s a bitch baby!

Speaking of poor old Jaime, it turns out that his dear sister, Cersei (Lena Headey), has given him a golden handshake and even for all his “Fuck you dad, I’m staying on the Knight’s Guard to save the remaining shreds of my honour” it amounts to the fact that Jaime has given up his birthright and a safe place at Casterly Rock for a woman who doesn’t want him any more.

So incest is okay, but being handless is not, okay Cersei…

Jack Gleeson stars as King Joffrey in Season 4, Episode 1 of HBO's Game of Thrones

What do you mean this dress doesn’t make me look manly?!

In this episode Jaime also gets scorned by the little shit that is his own bastard son, Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson), seems getting taken prisoner and held captive against your will is not good enough for ANY of the Lannisters…

Oh course, then Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) gets on the bandwagon and tells Jaime he’s an oath breaker yet again because he never returned Arya (Maisie Williams) and Sansa (Sophie Turner) back to their mother, Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley), Right-o then…

So what else happens in this episode?

Well, Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) is having to deal with a new wife and his established lover. Poor Sansa is fretting over the annihilation of her entire family (or so she and everyone else seems to think). While no one can get through to her, the drunk whose life she saved seems pretty impressed and manages to chip through her exterior by presenting her with the only thing he has left of worth: his mother’s necklace.

Sansa (Sophie Turner) and Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) play unhappy couples in Season 4, Episode 1 of HBO's Game of Thrones

Didn’t your mother ever tell you to eat your greens Sansa? Mine did – and I didn’t – now look how that all turned out…

Speaking of necklaces, Joffrey’s bride to be, Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) is trying to sort out what she will wear, jewellery-wise, on her wedding day. Her canny mother is not happy with any of the choices and sends all the servants off to find the best of the lot – effectively reducing the jewellery availability to other noblewomen down to a meagre level.

And what of the mother of dragons, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke)? Well it seems that growing dragons are a little hard to handle and this thought is only just occurring to the Khalessi. And, yes, they are STILL on their epic journey from nothing to supreme ruler of all the lands…

Emilia Clarke stars as the Khalessi we all love the most, Daenerys Targaryen, in Season 4, Episode 1 of HBO's Game of Thrones

It seems dragons will NOT be told to mind their mothers…

Jon Snow (Kit Harington) is back from his adventures across the wall and is nearly beheaded for his treason. Luckily someone realises that if every crow lost his head from bedding a woman than there would be no one left on the wall…

Speaking of the other side of the wall, it seems Ygritte (Rose Leslie) is also in trouble for not killing Jon Snow.

Finally, we finish up this episode with some long deserved justice for Arya as she finally gets to retrieve her sword, Needle, from the bastard that took it from her.

WTF moments

  • Oberyn (also known as the Red Viper and played by Pedro Pascal) stabbing a man’s hand just because he was singing the Lannister’s song.
  • Jaime’s hilarious golden hand wave.
  • Tyrion saying no to sex.
  • The handmaid dobbing on Shae (Sibel Kekilli) and Tyrion’s anti-tryst.
  • Arya’s retrieval of Needle from Poliver (Andy Kellegher). Yes, revenge is certainly a dish best served cold! And little Arya is irretrievably no longer redeemable as a lady (not that that is a bad thing).
  • Sandor (Rory McCann) Clegane’s overuse of the word ‘cunt’. And using it to such extreme that some of the phrasings didn’t even make any sense any more.

VIDEO: Game of Thrones is Coming!



The only good thing about The Walking Dead finishing is the commencement of HBO’s Game of Thrones!

There is just enough time between now and the Season 4 premiere on April 6th 2014 for a Game of Thrones marathon. Who else is obsessed enough to watch the first three seasons all in a row to get ready for Season 4?

And, have you read the books yet? While I had planned to read at least the first three of George R. R. Martin’s novels, so far, I have only finished the first. So, yeah, who lives and dies will still be a mystery for me going into Season 4.

Is anyone planning a premiere party? Perhaps a huge medieval style banquet? Just watch the music choice though or you could have a massacre on your hands…

This year I will be recapping Game of Thrones, so make sure you check back here every Monday to find out what I thought of each episode.

But while you wait, here’s some promo videos to get you in the mood:

THE WALKING DEAD: Conspiracy Theories for Season 5

TWD Season 5 Conspiracy Theories

So, yeah, it’s time to start up a new conspiracy theories page for Season 5 of AMC’s The Walking Dead. The Season 4 page is still up and being updated as there will be plenty of overlap, so you can still check it here.

But now it’s time to get this party started…


Black – Theory only, neither confirmed or denied yet

Red – Theory busted!

Green – Theory confirmed

Blue – Extra commentary

That Season 4 Cliffhanger Ending…

Does Rick (Andrew Lincoln) have a plan to escape from Terminus in Season 5 of AMC's The Walking Dead?

  • Rick (Andrew Lincoln) has a plan. There is a lot of eyeballing going on between him and Carl (Chandler Riggs) before they end up in the train carriage. There is also substantial talking without talking between Carl, Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Michonne (Danai Gurira). Is it possible that Rick is finally gonna let his son be a grown up?


What secrets does Terminus hold for the Season 5 premiere of AMC's The Walking Dead?

There has been plenty of talk about Terminus already and you can catch up on it all here. But, in a nutshell, these are the theories:

  • They are all cannibals
  • This is a safe haven to begin with, but someone will try to take it over (can anyone sayWoodbury all over again?)
  • Terminus is a great place to live, so long as you pay your tithe to the community across the other side of town
  • The men from Daryl’s new group are from Terminus
  • The country club that Daryl and Beth visited is tied in with Terminus somehow


Gareth (Andrew J. West) in introduced in the Season 4 finale of AMC's The Walking Dead.

  • Will be worse than the Governor (David Morrissey)
  • Is just the puppet master of Mary (Denise Crosby)
  • Is actually a good guy

Scary Mary

Scary Mary is really crazy in Season 4, Episode 15 of AMC's The Walking Dead.

The Walking Dead promo pic - Beth

  • Beth is already in Terminus
  • Beth is the grilled meat on the BBQ Mary is tending
  • Beth was abducted by the leader of Terminus and she is now being held as a sex slave
  • According to, the Beth story arc will be a drawn out process. If this is true, it is possible she is not the BBQ meal.

Carol and Tyreese

Carol and Tyreese pair up in Season 4 of AMC's The Walking Dead.

  • They were the first caught and are already in Terminus
  • They are currently watching Terminus and have seen what is going on, so will hatch a plan to get everyone out.
  • Carol was the meat being served up by Mary in Season 4, Episode 15 (entitled Us).

Daryl & Carol

The Walking Dead Season 4 premiere - Daryl (Norman Reedus) & Carol (Melissa McBride) get cozy

  • Yet another season with zero action *sigh*

Do you have any new theories for Season 5 of AMC’s The Walking Dead that you’d like to share? If so, please let me know in the comment below!


  • Since Judith was born as her mother was dying, she is immune to the zombie virus (Thanks to Eva for this theory :-D )
  • Bob Stookey was involved in the helicopter crash we saw in Season 4, Episode 1.

Recurring Zombies

In previous seasons there were a few recurring zombies. Let me know if you spot any in Season 5 and I will add them to the recurring zombie page.

Easter Eggs

None found yet.

The Walking Dead Season 4 FINALE Recap – Episode 16: A

Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) is tested to his limites yet again in the Season 4 finale of AMC's The Walking Dead.


So what in the hell sort of name is ‘A‘ anyway?

And so starts the beginning of the end for Episode 16 of AMC’s The Walking Dead

 First off we find Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Michonne (Danai Gurira) and Carl (Chandler Riggs) checking snares. There’s still that feeling of happy families going on, so when I hear the screaming, I kind of expect it. Except this is completely decoy screams. Turns out some random human is being attacked by walkers. There is nothing Rick’s group can do, so they head away from the mess.

Oh, and before I forget, this episode is bought to you by Rick’s flashbacks. Yep, his crazy is back, except, this time, it’s Hershel (Scott Wilson) who is his moral compass. All of the flashbacks revolve around Rick and Hershel and the happiness that was farming life back at Old MacPrison’s Farm. Oh, and we have a bit of a looksee at psycho Carl again too…

And then we’re back on track again. Now it’s night time and Rick and Michonne are chatting around a fire.

*branch snaps*

Apparently it’s nothing. But we all know it’s totally SOMETHING.

But Rick and Michonne go back to talking about Terminus and there are the first hints that maybe they think it is the new Woodbury.

This lulls us all back into a false sense of security so that Joe (Jeff Kober) and his fucked up redneck crew can show up and point a gun at Rick’s head and a paedophile at his son!

Joe (Jeff Kober) meets Rick (Andrew Lincoln) in the Season 4 finale of AMC's The Walking Dead.

Yeah, seems they finally tracked him down. Except we can’t see Daryl (Norman Reedus), so we have no idea if he’s okay or not. Oh wait, there he is, sacrificing himself for Rick. Gets the shit kicked out of him too before Rick manages to disarm Joe. There is a lot of fighting in the dark after that until Rick rips out Joe’s jugular WITH HIS TEETH. Then he guts the guy who is trying to rape Carl.

Yeah, totally get how we are getting crazy flashbacks now…

But, then there is no one left except Rick’s crew. Michonne goes all mummy on Carl and comforts him as he lays in the back of the car. Rick and Daryl discuss what level of crazy you have to maintain to function after the zombie apocalypse hits. Rick declares Daryl is his bro and things are starting to look okay again.

The very next day they come across a Terminus sign on the ground and Rick says the first smart thing any of them have ever said about Terminus by suggesting they all head into the woods to check out Terminus first. I’m fairly certain Rick would have suggested this anyway, but after the incident with Joe’s gang, it’s pretty much a sure bet.

Michonne (Danai Gurira) and Carl (Chandler Riggs) chat in the Season 4 finale of AMC's The Walking Dead.

While they are split up, Michonne tells Carl all about how her son died and why her husband and his mate ended up as her walker puppies. It appears she is trying to help Carl from going back to his psycho days. But really, they all need to be the perfect blend of bad arse and bat shit crazy now don’t they?

The heading into the woods is short lived and they all meet back to hide a bag of weapons and jump the fence leading into Terminus.

Now, this section of the episode seems really rushed to me. Shouldn’t they sit back for twenty four hours and really see what’s going down? Also, there seems to be some possible time gaps, so maybe they did and we won’t find out what they did with those missing moments until Season 5? Either way, they are suddenly storming into the first room they come across.

And this is where we meet Gareth (Andrew J. West) for the first time. I keep hearing this name mentioned as the could be, but might not be super baddie for Season 5. He’s all ‘look at me, I’m not the Governor because I’m younger than him and I still have both my eyes.‘ Yeah, don’t trust him one little bit. Too smarmy, too full of bullshit.

Gareth (Andrew J. West) in introduced in the Season 4 finale of AMC's The Walking Dead.

Hi, I’m not weird and creepy at all…

Seems Rick doesn’t trust him either because when Mary (Denise Crosby) offers them a plate of meat (and I haven’t seen anyone eat any yet. So, technically, if the cannibal theory is correct, none of the Rick crew have dined on human flesh yet – and, no, Joe’s jugular doesn’t count!), he goes all gung ho and pulls his gun on the guy carrying Glenn’s (Steven Yeun) watch – you know, the one Hershel gave him.

[insert annoying flashback here]

Oh yeah, shit is going down now. As Rick looks around we confirm that, yes, we did actually see someone wearing Glenn’s riot gear earlier and, whoa, there was a reason Maggie (Lauren Cohan) was wearing Daryl’s poncho, it’s so Rick would recognise it when someone else was wearing it!

So there’s a bit of a stand off and Gareth is trying to talk everyone down except Rick won’t listen and now they are all running for their lives.

Except those bloody snipers are actually aiming for everyone’s feet and practically – actually – herding them into wherever it is this group wants them to go.

And this is where the significance of the title kicks in .

Everything marked ‘A’ is where Rick and his crew are lead to. First it’s a door. Hello, there’s some de-fleshed carcasses lying around before it, but let’s just look away shall we? Is that people calling for help? Yeah, just disregard that folks… And then they’re in a shrine with candles and crazy talk on the walls (Never Again. Never Trust. We First, Always) and names on the floors.

Things get weird in the Season 4 finale of AMC's The Walking Dead.

Seriously, or was it just me, that spent way to long trying to read all the names here?

Yep, hello, Terminus is a cannibal camp for sure!

Next they’re out of that room and running for their lives again. So, of course, it’s exactly to where Gareth wants them to be.

But, hang on, is there some sort of speaking without uttering words going on between Rick and Carl? And is that some more eye talking going on that includes Daryl and Michonne too? It seems there might be some sort of a plan being hatched…

And that’s how Rick, Michonne, Daryl and Carl, end up in a train cart with Glenn, Maggie and their group.

Rick (Andrew Lincoln) gets trapped but finds his friends in the Season 4 finale of AMC's The Walking Dead.

Well, that escalated quickly…

Which leads us to a break from The Walking Dead tradition – the season finale cliff hanger! Yep, normally it’s reserved for the mid-season finale, but not this time.

Now we have to wait until October to find out how the fuck Rick is gonna get them the hell out of Terminus!

What did you think of the Season 4 finale of AMC’s The Walking Dead? Was it what you expected? Let me know in the comments below!

Some Stuff and Things to do until The Walking Dead Season 5

TWD Season 5 return meme

Yeah, it’s tough isn’t, having to wait until the end of the year for AMC’s The Walking Dead Season 5. So, what can we do to fill the time?

  • Read The Walking Dead Comics

The Walking Dead Compendium 1I can’t stress enough how awesome these graphic novels are! If you haven’t had a chance to read them yet, then why not start with The Walking Dead Compendium One? This book includes the first 48 comics.

Find out who lasted longer or, alternatively, died quicker, as well as the characters that are exclusive to the comics. Also find out which story lines made it and which ones didn’t. Reading the comics may also help you work out just what the hell Terminus is all about too…

You can also purchase The Walking Dead Compendium Two by clicking here.

  • Like games?

Why not go old school and check out The Walking Dead Risk board game then? There is also a Walking Dead Monopoly set that you can buy here. But, please be aware that the game pieces do set up a major spoiler. (Thanks to Cassidy for this suggestion.)

If you’re more into video games, then you can always try Tell Tale’s The Walking Dead: Season One. This game runs within the Walking Dead universe but has all new unique characters. There has been many, many awesome reviews on this game, and, while I have purchased it, I haven’t had a chance to personally play it yet – but, boy oh boy, am I looking forward to it!

  • Supanova.

This event is sort of like the ComicCon for Australia. There are a variety of guests – one of them being the awesome Michael Rooker, who played Daryl Dixon’s brother, Merl. Supanova comes to the Gold Coast on April 4th, Melbourne on April 11th and Sydney on June 13th.

  • Read a book.

Emeline and the Mutants by Rachel TsoumbakosTo commiserate the demise of Season 4 of AMC’s The Walking Dead, I have reduced the price of Emeline and the Mutants to only 99 cents! Fans of the Walking Dead comic books will find this novel akin to a graphic novel with its snippets of journals, news articles and propaganda posters. Here’s the blurb to entice you some more:

What would you do if your whole family mutated into hideous creatures?

Would you have the courage to do what had to be done when they threatened you life?

Emeline Hart is faced with this horrifying decision when the miraculous Haum vaccine changes into something monstrous. When the mutations start, there is no way to hide the fact that the world is now filled with people who are no longer dying of cancer, heart disease or diabetes. Instead, they become zombies, werewolves and trolls.

In the midst of this, Emeline must search for her missing brother and unravel the conspiracy of events surrounding his disappearance.

The heart pounding action intensifies as medical science goes wrong in EMELINE AND THE MUTANTS.

This deal will only last for seven days, so make sure you pick it up quick before it reverts back to its original price of $3.99!

If you own a reading device other than a Kindle, then you can purchase your 99 cent copy of Emeline and the Mutants by clicking here.

I will be publishing the code which will give you the first five chapters of my upcoming zombie apocalypse novel, Metanoia, for FREE!

Your FREE code is: FY68W

Here’s the blurb:



Definition: n. a spiritual conversion or awakening; a fundamental change of character

Etymology: Greek ‘to change one’s mind, repent’

Marli Anderson has just one task: assassinate Oscar La Monde, the man she once loved.

As assassin for hire for the prestigious Merrick’s Inc., she is sent back to her home town to kill the man she now loathes beyond all others—her husband. Considering they are on opposing sides of the uprising, Marli anticipates an easy task; ‘closure’ they call it. The fact that she can exact her revenge for his past discretions is just the icing on the cake.

When she arrives, the town has changed. The man she hated is unexpectedly welcoming. And the town’s folk—well, they’re just… different. Someone or something has transformed them all into a bunch of zombies. They appear to be harmless – but are they?

As she begins to uncover details of who may be behind the townfolks’ metamorphosis, Marli is left fighting for the truth. Will she and Oscar be able to unravel the web of deception before it’s too late?

Should she trust her heart or her head? Which is less likely to get her killed?

Either way, METANOIA is a heart-stopping zombie apocalypse adventure that will keep you guessing at every twist and turn until the very end.

  • Watch The Walking Dead all over again.

Still finding nothing but watching The Walking Dead will fill the void? Why not rewatch the entire series? Or, at bare minimum, check out Season 4 all in one hit – just to see what you have missed first time round. You might even be able to come up with some new theories on what may go down in The Walking Dead Season 5! Or you might even find some new recurring zombies

  • Plan for Halloween.

It’s never too early to start planning for a Walking Dead themed Halloween. I included some costume ideas recently in my Walking Dead finale party blog, so why not start there?

  • Google is your friend – or foe – until October.

There is plenty of fodder out there already about AMC’s The Walking Dead Season 5. Here’s some tasty morsels to get you started:

        • Season 4 will end with a major cliffhanger
        • A major character is tipped to die in the Season 4 finale since Robert Kirkman recently quipped that “no one is safe” and that there is “quite a big shock coming.”
        • Filming for Season 5 will begin in April of 2014, so expect more info to start cropping up from then onwards.
        • Thanks to signage up around the filming locations for The Walking Dead, it looks like there could be gunfire carrying on over from the Season 4 finale!
        • Season 5, Episode One is reported to be filmed at a train depot. This sounds like things will still be going down in Terminus!
        • Beth’s story line will not be resolved quickly according to Executive Producers for the show. Guess that means Beth isn’t BBQ – not just yet anyway!
        • The new character, Gareth, who was introduced briefly in the Season 4 finale, has the option of becoming a series regular in Season 5.

Thanks to for all this Season 5 info!
