All men must die. But we are not men.  
Game of Thrones 3.03 "Walk of Punishment"

Daenerys was on point this episode.

Everything with her arc so far has been magnificent. Her reactions to the slaver traders, to her just taking control of the situation. Like during the negotiations for buying all the the Unsullied, for example. She clearly knows what she wants to do and how she's going to go about it, and she's not going to let anyone stop her from achieving this. This has me really excited because a certain event is going to happen soon that I honestly can't wait for. If done right, it's gonna be fucking epic.

The funniest scene out of the entire episode? The Lannister meeting. No words were spoken. No words were needed to be spoken because just their expressions, their body language, the moving of the chairs (Cersei picking hers up, Tyrion dragging his) was enough to make the scene that much more hilarious to watch.

AND JAIME. JAIME AND BRIENNE. THE CUTTING OFF OF JAIME'S HAND.

AND WHAT WAS WITH THE END CREDIT MUSIC?! Like no seriously, did that happen to anyone else? We ended on such a heavy, dramatic and shocking moment and then it's like, UPBEAT MUSIC TIME. O_o idek


Lost Girl 3.13 "Those Who Wander"

It appears that the Wanderer is Bo's biological father after all.

And that Isaac dude was just so whackjob who, in the end, got his and got it good. Dyson fucking ate him! Or just shredded him into teeny tiny bits. Whatever needed to get the job done. It was a weird little subplot, but it brought back Bo's mother, and answered the question on what had happened to her after the first season finale. So that's a good thing? She didn't die, she fed off that other Fae in order to heal so we'll probably be seeing her again. We're not out of the woods yet, considering that the Wanderer is going to be playing a huge role next season for sure.

As for Lauren, well, it's understandable what's been happening with her. While she was sneaky and resourceful in not giving what Isaac wanted, it's true that she has been tossed around by the Fae for far too long. Never mind that humans are now considered an "enemy", and she being on a hit list considering her part in getting Dyson kidnapped, whether she was aware of it or not, it will most likely not be safe for her to return. There's also the matter about her past and why she changed her name. Wondering if that will be part of her arc next season.

And Tamsin, my bb. I guess my original suspicion was right all along. She was dying, as that is what a Valkyrie does. They apparently have many lifetimes, and unfortunately this one was nearing its expiration date.

At first I was terrified that she was going to die, and then that she and Bo were going to fight and have that happen, but then it didn't and Bo knew that Tamsin was underneath a lot of stress and was terrified of something. And they bonded on that level and it was perfect and they were a team and it was awesome! But then shit got realer and we don't know what happened to her and Dyson! D: D: D:

FUCKING CLIFFHANGER, NO!!!! DON'T DO THIS TO ME! I WANT TO KNOW IF SHE SURVIVED. FUCK IT, I WANT HER TO SURVIVE! SHE HAS TO! PLEASEPLEASEPLEASE NEXT SEASON SHE WILL BE ALIVE AND OKAY AND WELL AND SHE WILL JOIN IN TEAM BO AND IT WILL BE ALL GOOD, RIGHT?

Also, I want her and Bo to officially hook up. I mean, love Lauren, but come on. BO/TAMSIN. ALL THE SPARKAGE. THE TENSION. THE WAY THEY LOOK AT EACH OTHER, THE WAY THAT TAMSIN JUST DOESN'T WANT TO HURT BO BECAUSE SHE LOVES AND HAS RESPECT FOR HER AND AND AND. GAH. JUST GIVE ME ALL THE THINGS ABOUT THIS SHIP, PLEASE.

Sorry, I just have a lot of feelings about this.

Oh, and Kenzi being snarkalicious with the Morrigan? A+, sistah.

And TRICK IS OKAY! HALE SAVED HIM AND KENZI, AND VEX CAME BACK! FOR A LITTLE SCENE BUT IT WAS GLORIOUS AND HE HAS HIS POWERS BACK AND HOPEFULLY THIS MEANS HE'LL BE AROUND NEXT SEASON, Y/Y?

Basically I'm predicting the next season will consist of: Bo and the Wanderer (her father) and her understanding more where she came from and the limits to her powers, the Human vs Fae shitstorm, Kenzi wanting to become Fae in order to help out her friends (which, honey babe, I love you but that didn't go over well with dead Isaac, besides you are just as awesome and helpful just as you are). Also some subplots that may include Lauren's past, but that's just my own guess because with everything that will be going down I highly doubt she'll be as much use to the Fae unless it's close friends.


And because this is everywhere:

CATCHING FIRE OFFICIAL TEASER TRAILER IS HERE! :O

The thing I like about this is that it highlights the important aspect of the story. Contrary to what most believe, this series is not about some love triangle but about politics; it's about the start of a revolution and uprising of the people in a really fucked up dystopian world, and it's really about Katniss being this political symbol of that revolution. I think this trailer is powerful in showing just that. Showing how ruthless President Snow and the rest in power at the Capitol are, and how Katniss and the rest of the people of Panem are struggling with having to overcome their oppression and fighting back. This is the story I want to see, and I honestly can't wait when it comes out.

I think the weird music was on purpose? It was a rock version of that bear and the maiden or something song ^^

I thought about that, too. Like, the transition was intentional to kind of throw the audience for a loop after such a tense and dramatic moment at the very end of the episode. It certainly had that effect on me, for sure. lol

Yeah the end music threw me as well but I liked it.

I think for some people (on the stream or so) the song already started while Jaime was getting his hand cut off,that must have been even weirder *lol*

lol, oh man, that definitely must've been quite a weird experience for some people. I knew the scene was coming, but had that had happened during my viewing of it, it would have just taken me out of the moment and had me laughing.

I can definitely get on board with Bo/Tamsin.

All that sexual tension between them, I mean seriously. We've already had them kiss, and then Tamsin getting into a tub with Bo. Hell, just Tamsin having it bad for Bo in general, really. I think it's fair game to have them officially hook up for realsies.

OMG THE TEASER GAVE ME GOOSEBUMPS! I am feeling a little bit better about the movie. I had been nervous since the original director left and said they weren't giving him enough time to make the movie he wanted. But just the few scenes in the trailer were so good. It's a year of sequels and I don't care!

It took me a moment after the trailer to realize that yeah, the director of the first film isn't doing the rest of the movies. Which goes to show you how mesmerized I was by it, and impressed with how it was put together. It has really amped my anticipation for the entire movie.
