Game of Thrones 1x10
Fire and Blood
Watch game of thrones 1×10 tv series online. With Ned dead, Robb vows to get revenge on the Lannisters. Jon must officially decide if his place is with Robb or the Night’s Watch. Daenerys says her final goodbye to Drogo.
Although Daenerys’ storyline got a bit too messy for my taste in the past two episodes (Maz basically murdered Drogo and Dany’s unborn son because she wanted revenge all along?), Fire and Blood’s final scene succeeded in making everything worthwhile. The sight of Dany rising from the ashes of the pyre completely unharmed with her three baby dragons is immediately iconic, and it’s a true turning point for the show. Up until now, Thrones has only flirted with magic and fantasy, but here it embraces them full-on in an utterly magnificent sequence. In addition, seeing everyone bow down before Dany and her newfound power is enormously satisfying when contrasted with the beginning of her journey in the pilot. Outstanding!
The aftermath of Ned’s death on the Starks is particularly brutal. Catelyn stoically walks past her army without breaking down, then loses it in the forest only to catch a frantic Rob shattering his sword on a tree. Their hug is gut-wrenching, and their vows for revenge are absolutely blood-pumping. Also, I like that the show doesn’t show us Bran’s reaction to Ned’s death. All we get is the knowing look on his face when he sees Maester Luwin with the raven’s note and the camera assumes a wide shot. Elegant and poignant.
