    Long Story Short (Too Late) – Official HBO synopsis:

    • Episode 2.09: “Tyrion and the Lannisters fight for their lives.”

    Joffrey’s a Tit – Our “favourite” moments of Joffrey being a total tit – or whichever character was a stand out douche canoe in that episode:

    • I’m going to say it was a toss up between his encounter with Sansa and then him pussing out on the battlefield

    Everybody Wants Some (I Want Some Too) -Those awkward/good nudie moments:

    • There was only one, and this time it was really unnecessary and gratuitous

    Another Head on a Pike -SFX work that stood out (best death, best maim, etc.) and the kill count to date for the season:

    • Well, this was a major battle, so just about the entire episode
    • Death Total for S2: I’m going with a bazillion

    He’s a Complicated Man, No One Understands Him But His Woman -Tyrion, being a badass, as he’s wont to do:

    • Probably when he gave the speech to get the men to rally behind him after they just watched their king turn tail and run to mamma

  1. […] went all meta and talked about stuff (beyond my “WHERE’S TOM BOMBADIL?!” rants). Episode 1.08 was a woman short for hosting duties, but Elizabeth and I tried our best to keep things together. […]
