Game Of Thrones Recap: S6E1 ‘The Red Woman’

Game of Thrones

The Dothraki Sea: Daenerys & Jorah and Daario

The Red Woman

When the show writes trash talk, it just sounds hilarious, regardless of content. The Dothraki conversation while Daenerys walks is a prime example. Of course, Emilia Clarke makes it all better with her priceless expressions, a trend which continues when she is laughed at for her absurd amount of titles and then when she realizes admitting to being a Khal Drogo’s widow dooms her to servitude in the Dothraki captial Vaes Dothrak. Then again, Dany has never really fulfilled any role people have thrust upon her. She makes her role. That’s why we love her.

The two Dany suitors, one successful, one not so much, talk about, of course, Dany on their journey and find her ring. Jorah’s greyscale plotline is intriguing with the added ticking clock. What happens if/when he gets back to Westeros? It has enough problems without an outbreak of Stone Men. Then again, at this point, apocalypse seems merciful (God, I’m becoming a Faceless Man).
