After watching the shocking events that took place last week on Game of Thrones in "Walk of Punishment" (poor Jaime Lannister!) (never thought I'd say that after he shoved a kid out of a tower!), there's a lot of anticipation over what's going to happen in episode 4, "And Now His Watch Is Ended." Jeez, Game of Thrones certainly has the most uplifting episode titles, don't they?
Some reviewers were able to see the first four episodes in advance -- and they're saying that there's one scene in particular that's gonna blow everyone's minds. I, sadly, was not part of the elite, chosen few who was privy to this information, so all I can do is, like the rest of you minions, speculate, speculate, speculate.
So, as a reader of A Storm of Swords, here are a couple theories I have as to what might go down. LOTS OF SPOILERS ahead! Don't read any farther if you haven't read the book.
Wetpaint is one of the sources that has seen the episode. They say:
Three standout scenes from the book go down. One only begins, one is about what we expected, and one is everything we could have wanted and more.
Next week is.... I don't want to get your expectations too high but.... there is some great stuff. In fact, episode 4 has arguably the best scene this show has ever staged. I've literally watched this one sequence six times.
I think this scene in question is going to be when Daenerys sells her largest dragon, Drogon, to the slave masters to buy the 8,000 Unsullied. When she confirms that the army is indeed hers, she turns around and has her dragons and her new "soldiers" betray and attack their masters. She then takes over the city and ends up with both her army and her dragons!
That's what I'm hoping for at least. Other than that, I have no idea what this scene could possibly be, and I'm desperate to know more. Otherwise, it looks like Arya Stark is taken to the commander of the Brotherhood, and maybe something about what the Lannisters have in mind for Sansa Stark will also be revealed -- like her wedding to Tyrion. Commander of the Night's Watch Jeor Mormont (remember, his pet raven is always the one who wanted corn) also kicks the bucket in the third book -- he's slain by one of his own men. So perhaps the so-called scene is the Night Watch's mutiny? The episode title "and now his watch is ended" are actually the last lines of his eulogy. So is that it?! I have to know! OMG is it Sunday yet?!
Here's the trailer for Sunday's episode:
What do you think this supposed best scene in the show's history is going to be in episode 4?
