You're not going to believe what I'm going to say next. You just won't. There are only THREE episodes left in what's been a badass third season of Game of Thrones. We've seen some major moments for Daenerys Targaryen, Jaime Lannister, and Jon Snow, and fans are hoping that the season is going to end on a ridiculously high (yet most likely tragic) note.
On Sunday, "Second Sons" is the leadup to what's going to be one of the craziest episodes ever ("The Rains of Castamere") -- or so readers of A Storm of Swords think. So, what the heck, might as well speculate what we're going to see in "Second Sons," and try to figure out what exactly the title is referring to. This is what Sunday is for, after all. Game of Thrones.
SPOILERS TO COME. If that wasn't obvious enough. If you don't want to know what happens in the book, check out some cat gifs instead. You're welcome.
Well, the synopsis pretty much gives this one away. "King’s Landing hosts a wedding, and Tyrion and Sansa spend the night together." Okay, well, that most likely means that we are going to see Tyrion and Sansa's wedding. Neither is happy about it, as Sansa doesn't want to marry a dwarf and Tyrion doesn't want to marry a "child." Readers know too that Tyrion will refuse to consummate the marriage -- and pretty much the entire kingdom figures it out. Also, Tyrion is Tywin's second son (the title! the title!).
Daenerys will also meet the Titan's Bastard, a sellsword. His name is Mero, and he is the commander of the Second Sons (ah, the title again). Mero and Dany do not get along -- at least in the book. Though I'm wondering why Mero, if that is indeed him, isn't sporting his signature long, red beard?
We also see that Davos is going to want proof that Gendry is the late King Robert's son, and it looks like Melisandre is going to do something very painful to him. Sam and Gilly will be attacked by wights too. Sam manages to kill one with fire, but a group of them approaches Gilly with her newborn son. But they are saved by Coldhands, who looks like a wight, wears the black of the Night's Watch, and rides a huge ass elk. I can't wait to see that!
Arya is now a captive of the Hound, and though their relationship is fraught with tension and she tries to kill him and escape more than once, he does lead her to where her Uncle Edmure is getting married ... and book readers know what happens there!
Not entirely sure what Joffrey's freaking out about, though. Any time Joffrey freaks out, it's probably a good thing.
Here's the trailer for "Second Sons":
Are you looking forward to Tyrion and Sansa's wedding? Think Coldhands will make an appearance?
