In June/July 2014 (four years late to the party) Elizabeth finally watched through Game of Thrones. Aware of her squeamishness, her brother Xander (who’s seen the show) and friend Anne (who’s also read the books) thought it might be amusing to see her reactions as she watched. This is the transcript of that experience: it contains many spoilers and not much coping.
- Episodes 1-2
Elizabeth: Snow! I love snow! I wish it snowed here
Xander: Snow! Yay!
Elizabeth: EW EW EW EW
Elizabeth: SEVERED HEADS EVERYWHERE
- Episodes 3-4
Elizabeth: Ayra continues to be my favourite
Elizabeth: The sword looks so tiny when Papa Stark holds it
Elizabeth: “Try not to stab your sister with it”
Elizabeth: Some good fathering going on there
- Episodes 5-6
Elizabeth: Arya, you are not Indiana Jones, do not go down mysterious passageways, it will not end well
Elizabeth: Yeah, Ayra, those were some traitors.
Elizabeth: Stark kids: stop witnessing compromising scenes
Elizabeth: It has not worked out well for you thus far
Elizabeth: Oh Hodor
Elizabeth: So naked
Xander: Naked Hodor!
Xander: Best Hodor!
Elizabeth: Dude, don’t shoot the raven
Elizabeth: All of the ravens?
Elizabeth: So much raven shooting
Elizabeth: It is like low tech hacking
