Is it just us or does everyone in the latest batch of Game of Thrones photos look super judgmental right now? I mean, yeesh, c’mon guys — enough with the sourpusses already. (We get it, ruling is very difficult.) Granted, by the looks of Sunday night’s forthcoming episode, “The Laws of Gods and Men,” there’s plenty of heat to go around, and it’s cooking up a bit of trouble for the folks across the Realm. I mean, just look at how judgy and super-serious everyone looks in these photos.
Ever since the second episode of this season, a trial has been looming: namely that of Tyrion Lannister for the death of King Joffrey The AbsoWorst. Now, we all know he didn’t do it, but since Tyrion’s family consists of Cersei and Tywin Lannister, we also know he’s got a bullseye on his back. But Tyrion isn’t the only one in the hot seat: Dany will no doubt be judged on her ability to rule as an actual queen, Jon Snow will no doubt be judged for the outcome at Craster’s Keep that we saw during “First of His Name,” and it looks like Stannis will be getting judged himself, as well. Just look at the episode’s description from HBO:
“Stannis and Davos set sail with a new strategy. Dany meets with supplicants. Tyrion faces down his father in the throne room.”
So! Everyone looks to be in the very vulnerable position of having their fate and livelihood rest in the hands of others. But what, pray tell, do you think they’re thinking with such judgmental mugs on their faces? We’ve come up with some ideas of our own but — in keeping with the tradition we have all forged here together — want to hear your thoughts about what our favorite warmongers might be thinking.
So, think you can do any better? Sound off in the comments (and make sure your fantasy fantasy leagues are updated for Sunday)!
