1. Missing body parts are a given.
Didn’t your mother ever tell you not to play with fireworks… on a ship… on the Bering Sea?
And for that matter, didn’t she tell you Westeros has laws against smuggling?
Slightly off topic, Stannis better do something soon. I’m getting bored with this Red Priestess storyline.
These aren’t the only instances in which folks have lost body parts. We’ll stick with hands though and keep this post to a PG rating.
2. If it’s bounty you seek, prepare for disappointment.
3. Trust no one. You will be betrayed.
Junior and Keith form an alliance when Junior’s pots continue to come up empty. Junior betrays Keith later in the episode claiming he is still pulling blanks, when in fact his pots are full of crab.
In addition, I can no longer trust anyone in Game of Thrones. Thanks, Jorah.
And we can’t forget Walder Frey…
4. Somebody you love dies.
5. Winter is Coming.
You can’t get through an episode of either series without this friendly reminder.
