Game of Thrones Episode 3 Theories: “The Queens Justice”

Also, hear why fans are grumpy about Samwell Tarly’s miracle cure for Jorah’s greyscale. And boy genius listener Zach D. delivers an INSANELY detailed account of how big each faction’s army really is.

Game of Thrones Episode 3 Summary: “The Queen’s Justice” is the third episode of the seventh season of HBO’s fantasy television series Game of Thrones, and the 63rd overall. The episode was written by series co-creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, and directed by Mark Mylod.

At Dragonstone, Jon Snow and Davos Seaworth meet with Daenerys Targaryen, whom Jon asks for aid in defeating the White Walkers, but Daenerys iterates her desire to take the Iron Throne instead. In King’s Landing, Euron Greyjoy returns bearing gifts to Cersei Lannister, in the form of Ellaria Sand and Tyene Sand. At the Citadel, Samwell Tarly and Archmaester Ebrose examine a now healed Jorah Mormont. In Winterfell, Sansa Stark is reunited with her brother Bran Stark. At Casterly Rock, the Unsullied infiltrate and capture the castle, but Euron’s Iron Fleet arrives, and begins destroying their ships, leaving them stranded. Meanwhile, Jaime Lannister leads the Lannister army to take Highgarden.

The title of the episode refers to Cersei Lannister exacting vengeance, her own way of justice, on both the Sand Snakes and Olenna Tyrell. “The Queen’s Justice” received positive reviews from critics, who considered the long-awaited meeting between Daenerys and Jon, the agonizing fates of Ellaria and Tyene Sand, Sansa and Bran’s reunion, the bait-and-switch scene concerning Casterly Rock and Highgarden, and the final performances of Diana Rigg and Indira Varma as highlights of the episode. In the United States, it achieved a viewership of 9.25 million in its initial broadcast. This episode marks the final appearances of Diana Rigg, Rosabell Laurenti Sellers and Indira Varma.

    Responding to the last small council’s discussion on Jorah’s greyscale. I don’t agree that it was a purposeless plot point, I believe Jorah will return to Khaleesi and bring her back to her roots. He is the one character who has been with her from nearly the beginning, then has been away when so much has been occurring. I think we can agree that Khaleesi has acted somewhat entitled from the beginning, but it has gotten to the point where being entitled has been taking over her character… please give up *bend the knee* already. She has certainly earned her spot and gained followers by choice instead of force, but this is starting to turn. Once Khaleesi and Jorah reunite, he will see how much she has changed and hopefully reel her back into her humbleness, within reason for a queen.
