This episode of Game of Thrones was so crazy that it made crazy episodes of Game of Thrones seem not crazy. I’m still at a loss for words but I’m a man of the people and will try my best.
How about the episode starting off with this visual of fire beyond The Wall. That’s what they call foreshadowing, folks.
Beyond The Wall
The Suicide Squad of the 7 noteworthy men and 3 or so other men dragging a sled are walking beyond the wall with the mission of capturing a Wight. “I can breathe again. Down South the air smells like pig shit” Tormund tells Jon and Gendry, to which Jon replies that he’s only been to Winterfell. They argue over what’s North and what’s South while Gendry freezes his balls off. After Gendry asks Jon and Tormund how they stayed warm all their lives, Tormund tells Gendry that fucking is the best way to stay warm and that they’ve got to make due with what they’ve got when the only women are hundreds of miles away. Gendry immediately joins the less weird people in the back of the line. Tormund then asks Jon about Daenerys and Jon tells him that she’ll only help if he bends the knee. Tormund brings up Mance Rayder and wonders aloud, “how many of his people died for his pride?”
