1. Castamir was a tragic fighter for the purity of blood against immigrants during the Gondorian Civil War in Tolkien’s Middle-earth.
2. The Reins of Castamere by Ramin Djawadi is one of my favourite inspiring songs in its instrumental variations. Short, yet atmospheric.
3. Seeing a pregnant mestizo stabbed in the belly (bourgois-register English: “abdomen”) was a highlight of this episode for me.
4. Catelyn Stark went out slitting the throat of her enemy’s daughter. That’s epic.
