"Game of Thrones" Episode 3 Recap: Whodunit? Who Cares?

Page 1 of 3123

Before talking about this week’s Game of Thrones, we should probably dish out the warnings with a heavy hand. Beware of ALL THE SPOILERS for Season 4 Episode 3 Breaker of Chains. Also, this should go without saying, but all the trigger warnings: sexual assault, violence and various very graphic murders. Now that that’s out of the way…

Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones
Looks like Tyrion is about to reach the end of the line. We're betting on a plot twist though...

This episode sets up like a classic whodunit. With Joffrey dead (good riddance, although Jack Gleeson’s acting will be missed), Lord Tywin is trying to prepare little Tommen for his new role as king. The boy wants to be a “good king”, which would be admirable, if it weren’t for the fact that he’s like 12. Cercei, meanwhile, is only concerned with who killed her son. Well, she’s also concerned with getting revenge on Tyrion, whom she thinks is the killer, finding Sansa (who escaped during the commotion caused by Joff’s death) and just a bit of incest next to Joff’s body, but that’s just standard Westeros fare at this point.

Tyrion, meanwhile, has been locked up and is trying to reach out to someone – Sansa, Jaime, Bron, anyone – who might testify on his behalf. He gets to talk to Pod, ever the loyal squire, only to realize that the situation is hopeless. We get a touching moment between Tyrion and Pod and the former hand steeles himself for what’s to come.

Read the rest over on the next page.
