Each week, readers Bob and Ivey discuss ‘Game of Thrones’ from the perspective of those who have read the books. This week we discuss the latest addition to Dany’s armies. Spoilerphobes beware!
The third season of HBO’s epic fantasy series Game of Thrones has done a wonderful job of slowly raising the stakes over the second half of the season. While these last few episodes have been criticized by some as being a little slow, the ratings over this time period have been some of the best that series has ever seen. While in a lot of ways this season has been building up to the ninth episode and beyond, there still has been a great deal of plot movement in the meantime.
Admittedly, one of the storylines that has been guilty — at least in the last several episodes — of moving slowly is Dany’s in Essos. A marked improvement over last season’s pace, the story this year has two big moments: the victory in Astapor and the coming fight in Yunkai. As we move closer to the latter, a polarizing character in the ASOIAF fandom has finally been introduced: Daario Naharis. This week, Bob and Ivey will take a deeper look at the sell-sword who has crossed Daenerys Targaryen path.
So if you weren’t left wondering why Daario Naharis’ hair wasn’t blue, then you should probably not keep reading this column.
