Game of Thrones. The OTHER one.
|Tyrion Lannister. Yes, I would.|
Tonight wild horses will not be able to tear me away from the telly (nor will a naked Hugh Jackman reclining on a king-sized bed and brandishing a large jar of warmed honey). No, nothing will be able to tempt me away from Sky Atlantic because TONIGHT, in the UK, A Game of Thrones returns to our screens!!!!
I luffed the first series 11/10 and still mourn Ned Stark *waggles black armband*
So, here’s my question for today…..Which family in A Game of Thrones equates to which Tarot family?
I asked this on Facebook waaaaaaay back in Season 1 and I didn’t get a single reply *dashes tears away on sleeve*…. so I’m hoping that throwing down the gautlet (leather, trimmed with gold, lined in some rare animal skin – very Lannister :-)) will yield some kind of result *hopeful face*
Do the Starks in the North equate to Pentacles (north, winter, midnight, earth)? Do the golden-haired Lannisters equate to the worst excesses Cups (incest, power struggles, nice clothes), and the Dragon-charming Targaryan queen who survives fire unharmed does she represent the Wands?
What about the Watch who live in the frozen north, guarding the whole realm with their austere fur-clad existence? Are they the Swords? Or are they all Knights?
One thing is for sure. I am delighted that it has returned.
Now excuse me, I must go and check to see whether Hugh is prepared to warm up the honey again in the microwave after the show has finished…..
***UPDATE – We are in Edinburgh for a few days and the flat turned out NOT to have Sky Atlantic. I am currently sitting in a corner, weeping and gently banging my head off the wall. No Sky Atlantic = No Game of Thrones. Will have to watch on Catch Up service. I am grumpier than Tyrion Lannister denied access to a brothel ***
