“Game of Thrones” Season 4, Episode 4 titled “Oathkeeper,” which aired April 27, 2014 on HBO should be titled “Justice” instead. Why? Well, we couldn’t help but be in awe with Dany (no surprise there, she’s epic!) and her revenge on the masters of Meereen. And can we just mention that the crucifixion scene was gruesome?!

How Inspiring, Grey Worm

Due to Grey Worm’s inspiring words, the slaves of Meereen all joined hands together and went against their masters. “Kill the Masters” was etched across a wall before the slave master gets ambushed by his own slaves, all well equipped now.

“I will answer injustice with justice”

Daenerys Targaryen is truly getting fiercer and more ruthless than before and we are loving it! She proved that she wouldn’t rule with mercy when retribution must be had. Dany crucified 163 Meereen slave owners, and again, it was gruesome!

Not Bran

Bran, Hodor, Meera and Jojen Reed were captured by Karl and his other brothers of the Night’s Watch. Karl just slapped a disabled boy right across the face and things will definitely get ugly when Jon Snow arrives at Craster’s. We just can’t wait to see how Snow will take this and how justice will be served for his brother, Bran. It’s not nice to slap people, Karl, especially a disabled child. Oh, you are dead meat!

Scary White Walkers

The last few minutes of the episode was indeed, very scary and fans were left with mixed feelings of fear and confusion. What are these white walkers doing to the babies?

The Killer has Finally Been Revealed

Who killed Joffrey? No, it’s definitely not Tyrion but Olenna Tyrell. However, she didn’t do that alone because Littlefinger was on it the whole time.

Brienne, the “Oathkeeper”

Jaime Lannister is really growing on us, he sided with his brother Tyrion over their sister, Cersei, asked Brienne to protect Sansa by giving her his new sword and saved Podrick from King’s Landing. Now, that just created balance from the whole “rape” scene because we think the show writers don’t really want us to think that Jaime is really a “nice” guy, nevertheless, these acts made us love him even more!

How Cersei Handled the “rape”

Well, she didn’t go to her father and let the guards kill her brother for raping her, but she’s treating Jaime as if he’s a servant. Both of them didn’t acknowledge the whole rape scene.

The Elephant in the Room has Been Addressed

We’re all aware of Jaime and Cersei’s incest and we are also aware that a lot of people in King’s landing and even in the whole of Westeros know about it, including their witty brother, Tyrion. What we love most about this episode is that the cat is out of the bag already when Jaime and Tyrion finally brought the incest out into the open. Oh, finally!

That’s it for the “Game of Thrones” Season 4 Episode 4 recap of “Oathkeeper.” Do you want more? Make sure that you tune in here at Movie News Guide (MNG) for the latest news about “Game of Thrones” and other entertainment news.
