Metatron is rattling around in the bottom of a dumpster. Finally he comes up yahtzee with a fairly unsullied half of a half of a pastrami on rye. He opens his mouth to wolf it down – but stops. The dog is looking at him. I’m going to call him Scraps. Scraps is Sam’s puppy dog eyes made actual dog. Metatron is powerless against him.
The fallen scribe tosses the hunk of lunch meat to Scraps. A fond smile steals across Metatron’s face, and then it’s back down to the dumpster’s depths. He wrestles with the garbage before finally shouting, “I GIVE UP!”
So, last week we were teased in the previews that Game of Thrones was going back to the past, to the Tower of Joy to finally confirm that theory — you know, THAT theory — once and for all. The Tower of Joy, “R +L = J,” you know nothing Jon Snow, THAT theory. I mean, now that Jon Snow is magically back to life, we might as well get on with it, and learn about who he is and where he came from and what makes him so special, right? RIGHT? Surely they aren’t going to take us all the way to the Tower of Joy, the most anticipated location in all of Game of Thrones history, and NOT tell us what happened there.
