(Spoiler Alert: I will be recapping this episode so don't read on if you haven't seen it yet.)
Happy Mother's Day to all! Tonight's episode is another strong one as we wind down to the season finale in about three more weeks. The Bear and the Maiden Fair focuses its attention on some of the strong willed women of GOTs and although many women are used for unpleasant things in this world, there are others that have the power to shape the course of history.
Beyond The Wall.
Jon Snow and Ygritte have scaled to the other side of the wall with Tormund, Orell and a few other wildlings and are about a week away from Castle Black. Snow is still pissed at Orell for almost killing him and his girl and confronts him over it. For the first time we realize that Orell is jealous of Jon and tells Snow to get over it because that's the way the world works. You like, love, leave and kill people only when it suits you and Ygritte is going to leave him because she understands this.
Later on Orell reveals to Ygritte how much he loves her and tells her that she only loves Snow because he's a pretty boy. (A pretty boy with a master tongue.) Orell is a warg who can link his mind with animals, but he can't make a simple connection with the ladies. This isn't going to end well. Watch your back Jon Snow or you won't know anything ever again.
Romance of the week: Jon Snow and Ygritte's love is getting stronger as they march towards Castle Black and it's a welcome addition to this season.
