Game of Thrones Season 1: Episode 4 – ‘Cripples, Bastards, and Broken Things’

We’re now three episodes into our collection of recaps from Season 1. All of these recaps are courtesy of Picktainment.com, as always.

Which means it’s time for the Season 1, Episode 4 review, written by Bryce Van Kooten. You can examine the FULL REVIEW by clicking HERE!

The first few episodes set the perfect stage for the epic quest that’s unfolding — betrayal, lust, passion, murder, mystery — and perfectly molded the cast into the roles we so cleverly wait to turn, morph and entertain us each Sunday night. A role worth nothing this week was the addition of Samwell (John Bradley), the fat, wussy boy sent to guard the Wall along with Snow and his other soldiers. Whether it was his blubbering words or his shaky walk, Bradley added a charm to his blubbering and an instant intrigue in the coldest of places.

Along with Samwell was more from Petyr Baelish — sneaky, pesky, but ever vigilant. Played by The Wire’s Aidan Gillen, Baelish speaks the some truest words of the series after Ned apologizes for not immediately trusting him … “not trusting me immediately was the wisest thing you’ve done since you dismounted your horse here.” It seems that trust, along with the warmth, is fleeting fast.

And one could never forget Daenerys and Viserys — their clash in Vaes Dothrak proving to be a pivotal point in the brother/sister, I’m-Queen-you’re-not struggle for the ages. Literally. Though, something tells me that Daenerys’ right hand man, Ser Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen) might have more behind the curtain than in front.
