#WinterIsHere Countdown: “Mhysa” (S3E10)


Previous Episode: “The Rains of Castamere”

 

Episode: “Mhysa” (Season 3, Episode 10)

Original Air Date: June 9, 2013

Director: David Nutter

 

Plot (via HBO)

Season Three Finale. Joffrey challenges Tywin. Dany waits to see if she is a conqueror or liberator.

 

Best Moment: Daenerys Targaryen is a liberator

Game of Thrones knows how to end its seasons, and “Mhysa” delivers an awesome moment for Daenerys Targaryen. At first, Missandei speaks on behalf of Dany to the freed Yunkish slaves, but the Mother of Dragons then decides to speak for herself from the heart, giving a powerful and emotional speech that states: “You do not owe me your freedom. I cannot give it to you. Your freedom is not mine to give. It belongs to you and you alone. If you want it back, you must take it for yourselves. Each and every one of you.” After a brief absorption of the speech, the crowd started chanting “Mhysa,” which Missandei says is Ghiscari for “mother.” Dany then goes down to the crowd and they lift her up in an almost-prophetic way, as her dragons fly overhead. It’s a breathtaking scene that displays both the great character arc of Daenerys Targaryen and the legend that she is.

 

Best Quote

“Any man who must say, ‘I am the king’, is no true king. I’ll make sure you understand that when I’ve won your war for you.” – Tywin Lannister to Joffrey Baratheon

 

Trivia

Bran tells the story about a cook in the Night’s Watch that killed a king’s son and then put the son into a pie and served it to the king. Bran says murder is not what the gods could not forgive, but rather killing a “guest beneath his roof.” This shows that what Walder Frey did to Robb, Catelyn, Talisa, and their family was unforgiveable. And it foreshadows to Season 7, when Arya serves Walder Frey’s sons—Lothar and Black Walder—in a pie to him as redemption for the Red Wedding.

MVP: Daenerys Targaryen

Tywin Lannister would be a good choice for MVP after putting Joffrey in his place at the Small Council meeting if not for his telling Tyrion he thought about killing him the day he was born; and Tyrion was an option himself for having a clear head about how unjust the killing of Robb Stark was. But Daenerys is the MVP of “Mhysa” for continuing to develop as a person and leader that now has a whole group of people to support her.
