- ‘Game of Thrones': Clues About the Ironborn and House Greyjoy From Real Viking History (Guest Blog)

Ironborn military power is underpinned by their slender, beautifully designed warships which allow them to strike at will along the Westerosi coastline, and so it’s tempting to compare them with the Vikings, the medieval Scandinavian raiders who brought terror to Europe for three centuries.When he discovers that Theon’s splendid neck chain was bought rather than stolen, Balon tears it from his son’s neck, snarling, “That bauble around your neck, did you pay the iron-price for it, or the gold?” Balon clearly is not the kind of medieval Scandinavian king who would be celebrated by his court poets (skalds) for distributing treasure; no one would praise him as a “breaker of rings” or a “thrower of gold” or even a “hater … of the flame-red dragon square,” to cite just a few of Old Norse poetry’s terms for the generous king.The military successes of the Viking-age Scandinavians — settling northern England, founding Dublin and establishing the duchy of Normandy — were possible because their ships could travel far up the great rivers of Europe.The Great Army which swept across northern England in 865 A.D. took horses from those they defeated and thus were mobile enough to achieve military success inland, away from the rivers and coastlines where they easily could regroup on their ships.The Ironborn’s faith is very different from any version of Viking religion that we know of, but their belief in life after death closely resembles a watery version of Valhalla, the god Odin’s great hall, where the valkyries bring heroes who die in battle.When Yara and Theon sailed to Meereen to put their 50 ships at the disposal of Daenerys Targaryen for her long-anticipated invasion of Westeros, Daenerys agreed to support Yara’s claim to the Salt Chair, the Ironborn throne.The Vikings may have left their homelands because population pressure made it hard for them to sustain a living by agriculture on the thin soils and limited flatlands of the Norwegian or Icelandic fjords.For most of the Viking Age, Vikings were already successful traders, dealing in foodstuffs, timber, furs, falcons and slaves all across the North Atlantic, settling into lives as merchants and craftsmen in thriving towns such as Bergen and Trondheim.

- ‘Game of Thrones’ Recap: Jon Assembles Westeros’ Magnificent Seven in ‘Eastwatch’

[...] as the episode title suggests, the various characters are finally headed back to the Wall to start dealing with the White Walker threat.What happened to Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Bronn (Jerome Flynn) at the end of “The Spoils of War?” They did, in fact, avoid getting toasted by dragon fire.The episode starts with Bronn dragging Jaime out of the river a ways away from where the battle took place.Jaime notes that he needs to tell Cersei what happened with the dragons, because if Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) were to unleash them, there’s no way they can win the war.Bronn agrees, and notes, “Dragons are where our partnership ends.”[...] again, we don’t fully believe his cynicism since he keeps sticking his neck out for people other than himself (see below.)Back at the battlefield, Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) surveys the destruction, and it’s pretty horrifying, particularly as a sad version of “The Rains of Castamere” plays, mashed up with “Blood of My Blood,” AKA Daenerys leitmotif.Daenerys tells the captured Lannisters that she’s going to make the world better, and if they bend the knee, they can help — but if they don’t they’ll die.Randyll gets on a kick about how he supports a queen who was born in Westeros, where Tyrion has backed a foreign invader whose Hand murdered his father.Tyrion suggests they send Randyll to the Wall to join the Night’s Watch, but Randyll refuses, saying Daenerys isn’t his queen and thus can’t make him take the black.Tyrion counsels against executing them, especially Dickon, who he says they could toss in prison for a few months to get him to wise up, and noting that it’s not great to annihilate great houses.Tyrion is visibly shaken — Targaryens burning people alive is not a great look.Having seen Dothraki and dragons in action, he’s reached a logical conclusion about the war:[...] Read: 17 Best Fight Scenes From ‘Game of Thrones’ (Photos)Cersei notes that maybe Tyrion will intercede on their behalf, as way of apology for killing their father, Tywin (Charles Dance), and their son Joffrey (Jack Gleeson).“It would be my honor,” Daenerys answers, and showing her faith in him, hugs him — a huge show of trust, since greyscale is passed by touch.Fans will remember that that’s the castle Jon sent Tormund (Kristofer Hivju) and the rest of the Free Folk to guard.[...] at Citadel (HQ of the maesters), the raven has arrived and the maesters are discussing Bran’s message while Samwell Tarly (John Bradley-West) works nearby.Archmaester Marwyn (Jim Broadbent) says he’ll send a raven to Winterfell for clarification, but the maesters still don’t really buy the warning from the North.“I put my trust in you, a stranger, because I knew it was the best chance for my people, for all our people,” Jon says.[...] I’m asking you to trust in a stranger.Because it’s our best chance.Arya’s not happy that the lords insulted Jon, but Sansa knows she needs to play politics and keep the lords happy.He says he’s been getting ready for something and didn’t know what it was, but he wasn’t planning on making swords for the people who killed his father, King Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy).Back at Dragonstone, Davos brings Gendry to meet Jon Snow, warning him to keep his identity a secret.[...] she sees Maester Wolkan (Richard Rycroft) bring a document that once belonged to Maester Luwin.[...] we get to Eastwatch, with Jon meeting Tormund with the rest of his crew.The gate in the Wall opens, and the party of some of the best killers in “Game of Thrones” is ready to go try to capture a wight from the Army of the Dead.

Because everything, even the moon temporarily blotting out the sun, is a commercial opportunity.
There was a moment in modern marketing–and it was just a moment, right around the time social media still felt like a new, fun club we all just joined, but not yet a required media outlet–that a well-timed tweet from a brand to acknowledge, pay tribute to, or joke about a cultural event would be well received, and maybe even thoroughly enjoyed. The Oreo dunk heard ’round the (advertising) world, perhaps a well-timed Denny’s or Arby’s tweet. But then, as with all great ideas, soon rumbled the rest of the herd, and before you knew it White Castle was #NeverForgetting.
