Game Of Thrones Season 3: Access’ Guide To Episode 308’s New Character & Big Moments
AccessHollywood.com’s guide to Episode 308 — Daenerys, Melisandre, Gendry, Tyrion and Samwell
LOS ANGELES, Calif. --
A handsome new man crossed paths with Daenerys Targaryen in this week’s episode of “Game of Thrones.” And, in our Sunday night episode wrap-up on AccessHollywood.com (for the non-book readers), we get to know Daario Naharis (and the actor who plays him) a little better.
Also, we rundown the highlights from Episode 308, “Second Sons,” including which two characters walked down the aisle, who got hot and heavy with a woman only to end up tied to a bedpost and leeched, and the result of Samwell Tarly’s second matchup with a White Walker.
Daario Naharis (Ed Skrein)
How He Was Introduced: He was one of three captains of the Second Sons (an army of sellswords, who were working for the Yunkish), who met Daenerys Targaryen & Company in a tent outside of Yunkai. He called out one of Daenerys’ right hand men — Ser Barristan Selmy — who fibbed to the Second Sons that they had an Unsullied army of 10,000, when they only have 8,000. Later, he was the unlucky one who was chosen to go on a mission to kill Dany — an idea drafted by his fellow captain, Mero (Mark Killeen). It was bad news for Mero, though, as he ended up losing his head. Daario killed his fellow captains and tossed their heads on the floor of Dany’s bathroom, and pledged his loyalty (and his heart) to the dragon queen.
Characters He’s Tied To: Daenerys Targaryen, her handmaiden/translator Missandei, Ser Jorah Mormont and Ser Barristan Selmy.
Where You’ve Seen Ed Before: You probably haven’t. Ed has just a few acting credits to his name. Besides acting, Ed is known in his native UK for his rap career. He’s released a couple of albums overseas.
Here’s what happened to our established characters:
Arya Stark: Last week, after fleeing the Brotherhood Without Banners, Arya was captured by Sandor Clegane/The Hound. This week, she woke up in his little makeshift camp next to a rock. Picking up the rock, Arya crept over to where she thought The Hound was sleeping and contempleted killing him. He wasn’t snoozing and after he opened his eyes, he told her he’d break her hands if she couldn’t kill him in one go, so she decided to put the rock back down. Later, as the two rode through the countryside, The Hound revealed his plans. He’s taking her to The Twins, where her brother, Robb Stark, and her mother, Catelyn Stark, are for the wedding of her uncle, Edmure Tully. Edmure is marrying (in a make-good deal for Robb) one of Walder Frey’s (who owns The Twins) daughters.
Gendry Baratheon: Gendry only recently found out his last name is Baratheon, and this week, he got to experience a little of the delights that come with being part of a major family, before it all turned sour. Gendry got to taste some fine wine, and then, Melisandre seduced him. But, Melisandre cut things off a little short, tied Gendry to a bedpost, and put leeches on his chest and manhood. As he writhed about in pain, a newly released (from the dungeons) Davos Seaworth walked in the chamber with Gendry’s uncle, Stannis Baratheon, for a demonstration in how to place a curse on someone. Taking the leeches off Gendry, Melisandre handed them to Stannis, who dropped each one into a fire as he named the usurpers (the three men in Westeros who have claimed the title “King”) — Robb Stark, Balon Greyjoy (Theon’s dad) and Joffrey Baratheon.
Tyrion Lannister & Sansa Stark: Sansa Stark has had a lot of things go wrong in her life and they got even worse when, in place of her late father, King Joffrey (who ordered her father’s death back in Season 1), walked her down the aisle to marry Tyrion. As he walked away from the altar, Joffrey removed the stool Tyrion needed to stand on to put the marriage cloak on his teen (14!) bride. The post-ceremony banquet didn’t go much better for Sansa or Tyrion. As Tyrion drank and drank and drank, his father, Tywin Lannister, insisted he get Sansa pregnant — immediately, while in a corner, Joffrey threatened to rape his former fiancee after Tyrion passed out for the night. Things ended a little quieter for the twosome, luckily. Tyrion showed his kind side to Sansa and suggested he’d only perform his marital duties if Sansa — one day — wanted him too, and Joffrey did not come by.
Samwell Tarly: Last season, Samwell, out on a mission with his fellow men of the Night’s Watch, Grenn and Edd, found some dragonglass. In Episode 308, he finally got a chance to use it. As a White Walker came for Gilly’s baby, Sam hit the creature with his sword. The White Walker broke the sword into a million pieces and threw Sam aside. In perhaps his bravest move to date, Sam sprung up from the cold snow, grabbed the dragonglass dagger and stabbed the White Walker in the back only to see that very White Walker break into a million pieces. He and Gilly then ran off, leaving the dagger behind.
