Trouble in Paradise: Two Swords Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode 1

"Tell him the Lannisters aren't the only ones who pay their debts."

- Lord Oberyn Martell


At the start of the episode, we see that Ned Stark's beloved sword, "Ice", which is made of Valyrian steel is melted to be formed into 2 swords by Tywin's blacksmith. Tywin gives one of the swords to Jaime.

The Lannisters are slowly unraveling...First, Jaime finally told his father, Tywin, that he doesn't want to leave the Kingsguard and be Lord of Casterly Rock. 

Second, Cersei broke up with brother-lover Jaime! Telling him that he took too long to come back. 

Third Lannister to be in the hot water, Tyrion's relationship with Shae becomes rocky. Is he falling in love with Sansa Stark?

The fourth unraveling comes in the form of vengeful Lord Oberyn Martell of Dorne. Is he in King's Landing to avenge the death of his sister, nephew and niece or just representing his brother, Lord Doran, in King Joeffrey's wedding?

So many questions and these will be answered in due course.

Sansa Stark is beginning to show more courage and strength. Jon Snow gives testimony about the Wildings coming to attack Castle Black. And finally, Arya Stark finds her sword, 'Needle", which was taken from her by one of the King's Landing soldiers but without shedding some blood.

Daenerys Targaryen is continuing with her quest of freeing all the slaves in the Free cities. And a shocking encounter along the road to Meereen makes her more adamant in her goal. Her dragons are becoming too difficult to handle.

There is definitely trouble in paradise! 

Can't wait for the next episode. I know that something big is going to happen.
