Now that season two of Game of Thrones is over, what better way to help momentarily forget that it won’t be back on again for another year by remembering the best quotes of the season?

It was not easy selecting these quotes, because there are just so many great ones. I tried to do a balance of funny one-liners and ones that made you think, but please feel free to share your own favourites in the comments.

Naturally, there are going to be a lot from Tyrion. He pretty much delivers something memorable every time he’s on screen, but here are a couple I particularly enjoyed.

“You love your children. It’s your one redeeming quality. That and your cheekbones.” – Tyrion

The constant banter between Tyrion and Cersei this whole season has just been excellent to watch, whether it’s Tyrion delivering the insult or Cersei. The actors have done really well to make every scene between them engaging.

“I will hurt you for this. A day will come when you think you’re safe and happy and your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth. And you will know the debt is paid.” – Tyrion

Not only does Peter Dinklage (Tyrion) have great comedic timing, but he also knows how to make threats sound as menacing as possible.

TV watchers, remember. A Lannister always pays his debts.

“Why are all the gods such viscous c*nts? Where’s the God of tits and wine?” – Tyrion

Funny as usual, but that’s expected of Tyrion. I would have liked to include Tyrion slapping Joffrey again, but unfortunately I can’t really convey the deep satisfaction or impact of the slap with just quotation marks.

 


 

Another Lannister, Tyrion’s older sister Cersei, also had some memorable lines of her own.

“If the city falls, these fine women should be in for a bit of a rape.” – Cersei

So I had to put this one in. Drunk Cersei was hilarious during that whole episode, but the way Lena Heady (Cersei) delivered it, as if you could only get a little bit raped, changed the tone from horror to funny (only in her utter disregard for the welfare of her court.)

“Tears aren’t a woman’s only weapon. The best one is between your legs.” – Cersei

Cersei was just dropping truth bombs the entire episode, but this one really stuck out, as it’s not only horrible but true, especially in the world of Game of Thrones where it truly sucks to be a woman.

 


 

Can we talk about Bronn? Because Bronn is just awesome. He doesn’t take any crap and tells it to you straight, never mind whether you want to hear it or not.

“There’s no cure for being a c*nt”– Bronn

The bluntness of the statement and the nonplus way he says it make for comedy gold. I’m sure there were many people who were fist pumping to the truth of Bronn’s words for the most hated character in the series, Joffrey.

 


 

Still in King’s Landing, one of the most cunning men is Varys, who often has wisdom to share.

“A very small man can cast a very large shadow.” – Varys

This is a significant line that echoes throughout the season and foreshadows Tyrion’s power and impact on King’s Landing.

 


 

Moving beyond the Wall, newcomer Ygritte shone in all her scenes.

“You know nothing, Jon Snow.” – Ygritte

I know there are many more amazing lines that she delivered, ones that made you laugh out loud at her vulgarity and Jon’s discomfort, but as a book fan, this line is so important to Ygritte as a character, that I was on the edge of my seat waiting to hear it.

 


 

And now for another badass, Arya Stark. I loved her in season one as the girl who didn’t want to be a lady, and now I love her as the ghost of Harrenhal, deciding the death of her enemies.

“Anyone can be killed” – Arya

Don’t we know it. RIP Ned Stark.

I loved this line for the hidden threat behind her words, as well as its truth.

 


 

Turning to Arya’s new found friend, we have the secret ninja assassin Jaqen H’ghar.

“A man needs a name” – Jaqen H’ghar

Aaah, is there anything cooler than an attractive man talking in third person? Sure, it’s a bit strange, but it definitely makes his character memorable and intriguing.

 


 

Finally, there is Danerys, a fan favourite from season one.

“I am Danerys Stormborn and I will take what is mine, with fire and blood.” – Danerys

Although her storyline kind of went nowhere this season and she was acting a bit spoiled at times, this quote, and her conviction when saying it, reminded me that Danerys is not someone to cross and that she is a strong female character.

 


 

Honourable mentions:

“Any man dies with a clean sword, I’ll rape his f***ing corpse.” – The Hound (Sandor Clegane)

“But this is Stannis Baratheon. I’d have a better chance seducing his horse.” – Cersei

“And now I’ve struck a king. Did my hand fall from my wrist?” – Tyrion

WB has revealed that it will take the threat of an alien race, The Dominators, to unite the heroes of Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl.

With Supergirl entering the Arrow-verse, she will be bringing aliens along — though it remains unclear how her Earth will integrate with Earth-1, where the casts of the other three series reside; Barry visited Kara’s Earth on Supergirl last season when he ran fast enough to open a portal.

“This year, for our mega ‘Arrowverse’ crossover, we’re taking inspiration from a DC crossover from the late 1980s known as Invasion!, which featured an alien race called the Dominators, who’d previously vexed the Legion of Superheroes,” Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow EP Marc Guggenheim says in a press release.

“This year, for our mega ‘Arrowverse’ crossover, we’re taking inspiration from a DC crossover from the late 1980s known as Invasion!, which featured an alien race called the Dominators, who’d previously vexed the Legion of Superheroes,” Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow EP Marc Guggenheim says in a press release.

“We’re using cutting edge prosthetics and computer effects to achieve a feature film-quality look which is faithful to Invasion! artist Todd McFarlane’s interpretation of the characters.”

The Dominators

The Dominators, collectively known as the Dominion, are an alien race from the farthest reaches of the universe. A technologically-advanced species who specialize in genetics, their society is extremely hierarchical, with status depending on the size of a red circle that appears on their foreheads.

Invasion! was a major, three-issue crossover event in 1989 that featured the Dominators joining an Alien Alliance to wipe out humanity due to the threat the meta-gene that allows for humans to develop superpowers presents.

When they traveled to Earth, heroes and villains alike teamed up to fight to protect the world. The Dominators were also an enemy of the Legion of Superheroes in the 30th century.

It’s also worth noting that Arrow‘s 100th’s episode will air during the crossover, so we should definitely expect something special.

Are you looking forward to the crossover between ‘Arrow,’ ‘The Flash,’ ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ and ‘Supergirl’?

Hypable’s ‘Gilmore Girls’ music playlist

‘Where You Lead I Will Follow’ by Carole King and Louise Goffin

What better way to kick off a Gilmore Girls playlist than with the show’s famous theme song? It’s the perfect opening song. (And if you choose to play it on repeat, that’s completely acceptable.)
 

‘This is Hell’ by Elvis Costello

It makes perfect sense that Jess’ first impression of Stars Hollow would be narrated by this song. After all, the starry-eyed small town life can be kind of overwhelming at first.
 

‘There She Goes’ by The La’s

Fact: This was the very first song played on Gilmore Girls! It accompanied an introductory look around Stars Hollow before introducing our favorite gals. Oh, the memories!
 

‘Then She Appeared’ by XTC

What a perfect song to mark Rory and Jess’ first kiss. It’s perfectly sweet and tender and just oh-so-totally them. It’s hard not to imagine the scene when listening to this song.
 

‘Fell in Love With a Girl’ by The White Stripes

This was one of the songs that Hep Alien played at their very first gig! Sure, it wasn’t really a great night for Jess/Rory or the band, but it started out well enough!
 

‘Reflecting Light’ by Sam Phillips

As if Luke and Lorelai weren’t cute enough together at Luke’s sister’s wedding, they had to go and dance beautifully to this tender song.
 

‘Human Behaviour’ by Björk

What would a Gilmore Girls playlist be without including a song from one of the girls’ biggest inspirations? Just take a listen and think of their famous snow creation.
 

‘Eternal Flame’ by The Bangles

Make one of Lorelai’s favorite bands one of your favorite bands by listening to this track on our Gilmore Girls playlist on repeat!
 

‘One Line’ by PJ Harvey

“I love you, you idiot” is probably one of the most quotable lines on the show. This song just set the mood and really made it that much more memorable. It’s nothing less than perfect.
 

‘So Says I’ by the Shins

Who could ever forget the spring break scene where Paris tries to make out with Rory on the dance floor? The fact that The Shins were playing this song live during the scene just made it so much better.
 

‘Time Bomb’ by Rancid

Not only did Lane dance to this catchy tune in Rory’s room toward the beginning of the first season, but Hep Alien eventually covers it during a performance later in the series!
 

‘When You and I Were Young Maggie Blues’ by Bing Crosby and Gary Crosby

Watching Rory and Richard bond over this song in the hospital room is still one of the most memorable scenes of the series. Pour one out for the wonderful Richard Gilmore. We miss you, friend.
 

‘Inside Out’ by The Mighty Lemon Drops

The Gilmore Girls series finale was such a bittersweet episode, but this song definitely made for one of the most memorable moments: Luke and Lorelai kissing!
 

‘If I Could Write’ by Sam Phillips

This emotional song sums up the Gilmore girls’ love for each other perfectly, especially in times of sadness. Who could ever forget this song playing as Rory packs for a grip to Europe with Emily after fighting with Lorelai?
 

‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’ by Cyndi Lauper

Lorelai and Emily Gilmore walking a catwalk to Cyndi Lauper’s greatest hit? Classic. Though they may not have gotten along often, at least they could bond over this song.
 

‘O’Oh’ by Yoko Ono

Remember that time when Rory skipped school to walk through New York with Jess, stopping for food and record shopping? This song was the perfect accompaniment for their adventure.
 

The La La Tunes by Sam Phillips

Okay, so these aren’t really actual songs per say, but Gilmore Girls wouldn’t be Gilmore Girls without them (and so neither would the Gilmore Girls playlist)! They’re so iconic!
 

‘My Little Corner of the World’ by Yo La Tengo

We decided to end our Gilmore Girls playlist on a cute note with this sweet song. The mental image of Rory and Lorelai runing at each other from across town during the season 1 finale is enough to make anyone smile.

 

What song(s) would you add to our ‘Gilmore Girls’ music playlist?
