‘Hardhome’ is the eighth episode of the fifth season of HBO’s fantasy television series Game of Thrones and the 48th overall. In the picture we see Jorah, the poor knight in love with Dany, expelled from the city for the second time by the woman he loves!
Now that I see some passages of these episodes on Blu-ray, I have the option to change languages including the voices in Latin American Spanish for the voices of the Spanish language as used in the Iberian Peninsula. Hearing Dany how the Spaniards speak, she reminded me of the television series Isabel about which I have written an article. In this episode Dany looks somewhat like what I saw years ago in the Spanish series.
The trick of both series, Isabel and Game of Thrones is to put these little women as if they were mature statesmen perfectly capable of their work. But if you want to see how women reign when empowered in the real world just look at what happens around the West, for example in Sweden.
In this episode Dany is still in the semi-desert region of Meereen, as you can see in the above pic of the pyramid. But feminism continues even in the Arctic world, on the other side of the Wall, in the town Hardhome. When Jon Snow meets with the announced elders of that primitive town, the one who stands out from that group of ‘elders’ is a young woman. Years ago Kit Harington, who played Jon, probably the character most beloved by fans, declared in an interview that Game of Thrones was a feminist series.
