In this lesson, you’re going to see three quotes from Game of Thrones (S8 Ep3) that are interesting for English learners.
1: “THERE’S NO NEED TO EXECUTE ME, SIR DAVOS, I’LL BE DEAD BEFORE THE DAWN.”
This is what Melisandre said to Sir Davos when she arrived at Winterfell. To execute someone is to kill someone. If you say there is no need to do something you’re saying it’s not necessary.
– there’s no need to study so much grammar
– there’s no need to worry. I’m sure they’re fine.
She also used the simple future to predict her own future.
Here’s a conversational lesson on predicting the future: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=de9BaZeLPII
2: “YOU SAID WE’D MEET AGAIN.”
Arya said this to Melisandre.
We’d = we would
This is the past for “we will.” In a past episode, Melisandre said to Arya, “we will meet again.”
Here are more examples:
-you said you would come to the party
-he said he would do it but he didn’t
3: “MAYBE WE SHOULD’VE STAYED MARRIED.”
Tyrion said this to Sansa. This is an example of use should for past situations.
Tyrion was married to Sansa but they didn’t stay together. Tyrion is saying that maybe that was a mistake. That, maybe, it would have been better to stay married.
-I shouldn’t have said that
– He should have scored
