Sometimes it's nice when the nerds behind the nerdy thing you're nerdy about are nerdy about other things you're nerdy about. Cue Game of Thrones' linguist David Peterson. He revealed an Easter egg from the third episode of this season, from the scene in which Daario Naharis goes up against the champion of Meereen. The champion shouts something at Daenerys, but Missandei is not translating what he's saying. "He's actually saying a Low Valyrian translation of the French guy's insults in Monty Python and the Holy Grail," Peterson explained. It was apparently the idea of series co-creator D. B. Weiss. Because pissing in the sand in front of Daenerys is not enough, a real bad guy also farts in her general direction.
