  1. For the battle sequence alone, a 10. The rest, whatever, I'm taking it out of the count. Though Cersei licking water off the ground was pretty satisfying. Also I'm glad to see Arya again, even if for some really ridiculous reason they changed her name to Lana/Lanna?? I like Sansa verbally bitch-slapping Theon in the beginning of their scene but how it ended was kind of lackluster. I wish more had happened, or we had gotten what happened after Theon left. Was really hoping for a weirwood scene or something more than what we got. Also liked: Qyburn: "The work continues." dun dun dun frankenstein a comin' Sam: "Jon... he always comes back." Are you trying to spoil the cliffhanger from the last book Sam? really? That's not cool, man. Night's King with his 'come at me bro' pose at the end. Lol what the hell? Tyrion and Dany was about what I'd expect, so I was content. Didn't like: OLLY. Oh my god end my misery and please stop the overuse of this character. As stated above, end to Theon - Sansa scene wasn't all I hoped for. Ramsey: "I'll need 20 good men." Great so we're going to see some guerilla mission to go mess up Stannis' life? I suppose that would explain the footage of his tents burning. Maybe they just vandalize. Either way I don't have high expectations for this... :dunno:
  2. Strangely, I found myself not hating the Sand Snakes this episode, though the fact that they shared a scene with Bronn likely helped... kudos to Jerome Flynn, who does have a lovely voice, the scene opening on him singing cracked me up pretty good. Tyene's sorta introduction in that scene was played out much better than Obara's earlier in the season with her uh, monologue. Which means we're due for some sort of exposition about Nymeria soon? If the trend continues, anyway. I was most struck by Jonathan Pryce's portrayal of High Sparrow this episode. He's been good all season but he really got to shine this week. So glad they included the few and the many dialogue, and you get a sense of doom when he says to Cersei, "what will we find when we strip away your finery?" That whole scene was excellently acted. I also finally felt like I was getting a taste of the unadulterated Book!Cersei this week, with minimal whitewashing, which was a treat. Having her be the last scene in the episode was a fine choice. Also notable in King's Landing was Tommen. I liked his actor this time around, particularly his line, "I love her... I can't save her." He may be under the spell of his wife, but it was nicely portrayed all the same. Made even sadder by the fact that his mother is actually ruining what happiness he thinks he has by her machinations, and she says she does it all for him. :drunk: SO GLAD the fucking candle in the window thing can die now, I knew that shit wasn't going to work out. I really hope Sansa can think of some way to get herself out. She's working on Theon, which I'm almost glad for because in a way she's rescuing herself by trying to use him as her way out, she doesn't have to be 100% the damsel (I'm grasping at straws here but jfc I don't want her just to be powerless and saved by someone else through no wits of her own...). By next episode's preview I have a feeling she's going ot have to think of a Plan B, C, etc. But, this episode she did still prod at Ramsey about his coming baby brother, which makes me wonder if she will get to have some sort of revenge on the Boltons (even if the target ends up being Fat Walda :frown5: ) though pushing his buttons. Also, I missed it, but during the scene with Ramsey, she grabbed something... was it a weapon or... ? I imagine it'll come into play, so I'll have to rewatch that part. The biggest oh hell no moment for me was Melisandre bold as brass suggesting to Stannis right out hey let's burn your daughter alive. I thought for sure she'd get that idea going through Selyse, but she brings it to Stannis who's like yeah no, get out of my tent. I'm blindly hoping that means he keeps Shireen safe, knowing that's Melisandre's goal. Up til now the show has more subtly (sorta) hinted at Shireen's death, but now that it's out in the open I wonder if it won't happen? Finally, yay Ghost came back!! But that also means he didn't go to Hardhome with Jon... :crying: And Tyrion met Dany. Holy shit, but that's awesome!
  3. A 9/10. I mark it down because of overuse of Chekov Olly (every two seconds the camera panned back to him I mean come on, even the Unsullied watching with me are like "Ok who the hell is this kid??"), the entire thing with Edd being a dissenter now, along with some minor things... I have to say though, I was very impressed by the episode overall and it's by far my favorite this season.
  4. Overall I loved this episode, but the scenes I didn't, I feel very strongly about.
  5. 9/10. Overall I'm still reeling from the WTF of certain parts, so on pure entertainment value.... but there were a lot of things I liked, regardless. Took off a point for Chekov's Olly and the continuation of the GW/Missandei love saga (I felt myself not caring so much I left the physical world for a bit)
  6. I'm back........ but not in black. Shoot I didn't plan this whole comeback thing well, now did I?

  7. こんにちは。

  8. About the black flame part, perhaps a Blackfyre reference?
  9. "Don't waste your time on me, you're already the voice inside my head..."

  10. That was a great catch. I think you're truly onto something there. Haha I need to speed up my re-read and go over these parts again, but yeah, nice one.
  11. I think there's defo something being set up with the weirwoods, at the least. I get the feeling that we're moving towards the faith of the Seven becoming the antagonist religion, and the old gods becoming the "good" or "true" gods. Citing: ---The sparrows and their newly-reinstated relig-military order.........Problems will almost certainly ensue. It is known. ---Bran's whole story line seems to cast a good light on the COTF and old gods
  12. Sometimes I wonder if trying to be tech-savvy will always be such a fail for me!
