  2. Season 5 Episode 2 Review This was an interesting episode that took an in depth look at rulership through the examples of Doran, Cersei,Tyrion / Varys, Dany,Stannis, and Jon. Mercy seemed like a central theme as well. I was anticipating flashbacks scenes, and a lot more from Dorne. The set of Dornish water garden is some of the most elaborate and incredible sets to date. I’m actually thankfully for the reprieve of sexuality in favor of story development. Great to see Drogon all big and fierce , except I’m pretty sure that scene was meant for Quaithe. Drogon just wanted to see what all the fuss was about and get back to swooping down terror. But seriously, where’s Quaithe? I have mixed feelings about Dany executing that guy felt like it was a tad out of character. Still the scene was dramatic and fits into the episode theme and maybe the season theme. Arya’s parts were shallow. I don’t see why they waited till next episode to see her inside, especially if they are going to call the episode House Black and White. On a side note I just have to say how the holy hell can they cast Areo Hotah without a freakin beard?!? He’s a bearded priest for God sake. That’s an easy cast, just get a guy that can grow a beard, but no instead they blatantly disrespect the fans and GRRM, with total disregard for character back story and fan appreciation. Give him a damn beard and a damn axe or otherwise rename the character ! Why couldn’t we get 1 scene of Trystane and Myrcella or some of the sand snakes? Doran is a little on the dull side. Why not include a sweeping shot of the Dornish deserts or mountains as it leads into the location? Dorne is a very exotic place, more than just water gardens, it deserved a better intro compared to the bleak city of Braavos. Ah well. Hey it was funny seeing Lollys, even though thats not how i pictured her. Not bad for episode 2, still holding my interest soundly without pissing off my inner fan boy too much. 7/10

    How would you rate episode 501?

    Overall I liked this episode. I think it's quite an improvement from past season premieres, which are usually slow and limited in characters. We didn't get to see Braavos, The North, or Dorne which was a bit disappointing but we cant expect everything so soon, and we got an awesome scene of dragons, plot development, and of corse gratuitous nudity. Strange that, a lot of characters seem to be more bitter than usual this time, and everyone was saying "perhaps" oddly quite often Great cinematography as usual.Acting was decent, It flowed well. A few surprises. Not a cliffhanger ending, but you cant expect that every time. I give it 6 outta 10

    Not that it has anything at all to do with ego, but how might one go about getting his own humble Theory added to this list? Here's my theory:http://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/topic/124949-the-night-kings-ambition/

    How would you rate episode 405?

    My thoughts on Game of Thrones season 4 episode 5 Contains no spoilers if you've seen the episode. This episode, even though it had dynamic , entertaining action near the end, I felt that the actual plot was uneventful. This midway point in the series is either a calm before the storm or a slumping low point in story before major uphill arcs. I was bothered by the lack of significance here, it was mostly just a lot of talking for the sake of talking. However, it was the standard quality acting that we've come to expect from the series. Where is Varys this hole time, why has he been absent like this entire season? Are they gearing him up for something big? I can't imagine they are. I was really hoping to see Theon & Ramsay reach Moat Caitlin this time, not sure why they are delaying that, or even Arya get on the ship, but we are denied both those occurrences in favor of..just banter. Funny how HBO spared us actually seeing Lysa and Petyr knocking it, while they make sure to show us details of the more glamourus people screwing. lol vanity? The highlight of the episode was defintely seeing Hodor snap chains and snap a neck, while Jon snow battled a ruthless killer. Excellent sword fight. I can't help but feel a little disappointed that Jon wasn't able to beat Karl on his own. He still has a ways to go in terms of fighting skill. However, it was satisfying to see Karl skewered like that, and to see Ghost get his just desserts. The subplot with Vargo/Locke came to a weak and abrupt end. Jon didn't even get to discover his treachery, leaving us to ask what was the point? Maybe Roose Bolton will grow impatient and send others to find out what happened to his hunter? Yet , I doubt it. Would have been much better had they included a conflict between Jon and Locke; a reason for them to pursue one another, but with the massive war at the wall coming I guess the show runners don't have time ( or patience?) Cersei seeking out an ally in Oberyn is rather odd. A complete 180 from the book where Oberyn favors Tyrion. No doubt this will turn around though. I believe this scene was simply just to remind viewers that the Martell's have Cersei's only daughter, which will become very important (in season 5?, 6? or 7?) lol. Where the heck is Varys? spying on them I hope.Dany: this is the point where most fans start moan and groan. Brace yourself, hateful comments and condescending remarks from fans about Danerys are coming. You must give her credit, she sees things through. The girl's got resolve. But will HBO be able to atone for the infamously loathed "Mereen saga" ? -Review by [email protected]

    [Book Spoilers] EP403 Discussion

    My thoughts on last night's episode of Game of Thrones season 4 ep 3: --VERY MINOR SPOILERS-- Good opening scene w/ Sansa. Just how I pictured it. Interesting how neither Sansa nor Littlefinger mentioned Tyrion. Even though they didn't say Amethyst I'm still happy they used the term "the strangler" They actually handled the aftermath of Joff's death really well maybe even better than the book. Marg. was def in on it. It's noteworthy that her grandmother never mentioned Littlefinger or the ramifications the murder had on Tyrion. Varys: oddly absent. Bronn: I can't help but wonder if he is part of an upcoming plot w/ Shae. In the book Cersei didn't resist Jaime nearly as much; I guess they are trying to appeal to the female audience, but Cersei is supposed to be a horrible person, and Jaime is still a sleaze at best, weak to his own indulgences. So now HBO has officially ruined Oberyn, despite that his scene w/ Tywin was an added bonus. I love that they addressed how much he knows about poison and that he could have been but most likely was not the culprit. Side note: Charles Dance is a superb actor. More Stannis? why? nothing's happening. No Mel this time? So we learn that the reason he hasn't gone to the wall yet is due to him not having enough ships. Interesting that they mentioned Braavos and the golden Company...where is this going? Wildlings ! "the Thenns" are legit badass. Dany: this new Daario fails to impress me. Would have been the perfect opportunity to introduce Strong Belwas! Arya: The hound's burn marks or lack there of in this season is really bothering me. I wish her story would move forward. I'm betting the hound will be ambushed. fairly good episode, but not dragon level good. I give it a 6/10

    How would you rate episode 310?

    They really really should have shown a glimpse of Coldhands, something for the non book readers to go, Who the hell is that? and look forward to.

    How would you rate episode 310?

    This episode had nice camera work, great shots / scenery, acting was tremendous , scenes should have transitioned better, nice way to tie up all the loose ends, even better than the books did in some regards, but overall im disappointed especially with the damn secret door at the night fort WTF hbo that was a complete missed opportunity for something original and mysterious. Last scene was just fluff

    [Book Spoilers] EP308 Discussion

    Can hardly believe how Stannis casted a leech into the fire and stated Balon Greyjoy's name. I know this is the way it was in the book but on the show the Greyjoys have become so irrelevant that it doesn't matter. Also dislike the way the show in general seems to almost ignore the events of the war instead focusing on the minor events of each character. Its very easy for the casual viewer to forget there is a war going on and who or what is being fought over. If the show were to include even a little of Asha's exploits possibly the Greyjoys would be relevant but they screwing themselves in future seasons by not including the Greyjoys now.
