Hedge Knight

Hedge Knight (5/8)

  1. Well, the logic flaws of the Battle of the Blackwater made me dislike that episode to the point that I only gave it a 1. This episode is full of logic flaws, too, and I do dislike the northern plot, and I do dislike what they did to Dorne. And I see that this episode made everything Margaery did this season quiet in vain, but I like the way how Cersei gets what she wants, but in the process causes her only remaining child to commit suicide. And unlike the last episode this episode managed to leave me with a pleased feeling instead of a greatly annoyed one. So, just based on my subjective feelings I give this episode a 7.
  2. Yeah, I guess I can understand that. It's just that I myself have a problem to embrace the atmosphere if the story isn't plausible.
  3. Ok, this episode had some good scenes. I liked the image of Grey Worm killing the two standing slavers who wanted to condemn their comrade to death, while sparing the knealing one. I liked the parley between Dany and the Greyjoy siblings. But that battle was just pure stupidity. Sansa's too proud to accept Vale help and thus their army has really bad odds and she still dares to bitch about it. Then the Stark side positions their man at what looks like the lower ground. Has no one ever tought Rickon not to flew in a straight line? Clever, Jon, ride into bow distance. Clever, Ramsay, not trying to shoot the enemy commander when he's in bow distance. Yeah, Davos, let's break up your lines and send the men into arrow fire. Clever, Boltons, having a cavalry without lances. Yes, Davos, let's send the bowmen into melee. Hide behind the pile of dead bards! (Yes, many people died in that battle, but seriously, they shouldn't pile up like that.) Sure, Stark men, let yourself be surrounded like that, sure, Bolton men, surround them like that. And just don't poke more spears in there, one row is certainly ennough. Well, it seems to be. Clearly, those sprears are not far enough apart from each other to slip inbetween. Nor is there a giant on the Stark side who could just step over the shields. Well, Vale knights come, clear the battlefield. And, the defenders of Winterfell have no competent bowman left except Ramsay, who is the only one who got a good shot at Wun Wun. Jon apparently punches worse than a girl, With Ramsay after all that punches at the head not even having a broken nose. Most stupid splatter. Why did you guys like did episode? Good battle scenes? What good battle scenes?
  4. So I guess in Ossifer Plumm we have another Osiris candidate? Septon Cellador is also one who likes the stuff found behind the wine cellar door.
  5. Oh, that scene is in the book most gloriously! Squirming through a press of knights, squires, and rich townfolk, Sansa reached the front of the gallery just as a blast of trumpets announced the entry of Lord Tywin Lannister. He rode his warhorse down the length of the hall and dismounted before the Iron Throne. Sansa had never seen such armor; all burnished red steel, inlaid with golden scrollwork and ornamentation. His rondels were sunbursts, the roaring lion that crowned his helm had ruby eyes, and a lioness on each shoulder fastened a cloth-of-gold cloak so long and heavy that it draped the hindquarters of his charger. Even the horse's armor was gilded, and his bardings were shimmering crimson silk emblazoned with the lion of Lannister. The Lord of Casterly Rock made such an impressive figure that it was a shock when his destrier dropped a load of dung right at the base of the throne. Joffrey had to step gingerly around it as he descended to embrace his grandfather and proclaim him Savior of the City. Sansa covered her mouth to hide a nervous smile.
  6. Just me nitpicking again: Mary breastfeeding Jesus is Maria lactans. The pieta shows Mary holding dead Jesus. Anyway, this made me start to think about pieta images in the series, and the most obvious is of course Cersei holding dead Joffrey. Which is kind of funny, given that pieta means something like piety and pity, which aren't really traits that one would normally associate with Cersei and Joff. IIRC, Catelyn doesn't get the chance to hold dead Robb, does she? But I think she later cradles his crown. Do we get to see any other mothers with their dead child(ren)?
  7. Just some small corrections: Sam gives the books to the sailors to pay for the pssage and they intend to sell them to the Citadel. So these weapons likely made it into the hands for which they were intended, the Citadel just doesn't get them for free. Littlefinger only came to King's Landing after Lysa convinced Jon Arryn that he was clever with money, so only some time after Jon becoming Robert's hand. Back when Aerys killed Rickard and Bran he was likely at the little tower at the fingers, licking his wounds from the duel with Brandon. Yeah, pomegranate is "apple garnet" or rather "garnet apple". So we get Arya throwing (like you throw a grenade) a red (which is the colour of garnet) at Sansa, which causes Sansa's dress to become black (like something blackened by a grenade explosion)? I love your observation!
  8. And of course, there are lots of icy eyes in the story, e.g. those of the Others, and I think there was a king Brandon Ice-Eyes Stark. And I found this lovely quote: If you want another connection of Ice/Eyes to Isis and co, there is the Eye of Horus.
  9. Bonito flakes!

  10. Yes, the Astapor scene was brilliant, I totally loved it. In general an amazing episode. Only point that really annoyed me was Cat's appearance in Bran's green dream. Why do the show guys hate her so much?
  11. Honestly the swordfighting in this season (at least up to here, I am still watching, so I don't know about the next episodes) disappoints me a bit. IIRC it was better in the previous seasons, more realistic, less posing and show. Still, I liked Beric vs. Sandor better than Brienne vs. Jaime. It was ok... and the fire was cool, that I can agree to. :D Robb beheading Karstark went a bit to smooth for my taste. I don't want a shiny, perfect, just, skilled Robb. I'm a bit put off by the dead babies in glases Selyse keeps... The Jaime and Brienne in the bath scene is lovely :wub: Otherwise... average GoT episode (which is to say, it's good :P )
