Tyrion1991 Posted April 8, 2014 Share Posted April 8, 2014 Arya had the best scenes. The money shot for this episode was when she finally got involved in the fight and shoved the longsword in his chest. Dragons looked cool. Slightly soured by Jorah the walking prop showing up. Jon facing the court and I loved that they brought back Janos Slynt. I was not expecting that. As well as the guy out of Stella. Good scene and a good part by Jon. I like that Sansa met Ser Dontos. A little forced how it occurs, but I loved the expression on her face and it felt like it gave her some agency in accepting this guys gift. Jamie was great to see, wise cracking with Brienne, Tywin and Joffery. White book references were cool as well. Reforging ice was a great way to reintroduce the series. The dead child pointing at Meereen was really dark, especially with how in your face it was being up there crucified. Bad points Azog...THE DEFILER All the tyrell stuff. Unneccesary. Oberyns introduction in the brothel. Other things I won't complain about the scene with Daario and Dany in of itself. I think Emilia Clarke actually shows quite a lot of nuance and the writing does address that what hes doing is corney but she says "you're a gambler" and she does talk shit to him but he persists. It works. But I dislike what this says about season 4 and the differences which have and are being made about the TV show. Tyrion kind of fell flat for me which is odd. He felt more like a prop to introduce Oberyn and seemed so anxious in every scene it was off putting. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
