Mediocre episode



Some good moments..



-The Tywin/Tommen scene worked


-Sansa/LF was executed well


-Tyrion/Pod was nice


-Kit Harrington has learned how to act



Some bad moments...



-Jaime/Cersei WTF, either that scene was misdirected or misacted because I doubt they were trying to do a rape scene


-Sam and Gilly will continue to bore us to tears for many an episode I'm sure


-How many Dornish pornos are needed before we get that Oberyn is a passionate bisexual man.



...and of course we need to be subjected to another insufferable Dany badass scene(well acted though) while Stannis tells Davos he's running out of time. :bang:

6, it was ok, nothing stood out, except I felt the acting was a bit over the top all around. It felt more melodramatic than dramatic to me. Oberyn keeps doing the same thing, raise chin, stare, cock head to the side a bit make a quip. Not really sure if that was Stannis panic but he never seems to have the answer to anything. Dink is pushing his accent to hard, it's like he is speaking to children all the time. Sort of incest rape, a lot of Sam not doing much, a little of Jon being broody but not much else. The Wildlings, I am going to eat mommy and daddy, yes I know your so bad and scary, you can't act but so scary, really. Oh god and little finger elongating every word he could. Speaking of bad acting Tywin and Tommen what was that? It was like some dark version of school house rocks. Arya and the hound came off almost like a comedy schtick to me, meet the Odd couple. I thought the gate to Meereen was the best part in terms of production and melodrama, Dany has always been a bit melodramatic, so fit right in with her.

Drama or Soap Opera can be a fine line at times, I don't think D&D would know a fine line if they tripped over it, probably hit it with a sledge hammer like most things if they did. I don't mind the changes, or anything, just thought the acting, themes, and plot were a bit off tonight, and I didn't find much interesting in the episode.

But you gave it a 6?

I really liked this episode. There was a few cheesy parts, like when Grey Worm, Mormont, and Barristem all took turns asking to fight the lone warrier, and then each took on a puppydog face when Dany turned them down. But overall, great episode, and I'll have to watch it again to be sure, but it might be my favorite of the 3 so far...

7/10



1. Sex scene with Oberyn was too long



2. I loved the Thenns scene, but it was too, "Lord of the Ringish" and doesn't fit into ASOIAF/GOT



3. The Duel scene was great . . . but I miss Strong Belwas . . .



4. Everything else was solid, except for Sam sending Gilly to a filthy brothel to raise a kid. Dumb Sam!

I'm torn. Most of the episode deserves a 9 or me... but Jaime turning into a rapist does not. I don't know how I'll reconcile the two and rate this one. I might have to see how they handle it in interviews and in next week's episode because apparently they didn't mean for it to come across the way it really, really did.

Loved this episode, thought I might be biased as a book reader. I LOVED Daenerys scene, this episode held a lot of promise and setup for next episide.



There are many who seem disappoitned, but you need these episodes to both save budget, and to build up to the next episode. Seems we have impending Wildings attack. Sir Davros is hatching a plan we don't know what yet. Tywin and Oberyn are working togethers (though uneasy) and Meeren, Sansa has found her way off of Kings Landing finally shows the tension of who the slaves will react to The Queens speech and show.



In context this was a fantastic epidsode, call it the cliff hanger before the climax of several plots.

9.

That last speech was epic. The command that Clarke has over that language is so got damn hot.

Agreed. I gave it an 8. Loved cocky Daario vs Meereen's champion. Kissing one of his "ladies" was a nice touch. The rest of the episode was just ok, but the ending was great. Edited by Nictarion

Hmm I thought it was the best episode of the three. Last weeks was a bit disappointing just because I expected a little more from it.

There was a couple of things that I didn't like however. Primarily the Jaime/Cersei scene. Jaime is one of my favorite characters and he has been in the process of a very good redemption arc since last season. I was slightly distracted during that scene but it seemed like he pretty much raped Cersei. Was that in the books? I can't recall.

And yeah the Sam scenes were boring but the storyline w/Gilly never interested me to begin with so I didn't expect much. I can't think of anything else that I disliked to be honest. The Arya/Hound scenes tend to have some lines that really crack me up.

Everything else was pretty good in my opinion. I think Ser Creighton, your getting much too critical about the episode. It's a TV show and not everything can be perfect. I don't see how LF and Tyrion's voices/accents are an issue at all. The wildlings should be presented in a somewhat darker light. I'd agree that the whole cannibal thing isn't necessary but attacking that village the way they did felt kinda fitting. Makes them actually feel threatening to some likeable characters from the NW (Jon/Sam/Pyp/Ed etc).

I don't know how the Tommen/Tywin scene was terribly acted...at all. I liked that Tywin basically admitted that Joff was a crap ruler and the part about 'strength' not being the most important characteristic of a ruler.

Good episode, a solid 8.

Well, everyone wants to see Olyvar's arse again. God's death, that thing can block out the sun...

Anyway, I give it an 8. I actually kinda went "kyaa!" when I saw the Gates of Meereen. So much detail. Absolutely gorgeous. As for the Jamie - Cersei scene...why?

8 overall.



The Jaime/Cersei scene gets a pitiful 1 from me, in terms of adaptation, character development, and for adding unnecessary rape into a show overloaded with violence against women.



On the other hand, I really loved Sansa's escape. I've never been a fan of Aidan Gillen's acting, but the scene was still beautifully shot. I also loved Dany's final 10 minutes. I don't get the hate for her, I think that was awesome.

without Dany scene it would be 5, with her I raised to 6



Sam scenes really killed the episode for me. I don't know what will happen with him and this baby, but instead of all the other interesting characters we would like to see and feel (Bran, Jon, Rickon, more Martells...) we get 10 minutes of borring Sam and Gily. :dunce:



I hate how they represented Jaime, while we are starting to like him in the book show is representing him as a total jerk, that even Cercei seems likable in comparison to him.



Sansa and Littlefinger scene could be even more epic in my opinion.



Arya and Hound were interesting but still waste of time.



Wildlings scene was great.



Tywin nailed it in both scenes, especially with Oberyn. "Categorically" was perfect!


Tommen scene was also good. I am starting to like Tommen!



New Daario was finaly likeable (and it could be more stylish without pissing), I see here that some peple disliked short "fight", but for me it was perfect, that pain in the ass on the horse is theatrically preparing as he will do a heroic thing and before everything starts he is down :) I was so excited!



Waiting for more!

Before I rate the episode, because my screen isn't in the best conditions... I have to ask: did we see Oberyn's ass? That might get the episode a few more points.
