I gave it a 9



Good-



The intensity and emotion behind Tyrion's 'confession' got the adrenalin flowing and goosebumps appearing. Forget "Dacarys" that was the most powerful scene of the series imo. Hats off to Peter Dinklage! They better not hold him back from going dark Tyrion....he owns that stage!



Oberyn- His wit and badass persona really shined through (not standing up when Tywin enters chamber, "yes, we get it you have allot of poison!" and asking Shae a very serious sassy question). Yet, he also seemed to be trying to throw Tyrion a bone by questioning the witnesses....showing he is a decent guy and cool. Not just Bisexual. I also liked the hints of the him poisoning Tywin theory.



I loved Jaime's concern for his brother and Margaery looking guilty (on her grandmothers behalf) when they show Sansa's necklace. She knows Tyrion is innocent and her guilt is showing.



Dany getting educated on her inaccuracy of "I will serve injustice with Justice" Hopefully, the Unsullied will start questioning Khaleesi's badass actions.



Stannis not being impressed with the Titan. His facial expressions are comical!



Varys's hidden agenda in looking at the Iron Throne (desires distract you from power) his goal is the Iron Throne....for Aegon!



Bad-



Yara's speech was very inspirational and powerful but wow, they had it filtered with Ramsay porn. What a way to cheapen a badass scene! That is being added into the unnecessary Sex bundle. I'm also annoyed she ran away from Dogs!

10. I loved every bit. Yara was the weakest part and yet I enjoyed that immensely. Even though I kinda like Yara - as both a book reader and a show lover, I take a smug satisfaction as a pro-Stark fan in watching Ironborn flee.




Also... EMMY FOR DINKLAGE DAMMIT!

She ran away from giant,vicious dogs and armed men after realizing her brother had become a shell of himself. Not well executed but she didn't exactly run from just dogs.

. Also a boat from Pyke to Dreadfort? Seriously?

'Yara' says at the end of S3 she was going to sail around the entire continent 'all the way up the Narrow Sea' to get to the Dreadfort. It was the reason so many were 'adamant' that Melisandre would be giving her 'there is only one hell' line to Yara instead of the far more obvious Shireen.

Exactly. It'd be like taking a boat from California to New York. Doable... just a very long way to go.

It didn't make sense then either. Sometimes stuff just will not fit in my brane and that's one. I know Theon was more familiar with the concept of walking on land than Ashs but still...

Still it was very anti-climatic.

Oh I agree. Much easier to raid the Dreadfort from Moat Cailin. The whole story was very weak, but they did establish that sailing from Pyke to near the Dreadfort was do-able, which it is.

The Trial and Peter Dinklage owned this episode. The rest was very disjointed. Yara / Ramsey? What the hell was that? The Trial's execution and incredible acting saved this episode. I gave this one an 8 for Peter alone, as bad as the rest of the episode was, he was just that good.

Was hovering around 8-9 for most of the episode. Raid at the Dreadfort felt very rushed, but I could see what they were trying to do, so points for effort. But then a man called Peter Dinklage came along...



10. Absolutely a 10. Is that what you want to hear?

if it weren't for the messed up end of the yara/ theon scene it would have been a great episode, otherwise I give it an 8

I'm deep into Season 7 of a 24 marathon and that scene put me right back in JackWorld for a moment.

Didn't like the Asha scene. However, Alfie Allen - good gods, he is nailing it as Reek. That made the whole weirdness kind of worth it.



Everything else was fantastic. Even Emilia Clarke was mostly watchable. I smirked a little when Hizdahr zo Loraq showed up.



The entire trial and all scenes related were fantastic. Dinklage is a beast. I was actually scared when he went on the tirade at the end. Holy shitsnacks.



I gave it an 8 - I really didn't like the Asha scene.

I loved the Deradfort scene. I'm not that far into the books so I'm practically a non-book reader at least in terms of what is happening now. It's conclusion was a little disappointing but it was ok. The speech yara gave at the beginning was badassary at it's finest.It established the Iron Born in terms of the show. They've not been given much time until now. It also showed us that they are not just all talk and especially Yara. We get to see why she's such a respected and favoured military leader. (even though she failed) Where the blood on Ramsey came from was not explained, which was a bit weird. But his scene with Reek was good and served to enhance both characters.



The Iron bank was good. We got to see Stannis outside of his comfort zone which added something new to the character. I love Mark Gatiss epically creepy as always.



A bit of Oberyn and.... MACE TYRELL GOT SOME LINES!!! OMG FINALLY. All the kings landing stuff before the trial was cool.



And then the trial. I'm not sure there's too much I can say that hasn't already been said. Great performance.



I gave the episode a 9

9. The ONLY complaint I have is that the bones presented to Dany were goat bones, not child bones. If they show her the bones of the kid in a later episode, I'll go back and give this a 10.



Otherwise, PERFECT.

The yara/asha scene is about Reek. It's sole goal was to show that Theon Greyjoy is dead, and with regards to that it was extremely successful.
