Mr Fixit Posted May 14, 2014 Share Posted May 14, 2014 (edited) worst episode of the series (barring The Night Lands) Yeah, about that. Why does everyone hate poor Night Lands so much? :( I really dig that episode! KL stuff is fantastic, we see the introduction of the one and only Salladhor Saan, Theon's arrival on Pyke is handled very well, and in hindsight I especially like the changes made to Jon's story - witnessing a WW carry away the baby - because it leads to Jon's great explanation to Mance on why he left the NW (much better and more believable than in the books, I think). Is it because of all the nudity in this episode? Theon on the boat, that hilarious and truly over-the-top scene in LF's brothel that cracks me up every time I see it, and then Stannis and Mel? It was a bit much, I'll grant you that. Coupled with some of the more pronounced deviations from the books, I can understand why people rate it lower. As I said, though, in my opinion it's a very good episode. If I had to pick the weakest episodes so far - and even those I like as they have enough to recommend them - those would probably be: 1x02 The Kingsroad and 2x08 The Prince of Winterfell. Those two are the only episodes I feel are really mediocre. Everything else is at least good. Edited May 14, 2014 by Mr Fixit Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
