Mother of Mini Dragons Posted May 21, 2014 Share Posted May 21, 2014 (edited) I gave it a 7 initially and after re-watching, I'm sticking with my 7. The Tyrion scenes and the Eyrie scenes were excellent and well-done. I was a bit jarred initially from not hearing "Only Cat", but the scene works really well. I wish it were longer. They could have cut-out that pointless Melissandre scene and added more at the Eyrie. The actress who plays Lysa is amazing. This episode could have easily been a 9 or 10 had it not been for the Melissandre and Dany stuff. I'm officially bored with Dany's story and her characterization. I'm not buying this new Daario at all and don't think he and Emilia have any chemistry and I'm guessing that's the reason we didn't see them actually having sex, since we know how much this show loves a sex scene or maybe it only likes non-consensual or prostitute sex scenes. Who knows? I'm always happy to see Jon, but that scene really served no purpose except to inform us how much the men at the Night's Watch (or those in charge) really suck and we already know that. I did enjoy Brienne and Pod's scenes and loved seeing Hot Pie again. Peter Dinklage killed it this episode. I do think he's on his way to another Emmy and deservedly so. I'm also incredibly impressed by Pedro Pascal. The scene between those two was incredibly moving. If I were judging on Tyrion and Eyrie scenes alone, the episode would be a 10. Melissandre & Dany dragged it down to a 7 for me. Edited May 21, 2014 by Mother of Mini Dragons Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
