I liked the scene with her and Myranda too, for the most part. She showed that she wasn't the little fool child that she was when this war first started. She didn't want to take shit from some peasant, and she told her to piss off. Well done, Sansa.

It was good, but it felt like a sop to the audience in anticipation of what was to come. It didn't require much insight or political acumen to tell Myranda to sod off and she is just a servant after all.

But small bits of characterization are better than none at all.

It would have made more sense if at the ending scene Sansa took control of the bedding and laid into Ramsay fucking him senseless.. where is the empowerment?



The gift better not mean a new Stark/Bolton baby.. lol.. I cannot wait to see episode 7..

Sansa's a fucking virgin and barely even kissed a guy. She's not going to explode into a sexual creature and ride Ramsey like a pornstar, especially not when he makes Theon watch. Just because Sansa isn't able to control Ramsey, a complete violent psychopath, it doesn't mean her character has regressed or is incapable of being intelligent or interesting.

The first point would've been too un-Sansa like. Where has this Sansa empowerment come from? Only thing I've read about it is that Sophie had though that she'd be less a victim this season but after reading the script she knew it wasn't so.

The second point? That would be one of those kinda hilarious moments where you're like "Seriously? You wrote this into the show?" (I mean it in a disbelieving, "holy crap they are insane in a good way", way, not bashing the show. S5 has IMO been the best season since season 2.)

This is not true.

Yes, those books were FILLED with "filler". There is no way they could adapt Feast and Dance "faithfully" and keep people awake.

BUT...you most certainly could create their condensed 10 episode TV adaptation by picking and choosing material between both books.

Problem is, while in previous seasons the show had to choose from a wide range of amazing source material and condense it into ten episodes, dance and feast might just have enough condensed GOOD material in both of them COMBINED for ten episodes.

Of course all that is true. It's just showing that scene made no sense at all.

If all of it is true then the scene makes sense. Just because you're capable of seeing through people and stopping a commoner from intimidating you, it doesn't mean you can control a raging psychopath husband. It's odd that everyone loves a good, realistic story of human struggle and growth but they want these ridiculous tropes of how a character gets "empowered" and all of a sudden can conquer anything and nothing ever goes wrong for them again.

How in hell did this thread get unlocked o_0 ??

Not sure, but this seems like a marvelous time to reiterate my rating of 1

Not that it means anything but I deleted my vote of 4 and gave it a 7. Hard to go much higher than that with the Sand Snakes scene. But I'm feeling better about the episode than I did a week ago after reading everyone's explanations.

The fact that Sansa there at all still makes no sense. And no "vague notions of revenge" is not a good enough justification.



Also, The HS/FM stuff is also making less and less sense as we go along to.

It'd help if:

-The reason for her being there at all made sense.

-We hadn't have done this kind of thing with her character repeatedly already, over multiple seasons with multiple characters.

Gave it an 8. I actually didn't really pay any attention to the Dorne fight, so that probably helped a lot. Jorah-Tyrion, Kings Landing were done well. It was a nice twist to see Margaery get caught up in the Faith's trap-knowing Lancel confessed we'll probably get to see Cersei imrpisoned as well. The room of faces was really creepy and well designed-much better than my imagination of it at least.



I'm still not offering any opinion of the ending- I mean, the actors pretty much made it clear we're in for a few shocks- and seeing the preview images with Sansa in Winterfell many people connected the dots. Lets see where this leads Sansa to.....

I really can't believe people actually read this whole series, I am only watching the show and I am completely over it at this point. Game of Thrones? More like game of D-bags that make the show unwatchable. Every cool, interesting character is dead or screwed over somehow. Aya Stark is one of the best characters left and she's sitting around in some temple learning to be nobody or whatever. i like the other stark sister as well but apparently she just has to suffer forever for no good reason. The whole theon greyjoy thing is a joke. jon snow could have been cool if he wasn't such a whiny loser. jamie lannister was cool until he became whiny and useless. Circei is apparently never going to get what she derserves which I have been begging for since the show started. I originally started watching the show because Sean Bean and Robert Baratheon (can't remember his name) were in it and they've been dead since forever. At this point the show just bugs me more than anything. The cool people all die and the losers and jerk offs live forever. Tyrion is the coolest one left but he's doing nothing. Whatever, done with it. You suck R.R. Martin. Stop writing.

Well, not very good. Sand Snakes fight was one of the low points for me, and that they had the same fight choreographers who did Oberyn vs The Mountain, Ned vs Jaime and Jon vs Karl Tanner. In hindsight, they botched the whole Dorne plot, would have liked to see something of House Dayne aside from the Tower of Joy. As far as the end of the episode, I felt it was somewhat inevitable, considering how ... aggressive Ramsay is, but then the camera focuses on Sansa, then Theon's tear-stricken face... then Sansa screams. Makes me have uncomfortable thoughts about what Harrold is like.
