sj4iy Posted May 18, 2015 Share Posted May 18, 2015 Well, I gave it an 8 and I wasnt a fan of the Dornish scenes. That being said, the episode was so filled with great little moments, that it outweights the bad, so I can justify my 8 : Pros : - Game of Faces - both scenes were great. - Arya giving the Gift of Death was beautifuly done as well. - Tyrion / Jorah discussing Jeor. - Tyrion skepticism about Dany and Jorah's blind faith contrast. - Tyrion's tongue to get them (and himself) out of trouble and that "cock merchant" line (AAA was brillant !) - Olenna's first punchline of the season as she comes back. - Littlefinger / Lancel meeting. Nice set-up. - Littlefinger playing Cersei like a harp. - Olenna and Cersei dialogue. - Finn Jones getting to act finally and the inquisition scene ! (Though I wonder if Margaery will only fall for lying to the Gods or if it will go further). - Alfie Allen. - The beautiful scenery of the wedding, and the music ! Ramin Djawadi delivers ! - The focus on Reek's face during the wedding consomation. - "That explains the Golden hand !" - The Dornishman's Wife ! - Areo Hotah was impressive ! - "She got pregnant. That was boring." Hehehe, I see what you did there ! - A subtle one but : Autumn in Dorne. I know people expect a full-sunny landscape there, but it's Autumn, remember ! Cons : - Jaime / Bronn vs Sand Snakes. - Only a glimpse of Doran. - No Sand Snakes getting a little bit more fleshed-out, though that may (and will) come. - Would have liked a little bit more exposition during the Hall of Faces scene. - I know the blizzard is coming next week, but not enough snow at Winterfell. So, yeah, all in all, I stick to my 8/10. I pretty much agree with this. One or two subpar scenes don't cause me to rate the whole episode 'bad'. I rate it based on how it felt overall. I think this episode was a solid 8. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
