Lothar Posted May 17, 2016 Share Posted May 17, 2016 (edited) I gave this episode a 9 and I gave last week's a 3. I mention that because some people were complaining about low ratings given last week saying we wouldn't like anything. The only part of this episode I didn't enjoy was the High Sparrow speech. I loved most everything else. Unlike last week, everything moved along and had a purpose. Tyrion wasn't just staring at Grey Worm and Missandei and making a bad attempt at comedy. He was doing things. There was a conflict created. He had meaningful stuff to say and argue about. It'll be interesting to see how Dany reacts. Sansa/Jon reunion was wonderful to see. That's more than GRRM ever gave us. It's hard to not be in a good mood for the rest of the episode after seeing that. It was so nice to see Sansa being strong and convincing Jon. The dialogue was good, the acting was good, the chemistry was good. I love that she said she had been thinking about him and that she apologized for the way she acted before. It makes sense because we know they weren't the closest siblings. I feel like we have a lot of Jon and Sansa scenes in the future to look forward to. Dany's scene at the end was silly and ridiculous as are all her big moments, but it was fun. Game of Thrones is back to being fun again instead of just depressing all around. It's been a long time. This was less predictable than if Jorah and Daario rescued her or a dragon saved her again. I thought they were going to drag that story out and have her leaving be a episode 8 moment. Great that it wasn't the case. It's good to see Littlefinger again and I like how he got Royce on his side. I look forward to see what role he's going to play. Can't wait to see what Sansa says to him. Much better than any episode last year except for Hardhome. Edited May 17, 2016 by Lothar Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
