Eponine Posted April 8, 2013 Share Posted April 8, 2013 (edited) My main complaint with this episode is something that I think will be more and more unavoidable as the series stretches out, and I don't "blame" D&D for doing it this way because I don't see any clear alternative, but it felt very choppy and without any continuity. And because of that, there wasn't much narrative tension. For example, I think it would have made a much bigger impact, and been much more relevant to the story, to show Robb and Cat putting aside their problems to mourn for Bran and Rickon. In fact, that could have been a centralizing theme - how so many of the characters now have misinformation or total lack of information about each other, and have to go on alone. If Cat should be shown regretting anything now, it should be (as I believe it was in the book) that she left Bran and Rickon in Winterfell and wasn't able to be with them when they were in trouble.Nope, sorry, I do have a problem with Kikkeli's acting no matter what awards she might have won in the past. Her sudden attack of jealousy was completely unconvincing. And some of that is the writing - that she's been portrayed as this mature and experienced world traveler and suddenly she's throwing the kind of tantrum a middle school girl might upon hearing that her 12 year old boyfriend said another girl was pretty. But she didn't sell it at all.On the plus side, the Queen of Thorns is spectacular - especially the line that her son is doing the same thing as his absentminded father, only on the back of a lion.
