I love Cersei Posted June 3, 2013 Share Posted June 3, 2013 Rated this 8/10 - Still in the books everything is a gazillion times better. No exaggeration. You just can't do them justice on TV, with budget and time constraints anyway.Now pluses and minuses:+ This episode was moving.+ Tension could be felt during the episode.+ This episode didn't include a single scene that was really poor.+ Most scenes didn't seem overly rushed this time. (Could have done without Dany this episode, to give her story more time/impact in the future, but still.)+ Rains of Castamere song was well recognizable.+ The silent credits were really powerful.+ Loved Michelle Fairley's performance and portrayal of Catelyn.+ Loved Tobias Menzies' performance (Edmure).+ Loved David Bradley' performance and portrayal of Walder Frey.+ Loved how Arya talked to Sandor. Good acting by Maisie Williams.- Why again Sandor did knock out Arya? Would have loved to see Sandor's fight scene and how he stops Arya from running into the castle. At least the scene could have ended when Arya hit the ground, to leave us a little cliff hanger.- No fight/resistance during the RW, just a tiny slaughter. No army/burning tents. No sense of the real measure (!) of the event. Oh well, budget I guess. The atmosphere still felt right, though.- The wildlings great battle-like run to the hut with the single old man seemed a little dumb.- Anticipated a great landscape shot of Queenscrown, including the walk there through the lake. I felt a little let down by what we got, but that may be personal - very minor nitpick.- Almost forgot about Sam and Gilly's easy stroll through the park. I liked their interaction, but still: what the hell happend since they fled the ravens? Pity we didn't got to see them where we left them the last time.- The queasy feeling that too much was left out doesn't go away. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
