As with most seasons, the second episode is the one that really sets everything up on Game of Thrones.
I hope everyone’s having a great summer cause winter is here! Was that cheesy? Cause I love cheese and I loved this episode. We haven’t seen the Sand Snakes yet, but so far I’m naively optimistic about season 7.
This reviewer spent the better half of this morning amused at Jon Snow’s new nickname -KitN- since I thought someone was making a kitten pun using Kit Harington’s name. This reviewer is not a morning person.
Friends that have been together through thick and thin part for good(?), enemies turn allies, and a great leader comes back from Burning Man just in time. Here’s what you missed on Game of Thrones:
Old characters are coming back at almost the same rate as new characters are killed off and at this point I’m just enjoying this carousel of murder.
Much like college students that need to hand in an assignment, the writers this episode discovered a whole host of things they should have paid more attention to earlier, because the number of hours they have to get everything to where it needs to be is limited. Which is why we have plotlines emerging from the depths of a very confused bowl of plot soup and impromptu trips/exiles to the other end of Westeros.
I understand that it’s a challenge to coordinate the many storylines of the show in a way that doesn’t take away from the pacing, but after six seasons you’d have thought they’d have the hang of it. As it stands, the fifth episode advanced certain storylines to far beyond the 5th episode mark -narratively speaking- while others seem to only now be starting, and others still keep treading water.
This season continues the trend of being surprisingly good and giving me what I actually want to see. This was mostly the case in this episode, since my overall joy overshadows some of the awfulness.
Season 6 continues to be surprisingly adequate. This reviewer is perplexed.
