A new dawn brings about a new episode of Game of Thrones Season Five. Read on to find out what had me screaming at my screen this episode.
The House of Black and White
As per the title of the episode I may as well begin with The House of Black and White
There’s a lot of disappointment circulating around the introduction to the House but people need to understand that the House of B&W is built upon tests and proving yourself. Obviously Arya can’t just turn up to a Black and White door and be let in, I know it’s GoT but that’s still a bit too smooth.
But Jaqan H’ghar! I am very happy to see his face (excuse the pun). I like how the show is using familiar faces to introduce viewers to new concepts. And I do believe The House of Black and White will be explained in greater detail maybe in the next episode?
Oh a Palace more beautiful was never seen before!
Prince Doran is fantastically cast and I like how his character, his morals are already showing through, non-book readers can already see what kind of person he is.
I do believe Arianne Martell will be replaced by Ellaria Sand which simplifies things a little I guess.
Already predicted that Jaime was going to Dorne because of a leaked script (I can see your judgey face), But I never could’ve guessed Bronn would be the accomplice!
Jaime trying to convince Bronn was so smooth as expected
Lord Commander Elections
Yay for doing things democratically! I just realized the Night’s Watch is the closest thing to a Democracy in Westeros, hm need to fix that I guess.
Anyways, I believe the anticipation was very well done. I was literally screaming at Sam to open his mouth and oh what a great speech he gave
“He’s the commander we turned to when the night was darkest”
Let’s just take a moment..
Can someone turn that into a fancy Tumblr thing ?
Dany in turmoil
It was going smooth, they discovered a Son of the Harpy and then everything went downhill.
Dany, you don’t execute a slave in front of a bunch of slaves especially when they’re screaming at you to not do it.
But hey, I’ve read the books and I know what’s coming so I shouldn’t expect everything to go peacefully in Meereen.
I was so happy to see Drogon but for a second I thought he was going to blast Dany’s face..can’t trust those things
I have some scattered thoughts that can’t really be categorized. Call this the rapid fire round if you will
Sansa decides not to take Brienne’s offered protection, I guess it’s her new independence showing and it then also directs us towards said uncomfortable scene in the next few episodes.
Tyrion whinging to Varys on the way to Volantis is very much like him whinging to Ilyrio in the books, I’m glad they’re following the book that way.
Last but not least how cute are Gilly and Stannis’ daughter? I just hope the stupid mother stays out of it.
Quote of the Episode:
“That smirking whore from Highgarden”
– Cersei expressing her love for Margaery Tyrell
Those were my thoughts on this week’s episode! I’ll see you next week with another one!
