I really, really enjoyed episode 2 again! It seems like the action is moving a little faster now, which is good, considering it’s a short season this year.
We cover almost everyone, missing this episode are the Wall, including Bran, Tormund and also the Brotherhood without Banners & the Hound. Sucks, because the Wall is my favourite setting together with Winterfell. And I always love watching the Hound – he will have a big role to play I hope.
So what’s happening this time? Cersei tries to win Lord Tarly, Sam’s dad over for her cause, Jaime is still very uncomfortable with the whole situation, Master Qyburn designed a horrible dragon-killing weapon and damages a freaking massive dragon skull!
Dany is now surrounded by more allies, including Lady Olenna, Ellaria Sand, the Greyjoys and even Melisandre! She seems very defeated and humble, but mentions Jon Snow to Dany and she decides to summon him to Dragonstone!
Jon himself decides to meet with Dany, because she sits on a pile of dragonglass and has DRAGONS that will be handy against the White Walkers. He leaves Sansa in control of Winterfell in his absence..
I am not cool with that for 2 reasons
- Is Jon going to just miss Arya????
My favourite scenes this episode were definitely Arya’s. First she meets Hot Pie. HOT PIE! SOO happy to see him 🙂 Also, he tells her what’s up at Winterfell and Arya decides to go there instead of King’s Landing! You go, girl 🙂
And then… we see someone who was lost since season 1, episode 3…
I won’t say anything, apart from: This scene broke my heart! It was beautiful, but sad and I fear for Nymeria’s life right now for some reason. If she’s coming back to protect Arya at some point.. please don’t die!
By the way, where’s Ghost? Is he going with Jon to Dragonstone? I hope so!
I loved the sea battle, the chaos and fire and the fighting and especially insane Euron. Woah, what an improvement. Last season I almost forgot he was there, now he’s the MVP.
I fear what Cersei will do to Ellaria…. It won’t be pretty.
Theon… Some great acting again there. He didn’t really have a choice though, Euron would have just taken him as well. Of course jumping from the ship looks cowardly, but at least someone survived the massacre. Maybe Gendry will pick him up now.
Sam’s winning the most disgusting scenes award again. Damn, poor Jorah 😦 I hope there’s something in it for him in the end. I would love it if he sees Dany again..
