Here be Spoilers.
We jump straight into the action and see that BRONN SURVIVED YAYYY! And he saved Jaime on the way. Those 2 are far away from Dany, Drogon and the battle in general and Bronn’s had enough. Sure, you are going up against dragons! I would have loved for him to switch sides there and go with Tyrion and later with Jon! I really don’t care that it should have been impossible for him to survive AND drag along Jaime in his armor. GIVE BRONN ALL THE PLOT ARMOR!
You could have called this episode ‘History repeats itself’. It contains less action scenes & violence than episode 4 but has a lot of strong, emotional or revealing scenes. It’s a lot quieter but still, so much happens and it’s probably one of the best episodes setting up for what’s to come. It will be glorious, I am sure!
Sooo…. Our first ‘history repeats itself’-moment is Dany burning Randyll Tarly and DICKON to death for refusing to bend the knee. She doesn’t listen to Tyrion proposing to send them to the Wall or taking them prisoners.. Those are some scary similarities to Joffrey in season 1 refusing to let Ned Stark go to the Wall and the Mad King burning people left and right. I fear for Dany. She has been pretty ruthless the whole season, showing shades of all previous monarchs she did not want to be. It’s up to her advisors to reign her in and Tyrion is aware.
They hatch this really stupid plan to bring a wight to Cersei in King’s Landing and convince her of the threat in the North. ….wait what??? So they are basically destroying their own army by sending good men behind the Wall to prove to Cersei something she wouldn’t even care about? Because that’s what I think. Even if they succeed, she won’t side with them. Bitch is too far on the crazy side.
And now… excuse me.. she’s pregnant??? Is she really? I hope she’s lying..
I am normally not someone who complains about the show being different to the books. I realize it’s a work of its own but what has been annoying me for a couple of season now is JAIME’S STORY! He had the BEST redemption arc in the books. The BEST!! And in the show he looks like a whiny little coward since he came back to King’s Landing!! And with Cersei’s pregnancy it doesn’t look as if it’s going to change. I still have my hopes up that something happens which will finally turn him against her. But I can’t see it at the moment.
AND DON’T YOU DARE HURT BRONN!!!!
I really hope Bronn is gone from King’s Landing by now. I was hoping he’d join Tyrion after he met with Jaime.
But let’s talk about how great Davos is this season and……………..
Christian Bale GEEEENDRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
IS NOT ROWING ANYMORE BUT MAKING ARMOR AND BIG FREAKING HAMMERS!!!!
I loved this parallel to his father Robert! It made me really emotional seeing Gendry so strong and determined and not hiding anymore. He is looking great and I hope he will meet Arya again. Him getting introduced to Jon Snow was everything!! How could I not see that coming?! History repeats itself again as another Baratheon heir stands next to a Stark, the King in the North. Just like Ned and Robert, Gendry and Jon get along immediately and don’t you dare break up this bromance!!
Jon meeting Drogon was an awesome & strong scene as well! Well done by everyone involved! Drogon recognizes a TRUE Targaryen!!
True? Yes, let’s just slip this in there, Gilly is the best! ‘Hey Sam! This guy kept track of all his bowel movements and windows and steps and stuff and hey, what’s annulment? And who is Raggar Targ-‘ WILL YOU SHUT UP?!
Sam, man…. I hope Gilly took the book! Or one of Bran’s ravens was around.
Just writing this review, I noticed how MUCH actually happened!
In Winterfell it’s all not going as I’d like… Seems like Littlefinger has the upper hand again, sneaky little f*ck. Standing in corners since season 1. If he turns Arya and Sansa against each other, I will riot! Also, Bran! Maybe have your eyes on what’s happening around you and leave the freaking Night King alone! You already made him mad af, nothing to do there!
The last scene was a thing of beauty and one of the biggest teases in the history of the show. HOW CAN YOU STOP THERE?!
Let me get this straight:
Jon Snow, Tormund Giantsbane, Jorah Mormont!(who also reunited with Dany before), Gendry Baratheon, Thoros of Myr, Beric Dondarrion and the FUCKING HOUND all go looking for wights behind the Wall! The shot of them walking.. SO EPIC!!!
I know that half of them will probably die and it’s a shitty idea anyways, but damn, I can’t say I am not looking forward to them going wild next episode.
I am scared though as well. Scared for all of my favourite characters! Scared for Bronn, for Tormund, the Hound and Arya!!
I watched the preview for next episode this time and they were RUNNING and looking freaked out! Pls don’t be giant ice spiders or White Walker giants!!!
Still hype for next episode, but more scared now!
I do hope the last 2 episodes are a little longer.
Oh, and by the way….
