LOVED Wun Wun smashing some rando against the wall. Robert Strong crushing that guy's head. Balon dying...bye Felicia. Sansa and Theon parting ways. Roose's subtle shade he threw at Ramsay more than once. JON! Bran and his vision
LIKED Tommen was very good in this episode, I felt quite bad for him. Jaime's scene with the sparrow. Varys' facial expressions and Tyrion asking him to punch him in the face. Walda's last scene was brutal and depressing. Viserion and Rhaegal being unchained*
DISLIKED Losing Roose so soon. His death made sense and what not but I'm bummed he went so soon. At least he got a watered down "peaceful land" comment. Still wish we would've gotten rue the day. Tyrion the dragon whisperer. I liked that story he told, that was almost word for word from the book if I remember correctly, but that was a bit meh for me over all. Dinklage was good though.
I gave a 9. The cinematography at the Iron Islands was extraordinary and I thought the transition to there from Theon worked really well. I really enjoyed Euron's introduction and when he said "I am the Drowned God" Braavos wasn't bad, but I think that scene could have been in the premiere. I was a bit surprised Roose and Walda were killed off this early, but it worked. At this point, I just want Ramsay dead. Iwan is a great actor though. Dat ending though. It was fucking intense, especially Mel speaking Valyrian. King's Landing and Meereen felt like more set up for what's happening later on, but I'm glad Tyrion unchained the dragons. They need to roam around a bit. Sansa and Theon's scene was really nice as well. We finally got to see Lyanna. ToJ next week! I'm fucking Hyped!
“As Daenerys Targaryen rose to her feet, her black hissed, pale smoke venting from its mouth and nostrils. The other two pulled away from her breasts and added their voices to the call, translucent wings unfolding and stirring the air, and for the first time in hundreds of years, the night came alive with the music of dragons.”
Straight off the bat, with Bran flashback and i want to cry because its little Ned, Benjen and fucking LYANNA. And Willis. Fucking Willis, what happened?!?! The scene with Meera and the COTF was really good. Man they really improved the look of the COTF which is A+
Castle Black scenes were amazing, the night's watch men surrendering to Wun Wun and the Wildlings. The look of disgust on Thorne's face. Melisandre was appropriately groggy. Davos was really quite optimistic, and they haven't really given us a reason why he is so pro-Jon and hasn't asked what happened to Stannis, Shireen and Selyse. Jon coming back to life was just an amazing moment. Good on barristanwhitebeard i think it was, who called Jon coming back like Bran in season 1.
Kings landing. Loved the Mountain smashing that guys head, and the relief of the Lannister guards as Cersei decides against violence (on this instance) but good to see there's something brewing in Cersei. Tommen... liked his scene with Cersei did not think his scene with Jaime was all that good. Jaime and the HS scene worked on some level, though i mostly just liked the HS speech. "Your mother would never do that" LOL jaime pls
Wow Winterfell, really sad to see Roose go so quickly. As soon as the maester came in with the news of a child i knew it was coming soon. Gosh Ramsay really is a Bastard. Feeding Walda to the dogs i was hoping Roose would have the more brutal death, as befits a Bolton. But not Walda. You will pay for this Ramsay. And fuck that Karstark.
Sansa-Pod-Brienne-Theon moments were all good. Sophie is really killing it this season, she was always better at expressing emotion through face rather than dialogue but its good to see she has improved somewhat. Theon, oh man just don't buddy. Go with Sansa, why you wanna go to the Iron Islands
The Iron Islands were so good. Euron omg I am the storm Kingsmoot is happening, and hey Aeron got a cameo
Arya scenes equal awesome, with awesome waif and awesome Jaquen.
Tyrion and the dragons. Omg nearly cried, the story was just soo Tyrion and its good to see him back to his old self or book self in a way. And Peter actually nailed the scene. Varys always nails the facial expressions as well. I know Tyrion's plot armour is pretty thick, but it made sense with the pre-discussion about dragons and how 'smart' they were that they would be behaved because they understood Tyrion was there to free them.
Belief is so often the death of reason. RIP And now his watch has ended
