So now we have an ice dragon. I have to say it – this was totally predictable and thus quite the deviation for D2. Query – does it breathe fire or ice?
I don’t have much to say about this episode. Quite frankly, I was bored. I actually wanted it to end at 10 pm. The Arya/Sansa dynamic can’t even be classified as a dynamic, it’s that boring. It’s clear that Petyr is trying to play them off of each other but aren’t they too smart for that? Perhaps they are, and this viewer is missing something. Was Arya posing as Brienne so she can go to King’s Landing in disguise and kill Cersei? As you can tell, I’m not only bored but also confused.
The battle scenes beyond the wall were disappointing. I couldn’t even tell who was fighting, or who was killed. The dragon stuff was cool, as usual, but the special effects didn’t make up for the poor dialogue and storytelling here.
I’m hoping this was a one off and the show will be back to form this week.
