I’ll be honest, I don’t have a lot to say about this week’s episode. My regular readers know that I find Arya terribly boring, and the same applies to Samwell. Since they took up a lot of space on this episode, I’ll keep this brief.
It’s obvious that Sam is going to cure Jorah, and Jorah will probably save Daenerys out of nowhere at some point. I’ll admit I’m over Jorah and his lack of a storyline. He served a purpose for the first few seasons but his character feels extraneous to me. Especially since there are so many other delicious characters to spend time with (see Lady Olenna, Lady Mormont, et al.).
How long have we waited for Daenerys to be in the same room with Ellaria, Yara, AND Olenna, with a side of Tyrion and Varys? You can see how D2 is bringing all of the various factions into one place for the wars to come. The irony is that no one besides boring Jon Snow is focused on the real threat. I’m still trying to figure out who the leaker is.
I guess I have to talk about the ambush scene at the end. The special effects were awesome, to be sure. However, Euron and his crazy eyes are just too much. FW believes he’ll get killed by the end of this season, and I hope he’s right. I like Yara’s character but I’m not sure what will happen to her. I expect that Ellaria is the “gift” Euron promised to Cersei.
Oh, Theon. I have no words.
