Ree, I of course got the rom com references, they were anything but subtle. That was one of the strikes against the finale. If you have ever read any of my other reviews, you would know I love this show and generally sing its praises. Early on in the show, there were a lot of rom-com references, but now the show has its own identity, so falling back on those was a cop out in my opinion. Speaking of cops, I know Mindy didn't love Charlie, but he was good for her. He empowered her to do things herself. He/they deserved a better breakup than the "been nice knowing you" we got. They also just threw in things like Morgan and Tamra have been hooking up, Peter is now dating the single mother, as if they were tying up loose ends, cleaning house. I do agree with your point Ree that it felt like this was written, not knowing if they would be back for a third season. That doesn't make it sit any better with me though. Danny begged for a second chance then went and got pizza after waiting an hour for Mindy? That about sums up this episode for me. But love the debate and all your comments. This is what makes it fun to write reviews.
I think Dany knows plenty about diplomacy and what she doesn't know Jorah does. He has never shied away from speaking his mind to her, so if he thought she was making a bad move I think he would have spoken up. She had to show her followers she is capable of handing out justice. Her army is one of freed slaves. Seeing those 163 crucified slave children I'm sure had them all wanting blood as well. Now is not the time for hand holding. She needs to get the throne, then she can put down the sword and be more diplomatic.
I agree. I liked the little moments and stolen glances they exchanged this week and how they resumed poking fun at each other. So long as that's the only poking they do for now. Slow and steady is fine with me.
I'm the president of the Peter Prentice fan club, so I can't ever get enough of him, but you had to love the scenes at the rabbi's dinner table and his negotiation with Danny before that.
I read G.O.T., but not the others. And TY for the warm regards. I'll just be referring to her as Dany like I did last season to make life easier on us all.
HAHAHA yes Liz, that was some tear you just went off on, but all good in my book. Everyone in my circles refers to her as such, so that's why it naturally comes out when I write. Also, on the show, those around her address her as "Khaleesi" not The Khaleesi or my Khaleesi. For me, it's not the same as someone being addressed as "your grace" or "my King" and then me referring to them as Grace or King, like Cleo McDowell in Coming to America. Maybe I'll start referring to her as Mhysa just to really get everyone fired up. Kidding of course. Going forward I will be using "Dany" to make everyone happy and my life easier. And TY for the clarification on the sword being Ice. Much appreciated. The DVD's I get from HBO don't have the "previously on G.O.T." clips before the episode, so I missed that.
I too love anytime Robin freaks out on Patrice. I forgot to mention that AND the final slap. I blame Time Warner for screwing up my recording. Thankfully a friend managed to record it and let me come over to watch, but as a result I was in a rush to get the review out.
Whoops you're right. Thanks for the heads up, I went back and fixed it.
I will have to go back and watch that scene again, but I thought the cosmos Rust saw looked to be right in front of his face, as if to show it was another one of his visions. They set that up earlier when Marty asked him if he still saw things.
Jim you're right. I misinterpreted a quote I had read from Carter Bays. I took it out, TY, but I'm still betting C&C have at least one last twist up their sleeve.
