I didn't realize, after watching GOT episode 5...**** Spoiler **** A besotted Lysa, with a request from Petyr Baelish added drops to Jon Arryn's wine, meanwhile also following his instructions per a secret letter addressed to Catelyn. (Pilot episode) Thinking about it, this whole mess started with Jon Arryn's death. I just don't recall that tidbit from the books. (Do I need to be corrected?) Great episode tonight, probably the best well rounded episode of the series, intrigue, humor, suspense. I agree with Chris, best death of the series was Locke. I can't believe that after this weeks episode, we are half-way though season 4.
I too am disappointed. Two of my all time Fox Science Fictions were not picked after only one year. Almost Human and Serenity.
Sansa will need development in that area. They are heading for the Eyrie, she will need "smarts" in dealing with Lysa,
No, Chris said, Jorah didn't speak up, meaning, I took it to indicate that he (Jorah) agrees with her "Justice."
Game Of Thrones: Oath-Keeper. Hmmmm, well, I love it, I hated it...after watching this weeks production, I think I wish now, that I haven't read the books. The reveal at the end regarding the White Walkers was intriguing, to say the least. Would that be consider a reverse spoiler? Maybe GRRM green-lit the reveal because maybe he realizes he won't finish his book series. Certain scenes during last nights episode really swayed wayyy far away of the book, here is hoping they at least stay within canon. Loved Jamie and Tyrion's interlude, Margaery's face upon realizing the truth in Joffery's death, enjoyed Tommen's late night surprise. Locke at the wall, remember he was commissioned by Roose Bolton to locate Bran and Rickon. Not my favorite episode, but still, very, very worthy.
At a cost of six to eight million an episode...10 episodes seems to meet the budget.
I agree about Jamie. I know his character had fits of loneliness and frustration about Cersei. And apparently with all the raw emotions, they just got the best of Jamie. Spoiler warning****** I do recall from the books that Pod leaves Kings landing and meets up, I believe with the Hound and Arya while on the road. I am willing to be corrected....
Chris, loved your review, and look forward to this seasons reviews succeeding each presentation. Because of the differences between the books and the HBO presentation, I do have a simple question; Have you read the books? No reason for asking, just thought I would ask.PS: When you mentioned, "Khaleesi" we knew who you meant. Warm regards.
In my opinion, I thought the actor who played Daario (introduced last year) was just a little too......well, for lack of a better word...."pretty," for an acclaimed warrior. The Actor (the Nashville guy) has a more rugged look and more consistent of that character from the books, without the colored hair and beard. Again, IMO.
For me, the episode started a little slow, but I'm always aware that the first episode is the seed planting. They saved the best scene for last..Arya and the Hound. Brilliant! They are always fantastic.Can't wait for the big wedding! (wink wink to those of you who've read the books)
