GAME OF THRONES: The Rains of Castamere Review (Article) - 6/4/2013 11:46:19 AM

Lol @ MrJaw - you're right, I wanna comment on who I think is correct on how the season will close out but I'm confused on who is referring to what lol

GAME OF THRONES: SECOND SONS Review (Article) - 5/22/2013 4:12:53 PM

Wow, great lists Calamity!! I'm with ddiaz tho in wanting to see Arya gut Tyrion from neck to navel.

 

Violator, if you really wanna know what's going on w the crows, read on...

 

SPOILERS: The crows are agents of a character we have sort-of met, the three-eyed crow Bran is searching for. Also known as the Last Greenseer, he also has the ability to "see" out from weirwood trees with the faces of the old gods (hence the heart tree just outside the cabin Sam & Gilly take shelter in). We do not actually meet the three-eyed crow's physical form until early book five so it may be another season or two before we see him on the show.

@ karas - The White Walkers (aka as the Others) are mythical creatures of which little is known about in regards to weaknesses but it is believed (and now confirmed thanks to Sam) that they can be killed using dragonglass. They have the ability to reanimate the dead (human or animal) and bring them into their service as wights. Whereas white walkers are fast & skilled at swords, wights are slow & clumsy and can not be killed by dragonglass. It takes fire to put down a wight for good. I assume we won't see Craster or Mormont as wights since I'm guessing Rast & the other survivors from Craster's Keep would've been smart enough to burn the bodies but I suppose it's possible.

@ hanso - As for it being the same white walker from the S2 finale, I'm not sure. If I recall correctly, the S2 Other was on (wight) horseback & carried a weapon. This Other was on foot and unarmed.

 

My favorite scenes: Arya & the Hound, Tyrion/Sansa wedding, Tyrion & Shae exchanging looks the morning after the wedding & Sam Slaying the Other.

The Tyrion/Sansa affair was supposed to feel awkward since neither is particularly thrilled at marrying the other. The weddings that follow, Edmure/Roslin & Joffrey/Margaery (it feels like they've been engaged forever) I expect will be livelier & more colorful especially since one is a Royal Wedding.

I didn't like the Melisandre seducing Gendry scene. Felt forced to meet their weekly sex quota.

 

Best lines:

"Nobody cares what your father said" - Cersei being book Cersei more than ever

"Please don't name him Randyll" - Sam

Speaking of Sam, I can't believe he just left the dragonglass laying there. Pick it up! Hasn't the thought crossed your mind that you might need it again?!

 

GAME OF THRONES: THE BEAR & THE MAIDEN FAIR Review (Article) - 5/14/2013 5:12:32 AM

@dazzler - Arya is believed to be dead, Bran & Rickon are believed dead or prisoner at the Iron Islands.

@MrJaw - Ditto :)

@hanso - Yes, you are on the right track with your grasp on #1. And yes he is the horn-blower from the siege at Winterfell in season 2. Funny he began tormenting Theon way back then.

Several aspects of the tent scene in #2 are gonna be a major topic of discussion for book readers. I'm of a mind that Talisa isn't gonna betray him although there is a ton of evidence to the contrary (found a great video compilation of this evidence if I could figure out how to post a link- new still learning). Call me a romantic - a foolish one.

I thought the Tywin/Joffrey scene was good, definitely not as great as Tywin/Olenna but Jack Gleeson held his own against his grandfather.

I enjoy Jon/Ygritte interactions. Ygritte's "right foot, left foot, right foot, left foot, right foot" cracks me up.

<SPOILER QUESTION>Book readers, was that windmill supposed to be Queenscrown? How disappointing if it was </SPOILER>

 

@flyinroo - Agreed. Sure a little more action would be nice but not every episode can be action & adventure. I agree every episode this season has earned at least an A- or better. Also, the story is in the details of all that "talking" that bothers some viewers - a single line here or there that is discounted/forgotten easily can turn out to be important down the line & that in my opinion is the brilliance of a story like this - you have to pay attention & think. Now this episode was written by George RR Martin himself but it's not perfect. This episode's weak point I'd say was the lack of Samwell Tarly. I mean what was the point of showing him last week if his next scene isn't in this episode? I just allows more time for viewers to forget what you were supposed to learn from his scene last week. Now they'll have to remind us all over again in the "Previously on" segment next week. I would have preferred Sam in this episode and eliminated one or both of the Margaery/Sansa & Tyrion/Shae scenes altogether. In any case, I'd give this episode an A-. Sam would have given it an A or    <SPOILER> a proper Queenscrown</SPOILER>
