Season Five Episode 04: Sons of the Harpy

• May 6th, 2015

Ser Barristan demonstrates that his vaunted reputation as one of the greatest warriors in the Seven Kingdoms is well-deserved. Unfortunately after kicking ass and saving Grey Worm from the Sons of the Harpy, he is slain, somewhat undercutting his legend. This death on the show is all the more shocking since Ser Barristan has yet to be killed off in the books. More than anything else this season, it really feels like we're entering uncharted territory, and it's exciting. This episode also lays the groundwork for R+L=J in a more explicit way than the books ever have, or ever will, most likely. It really looks like the show is ready to go there, which is pretty exciting.

Season Five Episode 01: The Wars to Come

• April 14th, 2015

We open on an important flashback for Cersei that I think will set the tone of her story arc for the rest of the season.  After that we pick up the action right where season four left off.  Of our surviving characters only Arya, Bran (and co.) and Reek are missing from this episode.  We see whats up at Kings Landing, the Wall, Meeren, and visit with Brienne and Pod, Varys and Tyrion.  I wonder where in the seven kingdoms Littlefinger and Alayne are off to.

Craig believes the grumpkins are our future.  Take their hand and let them lead the way.  Let them show the fireballs they have inside... What can I say.  Powerful episode.  The show has really caught up to the books in a lot of important story lines.  Where will they go from here?
