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.
