Hello again readers, Kevin here bringing a rather brief discussion on last night’s episode of Game of Thrones. I’m keeping this entry short because of how late I’m posting this blog entry. I really enjoyed this episode overall, especially how it built to a climax at the end that made our collective heads spin.
I enjoyed seeing Brienne and Sansa interacting with Little Finger, even if I still think Sansa should have put her pride aside and accepted help from Petyr’s army from The Veil. I loved how Dany forgave Jorah and told him to seek a cure for his greyscale after Jorah said he was going into a self imposed exile. I enjoyed how Tyrion was accepting help from the Red Priests, and the discussion between the red priestess and Lord Varys about faith and skepticism. I loved the battle between the Children of The Forest and the White Walkers. And despite how tragic it was, I loved seeing why Hodor lost his ability to speak because of Bran. That whole idea of connecting Hodor’s past to the moments of Hodor’s death while having Hodor “hold the door” to hold back the undead was absolutely brilliant.
I have no real complaints about this episode. Even with Hodor’s death I’m quite sad, but I’m also happy that this character death had real meaning behind it (unlike Osha’s death scene last week).
I’m looking forward to seeing what will happen next week, and how this turn of events will affect Bran in the coming episodes.
