Bugger it, let's just make Tuesday's Off Topic post a 'Game of Thrones discussion topic' until the show gets terrible or we all get bored. How does that sound?
Last night's episode? I really enjoyed it. I think people tend to judge a Game of Thrones episode on how good or bad the cliffhanger is, but last night I felt as though several key storylines trundled along nicely, and moved in directions that intrigue me. There were a handful of scenes that seemed to eliminate dialogue completely and they worked brilliantly. In particular I loved Arya's struggle to let go of 'Needle', her sword. Her struggle to let go of her anger, grief and quest for vengeance. It was powerful to see her let go of everything except that. Great little scene, and well acted by Maisie Williams I thought.
Every scene with Cersei Lannister is gold and last night was no exception. The chemistry with the new Queen is exceptional. Love watching those actors play off one another, the tension is perfect. Love watching the Queen get cocky with her subtle jabs and it's interesting to watch Cersei rolling with the punches. That's what this show is all about for me: solid writing and stellar performances.
And bloody hell, is Jon Snow actually becoming interesting for once?
What did you think about the episode?
