Danny's reign is meet with rebellion by the Sons of the Harpy. She is also getting static from her boy toy about pit fighters and her dragons. When she meets the dragons, they are not pleased to see Mommy.
Tyrion was in that box for awhile. Like a long while. Varys explains he is part of the plan to get Danny on the Throne. Tyrion is sorta of ok with that if it means drinking himself to death.
We get Ceresi meeting a witch when she was young. Now, that she is old, she is dealing with dead fathers, traitorous imp brothers and old boyfriends who are now religious nuts. Jamie is very cautious about who to trust which is no one.
Jon meets with Stannis about Mance. If Mance bends the knee, he will live. Stannins wants the Wildlings to take Winterfell. Cool plan, but burning their leader alive might not inspire them. Jon tries to talk Mance into it, but Mance wishes Stannis luck and accepts his fate. He is burned alive for a good five minutes of the show til Jon puts an arrow into his heart.
The sidestuff is Brie telling Proderick, he can leave while she is depressed that Arya rejected for a thousand good reasons. Littlefinger and Sansa are "helping" to train the heir of the Eryie while really ruling the place. Gilly is leery that the Lord Commander doesn't like her or anyone. Sam tries to put a good face on it,but she lays out both of them are stuck at the Wall.
This is a pieces are in place episode. No big reveals and I guess the death of a major character in Mance, but we all saw that coming. Jon taking him out will lead to problems with Melisandra. Yet, how you expect to lead a group after you burn their leader alive while having some crazy bitch gone on about this One God is beyond me.
for us readers no surprises. (there's one for all of you coming from this episode). But it's still fun seeing how they filmed it and how it looks. I thought the death of Manse was great looking and the Dragons being pissed at Dany was great. Scared the wifey.
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.
