Review of Game of Thrones S6E05

  Revue of Game of Thrones S6E05     And just like that, we are already halfway through the season. How sad.   After last week’s incidents, I had somewhat expected Episode 5 to be quiet.

Review of Game of Thrones, S6E3

  Revue of Game of Thrones, Season 6 Episode 3     Well, Episode 3 seems to leave some questions unanswered. Again, people die… It’s GOT. People will always die.

And after over 9 months of waiting, we get our first taste of GOT Season 6. Finally, we can put the “Winter is Coming” memes to bed and move on with life.
 
GOT Season 6 is special in that it has gone beyond the books, so there is absolutely no way to tell what would come next (except you are President Obama, I hear). For this reason it was widely, and highly, anticipated. Which is probably why some might feel that Episode 1 was a letdown. But really, what did we expect, other than the resurrection of Jon Snow, that is?
 
Episode 1 basically brings us up to date with our characters. Daenerys meets her captor and discovers what is to be her fate; Arya begins her sightless life, and yet continues her training; Sansa (and Theon) reunite with Brienne; Cercei learns of her daughter’s death; The High Sparrow still holds Margaery captive; Tyrion and Varys ponder on governance; Davos and his men contemplate their next actions; Melisandre reveals… well, reveals; and – It is GOT – people die. People always die.
 
So in all, Episode 1 doesn’t reveal much, other than the power shift in Dorne and Melisandre’s revelation. We are still coasting along, and can only look forward to the coming episodes. On the bright side, we still have characters like Bran and the dragons to look out for, so it’s not all doom and gloom.
 
That said, let’s wait for Episode 2 – without bated breath.
