Game of Thrones Season Five – Episode 4 Review

4 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oliver Davis reviews the fourth episode of Game of Thrones Season Five….

Sons of the Harpy

Directed by Mark Mylod.

Written by Dave Hill.

Cersei

Tommen’s (Dean-Charles Chapman) nice and all, diplomatically avoiding violence, innocently naive of the larger political games at play, but sometimes you find yourself pondering: what would Joffrey do (Wwjd)?

He wouldn’t let this High Sparrow stuff take flight, that’s for sure. Granted, he might have shot a few whores along the way, but sometimes the realm needs a firm hand like that.

Through Tommen’s weak rule, Cersei (Lena Headey) continues to command the crown. “The Small Council grows even smaller,” remarks Maester Pycelle (Julian Glover) as the Queen Regent sends Mace Tyrell (Roger Ashton-Griffiths) off to Braavos. “Not small enough,” replies Cersei. The correct size, it seems, is one minus Pycelle.

Exploiting the tiny council with a maesterful act of political nuance, »

'Game of Thrones' Episode 5.04 Recap and Preview of Next Week

3 May 2015 10:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Tonight's new Game of Thrones episode, "The Sons of the Harpy", begins shortly after last week's "High Sparrow" left off, with Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen) knocking out a fisherman to steal his boat, as he carries his new captive Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) aboard. We first saw Mormont for the first time all season in last week's episode, where he was drowning his sorrows at a pub, where he sees both Tyrion and Varys (Conleth Hill). What's interesting is, at the end of last week's episode, Mormont told Tyrion he was taking her to the Queen, which could either mean his former Khaleesi, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), or the new Queen of Westeros, Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer). We don't get any answers in this first scene, though Jorah and Tyrion's journey has certainly begun.

We then catch up with Jamie Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), who is on a journey of his »

'Game of Thrones': Brutal Uprising Is "Only the Beginning"

3 May 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

[Warning: Spoilers ahead for Sunday's episode of Game of Thrones,  “Sons of the Harpy."] The uprising has just begun. Cersei (Lena Headey) empowered the High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce) to militarize his group of religious zealots, turning them into Faith Militant. First on their agenda: arresting Ser Loras (Finn Jones) for being gay. For Cersei, it's all a power play meant to put Loras' sister Margaery (Natalie Dormer) off of her game.

Recap & Review: "Game of Thrones" Season 5, Episode 4 - "The Sons of the Harpy"

3 May 2015 7:03 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Let's start this week's "Game of Thrones" review and recap at the end. The fourth episode of this fifth season is called "The Sons of the Harpy" for a reason and that last action scene delivers, and what makes it stand out in an episode full of them are the stakes. The Sons of the Harpy are stepping up their activities and starting to win the support of the Meereenese people. Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) is losing her grip on her reign and the increased Sons of the Harpy outbursts are a physical manifestation of this shift. The action also stands out because of its coherence. The editing on many of the other action scenes in this episode are cut together in the seizure inducing, hyper-cut style of most modern action movies. The irony of this one being the clearest action scene is that all but two of the combatants wear masks. »

‘Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau on Why He Hates Spoilers, Backlash Over That Infamous Cersei Sex Scene (Video)

3 May 2015 12:07 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“Games of Thrones” star Niolaj Coster-Waldau revisited the backlash he got over the controversial Season 4 sex scene in which his character Jaime Lannister forced himself on twin sister Cersei played by Lena Headey. “Whatever you take from a show is absolutely fine. But I think some of the discussion afterward became silly,” Coster-Waldau said during a new episode of TheWrap’s “Drinking With the Stars.” The two have engaged in a torrid love affair on the hit HBO show for years, leading to a dark scene following the death of their son Joffrey in which the two have sex while Cersei is standing. »

'Game of Thrones: Sand Snakes Are on "Crusade" Against the Lannisters

‘Game of Thrones 5×03: High Sparrow’ Review

27 April 2015 3:43 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

“It’s only a name.  Quite an easy burden to bear.”

Let’s start with a temple.  Its priests have no names, its god has no prayers, and the house jam is Mandel and Altman’s “Suicide Is Painless” on endless repeat.  The High Sparrow is a paranoid, spine-tingling, and grotesquely enjoyable episode of television in which identities are bought, sold, and tossed in the river while matters of the flesh and the spirit are debated, er, forcefully.

“To serve well,” says the assassin formerly known as Jaqen H’ghar, “a girl must become no one.”  When Arya asks him which of the House of Black and White’s many statues is the many-faced god, he replies that she already knows the truth of the matter: there is only one god, and that god is Death.  The people who come to the dreary House of Black and White find solace »

Game Of Thrones season 5 episode 3 review: High Sparrow

27 April 2015 2:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Game Of Thrones' true mastery is in its precise balance of multiple engaging plots and locations, as High Sparrow shows...

This review contains spoilers.

5.3 High Sparrow

Sometimes it's difficult to sit down and start writing about Game Of Thrones without immediately launching into praise. So much of what the show has done over its five seasons has only reinforced its brilliance, from spectacular battle scenes to essentially turning Peter Dinklage from a highly regarded actor into a star player. Of all that, what the show's creative crew has done best is to take George R.R. Martin's literary world and translate it seamlessly to television.

The universe of Game Of Thrones feels like an authentic place; every location feels distinct without artificially inflated differences. There's no village of pagodas or huts or science-fiction Jetson houses; it's all wood and stone, fitting the medieval theme without appearing to try too hard. »

‘Game of Thrones’ Postmortem: Lena Headey Talks Cersei and the High Sparrow

26 April 2015 10:04 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen “Game of Thrones” episode 503, titled “High Sparrow.”

The many disparate factions of Westeros continued to collide in unexpected ways in the third episode of “Game of Thrones” season five, with Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) being unexpectedly snatched up by the banished Ser Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen) in a Volantis brothel, and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) returning home to Winterfell to grudgingly marry the sadistic Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) — in what we hope is part of a long con to incite a Northen uprising and murder the entire Bolton clan as payback for their betrayal of the Starks at the Red Wedding. Even further north, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) declined Stannis Baratheon’s (‎Stephen Dillane) tempting offer to make him Jon Stark and help him reclaim Winterfell from the Boltons, and cemented his position as Lord Commander of the Night’s »

Recap & Review: "Game of Thrones" Season 5, Episode 3 - "The High Sparrow"

26 April 2015 7:16 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The third episode of this fifth season of "Game of Thrones" has one standout sequence, which is to say I could watch Margaery (Natalie Dormer) and Cersei (Lena Headey) trade barbs and "pleasantries" for an entire episode. In fact, I've watched the sequence multiple times - starting from Cersei being transported to the sept for the wedding as the crowd calls for Margaery, all the way through Cersei offering to help Margaery with anything she needs. ? Cersei is fast becoming my favorite part of this season. A concerted effort has been made to bring the queen mother to the forefront. Between opening the season with the show's first ever flashback to watching her attempt to consolidate power in the wake of her father's death, Cersei is the most active character so far this season. ? Cersei's prophecy hangs over her actions like a heavy shroud. As her status quo continues to »
