Game Of Thrones season 5 episode 7 review: The Gift

17 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A personal vendetta backfires spectacularly against its orchestrator in this week's slow-building Game Of Thrones...

This review contains spoilers.

5.7 The Gift

They say that success in life is all about who you know and who you are more than anything else. Very few people in Westeros are self-made men. Bronn was nothing but a common sellsword until he took a chance and befriended Tyrion Lannister. Now he's a knight with a castle, doing special favours for the Queen Mother in exchange for a bigger castle and a prettier wife. Littlefinger might have been a nobody as far as lords are concerned, but he was still a lord before he made his money as the Master of Coin and King's Landing's brothel master. Essos is a bit more fluid, lacking the traditional nobility of the Seven Kingdoms. A man can make something of himself—or make nothing of himself—more so »

Recap & Review: "Game of Thrones" Season 5, Episode 7... Winter Has Never been Closer

24 May 2015 9:12 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Snow has never been a good thing on "Game of Thrones". This week's episode, sees snow falling, and falling hard, on many of the characters. "Winter is coming" may be the words of House Stark but everyone is starting to realize this is the stark truth. Even as we move south and across the Narrow Sea where it is still a bit too warm to snow, the specter of impending doom shrouds every interaction we see. "The Gift" is an episode that handles its darkness right. For me it doesn't reach the highs of "Kill the Boy" but is a marked improvement over last week's "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken". Let's dive in. We have to start by dealing with the repercussions of the closing moments of last week's episode. Several days have passed and Ramsay (Iwan Rheon) has been assaulting Sansa (Sophie Turner) every night. Bruises are visible all over her »

Game of Thrones Season Five – Episode 6 Review

20 May 2015 7:19 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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

Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken.

Directed by Jeremy Podeswa.

Written by Bryan Cogman.

Sansa

Game of Thrones season five is now over half way through…yet, Barristan Selmy aside, there have been no major deaths or overly shocking twists. Events have been much more subdued, the writers instead focusing on Littlefinger (Aiden Gillen) and Cersei’s (Lena Headey) political maneuvering. But wait…what’s that coming over the hill? It’s a wedding! Which, as seasoned fans know, is Martin-speak for ‘all your favourite characters are about to die’.

But something else happens instead.

Sansa (Sophie Turner) marries Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) in a ghostly nighttime wedding in Winterfell’s Godswood, and everyone survives. The ceremony goes off without a single flaying. The honeymoon, though…that’s where Season Five’s preference for unsettling psychological moments over shocking twists comes in. »

Game Of Thrones: George R. R. Martin, Sophie Turner Respond to Controversial Scene

19 May 2015 11:42 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warning: Book spoilers ahead! (That paragraph will be marked with bold text at the start). Also, do not read if you are not caught up through Game of Thrones' latest episode, "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken." At the conclusion of "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken," Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) was brutally raped by her now-husband, Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) while Theon/Reek (Alfie Allen) was forced to watch. Game of Thrones has never shied away from controversy or difficult moments, but for many fans, that scene went beyond the pale. It was similar to a choice showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff made last season in the episode "Breaker of Chains," where Jamie (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) had some kind of nonconsensual sex with his sister Cersei (Lena Heady). That scene fundamentally changed the conception of Jamie as a character, something that angered book fans and confused fans of the TV show. Things didn't need to happen this way, »

Recap & Review: Darkness Unfolds in "Game of Thrones" Season 5, Episode 6... You Readyc

17 May 2015 9:15 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The best thing I can say about the sixth hour of the fifth season of "Game of Thrones" is that it acts as a companion piece to last week's fantastic episode "Kill the Boy". Like last week, "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken" moves the pieces around, setting the stage for future conflicts. Also like last week, it focuses on a smaller collection of characters and stories to be able to give each one multiple scenes. Finally, it too was written by series veteran Bryan Cogman. As far as I'm concerned, that's where the similarities end and what we get this week is pure and utter darkness. Before we get inundated with the muck, there were some elements in this episode I did enjoy. The return of The Queen of Thorns herself, Lady Olenna Tyrell (Diana Rigg) is going to be a highlight even in the best of episodes. The big guns have »

Game Of Thrones season 5 episode 5 review: Kill The Boy

11 May 2015 4:21 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Even this far into its lifespan, Game Of Thrones is still brave, bold, gutsy television that has taken the fantasy genre to new audiences...

This review contains spoilers.

5.5 Kill The Boy

There comes a moment in every episode of Game Of Thrones where I inevitably groan angrily at the television. That's when the episode goes to black and ends for the week. However, this week's episode of Game Of Thrones had a little fun with that black-out convention and used it to create a little narrative tension while still making me yell at the television over a potential cliff-hanger yet again.

Last week's cliff-hangers are resolved pretty quickly. Left bloody in an alley, Grey Worm and Barristan Selmy's fates are quickly sorted out this week by Bryan Cogman's script. Grey Worm lies in a sick bed, being tended to by Missandei, and Ser Barristan The Bold lies on a funeral bier, »

Lena Headey Talks 'Thrones'

10 May 2015 8:21 AM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister (Macall B. Polay/HBO)

Lena Headey's Cersei Lannister is breaking free in "Game of Thrones."

With her youngest son, Tommen, the King, and her father, Tywin Lannister, (one of the last of the old generation) dead, Cersei has empowered herself and is (not so) quietly ruling Westeros.

"It was weird going back and not being with any of the actors we've spent four years with really, but it's almost like letting this sort of horse off a leash -- someone that's been captured and tethered and then she's like free, and ...
