Game of Thrones Season Five – Episode 8 Review

1 June 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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

Hardhome.

Directed by Miguel Sapochnik.

Written by David Benioff & D.B. Weiss.

“This is my Randy Orton pose.”

Um…wow. Things…things really escalated quickly there. I mean, stuff got out of hand first. A lot of people died. And then those dead people got up to make more people dead. What do you mean we can’t talk about that first? The other plot lines?! They were good, but c’mon – White Walkers. Ok, ok…

Tyrion and Daenerys

Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) have finally met and the Imp is pitching himself as Khaleesi’s new advisor. Lord knows she needs one. Jorah’s (Iain Glen) been re-exiled to the non-friend-zone, Ser Selmy is dead and Daario Naharis (Michiel Huisman)…can we not go onto the White Walker stuff yet? Fine.

Daenerys seems harsher in Tyrion’s company. »

"Game of Thrones", Where We Stand & What's to Come from the Season 5 Finale

1 June 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Is everyone still done with "Game of Thrones"c Are you done watchingc I can't really tell because I guess I don't really care as the last two episodes following that most controversial moment that had the Internet up in arms are two of the best episodes of this show I've seen in some time. Now I don't remember each and every episode the way many of you do. I don't remember the names of each episodes and I'll admit there are even characters I recognize more for what they represent rather than who they even are. However, in last week's appropriately titled episode "The Gift" and in last night's episode "Hardhome" we've seen developments involving key characters with awesome narrative weight to them. Cersei (Lena Headey) is chilling in a cell, sipping water from puddles. Sansa (Sophie Turner) is still under the thumb of Ramsay (Iwan Rheon) and yet »

‘Game of Thrones 5×08: Hardhome’ Review

1 June 2015 2:28 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

“I’ve seen the army of the dead.”

Me too, Sam. Holy hell.

‘Hardhome,’ written by showrunners Benioff and Weiss and directed by Miguel Sapochnik, could easily coast on the strength of its stupendous final quarter, but instead it delivers a melancholic and anxiety-producing hour of television that doesn’t so much scale into insanity as it does buckle and collapse under its weight. Every petty war to rock Westeros since the series’ inception has taken place in the shadow of the White Walkers’ forbidding, voiceless presence. Tonight that curdling of the cream of political infighting and heroic battles came far too close for comfort when four Walkers appeared on a ridge overlooking the episode’s eponymous Wildling refugee camp like the horsemen of the apocalypse.

The conflict between Jon and Tormund on the one hand and the Wildlings, led by an intractable Thenn, on the other dissolves in the »

Hannah Waddingham on Torturing Cersei and What Septas Wear (and Don’t Wear)

31 May 2015 10:21 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Spoilers ahead for the most recent episode of Game of Thrones.  When Hannah Waddingham was cast in the role of Septa Unella — she of the stingy water rations — people started extending their congratulations by saying, "Oh my God, I'm so glad for Cersei to finally get her comeuppance, and you're doing it!" Trapped in a cell, charged with fornication, incest, treason, and murder, Cersei's short on friends at the moment. Her son, the king, is too forlorn to stop by, her brother/lover's off in Dorne, and she's alienated most of the Small Council, save for Qyburn. Her main visitor is a "faceless nun" who comes by to extract a confession, and dole out small amounts of food, water, and mistreatment. Waddingham chatted with Vulture about the chance to degrade Lena Headey, begging the makeup department for makeup, and what kind of undergarments Septas wear.I don't know if you »

New 'Game of Thrones' Spoilers on Final 3 Episodes: Be Excited, Be Afraid

29 May 2015 8:53 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Every "Game of Thrones" fan has an opinion on Season 5 so far, even if they think it's boring. (How?!) GoT has a history of building to big endings, and the end is nigh for Season 5. This Sunday, May 31 marks Episode 8 of 10, and HBO shared details on what's ahead, giving major hints to book readers but also raising some new questions. Some stuff will be entirely new -- like everything Tyrion Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen say to each other -- and other things may be "remixes" in the realm of what "The Walking Dead" always does with its source material.

Here's a breakdown of what's ahead in the final three episodes.

Episode 8, "Hardhome" (May 31)

Update: Here's our full recap of Episode 8. Best of Season 5 so far!

Official HBO synopsis: "Arya makes progress in her training. Sansa confronts an old friend. Cersei struggles. Jon travels."

Game of Thrones Season Five – Episode 7 Review

27 May 2015 8:28 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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

The Gift.

Directed by Miguel Sapochnik.

Written by David Benioff & D.B. Weiss.

Cersei

Short term vs long term, that’s always been Cersei’s (Lena Headey) issue. She’s too focused on the immediate satisfaction of revenge. That’s what you get with her spoilt, richkid upbringing. Even the recently passed, blind Maester Aemon (Flash Fact: only the show’s second death of natural causes) could see problems coming Cersei’s way.

After seven episodes of using their fundamentalism to her advantage, Cersei is realising the Sparrow-shaped monster she’s created (the Mountain-shaped monster, presumably, will come later on). Yet she somehow manages to maintain her fearsomeness. Despite her slender frame and pretty dress, it’s still intimidating when she shouts, “look at my face. It’s the last thing you’ll see before you die” at that Sparrow member. »

Game Of Thrones season 5 episode 7 review: The Gift

25 May 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | 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 »
