The Cunning Imp
22 April 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Craster orders the Nighy's Watch to leave his home and Lord Commander Mormont reprehends Jon Snow since Craster is important for his men. Catelyn visits Renly expecting an alliance with him. Tyrion tests the loyalty of the small council and tells a different plan of marriage alliance for Princess Myrcella to Pycelle, Varys and Littlefinger and Bronn arrests Pycelle for betrayal. Theon has to decide whether he is loyal to his family or to Robb Stark. The Lannister men arrive at Yoren's camping and kill him; Polliver takes the Needle from Arya and stabs Lommy in the throat with the Needle. When the captors ask to the prisoners who Gendry is, Arya points out to Lommy that had stolen Gendry's helm.

"What Is Dead May Never Die" is an episode that shows that the imp Tyrion is a cunning Hand of the King. The homosexual Renly is pressed by his wife to have a baby. Theon seems to have betrayed Robb and the Stark House. However there are excessive unnecessary graphic sex scenes. My vote is eight.
