Quotes

Jorah Mormont: Careful, Khaleesi. Xaro owns this city and the warlocks have a thousand eyes watching for you... I found one. A ship with a good captain. She leaves for Astapor tomorrow.
Daenerys Targaryen: Astapor?
Jorah Mormont: We cannot stay here.
Daenerys Targaryen: They have my dragons. A mother does not flee without her children.
Jorah Mormont: They're not your children. I know they call you the Mother of Dragons and I know you love them, but you didn't grow them in your womb, they didn't suckle at your breasts. They are dragons, Khaleesi, and if we stay in Qarth we'll ...

An Episode Creating Anticipation and Resolution
1 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We need to line up the chess pieces at some point. Theon is convinced that the two brothers are dead, burned to a crisp, even though they have escaped. Catelyn has betrayed her son. All her talk of the necessity is just that. I know that somehow we are to see the wisdom of what she does, but I don't see it. The Lassiters are as cruel as can be and it is really hard to imagine any compassion on their parts. Of course, with Tyrion in a command position, there is internal hemorrhaging going on. It's interesting that despite his limitations and physical size, no one dares take a shot at him. Now we have Jon Snow, captured by the Wildings along with his comrade, being driven across the icy wastes. Arya and her friends have managed to get away with the help of her benefactor. King Joffrey has bought into the idea that he is a warrior. Tyrion laughs at the thought. Jaime is in a canoe being paddled down the river. Bring on the last two episodes.
