Storyline

Theon's sister Yara arrives at Winterfell with reinforcements but he still can't seem to earn her respect. She tells him he was stupid to kill the Stark boys as they were valuable prisoners. Theon learns that his father wants him to return home. North of the Wall, Jon had been taken prisoner by wildlings. At Harrenhal, Arya identifies the last of the three lives Jaqen H'ghar promised her for saving him. Robb is dismayed at the deal his mother has made with Jaime Lannister and places her under arrest. Danerys refuses to leave Qarth without her dragons and decides to retrieve them from the House of the Undying. Stannis and his army approach King's Landing from the sea. Tyrion plans for the defense of the city but Cersei wants him to keep her son King Joffre out of the fighting. He realizes that he must take steps to protect Shae. Written by garykmcd

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.
