The Three Leeches
11 May 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Daenerys asks Barristan to schedule a meeting with the leaders of the 2000- professional mercenaries Second Sons. The vulgar Captain Mero, Captain Prendahl na Ghezn and Lieutenant Daario Naharis discuss with Daenery and she gives two days to the leaders to think about her proposal. Mero returns to his camp and decides to kill Daenerys. During the night, Daario comes to Daenerys tent and gives the heads of the two captains to her and swears to serve her. Sam, Gilly and her baby head to Castle Black and they are surprised by a White Walker. Sam stabs the creature with the dragonglass dagger that he found and he kills the White Walker. The Hound is bringing Arya to The Twins to deliver her to Robb. Melisandre brings Gendry to Dragonstone and seduces him. Then she places three leeches on his body to suck Gendry's blood. Then Stannis throw them into the fire as part of the witchcraft and says the name of people he wants dead: the usurpers Robb Stark, Balon Greyjoy and Joffrey Baratheon. Tyrion gets married with Sansa and gets drunk in the feast. Then he tells to Sansa in their room that he will sleep in a separate bed, and will only consume the marriage if she wants.

"Second Sons" is another great episode of Game of Thrones. Daenerys is an amazing character, conquering her royalty with her attitudes. The dragonglass dagger that Sam has found is incredibly powerful and he might be the first human that has killed a White Walker. Will the black magic with the three leeches be well suceeded? Tyrion is another great character of this amazing series. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Second Sons"
