Storyline

Robb and his entourage are traveling to the Freys but wet weather has delayed them. Talisa has big news for him. Jon Snow, Ygritte and the others have crossed into the south and are headed to Castle Black. Margaery has good advice for Sansa who dreads the thought of having to marry Tyrion. For his part, Tyrion thinks she's too young. Shae is also unhappy with Tyrion's upcoming marriage and she wants them to run away. Tywin Lannister makes sure King Joffrey knows exactly who is on charge. Daenerys and her army arrive at Yunkai, the Yellow City. Ser Jorah recommends that they simply bypass the walled city as conquering it serves no useful purpose. She disagrees but the slavers of Yunkai refuse to free all of their slaves.

Goofs

When Jon Snow and Ygritte are heading south after crossing the wall with the Wildlings, they stop for a rest, and Ygritte takes the opportunity to remove something from her shoe. When she does this, she turns the shoe over to shake it out and you can clearly see the sole of the shoe is a standard, modern hiking boot sole. See more »

Razdal mo Eraz: The wise Masters of Yunkai have sent a gift for the silver queen.
[Razdal's slaves bring forward chests and open them, revealing many gold bars]
Razdal mo Eraz: There is far more than this awaiting you on the deck of your ship.
Daenerys Targaryen: My ship?
Razdal mo Eraz: Yes, Khaleesi. As I said, we are a generous people. You shall have as many ships as you require.
Daenerys Targaryen: And what do you ask in return?
Razdal mo Eraz: All we ask is that you make use of these ships. Sail them back to Westeros where you belong, and leave us to conduct our affairs in peace.

Noble Attitude
6 May 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Jon Snow, Ygritte and the survivors of the wildling party head to Castle Black. Daenery is decided to take the city of Yunkai and she meets one of the wise masters of Yunkai to offer his and the other masters' lives if they surrender to her. Arya flees from the camp of the Brotherhood but she is caught by The Hound. Theon is released by two gorgeous women that seduce him; out of the blue, his torturer returns and tells that he will castrate him. Jaime leaves Harrenhal escorted by the Bolton guards but when he learns the fate of Brienne, he forces the men to return to rescue the lady from Locke and an angry bear.

In "The Bear and the Maiden Fair", Jaime has a surprising attitude saving Brienne from her captors. I never believed that he could take such noble attitude. Daenery is impressive and is conquering one city after another. Theon continues to get what he deserves. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "The Bear and the Maiden Fair"
