Storyline

Theon Greyjoy is sent by Ramsey to Moat Cailin to convince an ironborn garrison to surrender, promising that they will return to their land. The Wildlings slaughter Mole's Town but Ygritte spares Gilly and her baby. When Sam hears the news in Castle Black, he becomes worried with Gilly, but his friends comfort. A boy gives a scroll to Barristan with the pardon of Jorah signed by Robert Baratheon and Daenerys expels him from the city. Littlefinger is explaining the death of his wife Lysa to a court and Sansa is asked to testify as a witness, and she lies to protect him. Oberyn fights against the Mountain and wants him to confess that he raped and killed his sister Elia Martell. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Elegance
2 June 2014 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

This episode belongs to a kind of group that I call the "elegant bridges", meaning that the subtle lines connecting the plot and the characters themselves, are allowed to be shown in a rare and precious light of the day; a privilege shown in a manner that even for both tough spoiled spectators or enlighten readers, it continues to endure in its full richness and complexity. It's still elegant, either you see it for the first time knowing nothing or as a repetition.

Like taking your armor off showing the soft parts and their inner defensive reasons, you have an intimate approach of the narrative and the characters, a human-contact literature quality experience.

Simply put, I felt watching this episode, as if I was absorbed in a visual reading session: myself, the bed or the toilet, the book, and the private voyeuristic relation around the story and the characters. The attachment, the connection, the confided secret. Excellence in cinematic narrative with each piece of the stories completed in its cycle with its own essential elements. Two adjectives: very rich, very elegant.
