Very Good, the final 3 episodes should be one wild ride.
A very good episode which features some great dialogue exchanges and really grabs and holds your interest for the duration of the episode. Along with the previous episode, major decisions and events were set into motion and we will see the results in the final three episodes. Game of thrones never really has simple transitional or filler episodes, and this definitely is not either. Two of my favorite characters are heavily featured in this episode. The first sees an opportunity to try and right some of the wrongs of his past and makes complete sense looking back on everything this season and I'm sure many even saw this coming. The other, probably the most devious mastermind of them all (in my opinion), is constantly manipulating everything and everyone around him for his own personal current and future advancement. Nothing is ever as it seems with this character, and the only thing you can predict with him is that he will make himself better off. By the end of this episode you will may become a little angry due to the fact that you have to wait a week until the next episode. I for one cannot wait to watch these next three episodes play out, it should be one wild ride!
