Storyline

Things are not going well for Stannis and his army. Winter is upon them and they are attacked in the night losing most of their stores. Unable to move forward or back, he dispatches Ser Davos Seaworth to seek help from Castle Black. Jon Snow and the survivors of the attack at Hardhome make it safely back to the wall but the reception they get is anything but warm. In Dorne, Doran Martell takes the diplomatic route telling Jaime that Myrcella can return to King's Landing with him provided certain conditions were met. In Braavos, Arya sees Lord Tyrell who arrives to speak to representatives of the Iron Bank. He's accompanied by Meryn Trant, one of the men on her list. In Meereen, the Great Games begin but the needless killing is not to Daenarys or Tyrion's liking. Ser Jorah defeats his opponents in the arena but a trap is sprung and the Sons of the Harpy attack. Rescue is at hand however. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

In the books, Davos never gives Shireen any gift. Much of their dialogue is original to the show, and in the books they hardly ever interact. See more »

Tyrion Lannister: It's easy to confuse what is with what ought to be, especially when what is has worked out in your favor.
Hizdahr zo Loraq: I'm not talking about myself. I'm talking about the necessary conditions for greatness.
[Daenerys gestures to the fighting arena, where a man has just been beheaded]
Daenerys Targaryen: *That* is greatness?
Hizdahr zo Loraq: That is a vital part of the great city of Meereen, which existed long before you or I and will remain standing long after we have returned to the dirt.

I'm reading reviews that are all over the place. Apparently, some feel there are set of rules that can't be crossed. These folks should have stopped watching long ago. The series has pushed the envelope time after time after time. There's incest, sexual excess, nudity, graphic violence, on and on. The Game of Thrones is about power and the effects of power. When the little girl gets burned, many think the series has gone to far. It doesn't matter that numerous children have died in other episodes. What about the farm children that are the focus of Theon? This is a fiction and it's often about the worst of humanity. It's about every level of ambition possible. It is about people that see life as nothing, unless it's their own, and even then it's not valued. There are great scenes here. The final battle is quite amazing. Let's look at this series for what it is and stop imposing our own belief system on it. If you have very conservative views on this, it shouldn't be your cup of tea. I know that "it is what it is" is a cliché these days, but nothing is more apt. Also, quit comparing everything in the books to the film. Everyone knows that every adaptation that has been done is different from the final result. Hail "King of Thrones" for being honest and incredibly entertaining. I can't wait for the finale of Season 5.
