Trivia

Daenerys declares adamantly she will not be "Queen of the ashes". This is a reference to the books: one of the visions she saw in the House of the Undying was of her father, telling Rossart that Robert could be "King of the ashes" once he'd blown up King's Landing with Wildfire. See more »

Goofs

Daenerys speaks High Valyrian fluently, as commented in Game of Thrones: And Now His Watch Is Ended and Game of Thrones: Second Sons. She should have been aware that the High Valyrian word "prince" is gender-neutral, without being told by Missandei. See more »

Quotes

[In the crypts of Winterfell]
Jon Snow: You don't belong down here.
Petyr 'Littlefinger' Baelish: Forgive me. We haven't ever talked properly. I wanted to remedy that.
Jon Snow: I have nothing to say to you.
[Jon turns to leave]
Petyr 'Littlefinger' Baelish: Not even "thank you"? If it weren't for me you'd have been slaughtered on that battlefield. You have many enemies, my king, but I swear to you, I'm not one of them. I love Sansa... as I loved her mother.
[Jon grabs Littlefinger by the throat and slams him against the wall]
Jon Snow: Touch my sister and I'll kill you myself.

Superb Direction & Character Progression Nicely written Episode
25 July 2017 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I could have written this review in valyrian but it would have been hard to find Missandie translating it for you. :)

It's My First Review Ever & Few Fools who just want to write bad' forced me to write this; I would suggest to ignore the Bullshit Reviews written by so called Fan Boys or Book dumbs, who not only compare things with their dumb-ass visualization but also OVER ANTICIPATE things as they are the directors.

The Episode was simply a marvel with great direction and scripting, The Show has to move quicker now as considering the fact that it has cut down from 10 to 7 Episodes and Another 6 Episodes in next season, Its Obvious to move things and align the characters for their role. The Creators had to join the missing pieces to set up character progression, keeping an 'On the Edge' phenomenon which the show has maintained so far. It is one of the Greatest Shows Ever on the Television history comparing it to the greatest movies and shows of all time. The Directors and Creators must be in a great pressure to keep things up to the mark and few dipshits ruin things by such idiotic and over anticipated reviews which is as bad and seems like they ran out of toilet paper.

Talking about the Episode 2 StormBorn the Starting with thunderstorm and heavy rain was precisely superb justifying the title. Regarding the Character Progression, I was amazed to see Sir Jorah is finally on the move, and Sam is playing his role well. Decision taken by Arya for Re-uniting was also a good one and well shown at the right time when things get moving precisely as they got to be.

Its Obvious for the Clans Unite in order to set alliances for the Great battle, so "Raven-Postal Services have to be quicker. The story is going in right direction and it gives a more edgy feeling episode by episode that viewers are gonna run out of chairs. I really feel great that the Writers and Directors are keeping the Scale High, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are Indeed the best Creators and they have proved it making the GOT a Phenomenon' in the history of Television.

Episode Rating: 9.9 Character Progression: Tombstone Piledriver" Anticipation Level: Double On the Edge: 11.67 MM away Falling off chair Missandei: HOT Yara Greyjoy: Holy-Sh*t
