Buildup before they Blast!
14 August 2017 | by (India) – See all my reviews

East Watch was all about building up of many many plots, all of which were superbly done with amazing story telling.

Many reunions took place, well I won't mention which ones to avoid spoilers but all of them were so superb that I can't wait to see how they all turn up.

Little Finger is doing what he is best at, but this time I just wish that Starks change their legacy.

Danaerys showing both sides of her again in this episode, soft and hard, which shows that she can be a different ruler than what westeros has seen in the past. The scenes between Danaerys and Jon are somehow getting soft and romantic.

A glimpse of Old cunning Cersie was back which was good to watch as her scenes weren't as strong in the previous episodes as they used to be.

You might not like this episode if you always want an action packed episode like the Spoils of War, but let me assure you guys the plots built up in this episode are exactly like the silence before the storm and something special, very special is coming in next week's episode. Can't wait for that.
