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

No boundaries and overwhelming
8 June 2015 | by mortimmerSee all my reviews

This episode shakes things up and about.

Once again, I couldn't believe what was about to happen, and it happened. And then some more.

Personally I don't mind alterations from the books, if that benefits the series. Especially if it helps break expectations.

"Oh no, they won't. Something will happen and it will be OK."

"Nope. What did just happen?"

And in the middle of finding your comfort, they stack some more on top of you in awesome fashion. This episode was overwhelming.

It's 10/10.
