Sunday night’s Game of Thrones was a heavy episode for many reasons: it may not have been the most action-packed scenario, but it did break out the building blocks to set up the rest of the season. Tensions were high this go-around, with a lot of plotting getting played out.
And the photos show just how dire the situation is for some — cough cough Dany. Our favorite dragon-mom is currently a bit out of her depth in terms of ruling, doing a real bang-up job with a blind justice fist. With the freed slaves and the masters fighting for societal dominance — and the Sons of the Harpy doing all the dirty work — Dany has her work cut out for her (and by that we mean she needs to realize that the world cannot be run on the merits of justice alone. Sometimes mercy is a gift)!
Fingers crossed next week Barristan Selmy tells her a thing or two about a thing or two. Because GIRL you are not your father but you ARE a Targaryen and those MFers went a bit nutty with power from time to time. Better to know your inherent potential weaknesses rather than pretend they might never exist, ya smell me, Drogon?
Also included? THE RETURN OF JAQEN H’GHAR, everyone’s favorite man with no face — or many faces, depending on how you look at it — to show Arya the ways of the most skilled serial murderpeople in all the land. This will end well, we’re certain of it!
