This week marks the return of a whole bunch of characters we haven’t seen in a long time, which is cool. Also, there’s anti-climactic developments in two major storylines that we’ve been hoping for ages would finally amount to something. Which is less cool, in my opinion.
Well, that was a bit disappointing. Since the previous two episodes were so incredibly action-packed I was expecting a slower one this week, but I was still hoping for more than what we got here. It’s not that it’s bad, just… uneventful. It moves some of the pieces on the board, but none of them collide with each other. In fact, in the one instance where we were expecting a long-awaited collision, the rug got pulled out from under us and now it seems we’ll have to wait even longer to get that sweet, bloody satisfaction we’ve all been craving. I’m talking about King’s Landing, obviously, so let’s start with that one.
