WARNING: There are spoilers in this article.  Even though we’ve added the obligatory spoiler warning, I’ll find it hard to believe that there are many people who miss this show on the day it airs. In fact, if you are starting to read this and you HAVEN’T seen this episode then you need to stop and come back in sixty minutes. Right, you’ve made it back. Wiped your eyes? Staring into the distance in disbelief? Trying hard not to crush inanimate objects due to Throne Rage? Yep, we’re all there with you in amazement of the series finale of season five (and a little in despair… OK, a lot in despair…). Read more...

So anyone reeling from the conclusion of last week’s episode and was worried as to how the writers of Game of Thrones might top it this week have nothing to fear. The Dance of Dragons was the culmination of a slow burning season that has amped up the tension with relish before reaching a screaming crescendo that surely left all those in the production of the show grinning from ear-to-ear.

Or rather, The ‘Gifts,’ as this episode of Game of Thrones was absolutely full of treats this week. The pacing so far of this season has been excellent – the feeling of foreboding is rapidly reaching breaking point as too much seems to being going almost too well for some characters and terribly, terribly wrong for others in ways we never expected. Winter is almost here and the North is becoming hatefully cold, threatening to scupper the advancing plans of Stannis Baratheon’s army as they march closer towards Winterfell. His allies are retreating but his pride is forcing him to continue for the sake of losing face. Melisandre presents him with another opportunity – sacrifice Shireen in order to secure his victory. This was an awesome scene for Stannis. For years we’ve believed him to be manipulated by the Red Lady only to see that this one step too far for the Lord of Light. It adds so much humanity to Stannis and makes you rally towards him – guess that means he’ll be dead soon then… Read more...

The pace is quickening much more rapidly than we’re used to in Game of Thrones but, as Season Five gets underway, it’s become clearer to the audience that the stakes are much higher than we are used to. Kings Landing could potentially fall into disarray at any moment following the loss of Tywin and the manipulations of Cersei. The North seems bleaker than ever now Roose Bolton is their Warden, holding Winterfell in his tyrannical grip while even further North of the Wall, the White Walkers continue their march South. Even the unstoppable Daenerys Targaryen looks to be losing her footing in Mereen as the Sons of the Harpy move in the shadows to cause chaos and fear among the streets. Read more...

“The good lords are dead and the rest are all monsters.” – Brienne of Tarth WARNING: There are spoilers in this article.   It’s that time of year when literally everything stops. No, it’s not a religious festival or a bank holiday – it’s the premiere of a new season of Game of Thrones. From the off, as the credits began and we began to look out for a host of new regions dotted about the clockwork map of Westeros, it was easy to feel that the status quo has truly shifted when the sigil atop Winterfell has switched from House Stark to House Bolton. Following a prophetic flashback to Cersei as a child being delivered some chilling revelations by a witch when she was a child, Kings Landing stands silent, mourning the death of Tywin Lannister. Regardless of how you felt about Tywin, one thing could be said of the man; he had things under control. Despite the machinations of a crazed boy-king, there was never any doubt that Tywin could rein Joffrey in and he was certainly the man to mould Tommen into a competent monarch. However, with the patriarch of the Lannister household murdered by his son, Kings Landing and, most importantly, the House of Lions stands vulnerable. Read more...

“You know nothing, Jon Snow” – Ygritte   got   The last episode directed by Neil Marshall was Blackwater in season 2 and that was certainly an explosive state of affairs, one that demanded we stand up and pay attention as the walls of Kings Landing were assaulted by the armies of Stannis Baratheon. Marshall proved he was the man to handle the intense battles – their build-up, their brutality and their dramatic conclusions – and was on hand to deliver another lesson in combat but much further north this time.

“I’m guilty of a far more monstrous crime. I am guilty of being a dwarf... I’ve been on trial for that my entire life.”– Tyrion Lannister   Game_of_thrones-logo   There are few shows on television that continue to break new ground after four seasons. For most, it’s a struggle to keep hitting average beats at best. There are a few exceptions, of course, with Game of Thrones standing proud at the front of the crowd. The lackluster moments have been few and far between over the course of the past four years – and that is commendable in itself for a show with four years under its belt to have so few low points – and when the torch is lit, Game of Thrones really shines bright – even more so with Peter Dinklage at the helm.

“Serve me my wine. Hurry up, this pie is dry.” tlatr1The episode opens with a startling chase; one that echoes the pace of this second episode of the beloved series. Ramsay Snow is chasing down a fair maiden with Theon Greyjoy in tow – or Reek as he has now become to be known. This is not the Theon we’re accustomed to. Beaten, tortured and robbed of his manhood by his sadistic captor, the heir to the crags of Pike is a shadow of his former, decadent self. A shaking, dishevelled mess, Alfie Allen proves his acting chops - in an episode that is set to thrill from the start - as he looks to falter when he learns of the murder of his best friend and surrogate brother, Robb Stark. This is merely the beginning as The Lion And The Rose ups the ante and ensures that the actors are put through their paces as their characters are tested to their very limits. Read more...
