The Lannisters and Targaryens deal with the aftermath of Daenerys’ surprise attack, we get a number of wacky plans so crazy they just might work, and I discover how hard it is to watch Game of Thrones while you’re on vacation and your internet connection sucks. Find out if I made it through the episode without throwing the television out a window, right after the break. Spoilers ahead.
Wow. Just… wow. Over these last seven point four three seasons, Game of Thrones has left me in many states: Sad, exultant, angry, completely bereft of hope that the concept of “good” was anything but an illusion manufactured by our ape brains to cope with the sheer cruelty and meaningless of life…

A whole lot to talk about as Fire and Ice finally meet, the Lannisters let loose in several different ways, and we continue to collect missing Starks in a densely packed episode that revealed a ton of things, even as it muddied several paths our heroes need to follow. Let’s talk about them all after the break (and yes… lots and lots of spoilers).

We’ve reached the midway point of season five of “Game of Thrones,” and fittingly some very important characters make some very important decisions that have kingdoms hanging in the balance. We also get some some dark Bolton family history, a reminder of what makes the North great, and find out exactly what boy needs to die in an excellently focused, extremely tense and foreboding episode five. Find out more after the break.

We’re going to be hard pressed to top last season. Can’t remember last season? Let’s take a quick walk through all that occurred, right after the break.
So much to talk about with our return to Westeros. We have betrayals old (and newly discovered) and new, the return of our favorite crazy redhead, promises kept, perfect lies, and the fate of two second-borne sons. More after the break.
