Fire & Blood
Well this is the end of the first season of Game of Thrones and I finished it just in time for the new season to start to tomorrow. So far this show has shown some very well done episode, possibly the best so far is Baelor, and this episode is no exception. Initially when I first heard of this show I was interested in it because of Sean Bean and then I read the books but still the fact that the killed off the shows main character was a bold move, even though I knew it was going to happen, it was the only way for the show to progress. The title of this episode, Fire & Blood, is in reference to the house Targaryen and the end shot was what made the episode worth it, Dany sitting in a pile of ash, from the fire which she laid the Khal to rest, with three new born dragons, which is a good thing because I was wondering from the start if they would include the dragons this season. What worked is the setting up of the next season, which is what most of the episode consisted of and it was done nicely and should entice people into continuing the series into the next season. It was also a good sight to see that Jon Snow knew is right place in the Night’s Watch after he returns to the Wall after trying to flee, it shows that he is finally realizing that the brothers of the Night Watch are now his family and that he left the Starks behind so that he can live rightfully on the Wall. There was a lot going on in this episode but it was also one of the strongest and I can’t wait for the new season tomorrow.
