What is Dead May Never Die
This is the first episode of the season without the presence of both Daenerys Targaryen and Stannis Baratheon but we did get introduced to Margaery Tyrell and Brienne of Tarth both of whom are relatively close to Renly Baratheon, the youngest brother of the late king. To me the only weak link this episode was Jon Snow’s story, if it wasn’t for the ending of the second episode he could have been left out of the episode all together. Right now the show is starting to pick up a little bit but it feels a lot slower than last season but I really hope that the show gains some speed in the next few episode. Every scene that Tyrion Lannister has been in is just great and it is good to see that he is eliminating everyone that betrayed the last hands of the king, just so the same fate doesn’t occur to him. The good thing was that they showed just how Theon Greyjoy is treated when he is back home, like he ran away but actually his father pretty much give him away. The best thing is that it showed just how conflicted he is when it comes to his family and surrogate family, the Starks. The scenes with Renly are good but it was the Tyrell’s that where great, though we know nothing about them right now, but it seems that they know how to play the game of throne and know how to succeed in the tough times. So far I am really enjoying this season but it is off to a slow start but so was the book so it is not the shows fault.
