Game of Thrones Season 7, Episode 1 “Dragonstone” Review

Spoilers Ahead on Game Of Thrones Season 7 Premiere 

“Shall we begin?” Game of Thrones Season 7 Premiere entitled “Dragonstone” is immensely satisfying. After an extra long hiatus, it’s just a treat to get back into the Game of Thrones universe. The producers have promised a faster pace. One down and only 6 more to go this season. Even though there wasn’t a tonne of action in this premiere, the measured pace felt perfect for what it was trying to achieve. Okay, maybe for some viewers the pot montage is a bit much, I found it amusing.

Spoilers Ahead on Game Of Thrones S06E06

“Blood of my Blood” is a fitting episode title. Of course, it’s a direct reference to Dany’s speech to her Khalasar. It also relates to Sam’s kin and his new makeshift family of little Sam and Gilly even though they aren’t blood relatives. Family is a thread which also connects to Bran’s storyline where Uncle Benjen makes his return.

The connective tissue throughout “The Door” is about explaining origins. It’s a common thread between many scenes: The children of the forest created the Night King. Jaqen H’ghar explains that the faceless men were once Volantis slaves. The red priestess sheds light about the night Varys became an eunuch. Hodor’s origin and why he repeats the same word is finally revealed. Some of these exposition points serve to deepen the mythology and address long-standing mysteries, while some may also prove to be significant in setting up future events.

Game Of Thrones Season 5 Episode 9: “The Dance of Dragons” Review

Game Of Thrones Season 5 Episode 9

Game Of Thrones Season 5 Episode 9: “The Dance Of Dragons” Review (Spoilers)

Going by previous seasons, Game Of Thrones has conditioned viewers to expect the unexpected in its penultimate episode. High expectations can be bit of a double-edged sword. It adds to the intensity knowing a regular character could get killed off and in anticipating a season defining moment. On the other hand, setting the bar high could result in a let down if that game changing event doesn’t land as hoped. The good news is that on its own merits, “The Dance Of Dragons” is a solid episode. It just happens to be in the shadows of “Hardhome”, one of Game Of Thrones’ best episodes to date. A better way to think about these two episodes is that they’re not in competition with one another, rather it’s a great one – two punch to the final stretch of Season 5.
