The first ever flashback on Game of Thrones was probably one of the most underwhelming scenes I’ve seen on the show. When we’re introduced to this mysterious fortune teller, there is all this build up and anticipation. We can feel how Cersei is nervous, but refuses to show her fear because she is a lioness of the rock! But instead of that Cersei, we are shown a little girl who threatens to kick the fortune teller off of her fathers land! Ohh so interesting! Here I am expecting to see “the woman’s eyes were yellow and all crusted about with something vile…she was short, squat and warty, with pebbly greenish jowls” but instead we are introduced to a pretty, albeit dirty, woman who is not scary or intimidating looking whatsoever. Once again a very poor casting choice by the show runners. After sucking some blood from Cersei’s finger…poof!! We have a fortune. But the most important, the most crucial, the most needed piece of the fortune is omitted–the valonqar.
Which brings me to the scene in the sept where we see Tywin looking like he’s about to float down the River Styx. As Cersei and Jaime are discussing their rights and their kingdom and blah blah we see that Jaime and Cersei have picked up right where they left off in season 4 by wanting to rule the world togetherrrrr!!! Barf
Melisandre asking Jon if he’s a virgin? Does this mean that Jon is going to show her his leech???? Please no.
“It’s not you Pod, its me.” Looks like Brienne is dumping poor ole Pod since she’s not a knight. Awww.
What in seven hells is this scene with Loras and Olyvar?? This scene does nothing to further the plot aside from reinforce that the show runners want to make Loras the poster boy for the LGBT community. I can sense the set up of something bad coming.
STANNIS ASKING FOR WILDLINGS?? Stannis doesnt want the wildlings!!! Jon wants to save them!!! Not Stannis! Stannis just bought an army of sellswords, right???
Aww heartfelt moment from Daario. Poor kid getting sold into slavery and then becoming Maximus!!
Dany clearly forgot how to dracarys this season.
