a few thoughts about Game of Thrones S05 E05 (“Kill the Boy”) and open thread
I’m not gonna have time to blog in-depth about the new series of Game of Thrones, but I’m posting a few thoughts after each new episode. Please feel free to talk among yourselves about whatever is happening. (And of course I’ll jump into the comments as much as I’m able.)
Until I say otherwise, take it as a given that I love this show for its complex story and its fascinating characters. That’s the baseline that I’m working from.
Things that popped to mind this episode:
1) Is Brienne looking at Jabba’s palace off in the distance?
Ah, I guess not:
But that would have been interesting, no?
2) Jon Snow making peace with the Wildlings begs the question, How did they not get included in the Realms of Men worth protecting in the first place?
3) Is it too much to hope that Ramsay Bolton is going to die a horrible, lingering, nasty death? For Sansa’s sake, if not also for the sheer pleasure of it…
4) Some heartstopping moments for Tyrion in this episode. Do we think he caught a touch of the grayscale, too?
At least he enjoyed some sightseeing beforehand…
