Building on the events of the last episode: Daenerys’ flight from Meereen on-board Drogon, Stannis’ child-sacrifice and Cersei’s incarceration this finale really sings.
In what is actually a fairly uninspiring and tepid episode Thrones continues to stumble towards its season finale.
Weiss and Benioff clearly learnt nothing from that episode in season four and they’ve gone and done it again.
Five down five to go. Monday’s episode might be a tad slow for some but the episode strikes it just right by pairing down the storylines allowing them to pick up momentum.
As with episode one there’s an awful lot of exposition due to the vast number of storylines.
