  • So Sunday night's episode was, safe to say, pretty insane. When it comes to Game of Thrones

  • the 4th episode is usually where things go down. The first three of the season is spent

  • on building up the story lines while episode 4 serves for it to heat up and continue on.

  • We get Dany showing off her old magic tricks, we finally get our pink letter and my favorite

  • character, Petyr Baelish, is back on the scene. I would go as far as to say that this episode

  • was better than 3 but still doesn't top episode 2 which is to be expected. The main purpose

  • of this episode is to get the ball going for the remainder of the season and it delivered.

  • Most of what we got was pretty good but there was one series of scenes that I'm starting

  • to get tired of and I think you guys will agree with me and I'll explain what I mean.

  • Let's get to the review.

  • So first let starts off with the Castle Black scenes. The starting conversation between

  • Jon and Edd is pretty fantastic and as i thought, he used that little loophole to get out of

  • the Night's Watch. He gave his life to them and they took it, to by force. Jon did what

  • we thought was right and now hes done and I can't blame him. Someone in Phil's comment

  • section last night said Jon has PTSD and I agree with that 100%. Yeah I understand that

  • this is a fantasy television show but that doesn't mean he can't have realistic issues

  • like we do in our own world. The guy just came back from the dead and that would disturb

  • the hell out of anybody. I can't blame Jon for wanting to leave but at the same time...what

  • will Jon do? knowing fully well that the White Walkers are coming down on them. Edd is right,

  • he can't just abandon them at this point but at the same time...what can the night's watch

  • even do? they have less than 50 men stationed there...are they going to fight thousands

  • of undead wildlings? its a difficult situation to dissect. Just then Sansa and her party

  • come in and we have a nice reunion between the two family members which i thought was

  • pretty cool.

  • The one thing I want to ask you guys is this: Did anybody ever see Sansa talking to Jon

  • Snow in season 1? I don't remember Sansa at all talking to him. She says that she was

  • a jerk to him but that might've been off screen. By episode 2 Jon was already on his way to

  • Castle Black and the only female stark I saw him interact with was Arya.

  • But as their conversation continues, we find Sansa wanting to fight back against the Boltons.

  • She brings up the same argument that Stannis and Davos has brought up before about the

  • wildlings fighting for their place in the north and I got to agree with her. Not because

  • I want to see Jon form an awesome army with them but because, logically, shes right. The

  • other Northern houses would not allow any Wildlings to settle on land in their territory

  • until the warden of the north ensures everybody that it's okay and gives them protection.

  • Sansa will do it herself if she must, rally some of the loyal houses to her cause but

  • I still feel bad for Jon. Hes been fighting ever since he got to the Wall and you can

  • tell hes tired. Hes tired of doing it all but Sansa's argument shines through....they

  • will not be safe so long as House Bolton holds reign over the north. Outside with get a little

  • conversation between Davos and Melisandre and some people have been asking "Why does

  • Davos care about what happens to Jon Snow?" well...I think its because what else is he

  • going to do? Stannis is dead...he has really nothing left to do. Stannis gave him an order

  • to go to Castle Black to seek assistance from Jon in defeating the Boltons and maybe hes

  • continuing on with that mission. Davos' true motivation is a bit blurry but I do hope they

  • give us a clear answer on that is.

  • We also learn that Melisandre has turned her services towards Jon but Davos doesn't look

  • too surprised. You can tell that in a sense, he still doesn't trust Melisandre's version

  • of what happened and I doubt she'll say anything until the very end. Even though Davos turned

  • to her to help bring Jon back hes still on the fence about her and I'm sure when the

  • truth comes out about Shireen's death he'll probably go over the edge and I can't wait

  • when that happens. As they talk eventually Brienne comes out of nowhere and confesses

  • that she killed Stannis and everybody gives her the stink eye. I got to say Brienne is

  • ballsy as hell to admit that but why didn't Davos get pissed off? you could argue that

  • Brienne is under Sansa's service now and that they're all on the same side but I was expecting

  • Davos to get really pissed off here but they all just stare at her like shes some kind

  • of stormtrooper with not enough screen time. Your best friend's killer is right there and

  • all you do is look at her? I mean come on dude...say something.

  • Eventually everybody goes to lunch and we find out that Tormund is really into Brienne

  • which I thought was hilarious and to be honest? it kind of makes sense that he'd be into tall

  • strong women. As they eat Ramsay sends his infamous pink letter and it's not as....douchey....as

  • I wanted it to be but it does the job to make everyone a little nervous. See even when Ramsay

  • isn't in the scene hes still casting a big shadow over everything. This letter makes

  • Jon want to spring into action and we find out that out of 100,000 wildlings...only 2000

  • capable fighters remain and a lot of people were asking what the hell happened to all

  • their men and to that I say...Hardhome. Remember the vast open field filled with people? most

  • of them were killed and turned into wights. The ones that were spared were the few that

  • got onto the ships and even then it wasn't that much considering most of the old and

  • children got on first.

  • The scenes at Castle Black were pretty fantastic and I loved every bit of them. I thought the

  • conversation between Jon and Edd was good, I loved Brienne coming out of nowhere to confront

  • Davos and Melisandre but it left me wanting a bit more. I loved the pink letter scene

  • and I really enjoyed Sansa and Jon coming together, it was a sweet moment and the music

  • played it out perfectly. And no I don't think they'll get together in a romantic way. People

  • were asking me that and sorry but...just because we have a male and female character who're

  • both attractive doesn't mean they need to be into each other. Castle Black this time

  • around was great but I have a feeling we won't be seeing much of it in the second half of

  • season 6...at least not until the end. I'm expecting the season to end with the wall

  • being destroyed and the white walkers coming through....I just hope Edd isn't around when

  • it happens.

  • Next we get my favorite character, Petyr Baelish coming back to the Vale to check in on Robin

  • Arryn who really sucks at shooting arrows but very good at being a little jerk. This

  • was a brief scene to show that Petyr has a tight grip over the lord of the vale and to

  • move into the next step of his plan. He successfully manipulates Robin into ordering the Knights

  • of the Vale to come to Sansa's aid but I wonder if they'll actually come in on time to turn

  • the tide of battle. It takes a while for large armies to move across such large terrain,

  • especially unnoticed. Since the first season Petyr has had control of Lysa and in turn,

  • control of the Vale and has kept their armies out of any conflict so they're one of the

  • few Houses who still have most of their forces intact but I do wonder what is his game here.

  • Hes using Sansa as a means to attack House Bolton without interference from the crown

  • and to ensure the other Stark loyal houses help him out but that only works as long as

  • Sansa is alive and well. He was counting on Stannis and Roose to weaken each other out

  • but he wasn't expecting Ramsay to be such an insane person and I'm sure that changes

  • his plans a lot...in the next episode preview we do see that he meets up with her again

  • and I really am interested in seeing what she says to him. But overall Petyr's scenes

  • were brief but it served its purpose to bring him back and move his story line along too....it's

  • just a shame we got him back in so late in the season but better late than never

  • Next we have Tyrion in Mereen trying to make some peace with the masters who have re-taken

  • Astapor and Yunkai and I've got to agree with both Missandei and Greyworm on this. There

  • is no making peace with them mainly because of what they said: slavery has been a thing

  • since the dawn of time and it's quite difficult telling someone who was born into such riches

  • and power and trying to have them give up some of that power for the good of the people,

  • I mean just look at North Korean dictator Kim Jong Douche. I love how Tyrion says that

  • slavery hasn't existed in Westeros for hundreds of years and that there are other ways of

  • making money without them....yeah but Westeros is rich in gold, copper, silver, fishing,

  • wheat, and so on while Slavery Bay is mainly located on harsh terrain and rely a lot on

  • the slaves to do most of the leg work. Tyrion's proposal for seven years to abolish all of

  • it is generous but I believe all hes really doing is giving them an opening to invade

  • Mereen. The fact that they met with him and not Dany is really telling and the masters

  • may see this peace offering as a sign of weakness and will attack. The scene we got afterwards

  • with the freemen getting annoyed at Tyrion for even starting negotiations with them really

  • is telling...there is years of hatred among them and I doubt peace is even possible at

  • all. I like what we got in Mereen this time around, I would even argue its a lot better

  • than what we've gotten so far and it feels like we're getting things done and moving

  • forward but the one thing I want to get to is the new Red priestess who is showing up

  • next episode. I definitely want to see how that plays out.

  • But it's like I said...at this point peace is almost next to impossible but Tyrion is

  • trying for a valid solution and I like that. Hes trying his best and nothing seals the

  • deal like ending negotiations with beautiful women. He knows how to play them but they

  • may end up playing him. All in all I liked Mereen this time around, it was interesting

  • and hopefully it continues to be so.

  • Next we have King's Landing and other than the scene between Margaery and the High Sparrow

  • which I really liked, I was just bored. I don't know about you guys but I'm starting

  • to get so annoyed with how slowly things are moving along in King's Landing. I expected

  • that ever since Jaime came back he would start wrecking the Sparrows but even he is being

  • hesitant to go in there and kill the them all with the zombie mountain. The High Sparrow

  • has been running around for the past 4 episodes doing what ever he wants and we're barely

  • getting anything but talking and talking. You can make the argument that if they all

  • move in too quickly than something could happen to Margaery but at the same time....Tommen

  • went in there with several kingsguard of his own...so he couldn't go back there for another

  • conversation and bring just a bit more men with him and apprehend all of them before

  • they could get to her? I expected that this would be the episode where things would start

  • moving along but it seems we have to wait until next week. In the trailer we saw Mace

  • Tyrell and Jaime leading a large group of Tyrell soldiers to get Margaery back but judging

  • by that scene with her and Loras she may pull a confession to try and save him and they'll

  • probably release her soon. I hate to cut King's Landing short but I just wasn't into it this

  • time around but I still do love Jonathan Pryce as the High Sparrow...he really got me into

  • that scene very easily.

  • The one thing I did notice is that Lancel is still with them and that Kevan, who is

  • now hand of the king, wants his son back...I'm going to assume that towards the end, Cersei

  • will have the zombie mountain kill Lancel for being a blabber mouth and have her

  • "little birds" that we saw last week take care of Kevan in the finale. That's just my

  • guess though

  • Next lets move on to Theon and his sister on the Iron Islands and I've got to ask...how

  • come everybody has goddamn teleportation powers? first the sand snakes and now Theon? last

  • time we was on the outskirts of Winterfell and now he was able to maneuver through all

  • that terrain and make it on to a boat that coincidentally would take him to Pyke? I'm

  • sorry but what? no. Regardless, like the Petyr scenes this one is only here so it can move

  • the Greyjoy story line along....but I'm still a little worried here. It's been 2 episodes

  • since we've seen Euron Greyjoy and there are no signs of him. One of the main problems

  • last season was how little we got of House Martell and it seems that they're fixing their

  • mistake when it comes to these guys but they still need to give us a bit more to actually

  • make his character meaningful. Theon has come back to help his sister Yara take over the

  • Iron Islands which was a big shock to me...hell I'm still surprised he managed to get passed

  • so many Northerners to get there but to help her rule? pretty bold of him. I just hope

  • Euron isn't used as some obstacle for her to overcome and is actually a legitimate threat.

  • But as for what we got this week with the Greyjoys? I wasn't too impressed. While Theon

  • coming back to the Iron Islands is a big game changer, their scenes this time around were

  • just there to move it along and I am curious to see how Theon will be able to support her

  • in the next episode when the selection of the kingsmoot begins.

  • Okay now we come to this controversial scene...I knew this was going to happen but I can't

  • say it comes as a shock. Ramsay killing Osha was bound to happen but I always thought it

  • would be towards the end of the battle of the north where he would burn her and maybe

  • Rickon alive to demoralize Jon's forces....I honestly didn't expect him to kill her but

  • once I saw her eyeballing that knife? her fate was pretty much sealed. While Osha was

  • never a really big character it did feel a little cold for them to kill her off that

  • way but I also understand not everybody gets a big death scenes that satisfies everybody.

  • People were also asking me if I thought Ramsay is just a little too evil for the sake of

  • it and to be honest I don't think so. I think hes just the right amount of evil to be the

  • big bad in the North that everybody hates. I've said it before and I'll say it again

  • he really is the Joker of Game of Thrones and he plays that part beautifully...even

  • his little smile when she asks him about the flaying and eating people. Little things like

  • that make the character for me. But now that Osha is gone I am curious to see if he'll

  • kill Rickon towards the end. Many of you were sending me pictures of the final battle scene

  • where you can see the body of someone Ramsay has killed and towards the bottom of the bottom

  • it kind of looks like a wolf's head...but its too blurry to tell if that is Rickon or

  • not so I'll save my opinions for when it happens or not. Still, I liked this scene, I thought

  • it as great but also kind of a bummer that she was taken out like that.

  • Now we come to the Vaes Dothraki scenes and first let me just say...I really enjoyed the

  • mission impossible stuff with Daario and Jorah sneaking up and killing those guys but something

  • tells me that Daario will probably be killed by his own knife since he kept saying hes

  • really attached to it...I don't know maybe it's just me watching too many Hollywood movies

  • but Game of Thrones has been a little too Hollywood lately so it's possible. As for

  • Dany and the killing of the Khals...while I thought it was badass of her i need to call

  • bullshit on a lot of things that even Preston Jacobs brought up

  • ....first...why didn't she just have Daario slit the throat of that young Khaleesi? I

  • mean they just met like 10 minutes ago so how do you know she wouldn't of opened her

  • mouth to the other women? not only that but how the hell can fire move up that quickly

  • across the stairs and burn wood that fast? not only that but why didn't one of the Khals

  • just run up to her and just slit her throat? they could've gotten around her, as they did

  • and just done it. Not only that but why doesn't her hair ever burn off? Targaryens aren't

  • immune to fire, in the books, but in the show I guess it's just a special genetic trait

  • that only she has.

  • Look don't get me wrong...I liked that scene its just that I think they could've done a

  • better job at making her more of a badass without over doing....also Dothraki hate magic

  • and witches and they've even said that she allowed Khal Drogo to be bewitched by one...so

  • when she comes out of that burning hut without a scratch on her wouldn't it make more sense

  • for them to want to kill her because she wasn't affected by the flames and to those people

  • that would kind of mean she has some sort of magical abilities? Just a thought. I did

  • think the scene was pretty cool though, I like that Dany is using her wits and not her

  • dragons to her advantage. Some peopel didn't like it because of all the bullshit that came

  • with it but I thought it was pretty cool despite all the weird stuff that happened. But I will

  • say this...I am sick and tired of these Westerosi coming into this country and killing unarmed

  • dothraki. hastag dothrakilivesmatter....seriously lets makes this a thing people. come on

  • With the exception of King's Landing this time around I thought the episode was good

  • and it did its job of moving along certain storylines for the second half of the season.

  • Petyr Baelish and the Greyjoys are what I'm really excited to see for the next episode

  • and I'm also curious to see what Dany will do now with all those Dothraki at her side.

  • Once again before I end the video I want to put the spotlight on another person in the

  • Game of Thrones community who I think deserve your attention and this time we have YouTuber

  • Preston Jacobs who is known around the community for his insane theories but also for his knowledge

  • of the books and how persuasive he can be in his videos. I'll leave a link in the description

  • below to his channel if you're interested in checking him out. Guys thank you so much
