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 for watching, as always leave your questions down below for my up coming Q&A video, sorry I couldn't do one last week but I'll try and make that up to you with some special videos.
