Seeing it unfold was so much more painful than reading it.... I read ASoS for the first time years ago, but this episode was sufficiently traumatising to keep me from sleeping last night. Stunned and traumatized.
Jerry from TotH, BTW.
Currently writing my review, will go up tomorrow. I'm still shaken, and I read the fucking book about ten times.
I just sat there for like 40 minutes afterwards. I muted the tv after the silent credits. Stunned and shaken. Probably the most awful and disturbing thing I've ever seen in a television show.
Finished the review. It contains one line about the Dany storyline this episode: that I don't care. Same feeling?
Agree entirely. Good for her. When measured against what is transpiring on the GreenFork, the significance of the fall of Yunkai's bed slave industry drops to barely detectable level. The lighting of a match vs. The explosion of a hand grenade.
Bazinga. Does this mean the Starks can count on the State Dept of Volantis to aid the quest for vengeance?
