    1. Here’s the synopsis which appeared this morning on my tv:

      “Jaime and Bronn sneak into Dorne by sea, but their arrival isn’t the secret they’d hoped it would be. Meanwhile, Sansa discusses her future with Littlefinger; Jon is tempted by Melisandre; and Tyrion had a new traveling companion on his way to Meereen.”

    2. Yung Wolf,

      Yup. Personally, I’m mostly looking forward to the post-episode discussion, interviews with the actors heavily involved in the episode’s big events, the behind the scenes “Inside the episode” material posted on Youtube, and of course the promo for next week.

    3. Oh no, only 51 minutes long.. 🙂 I’m really looking forward to what is going on in Meereen since we did not get any Dany last week, and because of the enigmatic “sons of the harpy” episode title.
      I’m also pleased that we are leaving the leak problems behind us.
      Have a good episode WotW fellows!!

    4. Luka Nieto,

      I wonder why they don’t have “Anatomy of a scene” for each episode. They only did it for the first one so far. Behind the scenes footage and info from the stunt, art, SFX departments etc. Much more intersting than watching D&D plus the cast give us a recap of what we’ve already seen.

    5. You know watching this series with only 30 seconds per character really makes me think I wish we could see 3 random people fighting over the seastone chair and what is happening to that random D list character blackfish at riverrun. I would really love to give up important screen time see what would be only an underwhelming glimpse of these characters which no one would remember.

    6. I swear, if D & D make the Sand Snakes kill Bronn, I’ll, I’ll type a very strongly, aggressive comment online!

      Seriously though, please don’t kill Bronn or Jaime for that matter. I take back everything I said about the stupid Yara prison breakout scene.

    7. Sorta annoyed, sorta happy. I won’t get to watch this as I’m going abroad for the week and I’ll be too busy. BUT, when I get back, I’ll get to watch this and the much-awaited* fifth episode in very quick succession! That’ll be awesome.

      (*I didn’t watch the leaks, but some guy on Youtube spoilt some things in episode 4 for me a few days ago).

    9. Looking forward to the episode. We’ve been in setup mode for a while, I’m ready for the shit to start hitting the fan. Based on the image of the Sons of the Harpy in front of some Unsullied (I think?) it looks like I’ll have my wish.

    10. Tyrion Pimpslap,

      Not at all. The Hound was a really interesting character. His cynicism was deeply affecting, his humour challenging and not based on impressions and manierism, his attitude stretched from the utter vulnerability to the utter machismo. A fully fledged persona one craved to have him all the time on screen. What a colossal difference to Bronn that pathetic figure, immoral to the bone, one dimensional and dull in spirit. The only pleasure he can give on screen is a really painful death.

    11. I did not watch the leaked stuff – I prefer to pay for my Game of Thrones and do it live – but an asshole on the Internet spoiled me. We’re in for a treat tonight. HYPE.

      I hope we get to see the Tyrion and Jorah roadshow tonight!

    14. Yeah. It’s going to be good when you don’t risk getting spoiled in the comments section. Hopefully discussion will pick up a bit once this episode is out, because things have been slightly muted here compared to normal (although wholly expected because of the leak. I don’t really care if people pirated the episodes or not, but to spoil other people, come on!)

    15. I hope this episode means that in the next set of Histories & Lore videos, we’ll get more detailed backstory on the “Sons of the Dragon” era – Aenys, Maegor, and the Faith Militant uprising.

    16. Kezzolt,

      Yea man I really wanna watch Loras go at it with Olyvar or whatever his name is instead for 5 minutes. Kill the people who have anything negative to say about the show! Yeah!!

    17. So looking forward to the end of this episode… then we will All be in the Dark and can begin our crazy speculations and reading of comments without been fearful of seeing a leaked episode spoiler. :o)

      Most interesting story for me so far this Season … Sansa and the events at Winterfell.

    18. Jeb,

      Heartily Agree! :o)

      There seem to be a few regular and well-regarded patrons who haven’t been posting on here lately and can only assume they have willed themselves to stay clear of all discussions and comments until the end of episode 4.

      Awww

      Well… I will consider you Well-Regarded if you can come up with a theory or speculation that makes me go ” Geez … I hadn’t thought of That! ” 🙂

      ps … I’m not well known on here either but have been viewing from the heavens since the first discussions begun. 😉

    20. Ok!!! Things I’m looking forward to:

      1) how they will move Jaimes character arc forward. I honestly don’t mind him being in Dorne, but for the love of Pete, we need him to get his soul searching / redemption arc back on track. It’s like he’s been in a coma since Brienne left with his metaphorical honor. But, Maybe that’s part of the point…

      2) Tyrion and Jorah yesyes! I expect they will go with a “which queen??” Gag. Wonder if we will see Tyrion diss Dany and get slapped

      3) I hope for something big in Danys arc now that it’s back on track. Want more tension there, and less book material…

      Not expecting to see any winterfell or the wall but happy to be proven wrong.

      Don’t. Care a bit about sandnakes or Bronn. Interested to see more doran.

    21. I feel like Bronn = Arys Oakheart and Jaime = Balon Swann, I hope it’s the other way around, though

        Quote  Reply

    22. McMahonchild,

      Luka Nieto,

      Why are alot of people assuming that Bronn or Jaime will die this coming season?
      Is it just because Arys Oakheart died in the books? ..or has it been confirmed that a fan favourite will die in Dorne?

      I’d be more worried about the amount of characters gathering at Winterfell and culling a few of them.

      If the writers are going to strike out a few major characters… I’d be Very concerned for Brienne, Theon and the Boltons!!!

    23. I need to gloat: WiC is running their “Live Show” again, and they only have three episodes this season so far, but even so….no one is leaving comments on them anymore. I don’t know how accurate of a measurement comments are relative to overall viewcount….but they had only 30 comments on the first one…then TWO on the second, and another TWO on the third….really only one comment in the third, complaining that they were late in posting it, and a terse reply by the staff.

      My running hope is that…a lot of casual readers didn’t check in during the off-season when there was less news, so a large number of readers….might not have realized just how much changed at WIC between the Season 4 finale and Season 5 premiere. I.e. the entire writing staff mutinying en masse and reforming into WOTW.Com.

      Weren’t they already panicking in Season 4 by the third episode that the LIve Show wasn’t bringing in numbers?

      Have you SEEN their live show now? One of them is this dude with weird hair who doesn’t even seem to know the TV series well but keeps asking obvious questions.

      Good news is that the guy with the glasses…the one who PERSONALLY did those “Weapons of Westeros” videos that plagiarized GOT Wiki….does not seem to have returned to WIC this season.

      I’m going to enjoy watching them fail.

      One of the last things Ned did before TOJ was free up Storms End which Stannis held at that point if I’m correct….maybe he has some inside speculation.I’m not sure how though because I don’t even think Ned knew what he was getting into at that point.

    31. All the pairs of cast members were excellent (even Bronn) but the scene between Shiren and Stannis was so well done. And the reworking of the Shireen theme heartbreaking… And what a drastic change for the character Stannis this season is!

    33. Doran’s Gouty Foot,

      It’s about damn time he

      got to show his talent. The whole frickin Unsullied group gets taken out, but Barry vs 5….

      Favourite moments:
      -Jaime’s face looking at Tarth
      -Tyrion getting sucker punched by Jorah. I want a gif of that.
      -Jaime’s hand vs sword moment. He’s getting a lot of humour out of that thing!

        Quote  Reply

    34. Amidst all of the chaos and plotting I liked the bizarre little aside of “No, that’s Tarth.”

    35. Nice episode

      Book Ser Barristan would have ripped through those Harpy’s in about 5 secs. At least he got to have a fight

      And why are the Unsullied fighting with Spears in close quarters, that’s when the short-sword is appropriate

      Totally OTT and stuck up grumbling aside, great episode. A nice talk between Stannis and Shireen…awwwww

        Quote  Reply

    36. I liked the previous two episodes better, especially last week. I think both Barristan and Greyworm are dead. Please no more LOTR style battles where one man kills 10-15 while being surrounded. That final battle did nothing for me.

      The best parts of the episode were again in the North. Stannis and Shireen made me all warm and fuzzy. Melisandre has still got it. And R+L=J is definitely happening.

      Episode rating – 8/10

    39. From what everyone was saying about the Sand Snakes scene, I was expecting far worse…

      I mean, really…? THAT’s the scene everyone was saying was so bad??

      The only thing about it that bothered me even slightly was, at the time, I felt Obara’s monologue kinda came out of nowhere (though I thought the monologue itself was fine)… It makes sense to me now though, knowing what she was going towards.

        Quote  Reply

    40. Still trying to catch my breath…

      Jaime’s long gaze at Tarth, the multiple mentions of Rhaegar, the crypts and Lyanna and the Tourney of Harrenhal (finally). A great episode for Jerome Flynn but I fear for Bronn.

      And my heart hurts for Barristan and Grey Worm.

      How could I forget Stannis and Shireen. I think that I love Stannis and Stephen Dillane.

      + Melisandre channeling Ygritte line, look on Jon Snows face was priceless

    42. Tyrion Pimpslap,

      I have to see the episode again but there was more than one man. And somehow the show justified that Barristan is/was one of the best swordsmen. I think they did it really well and you are unfair. I have to rewatch it though to focus on details. The Tarth reference was a saphire of tv association…

        Quote  Reply

    43. The episode 5 teaser is amazing!!! That shot of Stannis marching with that big ass army! The atmosphere!! Also something interesting I found, There is a flaming heart thing on Last Hearth which means the Umbers are supporting Stannis!! HYPED

    44. Obviously not hard to spot the theme, starts off with the Faith Militant running amok in KL and ends with the Harpy’s doing the same in Mereen…

        Quote  Reply

    45. Great episode.

      Two problems with the final scene:

      One, Barristan is supposed to arguably be the greatest knight in Westeros. Apparently, Sons of the Harpy with table knives are pound-for-pound #1 in Essos. It was underwhelming and didn’t do Barristan justice.

      Two, did anyone notice how Grey Worm was just chillin’ in the back and watching Barristan fight while 3 Sons just surrounded him and also watched in awe, not even thinking about attacking and killing a vulnerable Grey Worm?

      Also, not the final scene, but during Jaime’s fight against the Dornish guard his sword suddenly warped from outside of the guard’s arm to going through his chest in the space of one frame. It was one of the more noticeable screw-up’s that I’ve seen in the VFX department for the show.

        Quote  Reply

    46. dothrakian raven,

      It was Grey Worm and Barristan who killed like 20 men between them. The no names all went down like chumps. I just don’t like when the show goes for more action scenes. I feel like they do dialogue heavy back and forth scenes between two characters the best.

        Quote  Reply

    47. The Sand Snakes scene was cut down. That can probably explain why the scene seemed kinda out of place/rushed. No introduction.

      There’s a discussion between Nym and Tyene right before Ellaria appears, while Obara is meditating. It didn’t make the cut.

      I’m scared for [spoil]Shireen. Can’t shake the bad feeling from that split second of Selyse yelling on the floor from that one trailer.[/spoil]

        Quote  Reply

    48. Why, oh why, would Selmy venture out on his own with all of the recent Sons of the Harpy attacks?

      I call bullshit.

        Quote  Reply

    49. Hi-Fi,

      Selyse hates Shireen. She would probably throw her on the fire if Mel asked. Speaking of Mel, I really hope we get more scenes between her and Jon. I’m not sure what to think of her going south with Stannis.

        Quote  Reply

    50. Clob,

      I guess there was no way that we could have Selmy, GW, Tyrion, and Jorah all as Dany’s troupe at once.

      Episode 5 trailer question: Dany stands in front of only

      one shroud. Will Grey Worm survive, or simply live long enough for a last scene? I’m assuming he’s toast.

        Quote  Reply

    51. I’m going to wait until the recap thread to go over my thoughts in full, but overall I thought it was a great episode. Perhaps not quite as strong as last week, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. My only real disappointment was the length, as it felt really shirt. Guess that’s a good thing though really!

    52. Mike Tyson was once the worlds best boxer. And now he couldn’t compete against the top guys.

      Book Selmy is a joke. We have seen in prizefighting that once a guy gets older, he loses it and never gets it back.

      Even if Selmy was once the best, he was old enough that he would no longer be a big threat.

      The show is far more realistic then the books.

    53. :'( Uncle Barry! At least we got the “Queen of Love and Beauty” story.

      Can Kit sing?

      Oldtown mentions! Ha, Doubters! Stick THAT in your “Oldtown is cut” theories!

      But what was with, “You know nothing, Jon Snow.” ? Hmmmm…

      That father-daughter talk…love my little Shireen! And what does Stannis know about Jon?

      Perhaps we will not get Howland Reed.

      And Jorah…so desperate!

      Great episode! Great job, Mr. Dave Hill! And the cinematography was spectacular as usual. I wish I could remember (and spell and pronounce) this woman’s name. She’s really something.

      And I don’t hate the SS. They are what I expected. The curly-toed boots are fun! New fashion trend? 😉

      Worried about Bronn’s future after that fireside chat…

      Also worried for Jorah’s future after noticing that Ian Glenn’s name was last on the cast during the opening credits with a “with.” Is that a bad thing or a good thing when they list a long-term actor that way, does anyone know?

      Anyway, looking forward to rewatching with my casual-watcher husband later in the week. Watching my Blackhawks walk all over Minnesota now. GO ‘HAWKS!

      Goddamn it.

      At least he goes down with the best battle scene since Yoren’s death. How gallant. And he took out a dozen of the fuckers.

      Great episode. Fantastic, even. So many great, slow moments — the boat trip, Jaime and Bronn in Dorne (hysterical), the Shireen/Stannis scene (so tender, so thoughtful, so awesome), the Faith Militant!, the amazing scene in the Winterfell crypt.

      And then Barristan. That just killed me. Great.

    55. Tyrion Pimpslap,

      Oh, I know. But it’s one thing to say it, other to actually see your child killed in front of you. This emotional scene with Stannis before he leaves… I dunno. 🙁

      Agreed on Mel and Jon. I loved their scene tonight and I love their interactions in the books. I hope she stays behind and that the next time she tries to seduce him, we can see a little bit of his flesh, for a change (though I’m sure you’re not with me on that one lol).

        Quote  Reply

    56. Hi-Fi,

      Mel will go with Stannis in next episode on the march.So maybe one more Jon/Mel scene and that’s all.I can see some creepy talks from Mel to Jon like in the book.

    57. Easily my favorite episode thus far. Everything is slowing being synthesized and I’m really enjoying seeing that play out. Earlier this year, I was wondering what an adaptation of aFfC/aDwD would even look like, because D&D only have 10 hours to do it. Needless to say, I’m impressed.

      Two shoutouts:
      -The KL plot is being handled superbly imho, this episode in particular.

      Bron asking Jaime “But why *you*?” during their journey to Dorne. To me this gets at the core of Jaime’s aFfC/aDwD character development (that is, having something to prove, trying to be Tywinn II etc.) Just a detail that I thought motivates Jaime’s S5 plot pretty darn well.

    58. My bet is that they’re both dead, but there’s only enough room for one to lie in state at a time. We got that shot of Missandei in the trailer kissing a pretty dead looking GW. No way he makes it through the season.

      I’ll miss Selmy, but I think it was a good way for him to go. I don’t think he’ll survive the Battle of Fire, and I don’t think the showrunners have the budget to show both battles (Winterfell and Mereen), so the Battle of Fire is cut. I’m guessing what we saw here is just a scaled-down version of his death scene in Winds.

    60. Interesting in the preview with Rhaegal. Is it possible that he will light Barristan’s funeral pyre? Would be a bit weird, but it does kinda look like they are all standing in the crypts. Could just be the way it’s cut together.

    61. I also noticed from the shot of Stannis’ army leaving Castle Black that they really nailed the cold, dark atmosphere. It’s just how I imagined it would be and I feel cold just looking at it.

    62. ACK!!! Ser Barry is dead already! Well he’s been underutilized by the show from day one so whatever. No way grey worm is dead… I hope?!?

      Favorite scene was the sansa LF one, by FAR! I think his plan, while risky, does make sense. It’s good that sansa has a challenge… I actually think there is a chance LF is right about show!Ramsey. He seems to have the capacity to be controlled, though it’s unclear whether anyone but Roose has done so before. He’s not just an animal. I also think plan c will happen and she will be leaving WF before stannis gets there, because Even if Ramsey doesn’t hurt Sansa, his girlfriend will… Maybe Ramsey will “punish” her in a twisted attempt to win sansa over. *shudder*

      Jaime was whatever except when he looked at Tarth. Sandnakes as bland as the books. The soldiers J and B fought had more personality. Was entertained by Bronn – I enjoy when they use him to talk to book readers (how does this plan make any kind of sense? It doesn’t.), very meta.

      What else… Poor lil Tommen! Cersei appears to have won a round. My namesake incoming, watch out!!

      They are really laying on the positive Stannis characterization THINK. Makes me fear for his life. Damnit show.

      Oh, I’d suspect age, and lack of fighting for a while, had something to do with it. Plus he couldn’t see their faces; you read a lot in people’s faces when you are talking with them, I’d assume the same thing when you are fighting

      I thought Selmy would probably die this season, but not so fast! Fortunately the calvary is coming

      Honestly those guys creeped me out.

      Poor Tommen! And Margery realizing the disadvantage of marring a boy king without having any power herself….

      Sand Snakes were just fine; dialogue a little stilted, but no where near as bad as folk here were saying

      Interesting boat travels for both Lannister boys.

      Not sure this was the best episode of the four, but still enjoyed the heck out of it.

      Sadly, I can’t see another instance where Jon would ever take his clothes off again.

      Looks like the Winterfell subplot will start picking up next episode. I’m guessing Myranda will try something against Sansa and will be punished by Ramsay. Anyone has a guess to what’s going to happen to Mace and Loras?

      I’ve been out of the loop for nearly a year not visiting here, so apologies if this is all old talk.

    68. The fight was good, but not worthy enough of a demise for the greatest knight in Westeros, D&D blew it, can’t they think outside the box here.

      I would have added a badass Boss Alpha Son of Harpy, have him seriously injure Greyworm and Ser Barristan fight through 12-14 Sons of Harpy, then an epic but quick fight with Boss Harpy to show how badass he was, but gets mortally wounded, and checks on Greyworm instead, before falling over him. That’s way more epic a final battle, Ser Barristan and the actor deserved that fight. The books gave Ser B and epic boss fight and an epic battle, the worst change from the books yet D&D.

      Now all Dany has left is an ass hole Sellsword, even if Jorah and Tyrion arrive, all three of those combined cannot live up to the prestige of having Ser Barristan as guard and advisor. Should have killed off Daario instead, he was a jerk in the books and never amounted to much but a distraction for Dany.

      On a positive note, love the shout out to Tarth, and man is Obara a cold blooded viper, throwing that spear so non-chalantly into the captains head, like he was no more than a bug to her. I think that was Ned’s tomb, did you notice all the freshly lit candles, and the Shireen/Stannis scene is now my favorite of all Stannis appearances to date.

      Queenofthrones,

      I feel as though the Ep5 trailer is kind of throwing out the notion of Ramsay being controllable!

      As a member of the brother/sisterhood without previews this season, I have no idea!!! I have been wrong a lot of times before haha. 🙂

    70. Ashara D: Also worried for Jorah’s future after noticing that Ian Glenn’s name was last on the cast during the opening credits with a “with.” Is that a bad thing or a good thing when they list a long-term actor that way, does anyone know?

      Peter Dinklage was listed last in the cast credits throughout season 1. I can’t remember if it said “With Peter Dinklage,” or “And Peter Dinklage,” only that his name was last.

    71. I left the episode Hoping that Ser Barristan would maybe survive, at least for the next episode, but then I went into the Viewer’s Guide, and beside his name is the “Decease” word…

      Noooo!!!
      🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁

      I really liked his stories about Rhaegar…

      I was hoping of more of those… 🙁

    72. Yung Wolf: One, Barristan is supposed to arguably be the greatest knight in Westeros. Apparently, Sons of the Harpy with table knives are pound-for-pound #1 in Essos. It was underwhelming and didn’t do Barristan justice.

      Oh, I don’t know about that. He took out how many, about a dozen of them? How many fighters on the show have we seen that can handle that, realistically? The Hound, probably. I think they more than did him justice in the end for having him do what he did.

      And I didn’t see what Grey Worm was doing. I’ve previously said that the show has been pretty good with choreography on this front – the Hound/Arya fight in “Two Swords” gets this particularly right. But Grey Worm was pretty badly injured. So there’s that.

    73. dothrakian raven,

      I hadn’t noticed that in season 4, thanks.
      I just know sometimes the final name is used as a place of importance (on a variety of shows and films)…someone who can’t have top billing, for whatever reason, but is considered too important or big to throw in the middle of a bunch of other names.

    74. Spoiler for Ep5 trailer:

      From the trailer, it looks to me as though Ramsay and Myranda are in front of a window, with Sansa looking up, then looking visibly upset, then Ramsay giving her a smug look at a dinner table (perhaps taunting her with what she’s ‘in for’?) It could be cut to appear that way, with Brienne voicing over the danger she’s in. Anyone?

    75. Pigeon,

      Could just be how it’s cut, I actually thought she was looking up at the tower where Bran fell from? Could be wrong though

    76. ……and I thought last week’s episode was top stuff! This week was GREAT!!!! My daughter and I having the same reactions at the same time just added so much fun to the party! So where was Jon’s mini me????? There’s never a steward around when you truly need one! 🙂
      Loved Mel’s brush off of Jon’s concern for Stannis’ feelings! You know nothing Stannis Baratheon!
      Again, cudos all around. Writing, directing and acting all top bunk!
