Things are not going well for Stannis and his army. Winter is upon them and they are attacked in the night losing most of their stores. Unable to move forward or back, he dispatches Ser Davos Seaworth to seek help from Castle Black. Jon Snow and the survivors of the attack at Hardhome make it safely back to the wall but the reception they get is anything but warm. In Dorne, Doran Martell takes the diplomatic route telling Jaime that Myrcella can return to King's Landing with him provided certain conditions were met. In Braavos, Arya sees Lord Tyrell who arrives to speak to representatives of the Iron Bank. He's accompanied by Meryn Trant, one of the men on her list. In Meereen, the Great Games begin but the needless killing is not to Daenarys or Tyrion's liking. Ser Jorah defeats his opponents in the arena but a trap is sprung and the Sons of the Harpy attack. Rescue is at hand however.Written by
An emotional and compelling episode that made me feel a bit sad
The Dance of Dragons is not only another classic episode, but it felt more emotional and compelling and it made me feel a bit sad. Mostly because of the choice Stannis made when he choose to sacrifice Shireen Baratheon, a sweet and innocent girl. I've heard that it polarized critics and fans of the books. Some liked it for it's strong character development while others hated it for betraying Stannis' character after the past few seasons. Anyway, everything else is so compelling.
The characters are still believable, the story/script is well-written this time around, the action is great especially the end of the movie where Daenerys flies on her dragon which takes your breath away and the music score from Ramin Djawadi suited really well. The pacing is great and doesn't drag, the directing is great, the scenery/set/costumes are still gorgeous to look at, and the performances are still great. So, overall, another classic episode that is emotional and compelling. :)
