So we are arrived to the second part of season 5. Episedes 5 and 6 were both worth 8/10 in my opinion, which is kinda disappointing if you compare this season to a mesmerizing season 4.
Story moves on, not arriving to payoffs yet. As i guessed already couple of episodes before, this season in more of building up a story, with nothing that much happening. Sure, as usual these last two episodes had great set design, costumes, good acting, but nothing so far that would make us jaws dropped. Episode 6 is just a prof of that - 53 min. and it's kinda interesting, but feels not that good. Now the things moved a bit further to a payoff, but yet again, i want' siting on the edge of seat during them, and that is a bit of a letdown compared to a previous seasons, where anything and anytime could happen.
Overall, episode 5 and 6 were good, but far from great. Story moves on, but something here is missing. I truly believe that following episodes will revive that unforgettable feeling of uncertain in "Game of Thrones", but so far previous episodes lacked it.
