Game of Thrones (S6E08) -- "No One" -- 6/12/16



While Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) weighs his options, Cersei (Lena Headey) answers a request. Tyrion's (Peter Dinklage) plans bear fruit. Arya (Maisie Williams) faces a new test.

Written by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss; directed by Mark Mylod.

So tonight's episode should be the big action one, right?

Episode 9 next week is called
Spoiler:
The Battle of the Bastards.
So I'd assume next week is the big one.

Pretty much every seasons episode 9 is the 'one' to watch of the season.

Last year it was episode 8, Hardhome, but that is true of some of the other past seasons.

Honestly every episode this season has been 'the one to watch'

I think they've been knocking them out of the park every week

Not sure. That's the only reveal that IMO would come at the end of the season. If they don't do it this season I don't see it happening.

The scenes with Tyrion, Missandei and Greyworm are painful. Is that really the best dialogue D&D can come up with? That was as bad and awkward as last season's scene between the three.

Sooo, Edmure is going to march North with his forces, taking the deal The Blackfish wouldn't take? Gotta assume that was the agreement to letting him go. The scene between Edmure and Jaime was good.

I still don't understand why those handful of Brotherhood without Banners members went rogue. Doesn't make any sense other than to give The Hound a reason to fight again. Bad writing.

Cersei storyline...what were those rumors again that Qyburn was referring to? Forgot. Interesting about the Trial by Combat being banished.

Arya storyline...meh. So Jaqen decides "OK, you've killed a Faceless Man (Woman), so you're free to go"...? Heh? I'm also annoyed that Jaqen, the Waif, and Arya are the only people we've seen in the House of Black & White. There has to be more assassins. Everyone is conveniently out on missions at all times? No one is praying or training or whatever else? Please.

That may have been the worst episode of GoT ever. Nothing made sense.

The Arya resolution is completely anti-climatic. I thought it was the latest Jason Bourne movie for a minute, then nothing. I don't understand why Jaquen just let her go, seems to be completely against the whole idea.

Aw, man. I wanted at least one shot of the dragon setting all those boats ablaze.

And yeah, that Arya chase scene was weird and felt out of place on this show.

Odd episode. A few good moments, but it seemed disjointed and like it almost doesn't fit with the earlier episodes of the season. Very anti-climactic.

Either way, next week should be fantastic.

The Arya stuff was incredibly unsatisfying, whether it be not actually seeing the fight between them and that it made the events of the last episode, let alone the last couple seasons, kind of a waste and nothing but time filler.

Didn't care for the Blackfish stuff either, it also felt like a waste of time with Brienne showing up there.

The production can afford to throw a handful of extras into the scenes.

I can't really see how the character would fit in to the story at this point.

Spoiler:
Jamie and Brienne at Riverrun has passed so LSH can't send Brienne to kill him. The Brotherhood seems to be the first group outside of the Watch to realize what's coming from the other side of the wall instead of focusing on killing Freys and Lannisters.

It would cheapen Jon's return if yet another character is brought back by another Lord of Light follower.

Seemed like kind of waste for them to have the Blackfish survive the Red Wedding only to kill him off unceremoniously off-screen three years later in his next appearance. I suppose some Tully soldiers loyal to him could have let him go, but he seemed determined to not run and go down fighting. Reminds me of Stannis.

And, yes, that Arya-Waif chase scene seemed really out of place, like something out of a modern action movie. And the Waif running through the streets like a T-1000 looked goofy.

Jaime's going to end up killing Cersei. Don't know when, don't know why, but I just have a feeling...

Wanted to see Drogon strafing those ships with fire, too. Dany ain't gonna need them. I expect Yara to show up in Meereen any day now.

I also have a feeling there's going to be a big bloodbath in Kings Landing in the finale. Cersei will make it, but I think the High Septon, Tommen, Margery, Loras, Kevan, and others (Pycelle? Mace Tyrell?) will meet their ends. Just a hunch, but it seems like all of the shit going down in KL just isn't that important to the greater plot and the Red Keep is going to cleaned out. (Also note that Jaime and Olenna are conveniently out of the picture.)

Damn good episode. The Mountain ripped a dude's head off and The Hound made minced meat out of some degenerates. Fuck yes.

Missendai is so hot and she was getting drunk - so fucking hot. I love that broad.

The Arya stuff was cool and I thought it had a very "terminator" feel to it. That short haired blinded twat would not stop ever until Arya was dead. Jaime taking the castle by non-lethal force was great - using the art of leverage in his dealings. Bron punking Podrick added some levity to everything else. Next week's episode is all rock 'n roll.
