Episode 17: "A Man Without Honor"
l'm not even bothering to hide any spoilers, because nothing of value happened, except the following:
- Daenerys, "Mother of Dragons" is in yet another jam with an usurrping figure.
- Jon Snow has a Pine Barrens experience and gets captured by Wildlings.
- Prince Waterboy* goes after the escapees and shows two hanged, burned corpses, supposed to be them (yeah, right).
- Sansa got her period, something that was being waited on since the beginning of the first season.
Don't get me wrong. It's clear this episode is a setup for a payoff, but again, half of it was angsting and whining.
Seriously, unless I missed something critical, I'd say you probably could have skipped this episode or at least fast-forwarded it. Even Tyrion's scene seemed obligatory.
*If you've never watched Game of Thrones, that's not his real name, so don't worry.
