Game of Thrones - Episode by Episode #17

I knew we had too long of a string of good episodes.  At least there wasn't bad sex.

Episode 17: "A Man Without Honor"

l'm not even bothering to hide any spoilers, because nothing of value happened, except the following:

  1. Daenerys, "Mother of Dragons" is in yet another jam with an usurrping figure.

  2. Jon Snow has a Pine Barrens experience and gets captured by Wildlings.

  3. Prince Waterboy* goes after the escapees and shows two hanged, burned corpses, supposed to be them (yeah, right).

  4. Sansa got her period, something that was being waited on since the beginning of the first season.

In fact, the only thing that was a surprise to me was that the old man who was the Maester, who I thought ran away from Winterfell, was actually in Winterfell all the time.

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.
