It is absolutely bleak instalment for the whole season, with more tense plots setting and furious conflicts among the main characters.If you do not belive, just view Game Of Thrones Season 2 DVD.You will be shocked as always.
The stakes get higher every week. The number of claimants to various thrones increases as various underlings get their leathers in a twist and start declaring independence. Even in the quietest episode, it is still full of killing.
This week's episode of Game Of Thrones Season 2 was rich with the usual suspects excelling, but there was a stand-out scene featuring two of the show's MVPs and one of the important characters from the first season.Much like the Jon Snow story this week, it went from tense to lighthearted, and was the polar opposite of Theon Greyjoy.
Not Bran, who sleepily dismisses his attempts at conquest, and certainly not Ser Rodrik Cassel. It seems like the guy can't win for losing; the way this character is going seems right in Alfie Allen's wheelhouse as an actor.
Then we're off to the great white north to learn lessons about wildlings, though thankfully this lesson involves a great new character in the form of Ygritte.Still, I'm grateful for the wildling woman, she embodies true grit.
The episode drags when Robb Stark takes time out of making war to romance a young (lesser known) Lady. A shame, that. Lady Stark also remains a shadow of her season one work; she's being used merely to tie a myriad of geographies together.
It's a surprisingly gentle moment — if it weren't for the words coming out of Theon's mouth, you could believe it was just a loving sibling explaining an important life lesson to his younger bro.
He's at least shamed into doing the deed himself, which he fails at, miserably. He hacks away at Rodrik's head in a moment of extreme pathos and blood.Most desperate of all, however, was Theon who finally bought himself to the point of no return, executing Ser Rodrik to keep his men on his side.
Not everybody gets to be a hero and not every villain starts out with bad intentions. Unlike his former best friend Robb, he's still a boy playing at war.
Game of thrones has becoming increasingly intense, more battles, more furious collides.It will certainly make this series further watchable.You can appreciate more movie reviews at guardian.
