Game of Thrones (HBO): Season 5/Episode 2

5.2 The House of Black and White
Podrick and Brienne run into Sansa and Petyr Baelish, but are faced with the same trust issues they had with Arya and the Hound. Cersei receives a veiled threat from Dorne. Ellaria Sand (Indira Varma) is vowing revenge for Oberyn’s death, but Doran Martell (Alexander Siddig) won’t let her touch Myrcella. Jaime vows to get his daughter back and enlists the help of Bron for his quest. Stannis offers Jon Snow official status as a Stark, Lord of Winterfell, if he pledges his services to him. He is tempted, but doesn’t give in. A vote is cast at Castle Black naming him as their new commander. Arya finally reaches Braavos but is refused at the doors of the House of Black and White, only to be accepted later on to commence her training. Ser Barristan warns Daenerys against the excessive use of power and how it corrupted her father, leading to the Targaryen dynasty’s downfall. An unpopular decision earns her the ire of the people of Meereen. In her time of despair and confusion, she gets a rather short visit from Drogon.

Is Stanny B dying yet? He’s so annoying and has no charisma, the only contender left for the Iron Throne, but I don’t really see him inspiring anyone. Everyone at Castle Black is annoying AF, especially that bald guy who hid in a room with Gilly. It’s a good thing Sam put him in his place. I’m not that thrilled about Jon Snow’s new position, though. It seems like they have been wanting this to happen for a long time now, but I’m not convinced. Drogon can actually just fly over Castle Black, barbecue everyone there, and I’m sure I won’t even miss them. As for Dragon Mama’s queenly dilemmas, I guess that can’t be avoided when you have such lofty political ambitions. Leaders are heroes to some, villains to many. There really is nothing you can do to please everyone. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. Again, I recommend Drogon flying over Meereen and barbecuing everyone. Nothing can’t be solved when you have a giant fire-breathing reptile on your side, you know. That’s why I always choose Charmander over Pikachu.

“Nothing’s worth anything to dead men.” –Arya Stark
