  1. Thought the first half was boring beyond belief but then it caught fire with the trial. How good is Peter Dinklage? Those closing moments were electric! I do hope, however, that someone kills Stannis soon so we’re spared more scenes with him. Also found Mark Gatiss turning up rather unnerving! Especially as he was doing his Mycroft impression!

    • It was a very Mycroft sort of portrayal, wasn’t it? Although that was very much in keeping with the Iron Bank’s rational philosophy, I thought.

      I think we can be sure that this episode will go up in front of the committee as Dinklage’s Emmy reel when it comes to awards season. He continues to be magnificent – one of the few actors with the stature (if you know what I mean) to stand toe-to-toe with Charles Dance as Tywin.

      I know what you mean about the first half of the episode, but I still liked it. Obviously the slower-burning plots need to be kept going, and I did enjoy the way they all fitted together to show us different angles on the cost of (in)justice and loyalty, just as last week’s episode was based around different views on the nature of power. Mind you, can Stannis just stop moping and actually do something?
