Game of Thrones keeps delving into murkier and murkier territory, as we sift through the ashes of war and the show adapts George R.R. Martin’s most morally ambiguous books. So maybe it’s not a surprise that too much loyalty poses as much danger as betrayal. Spoilers…
Last week’s episode was the traditional “check in on a dozen simmering plots” season opener. But this week’s “The House of Black and White” is a bit more focused.
In particular, this episode is about: 1) Arya Stark arriving in Braavos and getting accepted by Assassin Academy. 2) Daenerys deciding whether to execute a captured terrorist, and then the terrorist’s murderer. 3) Brienne of Tarth finding Sansa Stark and getting shot down again. 4) Jon Snow turning down the Stark name and getting elected High Commander. 5) Jaime Lannister decides to go to Dorne… with Bronn! 6) Tyrion is bored.
