Thoughts On: Game of Thrones...S5E6...

           I love this show, but to be honest,  it's not really satisfying me...

1. Jaime's SEAL 6 Mission:
This unfolded really cheaply...
a) Jaime and Bronn sneaked into the palace just like that
b) Jaime and Bronn walk all over the grounds with terrible disguises with out knowing where Myrcella is, and...
c) Myrcella's in the middle of a kiss and is resistant to go...
d) The Sand Snakes show up at the perfect time to ruin everything...
That scene felt like an entire cliche.

2. How Come Everybody is Getting Captured This Season:
Tyrion and Loris got Captured one way or another some episodes ago. This episode saw even more of that. Tyrion and Jorah both got captured by slavers, Jaime and Bronn got captured by Dornish guards,
and Margery got captured by the Faith Militant. I get that captivity creates tension, but now we have the fates of Margery, Loris, Jaime, Bronn, Jorah, and Tyrion all on the line and it feels like a little much.

3. The Sansa Rape Scene: 
It was completely uneccesary. As far as I know it wasn't in the books which makes it even worse. I'll still watch the show, but with less respect. That said...hope Stannis kills Ramsey himself...

4. The Arya Scene's Were Slow:
...They really were, and I don't really care to much about her learning any of the faceless stuff. Her goings on are now the least plot related stuff on this show.

5. Little Finger:
It's really feeling like he's the only one still actually playing the game of thrones. Other than Stannis and the Boltons, the other characters are not doing a lot for me...
a) Cersei has really just been pouting all season long
b) Jaime has been going on a mission for a character that we don't really care about
c) Dany is bogged down in Mereen
d) John Snow is still in the snow
Peter...props...
   
           I hope episode 7 brings more respectably to a show that really seems to be losing it's way...
