Game of Thrones Recap: 'Sons of the Harpy'

Originally posted 05/03/2015 10:10PM

Chat, chat, stab-stab, chat, chat, stab-stab. This week's episode of Game of Thrones was largely a series of intimate, well-written character-driven discussions between two wounded souls in conflict – then fun stabby action scenes. And one of those fights resulted in the loss of a character who has been with the series since season 1 (AND is still alive in the books, because that's just how Thrones rolls now).

Game of Thrones Recap: 'High Sparrow'

The Great Convergence – and Divergence – has begun! This week's Game of Thrones jammed two sets of characters together for the first time, while taking a shocking turn from George R.R. Martin's novels. Plus, Arya (Maisie Williams) ditched her clothes, Tommen (Dean-Charles Chapman) ditched his virginity, Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen) ditched Sansa (Sophie Turner), Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) ditched his freedom and Jon (Kit Harington) ditched a man's head. All this plus prostitute cosplay(!) in our worship of the third episode of season 5, "High Sparrow."

Braavos

Behold the inside of The House of Black and White! Thrones shows off this fancy new set with several shots so we can appreciate all the production detail. The House has the ambience of a gloomy spa's quiet room, where you would sit in a bathrobe sipping cucumber water waiting for your therapist.

Arya grumpily sweeps the stone floor with what looks like a Nimbus 2000. She's unimpressed with the set and annoyed with her janitorial duties. Jaqen H'ghar (Tom Wlaschiha) gives a desperate man a cup of water, then chastises Arya for her impatience: "A girl wants to serve herself."

How did hissing ever stop being a thing? You still hear the expression "boo and hiss," but never really hear a crowd totally hiss in unison, just occasionally boo.

Sunday's eagerly awaited Game of Thrones premiere gave fans plenty to talk about: The fantasy hit's first-ever flashback scene starred Mean Girl Cersei, a game-changing conversation between Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) and Varys (Conleth Hill) demanded a singularly unique recap, Daario's (Michiel Huisman) butt made a return appearance and one recurring character was subject to a brutal burning at the stake (a.k.a. what HBO's lawyers are planning to do to whoever leaked its Thrones screeners online).

Game of Thrones: 6 Spoiler-Free Secrets from Season 5

Originally posted 04/12/2015 01:50PM

The first installment of George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series of epic fantasy novels was released a whopping 19 years ago.

When HBO launched Game of Thrones in 2011, the devoted fandom that developed in the intervening years had a lot to say about the adaptation of the source material – and they still do (as is the right and beauty of a thriving fandom).

As season 5 of Thrones begins, it's safe to say fans of Martin's series are basically going to lose their minds over the latest developments – for better or for worse. While purists may not enjoy that events from the books are conflated or dropped entirely from season 5, less literal devotees may find themselves enjoying a tighter, cleaner narrative.

Game of Thrones is known for its most shocking moments – brutal massacres, gratuitous sex, horrific weddings, gut-wrenching tragedy (plus, literal gut-wrenching). But aside from shaking us to our core on a weekly basis, the HBO hit teaches us about what it means to be – and succeed as – a human being in a cruel, unforgiving world.
