Game of Thrones is always on people’s lips. Whether they’re talking about how good it is, the shocking moments that have happened, or even debating about the books and the show, everyone is always talking about it. Unfortunately, it’s not always for a good reason. Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken is easily the worst episode of the season so far, and you all know why. But let’s get through the positives first before we discuss....That.
The other positive that came in this episode was the performance from Finn Jones as Loras Tyrell. We’ve already discussed how stupid this plotline is but at least it gave Jones a chance to truly shine in this episode, where he stopped being the character that was gay for the sake of being gay, and actually unleashed some emotion. Bravo, sir.
On top of that, the episode was just completely boring. None of the storylines feel like they’re going anywhere. We’re on Episode Six, meaning there’s four more left and yet most of these stories (Namely Jorah’s story, Arya’s story and Dany’s story) don’t even feel like they’ve reached the halfway mark. Hopefully this is just for the sake of setting up bigger things but it does not make for good entertainment. At least the Stannis and Jon storylines are going exciting places.
Disappointing, Game of Thrones. Extremely disappointing.
