Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Mhysa

    Good movie
  • Mhysa

    Loved the scene with Daenerys being embraced, but for a season finale I found this to be a little bit of a letdown. Expected more action.
  • ionee24 is lame

    Was hoping to get just a descriptive recap of the episode, but this person just destroys any semblance of an intelligible review by throwing in their personal thoughts as to what was going on in the minds of the director and writers during the production and filming of this show. Thank you ionee24 for making yourself look like one of those people that overuse a thesaurus just to make themselves appear intelligent, only to do the opposite and completely miss the purpose of allowing viewers to post their own reviews.moreless
  • Closure

    The season finale takes us right where we left off. The Hound carries his pup away from Edmure's wedding, Arya catches a glimpse of some Freys with the corpse of her brutally mutilated brother, and cries on the shoulder of her former enemy.

    For an episode called "Mother", its the fathers that stand out. Whether its the father of the Realm, for Stannis keeps fighting those who made the Kingdom bled, the father without a child, for Davos saves Gendry for the son he coudn't save when this season started, or the shield that guards the Realms of men, for Sam points it out it's RealmS: his job to save the son of Craster as much as it's to save the son of Ned Stark.

    It's a father what comes back to King's Landing, Jaime's identity rooted firmly on Brienne of Tarth. A father that disowns Theon, as Balon Grejoy turns his back on him. A father what Bolton's bastard wanted to be, as he re-baptizes Theon with a name suited for their connection, as twisted as said connection may be. And a father what The Hound becomes to Arya, as far as revenge is concerned.

    But Mysha is mother and a mother is what comes to Yunkai. Cersei's words lingering on the audience as Daenerys looks upon her children. Her joy something no one can take away from her, for no one could take it away from Cersei (not even Joffrey), and only death could take it from Lady Catelyn. For the mother cursed not to have a child, walks amongst the thousands of former slaves as their three fire-breathing brothers rise toward the sky.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Cersei Lannister: You want to make things better for Sansa? Give her a child.
      Tyrion Lannister: So you can tell father that it was you who finally talked me into it?
      Cersei Lannister: So she can have some happiness in her life.
      Tyrion Lannister: You have children. How happy would you say you are?
      Cersei Lannister: Not very. But if it weren't for my children, I'd have thrown myself from the highest window in the Red Keep. They're the reason I'm alive.
      Tyrion Lannister: Even Joffrey?
      Cersei Lannister: Even Joffrey. He was all I had once, before Myrcella was born. I used to spend hours looking at him. His wisps of hair. His tiny hands and feet. He was such a jolly little fellow. You always hear the terrible ones were terrible babies. "We should have known. Even then, we should have known." It's nonsense. Whenever he was with me, he was happy. And no one can take that away from me. Not even Joffrey. How it feels to have someone. Someone of your own.

    • Davos Seaworth: I didn't want to be a lord. I nearly didn't accept.
      Gendry: Why did you?
      Davos Seaworth: I did it for my son. I didn't want him to step over a river of shit every time he stepped through his front door. I wanted him to have a better life.
      Gendry: Does he?
      Davos Seaworth: He's dead.
      Gendry: How'd he die?
      Davos Seaworth: Following me.

    • Ramsay Snow: (to Theon Greyjoy) People talk about phantom limbs. An amputee might have an itch where his foot used to be. So, I've always wondered, do eunuchs have a phantom cock? Next time you think about naked girls, would you feel an itch?

    • Bran Stark: You ever heard about the Rat Cook?
      Meera Reed: No. Who's he?
      Bran Stark: Just a cook in the Night's Watch. He was angry at the king for something, I don't remember. When the king was visiting the Nightfort, the cook killed the king's son, cooked him in a big pie with onions, carrots, mushrooms, and bacon. That night, he served the pie to the king. He liked the taste of his son so much, he asked for a second slice. The Gods turned the cook into a giant white rat who could only eat his own young. He's been roaming the Nightfort ever since, devouring his own babies. No matter what he does, he's always hungry.
      Meera Reed: If the Gods turned every killer into a giant white rat--
      Bran Stark: It wasn't for murder the Gods cursed the Rat Cook or for serving the king's son in a pie. He killed a guest beneath his roof. That's something the Gods can't forgive.

    • Tyrion Lannister: The Northerners will never forget.
      Tywin Lannister: Good. Let them remember what happens when they march on the South.

    • Joffrey Baratheon: Write back to Lord Frey. Thank him for his service and command him to send Robb Stark's head. I'm going to serve it to Sansa at my wedding feast.
      Varys: Your Grace, Lady Sansa is your aunt by marriage.
      Cersei Lannister: A joke. Joffrey did not mean it.
      Joffrey Baratheon: Yes, I did. I'm going to have it served to Sansa at my wedding feast.
      Tyrion Lannister: No, she is no longer yours to torment.
      Joffrey Baratheon: Everyone is mine to torment. You do well to remember that, you little monster.
      Tyrion Lannister: Oh, I'm a monster? Perhaps you should speak to me more softly then. Monsters are dangerous, and just now, kings are dying like flies.

    • Sansa Stark: We could sheep shift Lord Desmond's bed. You cut a little hole in his mattress and you stuff sheep dung inside. Then you sew up the hole and make his bed again. His room will stink, but he won't know where it's coming from.
      Tyrion Lannister: (mock shock) Lady Sansa!
      Sansa Stark: My sister used to do that when she was angry with me. And she was always angry with me.
      Tyrion Lannister: Why sheep shift?
      Sansa Stark: That's the vulgar word for dung.
      Tyrion Lannister: My lady...
      Sansa Stark: Well, you asked me.
