Quotes

Night's Watchman: A letter for the lord commander.
Jon Snow: I'm not the lord commander anymore.
[a pause. Jon takes the letter, examines the seal and opens it]
Jon Snow: [reads the letter aloud] "To the traitor and bastard Jon Snow, You allowed thousands of wildlings past the wall, you have betrayed your own kind, you have betrayed the North. Winterfell is mine, bastard, come and see. Your brother Rickon is in my dungeon, his direwolf's skin is on my floor, come and see. I want my bride back. Send her to me, bastard, and I won't ...

Two Fantastic Scenes in One of the Best Episodes
16 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

Sansa arrives at Black Castle with Brienne and Podrick and reunites to Jon Snow, who has resigned from the Night's Watch after the deception of the betrayal of his brothers. Sansa tries to convince him to attack and retake Winterfell while Brienne meets Davos and Melisandre and warns that she killed Stannis and she does not forget or forgive the assassination of Renly through black magic. Littlefinger returns to Runestone and is welcomed by his nephew Robin and convinces him to send his army to protect Sansa at Castle Black. In Meereen, Tyrion negotiates a truce and the end of the support to the Sons of Harpy with the masters of Slaver's Bay. Jorah and Daario arrive at Vaes Dothrak and they meet Daenerys that explains a plan to them. Margaery meets the High Sparrow and he tells how he learned the truth. Tommen tells to Cersei that Margaery will be exposed to the people soon, and Cersei plots a scheme with Olenna to destroy the High Sparrow. Theon returns to the Iron Island and after a cold reception of Yara, he tells that he wants to support her. Ramsey stabs Osha with a knife killing her in Winterfell. Jon Snow receives a letter from Ramsey with insults and threatening him. Daenerys is brought to the khals in a temple and the set in motion her evil plan.

"Book of the Stranger" is among the best episode of "Game of Thrones". Every segment is excellent and important, but the reunion of Sansa and Jon Snow and the final scene of Daenerys and the khals are spectacular. The encounter of Brienne with Davos and Melisandre is tense. Soon the viewers will certainly see the bloody war that is coming. The powerful music score in the end is another great attraction of this great show. My vote is nine.
