When Daenerys enters the room with the painted table, this evokes imagery of when Aegon the Conquerer began his invasion of Westeros, using the table as a map to plan his conquest. Daenerys plans on doing much the same. See more »

Less Is More...........
2 August 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Very often TV shows tend to go hell bent for leather with scant disregard for what has gone before.this episode is a perfect example of that old maxim "Less Is More".....a slow opening,some great production values,an almost total lack of dialogue from some main characters...all these add up to a great season opener that has gravitas,thought,depth and some great fave band is Rush but I listen to Slayer as well,you need light/ can't be pounded over the head all the time,you need to breathe and appreciate what the quiet really can bring can't have constant battles/warfare without the little things that add greatly to an episode or a series....
