    Episode 5 is the best so far IMO. Decent amount of tension the whole way through. Alicente's naivety is gone and the real game of thrones is underway. Larys is great, slimy as fuck. The quality of the acting is very good, as are the visuals, costumes and music. The show continues to deviate from the source material but nothing too egregious. Bummed that I have to wait a week for the next episode.

    I liked Larys Strong playing the game. Shifty little bastard lol. His brother is great too, punching his way through the crowd.

    Wow this was the best episode so far. Larys becoming the cunning cunt. Alicent bringing war during that speech. Ser Christan almost committing seppuku.

    ser Criston isn't the brightest candle in the candelabra, he actually thought she'd gonna be poor with him. Also note to self: always wait for the accusation before confessing anything.

    As others have said, best so far.
    The tension throughout the reception...god damn.

    To be honest I feel like writing stupidity isn't all that different than writing intelligence.

    A character can feel dumb because its forced, or they can feel dumb because the writers clearly fail at writing them correctly. But Ser Criston I feel feels rather natural. He's not a guy for plots and schemes and navigating politicial courts. He's wrapped up in codes of honor, and feels like he's betraying the core of his being. He's a knight that's good at fighting things, and that's what Rhaenyra picked him for.

    If she had picked one of the more 'politicial' choices like her advisors urged her too, he likely would have been better at dealing with this situation.

    Clearly because you seem to have a very hard time understanding very basic common knowledge put together? So stop acting arrogant and admit you're lesser and need help, its okay.

    Still amazed this show came off the heels of the GOT season 8. Amazing episode.

    There were so many Red Wedding vibes I was just waiting for shit to happen, gotta say I didn't expect that end result.

    Yeah, I didn't mean dumb writing, just the guy was stupid. Behaviour was in character.

    I think his father is playing a very subtle and long game too. Who he reccomended for Rhaenyra to wed? Laenor Velaryon, who might not impregnate her (due to him being homosexual, and it seems to be a badly kept secret). And see how he subtly sends his very attractive son to rescue rhaenyra during the chaos of the wedding. Almost as if he wants her to trust him so he can become her guard (eventually getting her pregnant and having his blood sit on the iron throne)

    Different show runners make a big difference. All the elements to make good GOT in later seasons were there, its just D&D decided they didn't want to be in charge of a massive success anymore.

    Classic tale of a guy not being able to handle being rejected by a woman...

    Not sure where that's coming from, it's not like it was her that he beat up. It was the dude who was pretty much just mocking him about the situation and - by association - his vows and whatnot.

    Well, if you're inferring some plot that he and Alicent hatch later, then hey...I suppose it's also a classic tale of a woman being mad that her bestie left her out of the gossip.

    Someone once said: love is the death of duty. Seems to resonate very well with our crispy knight.

    Just want to know, so they didn't feast for 7 days before the wedding, it just happened right after the *event* ? The master of Coin will be happy they cut the costs!

    Well to be fair, she literally tells him that she envies normal girls and just wants to be able to marry however she wants when they are in the Kingswood.

    But I would agree he's not the brightest. He basically confided in Alicent having no idea what she would do with that information. He just got lucky or perhaps unlucky depending on how far she's willing to hang it over his head.
