While the illusion of choice is somewhat waning now in Telltale Games, Game of Thrones: Episode Five – A Nest of Vipers proves that they can still tell a good story and kick you in the gut. More importantly, they can create a game that can stand tall in the world of Game of Thrones. Especially […]

‘Game of Thrones 5×10: Mother’s Mercy’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“…if I might beg just one drop of the Mother’s mercy.” For all that the High Sparrow likes to talk about the laws of gods and men, the truth is that no life in Westeros or the wider world of which it is a part is lived within an ordered set of rules. Whatever the […]

‘Game of Thrones 5×09: The Dance of Dragons’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Sometimes a person has to choose. Sometimes the world forces his hand.” We do so much because we feel it is impossible to do otherwise. Straying from destiny’s path, we fear we’ll show the world where to find the gaps in our armor. Spare your daughter and the throne slips through your fingers. Give up […]

‘Game of Thrones 5×08: Hardhome’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“I’ve seen the army of the dead.” Me too, Sam. Holy hell. ‘Hardhome,’ written by showrunners Benioff and Weiss and directed by Miguel Sapochnik, could easily coast on the strength of its stupendous final quarter, but instead it delivers a melancholic and anxiety-producing hour of television that doesn’t so much scale into insanity as it does […]

‘Game of Thrones 5×07: The Gift’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Have you ever sowed the field, Lady Olenna?  Have you ever reaped the grain?” Everybody in ‘The Gift” is trying to lend a helping hand, but from the irascible Olenna to the desperate ser Jorah they’re all operating with one eye squeezed shut against the unpleasant realities of their world. As Myrcella informs her uncle/father Jaime […]

‘Game of Thrones 5×06: Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“What do we do with the bodies after we clean them?” Two people are bathed in the course of ‘Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken.’  One is a corpse being laid to rest in the House of Black and White while the other is Sansa Stark, betrothed of Ramsay Bolton.  Arya discovers that the bodies of those who […]

‘Game of Thrones 5×05: Kill the Boy’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Every time you wear something you made, you can remember her.” Myranda’s phony words of comfort to Sansa pluck uncomfortably at something every human struggles to reconcile within themselves.  What claim do the dead have on us, and is it more important to honor their memory than it is to work toward a better future?

‘Game of Thrones 5×04: Sons of the Harpy’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“I could say that our minds are temples to the Seven and should be kept pure, but the truth is, I don’t like the taste.” Laws are what we make of them.  In the High Sparrow’s self-deprecating explanation as to why he doesn’t drink wine is a deeper, darker truth: we obey laws for our […]

‘Game of Thrones 5×03: High Sparrow’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“It’s only a name.  Quite an easy burden to bear.” Let’s start with a temple.  Its priests have no names, its god has no prayers, and the house jam is Mandel and Altman’s “Suicide Is Painless” on endless repeat.  The High Sparrow is a paranoid, spine-tingling, and grotesquely enjoyable episode of television in which identities […]

‘Game of Thrones 5×02: The House of Black and White’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Now matter how many times you call her “mhysa,” she is nobody’s mother.” Being a woman in Westeros is a raw deal.  Whether you’re a lowly wildling or a queen you’re going to live under the constant threat of abuse, war, kidnapping, and worse.  No matter how high women climb, no matter how hard they […]

‘Game of Thrones 5×01: The Wars To Come’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“The future is shit, just like the past.” Tyrion Lannister punctuates his brief thesis on the value of life by bending over to vomit.  In an episode that begins with a young Cersei slogging through what looks like a mixture of mud and offal and ends with a man being burned alive after leading his […]
