    The ultimate winner of episode 5 was Sansa. Everyone she hated in kings landing died, and everything she expected about Daenerys was proven right.

  • kdkseven  (May 17, 2019)

    +Shane Hurst - Well that's a bit dramatic. And not at all true.

  • Jack Burton  (May 13, 2019)

    Daenerys should've eaten a Snickers Bar. She not herself when she's hungry.

  • Madcat4301  (May 17, 2019)

    Was her Starbucks latte poisoned too? Most likely.

  • Chris Fontaine  (May 17, 2019)


  • Jen S  (May 13, 2019)

    I just realized that Varys was likely trying to have Daenerys poisoned. "We'll try again at supper" 😳😳 went right over my head lol

  • Tesla  (May 18, 2019)

    RG it would've been much much better if they went down the route you suggested, what about the Night king? Share your thoughts on how they could've closed that better my friend

  • Tesla  (May 18, 2019)

    RG someone hire this man!

  • JoeTheLion60  (May 13, 2019)

    Episode 4 - highly accurate no-scope 3/3 arrow dragon shootingEpisode 5 - 1,000 Stevie Wonders man the Scorpions

  • jon b  (1 day ago)

    episode 4 , Range suitable for the speed the turrets can track , unaware non maneuvering target. Episode 5 , close range actively maneuvering target shrug, its a story not a historical documentary , no worse than the stormtrooper aim of the first 3 star wars for sure.

  • Andy B  (May 18, 2019)

    Well they were blinded by the sun so the Stevie Wonder joke is fitting.

  • Furious One  (May 13, 2019)

    I'd buy the books on tape if you narrated.

  • Christopher Snow  (May 18, 2019)

    +Jeff MabryA Song of Fire and Ice narrator, if it's the same guy, needed to stop making Tyrion's voice so fucking shrill. I had to take a refund on it, I just couldn't stand having that sound in my ears.

  • Randon Ceccoli  (May 17, 2019)

    The classic narrarator sounds like hes on the final sentence of a fillibuster.. And hammered. Hate that guys voice, love this guys.

  • TxBuzzkill  (May 13, 2019)

    5:20 "The Golden Co. was not very effective" heh heh heh. Somebody posted on another board, "Sam Tarley has more kills than The Golden Co."

  • Jason Jensen  (May 16, 2019)

    +Shane Walta Could be they want to make a point about the Golden Company being funded by The Iron Bank who chose to go against the Dragon Queen, which makes them a target going forward, and the Iron Bank has been a key player throughout the series, exposing how the leaders of Commerce has zero concern for anything but profit as an Institutional force on the lives of regular people, right down to what we see happening in the streets as people are displaced through wars and the will of the Wealthy Few. ...

  • Dreymon Green  (May 16, 2019)

    TxBuzzkill thank you instead of stealing the joke and reposting it you admit it’s not yours but still shared it with us. Most people would’ve just posted it as their own to get maximum likes

  • aboleyn24  (May 15, 2019)

    "Cersei tiptoes away" is one of the funniest things I've ever heard. Perfection.

  • Jason Jensen  (May 16, 2019)

    I'd have gone with slinks off.

  • YouSurf 2  (May 13, 2019)

    4 words.... JORAH would NOT approve.

  • YouSurf  (May 17, 2019)

    +Jori Bremer HE SURE WAS Jori... but part of me makes me think she was just biding her time and holding back when Jorah was doing such mentoring, but planned for more devastation... It is really funny to read online how many DANY apologists there are. In reality, it is truly alarming that so many can be so blind.

  • YouSurf  (May 17, 2019)

    +Fortune Mak3r Really... WE ALL HAVE POTENTIAL to go whack and KILL PEOPLE, regardless of one, two or 700,000 people... innocent people??? WTF. You do realize that what you are saying is WE ARE ALL PSYCHOPATHS... OMG. WOW. PS: I do not have such violent potential.. More well grounded and such. WOW.

  • A Cassandro  (May 13, 2019)

    In a world where the opinions on this episode are either "omg I was so shocked!" or "this is the worst ending everrr!" You are the voice of reason. The light in the darkness. Thank you.

  • Gina O  (May 13, 2019)

    Arya and the Hounds farewell was my favourite part of the episode. When he put his hand on the back of her head and looks in her eyes, she looked 10 years younger: it was tiny season 1 Arya looking up with her huge eyes. And it was like so much of her hardening up was undone. It was so sweet.

  • WonderWeezul  (4 days ago)

    +theronstang possibly... lots of things are possible, but it will never sit well due to it being so poorly executed and the writing Arya kills NK because it "felt right" to the writers rather than Jon.Arya then doesnt want to kill one of the first names on her list when she is literally a few rooms away because the writers wanted to have a favourite character stumbling through the chaotic streets.D&D have confessed their own reasons have caused these near unanimously disappointing scenes ...

  • theronstang  (4 days ago)

    +WonderWeezul I don't think the Hound would have stopped her if the castle was falling all over around them. That's not what they expected. Once it was realized that it was coming down, that changed things.
