This season is terrific but also totally uninteresting. How is such a thing possible? The production is THAT damn good. Honestly the only interesting character arcs to me are revolving around the remaining Stark children (Jon included). Everyone else just seems like they're on the road to some randomly tragic end.
The execution scene with Jon was done unbelievably well. I'm hoping that Stannis will be pivotal in a defense against the White Walkers seeing as the Lord of Light is their natural enemy. Also want to see if Sansa is capable of destroying the Bolton's politically if possible. She's exhibited some of the greatest willpower among the Starks to survive for so long so I'd be curious if she's ever going to snap and start handing out some comeuppance. I was getting choked up when Arya was about to toss Needle so thank the light they didn't go that far. I wonder how A Man even ended up as a prisoner in King's Landing if he's got all these crazy 2nd level spells.
Favorite characters so far are probably Tyrion and Sir Davos as always. I'm sort of digging this chainless maester who's working for Cersei. He's super creepy and dark and up to no good.
