High Sparrow continued the build up for season five.
If you’re not up to date on the Game of Thrones TV show and like to avoid spoilers we suggest you don’t read any further.
The fourth episode is written by Dave Hill with Mark Mylod in the director’s chair for the second time this season. The episode is titled The Sons of the Harpy.
The official synopsis for The Sons of the Harpy reads:
[quote]The Faith Militant grow increasingly aggressive. Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Bronn (Jerome Flynn) head south. Ellaria (Indira Varma) and the Sand Snakes vow vengeance.[/quote]
Here’s the official preview video from HBO:
It looks like we’re in for plenty of death next episode as the preview opens up showing the Unsullied facing off against the Sons of the Harpy. Can Dany keep control of Meereen?
Next we see Ellaria Sand meeting with some of the Sand Snakes (the bastard daughters of Prince Oberyn Martell). She gives them the option to choose Doran Martell’s way of peace or her way of war. Trained in combat by their father we’re pretty sure they will be choosing war.
In King’s Landing it looks like there is trouble amongst the citizens and that there will be a decision for Tommen to make on how they are handled.
Elsewhere Cersei appears to have pursued an alliance with High Sparrow while her brother Jaime and Bronn are fighting their way to Dorne.
After three episodes of build up it looks like the action is finally starting to hot up.
Game of Thrones season five continues at 9/8c Sundays on HBO in the US and at 2am (simulcast) and 9pm Mondays on Sky Atlantic in the UK.
