This post is part of the Game of Thrones Spoiler Discussion series.

Another week, another Game of Thrones episode! This is Third Act’s weekly spoiler discussion post where we discuss the events this week’s Game of Thrones episode.

Spoilers Warning & Guidelines

Obviously, this will have spoilers from this week episode. However, we do have a few guidelines we’d like people to consider before posting:

  1. No spoilers from episodes that haven’t aired yet.
  2. No spoilers from the books, unless as a commentary about how the episode deferred from the book.

The goal of this weekly segment is a place for discussion on each episode and speculate on future episodes.

Game of Thrones Spoiler Discussion (Season 5, Episode 2)

Brienne of Tarth

Brienne, Brienne, Brienne, why must you be tortured so. She finally reaches the other Stark girl, Sansa, and she refuses her assistance. Does anyone care about oaths any more?

Now that Sansa Stark has finally joined the ‘Game’ she may use this at a later date and have Brienne as a card in her newly created deck.

Jaime Lannister

Still being insulted by his sister/lover Jaime has agreed to return his daughter/niece, Myrcella Baratheon, from the ‘evil’ clutches of the people of Dorne. He gets the help of Tyrion’s ex-bodyguard Bronn to help him on his mission.

Now, I have a theory, stay with me. Cersei claims there are only two versions of the necklace. However, wasn’t there one given to Joffery who in-turn gave it to Sansa Stark?

Game of Thrones Spoiler Discussion (Season 5, Episode 2)

Perhaps Cersei is manipulating Jaime to go to Dorne, or perhaps Little Finger is playing a bigger game as usual. Perhaps Little Finger took Sansa necklace and sent it to Cersei to atagnoise and cause another war for the Lannisters they can’t afford.

Doran Martell

Prince Doran Martell, brother to Oberyn Martell, seems to have a calmer nature then his sibling. After refusing to cause any harm to Cersei Lannister’s daughter will he be able to maintain as calm when blonde-haired Jaime Lannister arrives at his doorsteps?

Tyrion Lannister & Varys

From one box to another. This time on their path, with a pit-stop Volantis, to Mereen to meet with Daenerys Targaryn. This can’t happen faster in my eyes, perhaps at their stop at Volantis they’ll bump into Captain Friendzone Ser Jorah Mormont.

Cersei and Kevan Lannister

As Cersei takes the place as Hand of the King, without the title, like her father, Tywin Lannister, she appoints the council members with their new roles. Although many disgruntled, her uncle and brother to Tywin lanniseter was appointed Master of War.

Seeing as he is the General of the Lannister army, Cersei should really attempt to be a slight bit nicer to him. I feel this small scene between the two may have huge ramifications in the future.

Game of Thrones Spoiler Discussion (Season 5, Episode 2)

Daenerys Targaryn

Quite a few issues with justice for poor Daenerys in this episode. By trying to be a fair ruler she has caused disarray of the masses.

Complex problems like these need a stronger council, perhaps there is a vacancy for an Imp and an Eunuch.

Game of Thrones Spoiler Discussion (Season 5, Episode 2)

Jon ‘almost Stark’ Snow

We said last week that some form of reaction was required from Stannis, however he seemed to let him off with it. Jon Snow is increasingly become an important character and the others are noticing.

Only he could unite Stannis’ army, the Wildlings and the Knights Watch. My only issue is, what would convince them all to take back the north?

Game of Thrones Spoiler Discussion (Season 5, Episode 2)

Arya Stark

She has made it to Bravos and she has made it to the House of Black and White. After being messed around, she also finally meets up again with Jaqen H’ghar.

Pretty much, she walks through a door in this episode.

Game of Thrones Spoiler Discussion (Season 5, Episode 2)

Drogon

He has returned! Kind of… The biggest of the three Dragons has returned to see Daenerys only to then fly away again. Gosh, dragons can be so confusing! In order for Daenerys to gain control of her dragons getting Drogon on her side would help a great deal.

That’s it for this week, what did you think of the episode? What do you think of my Cersei theory?
