In Meereen, Daenerys has to decide how to deal with the former masters after the death of Ser Barristan Selmy and the injuries inflicted on Grey Worm. She decides to round up the heads of the 13 richest families in the city and introduce them to her dragons. Jorah Mormont and Tyrion Lannister approach the ancient city of Valyria and, after witnessing something quite incredible, they are set upon by the Stone Men, and Mormont does not escape unscathed. Sansa finally sees what has become of Theon, courtesy of Ramsay Bolton's jealous mistress. Ramsay is particularly cruel to Theon at a dinner, much to Roose Bolton's displeasure. At Castle Black, Jon Snow tries to convince Tormund Giantsbane to move his people south of the Wall and settle in lands that will be made available to them. Most of the men of the Watch object to the plan. Written by garykmcd

Another slow episode, but still solid

Kill the Boy isn't as excellent as I hoped much like the previous episode, but it's still solid. Yes, the plot progression is still too slow and hasn't been advanced further and not to mention the new characters haven't been given anything to do. Despite those issues, however, everything still turned out fine.

The performances are still good, the script, despite how the slow the plot has been so far, is still well-written, the music score is still great, the scenery is still gorgeous, the sets and costumes are still nice, the directing is crisp, and the editing is smooth. So, overall, another solid episode in spite of it's slow pacing. :)
