Did You Know?


During Cersei's confession with the High Sparrow, he dismisses the charges that her children were not fathered by King Robert and are actually the products of incest with Jaime. In the novel, the High Sparrow's decision was explained in more detail, that if Cersei's children were determined to be bastards it would make Stannis Baratheon the rightful claimant to the Iron Throne, who is no longer a follower of the Faith of the Seven but of the Lord of Light, which the High Sparrow considers a false faith to a red demon.

When Theon kills Myranda and he and Sansa escape Winterfell, Sansa's gloves disappear in several shots only for them to appear again seconds later, although it is a fast-paced scene with no intervals. See more »


Jaime Lannister: We don't choose who we love. It just... well... it's beyond our control. I sound like an idiot.
Myrcella Baratheon: No, you don't.
Jaime Lannister: What I'm trying to say, what I'm trying and failing to say...
Myrcella Baratheon: I know what you're trying to say.
Jaime Lannister: No, I'm afraid you don't.
Myrcella Baratheon: I do.
[Myrcella takes Jaime's hand]
Myrcella Baratheon: I know. About you and mother. I think a part of me always knew. And I'm glad. I'm glad that you're my father.
[they embrace each other]

Bloody and Violent Episode
15 June 2015 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Stannis Baratheon finds that his wife has committed suicide and Melisandre leaves the group. Then he marches to Winterfell, but his army is surprised by the Bolton's men. Meanwhile Theon helps Sansa and they try to flee from Winterfell. Arya disguises to kill Meryn Trant and Jaqen H'ghar tells that she is not ready yet. Daenerys is missing with Dragon and Daario and Jorah ride together to find her. Meanwhile she is surrounded by a group of riders. Myrcella is kissed by Ellaria before leaving Dome with Jaime. Cersei confesses her sins to the High Sparrow and is humiliated while returning to the castle. Sam asks Jon Snow to be the next maester at the Oldtown. Then Olly tells Jon that his uncle Benjen is alive and waiting for him on the yard and Jon has a surprise.

"Mother's Mercy" is a bloody and violent episode of Game of Thrones. Stannis sees his world falling apart after the murder of his own daughter. I look forward to see the fate of Melisandre when Davos discovers what she did to Shireen. Theon finally reacts and helps Sansa. The segment with Arya is boring and pointless. The segment with Daenerys is only reasonable. The fate of Myrcella was predictable after the kiss of Ellaria. The humiliation of Cersei is the best moment of this show, and Lena Headey has an amazing performance. I am looking forward to see her revenge. The betrayal of the Night Watch is the most impressive moment of this show. My vote is nine.
