S10 // "GAME OF THRONES" SEASON 3 EPISODE 2 REVIEW....

//POR RIKI LEE// 9 ABRIL / 13.....

 ( IN FULL - ENGLISH )  "DARK WINGS, DARK WORDS":  A lot of jumping around this week. Everyone we didn't see last week appears, and some we saw last week come back for seconds.  While the zig - zagging isn't confusing thanks to the great job the show's done fleshing out the motivations of Brienne, Arya, Jon Snow and the like, it does feel a little scattered;  Some of the transitions make sense, particularly a nice match cut where Joffrey and Sansa are getting dressed and discussing ( or trying to in Joff's case )...

 The political machinations of various figures in the court regime and one in which we go from Catelyn Stark discussing Jon Snow and Jon Snow himself, freezing with Mance Rayder beyond the wall.  It's a clever bit of structure in an episode that needs some structure to tie it together...
 The episode didn't have a great deal of visual flourish, but what it did have was A VERY GOOD SWORD FIGHTING SCENE.  In some shows, where clashing steel is all about choreography more complex than the average ballroom dance, GOT is a show where the fighting looks real.  There's nothing particularly neat or pretty about it, no real spins or twirls or anything other than gritted teeth, the smash of steel shoulder on steel shoulder, sweat and strain and blood - the brutality of the episode captured in a creative, visceral way.  There was a lot of good tension in all of the Brienne and Jaime scenes, even when they're jousting verbally or walking through the woods, and that pairing of actors is probably my current favorite on the program after Tyrion and anyone else.  They're just a prisoner and a captive in the woods, and this episode did a great job capturing the necessary paranoia of transporting the most famous prisoner in Westeros and the incredible boredom of a very, very long journey on foot.

 Like the PREMIERE, this week's episode has put some very interesting wheels in motion for the power - hungry nobles and red - handed bandits of Westeros;  New characters aside, the development of some of the more familiar faces was a nice touch.  Sansa's mini - breakdown when confronted by the Tyrells was great work on her part, but the way Margaery manipulated Joffrey - and the way Cersei failed at the same task - is going to prove to be important for the season to come.  Cersei won't take this sort of manipulation lightly, 
particularly when she's not the b1tch behind it...Cool EP....Watch it below...WHILE IT LASTS.  Just click the ADS OUT and I think there´s one AD that has to play before the EP...Then again, you can click the link and go direct to the episode as well...
