  • Game of Thrones 5×2 Review: House of Black and White

    The second episode of the season was heavily focused on two of my favorite characters, Arya and Daenerys, who are both engaging in journeys of self-discovery, albeit in very different ways.  The way these two characters contrast with each other has been one of my favorite parts of the entire series, both in the books […]
