People watch "Game of Thrones" for different reasons. If you're a fifteen-year-old boy, you probably watch for the gratuitous nudity. But if you ask me, the real stars of the show aren't Khaleesi's breasts, they're the exotic weapons that we meet in every episode.
I am probably oversimplifying, but Dany just wants to win back her kingdom at any cost, Catelyn's actions were all motivated by family, Cersei wants the crown, many of Sansa's earlier decisions are based on infatuation, Arya is just plain wild.
This episode had a recurring theme dear to my heart: Women being awesome. And by "awesome" I don't just mean brave and heroic, though that's here to some degree, too. I mean interesting, and forging independent paths for themselves.
Was it worth the wait? That is likely the most burning question facing readers of George R. R. Martin's mammoth Song of Ice and Fire series regarding its fifth and latest installment, A Dance with Dragons.
