GAME OF THRONES: SEASON 5, EPISODE 4
Winter is coming. All men must die. And Game of Thrones is back! Stay tuned each week as we unpack Sunday’s episodes through masterpieces.
A queen empowers the militant faithful, identified by star-branded foreheads, part of a ritualistic scarification. Impurities of all sorts are cleansed in public spaces, and restraint privileged. A fiery priestess seduces a young leader, while elsewhere quiet conversations in a crypt echo key backstory. Sand snakes whip themselves up in preparation for vengeance, while on a nearby beach knights on foot go at it with soldiers on horseback. A bloodbath between eunuchs and masked men rounds out a good-but-not-so-feel-good episode.
This week’s wildcard image comes from the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
