Review: Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 2 “Stormborn”

Mark Mylod brings Mad Max: Fury Road to ‘Game of Thrones’ with a high-octane, adrenaline pumping final sea battle that provides stellar cinematography and mesmerising character points, especially in the ramifications for Theon. Yet beyond the scope that this show typically delivers, Mylod also examined the intimacy of relationships and the choices we make for our survival, and to help others. It combines with truly excellent writing from Bryan Cogman to deliver stunning development for Danerys and Samwell, whose story with Jorah is the only plot so far without any true purpose or long-term objective in terms of narrative. Furthermore, the show finally begins to actually present its end-game in a distinct manner, as all sides are spread-headed towards war, again bolstered by the writing harnessing political aspirations. 9.5/10
