Game of Thrones rant (episode 2 of the latest season on HBO. Spoilers! You’ve been warned.)

Yara Greyjoy is, apparently, the worst naval captain to ever sail the seas. How in the hell does a bloody armada sneak up and destroy your entire fleet that easily? Honestly, the whole battle felt more like a plot device than anything else. I imagine the show runners sitting around trying to figure out what kind of bloodshed they could add to this episode and voila, let’s just destroy a fleet. Easy-peasy.

Speaking of inept, how is Jon Snow still so na├»ve? He’s going to meet Daenerys based on a single scribbled message. He no sooner threatens to kill Littlefinger if he touches Sansa than he’s off on what might be a wild goose chase, leaving Littlefinger alone with Sansa. Seriously?

I like the show, but mercy it can be aggravating at times.

Cheers,

Chris
