GAME OF THRONES, KILLING EVE, and AMERICAN IDOL

Let’s talk about Sunday night’s TV!

AMERICAN IDOL: It’s incredible that this many seasons into various singing competitions and contestants still haven’t learned there’s a huge difference between liking a song and it being the right song for your voice/a competition. “The Middle” is an incredible song, one I will stop at every single time it pops up on the radio, but yikes. Not right here, and not right for Evelyn.

That being said, Walker’s version of “Climb Ev’ry Mountain” was a real surprise and pretty great.

KILLING EVE: It was fascinating to see Villanelle, so out of her element and so without the upper hand for most of the episode. It didn’t last, but it was arguably the most human we’ve seen her.

GAME OF THRONES: Sansa’s reaction to Dany was incredible. And valid, frankly.

I rewatched part of season 1 before the new season kicked off, so seeing all the reunions with the Stark kids was really emotional. And holy heck, Arya respects Sansa! (She had reason to doubt her before, to be clear.) I’m so glad Jon knows the truth about his parentage—though I loved his brutal immediate reaction of defending Ned’s honor—because Dany…should not be leading. Yikes. Her cruelty to Sam was depressing and vindictive.

But, uh, Jon knows the truth know. I’m very curious to see what he does know that he knows he is the rightful leader…and enough people have expressed caution about Dany. (Also, dear God, I hope he breaks off their relationship now he knows they’re related.)

I loved the episode ending with Jaime seeing Bran…whom he last saw in the pilot, when he Jaime pushed Bran off a tower (with the intention of killing him) after the youngster spotted him mid-tryst with Cersei. Jaime is a very different man now, but it doesn’t change his past actions. But it was a great full-circle moment for the series.

In many ways, I was really surprised by how slow the episode was. I enjoyed getting to dig into the reunions, but given how few hours are left, I expected things to be bonkers bloody/traumatic from the get-go. But this may have actually been the crueler twist: get a bit of time seeing these people fairly happy and reunited, only for the show to start the bloodshed shortly after.
