game-of-thrones-ghosts-of-harrenhal-season-2-episode-5-daenerys-quorth-emilia-clarkeOh, this is a big one. There may be more information in this episode of "Game of Thrones" than any other so far since the beginning of the show. There are spoilers ahead, so be warned. The big event in "Ghost of Harrenhal" was a shocking death in the first five minutes of the show.

Renly ( Gethin Anthony) was murdered by Melisandre's ( Carice Van Houten) smoke baby that she created with Stannis. We'll refer to him as "Lil' Smokey" from now on. Lil' Smoky stabbed his uncle Renly right through the heart, causing Brienne ( Gwendoline Christie) and Catelyn ( Michelle Fairley) to flee and make a pact.

Arya ( Maisie Williams) finally has a champion and Marjaery ( Natalie Dormer) is on the run. She wants to be " the queen" though, so we'll definitely see her again. Jon ( Kit Harington) is off on his own journey beyond the wall and Theon ( Alfie Allen), poor lamb just can't get respect. He's got a plan though. Daenerys ( Emilia Clarke) has a brand new dress and a brand new suitor.

Check out our video review with myself and Dennis Tzeng from Think Hero and let us know what you think about "Ghost of Harrenhal."
