Negotiations, long discussions, training, and an action sequence that I’m guessing had a purpose but I honestly don’t even remember what that particular group were trying to achieve. I’m thinking on rewatch it will probably make sense but on a week to week basis there are just too many names and too many different intrigues to keep them all straight. As an episode, this was kind of a nothing. It didn’t do anything particularly interesting or anything particularly bad. There was just a lot of shuffling characters from where they were to where they are going to need to be for the next round of conflicts.
