"The show’s previously been careful to maintain a heterogeneous look for most of the cultures Daenerys encounters in her travels through the eastern continent of Essos, so the uniformly brown skin tone of the freed slaves worshipping the blondest possible savior figure was surprising and disconcerting – doubly so since, in the books, much is made of just how many different kinds of people had been forced into slavery by Yunkai and then freed by Dany when she took the city. This uncomfortable contrast kneecapped what could otherwise have been the most purely uplifting and cathartic moment in the series so far. Plus it gave the episode its title and was, you know, the final shot of the season – a rough one to go out on."

Another thing that bothered me.
I think more than anything it can be chalked up to the location of filming (Morocco) and primarily using locals as extras.
But still, not great.
I have some confusing feelings on Game of Thrones right now.
I mean I love it and I loved the episode and I loved the season but also it was problematic. I have reservations about my love for it.
And I think that I might have preferred to wait an extra year and get a 20 episode season 3 covering the whole third book. Because I’m not totally sure it worked this way.
