The first 10 minutes of the aftershow for s5e8 was really good. But don't watch until after the episode.
What happened at the end is foreshadowing for the events that happen in book 6, Babylon's Ashes, which is the basis for season 6, as well as setting up the conflict arc that is the basis of books 7-9. The payoff (and explanation) will come.
I quite liked it and I'm very happy with the show for respecting its viewers' intelligence enough to portray Naomi's struggle in the latter episodes without a reassuring blanket of exposition. The viewer may not come up with a complete explanation or correctly guess the progression, but damn I'm glad they let us have the fun of trying! Two thumbs way up for Season 5.
