  1. How would you rate episode 403?

    This was a great episode, really one of my favorites which doesn't included anything HUGE. However, the completely bungled direction of the Jaime/Cersei scene is problem and that brought it down to an 8.

    They clearly won't follow Martin's poorly chosen path for book 4. They have said Season 3 is half of book 3, I expect (with a bit of it already having happened) that book 4 will not be given it's own season and we'll see parts of it in season 4 (with the rest of book 3) and season 5 (with book 5)

    She has a HUGE part in book 3.

    They have made it very clear the Tully's are involved (though they have not been seen). The first report of the War was Ned's day on the throne where they dumped the fish in the throne room. I think it was LF who said that was Catelyn's house sigil. Many times, you've heard Tywin talking about attack the Riverlands. I posted a list of new characters confirmed by D&D (for season 3), Blackfish and Edmure were on the list.

    Catelyn is taking a leap of faith on Tyrion's honor. Whether Jaime walks into KL with Brienne (and in chains) or on his own power, all that matters is whether Tyrion will honor the deal. (This all turns out moot, but that doesn't matter here). I've always assumed she informed Tyrion of this acceptance of his trade offer, to not do so would be insanity considering the dangerous terrain Jaime is about to cross. She would want Lannister patrols lout looking for him as they approach KL. A prisoner exchange can't work without both parties cooperating.

    Why would he kill her? She was taking him where he wanted to go and having her there made his chances better of arriving there in one piece. (whoops) They both know they are in a dangerous place, and two swords are better than one (or 3 vs 2 in the books). I realize this is how the book did it, it made no sense to me there too. (Jaime turning on her DOES make sense in terms that she wasn't letting him free and thus (in his mind) killing her meant his chances increase of survival since he could then defend himself)

    Not to specifically pick you out for this, but your post reminded me of this. Why is Jaime tied up? (he is in the books here too) If he gets "free" where is he going to go? They both want him to get to King's Landing and the chances of that are improved if they can both fight and defend themselves. This will lead to their fight in the river, but it made no sense to me in the books and seeing it makes it seem even less sensible.

    Tell that to Craster.

    Rewatch: It's snow in the Dany's wrecked Iron Throne scene, there are icicles and the set designer talked about on the production HBO Go. Jorah's look to Dany when he hands her XXD's key is priceless. 'I told you so", and then she concedes the point to him in the next scene with the buying a boat comment. Excellent. The second Other is well armored (though not in ice armor). Almost all the wights are wildlings and crows. A few random ones mixed in. Jaquan calls her Arya Stark as he leaves, was that in the books also, it's a good period for their relationship. On PP's death, the man is immolated in fire by three dragons for a LONG time. Sheesh, Khal Drogo wouldn't have survived that. Ygritte is MUCh more appealing when she isn't being the generic spitfire archetype. I hope they keep her that way. She was so annoying in her earlier episodes. (much like the book character). The episode was 63 minutes!

    This is my complaint. Arya is a VERY valuable peice in the Game of Thrones. Once LF found out Tywin did not know who he had, I can't fathom him not making some sort of plan to get control of her before he left Harrenhall. It's like seeing a $100 bill across the street and assuming it will still be there when you walk back. It seems to me like sloppy writing, where they though "It would be great to add some drama to scene with Tywin and LF and have him notice Arya", but never then went forward and altered the outline for future episodes to deal with it.

    Who do you think they are? The show certainly wants us to think they are Bolton's men.

    So the wight on the horse is a white walker. Got it. (kidding!)

    http://tvline.com/2012/06/04/ratings-game-of-thrones-season-2-finale/ Great ratings numbers, up 38% from last year's finale.

    Those saying the White Walkers look different, please post links to pics which show this. I am looking at images from the one last season with the head, the one that adopted Craster Jr (yes I am stealing that) and the one on the horse. They look pretty much the same to me, considering they were all in the dark previously. I am still annoyed they just dropped the fact that LF knew where Arya was.

    Well aware, without the proper context is was just a closeup of a horse taking a dump. In the books it was a statement about Tywin. These are what I call HBO Moments. Look at us! AMC may have matched our compelling, intelligent drama, but they don't show you kings getting hummer with slurpy sounds. They don't show you horses crapping and getting beheaded! Watch us instead! The show is better than that. (or not good enough to get the context set first). I forgot in my initial reactions rewrite: Jaime/Brienne: Scene was fine, but served no purpose here. This is time that should have been given to Catelyn, Quorin or a vision of Rhaegar and Robert fighting. Dany: I really enjoyed these scenes. I have no idea why they chained her up. Why not just lock her in the room where she can visit these dreams? It just seemed forced to get the dramatic image of the dragons breathing past her. Minro complaint though, great scenes otherwise. To add my voice, we have clearly seen the White Walkers (poorly) twice before. I found their appearance pretty awesome and fine with what we've seen before.
