  3. How would you rate episode 309?

    10/10 They absolutely nailed this episode. It was packed with many emotional scenes.The whole Red Wedding, but also Jon leaving Ygritte and the moment Bran and Rickon split up. Such a heavy episode. Well worth the wait.
  4. How would you rate episode 308?

    A vast improvement over the last two. The wedding scene and reception were perfect. We finally got to see Sam in action and Dany was awesome as usual in her scenes. Even the additions with Melisandre and Gendry were interesting. A contender for best episode with 4 and 5. I give it a 10. Next week is sure going to be a blast.
  5. How would you rate episode 306?

    A weak episode compared to the previous ones but it still had a few good scenes, probably a 6 for me. Good: -Theon torture scene -Jon scaling the wall -Olenna and Tywin -Jaime and Brienne with Roose -The Freys with Robb Bad: -Bran's arc was dull -Sam and Gilly at the campfire (although hopefully its a set up for the encounter with the White Walker) -Melisandre taking Gendry -Sansa and Loras
  6. How would you rate episode 305?

    Great episode all around. The duel between Beric and Sandor was epic. Lots of awesome book moments.Probably a 10 for me. Loved the scene between Tywin, Tyrion and Cersei.
  7. How would you rate episode 301?

    A very strong episode. Either an 8 or a 9 The Tyrion/Tywin scene was great. Mance made his debut and we got to see the first giant Astapor is looking promising. Hopefully Dany's scenes will be much better than the Qarth ones.
  8. How would you rate episode 210?

    I'd give it an 8. The Good -The scene with Joffrey in the throne room was spot on, though it would have been nice to see Stannis subjects proclaiming Joffrey false. -Theon's scenes and the burning of Winterfell was also well done. -I'm glad they included the part where Jaime and Brienne finding the hanging corpses. - I don't see why they changed the Jon and Qhorin scene from the book, but I guess it works either way. The part where they see the camp down in the valley was epic. -Robb/Talissa (Yeah I'm one of those who like that relationship) -Jaqen giving the coin and Valar Morghulis - The ending with the three blasts leading to the Others approach. Great buildup for the next season The Bad -Dany's scenes (I disliked the HOTU) -Xaro and Doreah being locked up? Why did they get rid of the handmaidens? -Jaqen scene (A con as well, since we didnt get to see Arya's escape from Harrenhal) -Stannis choking Mel Dany's storyline was the main problem this season. There wasn't a single scene I really enjoyed. A shame really since her scenes were great in season 1. Other then that I didn't really have an issue with any other arc.

    By the Old Gods and the New, a perfect 10! The buildup to the battle was epic, with Stannis fleet slowwly creeping its way through the water with the fog looming over them.The wildfire exploding was just out of this world. We finally got the Rains of Castamere. Cersei is acting like her old psycho self. Tyrion delivered an amazing speech. Pretty much everything. Valar Morghulis!!!
  10. How would you rate episode 208?

    One of the strongest episodes this season. All scenes were rather well exexcuted and there wasn't a single one that irked me. Theon/Yara had their strongest moment yet I was sceptical about Jon's scene, but I think its now back on track with Qhorin pushing him down. Jaime's escape hapenned earlier then expected , but the scene was well executed. The absence of Cleos isn't an issue at all since he gets killed later on. Talissa provided much needed information about the free Cities Cersei/Tyrion scene was fantastic with cersei being back to her old self. Varys makes a welcome return I'm not sure how Arya's story will play out, but I'm hoping that we'll still see the takeover of Harrenhal next episode. As for those afraid about the lack of Jaqen here's a preview of ep 10 from IGN. "As Theon stirs his men to action, Luwin offers some final advice. Brienne silences Jaime; Arya receives a gift from Jaqen; Dany goes to a strange place; and Jon proves himself to Qhorin." So I think her escape from Harrenhal won't happen until the end, and maybe we'll get to see her stab the guard before making her escape with Gendry and Hot Pie.
  11. How would you rate episode 207?

    I'd give it an 8 or a 9. A very solid episode as usual, despite some scenes extending for far too long like the Jon/Ygritte one and the Dany one. Here's hoping we still see the Halfhand again.
  12. How would you rate episode 205?

    A solid 9, this was my favorite episode this season. A lot less filler and more focus on covering plotlines. Arya and Tyrion were flawless as usual. The addition of the Margaery and Petyr scene was great. All actors were great. How will they deal with the lack of Jojen and Meera? I'm hoping they'll still show up later. It would be boring having Bran journey up north with Hodor and his direwolf alone. Anyone else notice the lack of the Walder Frey twins?
  13. How would you rate episode 201?

    I give it a solid 8. A strong opening, that played out quite a bit differently than I expected .As far as new cast members go, I'm really satisfied with, Davos, Stannis and Melisandre but not so much with Craster. He doesn't really look like a wildling, far too clean. I was hoping to see a bit more of Cressen as well. I really liked how they showed the comet being viewed by different characters. Looking forward to this season.
