I gave ep 7 a 9...notice most people so far gave it an 8. I'm not usually easy to please, so wonder why an 8 for tonight episode?

Plenty of time at The Wall, which made the man watching with me very happy -- those are his fav scenes. Lord Baelish was brilliantly sinister as always and managed to surprise in the last few frames, even though I knew what to expect from him. The actor is simply brilliant in that role..fits him like a glove. As Drogo gave his Dothraki campaign speech we uttered "Vote for Me!" :rolleyes:

I gave it a 9 also. I liked it more than the previous episode. I thought it kept the tension of what was happening and about to happen and loved the scene between Ned and Robert at the end. I will miss Mark Addy. I thought Drogo's scene was very well done, and appreciate Momoa's effort to learn Dothraki so that it sounds totally believable.

My opinions are the opposite...I absolutely loved Drogo in this episode, but am dislike Aiden Gillen more and more with every episode. Littlefinger is probably the biggest disappointment of the series for me. He's just flat and uninspired.

I gave this episode a 7.5, leaning towards 7 though. I thought it was one of the weaker episodes so far (I actually gave 5 and 6 both 10/10). There were some high points for me, such as Jaime/Tywin, Drogo being a badass, Jorah and Dany, and hearing the NW oath...but everything else with average or a bit below the standards this series has set for itself. Robert's death in particular was way too emotioneless, and the Ros/<whore b> scene with LF was just dumb. I did appreciate Osha's scene with Luwin and Theon though.

10/10

Best episode to date for me. Night's watch vows and Drogo's speech were particular highlights.

Gave it an 8. Would have been a 9 if not for the awful LF-porn scene.

I give it a 6...the worst episode to date.

The porn scene was really off putting and drawn out to the extreme...I don't mind throwing in some sex and nudity but ~5 minutes of pretty hardcore girl on girl sex is way over the top. Not to mention it totally overshadowed the importance of what Littlefinger was saying.

Tywin is a disappointment in his first appearance, and Robert's death was poorly done in my opinion. I don't think Ned even shed a tear or gave any indication that he was incredibly upset at the passing of his best friend. Thankfully the episode ended on an upswing as the final throne room scene was done well. I also enjoyed the Dothraki scenes (for once) and I think Khal Drogo finally stepped up and gave an excellent performance.

All in all, I hope the next episode is better and that the hardcore porn doesn't reappear.

People seem to be pretty split. I for one, loved it. The LF porn scene was most likely done for the sex bit, but, i could see past it. LF was talking and the actions of the girls was mirroring what he was doing to the realm. Something fake that seems... good.

But don't get me wrong, i TOTALLY understand why some would find it off putting and distracting, I'm just not one of them.

SOOO happy Jon is back, I love that man. Sam is brilliant.

Drogo was simply awesome, you could see how much anger he felt and the almost hysteric sound of his voice, it was just awesome.

Wish they'd put episode 8 up early :D

That scene took it from an 11 to a 10 in my book. I thought it was otherwise just about perfect.

I gave it a 10, easily my favorite episode of the series so far. I did think the brothel scene was a bit over the top, but I still enjoyed Littlefinger's long speech, and I didn't think it was out of character for him either. Loved Charles Dance as Tywin, can't wait to see him interact with Tyrion, probably next week. Also enjoyed the Theon/Osha talk, and I really liked Maester Luwin's line "are the two mutually exclusive in your expereince?". The throne room scene at the end was probably my favorite scene in teh whole series up to this point. It really ratcheted up the tension and was practically identical to the scene in the book. My only complaint was Robert's death scene; I wish they showed Ned more

upset at his friend's passing and kept Robert's line about being with Lyanna.

One of the best ones so far, a solid 10 if they had cut the Roz scene, actually, "play with her ass" should deduct two points but I gave it a 9 regardless. :)

This. It may seem like it was just simple porn, and in a way it was, but at the same time it was a fantastic visual of LF's actions and excellent foreshadowing.

I loved the episode. Tywin's introduction was great, in my opinion, and it was good to see more Jon. Not quite sure why they trimmed the Oath, but I didn't notice it while watching, so obviously not a bother. Great to get more from Drogo besides grunting and sex, too.

My one complaint would be that there was no Arya, Tyrion, or much Varys. If only each episode was two hours long!

Another solid 8 from me. Agree with others that the porn is just way too over the top, drawn out, and distracting. And also agree Robert's death was lacking resonance (and man am I going to miss Mark Addy, he was just fantastic from start to finish). Did love the mournful sound of the bells of Baelor in the background though.

One thing that seemed odd to me was Littlefinger actually holding a knife to Ned's throat. Was that really in the book? Seemed to out of character for me, Littlefinger is a guy who makes his living behind the scenes and disguising his loyalties. He schemes, but he's hands off when it comes to fighting. I think he'd feel that was not only beneath him but not wise to stick his neck out like that for all to see.

Well another very good episode overall that just missed the mark in a few places to keep it from touching me deeply. Missing Arya and Tyrion already :(

Yes it was ;)

As his men died around him, Littlefinger slid Ned’s dagger from its sheath and shoved it up under his chin. His smile was apologetic. "I did warn you not to trust me, you know."

8

Very enjoyable - whole episode went down pretty much as I expected. Only reason I can't give a 9-10 is for lack of innovation/surprise.

Last week I gave a 9. This week got an 8 purely on the basis of the littlefinger exposition / lesbian sex scene. Way way over the top.

I gave it a 7 out of 10. I think the scene in the brothel was a unworthy of GRRM:s writing. Done in some/any other way, perhaps, and still including the Littlefinger speech, the episode might have gotten 8 out of 10, but not now. Not ever.

And why is Lord Tywin butchering an animal in his pavilion? Shouldn't some of his servants be doing just that? Nice hard acting, though, by Charles Dance. I'm glad Tywin Lannister isn't my father.

Really, because the GRRM I remembers has lots and lots of similar sex scenes. ;)

Many hunters are very peculiar about their prey. And the symbolism was very nice.

Flatout 10 for me by the way, despite the clumsy sexposition scene (which - as said - is quite in GRRM's spirit).

I gave this episode a 9.

Mark Addy was brilliant as Robert, his final scene really stole the show for me. There is so much depth to the friendship between Eddard and Robert and I got it in that scene. It was excellent. I enjoyed his interaction with Joff too, which was all too rare in the book. Addy's performance had such a strong sense of regret to it.

Also outstanding was the writing for Cersei, Headey has impressed me in nearly every scene and this week was no different. The confrontation in the Gods Wood was beautifully done, she really captured the Cersei from the novels in that moment. As well as the scene in the Throne room, which was wonderfully executed, that is until it came to the action section where the whole thing went a bit flat.

Props too to the actors behind Ser Barristan and Renly, excellent work in their scenes.

The downside for me in this episode was the scenes set at the Wall - particularly the Night's Watch vows. I found them to be flat and very monotone, when reading the books I found the vows stirring and inspiring, though there was none of that here.
