Thank you GRRM for the scene with The Hound and Bronn to set the tone for the fighting men of the episode.

I believe George wrote this episode.

Edit: oops. Didn't catch the insult to the HBO staff writers in my first read. Yes, it was a great ep.

If I wasn't so intent on reading The Winds of Winter and a Dream of Spring sometime in the next 10 years I'd lobby to have him write every episode.

If Game of Thrones picks up an Emmy nomination for Best Writing for this season, I hope it's this episode.

Please give GRRM and Lena Headey their Emmys now. They deserve them. It is known.

And Dinklage!

GRRM should write every episode of every tv show, ever

All I can say is WOW. It was unreal, GRRM needs to be cloned so he can write the episodes and the books simultaniously.

The Rains of Castamere was awesome and even moreso in the credits.

Tyrion alluding to a wedding being the worst thing in life. Terrific.

Varys talking about being cut and the dark arts. Nice touch.

Everyone was pitch perfect- Tyrion, Cersei, Bronn, Sandor, Sansa, Stannis, Davos and no BS in the other parts of Westeros and Essos despite the credits map.

Totally blown away.

GRRM did write a brilliant episode. However, I gotta hand it to D&D for all that they have done to take this from book to screen and they have done a fantastic job working the source material in with the various constraints. I don't think enough people give them the credit they deserve and that's a shame.

Absolutely fantastic to finally see The Real Cersei emerge this season.

The problem is that show Cersei is a better and more interesting character than book Cersei. Book Cersei is practically a Disney-villainess and pretty much Martin's worst-written characters, especially once she gets a POV. The non-Martin writers have improved on Cersei as far as I'm concerned.

I'll just write it off as the stress of the situation and the wine bringing out the worst side of her.

By and large they do. This site just has more than its share of nitpickers.

:agree:

I can not agree with this more...

GRRM is putting his name on this series. If any of the writing or producing would have offended him to the extent that we read about here, I am absolutely positive that he would have withdrawn. Instead, he is writing in the parameters of what has already been written a good portion is not exactly like he wrote it in his books. D&D has done a brilliant job of setting us up for this climax.
