  1. Hard for me to grade. Do they know that Martin will kill Shireen? The end was pretty terrific. I gave it a 6. But if Shireen ends up with the same fate in the books then it should get a 9.
  2. So the best rated episode this season is the one with zero scenes in Dorne. Not surprised.
  3. Pretty sure both dragon glass and Valyrian Steel both need Dragon's fire to be created. That seems to be the key ingredient to creating something that can kill them.
  4. Thats the only thing that bothered me. She was terrific. Wanted to see more of her.
  5. Best battle so far. I yelled when LONGCLAW shattered the white walker. 10/10
  6. What pissed me off the most was how they handled Pyke. Why is Balon Still alive? And why is Asha super gung ho about sailing all the way around Westeros to save her brother? This is incredibly stupid and I hope it doesnt foreshadow horrible changes to the Iron Islands storyline. Yes its going to be condense big time for TV but its general outline needs to be kept intact.
  7. The Tyrion of the books would never have this dynamic. I guess it matches the Tyrion of Season 2/Season 3 on the show. Im just sad that my favorite fictional character of all time has been changed.
  8. There is good adaptation and bad adaptation. The changes they make are mostly bad. I dont mind changes that make sense. However most of the changes, especially in this episode, were horrible.
  9. As soon as he wrapped the bloody "Game of Thrones" scene in which his character, Robb Stark, was killed, actor Richard Madden went straight to the airport and flew home to London. "And I cried the whole way," Madden said in a recent phone interview. "I was the crazy boy on the plane crying." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/02/game-of-thrones-robb-stark_n_3368224.html
  10. Wonderfully horrific. Reaction videos will be showing up again on youtube.
  11. Amazing how much this improves the overall quality of the episode. Just the pacing and overall feel of the episode greatly improves.
  12. I gave it a 9. I loved book Daario and I like TV Daario. Both a great. I LOOOOOOOOVED Tyrion's drunken humor. Fantastic. Finally Sam the Slayer. Lots of good stuff this ep.
  13. First of all its not "Westerosi" its common. Common was brought over to Westeros by the Andals, who came from the Eastern Continent to begin with. Yunkai is a MAJOR port city with a ton of trade. Im sure most of the upper class can speak common, among several language, as it greatly benefits their trade. I
  14. The Theon scene and the Sansa/Marg scenes were horrendous. I cant believe GRRM wrote them. Even at gunpoint.
  15. I gave it a 7. I thought the Theon scene was well acted, but honestly dont like the way it fits in this season. It ruins the pacing of the episode and the overall mood. I dont really care for it and I can see why GRRM kept it off page. I LOVED the Thoros/Mel scene. Thoros' story was amazing and it was my favorite scene in this episode. Robb's scene was well done. They are doing a great job of endearing the audience to the young wolf. I again liked the acting between QoT and Tywin (two of the best actors in the series) however I didnt like the outcome. An opportunity there to move the plot back towards the books. Jon/Ygr is overdone. Seems too sentimental for my taste. Overall still not happy with how the North is being done. All in all it was an average episode. About the same as Ep 1 and 2 this season.
  16. Ian Glen has been amazing. One of the most underrated actors on the show. He really conveys so much without even talking or with the cadence and tone in his voice alone.
  17. Seriously. She became Daenerys Stormborn in so many ways this episode. Her accent and tone were PERFECT. Valyrian sounds amazing. They did such a good job. I rewound her reveal 5 times and still got goosebumps each time...
  18. 10. The last 20 minutes of the episode were amazing. The rest was pretty good. I normally would give it a 9, but the end was so amazing, it would be criminal to give it anything but a ten.
  19. West could be a great Oberyn Martell. Maybe a bit too young, but Jon Connington would be cool too.
  20. I think they will reveal Dany's understanding of Valerian right before she destroys them. There would be little point to separate the two events.
  21. The Bank was discussed when Tyrion was going over how Littlefinger "cooked" the books a bit. It was a lot nuanced than the simple way the show handled it but the Bank of Braavos was definitely mentioned here. It was even discussed how the Bank would proceed if the crown were to default on the loans. As for non book readers I think the mention is fine. Braavos has been mentioned by Arya's sword master and they get the sense that it is a land across the sea. Thats enough really.
  22. I wouldnt describe Hinds portrayal of Mance as either rugged nor charismatic. More stoic and measured in my opinion. I think they honestly molded Mance to Hinds strengths. There is no way West plays Mance like this. Or else why would you ever cast West? We are talking about Jimmy McNulty here...
  23. Rewrites are done all the time. Even large rewrites of certain characters. Changes are made before casting, during casting, after casting, and even during shooting. Sometimes rewrites are done and then re-shot. Just because they said they completed the script doesnt mean they didnt make changes afterwards to better reflect certain actor's acting style. Hinds and West are completely different. They bring a completely different feel to the character. I highly doubt what we see is word for word what they wanted for West.
