  1. Brilliant episode. By far the best of the season. -- Always love new additions to the credits sequence. Yunkai was no exception. Loved that it was oh so slightly different to Astapor. -- Jon / Ygritte was interesting. I have no objections to sex/nudity when they serve a story purpose, and this one absolutely did. -- Talisa siding against the killing of Karstack was very interesting, esp. since she's supposed to be miss nicey nice. Seems she's ok with the whole "for the greater good" argument. -- Jaime / Brienne. Oh man, Jaime / Brienne. Brilliantly done and straight from the books. Also no objections to the nudity here too -- esp. since this whole scene is straight from the books. -- Loved that the discussion about Aegon followed with a Dany scene, and especially loved that Jaime's talk about having dirt for honor was followed with Selmy talking about how an honorable man follows his king right or wrong. Good mirroring there. -- Shireen just about made my heart melt. Her scene with Davos in the prison made me cry. edit: oh, and I can't forget the lampshading of Selmy not being on the small council and how it changed Jorah's concerns about having his secret spilled. I like that they acknolwedged that it was a continuity issue, and I like how they massaged it. Cogman knows how to do his work, yessir.
  2. Tywin's scene was amazing. And poor Willas. No existence for him. Misa ab iPhono meo est.
  3. The bear and the maiden fair!! Finally. Brienne giving crap to Jaime is completely unacceptable though. She's supposed to be impressed. Edit: gonna miss Hot Pie!!!
  4. Yeah, I was glad that QoT didn't seem too close like the Dowager Countess of Grantham -- I can just see show-only viewers complaining that QoT is cribbing off of Downton! :lmao:
  5. Tyrion thinks Sansa is hit, now? Shae divulging sloppy LF's plans?
  6. Ugh. I'm torn. The HotU was a major disappointment--it's not to say what they did wasn't good--but those visions were pretty darned important. They justified the whole Qarth excursion, which was otherwise pointless (and seems pointless now). yeah the dracarys was cool and the snow-covered throne-room is interesting, but... blah. Theon cointinues to be an idiot. Talisa and Robb... well. Tyrion and Shae... welll. The Margaery farce was entertaining (there were several laugh out loud moments in my viewing party) and it was enjoyable to see the palpable pleasure on Sansa's face, if only for a moment.
  7. What an episode. Sophie Turner was MAGNIFICENT. As per usual, she kills every scene she's in. Both the devious insousciance with Joffrey and the terror when talking with Cersei--nailed it. I like that Sansa is basically this brave, angelic counterpart to the cynical, world-weary Cersei. While Cersei is losing it and attacking Lancel, Sansa thinks of the others and tries to buoy their spirits. What a queenly thing to do. Magnificent. Oh, and I guess there was some green pyrotechnics, a manly Baratheon, and a catchy little tune too...
