    I'm glad they included Jaime's iconic line- "There are no men like me, only me." This episode was very faithful in terms of quoting from the book, unlike the previous episode, where they skipped the part where Tyrion pays Tysha a dragon because Lannisters are worth more.

    How Would You Rate Episode 109?

    Guys just be glad this show didn't turn out to be like Camelot or the Borgias. It has a larger budget than either of those shows, and $10 million was spent on the pilot alone. The only two HBO shows I can think of that had a larger budget was BoB and the pacific, and those two were miniseries.

    Amazing episode. Did everything I expected, with the exception of marillion's tongue getting cut off. That doesn't mean he dies, so he may have another role to play in ASOS still. I liked Varys scene with LF, and I enjoyed Pycelle's scene as well. There wasn't any part I disliked, and suffice to say, the episode ended the season with a bang.

    4th episode was the worst. 2nd was bad too. This one's just underwhelming

    They dragged on during the scenes I thought were passable, but they skipped over a lot of the scenes I thought were absolutely necessary. The first half took painfully long to build up, and it isn't till the sixth season when things start to pick up. Example, they should have focused on Bran's relationship with Rob more, included Green Forks, and more of Whispering Wood. What it did not need was a scene between Cersei and Robert, LF's brothel scene, or any of Roz's scenes. Less the tent scene in EP09 and the extra scenes between Varys and LF. There's plently that could've been cut out, and plenty more that could have been added in. Details like Tyrion paying Tysha a gold copper, Catelyn's harrowing ascent up the Vale, and LF's infamous quotes are absent as well. The show could've been much better imo, but there's room for potential. We'll see how these actors grow into these roles, especially the child actors. It'll be interesting to see how they age each year, both emotionally and physically. One thing that struck me odd was how slow the plot was. four books later, and only two years have past. Characters don't age much, but on the show they will, since it's one book each year at best.

    Martin will be writing the Battle of Blackwater episode. You can expect plently of actions scenes in that episode, bc something that important can't feasibly be cut

    There's a large battle/conflict at the end of every book. Even in AFFC, we have the siege of Riverrun. To not include even one of those, just one friggin battle scene, is a slap in the face. It's like the whole plot was building up to that point, and the writers and producers decided, you know what, we can skip this and spend the money saved on T&A scenes and character development.

    Terrible terrible. I was hoping for an epic battle at the Green Forks, but I only saw the aftermath. If there was thing I was looking forward to the most this season, it had to be this battle, and they cut it. Why spend money on pointless sex scenes and extra scenes not from the book? They could've used this money to depict the battle. I'm also disappointed how Grey Wind got no screen time, Roose Bolton and Karstark are absent. Where the hell is the Blackfish? They could've at least mentioned Karstark's sons getting cut down. That means Karstark is cut from the show, and his whole mutiny thing is absent from the 3rd book. I wouldn't be surprised if Bolton is cut out from the show, bc they could just get the Freys to mastermind the whole Red Wedding scene. I had such high hopes for this episode, and this last part of the series. Now i know better, lower expectations are needed to enjoy this show. However I heard Martin will be writing the S2 episode about the Battle of Blackwater. So don't worry, there will be a battle eventually, a year from now. Next time, you can be sure not to be let down during the most crucial moment of the 2nd book.
