  1. I have heard rumors, recently and from dubious sources, that because of the length of many of GRRM's manuscripts and his writing style that the series may be expanded for an eighth and maybe even ninth novel to close the series out as the story he intended to tell. Is there any truth to this?

    How Would You Rate Episode 109?

    It wasn't the battles for me. It was the way they portrayed Tyrion. Tyrion is one of the characters who makes this story special and different from others. He is UNIQUE and he deserves to be treated like so. GRRM treated him that way and the actor has fulfilled the image on screen. I don't think treating him like he is a special character, even after the fact, is too much to ask from the writers on screen.

    How Would You Rate Episode 109?

    I also only registered here because of this episode. I am a long time reader of the site though (from before the series) and have been an avid reader of the series since college. I think the dramatic side of the episode was still there and enjoyed it for what it was in its own right separate from the books. The slumber party and game scene was a little drawn out for my taste but I did like the revelation by Tyrion coming into play though I think it lost some effect and luster minus the gold coin for him at the end. The final scene was definitely gut wrenching. I'm not as upset about the battles not being on film but I am rather upset at the way Tyrion was portrayed; Tyrion is no super dwarf warrior but was very much an exceptional commander in the field when the opportunities were given him and he fought as best he could given his attributes in the books. For the overall dramatic effect of the episode I could have given it a ten but between the disappointment of absolutely not a hint of actual action in the field and the portrayal of Tyrion I can only muster to give it an 8 out of 10 . . . The Tyrion thing just miffed me a bit too much.
