    How would you rate episode 309?

    I gave it a 9, but perhaps I'm too much of a perfectionist. I was worried about Talisa's presence at the wedding, and honestly one of the things that bothered me was Robb's reaction to her murder. He looked neither sad, nor angry, but rather bewildered. I wish that his facial expression would have shown the emotions that he would probably have been feeling in that moment. I thought Michelle Fairley did a great job of capturing Cat's emotions, but its just hard to do justice to the emotionally crippling internal monologue that you get to read in the books. I also figured she wouldn't be able to scratch at her face, as it would be a make up nightmare for the TV folks, but missed it all the same. All in all though, I thought that the scene was adapted really well (hence a 9). My friends who have not read the books were very worried as soon as the bedding was over and the guards closed the doors, and from then on out, seemed nearly as displeased as I was when I read the scene. As a side note, I wish they could have given the extra suspense of not knowing that Arya survived the Hound's axe, like there was in the book, but I'm afraid in that case too many folks would have quit watching the show. Great job D&D. Here's to hoping they continue to do a great job adapting.
