    The Great Debate: Should Jon Have Lied?

    I'm having a dilemma with this as well. I sided with Jon for telling the truth and not lie especially because Cersei would've screwed him over anyway. The dilemma I have is whether or not should Jon bend the knee. I liked his stubborn focus on the war against the army of dead. It would've been more interesting to see that internal fight in him to continue a little longer: give all trust to Dany or remain the King in the north and not deal with that for now. His inner resistance was interesting to watch and was more Jon-like. But publicly bending the knee - infront of an enemy during important negotiations didn't help much either. So it was a bold move and purely out of love for Dany and not for any political reasons I think.

    Good, just wondering if it's on a daily basis on regular hours. I'm worried about their wellbeing. About Shireen. If she was sacrificed to fulfill the AA prophecy and please r'hllor, what would the reaction be when Melisandre realises Stannis is not the AA and sacrificing Shireen was useless. I don't see Melisande/Stannis bond last very long.

    Funny how the show manages to make Ramsay look not that bad at all. I don't get it, are the other two dragons being fed at all?

    I also think that people are bashing on Kit and Emilia out of habit as its so easy to bash on young lead characters. But Kit has done great in this season. Shooting these scenes at Hardhome must have been exhausting for an actor, especially if your opponent is CGI'ed, a neon green suit with black dots on it. I was impressed by the genuine sheer horror and panic and desperation at the same time on Jons face. And fighting scenes as well. To trigger those strong emotions on a film set where you have to imagine your opponents must be pretty hard so I think that was really well acted. Not sure if having a large array of facial expressions necessarily makes a great actor.

    Did anyone else get suspicious about the hooded man that was in the boat with Jon and the rest? I kept thinking at any moment he or it is gonna stab someone. His face was hidden and he was facing the sea.

    ehmm, hold on, I don't get why everyones upset that The Other ignored Sam. We don't really even know what or who the Others are. They are a different life form...other than human...and can be intelligent as far as I understan. I don't think they are senseless killing machines. And we don't quite know yet what is their motive or what are they actually fighting for. That is all yet to come. So in my opinion we can't judge it since we don't know them anyway. And Sam does seem to be not threatening at all... so if I would be the Other... I also wouldn't give a shit about some whimpering creature thats hiding. I've got some more important business to take care of. :) ... right?!

    Ooh... that "please".. hmm.. well actually I had an impression that he said it to play a puppy to Arya (kindly and subtly mocking).

    Hmmm really interesting theories about the Throne Room scene... And the actor who played Jaqen H'gar is from Germany I think :)... I saw an interview where he speeks German. Well that german accent works for the role ;)... it wasn't so much the accent I was crazy about, it was more as if the ending of every word seemed to fade away somehow. He was like speaking from his stomach and not from his throat. Anyway... I like all these details :). Yes maybe we really should let him know what an awesome job he did! All in all yes, I did enjoy it. I mean there were some scenes which fell flat on me but I don't want to whine about it. ..as there were other awesome things I did enjoy :)

    I also agree that although they didn't show the same things as in the books...there was still quite a lot of symbolism to pick up. I also thought why was it snowing in the Throne Room... and why did it look nearly destroyed. I also noticed that when Dany approached the Iron Throne, she seemed to look at something particular - her eyes were fixed to something at one point. If you are looking at a throne in general your eyes would wonder about.... but her eyes stared at one point... so I though that maybe there was someone there. And did someone realise what was she about to touch? Was it just part of a throne? All her visions included snow..accept the Khal Drogo part. And that I found interesting that she went to Khal Drogo beyond the wall. It means as if... there is something safe for her beyond the wall. When usually everyone knows that nobody goes beyond the wall, thats where the world ends basically. But she found something dearest to her beyond the wall. Also It seems to me that few things are not being mentioned by people here. Things that I found really coool. And they were: JAQEN H'GHAR!!!!! How well was he portrayed by Tom Wlaschiha!!!! He really made the character seem mysterious and dangerous. His firm facial expression which was almost always smiling but you can't really tell if that's a smile or not. And his tone of voice which knows more than it speaks...calm and solid. Really good job there - was a joy to watch! I will be missing Jaqen - I hope we will see him more. A scene with master Luwin was very touching... and what a good job by RICKON!!!! THE DRAGONS!!!! I loved the way they looked. Really good animation there. I liked how they stared at Dany as if waiting/wanting something from her. The voice the dragons make...is really good!!! You can really hear it in a voice that its not your regular cute little pet. There are so many textures to the sound they make. So yes... so many little details that make it really interesting to watch and what I feel that nobody here really mentions. Everyone is just too focused what was not shown the way it was in the books. All in all I think they did a good job covering all the necessary bits.

    I think the first half of the episode was pretty good. I really liked Arya part and changing the faces worked well for me :). Dany in the house of undying was all good until the part where dragons started burning that man. This felt very rushed and it felt as if the man was just a common human and died somehow too fast and easily. For a place like this which is guarded with spells/sorcery this just seemed too easy. I wish they had made it more dramatic. Dany in throne room was beautiful though. I feel bad that Robb was made to look so weak in this show. In books he seems to be more heroic...even if he's deciding not to marry the Frey girl. Jon didn't seem shocked enough after killing Halfhand. Ygritte just tells him..lets go... and I get the impression as if he's saying. "Ok! yep.. lets go!" The others were pretty interesting.. I actually started laughing when I saw one guy with just half a scull. Im not sure yet what to think of them. I pictured them differently... All in all it was quite good episode but most parts should have been more dramatic and darker!
