    Next season should just be titled "Negative Population Growth".

    How would you rate episode 310?

    It's so funny that this season is being called the best yet, but the finale was the worst yet.

    "HODOOOOOOOOOOOOOOR" I liked Bran telling the Rat Cook story, Arya actually seeing RobbWind (which I felt was even more disturbing than the picture that was originally posted), and Tywin (as always). Everything else seemed kinda meh. So done with the Dragonstone bits.

    I feel like nothing happened in that 60 minute finale. Da fuck.

    This is the interview that you are probably referring to: http://www.buzzfeed.com/kateaurthur/game-of-thrones-michelle-fairley-catelyn-interview-spoilers I can't wait for Episode 10. Roose was amazing. I loved the little smirk and eye directions. Proper sociopath.

    Maybe he was telling a half truth. He did give Walder Frey a look when Roslin lifted her veil. Walder shot him back a shrug that said "Fucking moron, you should've met my daughters before breaking your vow". From Michelle's interviews, it kinda sounds like she is done with the show. Her response to if she knew about the Red Wedding coming was "I read the books and knew how many seasons I had signed on for". I think she is done, but I like the Uncat killing Frey machine.

    Considering that most of the viewers were shocked, I don't think they overplayed anything. Just because you knew what was coming doesn't mean everyone else did. I can't stand people on this forum nitpicking without being able to take an objective look at the production of this television show.

    Blackfish was never Lord Paramount of the Trident. Edmure was when Hoster died, but after the Red Wedding, Littlefinger became Lord Paramount of the Trident and Lord of Harrenhal.

    1) Blackfish. Yes, I preferred him staying in Riverrun, but I understood it. He was developed as a loyal man to Robb and family member, so it made sense to put him in the entourage. 2) Arya. While that plays in the books, it would've been trite as hell on screen. What was done was effective. The reason why we were worried in the books is because it simply said that she took an axe to her head, whereas how do you show that in the TV show while being worried about her death? In the books, you have no idea if its the blunt side or the blade. Sandor's fist did the trick. 3) Roslin's lack of crying was due to the producers not wanting to let on about the impending doom. If she cried, it would've tipped people off even more than they were. 4) I agree, I would've preferred him to kill Robb as in the book. The drive by stabbing lacked a lot of gravitas. 5) Jamie is on his redemption arc. Bolton mentioning that makes like Jamie was the architect rather than Tywin. 6) Clive Mantel and the producers had a falling out, hence why he did not return for season 2. I really was saddened by this because he was one of the best characters in the TV show. 7) The hair comment was an internal thought and would have been the dumbest shit ever to say out loud. No one would've understood it. We get lots of cool little easter eggs as readers throughout the season, that would not have been an appropriate use of one. 8) Plays in the book, doesn't really play on screen. You need to understand that just because it works on paper doesn't mean it translates to the screen. While I believe that falling into catatonia was kind of a cop-out, I do believe that the self mutilation was forgone because of Lady Stoneheart. Same reason that Tyrion still has a nose. Her going insane would not have made it any more powerful than it was, it just would've detracted from what was actually happening. Michelle killed it.

    I loved it. The people I watched with did not.

    Stormcrows and Second Sons were merged. I doubt we'll ever seen Ben Plumm.

    Nevermind, rewatched that scene.

    How about Gleeson's performance? At the wedding when he was demanding a bedding, he kept going in and out of acting drunk. One second he'd say something with a drunken swagger, then he'd be as bone sober as a kid who has X's on his hands. Dinklage was excellent.

    The only thing I want to nitpick over is when Cersei tells Margaery about "The Rains of Castamere". Cersei references to seeing the corpses hang above Casterly Rock, but in the books, she was not even born yet. House Reyne and Tarbeck were annihilated in 260AL and Jamie + Cersei were born in 266AL.

    If Sansa wouldn't kneel, it would've just insulted Tyrion and gave pleasure to other Lannisters (sans Tywin). Stupid point to nitpick about. Also, viewers would've hated Sansa for it, and quite frankly after next weeks episode, they'll need to cling to all the Stark love they can.
