    [Book Spoilers] EP510 Discussion

    I'd be fascinated to see that play out but I honestly don't think it will come to that. There are just so many potential contenders ready to take advantage.

    Also, why make a point of showing him seemingly growing to at least respect Jon a little with his reaction to being made first ranger and the 'you've got a good heart, but' moment - it made it even less likely he'd be involved. The extra reasoning such as going south for the pink letter was missing, so it seemed a bit one dimensional. I think they could have shown more of the moral struggle, they made it seem like it was only Olly who even thought twice about it. I thought hardhome was excellent and I don't mind little slips like the wrong side of the wall for the sake of dramatic effect but for the watch wasn't as good as it could have been. It felt rushed to me.

    How would you rate episode 306?

    I agree with most, I'd still rate it high compared a lot of TV, but within the series, it scores low. For me: High points - Arya, Maisie Williams continues to amaze - Jamie/Brienne/Bolton - I love Jamie back to his old arrogant self with a bit of this new attitude, trying to save Brienne even if subtly. - Theon/Boy, it must be a difficult scene to do but the acting is great. - The Freys were well cast, and though I'm not sold on what they're doing with that story I actually loved Tobias Menzies in this scene. - Tywin & Olena, the dialogue and actors made this scene amazing to watch, but I'm not keen on seeing the Queen of Thorns apparently outmanoeuvred in that fashion, even by Tywin. Possible low points - I think Ros started as a relatively unimportant narrative plot device in season one, so after building her into something more it just seemed a bit cheap killing her off before she had truly accomplished very much. - Ygritte & Jon, I actually liked the suspense of the climb, but the smooching went over the line into cheesy for me. - Sansa finding out - and them not showing us the awkward three-way dialogue?? Missed opportunity I think. - The BWB selling Gendry out, I agree they could have done that differently, and its a shame really but I also don't think its quite as bad as people are suggesting. All in all, I can live with the low points, and I'm sure it will pay off in the next few episodes.
