    GoT Actors in Other Stuff - Part 2

    Burn Gorman (Karl Tanner) plays the Marshall in "The man in the high castle", a new series exclusive (I believe) to Amazon. Oliver Ford Davies (Maester Cressen) has a small role in "You, me and the apocalypse", a series currently airing on sky 1 (uk).

    I liked what they did with Grey Wind. It was awesome to have him kill some Freys in the books, but just the way he looked at Arya for that second, it seemed there was a look in his eyes like he knew he couldn't help Robb. It also meant the wedding was just 100% massacre, no chance to fight back at all, which hit really hard.

    Grey Wind looking over to Arya as he died was the most heartbreaking thing i've ever seen.

    Holy fuck that was brutal. I need a hug.
  5. I was expecting this for a second too, i doubt they'll be bringing the Mountain back to chop him up like Vargo Hoat.
  6. In between all the various nitpicking, this made me laugh quite a lot, and so i thank you.

    How would you rate episode 306?

    Really?! You don't think he's taking Edric's role from the books, to be saved from Mel by Davos? I thought this seemed pretty clear.

    That's true, although i like that both Roose & Ramsay have quite pale eyes in the show - i'm pretty much loving everything about House Bolton right now, could listen to Ramsay for hours, that dudes funny!!

    I think it's pretty clear this will happen too.

    I actually disagree with this. Ramsay is supposed to be pretty much the most despicable person in the show, so i think we need plenty of scenes showing just how messed up he is. Also, those 2 are among the best actors on the show imo, so i'm really enjoying these scenes. :)

    Yes, Tyrion went to see her & tell her about their wedding, and then she is shown crying whilst watching LF's ship leave (which she obviously now wishes she was on, seeing as she's marrying Tyrion instead of Loras).

    Loved that they included a bit of the Ghost of High Heart stuff for Arya, even though it wasn't exactly the same (possibly my favourite quote from the books). I also thought LF had sent Ros to Qyburn for a second. Then when Varys started talking about chaos, i knew the LF speech from the promo was coming & wasn't sure how they'd work it in (loved it in the promo). I think it worked well over the Joff/Ros & Sansa scenes. Good stuff!

    Is it weird that I could watch a whole episode of Ramsay/Theon?! The casting for house Bolton is superb imo.

    Seems like each week now is my new favourite episode, and this one was just constantly brilliant Hound & Beric Jon & Ygritte Jaime & Brienne Jaime & Qyburn Arya, Thoros & Beric Robb & Karstark Tywin, Cersei & Tyrion all superbly acted imo :bowdown:

    How would you rate episode 305?

    I thought Maisie was brilliant in the scene with Beric & Thoros And yeah, Shireen singing over the credits was very creepy, loved it.

    yeah that was really creepy, loved it.
  18. My thoughts exactly, there was definitely something up with her eyes!
  19. Regarding the Varys scene with the sorcerer in a crate, (which possibly was "mailed" by Illyrio). Isn't that pretty much how Tyrion arrives at Illyrio's after fleeing King's Landing? I may be mis-remembering here but i think i recall him being tipped out of a barrell/crate?
  20. The Sansa/Loras proposal won't last long, and Tywin may put Loras in the KG specifically to prevent the marriage, then set up Sansa/Tyrion.
  21. I've never been a big fan of Dany throughout the books, but that was fucking awesome!!

    Awesome episode, enjoyed the first 2 a lot but this just blew me away!! Small council non-musical chairs was hilarious. Final scene worked fantastically combined with the song straight after, loved how we - and Jaime - just have enough time to register what has happened before the song kicks in. Masterfully done imo. :cheers:

    How would you rate episode 301?

    9 Thought the Tywin/Tyrion scene was fantastic, along with Davos' interactions with Salladhor/Stannis/Mel. Jon's scene got better & better as it went, was also pleased with Tormund after hearing some had reservations regarding his character's portrayal. (plus the giant looked awesome!) Thought Dany's scenes were good too - especially the unsullied one. Only the Sansa/Shae/Ros/Littlefinger scene seemed a little disjointed to me, otherwise it would have been a 10. Great start to the season.......now to re-watch!!
