    [Book Spoilers] EP509 Discussion

    I rooted for Stannis knowing he was a tool. I don't get dissapointed when the tool works. A tool doesn't care about emotions or attachments, it exists to get the job done. I will still root for him after this, and once his task is finished and he is discarded I will root for the next tool that takes his place. Poor shireen though :(

    Mace Tyrell, the only man in the world who isn't intimidated by the Iron Bank. Even Stannis was a bit nervous meeting them.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 507?

    The High Sparrow totally made this episode. His scenes with Olenna and Cersei are the best. I was worried the faith storyline would lose it's effect without the kettleblacks but the show managed to pull it off. Also surprised that the first sand snake scene with nudity ended up being their best scene yet. Psycho Tyene jumped from background scenery to be the most interesting of the three so far. If Tyene and her poisons become important in the story later on (When she's in KL), then this was a good enough way to establish that. There may still be hope for Dorne after all.

    How would you rate episode 409?

    Well I don't think there really was much Wall intrigue in the book prior to the battle, and the sudden Janos/Thorne plot at the end was really more of an annoyance to the reader rooting for poor Jon, and I don't know how that would play out visually. Probably be a universal facepalm from the viewers, like "Really? there's an army on their doorstep and everyones gonna die but these two soulless antagonists are more concerned about Jon fucking Snow???" And this was BEFORE he really became a potential candidate for LC. Having it happen more subtly a few episodes prior to the attack does seem a bit more realistic. The real intrigue begins once Stannis settles in.

    They have a whole season 5 to deal with LS. Tyrion's actions and the outcome of the battle at the Wall are the real turning points of the story. Everything changes from there. LS would be great but at this point I rather have them concentrate on the important stuff instead of cramming everything together, which might ruin ALL those great moments. And they're already pushing it.

    So long as there's no filler moments next episode, No Ls reveal, and no Eyrie. Then it can be done. One or two scenes for Dany. One for Bran. One or two for Arya. One or two for our long-awaited Stannis (and hopefully not rushed right away in the first five minutes of the episode!) then everything else in KL.

    How would you rate episode 409?

    Well they were going for a Helm's Deep vibe here and in that they succeeded minus the climax. Sure it would have been more satisfying with Stannis ending but i'll reserve final judgement untill after we see the next episode. I'm REALLY HOPING the Stannis charge doesn't happen at the beginning but anywhere on the second half would be great ESPECIALLY if it's the last scene (I'm almost certain there's no LS reveal because the promo seemed to show Brienne meeting the Hound instead :eek:)

    How would you rate episode 408?

    Times like this make me regret reading the books first. Imagine watching the dual without knowing the outcome? Also never knew the nature of the human race could be summed up with story about killing beetles :)
