  1. I do not understand the bashing and saying that Stannis was ruined or seen as evil. I thought the scene was great, it caught all of them totally by suprise and showed the organization of a great leader. Total badass scene as the wildling was charging and was cut down, Stannis never flinched and just kept coming.
  2. Good episode, not great, gave a 7. Tyrion / Jaime not discussing Tysha seemed a little wrong. Still, fathers day was done well enough. Cersei / Tywin, I understand why they did this, it was to show how manipulative she is and the lengths she will go to. Bran, good scene Arya taking charge, good
  3. I am going to likely get burned alive for saying this, but I don't get all of the Blackwater love. To me, and I am entitled to my opinion, Blackwater was a good episode but it was also full of holes. This episode, had a lot of scenes that were very true to the book and it still gets slammed. If they hadn't wasted 45 seconds on this we could have had more of this....come on, really? For me, this has been the best season as a whole. Yes there have been some scenes that felt wasted but there were tens of thousands of words in the books that were wasted also, it just happens. Just relax and enjoy it for what it is, because after Sunday we have 10 months to wait and speculate again. If only we had a book to read between seasons to pass the time.....
  4. Very solid 9, I have only given a few 9's for the entire series. Pretty much enjoyed every bit from beginning to end. Liked how Jon learned from his fight and spit blood in the Thenns eye to get an advantage. Loved Sam dropping the F bomb at the gate, think his balls dropped finally. Really liked the giant shooting the arrow up the wall, yes it's unrealistic but it was a stunning visual with the body landing in the middle of the battle on the other side.
  5. Really enjoyed this episode, and really pretty much the entire season. For me this has been the best season so far and there are still some huge scenes waiting to happen. Loved seeing Sansa come into her own and start to take control of her situation, to me this was what we will see from her in TWOW. The Arya scene and her laughter to me was pretty accurate. She was basically cracking because everytime she thinks she is going to be ok something else happens. So for her to lose it seemed appropriate, now she can move on to the FM because she thinks everyone is dead except Jon.
  6. Gave it an 8. I have given at least three 8's so far this season. Highest was a 9, lowest this year a 7. The only low for me was the beetle story. I just kept thinking, "why do beetles die"? Hopefully it doesn't replace, "where do whores go"? Highs, action at the wall, Snow becoming a Bolton, Sansa becoming an active player and of course the duel.
  7. Really liked this episode, very well done. Didn't care for the scene with the mountain, made no real sense. What kind of training is killing untrained un armored people? Also the Mel bath scene. I loved the visual(!) but it seemed out of place. If Peter Dinklage doesn't win an award for his acting this year it will be a travesty.
  8. Just a thought that is with me now. Did Dany have ships at this point in the books, if so then forgive me and don't trash me too badly? I want to think she didn't, but now has 93 of them, which is a pretty healthy amount. The real question I have is, could they now cut Victarion since she already has a decent sized fleet? Could they just cut the entire dragon binding horn and red priest? I hope not but you never know.
  9. I gave it an 8, some of it was a little slow. Did not like Cersei / Marg conversation, just felt out of place. You can however see how Cersei is trying to "play nice" with everyone so she can get what she wants, Tyrion dead! Vale seemed fine to me, except the very first spot where the soldiers are all ready to kill them. I mean if LF was there recently they should know who he is since Lyssa loves him so much. Liked Lyssa scene with Sansa, and is it just me or was Lyssa hair darker before, like a lot darker? Crasters keep.... I would have preferred Jon and Bran met but Bran was able to show Jon why he has to keep going. Definitely figured on Bran skinchanging Hodor, nice Boss kill!
  10. Was just able to watch the episode yesterday, and have not read all 15 pages of this so forgive me if some of what i say is repetitive. I liked the change of Sam telling Jon about Bran. I never believed that Sam would allow Jons crippled brother to head north alone and never tell him. Sam knows what is up there so I just couldn't see it happening that way. I somewhat like Locke being added to the watch, didn'tlike him conveiniently over hearing the Jon / Sam discussion, just a little too contrived. Liked the Ceasar reference from Jon when talking about the brothers betraying the LC and stabbing him in the back!
  11. Insert random character to die by locusts...Red shirt star trek guy
  12. As far as Coldhands is concerned, GRRM stated that he is much much older, when asked about who he is, relating to Benjen. So, the author himself has said Benjen is not Coldhands. Strong Belwas, eh, no big loss. He was a colorful character but he really only existed to get Barriston to Dany, and since the tv show couldn't hide who he was like the book could, there was no reason for the extra charater. I think I prefer Daario killing the champion anyway, lends more to Dany liking him.
  13. I didn't like the Sam and Gilly to moletown, doesn't make sense and took up too much time that could have been used on someone else. When I read the books I didn't read the Jaime/Cersei scene as rape, this was like a rape. Just felt wrong from where Jaime's character is right now. Liked Edd and Grenn showing back up, would rather have seen and heard more from them and less Sam/Gilly. Liked the barrels of broken chains, very symbolic. Hopefully this season will show more of Dany's failings in Mereen, how her just setting people free has had some really bad consequences. Pretty much love every scene with the Hound and Arya, doesn't seem to matter what they are doing.
  14. Also gave it a 7. Sam and Gilly scenes were just in the way of a better episode and pulled it down. I would have much rather heard more from Edd and ??? Grenn?? Name slips me right now. Did not like Jaime/Cersei scene. Would have made more sense for Cersei to use her feminine "weapons" to try to get Jaime to kill Tyrion and Sansa. They made it look like a rape, when in the book it was not.
  15. About the poisoning and who did what. Has anyone thought that Olena takes the poison from the necklace and gives it to Margeary. Tells Margeary that this "medicine" will calm him down or something along those lines? That would help explain how the poison got into the cup when Olena was so far away. Or, Olena dropped it in as she walked by, knowing that Margeary would not drink from the royal chalice. You notice only the King has a chalice, all else are using regular glasses. Either one can explain it, and it seems from the next trailer that Margeary didn't know.
  16. I can definitely see LF making sure Sweet Robin dies in the next book. His whole being wants power and if the person he is trying to use as a puppet, Sansa, is married to the Lord of the Vale, then LF is emmensely powerful. He could rally the North and use the army of the Vale to take Winterfell back. He will absolutely try to ensure Sweet Robin dies soon.
  17. Gave it an 8. Liked most of it, to me Dragonstone was my least favorite part this week. Liked that they gave the 3 eyed crow a voice, people who didn't know that the crow, wasn't just a crow should now be interested more. Liked Loras' jab at Jaime as he walked away...basically, You will never marry her either sister f'er! And any episode where the King prick dies has to be good. Liked fat Walda appearance, again, wonder how many remember he got her weight in silver?
