    i thought that was the point...wildlings are uncoordinated... think mance's aim wasnt to take the castle right away, remember that Jon successfully lied and mentioned they have over a 1000 men...thats y he sent the raiding part of Tormund and Thenn's to distract them, bleed the NW...with that logic it would make sense why he sent so few for a frontal assault on the gate, again to distract them, test their defenses, use up their arrows/barrels, bleed them a bit if possible... about why Mance decided to attack Castle Black and not one of the other unmanned castles...that is something i wondered while reading the books as well :dunno:

    stannis' army making an appearance for sure...but im starting to doubt if we will get more than just a glimpse of him in battle and such...no real interaction with anyone, no conversation...just battle and maybe victory

    i had very mixed feelings on this episode... the main problem is i had too high expectations of how far the story would progress...i did not expect 50mins devoted to only the first skirmish...i honestly expected they would show this much in about 25-30mins...then 5 jon with mance, then stannis attacks and another 15-20 mins of battle anyway, what i liked about the ep - - GHOST! even if for 2 seconds - action was up to par IMO - fire was impressive - Thorne actually admitting that Jon was right - Jon's fight against the Thenn, finally redeemed himself as a worthy fighter - the anchor was amazing - ygrittes death was done well, not too much time wasted on it what i disliked about the ep - - ofcourse no stannis - too slow progression of story - no one actually giving Jon the wall, but that he took it himself (mixed feelings about this though cuz in a way, its more mature of Jon to take command himself rather than wait for someone to force it upon him) - not enough giant/mammoth action - tormund captured a bit too easily IMO what i thought was very weird about the ep - - sams sudden maturity - slynt hiding in same cellar with Gilly - gillys baby not crying at all throughout the whole way from moles town to the wall - less than 10 seconds devoted to Ghost - why Thorne did not make an appearance after the fighting was done and before Jon decided to go speak to mance on his own all in all, i would give the ep a 6.5 or 7 out of 10 if im being very generous

    i see where your coming from...definitely agree would be too weird to see Tywin on the shitter...but the point of it was that was a humiliating death, dead whore on the bed on top of the fact that it was his own son killing him....so im okay with some change, but not too drastic...perhaps still in the bathroom, but washing hands or something... after the crossbow, he might land on the shitter or something...or skip that part, long as he dies in the bathroom with Shae dead on the bed and Tyrion kills him, i'm okay with it...if dagger/sword instead of crossbow, or just dead body drops on the bathroom floor...

    agreed...i've said this myself (i think)....max that will happen ending of this season is Stannis offering Jon Winterfell by legitimizing him...rest will be handling the wildlings

    im assuming you are talking about the guy Ramsay flayed? its the same all the time...general people dont bat an eye when millions of african kids starve to death, but 370 people disappear on a plane and they lose their minds for months....people only care about the people they like or are interested in...no tears shed over an unnamed, unknown person even if they were skinned alive :(

    god damn! just watched the fight again! so fast paced! so much room to maneuver! hound vs. berric was nothing be comparison! ned vs. Jaime was similar area, still smaller but about a third of the length! whoever didnt like it...guys u really gottta rewatch it....the mountain was constantly charging at him like a raging bull! oberyn kept attacking and retreating, looking for a weak spot...while he might have had time in the beginning to let the mountain know who he was and why he was there...soon as oberyn clearly states that he wants Gregors confession, gregor charges at him and doesnt stop charging! Gregor knocked him down twice! broke one of his spears! Oberyn stopped playing around after that, thats why he went for kill move to bring him down...after Gregor was down...oberyn continued to get his confession the entire fight, from Gregor's first swing to hearing Oberyns skull crushing is 3mins and 6secs... i will grant you that there might have been one to many camera angles for the fight, showing everyones reaction so frequently was unnecessary and yes the Mountains helmet was stupid...but it doesnt bother me, IMO was an amaaazing fight sequence and truly perfect to the books...
