Solid 9. Sansa is playing "the game," Arya's lol, Ygritte's moment of compassion, Dany acting like a dragon should, Ramsay being Ramsay, a clever foreshadowing thanks to LF, Tyrion and Jaime making fun of the mentally handicapped, and an amazing 1v1 medieval duel, choreographed to perfection, ended with gruesome perfection. I tried to prepare myself for Oberyn's death. Not the fact that he died, but how he died. It was gruesome reading it. Seeing it? Well, you can't un-see it! The duel was executed masterfully, almost verbatim. Oberyn, all cocky, showing off to the crowd, determined for vengeance. The Mountain, looking completely badass in dark plate and mail with his greatsword, ready to kill whoever he's told to. Seems there's a lot of hate on how short it was. It's not like it's a heavyweight bout between two boxers NOT named Mike Tyson. It's a 1v1 medieval duel between two warriors trained to kill and determined to kill the guy in front of them as quickly as possible. I'm no scholar, and wasn't alive back in the Middle Ages, but I'm pretty sure a fight like that wouldn't go much longer than 5-10 minutes on average. I loved the scene of Jon and Co. discussing Mole's Town's pillaging and Gilly's fate. If the Night's Watch had a dodgeball team, those are my guys. Jon, Grenn, Edd, Pyp, Sam the Slayer. Jon as Captain, and don't underestimate Sam, he killed a White Walker after all! Moat Cailin looked amazing...for a 7000+ year old decrepit, albeit, still useful fortress surrounded by hostile swampland. I've read a lot of hate for the Grey Worm/Missandei scene. Don't know why. I know it was filler, but Grey Worm is an awesome secondary character, both in the books and show, and it was a well acted scene that made you feel for Grey Worm (even if he barely has feelings) and realize that even though he is Unsullied, he is still a man (at least on the inside). And, oh yeah, some nice boobs. The only thing that kept it from being a 10 for me is the Hound and Arya's scene where he just announced to the world that "Hey, here's Arya Stark, the biggest milk box/amber alert child for the last few years." Don't know where they go from there.
