    I think child murder is back on the table: Robin and Shireen are in big trouble...

    Solid 8 for me. Things I didn't like: The scene with Arya, Sandor and the dying man felt really useless to me and honestly, when the man was talking I thought "Well, that's what happen when a mediocre actor lands in a terrific cast." I really don't like Dario, no idea if it's the new actor or the character... maybe both. Brienne saying "You say...?". Because yeah, they got damn lucky with Hotpie, but Pod is right about being discreet. The Mountain slaughtering prisoners. I thought it was a gratuitous scene. I don't see how slaying worthless weaklings can "train" the Mountain in any way. He'd get more strength by hacking some trees... Things I liked: The three jail scenes with Tyrion. In the Jaime one they really seem close, it's the first time I had the "brother" impression when I saw them, nailed it! The one with Bronn is great too, I like how Bronn explains to Tyrion that objectively he can't stand as his champion and there's nothing Tyrion can tell about it. Love the feeling of despair when Bronn leaves the cell. The scene with Oberyn is the most intense of the three. I was really struck by the description of Cersei which really came to life. The Hotpie scene was very nice. Also it's nice to see Brienne and Pod quickly on their way to awesome events. The tragedy seems to keep building up at Castle Black. The relationship between Sansa and Petyr is very interesting, loved the smile when he said he killed Jeoffrey to avenge Catelyn (it didn't feel like a lie to me but maybe I'm wrong). I think Baelish is one of the most powerful man in Westeros and the love he bears to Sansa gives her a certain power over him. I hope she'll realize that soon enough. Overall very nice episode with awesome upcoming events.

    I liked it because it felt like we got the season 1 Sansa back :D

    He said he'd seen her on the ship. The Tyrion asks if he's seen the ship sail away and Bronn avoids the questions saying "She's fine, now go drink..." So yes, when I saw this moment I thought things weren't over with Shae, yet. Next episode may tell us if Bronn is still in Tyrion's service.

    Everything you say makes sense. We can also imagine a Bronn vs Jaime duel that would mirror the training scenes they had. But the duel wouldn't be interesting as Jaime stands no chance... Tywin may not overrule the trial, but we don't know how far he can bend the rules to ensure his position...

    Ok, so given that Tyrion is accused by Cersei, if he asks a trial by combat that means him vs her. In any case, Tywin wants Tyrion alive or he loses everything, he's held by the balls. We can reasonably assume that Cersei will name a champion as she wants Tyrion dead. Tyrion can either name a champion to win and be free or stand for himself, thus provoking Tywin into acting. I don't know if there is an order in who pics the champion but both may want to choose Jaime. Cersei can pick him to corner Tyrion who would face a dilemma. Tyrion could answer by standing for himself thus puttin Tywin in an impossible situation (and force him to do something). Tyrion can pic Jaime to corner Cersei and Tywin. I think that either way, picking Jaime will give explosive outcomes. If Cersei wants to ensure victory, picking Gregor Clegane would seem only normal because he's the most fearful bannerman of the Lannister. In this situation, Tyrion won't even have to beg Oberyn to step in for him. Well, you can always imagine surprises with characters that were not really in the spotlight lately. Cersei could pick Loras Tyrell to get rid of him and piss off the Tyrell, she could pic one of the kingsguard... Same for Tyrion... What are your thoughts?

    If Tywin and Tryion both have to pic a champion, could it be that Tywin picks the Mountain, and Tyrion then chooses Oberyn?? Oberyn kills the Mountain et voilĂ !

    How would you rate episode 406?

    I liked the episode, but didn't get this "OMG" feeling before the trial. It's very subjective you know, it can get very little to have me go "omg". To do as other poster did: "The episode is worth "7" until the trial, then that becomes an 8"

    Ok so I give it an 8. Right after seeing it I thought I'd go for a well-deserved 9 or 10, but I'm rating the whole episode and not just the last scene. Been wanting to see Braavos for a while, not disappointed. Nice talk by Davos who actually reversed the situation. The Dreadfort scene was nice! Good to see some fighting and to know how messed-up Theon is now. Yara/Asha running away was only logical, her little commando isn't suppose to bring down House Bolton, but merely to infiltrate. If it wasn't for Theon's transformation she would have succeed. This scene isn't "pointless" at all, Yara just failed! Her departure in the previous season announced this assault, it's only normal we see it happen. I would gladly have had the Ironborn be more badass and the transition to fleeing seemed weird but eh... (btw, a trained and starving hound can take down an armed man easily). +1 for erotic choking of Ramsay. Daenerys gets to grow-up again, learning what it is to rule people, interesting development (so far we have avoided the stupid romance of the first episode). Very nice dialogs in King's Landing, no need to empathize how awesome the trial was. Mace Tyrell is very well acted. Getting the essence of the character without much lines. When Tyrion demands trial by combat, all the actors' faces are awesome, magnificent acting. It's their faces + music that conclude the episode in an awesome way.
