Ghost wind Posted April 24, 2014 Share Posted April 24, 2014 I think having an entire episode fully focused on a massive attack on Castle Black which comes from both sides simultaneously where a huge SFX and practical effects budget has been allocated which will include multiple one-on-one faceoffs (Jon/Styr, Thorne/Tormund, Giant/somebody, Ygritte/most likely little boy who's father she killed, Sam saving Gilly etc) is more than what any fan of that storyline could ask for. They're delaying things in order for the attack to be on a much larger scale and provide a sustained focus whereby we get to see all the characters interact and have a dramatic climax (the arrival of Stannis) all in the same episode. If you get over the "it didn't happen this way in the books" aspect, then you should really be looking forward to how this will play out. You're getting a "Blackwater" dedicated solely to Jon. If it happens as you say the episode would be great yes, but that "Blackwater" dedicated to Jon could only happen in E09 if you see the names, and what are they going to do in 6 episodes exactly? Because they already set up that the wildlings are marching on the wall from the South so they will have two different attacks and if they divide it there is no way that with the changes they are doing, the scenes can be of such an impact as they were in the books. Also if they divide it then it has no sense to do what they are doing now. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
