Gave it a 10, for me personally the best episode so far - even did beat the Nights King.



I personally don t care if the Hizdahr story is altered, I think it will lead to the same point in Mereen, the battle of fire...I think the Harpies story is not soooo important - in any case they did not introduce the Green Grace so far, so I think they will leave it out, but it is not essential for the progress of the story.



Once again I was impressed by the overall brilliant acting! Arya, the Hound, Littlefinger, Sansa, Bronn, Tyrion, the Red Viper...they all rocked!



I was so touched by the sequence of heartbreaking scenes at the end: first the goodbye of Bronn and Tyrion, then the Red Viper and Tyrion (absolutely brilliant!) and then ...one of my favorite scenes from the books - Sansas Snowcastle and Lysas flight...I was close to tears after all those scenes!



Well, now we know how the Hound received his mortal wound, he will die for his fear of fire at last cause he did not let Arya burn his wound. They became pretty close again those 2, the Hound even told her his story!



The only big negative plot for me was the absence of the singer Marillion in the moondoor scene: I wonder what story Sansa and LF will tell to explain Lysas flight....well but it also ends speculations that Marillion is still alive somewhere and still has some role to play....



In any case: for me personally this episode was brilliant!

Finally an episode for book readers! Loved this episode. Thought it was the strongest of the season so far. Pascal and Dinklage owned it! Finally a good scene between the two of them.


The Mountain scene was cartoonish to say the least, but that was my biggest problem.


Not the least bit bothered by the lack of "action". I personally don't watch this show for boobs and random acts of violence. I love the story and the characters. Which D&D don't really seem to care about anymore.


Wish more episodes this season were this loyal to the story.

Overall this was a very strong episode...nothing is perfect, but this one was good. Any of the scenes in the jail cell were nailed.



Sansa/Castle/Robin seemed a little rushed, but was done very well. I would have preferred seeing the giant because of the theories involved around foreshadowing, etc but they did it well.



Moondoor...didn't like they didn't use "Only Cat" & the scene also felt rushed but in the end Lysa did fly. Course for me this is a point where the journey of this one didn;t live up to the destination.



Arya/Hound v Rorge/Biter....I'll be disappointed if the bite is what takes him down & Rorge standing there to get stabbed was weak, but the Arya/Hound dynamic is great.



Mel/Selyse...that was interesting. Said it somewhere else, sort of let on that some of Mel's powers come from powders & vials...



8/10.

Welcome to the boards! :cheers:

Yes, it was really true to the book.

The first 30 minutes weren't terribly interesting or exciting. Lovely to see Hot Pie once again (quite liked his kidney pie speech). The "only cat" scene was really good, even though he didn't actually say "only cat" and Sansa didn't actually hear the "Jon Arryn" reveal. I'm really surprised that they added the Sansa/Petyr kiss though, because she was only 17 then. But the scene that was absolutely perfect, was the interaction between Oberyn and Tyrion. Perfect acting from both of them. Too bad next episode will be Pedro Pascal's last, because he's been really enjoyable to watch these last couple of episodes.

I don't think there's any problem with a minor kissing an adult on screen (if she's even considered a minor at 17). "Interview with the Vampire" had a little girl kissing Brad Pitt, iirc.

Ah yes, but after they somewhat softened the Sansa/Hound scenes, I thought they would do the same with this one.

Oberyn/Pedro absolutely amazing! Can't wait, yet dreading the return from the Memorial Day break!


Sansa/Castle/ Littlefinger equally amazing with a touch of creep factor. Didn't mind the 'Your Sister' at all.


Only part that was meh for me- Cersei's walk thru guts/Mountain slaughter fest. That and 'take off your clothes' Daario


scene.

An 8. Would have been lower probably, since there were a few slightly awkward scenes, but Tyrion and Oberyn boosted it with their performance...and as usual, Daenerys' beauty was enough to make me happy as well. I'm not even a massive Dany fan, but Emilia Clarke....that woman is beautiful. Makes me hate the new Daario actor even more, because he gets to be with her. Bastard. :D

You are right, she show misses a lot of the details (Sansa slaying the giant, the story why Oberyn and Elia were visiting the Rock etc...) but most of that is due to the fact that the show could never show all the details of the 5 books - the show has to tell the story in a much simplier way. Nevertheless the direction is the same, books (if ever finished!) and TV show will come to the same bittersweet ending - GRRM would never allow the show to have a different ending to his forseen ending!

But I can only advise only-show-watchers to try to read the books eventually (take your time - GRRM does with the last 2 books :p ) if you really want to warg into those wonderful characters and slip into the world of Westeros/Essos!

Voted a 7. Pretty decent episode, excited for the next one. Not going to be on for 2 weeks though, right?



Thought it was pretty exciting, liked the scene between Petyr and Lysa, though it all happened a bit quick. Same with the scene between Tyrion and Oberyn.

The Dany and Daario scene seemed like it was cut from a bad porno...probably something titled "One Knight in Daenerys". I seriously kept expecting Daario to pull out a wrench and announce that he was there to fix her pipes.

This was funny. QFT. But I think it was my only criticism.

This was an excellent seven for me. The dialogue and acting in the final two seasons were exquisite.

He seems to be angry. He seems to channel everything that disturbs or elated book reader fans. Ser Pounce. Only Cat. Neck wound. He livetweets @AngryGoTFan. His TS is sort of the Id of the forum.

The first Arya/Hound scene sucked, mostly because of Rorge and Biter, but the second one was great IMO. The Mountain scene was odd and cartoonish and the Dragonstone scene was also odd and seemed like an excuse to show some boobs. Jon was meh.

I loved Hot Pie, Aiden Gillen was great as Littlefinger and every Tyrion scene was fucking amazing.

I think he's parodying book readers. At least I hope he is.
