    Good to see in this episode, as happens in the books, Sansa starting to play the game.

    Was hard to watch as well the end of the red viper even though I knew what was coming whichever a compliment to the actor who portrayed him brilliantly.

    In the Book I was like, whatever.

    Ayra laughing was priceless, the look on the guards face after she started laughing was WTF lol.

    And agree Sansa with the dark hair looks rather appealing, Littlefinger became Bigfinger very quickly.

    I can't believe non of you picked up the spoiler from Lord Baylish as he was talking to Sansa about how people die "in all sorts of ways...".

    Chook.

    First 15 minutes was a complete waste of time. Rest of the episode pretty good.

    Book 5 sucked too. He could cut out half of book 4 without changing the 'necessity' of it.

    I thought the purpose was the metaphor to gods killing men like Orson killed the beetles. Well that's what I took from it. Took forever though.

    How's the battle going to go? It seemed that from what Jon was saying, Mance and Tormund would get there at the same time. In the book Ygritte was to ambush Castle Black and take out the men so Mance could get through easily.
    Tormund sure must be taking his time, especially when Ramsay went to Moat Cailin and then to Winterfell in this episode.

    What about Tyrion and Jaime's little chat about words for certain acts;-)

    alot of people found tyrions speech meaningless, not sure why.

    He used to sit and watch this giant simpleton smash bugs to nothing and wonder why, unknowingly to him that a simple giant would smash his champions head like a bug.

    I saw an interview with him, and was surprised he had an American accent.
    Apparently he's originally from Chile, so maybe thats the inspiration for the accent in the show


    If they both die, perhaps Tyrion gets to live :sarcasm:

    I'm 100% confident that this series will turn to shit after all the good characters are killed off, and we are left with a couple of boring nobodies fighting over the iron throne.

    If only there were some kind of blueprint that the show could follow. One that assured that there were always good characters left.

    Somebody should write a book or something, just so they know which direction to head in.

    I used the word "series" for a reason. Mr. Martin has a hard on for killing off his good characters, it's only a matter of time before Tyrion gets eaten by a dragon or some shit.

    That's a bit harsh. I would argue that currently there are several good characters still alive and kicking. Arya Stark, Petyr Baelish, Tyrion Lannister, Jaime Lannister, Jon Snow, Young Griff, and my boy, Stannis to name a few

    I actually take back all the good characters dying, Baelish will win when everyone is too stupid to realise they shouldn't trust him. :crazy: Apart from him though, all the others are goners.

    Brunette Sansa = Hot.

    Arya = Hilarious

    Dornish pansies = dead.

    Sir Friendzone Mormont = LoL

    Tywin = f**k I hate him, but god it must suck seeing every evil plan getting buttf**ked at the last hurdle. This man is so close to getting all he wants but everyone inadvertently conspires against him.

    The storyline in the books aren't done chronologically but concurrently so don't know why we'd expect the series to be any different.

    Otherwise how would we expect my main man Stannis to be in Braavos in ep 7 then a couple of episodes later sho.....
