One of my favorite things about this show is how it makes you never know who to be rooting for. On the one hand you want Stannis to win because Joffrey is such a little cunt. But on the other hand if Stannis wins that means Tyrion loses. I won't discuss further until more people have seen it so as to not spoil anything.

The battle was sick. Some of the plot points were a little different than the book but it was close enough. They definitely did the wildfire sequence differently. Next week's episode is going to have to be jam packed to finish everything from the second book. I wanna see the damn dragons!

Werd!

And yeah, last episode is gonna be huge to get all the other storylines wrapped up. I just hope it doesn't feel rushed. Although I want it to just keep going every week anyway. There were a lot of potentially important deaths, but they never actually show any of them die so hopefully we find out who's still alive next week.

Btw, what does everyone think of the Hound? I like that he said "Fuck Joffrey" but I hope he gets out in time. I've always enjoyed the Hound and I feel like deep down he's a good guy.

Glad they finally showed some action.

Also, most of Cersei's dialog with Sansa was straight from the book.

The hound is not a bad guy. But in the end, he turns craven because he just doesn't like the fire. In the book, the fire created by the wildfire and ships is intense and closer to shore. Also that scene is more at the climax of the battle than the beginning. It was supposed to show what a genius Tyrion was.

Kind, for a weird weakness for a guy who such an formidable fighter. He is willing to take Sansa out of there but she declines. Missing plot line is that she has another plan to get out of there.

That's what I kind of figured. I always want to know this kind of stuff so I wish I was this far in the book, but then again I would rather be surprised by the show than the books.

I mean it's not explained very well why Sansa doesn't just leave with the hound. He could protect her. The scene was just. A little lacking to me.

Actually the end scene with cersei and tommen in the throne room waiting to kill themselves was well done. Pretty thrilling to see who would emerge from the door. I don't think it was in the book.

I also like the hound, but I still like Broon more.

What a crazy episode. I need to finish the finale than I can start the new season!

Return to “Game of Thrones”
