    Oh it was the spoiler I was talking about :) I don't know how to do hidden spoilers on this forum but what I read that thing was due to happen very soon. But then as has been mentioned they are dragging the series out a bit over all the characters.

    If graphics are not important why spend so much on a GPU?

    Highlight the text you want to hide and select text colour = white.

    Last nights season finale was a bit weak. It seemed only to serve as a preview of next season and seemed to just ignore most of the events of this current season. None of the characters got very much screen time to do anything and as the episode went on it just got a bit duller. There were some good scenes in there though. The last scene was dreadful I thought though. It felt like it went on forever and during all of it I thought "this really better not be the closing scene"

    BOOK SPOILERS


    They seem to have changed Shae to make her actually in love with Tyrion (or is she super manipulative?). Regardless while it might have the same resolution, I think there's going to be some changes in her plotline.


    I can see why they would do that it makes the eventual betrayel that much more heartbreaking but it does write them in a little bit of a corner in that yeah if she is in love with him why would she betray him


    Yeah, so as alluded to above I was expecting to see another wedding this episode to give TV viewers the same relief that reader's got where they could say "well the Red Wedding was bad but at elast the follow up saw someone get what was coming to them.

    I didn't expect this at all it would be way to much I can see that particular wedding being episode 4-5 and then we get my favourite bit of the book Tyrion's trial pretty much the rest of the season with the big fight probably being episode 9 maybe.


    and I wouldn't be particularly disappointed if they ditch the whole Kingsmoot/Victarion/Euron plotline

    I kind of liked that plotline it was probably the more interesting one.

    Spoilers obv:

    Hmm, I liked it but I'm just not convinced it will fit in well with the more condensed nature of the show (although it may of course be necessary given events at the end of the last book

    Defiance (yeah yeah, I like it :p), You could always get a lovefilm trial and watch the Vikings series. Borgias is starting next week.

    Yeah, Vikings was good. Borgias is a really uneven series, but I watch it nonetheless. Haven't gotten around to the latest episode, but so far S3 doesn't deliver the same way S2 did IMO.

    It was never going to top the previous episode, but certain things needed to be done to conclude everything that happened. The emotional climax between John and Ingrid for example, couldn't wait an entire year. And it seems fitting to end on Daenerys yet again because I'm convinced if there's a main character, it's her. She's been really great this season, the confidence flowing much more naturally. In the books we're given her constant inner thoughts, and it's so freakin' pathetic. I know she's a teenager, but god damn.

    I guess things will start falling apart for her. I guess I see what you mean by the main character but my favouritism for Jon and the others stops me feeling that way. When I actually consider her right, I'm not sure I even want her to win.

    I'm a Davos man, and I thought he was awesome in the last episode. If Davos, Gendry, Arya, Jon, Sansa + Brienne and Jaimie could team up to save the world, that'd be great. The Hound is getting more likeable too.

    John and Ingrid, have I missed something?

    I liked that the last episode didn't have anything really huge happening. Some nice reactions to previous events, a bit of character development and some foreshadowing for the next season, seemed fine to me.

    I'd have liked this episode to be the first episode of next season.

    I felt jipped when Jamie finally gets back home and then nothing happens!

    The Hound is badass. Not quite as badass as Bronn (where is he these days anyway?).

    Yeah, I agree Jesus_Phish.

    Yeah I do believe they even made the pairing of Arya and The Hound so much better in the adaptation then in the book(the book had him not say that much) I hope its the Brienne and Jaime of next Season.

    I liked the episode it was basically plate setting for next year but it had some nice character moments, Davos was great in it and I like the adaptation choice they used for Gendry.

    BOOK SPOILERS

    I'm surprised we didn't get the King Ironborn's death this week it would have definitely bolstered Stannis killing Gendrey because if I remember rightly after the first Davos was like well we will see if the other two die and then once they did Stannis was basically burn him in the fire.

    The final scene was tedious and a bit superfluous, but they needed to squeeze Daenerys in somewhere. And I agree that the Jaime part was terribly underused. However, I really enjoyed the episode. It handled the fallout of the previous episode and set the stage well for the next season. They did the same thing in both previous seasons, so I don't know what people dislike so much about this one. I really like where the show's going.
