Strong candidate for my favorite episode, too.

I really loved that sequence at the end. That was followed by the unsullied leaving the city in centurion formation. The show is pretty much a lock to win Emmy cinematography, costuming and FX.

Daenerys was awesome, and the end sequence was one of the best of the series. I agree this was one of the best episodes of the show. The end sequence helped, but throw in the mutinty at Craster's keep,Theon's little surprise, and Varys and Lady Olenna's meeting and you had one hell of a episode.

Evey scene tonight was excellent. Dany pulling a Spartacus at the end was just the cherry on top.

Fantastic episode.

The crasters keep and Dany scenes were epic. Also loved the Jaime and Varys scenes.

Episodes like this make me wish I never read the books cause....

Spoiler: show
I would take much more enjoyment in Danys takeover not knowing that she's eventually going to screw shit up by trying to become Mother Teresa. Or at least I think she screwed things up in the book. Of course, the show may take a different path.


Also, Varys showing Tyrion his "hostage" was actually probably my favorite moment of the episode. His entire speech leading up to the reveal was amazing.

They are probably going to change
Spoiler: show
her story after her takeover of Meeren. My problem isn't she is too kind, but she just sits around and doesn't do anything other than be romanced by Daario.

Spoiler: show
There's a lot of issues with Dany in the book IMO. Her banishment of Jorah is stupid, her stating at Meeren was stupid, her feelings for Daario were stupid, her locking the dragons was stupid, her second marriage was stupid, etc.

I actually sort of connect Dany and Cersei: two women who know how to take power but don't know how to properly use it and maintain it.

Really I blame that on Martin
Spoiler: show
I think he wanted to delay Dany to get to Westros for various reasons and really couldn't figure out what to do with her. I suspect she will be on the move in the next book.

The scene at the end with Daenerys and the slaves was just perfect. Emilia Clark was a perfect choice for Dany. Very powerful scene.

I may be misremembering something but didn't Arya actually said Tywins name in the book?

Post Re: Game of Thrones:Season 3
Well, I wanted to wait till the season is over to watch it as a whole (i did that with the first 2 seasons) but I wasn't able to wait. :( Now I'm waiting in pain for the next episode. Watching it as a whole is so much better.

My favorite part so far are probably the Jaime/Brienne scenes. Those two work really well with eachother. Maisie Williams (?) grew A LOT on me, and someone here said she should get an Emmy nomination. I second that. She's just a joy to watch.

I don't think so, she might have thought about using him, but never gave his name to Jaquin.

It took all four episodes, but I'm back into it now. I know I'm not adding anything new, but Three and Four were especially great.

Great scene by Jaime Lannister recounting why he became the kingslayer. Also the show needs more screen time for Dragonstone, we are barely getting any Stannis and Davos on the show.

It was a great episode, especially between the opening scene, Jamie recounting killing the madking, and the end scene. I really enjoyed it. Of course, Jon got his best scene so far. They have really done nothing with him lately.

Best episode in a long while. Loved the beric vs hound battle, Arya scenes, Jamie and the final scene with Tywin and his kids.

Anyone one think that they may end this season with
Spoiler: show
Joffreys wedding
?

I doubt it considering the timeline will conflict with the introduction of Oberyn Martell. Remember he was one of the guest at the weddings and was pretty much only invited by the Lannisters to try to make amends to the Dornes.

Yeah I don't see that happening. I think the ending will be

the birth of Lady Stoneheart that would be a huge shocker, especially for non-book readers

They probably will but I think it's too soon. They should wait until early season 4. A lot happens before that scene in the book and they won't be in until season 4.

Well,
Spoiler: show
she was resurrected two days after her death, and it would fit timewise. I can't see them showing her resurrection in season 4 because realistically her body would be a skeleton after that length of time. I guess they could decide not to show it and they just reveal her a zombie next season, but I think they want to show Beric's death. And so that leaves either showing it at the end of season 3 or flashbacks

I would wager a ton of money that we're gonna end with

Spoiler: show
Stoneheart
.

It's the perfect shock ending, and the timeline fits. Season 4 is going to be a mix of A Storm of Swords, A Feast for Crows, and A Dance with Dragons. It isn't just going to be the last chunk of Book 3.

Post Re: Game of Thrones:Season 3
I understand about Season 4 being a mix of the three books which is fine - i didnt realise
Spoiler: show
Lady Stoneheart is resurrected so soon after she is killed as so much happens between the RW and the end of the book/Stoneheart that I thought more time had elapsed
.

Its been almost a decade since i read the books so I guess you guys are right.

I liked this episode even more so than last weeks, mainly cause we get some of my favorite moments of the book (Robb beheading a dude, Jon Snow banging in a cave, Hound fight, and Jamie's reveal).
