I like the other Mountain actor better. but this episode was awesome

Björnsson was a great casting for Gregor

Incredible episode and no wonder why; many scenes were lifted straight from the books.

A little disappointed that Sansa's last scenes were a bit rushed IMO. Would've been nice to see Petyr help her with her snow castle and calm Lysa down a bit more right before the push.

'Your sister' makes more sense for the non book reading audience instead of 'Only Cat', I guess. Just kind of goes to show they don't think too highly of the viewerships' intelligence.

Oberyn is of my favorite characters from the books. That scene between him and Tyrion is one of the best of the entire series.
Reasonnnn - 5/18/2014, 7:22 PM
@ckal I wish he said the original lines as well. ONLY CAT >>>
Reasonnnn - 5/18/2014, 7:23 PM
@ckal Red Viper is the bee's knees.

Didn't think Petyr kissing Sansa would be as weird as it was in the books lol

All hail littlefinger Lord of the vale! Great episode! I really wish this was 2 hours long!

@ckal agreed about the Oberyn/Tyrion scene.. One of the best scenes of the whole series.. I love that dialogue!
ckal - 5/18/2014, 7:35 PM
Haha yes it was really awkward.

I also loved the Tyrion/Bronn scene. A lot of dialogue right from the book.

Some really powerful acting and dialogue this episode. Fantastic character moments.

I was hoping he would push her ass down the hole :)
RichardBoldly - 5/18/2014, 8:00 PM
The Mountain dude is huge as [frick]!!!

That scene with him and Cersei...

Look at the height of the mother[frick]er!!!
antman8o8 - 5/18/2014, 8:19 PM
ugh just sucks what will happen next :(
bropous - 5/18/2014, 8:32 PM
Oh, Tyrion will get his revenge, no matter what.

He WILL be one of the three Dragon Riders: Tyrion, Deanerys, and Arya.

And NO, this is NOT a spoiler, just a speculation, because it has not yet been written.

But it makes sense.

Poison, treachery, and seasickness. And a HELL of a lot of wine.

That's Tyrion's future.

But how in the hell will they bring in Penny, if at all?

I think I've left things pretty shrouded for those who have NOT read the books, and hinted at some things that those who have read them will pick up on.

We'll leave it there, for now.

But DAMN this was a VERY good episode!

The conversation between Bron and Tyrion, and the Red Viper and tyrion, and the scene between The Hound and Arya, are to me some of the besti n the series that do not involve Lord Varys.

To me, Tyrion and Lord Varys are The Greek Chorus of this drama, in television form.
antman8o8 - 5/18/2014, 8:39 PM
well said @Bropous!!
Egg - 5/18/2014, 8:45 PM
AMEN! @Bropous!!

Great! Interesting how they focused on all of the two or three person relationships through-out the entire episode, so we'll done...editing is exceptional on this show!
batz11 - 5/18/2014, 9:00 PM
Thanks @Bro for respecting the non-book readers, I'd love to read them some day, my life doesn't allow for too much "me" time though, ha, ha...

My favorite TV show ever, some day when it's all over, I'll have to go back and watch it all again, hopefully after I've read the books!
Makiveli21 - 5/18/2014, 9:01 PM
I dont think anyones riding on the backs of those dragons. Maybe jon if bran wargs into the dragon. But other than that i dont think these dragons are letting anyone ride them. I think maybe the aegon stories have been exaggerated over time or maybe aegon was a warg and could control his dragons. Either way, the idea of dany, jon, and tyrion riding around on dragons on hbo sounds like it would look corny.
thedangle1 - 5/18/2014, 9:03 PM
Great episode, but they pushed up the death of Lysa from the very end of the book and made it a little too soon. Plus, they ruined it by having Lysa reveal back in episode 5 that she was the one who killed her husband at the behest of Littlefinger. In the book, all that took place at the same time Lysa was trying to kill Sansa by pushing her through the moon door. Instead, they split it all up into 2 episodes. This would've been a much more shocking episode if all of that got revealed, then Littlefinger pushes her through the door, just like in the book. Oh well...much, much more shocking events coming up in the next 3 episodes. Can't wait to see how they play out.

I AM SO [frick]ING EXCITED!!!!!!!!!
Bloodraven - 5/18/2014, 10:01 PM
Finally, we get the greatest one-on-one duel in the series! Shame we have to wait two weeks for it.
KnobGoblin - 5/18/2014, 10:10 PM
There is no new episode next week, they're taking the holiday weekend off. The next episode isn't for another two weeks.
capcyclopsftw - 5/18/2014, 10:12 PM
Book reader here...I don't understand the pompous asshole attitudes of most of the book readers here?
MarkV - 5/18/2014, 10:17 PM
That was a sick scene in the book. One of the best. Hope it will hold up well on screen.
MarkV - 5/18/2014, 10:19 PM

I guess I don't read a lot of comments, not sure what you mean.

One of the great things about Game of Thrones is that the books and TV show have a very similar vibes. And the characters in both seem very much alike. [frick]ing awesome!
MarkV - 5/18/2014, 10:22 PM
[frick]ing books and show are awesome!
loki668 - 5/18/2014, 10:24 PM

Was this your first attempt at trolling? You deserve an award!!

MarkV - 5/18/2014, 10:26 PM

The dragon has three heads.

I don't think the author has left much leeway there: Three targaryans: (yes they are all Targaryans)


Jon Denerys and a certain dwarf
Dunejedi - 5/18/2014, 10:33 PM
I haven't read the books. I plan on tackling them once HBO wraps up the series. I appreciate those that have read the books and don't spoil it for others. Good lookin' out.

Great episode.
FightingCommander - 5/18/2014, 10:42 PM
@MarkV Um, I know Aegon's young, but a dwarf as well? Tyrion's no Targaryen.
ThePresidentGaming - 5/18/2014, 10:46 PM
John Snow's mother is Lyanna Stark Stark.

John Snow's father is Rhaegar Targaryen.

Tyrion Lannister's mother is Joanna Lannister.

Tyrion Lannister's father is Aerys II Targaryen.

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!! WHAT?!?!?!??!?

Saintsinnister - 5/18/2014, 11:51 PM
I think the people who read the books and come here to spoil shit for others are like those who go around telling little kids santa isn't real. I mean good for you, you read a funking book. If you wanna go somewhere and talk about it go join a book club. No reason to come in here and try to ruin shit for the rest of us and act like your better because of it. I like folks who do come and can be resepctful about what they liked and disliked between what has already been seen but for real STFU you pompus pricks, nobody gonna give you a cookie because you read the books.
Kyos - 5/19/2014, 12:16 AM
As someone who has read the books I can't help but agree with those who tell book readers to shut up. Spoiling stuff just isn't cool. :(

Anyways, great episode! I'm still sad we couldn't get Conan Stevens back as the Mountain, because I think he was the best mean older brother for Rory's Hound we had. New guy is a monster, though, so it's okay. ;)

And Lord Baelish has always been one of my top 3 favourite ASoIaF characters. Team Littlefinger! :D

Flysa Arryn.
figuresmaniac - 5/19/2014, 2:02 AM
2 weeks are to damn long
TheLivingTribunal - 5/19/2014, 2:22 AM
I think another great series that should be seen is Steven Erikson's Malazan Book of the Fallen.
Makiveli21 - 5/19/2014, 3:49 AM
I havent read the books but i know about the "dragon has 3 heads, jon/tyrion/dany" theory. And i just dont see that happening. If anybody thinks this story has a happy ending, your crazy. Jon, dany, and tyrion arent riding off in the sunset on their dragons. To portray that in the show would look extra cheesy and thats not hbos style. No one will ride any dragons, unless theres some warging involved.
