Its memorial day weekend - lots and lots of people are out of town. Im not and would rather watch GOT then fight traffic that weekend, but there is it. At least we are all in the same boat folks - two more weeks, then two straight weeks of awesome tv!

This last episode was epic! Although I did scream at Tarley for leaving the dagger .....I thought it was one of the best shows of the series (I do remember that Tarley had several of those daggers that he found so its not a big deal. Plus, if a Nightwalker was after me, I'd run off too!)

[quote=""Ash""]Oh I loved the wall climb. I even enjoyed the little romance at the end; some posters on WIC complained about it, but I thought it was pitch perfect. And that view!

BTW I was trying to imagine 900 feet; how does that translate into, say, a skyscraper? How many floors?

I am very glad that we didn't see Tyrion give his news. Im also glad they didn't do it like they did in the book (she is brought to church, not realizing just who she is marrying, and gets the news when the groom shows up)[/quote]

The break in transmission and the long weekend has given me a chance to catch up a bit - I loved this episode and thought the climbing scenes were spectacular, and the little romantic bit was sweet (if out of character for this show:rolleyes :) and I also liked the little chat between Olanna (?Diana Rigg's character) and Tywin.

[quote=""rebecca""]We have the same here. I have to wait an entire year before I can buy GOT season 3! It's the pits!

And as for
Bec :) [/quote]

Yep I was reading about the things in jars on HBO's website, and apparently they were put in at the suggestion of one of the writers, who didn't think the producers would go for it but they did. It's interesting to see another side to Stannis too, I thought that in the books as well. I do find Melisandre irritating though.

[quote=""rebecca""]I was not really happy with lastnights episode of Game of Thrones. The only standout was Jaime and Brienne.....There is such limited time frame now and I thought Theon's inclusion was truly gross.

SPOILER
I don't know if I'm the only one, but this particular scene sickened me and once I buy the DVD's at least then I can FF Theon's scenes as they add nothing to the show!

I agree, their scenes were fab, and I'm glad the bear survived! And then to round off that ep by playing Rains of Castamere over the end credits, perfect. I agree the scenes with Theon are getting a bit boring, I don't feel sorry for him at all but they need to move the story on. However I have heard that Ramsay is one of the nastiest characters in the books.

He is. I think he out-does Joffrey in sadism. I am at the point that I'm simply going to close my eyes during their time on screen. The scenes between Theon and Ramsay is simply too ugly, too graphic and to be honest, it is pointless.

Finally caught up with episode 8 yesterday; I loved drunk Tyrion, and Sam's scene at the end.
