Yeah I figured he would die during an invasion or some kind of rebellion. But the way they did it does make things interesting. Leaves some open questions. I imagine that Tyrion has to be a fan favorite, I know he is one of my favorites. That episode had a couple big events for Tyrion.

Important to note was the George Martin wrote that episode and there's a few things that were different from the book. Jaime wasn't back for the "Purple Wedding." The dialogue between Lady Ollena + Tywin is always very cool to watch, also Cersei + Breanne, Jaime + Loras, Tyrion + Shay, and finally Joffrey and Tyrion. The main focus was Joffrey's petulance all the way through. Poor guy. There hasn't been a good child villain since Children Of The Corn or Salem's Lot. Like everyone I despised em, but I quickly realized that a rich story needs a worthy villain like Commodus in Gladiator. Jackie Gleason did a pretty damn good job in playing young King Joffrey.

So goes the implosion of the Lannisters...

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Your stance on animal rights today is a reflection of your stance regarding slavery in the past.

If there's ever been a better tv adaptation of a good book I sure don't know about it. One minute it's quoting the books word for word, the next someone that's not even in the books is doing something that never happened. Yet it always feels true to the original story. Most of the differences are actually improvements. The hound, Shae, Braun are all more interesting on the show than in the books. I'm sure nobody misses the kettleblacks. Their absence actually makes things more interesting. if I could change one thing I would bring on Strong Belwas.

This is the only thing on tv that I make an effort to see. Everything else I see is just an accident of timing.

I agree, I was looking forward to seeing what he would look like. I think he would have been a great character to include.

Didn't know who that was but I looked up some images and he would have been perfect.

Last weekends episode, "The Mountain And The Viper" was by far the best of the season! Powerful scene after another culminating in the climactic battle which I felt was worthy of any film including the Darth Maul saber duel, Achilles vs Hector, Mr. Anderson vs Agent Smith, Maximus Decimus Meridius vs all, etc. Excellent choreography.

As usual the interior shots of the dialogue between the major characters were phenomenal.

The 'Arya is losing her mind' view people have baffles me lol. She was laughing at the shit the Hound had gone through to get her there safe, and the person that would have paid him for her is dead. She finds it hilarious.

Nothing breaks Arya especially not finding out an aunt she's never ******* met has died.
