Thanks for clearing that up about Stannis.

Did I miss a scene in ep 9 where Sansa decides to stay?

I don't know, seeing the Hound cut some jabroni in two with a single stroke of his sword got my nerd boner going.



Thanks for the heads up. Havn't seen the last episode believe it or not. Will do so, soon. Stopped by a bookstore the other day and holy craps...each of Martin's books in the series is like 1,000 pages!!!

Anyways I'm on my Sopranos marathon right now. It's too depressing to think we have to wait another six or twelve months for the next season of the Game Of Thrones!

Once you start reading the books, you'll wish they were longer

Loved the finale. It's going a bit further from the books than I remember, but so far it's working. They're only slight changes that don't really affect the main story (although I'm not sure about what happened to Xaro Xhoan Daxos quite honestly... that could prove problematic later in the series)

That's hardback I take it then? I have them in pocket and I'm pretty sure SOS is the only one who breaks a 1000 pages.

As much as I love Game of Thrones, Sopranos is way better and the greatest television show ever made.

The last 2 episodes have left me confused.

Who burned Winterfell??

why didn't the Stark children seek out the Northerners who had Winterfell surrounded?

Yah I made a whole post and somehow didn't show up. Oh wellz...what Term said should be right. I'd say there's been a bit of double/triple crossing going on.

SPOILER:

For those who've seen it already...wasn't this scene bad ass...lolz! There needs to be 20 episodes per season.

Kinda lackluster final episode to be honest, I knew all along when episode 9 was titled "Blackwater" that it would be the big one, but this still didn't really deliver like I would have hoped. I wasn't terribly impressed by the cliffhanger either, even though it caught me a little bit by surprise, seeing at that doesn't happen until the prologue in Storm of Swords. If they do a "Sam passed out because of the fear and when he wakes up in a couple of hours the Battle of the Fist of the First Men is over" I'm gonna be really pissed. That was one of my favorite battles in the books, and deserves to be played out on screen.

Ser Loras asking Joffrey to marry Margaery strikes me as quite the plot hole. So Mace Tyrell sent his entire army with Tywin Lannister out of the kindness of his heart, without any promises of marriage? Seems hard to believe. Ser Loras should just have asked for a place in the Kingsguard.

All in all I enjoyed the season very much, it's at least on par with season 1 and I'd say it's slightly better even. To the one who said the next season should have 20 episodes, you're dreams might very well come true. I would have to think they would do atleast 15. That book is PACKED.

What I have read is Storm of Swords will get 20 episodes, but it will be two 10 episode seasons.
