    what ?

    Only one mammoth? Only two giants?

    - I just found out that they used a 7foot7 basketball player to be the giant, so it could not have been a special effects budget thing. Would have been cool to see more giants.

    I thoroughly enjoyed that episode. Even while asking Wood's question, several times throughout.

    the giant shooting the giant bow and arrow was pretty cool

    Alliser Thorne just became a badass in my eyes. I have tons of respect for him after that episode. He showed that while he is a massive tool, he is a great military commander. I NEVER got that sentiment from the books. Kudos, D&D!
    Also, Sam just showed he has some moxie as well. Seems it was a show of character growth from many angles. Jon steps up and is becoming more and more the leader. "Kill the boy and let the man be born."
    Isn't it gratifying to see Sam show more courage than that douchecanoe Janos Slynt. Boy, I hope they don't fuck up "Edd, fetch me a block!"

    I'm tempted to watch that battle again. Only one episode left!

    All I'm going to say about "Ser" Janos Slynt

    After Joffrey, he's the next character whose death I'm particularly looking forward to.

    This might amuse Game of Thrones fans. George R.R. Martin's fan letter in a 1961 issue of The Fantastic Four:

    And the Paul Gambaccini referred to is the DJ

    Well, that was good. And now we've got to wait ages again. Goodbye, Season Four.

    fight between The Hound and Brienne of Tarth
    was fucking great. Reminded me a bit of
    another classic HBO fight: Dan vs. Hearst's handler in Deadwood

    (spoiler hiding is for book theory things in this post)

    My main issue with that fight scene is that I had this sort of hope that
    when Brienne goes to the Quiet Isle we would get a quiet sort of Hound cameo, because he's there alive working as a gravedigger. But if she's already fought him and knows what he looks like it seems increasingly unlikely that he will be coming back. I mean, it already was sort of wishful thinking, but I have a hard time letting go of the idea that Sandor Clegane is there.

    The writers are also not including Lady Stoneheart, because in a book with dragons, ice zombies, and people who can ride the mind of wolves, the writers just can't figure out what to do with
    Zombie Cat

    So them fucking up that later scene you mention? Not outside the realm of possibility.
    • CommentTimeJun 20th 2014
    I'm still hoping she'll be in the beginning of the next season, despite what's been said in interviews and stuff. Lady Stoneheart is just so important for so many reasons. I can't imagine why anyone wold think it's a good idea to stray so incredibly far from the source material.
    But I was definitely sad she didn't pop up at the end there. I watched through the credits, waiting and hoping, but it's not a Marvel movie, I guess.

    I think she will make an appearance next season as well. Hoping.
