The last 2 episodes have been phenomenal. This show is intense, the good guys die, no one is safe. Jeoffrey just has to be next! No way should that little shit be safe
I think Joffrey's safe at least until he kills his grandfather. No spoilers, just speculation.

I love shows like Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead, where the good guys do get killed and no one is safe. It makes watching the show so much more suspenseful. But I agree, Joffrey better be killed soon. I'm guessing his wedding will be next season. It doesn't seem like there will be time for it next week in the finale.

I dunno, I think I'm having a moment where I feel like writers in general are over-relying on the death of a major character as a shortcut for creating an emotional reaction in the viewers. It's not just this show (or even primarily this show), but between it, Walking Dead, Vampire Diaries- I'm ready for something else other than loss.

And, I think a little bit of balance is missing in the sense that...there was a lot of nothing happening, frankly, and when I reflect on the season the two standout moments are Jamie losing a hand and a massacre. I mean, I'd like something more than that to stick out, y'know?

Eh, I think I need to find more shows where the writers can create suspense without the outcome having to be death. It's not that it's inherently bad, it's just becoming the totality of my scripted drama experiences.

Like the rest of the world, this episode left me in a tizzy. I am so glad I didn't know any spoilers.

Why doesn't George R.R. Martin use twitter?
Because he killed all 140 characters.

I wanna read the books, but I always wanna be a book behind. I want the show to be my first encounter. I am just more of a visual person than a comprehensive reader. LOL.

I have mixed feelings ... so excited for the episode, but devastated at the thought of waiting SO LONG for Season 4!! LOL. Plus, I will have to stay off social media this evening, since I'm on the west coast, and I know half my timeline will be filled with spoilers.

Season finale was underwhelming/boring. So mad I have to wait a year for season 4.

Why do we have to wait ANOTHER year for Season 4? That's too much. Like seriously, I don't understand why so much time.

Well, I also found the finale underwhelming but I do see how they are setting things up nicely to move along.

The Lannister's remain my favorite. Loved the layer they painted tonight when Cersei was talking about her children. Now I get her relationship with Joffrey, from her perspective. Interested to see how Jamie does now that he's back at King's Landing. Also wondering what will happen with Tyrion and Sensa. Have a feeling it's gonna end badly for Shay.

Arya and Daenerys are serious forces to be reckoned with. Love them both.

A whole freaking year???? :frustration:

I'm cool with a year break because this show exhausts me. In a satisfying way, ultimately, just not one I can do for long periods of time without breaks.

I think they're just practical though- the author's not finished with the series, right? I think they're just pacing it to give him time to finish.

The finale- OK. I'm over Theon and ready for the Red Woman and company to get out of the cave/castle/wherever.

Arya...love her. Dany and the dragons- interesting that according to the little girl's storybook the last of Dany's family to conquer Westeros had three dragons when he did so. Those two are really my main hooks in the story at this point, I'm tempted to read the books just to see if they're still alive (so I'm prepared).

Ermagerd! That Episode 9 threw me for a loop. I'm all caught up now. I marathoned the season, but had to stop after Episode 9 because I was walking around dazed. Wow!

I'm glad I haven't read the books (I tried, lost interest) because I doubt think it would have carried that much impact otherwise!

I knew that Robb and Caitlin get killed, so I was prepared for it, but I was still shocked at the way it was done (I didn't know how they die...)
But season finale was pretty underwhelming. But still had good scenes. I was shocked when Ygritte put those arrows into Jon! I didn't think she would do it. And loved Tyrion/Joff/Tywin stuff. Arya killing her first man was good too. Her and Hound are becoming quite a pair.

Looking forward to seeing next season. Should be good.

I'm am so going through withdrawal from GoT. At least I am comforted that the new season is in production.

I'm also excited to hear that Kit Harrington has been cast in a big budget Hollywood film that takes plays during the destruction of Pompeii.
