    Heartwarming seen with The Boltons I thought. Poor Jorah finally gets the boot. Sansa grows up. And how about the ending. Great show last night.

    The ending last night - holy **** ! ! ! Can't get that scene out of my mind. It has been awhile since I read the book, but I'm pretty sure it was not that, um . . . . graphic. I think he was "only" strangled.

    But I like the imp! He cannot die! On a side note, the M12's really sounded good last knight while watching this episode. IDK why but for some reason I could hear the dialogue through them more then the center. Sound great to me!

    I know they can't show some of the sexual encounters do to the age of the charators, but it appears little finger rung Sansa bells and now she has the woman look about her now. And how are they going to have Arya miss seeing Sansa or will they?

    Yeah, I thought the Hound was gonna kill her on the spot. Maybe Arya will ride a dragon someday. I also liked Sansa's freshly F'd look, and since she never did it with the Imp, that can be annulled if he in fact survives. That ending was awesome, oh boy. Next week should be good. Haven't heard much on several of the sub-plots that will be coming up now I'm sure....

    He's my favorite character. Please no spoilers as I have not read the books, but if he doesn't survive, they could replace his character with John Oates. Did anyone catch him on the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this past weekend? I knew he wasn't a NBA player, but I swear he shrunk over the last twenty years. He looked like a munchkin. Dig his music though.

    Yes, I saw Hall & Oates on the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame show. Hall has some road miles on him for sure. Vulgarities in his acceptance speech also unnecessary. But put him up against anybody in Kiss, though, and he looks like a schoolboy. Whoa. Maybe Ace Frehley could be on deck for the Imp's role if Hall begs off... even if he hasn't shrunk quite as much.

    I think that was more at the hound for he would not get the reward for returning her.

    I have one question about the fight, what happens if both combatn's die from thier wounds? The mountain was down for the count and it appeared with his last bit of strength he killed the prince.

    Just watched it again. That ending is something else. Doesn't matter if they both die, the Prince died first.

    Ok, now I dug how the Prince bought the farm but the fight scene itself sucked....thought they could have done way better. Also, was it just me, or was I hearing shades of "The Princess Bride" ?

    You killed my sister, prepare to die.....The Prince kept saying it and I immediately drew that comparison.

    I thought the same thing, I kept saying "my name is Inigo Montoya, prepare to die" during that scene. :lol:

    Nevermind...there have actually been 2 actors who have played The Mountain. Ian Whyte is 7'1" and Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson who is 6'9".

    There have been 3 actors who've played the Mountain: the two listed above and Conan Stevens, who is also 7'1". Björnsson is the heaviest, and I'm guessing the strongest!

    Now I gotta go and re-watch the episode where Jon Snow does it with the red head in the cave and she drops the furs. This last episode oughta be pretty good: you have lots of stuff converging on the Eyrie; Brienne and Podrick, the Mountain and Arya, then you have Sansa and Littlefinger already inside with the momma's boy. Plus, Daenerys is out there and of course the matter with Tyrion and his father. And what about Stannis? Haven't forgot about him. Fer cri yi.

    Kinda disappointed the whole frickin' episode was about the battle at the wall. Wasn't expecting so many of that clan to bite the bullet though.

    Speaking of John Snow, have they ever mentioned who his mother is ? Ned was suppose to tell him but he had a problem with keeping his head on his shoulders.

    John's mother is disclosed in book #4 IIRC. I don't know why they're including Dany in the season ending episode as there's so much going on in King's Landing. The death of one of the major players (which happens in the book) would make a great season ending exclamation mark !

    Got to sign off now as I feel the urge to disclose major spoilers . . . . :evil:
