NOW THAT IS AN EPISODE! ! ! !

HOT PIE RETURNS ! ! ! ! (Something I expected to happen eventually because he was working at the Crossroads Inn.)

And I called it! I said Lysa signed her death warrant when she married Littlefinger. I saw that coming as soon as it happened. The two things I didn't like in this episode have to do with any glimpse of him winning Sansa over and the Daario / Dany thing. That was a great scene with Dany and Mormont.

And I wish it could have gone differently with Bronn, but I knew Oberyn would be Tyrion's champion as soon as they said The Mountain was going to be who he faced. Oberyn's lust for revenge toward The Mountain has been expressed ever since he appeared as a character. So the answer,

Oberyn vs. The Mountain

And I think that might have been Rory McCann's best scene. You know the one I mean.

And they are doing it right. The more scenes they have with Brienne and Poderick, the more I want to watch the show. Really they could do a whole episode of Brienne and Poderick scenes mixed with Arya and Hound scenes and I'd be happy. I think Hot Pie should have joined them on their quest. :D

Anyway, I really enjoyed the episode. I can't believe there have already been seven! :( And now we'll probably get whatever horrible tragedy they have setup for this season in the next two episodes followed the finale filled with setup for next season. UUUUUUGGGGGHHHH ! ! ! I better not get another Red Wedding! :mad: :rolleyes:

For once, I called most things that happened in this episode while watching, but looking forward to next week!

Peter Baelish: I love Catelyn Stark, i'm going to be responsible for Her husbands death and i'm going to personally be responsible for her sister's death

Oh well Lysa was a psycho anyway, maybe even more psychotic then Cersei, glad she is gone she is definatley no Catelyn Stark

Awesome episode. I was wondering whether they'd bring the story of Oberyn (and his sister) visiting the Lannisters when Tyrion was born... wonderful acting in that scene.

I was surprised by The Hound sharing his story with Arya, but I guess it fits their story line. It also reinforced how horrible The Mountain is (and probably always was), which makes Oberyn's actions even more intriguing.

Did anyone else think the filming was kinda bad when Cersei visited The Mountain? I get they did it to emphasize his size but it just looked silly and kinda had the opposite effect on me.

The glimpse of Hotpie was great! So good to see him again (and that he's well) and I adored that little Direwolf bread he made for Arya. How sweet! As soon as Brienne told him they were looking for Sansa I was hoping he'd tell them about Arya, and fortunately he had the good sense to do so when they were alone (instead of in the bar).

Oh Sansa, how do you keep getting into this mess? I really hated Sansa in the first season but she's really growing on me. She keeps making bad decisions, and why did she not resist that kiss, I can imagine some shock, but this took too long, silly girl. I love her slapping the brat, he had that coming for sooo long.

Thankfully Tyrion has his champion, he deserves one. I still have some hope for him reuniting with Sansa, I know it's naive, but still, it's probably the happiest marriage in the series.

And of course, the wolf pie *happy sigh*

I'm really hoping for Arya to reunite with her wolf, and also meeting Tyran Lanister again, I want to see the look on his face so bad!

I loved this ep.

Loved Oberyn's talk with Tyrion; it was probably my favorite part of the episode.

Loved Tyrion and Jaime's talk. The Tyrion/Bronn scene was great too.

Loved the Arya/Hound scenes(particularly the first one with the old man, Biter, and Rorge).

Loved Brienne, Pod, and Hot Pie(and the wolf bread thing he made for Arya).

I thought the Jon Snow scene was great, but I wish there was more Wall stuff(not just in this ep but on the show in general).

The scene with Sansa and the snow castle looked really pretty. Robin is anything but sweet. His mother is probably the reason he's so deranged, it's probably a good thing she went flying. She was psycho and did horrible things, but I kind of felt bad for her, she was so desperate for Littlefinger's love. Littlefinger + Sansa = Creepy(IMO). Hopefully she learns a lot from him.

Robin is another joffrey in the making

and yeah, you'd think that Sansa would have reacted...but remember that around Joff the only safer thing to do was not to react

.

It did seem a little off when she stood next to him. I think the worst part is that this is now the 3rd actor playing The Mountain, correct?

Yeah what is up with Arya and her wolf? Arya and The Hound were all over the Riverlands and The Neck. That should have been when they were reunited with Nymeria. I think the producers try to avoid anything with the wolves because They don't want to pay for the CG.

I can't wait for the next episode, but we're already so close to the end of the season! :(

You know, reading all the comments has got me thinking.
We see at the small council where they know exactly where Dany is & what she is doing on Esteros, but nobody knows where Arya or Sansa are on Westeros.
And on Dany, she has her army now, why is she not heading for Westeros & the Iron Throne?
Wonder how long it will take before Robin goes flying too. And what will happen to Sansa? Will she stay with littlefinger, throw him out the moondoor, or run away?
So far they are only showing 9 episodes in this season instead of the usual 10, & there is no indication of a 'part 1/part2' scenario.

It really is.

"In another world you could have been my daughter..." (paraphrasing) But hey, you're not, so let's make out.

Dany is out in the open and not hiding what she does. Sansa and Arya are lost. Sansa was smuggled on a ship and smuggled to the aerie where no one knows who she is (although it did seem odd for her to keep referring to be Robin's cousin, etc when she's trying ot fly under the radar)

Arya fell in amongst the 'rabble' of king's landing. She's also going around as a boy not a girl and honestly no one pays attention to random people in the crowds. Sansa going unnoticed is a bit far fetched, however if littlefinger killed everyone that brought her there, well dead men tell no tales.

LOL, I know, right? That's definitely what every girl wants to hear right before a guy kisses her for the first time; it really sets the mood.

I am pretty sure when Sansa was introduced to Robin they told him it was a secret. They are always saying that the Lannisters are after them, but they are safe in the Eerie. I am sure they don't want the Lannisters to know Sansa is there, but at the same time they act like they are untouchable.

Robin was told that it was a secret. I just think if I were keeping a secret identity I would be tossing around Aunt Lyssa where anyone could possibly hear me.

On the show, Sansa is supposed to be pretending to be Littlefinger's niece, so calling his wife Aunt Lysa and her son cousin, would be ok, I guess.

Two weeks until the next episode. Going to be a long wait.

One thing I really liked that I haven't seen talked about was Tyrion in the dark where you could just barely make out his face. I just loved that shot.

Yeah that shot was awesome. And I really hate waiting two weeks, but I also feel like the episodes have just flown by. :(

I think the episode was fantastic! Definitely the best I've seen this season. And can I say how much I'm loving Oberyn Martell. :D I could have cheered when he said he would be Tyrion's champion. All is not lost.

Yeah it was pretty fantastic. This waiting is so terrible. And I can't believe the season is almost over.

BTW, there was talk earlier about the terrible shot of Cersei standing next to The Mountain. I found a photo of the two online and the size difference is quite dramatic.

In that case I don't understand why they made such a terrible shot to emphasize their difference in size? :confused: The difference looks much bigger in that photo than it does in the episode, to my recollection. It just looked so fake in the ep.

Well when you're doing such shots in multiple units every once in a while bad things happen.

I know I've seen some shots in the Maleficent trailer that look quite horrible to me.

It was probably one of those 'looked good on paper' but didn't look good in the execution but there was probably not enough budget or time to redo it.

Well, we've only got 1 more day before we get to see the next episode, so the wait's almost over. :) I agree that it all goes by so fast with only 10 episodes per year. The quality is so good that it's hard to complain, but the waiting...

I didn't see the picture online, but I remember the scene. It worked for me because he's called The Mountain, so he had to get the name from somewhere. :P

Oh, I see now. Totally works for me, but I guess I'm not too picky.
