Yeah, thought the Varys and Daenerys scenes were particularly great tonight.

Agreed. Personally liked Theon´s character development as well, the actor playing him is sublime IMO.

Agreed, his storyline has been polarizing this season but I love it. Overall, the best episode of the season. All of the scenes at King's Landing and with Dany were perfect.

Re: HBO game of thrones - anyone watching?

good episode though i swear i knew what was going to happen with danaerys and the traitor dude. i don't like how they "play" with you in these series...the bad guy escapes,caught again,escapes,they torture them. yes,no,yes,no...just get them!

justin bieber is not the best in history.
funk was better than rap.
techno not better than classic rock.

numbers are not everything.

I was on social media before watching the episode and read quite a few spoilers by accident. But in retrospect it wasn't as if the slaveholder's fate wasn't predictable.

Fortunately for their respective countries, they don't have any real power.

Well, sir, it's this rug I have. It really tied the room together.

Re: HBO game of thrones - anyone watching?

why did Theon Greyjoy said "my real father lost his head in kings landing"? while a few ep b4 he wanted to kill the starks and betrayed them?


why his father hates him so much?

Re: HBO game of thrones - anyone watching?

He doesnt hate the Starks, I belive he just said what he thinks his captors wanted to hear.

All these things with Theon was not even in the books, it is pretty much the first storyline they have completely invented from scratch. They are trying to make up for not showing the siege of Winterfell properly and not introducing an important character in season 2.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

Re: HBO game of thrones - anyone watching?

PLEASE do not read if you have not watched the episode/ read the books.

A little disappointing Daenerys didn't strike Kraznys in the face with the whip before setting ​Drogon on him But this was an epic episode. The sight of them leaving Astapor with those juvenile dragons flying high above them is just jaw dropping

A sad end to the Lord Commander but they should not have lingered in that cesspool. When reading the books I didn't not feel any pity for Jaime but seeing it visually is different. I feel for him and hate myself for it

Well, I´m going by memory here, but Theon barely appeared in books 3 and 4, right? They probably thought, given the performance the actor playing him has given, that it would be better to expand on his story line and include some of it in season 3 already than to wait for three years to see what had actually happened to him.
