Surprised everyone in here disliked the finale though. Much like season one, the climax of the season came in episode 9. Maybe that has something to do with it.
i wasn't one of them. i loved the finale and overall season 2 was much better than season 1 were everything was spoon fed to the viewer.

They explain it so much better in the books
Thanks. What's the exact threat that the Wildlings pose anyway? They just seem like a bunch of nomads with weapons.

I thought the nudity was way more gratuitous in season 1. Agree re. Dany though. I'm glad she finally did something in the last episode after spending the whole season whining and posturing and being annoying.

I love this series. The books are amazing, and the tv show has been almost as good.

I'm in the camp that Season 2 is better than Season 1. The showrunners stuck to the main story but also found the confidence to make changes when necessary to make better television and the story more accessible to non-readers. Many of the changes were really good like Arya/Tywin for example. Then again, I've never been one to care about changes to source material as long as the major storylines aren't altered. It makes it more interesting to me in some ways.

I think Alfie Allen, Sophie Turner, Peter Dinklage, and Lena Headey were the real standouts this season but everyone was great. Can't wait for Season 3, it will be crazy.

Alfie Allen really gave Theon some soul this season. Definately one of the best performances in season 2 in my opinion.

Hated him when he took over Winferfell but the little brother of Lily Allen gave me my sympathy for Theon back.



How awesome was this?

Theon is Lily Allen's brother?

That speech was great...especially the completely unexpected club on the head.

She even wrote this song about him in 2007, about him being lazy and useless.


And watch him now, might as well snatch an Emmy for his performance as Theon

Yes, that speech and knock out was awesome and hilarious.

It would be awesome if Alfie got nominated for an Emmy because he really deserves it, if I had to choose it was probably my favorite performance from this past season. That scene between Theon and Luwin in the finale was both heartbreaking and hilarious at the same time with the horn blower. However, I think a repeat for Peter Dinklage is probably the only acting award the show will get.

I agree - the Theon/Luwin scene was fabulous. I spent the whole season hating Theon and that was the first time he came across as sympathetic. Peter Dinklage is awesome; Tyrion is my favourite character by a mile. He steals every scene he's in for me, aided, no doubt, by his character's hilarious lines.

Not much chance for anyone but Dinklage in supporting actor as the category is pretty stacked. I doubt he will win again though, as this year Aaron Paul will be eligible again.

The size of the cast works against them when it comes to awards sadly. It's like The Wire, it had brilliant performances across the board, yet no one was ever nominated.
