Nah, I actually wasn't huge on this episode either. I thought the giants were cool, but I really am not very interested by the wildling conflict. The ice zombies are the only intriguing thing, but they've been a bit too vague in that to really retain my interest in that regard, either.

Also, the Ygritte/Jon subplot was always painfully uninteresting to me and the Sam/Gillie subplot was also excruciatingly boring. Just wasted screen time that could be spent on more interesting characters.

Glad we're in the same boat. I'll be honest I am one of those people who skips over the stuff I don't care about:

-Bran and three eyed raven, its such a slog and such a bore, skip, will watch some pieces if its looks important otherwise, stop talking and shut up

-Jon and the Wall, not everything, will watch some pieces, but then I skip

-The lady and the guy who is trying to claim the iron throne, and she had a demon baby, I skip

Yeah....I sound like an asshole.

I'm hoping that the next episode will be a strong, plot-heavy finale that puts us in good stead for the next series.

I've liked this series a lot, but so far this year it's felt a lot like they've had too little plot to spread over too many episodes and too many viewpoints, and that the show's suffered for it a little.

Finale will be extra long (66 minutes) and it's the show's Emmy submission for Best Writing - so clearly Benioff and Weiss are confident it's a good one.

Hopefully it is Tyrion-plot-thread heavy.

She was gonna shoot Jon anyway, she was pulling back the bow more just before he was taken out.

Damn if I don't adore Sam. I didn't like him at all when he was first introduced, but he's one of the most understated characters on the show, and he has this soft exterior which hides a core of absolute iron.

Really, he was the shining star of this episode, not Jon. Not that Jon was bad, but Ygritte and Sam were much more interesting to me.

That scene could have been so much more powerful if they included the entire scene from the book. Kind of disappointed that it didn't.

Really good episode. Loved the Arya and Hound scene. Tyrion was good as always. And while I've been a big fan of Daeny, this season has made her look really bad. She went from tied at number 1 down to 4th on my favorite characters list.

freaking epic, Tyrion killing Tywin is pure poetic justice! Next season we'll see Arya's adventures in Bravos, paving her way to become a badass swordswoman. But goddamn, waiting on a whole year for the next season is going to be painful.

Oh yeah, and Brienne vs the Hound was awesome. Some really cheap shots from both sides, and the Hound got flipped off a freaking cliff!

my god, Brienne got cunt punted. i had to pause to stop laughing. but that's one way to tie up those story lines. it seems like they jammed a lot of stuff into this ep though. guess they kind of had to in order to start the store lines for next season.

Bran is finally doing something cool. good for him!

That maybe so but lets not forget that Tywin was the only one holding Kings Landing together and with him gone that leaves Cersei in charge and she's just been a walking ball of stability lately hasn't she?...

If you're referring to what happened to the dragons I ask what else was she suppose to do? one of them had already killed a child and as they've grown they've become harder to control. Locking them up was her only option and you can tell it really hurt her to have to do it.

Yea, what she did to what's his face without giving it any thought brought her down a bit on my list.

To be fair had Jorah just been up front with her earlier he could've minimize the damage done.
