Game of Thrones 3.3 - "Walk of Punishment" - Rate and discuss
 
Rate and discuss (with spoilers for the episode, but not for forthcoming episodes) "Walk of Punishment", airing on the 14th April on HBO and on the 15th April on Sky Atlantic.

What an odd mix of nasty and comedic... a very strange overall tone, or tones. Looking forward to non-readers' reactions to Dany's offer and the "unkindest cut of all" there at the end. :evil:

The cutting of Jaime's hand and then the song coming in is the greatest moment ever and I will hear no argument to the contrary.

Until they match up Dany and the Crazy World of Arthur Brown, at least.... ;)

Good job. Another first.rate episode. Theons storyline is different than I remember from the books....

I'm glad he gave Brienne a hand there, hey-oh

The Stannis/Melisandre scene was just embarrassing as was Tyrion/Pod, although I did like the nod to GRRM's infamous Meereenese Knot.

Quite liked the Jaime/Brienne stuff though and I loved actually hearing Rhaegar get mentioned since S1.

I totally expected that chopping. However, I didn't expect it to be that sudden.

I'm guessing that guy helping out the Greyjoy is the son from wedlock? Has anyone seen the Bastard? As I watched Theon's escape... I had the horrible feeling that the whole thing was a long torture by the sweeper.

Gah - everything will be even worse!

Jaime losing his hand was definitely shocking. I can't imagine Robb will be particularly happy about it not to mention they've just made the shackles useless. Jaime made a good try of talking his way out of the situation but he's definitely no Tyrion.

For Daenerys I suspect
I have read up through A Clash Of Kings though so I might have an unfair advantage in that guess.

This. So very much.

I nearly peed myself laughing when I realized what was going on.

I totally get what they were going for with the song thing and that kind of tonal dissonance works really well for me sometimes, but the problem here is just that I don't think it's a very good version of The Bear and the Maiden Fair. Last year's The Rains of Castamere was a great rendition where as this just felt jumbled, awkward and more obviously "putting-the-book-lyrics-to-music" than a song in its own right compared to TRoC.

Or maybe it's just cause I don't like punk. :rommie:

Finally! "The Bear and the Maiden Fair" has arrived! And the punk/thrash version at the end right after the cut was awesome - and totally unexpected... :D

This. I skimmed this thread before watching the episode and wondered how on earth a scene with Pod could be made embarrassing. Now I know.

Otherwise a decent episode, although I think the slow pace is starting to hurt the quality a little.
