Re: Game of Thrones 3.4 - "And Now His Watch Is Ended" - Rate and disc

I enjoyed this episode but probably not as much as the week before.

That said, there was a lot to relish here. The opening with Jamie's severed hand dangling was deliciously black and the ensuing fight almost made me feel sorry for the bastard. Coster-Waldau is playing him perfectly. I think that out of the quartet of actors as Lannisters, he arguably gets the least amount of praise but he plays the role so well.

Theon is another bastard who I'm almost feeling sorry for and having been a little surprised by what happened last week, I think I know where we're going now. Or maybe not. The scene with Varys and Tyrion was brilliant and I liked the addition of Varys getting his revenge on the man who emasculated him. Then you have the wonderful Twyin/Cersei face-off and the brilliant Diana Rigg, with more Varys (another added scene which played off).

I enjoyed the scenes with the Hound, Arya and the Band, though Paul Kaye is a more rascally and quirky Myros than I imagined, while Dormer's Bedic lacks the pathos and exhaustion that I got on reading the book. Perhaps that will come. I love Rory McCann's Hound, though I've also noted, as did Lone Magpie, the Scottish accent coming through.

As for that ending, well, what is there to be said that hasn't already been said? Scorchtastic!
