Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

Yeah, GoT seems to put its "big gut punch" climax episode as the penultimate one of a given season, leaving the final episode as a denouement/coda to wrap up some straggling story lines, show some reaction to the climax and set up some pertinent cliffhangers for the next season. They did the same thing first season by killing Ned Stark in episode 9, "Baelor", and again last year with "Blackwater" - although that one, despite its amazing wildfire and battle scenes, didn't generate nearly as much buzz or viewership because it was aired during Memorial Day Weekend. This is why they postponed "Rains of Castamere" by a week. And boy-howdy, did this one ever generate some buzz...
