Re: Game of Thrones 3.3 - "Walk of Punishment" - Rate and discuss

'Above Average' for me - the best episode of the season, so far. Also the funniest episode in a long time.

I thought the Pod stuff (and council chair scene) was hilarious... a great contrast to the otherwise grim material.

^^^ Agreed. I didn't find it embarrassing or out of place at all. I definitely think they're trying to lighten the mood in an otherwise dour atmosphere. As anyone who has read the books can attest, Westeros and Essos are generally dark and unhappy places in which to live.

Yeah, the scene where Pod returned really made me laugh when you consider how much Tyrion and Bronn usually have to give up in gold for the prostitutes that they see.

I don't object to lightening the mood. I do object to sticking a few minutes of a bad teen sex comedy into something that pretends to be a serious and realistic drama.

I thought the Pod bit was great! I like the little comedy scenes, this one and the one last week between Tyrion and his girlfriend. A little levity is refreshing.

That ending...wow. As Jamie was talking I didn't think the other guy was really buying it. I wonder if he'll get an attachment.

Giving up a dragon...that's some high stakes she's playing. I imagine she must have some kind of plan, I know she's desperate but it's difficult to believe she would give up a dragon so easily.

Yeah, that's along the lines of what I was thinking.

"Pretends"? Really? (sound of credibility rushing out the window)

Cersei carrying the chair was hilarious, I bet that was the most physical work she has done in her entire life.

Game Of Thrones was good again - but annoying that we didn't get a proper "what happened" with Brienne and Jamie after last week. Loved the Tyrion/Bronn/Pod scene - lots of lovely ladies, but somehow Brazilian bushes don't look right in a medieval setting...

On Spartacus they had a pubic hair make-up artist.

Considering this show has gone 'south of the equator' probably only trailing Spartacus maybe it would have been a position worth having lol.

Oh man, I was in tears during the end credits. THE BEAR AND THE MAIDEN FAIR, FUCK YEAH! Totally anachronistic, yet so hilarious.

Was hotly anticipating Jaime losing the hand. Here's where his character arc finally starts to get interesting. I voted above average, simply because even greater stuff will be happening next week. A Storm of Swords started out slow, but once it got rolling...

Oh, god, I could barely watch that last minute. I knew it was coming, but I just didn't know when. So, so horrible ...

Other than that scene, it was a pretty good episode. Nothing fantastic yet, but they're doing an excellent job at laying the groundwork for the rest of the season. And the Blackfish is, no surprise from this show, superb casting.

Was that supposed to be Vargo Hoat or someone else, out of curiosity? I don't recall a name being mentioned other than Jaime's recognition of the Bolton banner. If it was Hoat, I'm curious why they got rid of his signature lisp. And no mention of either the Brave Companions or the Bloody Mummers?
