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

Ooh, that was a good Thrones episode - the Dany/slavers storyline went *exactly* how I predicted it would last week - I wonder what's Valyrian for "yippee-ki-ay, motherfucker"?

Nice to hear Varys's story from the second book, and his scene with Diana Rigg was great. And Charles Dance fucking rules, as always. (Actually, I'm wondering how they're going to go with who's responsible for Joffrey...)

Mind you, I also notice Rory McCann has totally given up on trying to hide his accent as the Hound! He was very Scottish tonight...

That last scene would have made a fantastic season finale scene - and I hope that music track is going to be on the season 3 soundtrack

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

I'm busting out the excellent rating for this one. Hell of an episode. Varys and the Queen of Thorns were screen magic together. The set for the interior of the Sept of Baelor was awesome, as were the exterior shots that made great use of the Croatian locations. The ending was epic - the shots, the FX, the performances, and the music all came together perfectly.

not that I recall - his speech is in the second book, but not the boxed wizard...

And grandma tyrell in the books?
She's in the books, yeah. Though Diana Rigg is cooler

Dany's solution was utterly predictable yet incredibly awesome. Best end scene for ages!
Yeah, I figured from the get go she could understand them but it was still fun to see it all play out.

No, that talk isn't in the books.

Neither Varys nor Olenna are POV characters, so we wouldn't have seen any talks between them in the books.

Anything that takes place without one of the POV characters present (Which would be Jon, Catelyn, Bran, Arya, Sansa, Sam, Dany, Theon, Davos, Tyrion & Jaime at this point I'm not mistaken) would be either assumptions made from their later conversations or invented for the show.

The non-POV moments the show has made are pretty good. I loved that bit with Robert and Cersei in Season One.

They're about 50/50 in my book. More than a few have been really quite awful.

I thought this was the best one this season so far. Great ending and great politics.

I don't recall the box wizard from the books at all, correct me if I'm wrong. Not that I'd put anything past Varys so it seems quite plausible.

Awesome episode. Loved every moment between varys and queen of thorns. And the ending was just brilliant.

The ending was obvious but awesome. That whole storyline had me waiting for the other shoe to drop, and boy, did it ever drop.
