That was another good one - lots of snarkiness abounding. Good opening fight. Damn shame we didn't get naked Brienne...

The wildlings will probably be cleaner than the average person in Westeros, for the practical reason of not wanting to let scent give them away when hunting/raiding/hiding...

I think the poll only needs the ratings 'excellent' and above average'.

Ygritte did know where the jacuzzi was and asked him about it first lol... and assuming the Westerosi are as clean as their medieval counterparts here, it's a wash, if you'll pardon the expression.


I think this was the first ep since the S2 Renly/Loras shaving scene with more male nudity than female.

Just rewatched it, and it is a very interesting episode... I found it notable that they didn't have Tyrion make a better showing against the Queen of Thorns - given the ease with which she's handled Varys and the Imp, I'd like to see her verbally overpower Littlefinger and get the hat trick.


...and do we know that the same actor is playing Walder Frey? It's been a couple of years and that might mean a recast but I thought he was appropriately sleazy, I'd like to see him back.

Yeah, the blocking was pretty obtrusive, took me out of the scene as I was having real world thoughts like "someone has a nudity clause in their contract".

I voted Above Average after a few Excellents the last few weeks. This was a very good episode but the bar has been set so high now.

Highlights included the Hound/Beric fight (Rory McCann is brilliant in that role and Dormer is now growing on me in his role), the scene with Tywin putting his children in their places (the tables being turned on Cersei was particularly funny) and Jamie's reveal to Brienne about killing the mad king. As with last week, Coster-Waldau shone really brightly and totally nailed that scene, one of Jamie's best in the books.

And of course, there was Ygritte in the nuddy (but I'm pretty sure that Brienne had a bum double).

Added for your amusement.

If Game of Thrones took place on Facebook - "Kissed by Fire"

The fetuses in jars weren't in the books.

I thoroughly enjoyed this one, dark and political. Several scenes gave me the chills knowing what was to come.

^I suppose when you sign someone of the calibre of Diana Rigg, you want to make the most of her (rightly so and luckily for us viewers).

Best recaps ever, for someone who hasn't read the books I get a little lost sometimes and find these honestly useful and frickin' hilarious, a great combo.

Another strong episode. I voted above average for this one. The opening duel was great. There were some moving Arya moments and the Jaime/Brienne bath scene was great. I was surprised the Brienne nudity was so coy given that Gwendoline Christie has posed buck naked. Rose Leslie is skinnier under all those layers than I thought she'd be. Emilia Clarke really rocks the fake languages. Shireen was endearing and her singing over the credits was haunting.

Edit to add: this episode drew 5.349 million viewers for its initial airing. To date every episode this season has set a new series high in the ratings. So far this season the show has averaged 13.4 million viewers per episode when repeats and HBO Go are factored in.
