Re: Game of Thrones 3.6 - "The Climb" - Rate and discuss

I'm finding this season to be a real drag. I hope the pace picks up because its getting really boring at times. There are far too many plots to cover, with each character getting about 2 minutes of screen time per episode.

Joffrey has hardly been used this season. I know the fate of his character from the books but for me it's just not really going to be as dramatic unless he really gets nasty again (though the final few minutes of this episode kept his role of the most hated character in fantasy right up there).

Theon's story is as boring as hell. He's been prisoner for six episodes. Get on with it.

I wish Samwell Tarly would be killed off. Part of the problem is I don't know his story arc so I don't know how far this will drag on.

On the plus side, Diana Rigg and Charles Dance are two of my favourite actors, so to see them on screen together was great and did not disappoint.

Diana Rigg steals a show for the second time in a week (the first being Doctor Who). Her scheme dancing with Charles Dance was absolutely fantastic and was the best scene in the episode, closely followed by Littlefinger and Varys' verbal joust of their own (and the first one of the season!).

I just wish we had actually seen Tyrion breaking the bad news to Sansa. Poor Sansa.

But it's so damn efficient! He's already diddling the help!

Neglect might suck, but it's gotta be better to be married to a gay guy, than to be married to a different straight guy who doesn't love you.

Well it's not too different from her marriage to Robert except instead of sleeping with other women her husband is sleeping with other men.

The biggest advantage is given how Loras has talked their home is likely to be decorated much more fabulously and her 'husband' would want her to be in the latest fashions.

It's kinda weird how so many things are left to your imagination lately. So many things are implied that might be great to be seen on screen, yet they aren't. Like I think I'd rather see Ros getting killed than any more Jon Snow romance scenes.

On that mountain top when they kissed I could hear Peter Falk, could you hear Peter Falk?































(I could also hear Maria Von Trap.)

If you think this is bad, just wait until we get to books 4 and 5.

Yeah - methinks there's going to be some serious artistic license going on when we get into those teleplays.

That wasn't a mountain top............It was the top of the wall.

How wide is the wall? The section they were standing on at the end made it look like 30 feet at most! That's pretty thin for a wall that's 700 feet tall!

The wall is tapered. At the top it can support 6 or so people walking side by side.

That would ruin the reveal. Sometimes it is better to let the audience imagine a thing, because it will almost always be more terrifying/horrible than what you could show them.

That reveal of what happened to Ros was like a bucket of ice water right down your back.

Seemed pretty vertical to me when they were climbing the thing...
