The ending sequence was almost exactly as I suspected, even with the pull back, ha! There's no way this week's could've been as good as last week and I think the show went the right way with using it as a somber look back at the season instead of trying to play it up as some sort of huge cliffhanger.

The final scene was what I hoped it would be. Count me in for season 2.

My only complaint is that the King in the North scene came way too soon.

Agreed I was expecting it at the end. I loved the Night's Watch riding out and the funeral pyre scene. The Dragons looked great too.

Pretty good finale overall. Better than last week, but not QUITE as good as episode 8, which is now my favorite of the season. As usual, random thoughts:

-SHAGGYDOG! About freaking time!!!

-Yeah, King in the North did come rather soon, but I was fine with the scene otherwise. I'm guessing the woman we saw there was supposed to be Maege Mormont. Nice touch.

-So without any fanfare, the Hound is now a member of the Kingsguard. You think they would've slipped in a mention of it two episodes ago while Joffrey was giving Janos Slynt a lordship, etc.

-Yeah Sansa, we ALL wanted to do what you were thinking.

-Tyrion the Hand = Fun times ahead!

-Wow, amazed they showed Cersei and Lancel shacking up already!

-And tonight's pointless sexposition scene goes to.... PYCELLE?! I couldn't even begin to understand what purpose that served. And the following Littlefinger/Varys scene was redundant given episode 5.

-Liked that we got kind of a sneak preview of "Arry's" book 2 escapades. In the book the last we see of her is Yoren hacking off her hair. So I guess the fat kid was supposed to be Hot Pie and the other kid... Lommy Greenhands? Nice to see Gendry again.

-Wow, the Night's Watch is heading out already? That was fast.

-Poor Dany. She definitely has the biggest character arc of the first book. But... the baby dragons were so CUUUUTE! Two complaints though, her hair didn't get burned off, and no comet??? Boo on that!

Don't know how it is in the book, since I haven't read it, but her hair is a part of her, and she can't be hurt by fire, as already established in the series.

"When the fire died at last and the ground became cool enough to walk upon, Ser Jorah Mormont found her amidst the ashes, surrounded by blackened logs and bits of glowing ember and the burnt bones of man and woman and stallion. She was naked, covered with soot, her clothes turned to ash, her beautiful hair all crisped away... yet she was unhurt."

But yeah, I guess it makes more sense that if the rest of her is immune to fire, why not her hair?

Plus, if the hair from her head is burnt off, that would mean the hair from her arms, legs & everywhere else would be singed off, too...but, what the hell, its not tv, its HBO; they can show that sort of thing!

I hate to be a prick about this, but surely talking about which sets will be used next season (among other things) should be considered a spoiler. No?

Probably to show that his 'harmless old man' routine is a bit of an act, and he's actually got more going on than we'd suspect at first glance.

How so? Mormont's speech about a massive expedition beyond the Wall kind of makes it obvious.

Makes it obvious that nothing is going to happen at Castle Black for the entire season?

Really?

Because I didn't see anything there that made me assume the expedition would take the full season without returning, or that there wouldn't be characters that we've met at the Wall that are staying behind, or that new characters (like Arya's group) won't make their way there independent of Mormont's expedition.
