A shame that the season ends tonight. This season was pretty good.

Can't wait. I assume HBO GO will be a disaster as usual.

Powerful episode. Nearly every scene and every shot had a huge amount of strength in it. The exception was an over use of close ups in the fight scene with the Hound. Other than that this was such a stellar episode with so much happening it shames other shows.

Awesome episode! Went exactly how imagined it would go, so much good stuff. The fight between between the Hound and Brienne was fantastic and she ripped his ear off. Best fight in the entire show.

Great job although some significant change from books. The conversation between tyrion and Jamie and later Tywin was quite different than book

Definitely. It was REALLY intense.



Bravo, HBO, Bravo!

Do not click below if you have not read the books. Seriously. I totally mean it.

There were some really huge surprises for me in this episode as someone who hasn't read the books:



Now that this season is ended I went ahead and read the synopses of the next two published books. They sound terribly boring. It sounds like absolutely nothing interesting happens aside from the few things they already showed this season. My interest in this series was steadily growing this season and I was really getting into the show... but I don't think I'm going to care for the next two seasons at all now...

So yeah, I was predicting this would easily be the show's best season finale, and sure 'nuff...

Really appreciated the extra running time, as it gave a lot of the scenes room to breathe, which unfortunately doesn't happen a lot of the time on this show. If only they could've fit Stannis's arrival at the end of last week. Would've VASTLY improved that episode.

The wights were pretty fucking awesome. Take that, Walking Dead!

Brienne and Pod encountering The Hound and Arya was a major deviation, but it still got the latter two where they needed to be story-wise, and hey, we got the ear-biting as well!

Yeah, I'm kind of a little sad now, as I have a feeling this episode will end up being the show's high water mark. A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons never really reach the crazy highs of A Storm of Swords, unfortunately. I'm just hoping the show can somehow manage to improve on them.

There were a few great scenes in here, but overall, it felt a little uneven to me. Some parts seemed to be in a complete rush to set the table for next season, while others were totally devoid of urgency.

That said, I am looking forward to next season. Most of season four was excellent.

Haven't seen sword fighting that sluggish since Akakin/Obi-wan II (Live from Caesar's Palace I think) amirite?
