    Damned Memorial Day...actually I love having a day off but don't need the wait.

    Crazy Littlefinger, wasn't expecting that.

    I think I agree with The Hound, just sew me up and keep the fire to yourself.

    Ser Jorah, forever friendzoned.

    Some nice nods and little moments in this one. But they made one notable change this week with the circumstances of Lysa's death that makes me seriously question their judgment once again. Littlefinger was missing one key piece in his play that he is never foolish enough to do without: someone else to pin it on.

    Tonight I am supposed to be going to a MEETING (it is in caps because that is so wtf for me) but it is now raining out and I'm thinking RAIN RAIN hurry up and POUR because then I will have a reason, albeit a peculiar but earth saving one, not to go but to stay home and watch this ep of Game of Thrones instead.

    EDIT: Okay YES it is raining and I have manchego and some crackers which look like you would take them on a long journey and some slightly sour red wine so perfect. PERFECT.

    I am very easily made happy.

    EDIT: Melisandre has very strange nipples.

    Due to the way things played out in show v book I wonder who Littlefinger is going to blame

    Tyrion mentioning how Jamie can get away with fucking his sister because he's the favorite son. Awesome.

    Great episode.

    The Hound has his honorable days and I gave him a nod for putting that man down. I didn't think Rorge deserved to die though. I guess we could assume him and his partner burned down the hut (then stayed behind for some reason) but if Arya killed him for saying bad words to her, that's messed up.

    Though I didn't read the book, I picked up on Oberyn fighting for Tyrion beforehand (even more after the two obvious choices turned him down). Oberyn knows Tyrion is innocent and I assumed Cersei would pick the Mountain. I also saw Littlefinger's actions slightly beforehand too, the second he walked toward Lysa thinking to myself, you don't want to stand next to him and that moon-door (and in Lysa's defense, 5% of that kiss was Sansa. She moved forward).

    And was that another Gregor? Is that the third actor to play him?

    Yes, the first one went to play the albino Orc in the first Hobbit and the last one was too skinny lol. This one looks the part, that's for sure. :eek:

    Eh, I got a 'villain from Kevin Sorbo's Hercules' vibe.


    Edit: Also, I hope that was just a little snow, and that it doesn't not end.

    I imagine at this point in the series we all were waiting for that to happen. I wouldn't have been startled if he didn't but certainly not surprised when he did. So did that little brat (Robin is it?) have a bad day or what?

    Dropping a few pictures:

    Does Arya still plan on killing the Hound?

    It's nice seeing a few familiar faces not from the start who aren't dead.

    A great episode all in. Too many moments to name them all but most of you have already covered them anyway.

    I've often been critical of Aiden Gillen's performance in GOT but he totally played a blinder tonight. Nailed it big time. But how is he going to explain it to the lords of the Vale?

    Pedro Pascal is almost as compulsive as Peter Dinklage and it was great to see a reminder of why the Mountain is so feared. This new guy even makes the original actor look teeny. This will be some showdown.
