I don't know. It seems too obvious to me.

Just finished the Season finale. Man, I love Yara/Asha.

Although I have to say, I feel like almost every scene in the episode was better than the ending scene. Not crazy about the writers feeling obligated to end with a Dany + the dragons scene for every season finale.

Finale spoilers below, I'm not whiting them out and if you're not up to date you should leave and come back when you've seen the finale!!

Me too! She's good in the books and she's good in the show. I like the way she looks in the show as well! Lots of people were pissed that's she wasn't beautiful and chic. Blah! Being a knock out is rare. Not every woman of interest is a knock out. Get over it.

(the only thing I didn't like is her as a blond. She looks ace in the dark hair imo)


Yeah. So, Arya and Sandor, strange scene, he walks right past the Freys like there's no threat? And the Freys don't stop a man in full armor? And Arya hops off the horse and runs up to them and he just lets her? Not keeping the post-RW tone in the novel but that may come. Nice to see a bit of action there, especially on Arya's part.

Speaking of the horse, that poor animal's neck is going to be destroyed by the time they (small book event) find the sorrel mare Craven. I guess it's easier for the actors to interact this way, plus I suppose it might be a bit sexually tense if Arya was squashed between Sandor's pelvis and the pommel. But it looks bizarre.

Uhm, Jon getting shot like 3 times in the leg and back and ?? Is this still supposed to be analogous to what happens in the book? That seems like an awful lot of wounds.

I feel there was some Stannis character assassination going on there.

Joffrey v Tywin, good stuff. Show Joffrey and show Tywin are sooo much better than their book counterparts. Gleeson is a great actor.

Tyrion and Sansa are sort of hitting it off (or they were before the news). I hope we get the pease scene.

Yeah... I feel that could've been better. I get why it was the final scene... Dany is obviously a huge player and this is a very significant part of her development, but it was a bit cliche or something. Eh.

ALSO POSTING SEASON FINALE SPOILERS. JUST WATCH IT GUYS. LIKE RIGHT NOW. It was a great episode!

Is Yara/Asha supposed to be clasically gorgeous in the books? As a non book reader I think she's perfect for the role. A strong, completely badass woman who has earned the respect and loyalty of her men. She looks like an Ironborn!!

I really liked seeing Arya cut into the Frey guy. I think the writers had to give the viewers that bit of satisfaction after witnessing what Arya had to see in the opening scene. I agree that it makes no sense once you think about it, but the moment they showed the Freys I was cheering for the Hound and Arya to kill them. Oh, and I did remember someone else bringing up the Arya riding side-saddle thing, and I do think it's just the general awkwardness of a teenage girl riding in front of a guy who's sitting on 80% of the horse already LOL But yeah, a little weird.

Poor Jon. But holy crap, yay for reuniting with Pip and Sam!

And I adore Shireen, and the Onion Knight. Ser Davos is such a good guy, he better make it through this series. PLEASE. I'm really glad he helped Gendry escape.

Hahahaha, oh my goodness, that LOOK on Joffrey's face in his scene. So gleeful and pleased with himself and oh so punchable. He really is an amazing actor, he's great with both the overt and subtle changes in facial expression and delivery. It was also hilarious to see him while rewatching Batman:



Tywin is fantastic as well. Easily one of my favorites, as a character in the show and in terms of casting (Charles Dance is so perfect).

And oh yeah, I do love Dany and I always like seeing the dragons, but it was a great episode (not to mention, the episode following the Red Wedding and the last scene of the season finale...), so I wish they ended with something that would leave more of an impact. A heartwarming scene, but I wanted mooooreeeee.

I just finished the last episode. I guess I had myself all worked up this this great finale and I was kind of disappointed. Oh well... Still good though.

I cringe every times a Theon scene comes on. That guy torturing him is just wicked. lol

I think I really like the Tyrion/Sansa interactions. Tyrion is so sweet.

Two people I cannot stand! Stannis and Joffrey. Not really sure why I don't like Stannis but he's just not appealing to me as a character and I feel his scenes are a bit boring.

Me too. I admit I started out kind of automatically disliking her because she's a Greyjoy (I know, I know) but she's turned into a pretty admirable character.

And uh. You guys are probably going to think I'm some kind of psychopath for saying this, but I like Ramsay way more than I should. I know the Ramsay/Theon scenes are probably supposed to be shocking and hard to watch, but I find them kind of funny. That's probably just because I have close to zero respect for Theon, though.

Overall I thought it was a good finale. Really liking the Tyrion/Sana friendship, and Tywin sending Joffrey to his room was a nice touch. I have to say the last scene didn't really do it for me either - as much as I love Dani, I couldn't really take the whole crowdsurfing thing seriously, haha.

Gendry, don't fall out of your boat.

Oh, and "You know nothing, Jon Snow." Gah.

And if you guys haven't seen this, watch George R.R. Martin talk about some serious Season 4 spoilers (trust me, just watch it):

I think I liked her because the other Greyjoys were so awful! After a couple scenes I was just thinking "what a bro!". Just seemed like an all around awesome person to have on your side.

No, no I love Ramsay LOL The actor is fantastic, I actually went to watch all the seasons of Misfits just for that actor. He has the psychotic personality (and those CRAZY EYES) down pat.

Probably even more evil than Joffrey, but if I'm not cringing during his scenes with Theon, I'm laughing. And I won't lie, I like see Joffrey getting screen time, too. Hate the character, love the acting and something interesting always happens during his scenes.

Definitely not a fan of Theon, but my heart did break a little (a lot) with his "my real father died in King's Landing" line

LOL yeah, the crowd surfing was a bit too much. Dany's my favorite contender for the throne (and she was even before Robb kicked it) but, ehhhhhhh. It was nice, but completely anticlimatic.
