The last thread more than doubled the season average post count and only 7.34% of it related to the episode at hand. We can beat that easily.

I was thinking while going to bed last night that a globe of the GoT world would be fucking awesome and I'd buy one in a heartbeat if it existed.

Also, can't wait for tonight.

Yeah, someone put together a speculative map of the known world and GRRM said it's great for what it is but it's not accurate -- nor could it be accurate because there are things we don't know yet (because he hasn't written it yet). Maybe one day.

Maybe we will actually have a spoiler so we can justify 15 pages

That one girl with Theon looked surprisingly good.

Haven't been a big fan of the last two episodes overall, including tonight's.

Sure there were some very good scenes, (Tyrion and Arya), but something isn't clicking with me recently. Perhaps it is just me.

Every single episode is better than the last. HOW CAN SCIENCE ALLOW THIS?

Even knowing what the overall arcs are, I'm still nervous as these scenes unfold!

There was a lot of in this too. Especially Ygrette

What did the note say that Arya stole? I paused it and still couldn't make it out other than a few words.

Interesting ending... Bran (via Hodor) and Rickon just walking out of Winterfell because Tonks has sex with Theon? How does that even make sense?

It was basically saying where Robb was (turn east at Silverhill) for, I assume, a Lannister counter-attack.

Last episode didn't click for me either but this week's was pure gold. The hound's badassery, Joffrey getting hit with manure, Arya and Tywin. Even Dany's storyline was interesting (at the end).

Theon is right up there with Joffrey for me on the Hate-o-Meter. I've hated him since the pilot. RIP Ser Rodrik. The cruel irony of his death at the hands of the boy he taught to fight...

And oh yeah, Jon must be loving how his faithful direwolf Snow just up and abandoned him in his time of need! At least Summer and Shaggydog escaped with their masters.

What a terrible beheading. Theon's got no follow-through at all.

Jon's direwolf is aptly named Ghost. Another great episode.

The real mystery of this show is how the hell does Littlefinger get to places so quickly? From King's Landing, to the Stormlands last week, to Harrenhal this week.

Loved the Hound saving Sansa.

It makes sense. Give it time.

Really loved this episode. So many story lines, so interesting. And easier to follow than previous weeks, at least for me. Way too much Yellow & Teal effect in the Quarth shots though -- looks like a Michael Bey film now, minus the explosions.

I swear, seeing Mad Men and Game of Thrones back to back, it might be the best two-hour block in the history of television. Two top quality shows that just keep delivering.
