If that's really them, holy fucking shit.

Once again, fantastic scene with Tywin and Arya. Good to have the Jaime back too.

You know nothing, Jon Snow... Been waiting for that line all season

Lots of great scenes in this episode - the Tywin and Arya scenes are particular are really excellent.

I haven't read that books, so I'm interested to see what goes on with Jon Snow now...

Another great episode. Jaime delivered in all his scenes. Even Cersei was far less of a monster, especially trying to talk reason into a very frightened Sansa.

Sigh... 6 days, 22 hours to go until my next fix.

Another meh episode, at least by this show's standards. Great scenes by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and the always perfectly brilliant young Ms. Williams, but let down scenes by the overly petulant duo of Clarke and Harington. And I really liked the Dany character before the last two eps.

I have yet to see a meh episode. Each episode this season better than the last, cept this one maybe. Although the last quarter was as good as it gets, and powerful ending.

Comparatively, this one was hurt (in my opinion) by shorter scenes. It seemed to jump a bit more frequently than other episodes. For instance, going back to Jon and Ygritte three or four times seemed unnecessary when it could have all been handled at once.

Still, if that's all I have to complain about, I'll gladly take it.

The King's Landing scenes are generally my favourite, mostly because Peter Dinklage has great chemistry with everyone there, especially Lena Headey. Their scene together was awesome. He was going to hug her when they both realized how awkward things were getting, which I found kinda funny. You know that Cersei is losing her shit when she is confiding in Tyrion of all people.

Nice talk from Cersei, coincidentally on Mother's Day.

Awesome ending to the episode. Loved the reaction of Theon, I love how he's forcing himself with all this stuff while being visibly disturbed by it. I'm glad Sansa and Jaime finally had something interesting to do and say, and both were fantastic.

I could do without the stuff with Snow and the ginger girl. That hasn't been particularly interesting at all to me.

Not sure why that needed spoiler tags but that was my guess.

Didn't see that bit with Xaro coming. Why did the Thirteen snicker at the mention of the "King of Qarth"?

Because there was no king. They were the rulers as a group. Not anymore though......

That is exactly how I feel as soon as every episode has ended this year.

Did the previews for next week episode say 'only 2 episodes left' or did I read that wrong? I thought there were 3 episodes left in the season? Hopefully I read it wrong!

That's what I saw too. Maybe we both saw it wrong and they meant 2 episodes before the season finale? Or maybe they're doing a 2 hour finale (does HBO ever do that?).

I thought Jon Snow was going to pull an Anthony Michael Hall ala 'The Breakfast Club' to the girl who was questioning his virginity: "I've layed before, you wouldn't know her, she lives in Niagra Falls."

Everything else says three episodes. Plus we know they made 10 and this was just number seven. I doubt they redid the schedule for a two-hour finale on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend.

Someone just goofed.
