The scene with her and Frey was delightful.


The HBO show doesn't do much with warging so I don't know if they will have much with Nymeria, although there are only 2 direwolves left. So maybe. I also hope they re-unite - bring that story-line full circle. The 2 of them could go on a nice killing spree.

Maisie Williams, the actress playing Arya, has been nominated for an Emmy Award for outstanding supporting actress. So has Lena Headey (Cersei) and Emilia Clark (Daenerys). I feel Lena Headey should get it. Her "I chose violence" line was priceless. Game of Thrones received 23 Emmy nominations in total. Great show.

I loved Sansa's acting as well to be honest. Most of them are really good. Props to Littlefinger and Tyrion as well.

My favorite line from Cersei.

Tonight's the night for the Emmy awards. Rooting for Lena Headey for best supporting actress.

Euron doesn't seem as cool in the show as he does in the book lol

Yeah. Euron is too much of a smartass in the HBO show. In the books he was more of a badass, mystical, black magic using pirate.

The opening scene with Arya was priceless and beautifully done. It made the whole episode.

The Arya scenes are what's saving the show. The final battle in episode 2 looked great, but doesn't make sense from a plot standpoint. The good thing is that the Dorne part is dead. I feel like the ironborn and Dornish got the short end of the stick during the second half of the TV series.

Arya has a great sparring match with Brienne.

In episode 4, the battle scene was the best I have ever seen on TV, equal to a high budget movie. I won't give any spoilers - it is very much worth watching.

I think episode 5 is better than 4 and it had almost zero fighting. What's even better is that it set up episode 6 perfectly and episode 6 is another gem.

Epic season finale. The final episode was more like a movie and brought together a lot of old story lines to give them a satisfying reunion/conclusion. Arya - love her. What more to say than I wish we had more Knick players with her temperament. She sees the job; does the job; has a cold killer instinct. No one messes with Arya of House Stark (No one) without paying for it later!

A little disappointed about how the littlefinger situation ended. Felt rush and to easy considering the mastermind he's been in the books and series. His decision-making the last few years just seemed out of character. The golden company plot doesn't make any sense either, given their history. There's no way they'd side with Cersei. That said....ice dragon lol Effin awesome.

Aryas sex scene was weird for me. It's hard to see someone growing up over to noticing their asses during some porn parody of GOT. Nice to see everyone reunite in season 2. I've accepted the books and the show are two separate entities. I'm just enjoying it for the escapist fun that it is.

It was weird for me too but I thought they handled it well.

(Spoiler alert).....

The battle of Winterfell was very well done. Sure there was a few holes in it but the tension build up was great and it really was not a predictable sequence. I think we all guessed with 3 episodes left that this battle conclusion was not the ending and obviously things with the queen are not settled!

I loved the ending of the knight king and Araya's move. Her whole journey and "Destiny" just came together at that one moment.

Completely awesome moment; but kind of anti-climactic. Never felt like the Night King got a chance to show what he was capable of...aside from one moment raising his arms. Very quick end to it all...almost hope there's a bit more to it over the last 3 episodes and not all focused back on the throne.

I thought for sure the battle would be a two parter, like Lord of the Rings. It's not, so there's some time to play. I personally am hoping this means that everyone marches south to King's Landing, and the show gets its Clegane Bowl

Awesome episode. A lot of questionable military moves done by the living. Sending your cavalry blind was stupid but I kinda liked it for theatrical reasons. Seeing the whole line light up by the red woman was great then seeing it extinguished really drove the point that they are in trouble.

Arya taking out the night king was great for me. I was lulled by them showing john snow over and over. The move arya did she practiced before. She did that move against ser brienne

Definately alot of questionable military moves. Alot of darkness where my tv was black I can't see what the hell is happening.

In regards to Arya, I knew she was going to kill the Night King because you don't have memorable quotes like when she told Gendry "death has many faces....etc"

I increased brightness on my tv and it worked well

Riddle me this Batman...how does a white walker able to bust out of the crypts in Winterfell but can't break out of a crate that was shown to Cersei.
