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.
Title odds are 200:1. So you're saying there's a chance!

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.
