    I think to do a cover-up like that you'd risk exposing the Iranian security chief's double-agent status.

    That would suck being a commercial crane operator in Iran. You get to hoist some steel beams to a new building, or a new AC unit to a roof, then you get a job at 4am where you have to hoist a guy up in a noose.

    Especially since the Crane Operators Union probably mandates time-and-a-half for overnight work like that. :D

    Anyone who hasn't seen Game of Thrones yet needs to run out and get it, do not pass go, and waste no more time watching any other shows until you do. ;)

    It's on my list. I just have to get through some other stuff first. I'm about halfway through The Shield, and then I plan on watching The Wire. :)

    Not to mention that I don't think there was anything that worth a spoiler tag in this thread. What did we disclose:
    1. Many characters have been killed
    2. Not so many that the series could be considered as having a "clean slate"

    Anyone with an interest in watching GoT probably could figure out that this would probably happen. Have you heard this joke "Why does George RR Martin not use Twitter? -- He's already killed 140 characters"?

    Now if I listed those who got killed towards the end of series 3 (I won't) or in the last half of series 1 (which really shocked me, because I was unfamiliar with the stories, after that the end of Series 3 was still stunning, but less of a shock).

    I am sure getting the Emmy helped a bit.

    This would be a perfect time to end this show before it goes completely "24" on us.

    Claire Danes is one one of my favorite actors but her character will continue to wear on people's nerves more and more. She should pull a Mandy Patinkin (without singing soprano) and move on to other challenging roles.

    Disagree. I am looking forward to the Homeland reboot. Great writers, great actors, and a setting (CIA/spy stuff) that allows for all kinds of stories.

    I agree, I just hope they don't go all formulaic/Dexter on us. Or as some said "24" (which I've never watched).

    I had avoided watching the season after hearing so many negative comments but I just binged it over the last week and I really enjoyed it (binge watching maybe helps). I knew that someone major died in the last ep and it wasn't hard to guess who so that was not big shock (was it a shock to others ?). But I thought the season was pretty good.

    It got off to a slow start, but I thought this season was great. Certainly better than season 2.
