Game of Thrones - "Blackwater" - S02E09 5/27/12

OH HELL NO.
Someone better tell me right now that Tyrion isn't dead or I'm going to lose my mind.
Of course he's not dead. They wouldn't do that. Would they? Would they? I'm freaking out right now!!!

Okay more rational thoughts now that the shock has wore off. I don't think that was a fatal slash. I rewound it a few times. It's nasty but I don't think it was deep enough to kill him. (fingers crossed) So to distract myself from searching online for the answer and finding out other stuff I don't want to know, my other thoughts on the tonight.

So we see Davos and his son go boom. I hope that doesn't mean Davos is dead, as I think he was just blown from the boat. His son though, I fear is a goner.

So I'm wondering how Tywin ends up saving the day with the troops from Renly's army no less. That was Loras Tyrell that took his helmet off before Tywin walked in to Cercei, right?

I was really scared for Shae there for a second. I thought for sure Cercei was going to figure it out and gut her right there. She's just that evil.

So now that the Lannister's hold the crown, what's that say for the Hound? Is he really going to get Sansa out of town and back to Winterfell? Will they capture him and call him a traitor to the crown now? I did love that Bronn saved his ass though. Very nice. I actually kind of saw that coming when they were at their stand off before it all started. I said "watch Bronn have to save him during battle" and sure enough.

Tyrion's rallying of the troops was pretty effing awesome. I loved that he used the tunnels for battle and not escaping. How does everyone else not realize he's the only one in that family worth a crap??

He's not dead, just napping

So if Sansa got out with the Hound then that means that Mommy Stark has no traded their best bargaining chip for nothing at all

I enjoyed the episode, but can't imagine how we get any sort of "lull" in the storylines to wrap up for a season break.

Tyrion chopping off that guys leg was great.

The scene in the throne room was chilling. I wish GRRM could write all the episodes. Of course then it would be decades before he finishes the story.

Even knowing what was coming, I was on the edge of my seat throughout. It was every bit as great an episode as I hoped. I don't want the season to end now. At least next week is listed as 70 minutes.

He better be careful because if the general population starts favoring him he might get killed "just in case"

Same here!

The Hound being afraid of fire was really great. And the look on Sansa's face as she realized how he feels about her was nicely done.

That was the youngest, Tommen. Myrcella is the daughter that was sent off to Dorne. Tyrion told Cersei last week that she had produced two good children and only one monster.

Now we will have to see Joffrey up there next week acting I like a tough guy when he really ran like wuss. I hope he gets slapped again for it.

We will get a Stannis beheading? Or did he get out of the city?

People keep saying that Sansa left with the Hound, but that is far from clear to me from what I saw. Did I miss a scene?

In her room, Sansa initially said she was staying. After listening to him for a minute, it seemed that maybe she considered going with the Hound after she decided he would not hurt her, but it was not at all clear to me that she changed her mind about staying. And the scene in her room did not show her following him out the door.

watching it right now, it looks like his men dragging him away. He wasn't trying to kill them or fight them.

One continuity problem was the cousin getting shot in the right chest with an arrow but then the queen hit him on his left to cause him great pain and to fall down.

I don't get why the King's guard guy tried to kill Tyrion...

She's been trying to escape for months. She might be killed if she stays. This is her chance and she now has the Hound protecting her. She realizes everything and he opens the door and start out. I would be shocked if she had not gone with him.

100% it's Stannis' men dragging him away. They were fighting with him and killing the guards wearing red uniforms.

I had to laugh at the look on Tyrion's face when the men were cheering him after his (initial) victory. "Half-man! Half-man!" Like he couldn't decide whether he was flattered or insulted. "Well, at least they're cheering!"

Wow, this was just incredible. I think this was by far the best episode of the series yet. After all we've seen so far and all I've read about GRRM's writing style, I was convinced we'd never see a battle directly. So glad I was wrong, and it was done spectacularly.

Bet Stannis wishes he hadn't left Mellisandre behind now. He could have used some magic. I'm fairly certain Stannis escapes, but wonder what he's going to do now that his army has been decimated. I don't see him sailing off and hiding in a cave, but he's tried the traditional attack and lost. I bet we see him desperate and turning to something dark next time.

Did we have any clue that Loras had teamed up with Tywin? Did we see any of his men consulting with Tywin before and I was just asleep?

So when someone first turned me onto this series, they said it was sort of Lord of the Rings like. In a very vague way it is, but I don't really see it for the most part. However (LotR spoilers below for anyone who's lived in a cave but still might want to see/read it):
Spoiler:
First, Sean bean dies at the end (more or less) of season/part 1. Then season/part 2 ends with a huge battle for a fortress, where a magic explosive plays a huge role (though wielded by the opposite side here), and then the battle is saved by an unexpectedly arriving calvalry. :-)

No, but we saw Littlefinger consulting with Margaery Tyrell.

No you didn't. I didn't see her actually leave either, which is why I was speculating on if they'd make it or he'd be called a traitor.

Ah yes! Of course. She wants to be queen and Loras wants to get Stannis. That would make perfect sense for them to team up.

Yeah, I was just remembering that this morning. And I bet she gets it (her family having just saved the day), no matter whether Sansa runs away or not. Sansa offers nothing to Joffrey, and he seems to despise her.


Speeking of Loras, I think I got a few characters mixed up. Who was it that took the arrow to the chest, and then was trying to convince Cersie to send Joffrey back to the battle? I was thinking it was Loras at the time, but that obviously doesn't make sense. Was it the relative she started sleeping with after Jamie was captured? But this guy seemed to have a bit more spine than that guy.

Tywin is not going to be a happy man once he learns all that went on...Cersie pulling Joffrey from battle, Joffrey being a coward, Sansa presumable getting away (though I agree it's not clear that she actually left). The only thing he IS going to be happy about it Tyrion's performance. My guess is he now brings Tyrion in on the war vs Robb. Cersie deserves at least a little credit, for having been responsible for the manufacture of the "pig ****" (even if it's Tyrion that gets credit for that fantastic explosion), but I doubt she'll get it.

Yeah, I'm going to have to watch it again to see. If it was, the only thing that comes to mind was something Cersie said about not being able to trust the Kings Guard to remain loyal once Stannis breaches the wall. Maybe he thought Stannis' win was inevitable at that point and decided to back the winning team.
