Because I don't trust GRRM, I was picturing Lysa pushing Sansa then in a rage Little Finger pushes Lysa.

Loved the bit of directing with Tyrion sitting in the dark and then his face bathed in light as the door opened (to let his salvation, Oberyn, in).

As soon as I saw the light (ha ha), I knew it would be Oberyn coming though that door.

Man, I can't wait for the scene when Oberyn announces he will be Tyrion's champion

Spoiler:
Episode 8 is titled "The Mountain and the Viper". Something tells me Tyrion chooses Oberyn and not Jaimie.
Looks like I got it wrong. Oberyn chooses Tyrion.

I hope it plays out that Oberyn wins. But you never know.

Yeah. We need to stop talking about it here.

The surprises didn't surprise me. We guessed who was going to fight The Mountain.

I think that was kill #3 for Arya and Needle, right?

Littlefinger needs to have the Moon Door filled with concrete. That thing is dangerous.

Isn't repeatedly saying "Let her go" about the worst possible choice of words in that situation? LOL

The call goes out: The Mountain needs more sparring partners! Hey! Where are you going?

I loved how smug Brienne was toward Pod after it turned out that her announcing they were looking for the Stark girls actually yielded some valuable info.

And I wish I hadn't clicked on gossamer's spoiler in the last thread. That scene with Oberyn and Tyrion would have been so much more satisfying if I didn't know what was coming.

(And if I weren't looking up actor ages on IMDb. Pedro Pascal's age isn't listed, but he looks younger than Peter Dinklage. And Lena Heady is four years younger than Peter. So it's kind of odd that both Oberyn and Cersei are supposedly so much older than Tyrion that they have very vivid memories of when he was born.)

Boy, am I glad I never click on anything in spoiler tags. While I discussed the possibility in the last thread, I would have absolutely not enjoyed the reveal and outcome as much.

Out of curiosity: did he spell it out or hint at it?


Edit: nevermind. I had read his post before he put it in spoiler tags and promptly forgot all about it. Sometimes, a bad memory is all you need!

I think maybe so this Mountain made me think of Alex Karras as Mongo in Blazing Saddles for some reason. "Mongo Like candy"

I have a couple of thoughts:

1. Arya has progressed now to killing people who insulted her. She is quickly becoming as remorseless a killer as all the people she hates.

2. I thought the producers/editor/director/whatever really made a huge mistake by finishing up with the scene at the Eyrie instead of the scene in Tyrion's cell. Flip the order of those 2 scenes and finish with Tyrion and the whole episode would have been 10 times more powerful.

Well, they couldn't exactly let him go, could they?

Remind me not to tell Arya Stark my name.

At the beginning of the Sansa scenes, I thought to myself "Oh, no. Not another visit to Krazytown." At least it had a good ending. Robin needs to get his little ass flown next.

I thought somehow things would fall in a way that the Hound would end up fighting the Mountain.

I don't have a problem with it, she doesn't hate them because they are killers, she hates them because of the specific people they have killed, I don't think there is any hypocrisy there.

I don't mind as long as she only kills bad guys. I have no idea on how the guy who bit the Hound got the jump on him. It was out in the open. It's not like those guys were ninjas but suddenly the guy appeared right behind the Hound.

Normally, The Hound would have done the deed.

That guy had not killed anyone she knows (or anyone, for all she knows!). His sin was that he said if he ever got out of the prison-cart, he would rape her. I'm not saying she's a hypocrite, but she is now killing "any" bad guy or any guy who crosses her. She's getting used to killing and is now as remorseless as all the people she hates, just as Mellisandre said she would.

I think the next progression is for her to kill out of mercy (hmm...just as the Hound did!). All I'm saying is that this character is evolving into the killer she was predicted she would become.

or why, if he were the brave one of the two, he didn't do it with the one sword they had between them!

Bronn is one of my favorite characters. Loved his scene with Tyrion in the cell.

Remember Cersei is supposed to be the most beautiful woman in all of Westoros. So blame the young appearance on good genetics. As for Oberyn, he has been to Asshai, a land of dark magics. There is no telling what health and beauty products they use there.

The one who attacked the hound was Biter. His preferred attack method was to bite people. His associate, Rorge, was a horrible human being, murderer, and rapist. No doubt Yoren told Arya of the evils he had committed. She did Westoros a favor.

She is? They've miscast that role with Lena Headley.

We have a crossover! Shambling zombies from The Walking Dead somehow get the drop on people in the open.

I think it's more a case of she was (one of) the most beautiful. Now she's pushing 40 so it's fading beauty.

When your family has enough power, you can just be declared the most beautiful.

I am so tired of Sansa. Not once in the entire series has she done anything interesting.* It's one whiny woe-is-me I'm helpless and make every bad decision possible scene to the next. What I would absolutely love is for her to just say screw it and go full-bore bad guy with Littlefinger.

*I suspect what makes the worse for me is that I watched the entire series in about a week just recently. The last couple of episodes are the only ones I've watched week to week.
