    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 :D

    Looks like I got it wrong. Oberyn chooses Tyrion. :p

    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.

    EVERYTHING was so obvious...

    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!

    Am I crazy or did they change actors on us for The Mountain?

    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.

    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.
