    I am shocked a thread hasn't been started already!

    Now that wasn't a boring episode! Tyrion finally becomes that which he has been accused of several times now. A murderer. And not just a murderer, a double murderer. And not just a double murderer, he committed patracide. On Father's Day!

    I guess this is the annual end-of-the-season clear-the-payroll-for-next-year episode. :D

    RIP, Shae, Tywin, Hound, Jojen...

    At about 42-43 minutes I nervously thought "they're not spending enough time with Tyrion!", fearing that we'd see a quick blunt execution scene.. I'd been saying for weeks to Laurie "THIS SHOW IS ON THIN ICE....." with respect to Tyrion - kill him (especially like they were threatening to) and I might stop out of protest.. I was that angry about it..

    So glad that it was Tyrion that got the privilege of killing Tywin(sp).

    And did you see he used that fancy crossbow that Geoffrey used to threaten everyone with? That was Checkov's crossbow!! :)

    I liked how once the bells rang, baldy there realized he'd better go back to the boat and leave with Tyrion.

    Sad to see The Hound go.. what a battle though!

    Overall, pretty satisfying episode. Best since Joffrey died.

    There are WORDS to the theme? (And I don't mean wiener, wiener, wiener!)

    I'm glad the episode opened with a good shot of the gate. It's almost like they knew it was the focal point of last week's conversation.

    Davros's speech at the Iron Bank a few weeks ago was good foreshadowing. What will happen now that Tywin is no longer in control?

    All i can manage to say right now is Holy Smoke! Good episode. I can't believe we have to wait another year.

    Was this episode titled "The Children" because of the girl at the tree, who said her people are known as that to the First Men, or because it focused on the children in the series (Arya, Bram, John, Tyrion), or both?

    * yes, I know John and Tyrion aren't minors, but they are of the second generation.

    What was the significant of the iron coin and the code words that Arya said to the captain and can anyone translate the words. That part at the end lost me. :confused:

    Tywin's bathroom was poorly designed. Door shoulda been lockable, from the inside. ;)

    They showed it in the "Previously on Game of Thrones". Jaqar Ha'gen gave her the coin and told her to give it to any ship captain headed to Braavos.

    Valar Morghulis means "All Men Must Die".
    The response, Valar Dohaeris means "All Men Must Serve". It's the traditional response to someone saying "Valar Moghulis".

    He said to give it to any man of Bravos. I got he impression that whatever a shape shifter like Ha'dar is, he's like a priest or god to men of Bravos?

    Yes. Tyrion's left from King's Landing. Arya is near The Vale.

    How 'bout that Arya evidently never went past the bloody gate to see her sister?

    I like that Tywin found out that his legacy was tarnished (because of his incestuous kids) before we saw him die.
