Advertisements Great episode, best of the series so far! I gotta start out with a quote from the book. It's nothing you'll be sorry you read, I think. Regarding Arya when she stuck the stable boy with the pointy end. Spoiler In the book the stable boy says "oh gods, take it out". Now I didn't go back and look that up, but I'm pretty sure it's an exact quote. May not seem like so much in this post, but in context I thought it was very powerful when I read it. Shame it couldn't stay. Again, great great episode. Sad there's only 2 left. Sadder still that we'll have to wait a year for the next season. Who is the guy with the gray beard that wanted to take the van when Robb called the banners?
