I did like finding out that the Bastard of Bolton was the guy responsible for the torturing... And subsequent research has shown me he was a pretty important player in the books.

What did you guys expect from a season finale? The past 3 finales have all been the same-- setting up events for the next season.

This was a good episode.

Theon's sister going to the South, Gendry escaped, White Walkers are nearing, Jon is back in Castle Black, Arya finally killed someone, and Dany is building massively.

Also, I can't wait to see how everyone reacts to the return of Jamie and his missing hand.

and during small council meeting that was called upon to reveal Rob's death and the Red Wedding, Tyrion set up Joffrey with a jab and then Tywin swung with a haymaker for the KO by sending the King Joffrey to his quarters without supper.

Funny you mention it, I've always looked at the show as a western fantasy version of Romance of Three Kingdoms.

I can see a lot of people losing interest next season or the season after. The books start moving in a completely different direction.

I don't know why people are complaining? I thought this season (and the final episode) were great. Maybe not as good as 1 or 2, but definitely solid. I don't know exactly what people want out of it? The finale was exactly the right way to do it. As you said, season 4 is now set up to go.

This is sorta my feeling too. I actually think I liked this better than last years season finale. It crossed my mind that they could've actually squeezed another wedding in here, even though it would've required rushing some things, and even swapping around some sequences, but it was possible, and it woulda been nuts, but overall not rushing it was probably better.

I did think the Tywin/Tyrion stuff, with Joffrey was top shelf. Tyrion Cersei was good. Cersei seeing Jamie was good.

I thought the mutilated Robb stuff was handled quite well. Showing just enough for me to be mortified but not so much I didn't want to watch.

Roose/Walder was done well enough to set up direction.

And I liked the Arya getting her first kill sequence.

And I even think they kind of paid off the Theon stuff that I really didn't care for most of the year. I still feel like he could've been ommitted for the entire season, but at least it went somewhere. Revealing that the torturer was Roose's bastard just didn't work. I mean I've read the books, so it wasn't gonna be for me anyway, but I don't know anyone who didn't figure out who he was. I really feel like leaving him "dead" all season, only to reveal him in mutilated form later, would've been a better story telling mechanism.

Brienne fighting a bear.
Samwell killing a white walker.
People climbing the fucking 700 ft. wall.
Bran warging. (okay that's a little boring, but it leads to some pretty cool shit)
Danerys kicking ass, and showing her nice little body as well.
The Starks getting slaughtered.

And that's only half of the 3rd book. I kind of wish they'd have gotten to Joffrey's wedding, but I'm cool with waiting till next season. My hope is that they condense the 4th book and concentrate more on Tyrion, Littlefinger, Arya, Danerys and Uncat.

the books started off as a fantasy re-imagining of the war of the roses

starks vs lannisters = yorks vs lancasters

Lannister = Wei. A designated heel clan. Tywin is very much like Cao Cao.
Targaryen = Shu. A designated face clan.
Stark = Wu. An old clan where the head died early in the story. Eddard = Sun Ce.

Very good ending! Not the Red Wedding exciting but good none the less.

In white my small tangent....
So it looks like all these wars between the Starks First Men, Baratheon Andals plus (Melisandre of Asshai fire gods), Targaryens is going to pale in comparison to whats coming back from the North.

So now the Starks, Wildlings, Others joins forces to fight the Baratheon Andals (Melisandre of Asshai fire gods), Lannisters.

Then this all out magic war between the Targaryens with Dragons duke it out with the Starks, Wildlings and Others for one epic battle?

Seriously.

Every season finale so far has setup the next season's plot lines. There were a lot of huge events that happened last night:

Jon and Sam are back at Castle Black
Bran made it past the Wall and is headed north to find the Three-Eyed Crow
Arya shanked the fvck out of some dude
Jamie and Brienne made it back to King's Landing, he's finally back to his sister after months/years
Yara Greyjoy is going to attack the Dreadfort and save Theon from the Bolton Bastard after seeing a Dick in A Box
Tywin and Joffrey really went at it for the first time over who has more power
Gendry escaped (this never happens in the book so his story line should be interesting)
Dany is slowly conquering that entire continent and amassing a HUGE army

And the biggest of all: Stannis, his army, Davos, and Melisandre are going to march to the Wall and assist the Night's Watch


You can't expect an event like the Red Wedding to happen every episode. Some spoiled whiners in here.
