Arya w/ her first kill. Matter of time before she becomes a certified badass, reuniting w/ Jaquen H'ghar will be helpful I'm sure...

Dany becoming a true force out in Essos...

Ramsay Bolton showing just how psychotic he is, he makes Joffrey look nice and well-adjusted. You throw in his father Roose, who seems to be one deadly man, and you've got yourself one hell of a father/son combo...

Episode wasn't as captivating as the RW obviously but it did a good job of giving a sort of rundown on where everyone was at in their individual plotlines and setting the stage for next season...

Sucks that its over for now though...next year? Shiiit...

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.
I pretty much concur. If you have a crazy event every episode that just blows people's minds, eventually they will become expected and old hat. The whole reason the Red Wedding was such a ridiculously emotional payoff was because it took years to build-up to. You don't get that kind of emotional investment in a single scene by killing people off and having crazy wars every week.

I watched the episode for a second time and thought there was a lot of interesting stuff ready to be explored in Season 4. I'm just p!ssed it's over, basically.

The show costs a ton of money to produce relative to other highly acclaimed television series like The Wire, Mad Men, Sopranos, etc. Still, I want more... There is so much story to tell, it could literally be all-year round... At least 13-15 episodes.

F#ck.

Are you guys serious? I was fine with the last episode, sure it didn't have as much action as the red wedding but really how can you expect them to top that??

I think there is a catch to his power... I don't think it will be that easy for him. There has to be some form of repercussion or consequences to being able to wield such magic. I haven't read the books but just a hunch.

What is the point of the kid who can't walk? Why does he want to find that raven? Dont get his storyline at all, wish his group would just get killed off.

(In Tyrion's voice) He's a young boy. Hormones would dictate that he would have Danaerys twerk in a public bath.

I am going to assume the limit of his power is that the more intelligent a life form is the harder it is to control them. Animals are easy, anyone with the power can do it. Hodor is too smart to control for people with average warg power, but someone as talented as bran can do it.

Edit: was I the only one that got the impression that Tywin was trying to guilt Tyrion into impregnating Sansa by any means necessary? The who part of talking about how his great sacrifice was not killing his deformed son whose birth had resulted in the death of his beloved wife. I even think it worked and that Tyrion was going to try to bed sansa until he saw her crying.

Also whats up with Yara only taking 50 dudes to rescue Theon? Are they the Ironborn version of seal team six?

Lots of nudity and violence in this show. Emilia Clarke has a nice body.

They say one iron born is worth 20 westeros men but they seem like a faction that talks a lot of shit and can't back it up.

All the same she took the fastest ship and only 50 men so she's hopefully planning somekind of special ops mission and not a siege of the warden of the north's home base with only 50 men.

One ironborn is worth a dozen men... dozen = 12.
