I'm gonna take a wild guess on this, but I think Hodor is the one that killed Joffrey. It's a hunch, but I think I may be right.

Kid is a great actor, he is actually retiring from acting so he can get his college degree.

But I agree with this, we all loved to hate him, and as vindicating as it was to watch him die in one of the most painful ways possible, he's going to be missed.

But now we get to see the tornado of disaster that his death brings.

The best line of this entire season was Loras and Jamie talking.

"You'll never marry Cersei"

"Neither will you."

Then he bumps Jamie's armor



Oberyn's threat to Cersei was also B.A.M.F.

Yeah but that is because he is played by a different actor. Bran on the otherhand looks like he will be 40 by the time the series has ended. Dude looks 20 already.

The actor now playing Tommen was the kid playing one of the two Lannister squires last season. The one the Karstarks killed in revenge for Jaime killing one of theirs. And that actor was playing a 15 year old. So yea Tommen is damn near grown. I think hes like...9...in the last book.

Also....

Notice the dragon shadow Bran saw when he touched the tree? Im not sure that isn't Balerion the Black Dread...the giant dragon that Aegon the Conqueror rode when he took Westeros.

I thought it was a bigger than in the books Drogon flying over Mereen in the previews but it cut quickly back to Kings landing and it was the same city from Brans dream.

And it should be obvious even to non book readers that Bran can see the past when he touches the trees. There were several visions of the past just tonight.....

Him seeing Balerion wasn't in the books but in one chapter about the same situation in the books(He was woken by Hodor having been asleep/warging for a long time) he did see dragon over Winterfell...through the eyes of his wolf.

Which is not a spoiler since that scene already passed in the show and if the books go back to it they have not yet. Just a lot of speculation.

Oh and if show watchers don't remember Balerion well...

Its the dragon that melted Harrenhall and the swords that form the Iron Throne. Tywin and Arya discussed that in season 2. Hes supposed to be the biggest dragon ever. The reason nobody could stand against the Targaryens. They didn't arrive with any soldiers. Just Balerion and two smaller dragons.Balerion was supposed to be big enough to eat a mammoth whole. Blocked out the sun when he flew.

I believe they explained that just seeing him at the head of Aegons host is the reason the kings of the north and west(An old Stark and Lannister) gave up rather than fight the way the kings of the east and south did. Kinda the south....the area the Tyrells have now. They were not kings at the time but like...left in charge while the king was away being killed by the dragons. Which is why Cersei mentioned in one of the other season that they were just upjumped and not really nobles.

Anyway...speculation is that Danys black dragon Drogon is supposed to be Balerion reborn. Something you could rule the world with.

Kblaze with a solid analysis on and off the court.
As for the psychopath question above, it's Ramsey and it ain't even close.

Biggest asshole in the history of television went down today.

What a great actor this Jack Gleesen was, he was 100% suited to portray Joffrey and he delivered big time. Respect!

We're in the middle of a great sequence.

I was definably not happy with the "Purple Wedding" as it's called, when I was reading. It felt as if Martin stole the revenge from us. And I always felt that was his intention. Joffrey wasn't killed by Arya, Bran, or John Snow, or someone avenging his tyranny. He wasn't made to plead for his life, or wine and bitch even the way he did when Arya whopped him with her stick when he was acting like a dick to the butcher's boy. I felt like I didn't get the vindication I wanted as a reader. But it's also just about halfway through the story as a whole, maybe less. So it really serves as more set up.



I liked the bafoonery of the Lanisters. It was played bigger than it is in text, but it worked.

I didn't think they quite pulled off the opulence of royal wedding quite as I recall it in the book. It didn't feel quite as grand as say Joffrey's name day celebration felt in that first season. I was honestly a little surprised it was even the wedding when it was happening, I thought it was going to be some preparation lunch or something.

No doubt the show is going to catch up with the books eventually.

So what should HBO do to keep us interested?

2015 - Season 5: They will finish eventually the book Dance with Dragons and feast for crows

2016-2017- season 6 and 7: Winds of Winter will be released by then . It is apparently a very detailed book with a lot of crucial events, therefore I am guessing HBO could squeeze in 2 seasons of storyline.

But what does HBO do now? A hope for Spring might come 2- 3-4 years after Winds of Winter

2018- Season 8- Aegon The Conqueror's quest and wars to claim the 7 KIngdoms

2019- Season 9- Robert Baratheon's rebellion ( this is the most interesting story in the books for me)

2020- Season 10- A Hope for Spring book


HBO is apparently making an insane amount of money with Game of Thrones. No reason not to keep it going until the 10th season if they make so much. Or, would they really take a 2-3-4 years hiatus until a Hope for Spint is delivered?
