    Then how do you know the mountain is dying slowly and didn't just expire after the skull crushing. He did have a spear in his gut afterall.

    Deduction my dear Watson. I figure the spear head was poisoned and that it will take a while for him to croak. Besides, the fact that he had enough strength to crush a man's skull after being gutted by a spear indicates that he had some significant life left in him. It is a fantasy you know. Maybe he passed on right after the end of the episode. Who knows?

    They ended it quite abruptly. My guess is that when we pick back up on it, the mountain dies before Tywin can finish proclaming Tirion's guilt. Btw, I think this will be the last straw for Tirion towards his father, and we might see him go on a rampage on his whole family save Jamie.

    I agree. They set it up for another twist. If Tyrion is found innocent then I cannot see him sticking around the city. Maybe he goes and finds Dani?! He is small enough to ride one of those Dragons. It would be cool to watch him burn his father while attacking the city.

    He's been sentenced already, so my guess is he's either killed (who the hell knows with this author), or he escapes with the help of Jamie, who's by now way too invested in his brother's welfare to let anything happen to him. Particularly after that story about Orson and the beetles. That story seemed to really resonate with Jamie. Like he sees his brother as a feeling, caring, compassionate human being - and not so much just the object of his father's contempt and ridicule. He sees who the more valuable human being is in this feud now.

    Well that was interesting. I guess they had to address many of the issues all in one show to set things up for next season. I was not particularly wowed by that episode. Things were a bit odd. Without giving it away....did I miss that the person(s) going to the wall was going that way? It seemed like they sprung it on us. It was a peculiar way to do things. I dont see how the numbers match up. The timing was a bit odd as well. It seemed that they short changed Jon.

    Also I thought the scenes with Tyrion would be more powerful. So much of it all was a bit anti climactic. I thought the last two episodes were much more awesome in the way they ended. I was expecting more.

    Well I guess I am now moving onto Falling Skies. It doesn't rate up there with TWD or Vikings or GoT but it is a decent show and I have been following it since the beginning. The acting could be better but I like the storyline. I need to catch up on Fargo too.

    Haven't watched the episode yet but I believe I know what you are referring to. If I remember correctly from the book(which I might not exactly), they are not mentioned traveling there and they just show up out of the blue. From your description it sounds like they took it straight from the book without changing anything.

    what a great season..seasons 2 and 3 were both subpar IMO..but damn season 4 was pretty good. Im a Tyrian and Ara fan, excuse the spelling..It took 4 years to learn their names..it will take another 4 to embrace the spelling.

    Yeah now that you reminded us I do recall. I thought they were aiming lower, like Roos Bolton. I don't see how it helps them. It must have something to do with Jon Snow.
