    I forgot to mention my big complaint for the episode - the unbelievably clunky kennel fight. Ramsay goes at armored Viking soldiers without even a shirt on and doesn't get a scratch, then pulls a key out of his ass. The two sides fight, each lose half their men, then end up completely separated for another go round. In a very narrow area, Asha (aka Yara) is by Theon and her side manages to fight Ramsay's side such that they trade places. Ramsay pulls out his key and poses with it, but no one quickly goes at him or tosses one of those throwing axes from the earlier part on the ramparts. Ramsay releases his hounds about ten feet from Asha and company, but they teleport to their boats and put them in the water without the dogs catching them.

    Lazy, lazy, lazy. I guess the episode needed some violence, but that was embarrassing. Make a bigger set and stage the battle so it makes sense.

    How about: Asha and company break in, kill the guards in the room for some action. Asha talks to Theon. Theon screams for help, alerting Ramsay. Ramsay shows up, thinks of calling for help, but there is just one Ironborn between him and where the big cage of dogs is. Ramsay kills the guy so we see that Ramsay can fight, then he quickly releases his dogs, who kill an Ironborn or two that ran over to try to stop Ramsay. Asha and the survivors have enough room to go through a door and close it just before the dogs get them (or maybe one gets run down). Outside, they flee the building. The first dog to come out after them gets killed by one of the archers who stayed with the boat, so Ramsay calls the others back and the Ironborn escape.

    Default All things: GAME OF THRONES

    Two things that I'm trying to remember from old episodes. First, the last time Tyrion wanted a trial by combat, wasn't his first choice actually Jaimie? Second, I remember Tyrion telling a story about how he fell in love with a woman and found out later his dad paid her off. Is that what happened with Shae or am I reading too much into it?

    JD, I always think of The Golden Child and Last Action Hero when I think of Charles Dance. The highlight of both movies.

    Theon represents the best and worst that all these people have to offer. Was never smart/ambitious enough to 'play the game' yet, through some deeply f'd up circumstances wanted to prove himself. He found out he didn't have the stomach for it, and that was his undoing. I still feel there is a tremendous redemption waiting for him.
    Davos is the opposite. Knows his place and is the one thing that is terribly lacking...LOYAL. Even when he knows Stannis is wrong, he tries to help guide instead of bailing. The actor they cast could not have been better, even though he normally plays a heavy. Glad you are coming around, at least as far as Davos.


    Other stuff(end of non spoiler spoilers)

    Charles Dance is and has always been terrific. See Golden Child and Last Action Hero...a shining diamond in two turd-ish movies, as well as Aliens 3. Should have been a huge star. Nice to see him getting some love finally. And Littlefinger...I dunno. Man, that accent is so put on. I don't know if it's to highlight his delusions of grandeur or just a bad dialect decision. Tyrion as well sometimes lays the accent on a little too heavily. The other thing that bothers me about Littlefinger is that he has become this Bondian villain lately who does a lot of 'planning out loud'. Not too subtle for someone who is supposed to be such a schemer.
    And yeah Nocturn, Oberyn is waaaaaaaay better than the thumbnail I thought he was in the book. Not too subtle at first but once they got that out of the way there is a lot to like about him.
    I've always liked Davos but I seem to like him more with every scene he's in. Perfect casting. And yeah I remember Dance from Last Action Hero and especially Golden Child, I watched the crap out of that movie as a kid. I forgot about Alien 3... I wonder why he didn't get more roles, he plays a great villain. I'm glad he's finally catching a break, I'm guessing he won't have a shortage of offers once the show is done (or the show done with him).

    Yeah he definitely wanted Jamie as his Champion in the Eyrie, Lysa wouldn't have it though.

    Now that would be interesting if he picked him again. I've been thinking for the last few weeks that perhaps, after all this searching for a "hero" in this story, that it's actually going to be Jaimie in the end. Would never think it when the show started. Just a thought and I'm probably way off.

    Yep, he wanted Jaime but I think it would take too long for him to get there so they asked for a volunteer, and thus my moon and stars, sellsword Bronn, showed up.

    Tyrion did fall in love with a woman named Tysha and they were married for a few weeks. He had rescued her from an attempted rape. After they were married, Jaime confessed she was a prostitute and he had set the whole thing up. Tywin then had his guards rape Tysha while Tyrion was forced to watch....so not quite the same situation as Tyrion and Shae.
