I am pissed they killed off Ygritte. I am partial to redheaded Scottish girls.
I also agree that overall this episode was heavy-handed and tedious -- not the quality of production and performance to which we have grown accustomed.
I never liked Ygritte or any of the Wildlings. All I can think of is how they're all overacting.
I do agree though that it wasn't up to par with most of the other episodes. I think they could have cut the entire battle in half and made it more intense.
With all of that said, I still love everything about the show and can't wait for next season....and hopefully the next novel before they run out of material for the show.
They absolutely have a LOT to cover during next weeks episode. Crossing my fingers!!
WARNING: I've heard that Sunday's episode is going to run 66 minutes (!!). Anyone with a DVR might want to extend the recording in case yours doesn't do it automatically....I know mine doesn't.
