    Also remember, that the previous seasons each encompassed an entire book, where this season only covers half of what many consider to be the best book in the series. So yeah, each of the previous seasons ended with a bang, but that was because of how each book ended. Trust me, next season will blow your ****ing minds away.

    Solid episode, probably an A-. Arya's line to Sandor about where she got the knife to go stabbity-stab was great. Also the stabbity-stabbing. As usual, the new material was just as good as what Martin wrote (the Varys / Shae scene was gold), but the most impressive part was that the producers could show me a scene where a character I can't stand is heading out to rescue a character I can't stand and I'm cheering (in my head).

    However, I can't believe they did not get to the point I thought they were going to get to. I would have expected them to leave out half the scenes in this episode to get there, or have had an 11th episode.

    But at least we could end the season with Mary Sue having more things fall right in her lap. As much credit as I have to give Emilia Clarke for making me dislike Dany less than in the books, the writers set things up such that I end up disliking her even more. Shouldn't the freed slaves be hoisting up Jorah, Grey Worm, and Daario?

    Seriously Doc...if you can't feel sorry for Theon, even a little, at this point...you MAY be a sociopath. Talk about the punishment FAR exceeding the crime. As far as e'erything else...Ecktore made a great point. This is basically the midpoint of a book, so there is a bit of an Empire Strikes Back kind of feel. And...like King In The West, I thought they were going to get to another event that might have swayed SmythKing's opinion...but I am glad they didn't. It would have felt rushed and it encourages me that the producers are in for the long haul instead of pandering to finales. Look. Last week was the finale for all intents and purposes. This was the touch bases with all characters and leave you wanting more set-up. Jamie came home. Sam and Jon made it back to the wall. Dany went all Courtney Love minus the unpleasant fingering...and that 'orrible little **** Joffrey got a subtle clue that the crown does not give you power. All in all the perfect end to a terrific season. What more could you want?

    By the way...book readers(no spoilers remember) have you been happier with the Davos storyline? The advanced placement has given it more relevance. Maybe now some of you can see why he, besides Theon, is one of my favorite characters. Gendry has been really strong too. 'Big words...no clothes, what would you have done?'

    It's the true blood method - 2nd to last episode is massive action/any surprises, season finale is to set up next season.

    Yes, but I think it's because I'm a fan of the actor more than the character. He's doing a great job of making me like Davos.

    Funny thing is, they really couldn't have cast it any better. Liam Cunningham has long been a great actor(Dog Soldiers/Centurion to name a few). The placement in the books always seemed out of sorts. Either long after current events played out or appearances spaced so far apart that it made the entire Mellisandre/Davos/Stannis storyline seem like an afterthought. Now at least, the 'fourth' king is in play instead of him feeling like an also ran. Davos may be the last truly innocent man in the seven kingdoms. From a petty smuggler comes the most selflessly motivated Game movements.
