    I didn't know if it was or not when I posted, and I also didn't want to "ruin the mystery" for others who might be thinking about it, if they wanted to try to figure it out for themselves. Just a courtesy.

    I thought the last episode worked better than Blackwater. Blackwater didn't feel as epic to me as it should have.. to the point where I was worried they were going to cut all that cool stuff atop the wall. This episode, though, delivered, and surpassed my expectations. I tend to feel like this show works best when it takes the time to focus more on one location, rather than moving things along slowly episode by episode. Not saying that I'd like all episodes to be one location only next season (that won't happen), but I'd like more longer scenes like the one with Arya and the Hound that closed the premiere.
    It depends on the threads they're dealing with, and I do think in some episodes they've done a really fine job with thematically tying together disparate but parallel narrative threads in an episode; but yeah, there is something to be said about focus. I admit it's pretty much the most I've been able to care about the Jon Snow storyline, despite liking his character.

    (Note the jumping around is part of Martin's own book structure.)

    Blackwater was pretty underwhelming to me, even as a non-book-reader. To me, it came across as a production/budget/time issue rather than how they wanted to handle it, I'm sure. But yeah -- a bunch of burning ships in the harbor, and what looked like a 25x25 yard with people fighting. Not particularly epic or frightening.

    Oh, and I really liked this sentence, by the way. It's awesome.
    Thanks, I was on a roll.... lol.

    ^ put in spoiler tags. Thanks, Nico, I was speculating but might be revealing something that's not yet revealed.

    Only a few more days until the Season 4 66-minute finale.
    Kind of crazy that I've already seen spoiler articles up about it.

    That would be a gamechanger.

    Fans of the A Song Of Ice And Fire novels and the TV adaptation A Game Of Thrones know that horses appear frequently in the series. Some people assume that when I wrote these books, I must have had at least a passing knowledge of horses, but the truth is that when I began, I’d never seen a horse in my life. In fact, I had absolutely no idea what horses even looked like.

    I knew horses were animals of some kind, but beyond that, my entire conception of the way these animals actually looked was based on hearsay and my own speculation.

    Best bit -- Brienne at 9:01, I want to just clip that snippet out and post it somewhere!

    PS. No spoilers really (for Season 4 at least), it's all before Season 4 came out so they were careful.

    EDIT: 10:35 -- omg, Cersei actually smiles.
