    I'm mainly waiting for the scene where Jamie Lannister fights Rand from the Wheel of Time series. Do you think they'll do that this season?

    I looked out this morning and the sun was gone
    Turned on some music to start my day
    I lost myself in a familiar song
    I closed my eyes and I slipped away

    Had a feeling when Cersei told Tywin the truth about her and Jaime, and stood up to him against her marriage to the Rose Prince. Whether she will admit it or not, I'm sure she got her resolve from watching Tyrion stand up against his father at the trial.

    Tywin's days were numbered when his fearful children started to not fear him any more. Dying at the hands of Tyrion was just desserts. The father who resented him, who took part in framing him for a murder he did not commit, would be murdered by his very son. The ultimate act of usurping his power. Killing him at his most undignified.

    What bugged me: WHY couldn't Brienne give Arya the breaded wolf? They were this close. Augh!!

    Random thoughts: Ned Stark's brother from the Night Watch, he's still out there? Unaccounted for, right?

    I ship Brienne and Jaime so hard. I hope they happen.

    Wow. Some things were predictable, some things were just pretty crazy.

    Yeah, Benjen or something? I think he's unaccounted for.

    Basically on this show, if I don't see someone die, then I don't accept they are dead.
    After all, when someone DOES die, they tend to go over the top.

    To be honest, my mind was more blown by the Mountain/Viper fight.

    Here, pretty much all of it (except for maybe the scene with everyone's favorite ... lady of the night) was kinda predictable or at least made sense even if not specifically anticipated.

    I find Tywin's power of denial amazing... to the degree he couldn't even really realize -- after all of Tyrion's responses -- what things he should and should not say and what would truly set Tyrion off.

    Yes.

    I like how they take moments where we might be tempted to relish (like Tyrion and Arya getting revenge) and make it so bitter sweet. The undermining of audience (emotional and narrative) expectation over and over again in this series is so brilliant. I read an observation that the show (and the books) basically subverts traditional fairy tales and even storytelling in general by killing off hero archetypes and the related sentimental and moralistic tropes. Good people die for nothing. True love ends in misery. Revenge is dissatisfying. Evil goes unpunished. Righteousness is elusive. Life is brutal. And yet it never feels like they're being deliberately contrary to mess with us. It feels like a harsh dose of reality and complexity, which elevates the story and makes it much more engaging.

    Did anyone else watch the fight between The Hound and Brienne and feel rather conflicted about who you wanted to win?

    This was a really good episode. I bet that's why they skipped a week, just so they could show it on Father's day. Well played.

    I thought Benjen was the tree guy at first in the book, but I'm pretty sure he's dead.


    I wonder what happened to the guy that's walking around with Ned Stark's bones. Nobody knows what he's up to.

    Did you guys like the look on Arya's face when the Hound was talking to her there, and trying to goad her to do something for him? (and boy, he pulled out the stops, even making stuff up.)

    I couldn't read her at all. It was fascinating.

    Yup, especially considering most people who lose fights seem to die on this show.

    Reading online to the barest degree possible, I see that the book community apparently is arguing about whether Benjen is alive, dead, living dead, or some other permutation.

    No one seems to know the answer to that one either.
