Theres 4 now. Im not downloading it because it'd mean I'd have to wait 4 weeks for a new episode rather than a week!

Indeed. Unless there's a crazy cliff hanger, I'll take my time.

Imagine following someone around a forum and having to click an extra button because you have them on ignore just to read their posts and try to get a reaction. Life points = none.

As someone who has read the books I'm disappointed to see some of the changes they're making – I've watched every leaked episode btw.

I'M GONNA BE PISSED AS FUCK IF THEY HAVE INDEED KILLED SER BARRISTAN IN THAT MOB FIGHT AT THE END OF THE 4TH EPISODE!

I have only watched episode 1 but it wouldn't mean much if they got rid of him, tbh

It's not about getting rid of him, it's about how it was done. The man was supposed to be a legend – old or not – and the unsullied supposed to be really strong fighters, but then they're wiped by 20 random people with knives/daggers, I mean, COME ON.

I'm watching the episodes as they are aired by HBO so I haven't seen that, but if it is true, then that is a disappointment.

Major spoilers below.

  • I'm massively happy they brought back Jaqen Hghar. Merging him with the Kindly Man was a masterstroke.
  • I like the merging of the Jaime storyline with Arys Oakheart. Jaime does literally next to nothing in the fifth book apart from attend the Siege of Riverrun, so sending him to Dorne is an excellent choice. Speaking of Dorne, I love the casting for Doran and I'm pleased that Ellaria Sand has been given a prominent role following Oberyn's death. But another major part of this storyline is bringing Bronn back into the fold. TV Bronn is arguably one of the best characters, so having him there is a great, great decision, as he is moreorless written out of the books by this point.
  • The Varys/Tyrion scenes are fantastic. They have clearly decided to get rid of the Jon Conn/(f)Aegon storyline from the fifth book. I always believed this was a load of bullshit and was just another plotline GRRM came up with to deviate Tyrion from meeting Dany. Speeding that up makes perfect sense.
  • The Night's Watch election scene was fantastic, arguably the best scene in the show this season. Having Aemon cast the deciding vote was brilliant! Sam's speech was excellent and highlights why he is one of everybody's favourite characters.
  • The Brienne and Sansa scenes in the Vale are very, very interesting. Always nice to see Brienne kicking some ass like the absolute boss she is, but it makes me curious as to where they are going to take that storyline from here.
  • I hope they aren't writing Kevan Lannister out of the series. He does a great job in controlling Cersei in the books.

Overall what a fantastic episode!
