The last scene alone was enough to confirm I should be watching this show. Epic!

Tyrion's expression as the Red Viper makes it personal is priceless.

My wife couldn't watch the last scene because she knew it was coming...I had to rewind it to show her Tyrion's expression and accidently rewound to his head laying with the brains all over and she yelled at me

I am still shocked at the amount of people that don't know what is coming...the next two episodes are going to be fantastic...but then...meh

I LOVE that I don't know what's coming and that no one is safe - except Tyrion and Arya - I want to know that they will always be safe  ;)

I haven't read any of the books or anything Scott, though I want to...  I just don't have the time to devote to getting into a book and finishing it these days.  I've had 8 cars to fix, and I'm not a mechanic, haha.  That doesn't even touch on the houses between mine and hers, football with the kids and their offseason schedules.  And oh, yeah, work.  ::)

I'm amazed I get time to watch GoT even.  I squeeze it in though.

I'm just really annoyed right now I lose a character I really thought would be bigger going forward, now nada.  Buuuuuuuttttttttt, I guess he has a bro, and I'd think his bro is pretty po'd.

Did the Mountain die?  Got stabbed but did he die?  I assume that would be answered next week but couldn't tell this week.

The Red Viper got in a few cuts with his spear.  And he definitely drove the spear into the Mountain's body.  The Mountain was most certainly not dead at the end of the episode, but he's definitely in bad shape.  His eventual fate is very likely going to get expanded upon down the line.  But in the interest of keeping the discussion spoiler free I'll leave it at that.

OK that was all I needed to hear (I like to stay spoiler free on it if possible).

I have a buddy who read the books and I'll ask him questions he simply refuses to answer.

I'd love to think that about a lot of characters, but after reading the books, I try not to get too attached to characters now, because like life anything can happen...  not saying anything about Tyrion and Arya... just in general.

Just like pretty much everyone in the story has a good side and a dark side... there are a few exceptions to this being that a character's time in the story is limited so they come off one-sided, so to speak.

Yeah....  After Ned got beheaded, it was pretty clear that NOBODY was safe.  EVER.

That being said, do I think that George R.R. Martin has a plan for certain characters?  Yeah.  But I also think he's fully prepared to bury more than a few main characters before we get to the end.

Even though i knew it was coming, WOW!!!  :o Very awesome and gruesome visual. I had an idea about how i thought the seasonw as going to end, with the character reveal that was at the end of book 3, not sure if we will get that this season now.

If only they had Bunny from Platoon there to comment about the outcome of the Red Viper's duel with the Mountain....

I was hoping it was going to happen last season, so I'm 99% sure we're going to get it this year.

Saw this on the Internets.... donate some money and you could have a character named after you and in a very GoT-themed way... murdered.

I'm new to the show, but picked up the first two seasons this morning at a garage sale.  Box sets 1 & 2 for $24.  How many seasons are there?

Fourth one is about to wrap up on HBO now, three that are out on DVD and Blu-ray.

Might be best for you to avoid this thread if you care about spoilers...
