- It was nice to see that sweet little scene between Sansa and Tyrion. I like Sansa, but she infuriated me when she whined and pouted when she learned she was going to be married to Tyrion. Yes, he’s shorter than you, but you were going to be wed to JOFFREY at one point!!! Surely Tyrion is head and shoulders (pun intended) above Joffrey? And what exactly are your other options? Littlefinger, with his creepy, whispery, wannabe seductive voice? No, thanks. Sansa should be grateful to be wed to one of the few men who is capable of treating her with kindness and respect. I suspect, however, that Sansa will not be so kind to Tyrion now, now that she knows his family murdered her mother and brother.
- Did you love Tywin sending Joffrey to bed as much as I did? Joffrey was giddy and so very gleeful to pass on the news of Robb’s and Catelyn’s murders, and Tywin, the man responsible, was having none of it. When Tywin explained his justification for those murders (better to kill a few people than an army of 10,000), I actually found myself agreeing with him. Also, Tywin choking up when he told Tyrion how he spared his life at birth was very moving; we got to see one tiny crack in Tywin’s facade.
- I know people are going to have problems with the imagery of the light-skinned, luminous Dany rescuing the down-trodden, dark-skinned slaves. I assume the racial descriptions came directly from Martin and that the producers decided to keep it intact. I didn’t love the imagery at the end, but it was not because of the darker-skinned people fawning over a lighter-skinned woman. I don’t really care for the idea of any human worshiping another, and Dany seemed a little too pleased with the attention. With her dragons and the armies of people she is converting in every city, she seems unstoppable. It seems inevitable that Martin will throw some obstacles in her path.
- Thank you for not killing Gendry!
- I thought Sam left the magical Night Walker-killing knife behind. Glad to know he picked it up!
- I hope Theon is either killed or rescued by his sister early in season 4. I can’t take much more of his torture scenes. His father’s refusal to step in may not have been compassionate, but it made sense from a strategic position.
- I wonder if The Hound has gotten himself removed from Arya’s kill list.
- Stannis has become very reliant of magic. It would be nice if that same magic somehow becomes his downfall.
- I hope Shae doesn’t regret not fleeing with those diamonds. What kind of life will she have now that Tyrion is married to Sansa?
- Jamie is a very different man than he was before he was kidnapped. I’m not sure if Cersei will still love this new man.
I don’t think I can hold off reading the books for much longer. I think I may at least read through book three before the start of the fourth season.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on the finale! But no book spoilers, please!
