My heart is extremely broken. Watching that episode is like watching the Broncos lose.

I still have a loss for words on what I just witnessed.

That's being a little over dramatic don't you think? It's a great show and no doubt that was a very epic moment in the series so far. But to say your have a loss of words or that it compares to the Broncos losing is, as I said, a bit over dramatic.

I dunno, I too was pretty depressed for the rest of the night after seeing that. Broncos losses usually last a full day or two, so maybe not quite to that extent.

Lol, why, pray tell, is it over dramatic? I'd argue anyone really caring about sports is being over dramatic.

Well if you get that into TV shows then that's your business. This is a Broncos fourm, you know, sports. Are you saying everybody here is over dramatic because they care deeply that the Broncos win and when they don't and they get upset over a loss, that we're too invested? For real?

You're trying to compare a fictional character on a fantasy TV show to a real life flesh and blood team, and fans that cheer for and invest years and years, and money into this. Of course we're super invested emotionally. Look at the time commitment vs the few minutes of air time Rob Stark gets. It's not even like he was some main character on a TV series that you saw for years and years and then suddenly he was gone. Rob Stark had hardly any TV time the 1st year. The following years he maybe gets 15 minutes a week. How in the hell can you be emotionally tied to that? Yeah, it was a shock for a moment, but I thought it was actually kinda cool him and his mom died. Gave the series some umph if you ask me.

So is the lord of light going to bring anyone back. I kept thinking Ayra would grab Rob or her Mom and take him/her to the Brotherhood Without Banners and see if the priest would bring them back.

Well if you asked that on the other thread you might get an answer. On this thread we don't care to know. I'm just happy they offed a few important people. Now they can focus a little more on the rest. It's always great shock value when the likable characters die. You can't always just kill the bad guys right away. Gets too predictable. I was actually quite impressed and happy they did that.

I haven't read the books but speculating on what might happen is what makes a show fun. She was interested in if they could bring her dad back so it is reasonable to assume she might try it. I didn't like the mom though I won't miss her too much. I think I will miss the wolf most of all.

It's a matter of perspective. I'm sure there are millions of people who find people with emotional ties to sporting teams to be irrational. That doesn't mean they are right (or wrong).

I don't get the sense that the Lord of Light resurrection thing is going to be used much. It was really just that one guy who had the ability, and it doesn't seem like a series where they want dead characters coming back all the time. They want it to mean something with finality when someone gets killed. But more and more fantasy elements are coming in, so who knows.

From what I've heard, Catelyn wasn't a very likable character in the books. I have to say, though, I was sadder for her than Robb. The actress who plays her always did a great job with little air time, and unlike Robb (who was basically asking to get killed by starting a war against the Lannisters, beheading the leader of one ally, breaking a marriage vow against another crucial ally), she was only ever concerned with finding and protecting her scattered children. Horrifying way for her worst nightmares to come true.

Interested to see what backlash the Frey's face. On one hand, the Starks and their army are almost certainly decimated and pose little threat, and they have the backing of the Lannisters. On the other, there are still people in left in the north who will be pissed. Plus Littlefinger has gained some power and seemed to care for Catelyn. The Frey's were a useful pawn for Tywin, but they may have set themselves up for future conflict.

Very cool. He's already had warg-like dreams before but we've never seen him do it while conscious before. Warging into a human nonetheless is a large task. Kinda gives us a good glance into his power.

The only thing that was slightly confusing about that scene is the dead horse, as I thought he had something to do with that at first, not just the wildlings. Either way, good to see Bran's arc moving forward finally.

A lot of potential / powerful uses for that skill. Not sure where their 3-eyed raven hunt is headed, but after a seasons of tromping through the woods and having dreams, hopefully this power will thrust him back into the action with the other plotlines.

Someone somewhere else mentioned something interesting: despite how unconventionally shocking they were, the deaths of Ned then Robb and Catelyn really still set up a traditional child hero storyline. Parents get killed, orphaned children discover powers and abilities to survive and seek vengeance on their own. It's Batman, Harry Potter, etc. Question is how long Bran and Arya are kept on the sidelines before they are back in the fray. Or if they really are ultimately protagonists in RR Martin's plot.

Arya's entire character development revolves around her family being snuffed out completely in front of her. Poor girl

I just hope Bran survives somehow. They already took the most of the kid's family and his legs (effectively), I'd like to see him play a bigger role in the future. They seem to be laying the groundwork for that with his mind control powers.

But, seeing how the story is going so far, I'm sure he'll be killed in the most brutal way imaginable sooner or later.

BTW, "Hodor, stop hodoring!" is my favorite line of the series so far.

Warning, potential spoilers for anyone who hasn't watched the most recent episode.

Andy Greenwald writes a terrific recap every week. I have to agree with this:
Quote:
Through seven weeks, Iíve found the fourth season of Game of Thrones to be its most enjoyable by far.
I thought Oberyn's declaration that he'd be Tyrion's champion was a great moment.
Quote:
Pedro Pascal has been terrific all season, but he was never better than he was last night when he gave Tyrion a childhood memory that would have been better off forgotten.
I got a chuckle out of this:
Quote:
Would it be too fan-servicey to imagine a season finale in which Brienne and the Hound team up to rescue Sansa? And then reward themselves with a shopping montage at the Big and Tall outlet in the Riverlands? Probably.
Is this true?!? No GoT this week?!?
Quote:
There are two agonzing weeks until the next episode of Game of Thrones, but I canít help but think that the show has left us in the perfect place: on the precipice, staring down. Itís a sudden drop, but thereís a long way still to go.
