I agree. I thought that scene was about him telling Bronn what he thought he was supposed to say. I'm not convinced he is that mad over Tywin's killing.

Show is starting to lose me. Only so much misery you can expect a person to withstand.

i'm just glad you can depend on game of thrones writers punctuating an another boring season with more rape. what is it with dudes in writers' rooms lately that every show needs to have a general atmosphere of sexual assault at any minute? even in this fantasy land where anything could have been written, creepy ass dudes need to include forced sex. i'm not some prude, at all, but it does make me wonder what is with tv entertainment nowadays.

Poor Sansa, poor Theon. I really enjoy this show, but it does seem a bit hopeless at times.

At least you can still feel something.

I haven't experienced a single emotion since Red Wedding.

Echo the same sentiments of others, season is getting progressively worse for me.

If I remember correctly in the book it was even worse than that for Theon... although it wasn't with Sansa.

I wasn't referring to what I feel about the show. I was talking about Sansa and to a lesser extent Theon.

To me, that scene seemed like the writers were trying to say F You to the public outcry over Jaime's "rape" scene last year.

Definitely a filler episode but it did have a couple scenes that made go WTF. I believe we have seen the death of Bronn in that episode.

I'm still enjoying the series, but pretty much all of Season 5 has been a slow build up....I'm really hoping the last several episodes of the season get things moving and makes it worthwhile.

yep..he had to have been poisoned, IMO. Really bummed about it.

As far as the Sansa scene...I am glad most of these disturbing scenes are at the end of episodes...so I can skip them when/if I re-watch.

I won't stop watching, but this season has not been very good at all. Between the kings landing religious zealots, don't know what's going on with arya, Danny ****ing up all the time, Sansa and what's his name, the sick ****, reek, even tyrions role can't save it anymore when everything else sucks. He's just on the run and now waiting for his dick to get cut off and sold. Everything in that world is just completely hopeless. Hopefully we get something to hope for by the end of the season.

None of that kind of stuff bothers me at all, the only thing bothering me is how slowly things are moving along through 1/2 the season.

Doesn't sound like the depressing stuff has even happened yet.

The books are way worse. If you don't like your fantasy dark, brutal, and tragic this isn't your bag.

Reading this makes me understand why they had to skip book 4 entirely... So much more wood to pile on top of this fire.

The big thing about me is the lack of Euron Greyjoy and that whole story. It is a shame that is being left out because it's really enjoyable and crucial to the books, IMHO.

This happens in almost every form of publication or visual media.
Once something is established then the expectations go up in succession.
Fans have a tendency to feel that the writer or creator loses vision and goes off of the rails.
