Nah, they will just knock him on the head (early), but they will make up for it with another added sex scene.
Huddles are for rookies.
Well Renly is dead so they better not.
I will be pissed if they do that.... There is all kinds of awesome to pimp out the imp in "blackwater."
One of the last two episodes is about to start... This sucks it's almost over for the year...
OMG that was the best GoT episode ever. Period. End of convo.
Acting was awesome. The House and Bronn were badass!
F=cking awesome!!! FAce rocked off!!!!!
The wildfire explosion and the rocks bashing heads in rocked as well... They didn't do the imp justice on how he cut through a zillion men tho...
It was good, there can be better. Sorry, at least this one followed the books. If the effing directors get off their high horse, this can be a great TV series.
Now knowing what 1995 is like all over again! Thank you 247 technology!!
Pretty damn good episode. Glad they didn't just skip over the battle like they previously.

Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
Great episode. I don't Geoffrey will last much longer, will be interesting to see how he is received by the others in Episode 10. I too will be reading the books between seasons. Great stuff.
I never understand people that want TV shows and movies to be EXACTLY like the books.
1. It would be basically impossible to do so. The detail and subtlety in 500+ pages would take tens of hours to cover, and even then, it probably wouldn't be enough.
2. You'd already know EXACTLY what was going to happen. Where's the fun in that?
I'm not saying piss all over the source material but rather do it justice. And thus far, if you think HBO has not, you're a bit of a literary snob IMO.
HBO has done an excellent job, although I haven't read the books so I can't say in that regard.
My only complaint is that there is only 10 episodes per season. It seems all the great shows have such short seasons, meanwhile the "Real Houswives of Topeka" or what the hell ever have like 76 episodes per season. Sometimes I was I was a moron so I could see more episodes of my favorite shows.
HBO really does love the 10 episode miniseries format and it's worked well for them so I guess we really can't blame them. That, and even with the "deserving cast" of shows like Real Housewives, I imagine tonight's episode alone cost more to produce than an entire season of the aforementioned garbage. Hopefully I'm not wrong, 'cause that'd be depressing.
They have done 12 episode seasons as well.
I wish they would do that for this show instead of crunching so much into 10 episodes.
I haven't been happy with all of the changes they have made on the show but for the most part it hasn't been anything major.
Like I said, don't go pissing all over the source material, but I've got no problem with them changing things. For better or worse (hopefully better), I don't REALLY need to see the EXACT same story that I already know.
They commented prior to the season that they did not get the budget that they wanted for this episode. You could tell. So much was left out, and I feel they did not grasp the scale of the battle at all. Tough to do with a limited budget, and you absolutely had to have the wildfire scene.
Still have not seen
Still bummed they left out Tyrions chain.
I knew they were going to since they hadn't even mentioned it all season.
ughhhhhh... great episode. pissed what happened to Imp. cant wait for geoffry to die, hes such a little punk ass bia.
It was an awesome episode. The wildfire was badass... and Geoffrey talking all that ish about "hearteater"... cant wait to see him get his...
I've been disappointed that he's lives through all these episodes. I could see his character being drawn out just bc everyone hates him and they stay tuned in just to see him die.
