    The Ramsey thing is reaching stupid levels of the people one level under the actors are the most psychologically implausible people conceived. You killed the king, your mother-in-law, and your baby brother, sure I guess we have to put you in charge, since your a named character, go lead us in war. How would you even begin to explain that to the various lower lords that command your army.

      Spoken like someone who hasn’t read much history… plenty of people have done as bad or worse and been rewarded with much more power than Ramsey now has.

    Man, the Mountain just smooshed that guy like a grape single handed. That was wonderfully gross. Are you hyped for the Cleganebowl? I’m hyped.

    At first, I thought the opening flashback was Bran and Rickon, and was surprised at the foresight they had in filming it back then.

    The stuff with Jaime and the Sparrow was fantastically tense, though at the time I was thinking “That’s an awful lot of steps, a man his age could slip and fall and really hurt himself, you know.”

    I’d forgotten that Balon was the fifth King, I thought Mance was the fifth King. Joffrey, Robb, Stannis, Renly, Mance. I guess that’s what they get for cutting the Ironborn plot out.

    I feel like we’ve not been introduced to the three-eyed raven well enough. He got an interesting but very brief introduction two years ago and then this episode just treats him as practically a background character. I don’t feel like he’s properly established. I had a similar problem with Jojen, as I only picked up his name much later, thanks to the internet.

    There’s some interesting stuff going on with Ramsay, he’s got this strange reaction when he’s feeding his stepmother and brother to the wolves. I don’t fully know how to describe it.

    And I see what they did there: Kit Harrington would only agree to come back to the show if they would cut his hair.
