    I have not read the books, is it still safe in here? as soon as two or more book readers get together my eyes glaze over.

    I accidentally dropped a minor spoiler a few pages back. Just don't travel too far.

    Probably not the thread for you then.

    There is literally a single spoiler (a minor one at that) in this thread and it is marked as SPOILER. 99.9% of this thread is about the show.

    He was likely responding to this "as soon as two or more book readers get together my eyes glaze over." There are certainly multiple book readers here. That doesn't mean anyone is shouting spoilers without warning.

    Having read the books there was a bit of foreshadowing in the beetle conversation between Tyrion and Jamie (above the skull smashing), but if you didn't read the books no way you would ever connect it.

    that's why I asked. I saw it was heading to a book/tv discussion(therefore the glazed eyes reference) so I stopped reading. not everyone uses spoiler etiquette. I usually don't cry about spoilers if it's just me being behind. but I would like to have no idea what's coming. I understand what it's like I read the walking dead comics I try not to let things slip.

    The battle at Castle Black last night consumed the whole show. Not as memorable as previous episode 9 shows have been.

    I enjoyed it. But I was really disappointed that they didn't finish the battle the next morning. It's one of my favorite chapters in the entire book series and they've pushed it back to next week where it will be overshadowed by everything else that happens. The wasted too much time on Sam and Gilly fluff.

    I liked the stuff with Sam & Gilly. The show has handled their relationship better than the books did.

    On my re-read of A Storm of Swords I was surprised how much time passed in between the main battles at the Wall and the eventual ending. I can see why the show ended the episode where they did.

    I totally understand why they pushed it back. In reality the battle spanned multiple Jon POV chapters. Also the end would give the episode too much feel good for GoT tv watchers. Ending it with hope seeming lost and Jon Snow marching out to what a tv watcher would assume is his doom is much better tv.

    I'm reading the books, but I'm behind the shows. I did not like last night's show. Seemed to be a relatively pointless battle considering it was just a probe. It played to me more like a Hollywood Summer blockbuster than a GOT episode. It was there to wow us, not to give us more of what the show's about.

    That's too bad, because the preview seems to show way too much is going to be smashed into the final episode. It has a 66 minute run time, the longest episode so far, but I don't think it will be enough.

    I really dug it. I didn't get the summer blockbuster feel from it. Neil Marshall is a great director for that episode and I think he knocked it out of the park.

    I am curious as to how they are going to do next week. I have been looking forward forward to see how they handle at least 2 key issues. I suspect a lot of controversy with people loving/hating it.

    Episode felt rushed. They should have spread out some of that over a couple episodes and shortened some stuff from earlier in the season.
