I just hope no one rapes/eats Gilly in Moles Town. :-/
I wanted to slap some sense into Sam as he was abandoning Gilly to the dung heap that is Mole Town.

About the debated sex scene:
"the episode's director, Alex Graves, says it was 'consensual by the end.'" (from the episode wikipedia page)
Did anyone else feel kinda bad for the horse who just got throwing knifed?
I'm going to watch episode 2 this weekend. expect my review Monday morning. hopefully no horses die.
Horse deserved it. Did you see how it was dressed?

Real life LOL at "Whorse".
I don't like Rapist Jaime, but the 4th book was so dull I feel like the showrunners can go crazy to keep us interested. Or they can just abandon all Greyjoy nonsense and say us a lot of fast forwarding time.
That episode was probably the biggest deviation from the books yet.
I haven't read the books, but holy shit, the ending of last night's episode was so fucking awesome.
Awesome/cheesy is the line that this show constantly tiptoes.
I thought the cinematography was brilliant. i love the vertical shots and the sweeping camera work. That episode form front to back was one of the more visually impressive one in the entire series I though. I have also just jumped in the deep end of the pond, so whatever they want to throw at me, I am totally on board. I love it whenever all the really hard fantasy stuff happens.
That was an episode where the show watchers should have filmed reactions from the book readers. I was going nuts. I can see how a show watcher might find it cheesy, but if you're a full blown song of ice and fire geek, it's a massive reveal.
I thought the last episode was great. I haven't read the books, so I don't know how the show is deviating from them, but this episode is certainly setting up an interesting course of events. I think something will happen to fuck it up, but the impending reunions of Sansa and Arya, and Jon and Bran are very interesting. Also, things seem to going too well for Danny. I feel like something bad is going to happen soon.
And I agree with Drinkey. The whole episode was gorgeously shot.
When they stabbed Hodor I almost od'd on ragehol. I have never wanted a character to die so much in the course of this show. Which made me realize that's one line I hate to see crossed. I wasn't really affected by their raping, pillaging, and baby sacrificing, but something about tormenting a mentally ill person struck a nerve.
