I can't believe no one is lamenting the death of Margaery like you all did for Pretty Boy Snow.

I'm quickly being left with nothing but dragons to hold my attention.

I'll miss getting to see her naked, but as a character I've always found her to be a manipulative hussy, just like Cersi.

Well yeah, and she was great at it.

Since this is a music forum, I should point out that I thought the music in the season finale was perhaps the best of the year.
there is no explanation

The opening sequence especially.  It really added to the sense of dread.

Alright - late to the game but im fully invested at this point. Just finished season 4.

I've, admittedly, never been big on the 'fantasy' genre, but with some dedication - this series has sucked me in. It's has enough character development to keep me intrigued and I appreciate they have eased into the 'magic/unrealistic" aspects. That's what generally turns me off in other fantasy series...

I especially love how they keep killing off nearly every character you become emotionally evolved with. Who does that?!

Any word on how many seasons this series plans to go? I'm predicting a full on war with the white-walkers when "winter comes" as the pinnacle.  And that sexy dragon bitch has got something going for her. I look forward to her eminent collide with the rest of the western folk!

Word.

As far as future seasons go, there will be two more short seasons (7 episodes next summer, and 6 in 2018).

Annnnnnnnd I'm caught up.

Holy shit - was that ever a season finale.

It's strange to me (in a great way) how different that episode was in terms of cinematography compared to the rest of the series. Almost as if someone else directed/produced or something - just a completely different flow/vibe.

It felt like nearly every scene could have been the pinnacle of a movie and cut to the credits after. Epic. Tied everything together. Great show. Three thumbs up.  :wtu:

just finished watching the entire series again.
man i wish the final seasons were already out!
the final books arent even out yet are they?

anyway, a couple thoughts... skip the rest of my post if you're not caught up.

1st, from the very 1st episdoe to the last of this season Aria Stark's  storyline is my absolute favorite. she is an amazing actor and i 've loved each adventure she's been a part of from her Bravosy dance instuctor to the hound to the many faced god.
I can't wait to see how her quest to finsh off Circe and the Mountain comes to conclusion.

2nd I've always loved the thread of the 6 Dire Wolves and now I'm rooting for Ghost and have a hope that the only other wolf left ,  Aria's, somehow reappears and finds her.

--and lastly, i had a question- so in the final episode when BRan has his vision of his aunt dying and we find out JOhn was her son not his fathers... from all i coulld gather the father must then be the Targarian that raped her right? or could it have been Robert berathian? i wasnt 100% sure Robert hadnt been with her but the only mention of her beforehand was about her getting raped so i'm assuming that means JOhn is half stark half Targarian , right?

Rhegar Targaryen is John Snows father, and he didn't rape Lyanna, they were in love. The whole thing is much better explained in the books. He and Lyanna running off together just so happened to coincide with the mad King going bat-shit crazy and losing the kingdom for the Targaryens. Roberts Rebellion wouldn't have gained as much steam if people thought that his woman had run off with another man instead of her being kidnapped.
