Well, last night's episode was insane. Next Sunday, we get the Neil Marshall episode. I'm looking forward to the season ending just so I don't get all ramped up on Sundays and scream at the TV at 9:59pm.

I just downloaded it at 5.54m per second... 'cause Europe rocks.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

Just watched it...

Bastards giving false hope.

Hey, Neil Marshall, you have an unlimited budget to make a 60 minute battle sequence that's unrelenting and slaughters 20% of our secondary and tertiary cast and is utterly off the chain.

Up for it?

"Yes."

It was a bit disappointing.

What? It was insane! The entire episode was the battle! We got major character shifts, we axed a whole bunch of secondary characters. It was a gamechanger episode. There are giants, super-bows, exploding barrels, flaming arrows, heads being chopped off, blood flying... Characters who have been generally without motivation for four seasons all found their place in the larger story, bad guys got their comeuppence (something rarely done on GoT), Gilly gets a kiss!

Also -- the Neil Marshall debate continues! Monkey's reaction is the whole theme of that thread in the movie forum.

Now, while I stand by my post above, I do have two big questions:

1) There's about 70 miles of completely undefended wall, right? Why didn't Mance attack elsewhere, where he could work at his leisure to breach the wall? Surely the tunnels, sealed or not, could be dug out by the giants?

2) If sealed tunnels are that much of an issue that Mance has no choice but to attack the most heavily defended section of the wall, then why doesn't Jon just seal Castle Black's tunnel?  He knows that Wildlings able to climb the wall are few and far between, and can be easily dealt with. No artillery, except for the giant bows, can reach the defenders. They've defeated the Wildlings on the other side of the wall. They're actually in the perfect defensive position...and Jon decides to leave?!?!

Because Jesus - or John Snow - must travel through his testing ground without fucking some ginger bitch and deal with the devil.

Or... something.

I would think his testing ground was being forced to assume the command of -- what? -- 12 surviving Watch against an army of 100,000 during a siege that has no hope of relief.

Nope - there must always be a solitary exploration to find the oracle/beast.

Which every single other character on the show is also doing!

What I really want is for them to stop doing the comically close chance meeting of two Starks. That's been this season's Plot B.
