  1. Good as usual, but a little to leisurely for my tastes. Burn Gorman was tremendous, however. Shame he had to go!

    • But what a way to go!

      There was a lack of major action this week, for sure (at least until the last 5 minutes or so), but I liked the way so many of the scenes held together thematically, raising questions about characters’ decisions, power and position. I thought Arya reciting the Hound’s name in front of him was wonderful – although surely he must have heard her nightly prayer before on their travels?
