Arya is not riding Sandor’s horse.She’s riding her own.(His horse was black and her’s white.)

Why do people still like Arya? She’s a revenge obsessed, dead eyed, cold blooded girl. She’s lost all the qualities that made her likable. I’ll be surprised if she survives the series if she continues the way she’s going. Even Maisie said that she thinks people shouldn’t like her character anymore. But people continue to root for her because she’s “badass.” If Arya was an adult no one would like her right now.

People like her because she is only killing the bad guys thats why. This is not 50 shades of grey its GoT. You play or you die. She is at least playing with some sort of morals or values (as much as you can have at this point in this setting during war). She leaves innocents alone for the most part, but she also does what she needs to do to survive. SURVIVAL is key here. Because as much as we would like to think of her as an adult, her character IS still a child. She is one of my favorite characters.

It wasn’t silver it was an iron coin that Arya gave to the captain. I haven’t read the books but I take it that she’s going to Braavos to find Jaqen.

Wow,wonderful recap ,Amanda ,you didn’t mention Melisandre’s predating and “sex-starved “look at Jon Snow…….Bran’s child-like innocence of walking again, dawned on me how soon I had forgotten he was still a child.Even though I am still not aware of his purpose in the grand scheme of things,however ,I know he still has a score to settle with jamie(for attempted murder) .Well no scene from Sansa and little finger (like I care ,huh)And “NO” I will not read the book and don’t want replies from spoilers

I really didnt like how Brienne won the fight to the hound. I’m cool if Brienne wins the fight, but the whole show the hound is shown to be regarded as one of the best fighters in westeros and has killed multiple people of note and sparred with the mountain giving him a good fight until it was interupted. Brienne is portrayed as her telling people she is good and has never beaten anyone of any note. And she struggled to defeat a starved in chains Jamie, only winning because he was too exhausted. That said, Jamie was considered to be one of the strongest ever so might be unfair to judge her badly for it. But he was starved and in chains.

If Brienne outsmarted him or used the “wench” thing to her advantage to surprise him and strike, fair enough, but to straight up just overpower him when she is considerabley smaller in muscle mass and out fight him when he should be better trained made no sense.

I believe in the books they never fought and the same situation happened but with 2 trained knights and the hound was drunk and hadnt eaten yet and killed one of them before falling to exhaustion from hunger.

It just felt like an adult and a child fighting, and instead of the child winning through cunning or trickery, overpowers the adult to win.

You’re forgetting that the Hound was basically dying of blood poisoning anyway after the incident with Biter. It’s pretty safe to say he wasn’t up to his full strength.

Arya stated he was slowing down due to the infection in a previous episode, which does shed a bit more light on the fight scene. Regardless, I still expected more from the hound.

So bumed no more Sandor. He and Arya’s banter and buddy-system were the best.

Well in the writers/producers defense: The Hound was wounded & badly at that yet he never did get the festering thing taken care of, maybe this contributed to Brienne being able to overpower him.

I’m so tempted to read the book after tonight episode. But I resist, one day at a time, one day at a time. Didn’ like how Arya left hound to die or not to die, who knows? Hound was the only truthsayer in GOT. Can’t wait for next season. I guess its safe to read the first book now.

I tried to read the books but was already engrossed in the TV Series and found the books held no fascination for me because of the show. The pleasure of reading, in my humble opinion, lies in the suspense of not knowing what will happen. Since I already knew who died and what not (at least through season 3), I couldn’t get into the books. And I’m a voracious reader.
