    I thought at this point in the book, he was supposed to be like 9 or 10. He's a bit younger than Bran is supposed to be. Of course, everybody on the TV version is a few years older than they are in the books.

    Methinks Tommen had a meeting with the hand of the king after that.

    Yep. Tommen is 9 when he becomes King. Hell, I think Joffery is only 13/14 in the books when he bites the dust.

    Osha took Rickon and split up from Bran and the Reeds. I cannot recall where exactly they were headed though.

    I think we've reached the point where the books and the series diverge widely.

    Well considering the books are all downhill from here save for a couple scenes at the end of SOS, I don't really mind.

    I miss Vargo Hoat talking like Sylvester the Cat. Every time he spoke it was pure comedy

    This is a pun worthy of the works of Chaucer.

    Just a weird episode. That final scene was cool but totally ridiculous.

    Maybe we can pretend this episode never existed? Although interesting to see GoT double down on the rape scenes (at Craster's Crib) after the brouhaha of last week. I know of course that these episodes are filmed way in advance but the timing makes for a nice middle finger extended to one's critics

    what was so divergent in the episode from the book?

    so far this season feels pretty weak.

    i hate cersei, what a piece of trash that woman.

    The big problem with this episode was that they're expounding on a bunch of stuff that didn't need expounding, and without an obvious point. Do we need to know that the mutineers are extra rapey douchebags, much less get an extended rape-a-thon? What purpose is being served by the White Walker altar + baby torture porn scene? Wouldn't a "White Walker kills a ranger in badass fashion" be good enough to keep us paying attention to that plot?

    pretty much every scene was rearranged or completely fabricated.

    most notably, Bran and the rest of people north of the Wall. Samwell doesn't tell John Snow he has seen Bran. Snow (up until this point in the books) assumes Bran and Rickon are dead. Bran isn't near Craster's Keep. Ghost is never captured. Etc etc etc

    The whole Mereen thing was completely glanced over as well. At this point, Dany finds out the true identity of Selmy. Selmy also notifies her that Jorah is sending info about her to Westeros, hence why Tywin et al know she has dragons. She pissed at both of them and actually send them into Mereen hoping they would die.
