I'm just going to post a few thoughts .. Arya Stark is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters and I hope her role continues to develop .. her relationship with The Hound and how they seem to inadvertently run back into each other time and again is compelling storytelling .. I think The Hound sees her as more as a daughter than anything, no matter what he says ..
Tyrion Lannister continues to evolve as the noble dwarf and has apparently caught the attention of a few that see beyond his size and past history .. I sensed that even Tywin seems to be gaining some respect for Tyrion ..
At one point, it was mentioned that "All the Stark men are now dead" .. I suppose other than Snow, Bran and Rickon are not yet considered men, yet would still seem to me to be a future threat ..
Piling the deaths of Robb Stark and Catelyn, on top of Eddard, was shocking to me .. especially after building up sympathy to this point ..
The finale, “Mhysa” .. essentially left us with 8 different plot threads .. and I'm sure we can expect the threat of the White Walkers will temporarily distract the warring kingdoms .. allowing Daenerys a way to infiltrate ..
A few of my favorite lines this season ..
Explain to me why it is more noble to kill 10,000 men in battle than a dozen at dinner.
You just sent the most powerful man in Westeros to bed without his supper.
I'm sure much, if not all of this, has been posted here .. I simply wanted to add a few thoughts
