Great finale of an okay season. This was the first season that I really noticed the problem of it having too many storylines going on at once. I thought the big moments in this season were missing a bit of a punch, especially the whole Tyrion/Tywin/Shae arc. Shae just turned into an absolute bitch out of nowhere, and I didn't buy it. She was such a devoted and noble woman when she was with Tyrion, and within about five combined minutes of screentime throughtout this season, she turned into a vindictive cunt who could be bought by the Lannisters, wanted Tyrion dead, and was sleeping with.....Tywin? I get how it's supposed to be a very low move by Tywin, and be the final straw for Tyrion, but I thought the whole scenario was pretty sloppily put together, and rushed.

Enough of the negativity though. That Hound/Brienne fight was SPECTACULAR. Medievil movies could learn a thing or two from that scene. Swordfighting isn't some choreographed dance. It's two people swinging pieces of sharp metal at each other, and it gets dirty and rough. People get puched, bitten, and sometimes they get kicked square in the box. Such an awesome fight, and a great end to the Hound/Aria story. It was probably the best arc all season.

Overall, it's probably my least favorite season, but still pretty damn good and head and shoulders above any other show on the air right now.

It's going to be another looooong 9 months.

Great post. I loved this past season, but all of criticisms are valid.
