The first victim and the manner of attack, that's what made it more shocking for me.
I always sensed something was not right at that reception.

It was shocking because nobody saw that double-cross coming... then the way all three ah dem get wipe out.  Shit... the simply fact that so many major characters get eliminated all at once.  That was unprecedented in this series... of course it wsa shocking.

equally shocking in the book too. Having read the book I was anxiously waiting for this episode. Wanted to see how they presented it. I was not disappointed.

The author say he want people to be shocked and grieve for his characters when they die.
He say if somebody dies and you go for more popcorn, then it was a superficial experience.

Man, bess eps for the year...Almost as good as Spartacus.  Still shocked that in one ep, he kill off so many good characters.  Yep Moms, went out like ah badess, but I think they should have seen it coming.  Can't wait for next week, but I don't know who to follow anymore.  I want to follow Snow, but we know how that ends.  I guess it's the imp for me and maybe Jamie and Rango Tango or Sam

I was talking to a book geek today, kool fellar, who is into books like this show. He told me about stuff that is yet to come..one being a woman called "lady stone heart". He told me about the Red wedding months ago, but I did not pay much attention, cause he does talk a lot lol. Anyway lady stone heart is Rob Snow mother that gets brought back from the dead by the red priest and she is filled with revenge. She is not the same person as before, sounds like she will be merciless. He said she has the scar on her neck and she covers it to talk. He told me a lot of other stuff. Like I said he talks a lot .

Can anyone confirm this? O and arie turns out to be a serious killer in a good way I guess.

Once more, Episode 9 for the third consecutive series end up being the most compelling.  The Season Finale was another anti-climax.  Whole season Whitewalkers marching on Winterfell and dey cyah reach yet.

Kinda tired ah de blonde, blue-eyed savior thing they pushing with Daenerys. 

Jamie reach home... John Snow too... Starks and dem decimated.  Season in a nutshell.

Yeah, everybody was vex when they though Sam dropped the only dagger he had that could kill the White Walkers.

And that last scene with Danaerys was nauseating. I've said it before but I don't like how all the slaves and 'savages' seem to be a particular hue of people. I think we've seen the White saviour motif enough times, no?  ::)

Yeah it was particularly noticeable and discomfiting this time... the whole "misa/mother" thing was cringe-inducing.  Before FF start... the way the story is written it probably does make sense that the 'brown' people are found in the warmer climes, presumably further south where she traveling, so okay, no brown people of note in the main story/ies.  However, to have her come as this Gran Liberator figure to the unsophisticated, unwashed masses kinda getting tired.  She could easily be amassing her army by forging alliances, rather than by incurring the gratitude of liberated slaves.

Ent!

It was just overkill. I wonder if they know they're making her a dislikeable character. I don't know if it's the actress, the character or the script/direction...

Yeah that was boring.  The most imminent thing to look forward to is the Greyjoy girl ridin for the janitor.  Can't believe they leave Theon woodless.

Arya's scene was good too. Dog sit dong and start to eat the men food yes.  He does real crack me up.

And I see they settin up the Warden of the North to be another disliked character.  Lots to look forward to next season but this was a shitty finale.

The season finale is always a little subdued in Game of Thrones - the climax always(?) happens in the second to last episode - I'm thinking back to Season 1 here when they chopped off Ned Stark's head - season two was forgettable to me - can't remember which episode the climax happened in.

And yeah, Theon's sister riding for him was a great scene. I don't exactly feel sorry for Theon, but Tamsay's treatment of him doesn't seem like 'justice' - it's just sadistic.

Racism In Game of Thrones’ Season 3 Finale?

Game of Thrones, HBO’s blockbuster show based on the A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy series by George R.R. Martin, wrapped up its third season on Sunday evening. But the closing scene of the episode may have left some of the reported five million viewers uncomfortable with the scene’s cultural insensitivity and potentially racist tone.
The scene shows heroine Daenerys Targaryen appearing before the thousands of Yunkai slaves she has just liberated. The fictional city of Yunkai’s main trade is slaves, and Martin’s books note that Yunkai slave traders have captured a broad spectrum of individuals throughout the years. As such, one would expect the Yunkai slaves to be diverse in appearance, notwithstanding the scorching sun.
Well, that wasn’t the case.
From the first wide-angle shot of the crowd of slaves, to the close-ups of the slaves as Daenerys walks among them, it is all a sea of ethnically brown and black individuals.

The question is… Why? Why did HBO make a conscious choice to portray the slaves almost exclusively as brown and black, particularly when the book does not describe them as such and, on the contrary, notes the slaves of Yunkai hail from all over and thus reflect a variety of ethnicities?
Making the scene even more culturally insensitive was the visual of these dark-skinned slaves raising in adoration a platinum blond, blue-eyed individual as their savior. The undertones of colonialism are evident.
In contrast, while apparently skewing the books in order to portray slaves as dark, the show has done the opposite for a key figure: Daario Naharis, a main character introduced this season, is understood by book readers to have dark skin. HBO instead cast a blond, blue-eyed Calvin-Klein-model type.

Well the problem was them scenes was filmed in Morocco, so thais where they get they extras. And Moroccan extras are going to be shades of brown.
I and all find it look off and wasn't exactly true to the source material but them's de breaks.

Racist? no
Insensitive? probably

EDIT: No way HBO made a CONSCIOUS decision to portray the slaves that way. They call for extras in Morocco. thais all
Also Daario Naharis is canonically very light skin. Meanwhile Daxos from last season was supposed to be white as milk, but in the show he was blacker than 5 past midnight.
