Season 4: Episode 10: The Children

Episode 9: Review
It's been a while since we've had an episode dedicated to a whole battle or just one story itself. Season 2 episode 9, was the last episode like this with the battle of the blackwater. In  this battle however there weren't any games to play. It was kill or be killed!!

I never liked Alliser Thorne much, but in this episode, even though he still hates Jon Snow, I saw a side to him I liked. On the battle field, he could hold his own, he is able to inspire the men he commands and is pretty damn good with a sword too!! And then we have Janos Slynt! His cowardly reaction didn't surprise me at all. Even Sam is braver than that guy.

Luckily or Unluckily for Jon,Ygritte is killed by the little boy who escaped a northern village a few weeks back. Would she really have put that arrow through his heart? I don't think she would. I would love to have seen more of the fight in the tunnel between the six members of  the nights watch and the huge giant!!

I must say personally I was a little dissapointed with this episode! The CGI for the Giants and Mammoths was unreal though!

Episode 10: The Children

Producers are promising that this will be the best episode yet! Then again they are always say that at the end of a series, don't they? I for one am still trying to decide if episode 8 was the best or worst ever! I'm still grieving for Oberyn!

Producers are promising a 66 minute episode that is going to end a few plot lines with a bang!! With all the hype in Kings Landing with Tyrions trial and the battle at the wall, this episodes trailer reminds us about those people we may have forgotten about, like Arya and the Hound, Sansa and Daenerys?! This episode shows us a bit of everything and a lot of nothing! Usually we can kind of know what to expect from them but this week the producers are giving nothing away!!

The official synopsis for this episodes is: 
"An unexpected arrival north of the Wall changes circumstances. Dany is forced to face harsh realities. Bran learns more of his destiny. Tyrion sees the truth of his situation."
What new troubles will Dany face? Will Bran finally learn to fly? Will Tyrion get out of this alive? What's next for Arya and the Hound. One thing is for sure that nobody can be certain, especially since this season as deviated away from the books more than previous seasons. Anything could and more than likely will happen. It's the last episode for another 9 or 10 months so don't miss it and enjoy every last second of it.

Who know's maybe we will be lucky enough to have book 6 by the time the next season comes? No?

Game of Thrones airs on HBO at 9pm on Sunday 15th June and on Sky Atlantic on Monday 16th of June.
