And who are you, the proud lord said,

I have been fairly carefull to not provide Spoilers, but just in case, if you havent yet caught up on Game of Thrones do so then come back!

 

 

As part of my “creating a schedule” I set Saturdays as my Book/Film/TV series, considering the massive impact it has had this week it would be crazy to not talk about Game of Thrones Season 3 Episode 9 “The Rains of Castamere”.

One of the most satisfying thing about Game of Thrones is it is the first show since the days of Lost and 24 that have become water cooler conversations not to be based on the “Talent” of a Nation or the warbling of a Pop wanabe.

I’ve read the books, so I knew what was coming. It’s even safe to say that I was looking forward to seeing the reaction from those who had never read the series. Much like the Ned Storyline in Season One I got almost as much enjoyment from the knowledge of things to come as I did from the show itself.

I thought the main event was brilliant; the subtle hints that it was coming, I think made Catelyn’s realisation echo that of the uninitiated. One of the small touches I especially liked was the complete lack of outro music, which had been “Rains of Castamere” for the weeks previous.

I am a little surprised that it wasn’t the final episode and I’m somewhat confused as to which other finale moment we could be treated to in episode 10, although thinking back the battle of the Blackwater was actually the penultimate episode last season as well.

It also did a fantastic job of making you forget Episode 8, in case you’re wondering check out around 33mins, adds an additional importance to the Red Wedding.

I can’t wait to see what the final episode is, there are so many great moments to come, not as many individual moments stand out for me as Ned’s demise and the Red Wedding, but for those of you yet to read the books or just content to watch it unfold as the TV show I guarantee you this won’t be the last water cooler moment inspired by this show!
