 Diaz, thanks for the update bro. The shot of the wildfire lighting up was excellent.

 By the way, did anyone notice that Neil F-ing Marshall directed it? I wonder if he's directing the last one too.

I picked up on Neil's name on the credits. They picked a good director for this one (not that any of the episodes have been shabby!). The face off between Bronn and the Hound was certainly something to see, especially since Bronn saves the Hound when he has his panic attack. I haven't read the books, but I was able to infer his fear/hatred of the fire from his reaction and his scarring. He certainly has grown in my estimations of him since showing up a basically a brute killer and now promising to help Sansa escape. Ad Tyrion is a star. I wonder how his father will view his accomplishments?

Blackwater done justice.  Wow great job to the cast and crew hands down a wonderfully well executed episode.

ok so they did use the chain?  I haven't seen this yet so I was worried about that, as it hasn't been introduced yet...if they did include that then I am happy.  With the changes they are making to Aryia (which are truly ridiculous) they need to keep the other stuff...

 I honestly haven't noticed any changes to Arya...the only BIG changes I've noticed are to Dany's storyline.  Seriously, she's stronger than the whiny mother of dragons bitch they've made her this season.  Even if Arya's storyline were changed as drastically as Dany's, you seriously think a CHAIN would make everything fine?......m'kaaaaaaaay.

But no, the chain was not even mentioned.  I mentioned it to my wife, but the battle was still truly f***ing epic and awesome.

 *BOOK SPOILER AHEAD*

 

For those of you wondering about the chain thing, Tyrion also had a ridiculously giant chain commissioned for a purpose that wasn't really revealed until the Blackwater Battle.  He pretty much let Stannis' fleet sail up into the city on the river.  He then had the chain pulled tight across the river trapping the fleet, and THEN they were pelted with wildfire.  Pretty awesome.  The battle on the screen was AWESOME and epic without it though.  Putting too much emphasis on the chain reminds me of Homer Simpson being outdone by an inanimate carbon rod.

Written by Mr Martin and directed by Neil Marshall!!! 

When I read that in the opening credits, I knew it was going to be epic!!  They did not hold back at all....I just could not believe after all he had done Tyrion was struck down by what looked to be one of his father's men.  I may be wrong, but it seemed he was a part of the invading third party.  I loved when the men were chanting "half a man"!!

Fatpantz the one who struck down Tyrion is one of the Kingsguard, the one Joffrey ordered to be there in the king's stead.  I do believe that he is controlled by the Queen, and she was paranoid about Joffrey dying because of Tyrion.

Kinda Spoiler...Kinda Spoiler:

 

They listed the names of new characters that'll be introduced in Season 3; and we finally get our Reeds and Blackfish.  A few other necessities as well of course; which I can't wait for.  They didn't name Ramsay...but with how he was mentioned this season, I wouldn't be worried about him not showing up.
