Game of Thrones: What Did You Think?
What Did You Think of The Pointy End episode?

The HBO Series Game of Thrones has spurred a great deal of talk – and controversy – among the fan community. Supporters love its high production values, its respect for the source material and its complex plotting. Detractors – mostly those who haven’t read the books – decry its unduly bleak tone and the Byzantine plot threads which take a lot to follow. The series has already been renewed for a second season, and author George R.R. Martin himself penned this week’s episode, in anticipation of the last two episodes of initial run.
At Mania, we’re pretty divided on the overall quality, but we want to hear what you think. Did the last episode grab you? Does Martin prove as adept a screenwriter as he is a novelist? Are the Lannisters in trouble, or are they about to nail the Starks’ coffin shut? (No spoilers, fans of the novel.)
Sound off below and let us know if you’re into the Game!
