The news of the red wedding has reached King's Landing and Tywin Lannister calls a meeting of the small council. Joffery rejoices at the news but no one supports his plan to present Sansa with Robb's head at his wedding to Margaery. Arya flees the Twins with Sandor Clegane as her protector but not before she sees what they've done to Robb. She exacts a modicum of revenge. Ygritte catches up with Jon Snow but he survives the encounter making it to Castle Black as do Sam and Gilly. Bran makes it through the wall and into the unknown lands. Jaime and Brienne arrive in King's Landing.At Yunkai, Daenerys awaits the reaction of the thousands of slaves who are now free. Written by garykmcd

Easilty the Worst Episode of the Entire Series Thus Far ...
14 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

... and a truly dismal finale to the season. If you've seen Red Wedding and haven't seen Mhysa yet do yourself a favor and just skip it to avoid the let down as you'll gain absolutely no new information, story lines aren't advanced in any way with this episode and the gritty parts of the series, the sex and violence, that have become a trade mark of what has been a unique and entertaining series to this point, are utterly gratuitous, pointless and without merit.

The most disappointing part of this episode might be the continuing irrelevance and diminishing significance of one of the best storyline and characters in the series, that of Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons. With each episode less time has been devoted to her and when she does appear, as in this episode, it seems to have no importance what so ever and her dialog is beginning to border on silly. Her appearance here seems to be little more than an after thought.

There seem to be a lot of fanboy types marking this episode up and giving it glowing reviews but don't believe them. Amongst the friends, family and co-workers which my wife and I talk about this show on a regular basis there's been universal disappointment with the episode especially as the season finale.

So much so that I can't help but wonder if HBO and the show's producers didn't inflict a mortal wound on the series with this disaster. We won't see another installment until 2014 and our own sentiment is reflected in the answer to the question we've asked of everyone we've talked with; what are you looking forward to next season and the answer to a person is, nothing.

This all seems very reminiscent of the progression of Battlestar Galactica, a terrible season 3 ending that left fans wanting, an extended period of time until the next season premiere in which people stopped caring and then the end.
