Storyline

Theon Greyjoy is sent by Ramsey to Moat Cailin to convince an ironborn garrison to surrender, promising that they will return to their land. The Wildlings slaughter Mole's Town but Ygritte spares Gilly and her baby. When Sam hears the news in Castle Black, he becomes worried with Gilly, but his friends comfort. A boy gives a scroll to Barristan with the pardon of Jorah signed by Robert Baratheon and Daenerys expels him from the city. Littlefinger is explaining the death of his wife Lysa to a court and Sansa is asked to testify as a witness, and she lies to protect him. Oberyn fights against the Mountain and wants him to confess that he raped and killed his sister Elia Martell. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Another epic episode and a great set-up for the last two episodes

The Mountain and the Viper is another classic episode for Game of Thrones. Not only is it as interesting as I thought, but it advances the story lines left in the previous episode including the story-arc for Tyrion if he can either be spared or sentenced to death and the ending is really suspenseful.

The performances are still compelling, the storyline/script is well-written, the music score is great and suits the combat sequence really well, the writing is superb, the characters are still believable, the pacing, once again, never drags, the directing and editing is even sharper, and the scenery and sets is really solid. Also, the combat sequence is well-choreographed. So, overall, another epic episode and great set-up for the last two episodes. :)
