Game of Thrones ep 9  
So I've read all the books, and I think the show is doing a fantastic job in bringing the books to life. And, of course, having read the books, I know all that's coming, so no shockers for me.

With that said ... I was really surprised that, despite knowing what happened to Ned, I still cried when he was beheaded. It was just GUH!

This show. SO. FREAKING. EPIC!

It was such a great episode. I've just started reading the book so I was clueless when the final scene came. I kept thinking that the new king would grant Ned pardon and yet...
It was extremely touching and well-made and I cannot wait until next week.

Ohhh, if they end the finale on what I think they will, prepare to be O!M!G! I can NOT wait to see it play out.

Aren't you just loving seeing the reactions of all the people who haven' read the book? As a reader it's great to see it realized, but most of us didn't have other people to scream with at that point in the book. We've all been there folks, hang on shit just got ever realer.

It's awesome; and when spoilers come up for stuff like the red wedding, people are just gobsmacked. It's AWESOME!

They don't even know how real shit is gonna get!

I just got into the fandom last week - I marathoned all the episodes within a 24 hour period lol.

It shocked me when he was beheaded!! One of the things I really love about the show is that nothing and nobody is sacred - you literally have no idea what the characters fates will be!

That's very true; George R.R. Martin is very much of the "EVERYBODY DIES!" mentality, LOL!

I know what you mean.
And I like the fact that Sandor helped Ned to stand when someone threw him a rock.
The whole scene was just perfect. So well filmed & acted!!! I hope they'll get looootttsss of emmys.

I'm hoping that GoT sweeps. It certainly deserves it more than some other HBO shows that I will not name. They are doing such a fabulous job!

Yes! I've lost my love for DW but I found a new main fandom :D

I'm a few fandoms away from DW, but it's in the last few weeks that I completely stepped away. I didn't even watch the last two episodes. Ah well, Matt Smith, it's not you. It's Moffat.

I had a vague idea it was coming, but then even after they actually told it was happening, once it happened I still did the whole massive-gasp-hands-over-mouth-eyes-bugging-OMGWTF thing. That's how awesome this show is.

Yeah, I mean, I knew it was coming, but I still cried. Wah!

Seriously, this show. It's so amazing and I'm a little bummed that the ten episodes are (almost) over already *sigh*

I'm HEARTBROKEN. I LOVED NED and thought he'd be around till the very end. I love that they shocked me, but I hate that he's gone. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! He has HONOR, dammit! I HATE THAT FAKE KING!!! :(

I just did a marathon of GoT. Didn't read the book. Not sure if I should now since I would know the outcome. I was shocked and so disappointed about Ned and kept thinking it was a fake out. It made hate Joffrey more.

Will Stannis even play a role later?

My favorite character is Tyrion. I just love the actor who played him. That story about his wife, so sad.

And this whole incest and Lannisters are so cool about it, like no big deal. You think something would have been wrong in the gene pool.

This whole dragon with Daenarys...wow just wow
