Very cool ending and season. True to the books. Cool that some of Book 2 was thrown in as well toward the end.
Got to see Biter, (I think) Rorge, Hot Pie, and Gendry. They probably have not cast Jaqen H'ghar yet.

Edit:
Watched that scene again and think Jaqen was the guy with long hair (but was not half red, half white like the book) and Rorge was the one with the hood.

Clothes all burned off, but her hair still there? I'm guessing they stay then... The Dragons were pretty nice too.

only thing I'm afraid of with this series(I have not read the books yet) is books 3, 4, and 5 all were about 5 years apart and we have 2 more coming after that.

Well, at that rate, the series will not be complete for what seems to be at least 7-10 years which will make the TV show have a lot of lag time assuming they continue it till the end.

But maybe the next two books will come out faster. I have no clue since I have not followed it until the show came out. But I just got the first book and started it last night.

Great series, loved this last episode.

We'd already seen Gendry when Ned went to meet him.

The ending was nicely done. I really liked Jon Snow's ending as well.

That scene with Maester Pycelle was weird though, I didn't get it.

I'm kind of hoping that the success of the show gets him to wrap up the books a bit faster... I'm probably delusional though lol.

I have been thinking along those lines also. Maybe it will FORCE GRRM to finish book six by 2016, and seven by 2017?

That was a change from the book, (ep10 spoiler only)
her hair was supposed to be burned as well.

Yeah.
I don't remember that from the book.
Anyone know why it was in there?

Seems they wanted to show that he puts on a facade of a tired old man but is actually in pretty good shape and sharp as ever. For what reason, I don't know.

Worst part... we're going to have to wait awhile for more :(.

EDIT:

I had a feeling the dragons would hatch when the eggs were burnt. It was foreshadowed a few episodes ago and with all the talk of the "dragons being dead" and there being some eggs available... screams dragons!

Yeah,
I've been expecting dragons for some time. All her talk about "I'm a Dragon," and "Fire can't kill a Dragon," along with her having the eggs to begin with...all lead me to believe we'd be seeing them sooner or later. I was kind of disappointed in the pyre scene. I had expected to see at least some of the process...instead of just cutting to the after scene. <shrug>

I absolutely loved the finale. It actually caused some tears, even though I've already read the books and knew what was coming. (the episode before did, as well). Very happy with the way they included the most important scenes. So excited for next season! (and the next book :)

I'm expecting them to start making the seasons longer or making 2 seasons one book. That way GRRM can get his ass to finishing the series before the TV series catches up. I enjoyed the season and besides a few minor changes was happy to see them stick as close to the books as they did.

Book spoiler below...sorry I assumed spoilers were book implied since people openly discuss things including the books without tags.

He basically winds up running the kingdoms through King Tommen later on and isn't the senile and feeble old man he portrays

can you please label it as a book spoiler? Most of the spoilers today are about this episode. We really need a separate thread for the book. Too many are just putting all sorts of spoilers in this thread.

Yeah, even in spoiler tags, that was obnoxious without a book spoiler warning. I'm thinking about starting a "Song of Ice and Fire" thread closer to the release of A Dance with Dragons that could also serve as the "book spoiler" version of the TV thread for next season. Then all book spoilers could be banned from the TV thread. Anyone else support this?
