Haha, watched it last night. Never read the books but I can see how things are shaping up.

Meant to say the other week when we were talking about Hamlet; Stephen Dillane who plays Stannis Baratheon was Horatio (who you knew well) way back in 1990.

Well, that leaves the wildlings between two hammers and an anvil.

Bit overboard all that. 6.5 regular characters?

Bloody nuts!!

Janso posted a spoiler in that last post, I have changed its colour so that those who do not want to see it will not.

Highlight the text in his post to see it.

Brilliant series finale, didn't see "that" coming. Trying not to give too much away, & only highlight over the next sentence if you've seen episode 10:

but does anyone think that the witch woman (who made a timely return to castle black) can perform some "next level" healing?

Also, what's the young paralysed lad doing? Is he still hiding in that tree?

No.

Yes, he's still in the tree.

Good question. They were a major part of the plots initially, particularly JS's. Then they pretty much vanished into the background, seemed a bit stupid to me.
They were killed. They didn't vanish lol.

Although I think Arya's was shooed away by her and Ghost is still alive IIRC?

Only Rob's and Sansa's were killed.

Ghost was there, protecting Sam in episode 8.

They are a major part of the books but sidelined in the TV series.

I don't know how prevelant they are in the books but I think the.wolves caused the CGI bods some problems. The armies and especially the dragons are really well done but I think the wolves pelts gave them some problems as even the live action wolves have to be made bigger and just don't come up to muster sometimes.

The dragons are created by a dedicated team of upto 30 CGI specialists. Very impressive.

Arya's Wolf (Nymeria) is running wild in the river lands where she has a pack of normal wolves doing her bidding. I wonder if this will feature in the books at a later date at all.

Ghost is still alive, in the book he isn't involved in the scene when the end of ep 10 happens... I wonder what will happen in the next book...

Interestingly, the actress that played Sansa adapted the Dog who played Lady, her Direwolf...

On a related note, the rumour is that the next book "The winds of winter" will be out before the next series is broadcast, Which is good in a way, as this series reaches the end of the books as currently published...
