    Oberyn's arrogance was his downfall, so determined to get everything he wanted when he was elated by his seeming success that he didn't just take his revenge quickly. It was an incredibly dramatic but horrifyingly violent ending that he could so easily have avoided if he'd just taken the win.

    I find Sam really quite irritating and I've never worked out why.

    Agree about Oberyn. It felt like he was playing to the crowd, wanting them to know exactly why he wanted to kill the Mountain and for them to feel guilty for the death of his sister. He should have just ended it. I was surprised he only lasted a couple of episodes, because I thought he was around for most of the season, but we didn't see much of him at all.

    I don't mind Sam, he's that dull best friend to the hero type. He can't outshine Jon, but he has to bring something to the table. He's brave when needs be, but not showy and he's clever in his own way. Not one of my favourites, but I don't dislike him.

    Interesting article from the BBC about how much women speak on the show.

    To be fair women have 4 out of the top 7 spots for # of lines. Also no graph for women being bad ass? Cuz that would probably be a pretty high ratio wise.
