    My reaction to the final moments was: What? No, not Stone Cold's catchphrase, but rather shock at the reemergence of the dragons. At least the show is trying to stay true to the book (and I can pretend like I actually read that book, or any book.)

    The finale got us forgetting about Ned's death pretty quickly, which both a good and a bad thing. A good thing because Game of Thrones needed to establish that it could survive without Sean Bean because he isn't coming back, and they did. A bad thing because as epic as last week's episode was, they didn't drill it in our brains as to what a big deal it was by showing the aftermath of it as well as they could.

    The early problem of this show was differentiating all of these characters and this series from everything else on TV. Mission accomplished by the season finale. It was original, it was entertaining and now I'm hooked as a fan of GOT. Now we just have to wait a year for more episodes: great!
