Hello Game Of Thrones fans! “The Children” is my favourite season finale of my favourite television show on air. I haven’t been recapping any episodes this season but I wanted to share some general thoughts on the finale. This write-up will be more of a conversation starter than a complete breakdown on everything that happened in this super sized episode. I’ll try to limit my thoughts to the show itself without direct comparisons to the books. If you’re looking for great reviews of each episode without any book spoilers, I’d recommend you also check out and follow The Triple Option blog. If you like book comparisons and full recaps, be sure to check out Cinematic Corner.
Everything after the break will contain spoiler filled thoughts for Game Of Thrones Season 4, Episode 10.
HBO’s Game Of Thrones: King Joffrey’s Top Ten Worst Moments
Spoilers Ahead for HBO’s Game Of Thrones, including Season Four’s “The Lion and The Rose”.
Game Of Thrones fans have taken their love of hating King Joffrey to another level. It’s become an amusing phenomenon.
The hate-fest started soon after the second episode when gifs and videos of Tyrion face-slapping Joffrey popped up on the internet. More recently in HBO’s promotion of Season Four, #RoastJoffrey was billed as the world’s first social media comedy roast of the most hated character on television. Take a look at the compilation video below of the best slaps and funniest tweets including “Joffrey is actually High Valyrian for douchebag.”
To top it all off, Sky TV in New Zealand created a fun campaign for fans to topple a seven meter tall statue of Joffrey. When fans tweeted using #bringdowntheking, a rope around the King’s neck gradually lowered the statue until it fell over.
HBO’s Game Of Thrones: House Stark’s Ten Biggest Mistakes
Spoiler Alert: This article discusses major plot points in HBO’s Game Of Thrones, Season One to Three.
The long grueling wait in between seasons offer fans plenty of time to reflect upon the intricate plotting and fascinating characters that populate HBO’s Game Of Thrones. Of the major houses vying for the Iron Throne, many fans championed House Stark Of Winterfell above all by virtue of the Stark’s deeply rooted values of honor, love, family and loyalty.
An ongoing theme of Game Of Thrones is how good, well-meaning leaders make poor choices as best exemplified by House Stark. Years of bad decision-making culminated in their tragic, shocking demise at the end of Season 3. What makes the Stark’s downfall compelling is that as a viewer, we always understand the context of why characters make the decisions that they do. Some decisions are only mistakes in hindsight, others are terribly misguided, a few are better described as a turning point than as a mistake, while many set off a chain reaction of unforeseeable events.
After last episode’s bombshell, fans expressed their outrage, heartfelt sorrow and disbelief. The collective gasp of shock from living rooms around the world roared into a frenzy on Twitter and other social media sites. The aftershock even reverberated across TV talk shows and newspaper headlines as if what happened was like a real life event. A week later, millions of viewers tuned in (or downloaded) to watch a confident, well-written season finale that began with its darkest hour and ended with a rare moment of inspiration.

Game Of Thrones: Season 3 Episode 3 “Walk Of Punishment” Review – Hand Of The Kingslayer! (Note: This review is suitable for fans that only follow the TV show; no books spoilers.)
With the narrative stretching out further across the continents, down the family tree, interweaving strands of history with the present day, it’s no small feat how the weight of its ambition doesn’t collapse upon itself. A sign of intricate storytelling is how dangling threads start to fold back in, forming the infrastructure from which more offshoots can thrive.
There are a couple of developments in Walk Of Punishment that are fine examples of plot points planted long ago that are beginning to take shape. The Hound is on Arya’s nightly death wish list because he slaughtered her friend Mycah, the butcher’s boy she was sword-fighting with back in Season 1, Episode 2.
