Best show on TV right now (though I haven't seen True Detective yet). Fixes all of the books horrendous pacing problems, and really hones in on what's good in the universe. Can't wait for season four.

Me to, just rewatched season 3 as the DVD has only been out few weeks in the UK and the good thing about season 4 is that we only have to wait 16 hours after it airs in the US which is extremely rare. I agree about the pace and i don't know about how it relates to the books as I haven't read them all. I have book 1 an 2 but only read ten pages then forget about it.

I read them all. Book one is the best, mostly because it's the best laid out and paced. After that Martin just got way too divergent, going full on Tolkien at times. The show really focuses in on what matters. You really won't miss much but the whole zillion years of history and characters that don't really matter if you don't read the books.

Agreed completely with LFV in terms of the books' pacing. I also don't remember a whole lot of what actually happened in the fourth or fifth books, they were pretty meandering.

Love the show, especially seasons 1 and 3.

I agree season 2 was quiet poor apart from the big battle at the end.

One thing I'm unclear on and haven't found an answer to: is the end of this season also the end of the SERIES?

Have friends who read the books and they've been saying that this season is the end of the entire series. I have seen no confirmation of that, so I'm totally confused. I don't know if they're thinking this because the series has progressed past the books, or what.

With only 3 episodes left, I don't see how they tie up everything without making it suck (or "suck even more" if you're a hardcore fan, who all apparently hate this season). If it IS the end of the series, then....uh-oh...I'm suddenly getting a "Series Finale of LOST" vibe.

A wrestling recapper's report of Snow/Bolton from the main event of the Battle of the Bastards PPV.


----------------------------------------------------
Daenarys & Dragons vs Slavers was the curtain jerker?!!? Nice run-in from the Dothraki and Second Sons, though. Looks like the Sons of the Harpy stable has been dissolved.

Main event recap:
Earlier in the show, they cut an in-ring promo. Snow channeled Perry Saturn in August 1998: gave the Karstark underlings and other members of Ramsay's Flock a chance to do a babyface turn, but they scoffed at it.

Ramsay comes out, before the bell, with Rickon as his valet. Rickon gets jobbed away cleanly and is removed from the roster. Snow is pissed and attacks as the bell rings. We get a full-on 6,000 vs 2,562 (can't forget those 62 from the Bear Islands) Grand Finale WARGAMES Match of Survival. Snow apparently lost the coin-flip and is the #1 person in the ring.

Wun Wun (the Giant) draws #2 and Big Red the Wildling (whatever the hell his name is) sneaks in as well. Karstark draws #2 for the heels and gets a quick face-off with Snow and Big Red. . Countless face and heel jobbers draw the next several thousand. Ser Davos comes in at roughly #1,509.

Ramsay has the last number for his team, but doesn't enter and get his entire stable to surround the ring and do a mass beat-down. The heels look to go over until the Riders of Rohan, errrr... Knights of the Vail run-in for the surprise save.

Is boils down to Wun Wun, Big Red and Jon Snow vs Ramsay... but Ramsay runs backstage. The faces follow, as Wun Wun tears apart the set. Ramsay gets in a cheap shot and takes out Wun Wun. Snow counters Ramsay's offense, then beats Ramsay with closed fists. The referees all step aside and let it happen, since this is the MATCH BEYOND; no DQ and closed fists are perfectly legal.

Ramsay does a hellacious stretcher and blade job. Things appear to end... but wait, we get a BONUS match. As part of the stipulations for the match, Sansa Stark gets five minutes alone in the ring with Ramsay! Yet Sansa mixes it up and declares it a Kennel-in-a-Cell cage match! Ramsay runs some smack, but does a clean job and is on this way out of the promotion.

Fans go bananas (tm, Gorilla Monsoon) as the credits roll. Sometimes it's nice to see the faces go over, cleanly. Great way to end this feud. Now, Jon Snow can be elevated to the Main Event scene and mix it up with Jaime, Daernys, Tyrion and the rest. Hopefully before they pull the trigger on the Army of the Dead InVasion angle.

*****1/2.
Winner and NEWWWWWWW Northern States Heritage Champion: Jon Snow.
