The Pointy End

Yes, tonight is the episode I scripted for GAME OF THRONES -- episode eight, "The Pointy End."

(The first episode to have a title, FWIW. I argued strongly in favor of episode titles, rather than just numbers).

No, I haven't seen it yet. I'll be seeing it for the first time tonight, same as you folks.

Many of you will want to comment afterward, I know. Again, the best place for that discussion is not here. Head over to Winter Is Coming, to Westeros, to Tower of the Hand, to Television Without Pity, to the HBO boards.

In a series like this, scenes sometimes get moved from episode to episode, so not everything you'll see tonight will be mine(except in the sense that is all based on my books, of course). F'rinstance, the bit in the previews, with Tyrion and Bronn in the Mountains of the Moon, that was originally meant to be in episode seven, and was moved into "The Pointy End" during editing. So that scene, and the encounter with the clansmen, was written by David and Dan.

Kind of fitting that "The Pointy End" airs even as I am working on my season two script, "Blackwater." A much tougher assignment, by the way. All those damned boats...

Tywin Lannister...
and in the same way, could be possible that the first scene in episode 7 (you know, Tywin and the poor deer) It was your? Because Tywin is so F great in this one...

Oh, but you're great with boats!
Case in point: Fevre Dream, my favorite vampire story.

Very well done episode!

All those damned boats, indeed; I wish I didn't have to wait a year to see it!

Well done
My weekly Game of Thrones gathering just dispersed to their homes as we await episode 9. Clearly the master's pen took command of that episode. I'll save the rest of my comments to Winter-is-Coming. As has been the case I think each week, this is now my favorite episode.... until perhaps next week.

I do miss the Tywin manipulations of the tribesman from the book though. Other than that, amazing stuff!

Guys, c'mon.

I mean, thanks for the nice words and all (most of you)... but I just said, "this is not the place to discuss the show," and here come all these comments discussing the show, asking questions, etc.

No, sorry, I am not going to comment here about the episode. I'll save my commentary for the eventual DVD and BlueRay.

Please take your thoughts to Winter Is Coming, Westeros, or one of the other sites with forums for such discussions. I'm closing comments on this post, sorry.
