Beyond the Wall: This Week on Game of Thrones (S3 Episode 4 / April 21, 2013)

NOTE: Join us every MONDAY as we review the latest episode...

EPISODE 4: And Now His Watch is Ended

THE PLOT : The long summer is at an end, winter truly is coming and with it the cold winds of war as five self proclaimed Kings claim dominance over Westeros, but there can be only one winner when you play the game of thrones.

THE LOWDOWN: (The following column contains MAJOR SPOILERS, so I don't recommend reading this if you haven't watched this episode). Jaimes certainly seen better days. Having your hand cut off is bad enough, I wouldnt want the stinking dead thing hanging under my nose. The show doesnt let us see how rich the relationship between Jamie and Brienne got before this point, but she calls him out on the help and you can tell she feels for him. I loved how she put him in his place over loss. We get a short clip of Bran dreaming about his momwho pushes him out of a tree. Talk about tough love. I also very much enjoyed Tywins condescending talk with Cercei. Her plotting knows no bounds and you can tell shes starting to feel desperate. Watch out Tyrells.

As the title of tonights episode implies, its not a very good time for the Nights Watch. I hated that little weasel that stabs Mormont from the first time I laid eyes on him when Jon and Tyrion were first headed to the wall. Jon should have let Ghost rip his throat out. All hell breaks loose in Crasters camp. Ill admit, I dont feel for Craster one bit, as far as Im concerned he got off a little too easy. Tonight was the first time I actually felt for Theon, as he breaks down and we genuinely see that he regrets turning on the Starks, sure its a little late, but its nice to see him admit he was wrong. Poor bastard cant seem to catch a break. Speaking of emotions, that was the biggest smile Ive seen on Sansas face in nearly two seasons. Shes probably gotten the shaft more than anyone. It was nice to see her happy for a change.

I enjoy the friendship Varys and Tyrion share. There isnt one hundred percent trust between them, its fragile ground, but thats what makes it so fun. The story of Varys manhood was interesting, as is his thesis on revengecue the sorcerer. Well played. Now on to Varys and Granny Tyrell, who continues to steal the showI just cant get enough of her wisecracks. I genuinely loved her shout out to how awesome the Starks words are. Winter is Coming does have a sweet ring to it. The leader of the Brotherhood, Baric Dondarrion has an interesting exchange with the Hound, promising a ridiculously cool battle to come. Sad thing is, Id hate to see the Hound die. Theres honor in him, hes just always been on the wrong side.

GAME OF THRONES SEASON 3's fourth episode is a full can of badass with lots of WTF and OMG moments to have you falling out of your damn seat. And they saved the best for last. Daenarys shines tonight like the true goddess of death and destruction she is. The look she gives that jackass when he insults her yet again after giving her the whip was priceless. The fact that she understood him the entire time is just too epic for words. I couldnt remember how it all went down in the book, but I knew it would end badly for him because shed never give away a dragon. What a gorgeously impressive scene. The unsullied army looked phenomenal as do the dragons. Mad props to the effects team. Truly. And that final bit (see final photo) is a sight to behold in itself. Tonight they raised the bar. Tonight, we got a taste of blockbuster calibre television. The stuff of legend. Well f*cking done HBO.

SEX/NUDITY: Varys and Roz talk about Podricks legendary spear, but thats about it.

VIOLENCE: Daenerys and her army of unsullied and dragons lay waste to a city. And Crater has a hell of a night with the Nights Watch.

SHARPEST QUIP: Tonight isnt about being clever, its heartfelt as Theon breaks down about his sins against the Stark family. Theon: I paid the iron price for Winterfell. My real father lost his head in Kings Landing. There may be hope for you yet, Theon.

MOST EPIC SCENE: The second you see Daenerys until the credits roll. I watched it three times. One right after the other.

FINAL VERDICT :

TELL US WHAT YOU THOUGHT OF THIS EPISODE BELOW!

Extra Tidbit: Its time to see Jon Snow get his time in the spotlight.

I've been waiting so long for Daenerys to come out of her shell and take charge. This is exactly why she's destined to sit on the iron throne. The would-be kings have no idea what's coming.

Awesome, awesome, awesome. But as much as I loved Daenerys, I agree that Granny Tyrell steals the show every time she's on screen. That woman is hilarious. A special what up to Varys too, he was on fire tonight.

I'm loving everything I'm seeing thus far, even though we're getting small doses of key character much too often (Arya for one). It's going to be interesting to see how they handle melding different books together as after this season, we'll be into books four and five due to keeping everyone involved throughout. I hope this doesn't cause too many problems. For now though, this show couldn't be any better.

Amazing Ep.

What an acting job throughout by Emilia Clarke. She started out as this scared teenage bride getting plowed by Conan the Barbarian and now she's a kickass righteous dragon queen who's laying waste to everyone who tries to fuck her over. Immense!

What a turn of events for some of these characters. I feel for Jamie Lannister, Theon and even the Hound. How the hell did that happen? What an amazing show to spin our emotions like that. Definitely one of the best shows on television.

Talk about a show that knows how to invoke emotion into it's audience. Plots have to build, so some stuff will always feel like filler, but damn if it doesn't come together magically when something dramatic does happen. I agree, this is legendary TV in the making. And the entire Daenerys scene was definitely epic.

I couldn't wait for this column today...

That episode last night was so epic, and I literally stood up and clapped when Daenerys Targaryen wreaked havoc like she did. Also I have to agree on the whole Theon thing. I never thought I'd feel sorry for him, but sheesh he just deserved to get snuffed out, not to have all that happen...

GREAT EPISODE!!!

Me and my husband were yelling at the TV. It was awesome. Haven't been that emotionally involved in a show in a long time.

I was thinking that too, sacking those villages might not be such a bad idea after all.

Finally Daenerys is getting her due. It's been a long wait, but it looks like it's been worth it.
