Sam is also a powerful sorcerer, a wanna be wizard.  Oh wait, that's Willow Ufgood.

Continual rise in ratings.  Gotta love it! http://winteriscomin...er-series-high/
I wasn't thrilled with the change to Melisandre meeting up with the Brotherhood (and Arya) and 'stealing' Gendry either.  I didn't hate the scene(s) of course, just the change.  It does make me wonder if Gendry has a future role in the unpublished books that D&D know of from George.  Obviously they got rid of Edric Storm as the one Melisandre seeks, but it doesn't look like Gendry's story will follow Edric's in the books.

From a person that doesn't need huge action scenes filling every episode to find enjoyment I will say that I thought this week's (5) was one of the strongest of the series so far.  It didn't have all that much 'flash' but I felt all of the scenes were excellent.  Obviously no program is going to be filled every week with Daenerys-kicking-ass type scenes.  They've continued with a steady pace though, seeming to add major action sequences when needed (just as with the books being adapted).  This week we were witness to more of the "quiet emotions" from word; hate, vengeance, betrayal, love, fear, pain, etc., etc.  I can't say how I'd feel about certain conversations if I hadn't read the books.  I'd like to say that most of them are fairly understandable but I just don't know, whether they be foreboding, character changing or something else.  To me they were completely engrossing, wanting to hear every word even though I have a general idea of what is going to be said most of the time.  I do know being an incredibly huge fan that bias blinds, but I can still tell when something is being done poorly because I've experienced it.  Game of Thrones is not one of those things.

Another strong showing by all actors this week.  Maisie, Joe Dempsie (Gendry), Nikolaj and Richard Dormer (Beric) get a star sticker :P

I think I must give props to the casting team. Everyone fits the bill pretty much. IMO, Dany casting is the best,

Agreed.  Personal favs for best of the great casting to fit my book reading thoughts.:  Arya, Daenerys, Varys and Lord Commander Mormont.  Tyrion of course couldn't be cast any better.  Dinklage is just a lot better looking than my mind's eye had.

I feel like there really isn't a weak actor among any of the "main speaking cast."  I'm not a huge fan of Gillen's Littlefinger, but others like him.  I've written my peace on Sophie as she's doing better.  A couple of the more minor-mains like Ros and Shae are kinda meh, although they both appear to be doing better at times as well.  Then there are those that are so good they make the book character better, i.e. Jerome Flynn's Bronn.  Dempsie's Gendry is pretty good too.
