Not sure if anyone caught this large spoiler at the end of S4Ep4 or not:

Not sure how it spoils too much. He already looked distinctly different and that should have been a clue.

If GRRM would watch spend his time eating pizza and hot dogs and not finish his story HBO will.

Best episode of the season, IMO.  Even with some of the additional book deviation they're doing.

Last two episodes were kinda meh and now I know why. Tyrion-deficiency.

It did spice things up a bit, especially his monologue at the end.

At this point, I vote for GRRM to be barred from finishing the series and just let the HBO guys handle it.

The part of who is going to be on the court side of the trial by combat shouldn't change from the books.

So, nobody here was excited about last night's episode eh? I thought it was one of the best of the season.

The Mountain totally has to die right? He's been replaced more times than people say Daario Naharis' name to remind you that Daario Naharis been replaced and this Adrian Brody is the new one.

They should replace him with Sandor sans makeup for one scene just to see if anyone notices.

I mean, they've been slowly toning down his make-up each season to the point where two seasons from now it'll all be gone and turns out he's a Targaryen.

Is there any character introduced this season that is more dope than Oberyn?

Now that Bronn's cashed out, Oberyn's stepping up.

I didn't like that guy playing the mountain, he looks too young, he's supposed to be older that Sandor.

 

Beyond that another good episode.

 

Based on nothing more than George Double-R saying the ending would be bitter-sweet, I don't think things will play out very well for Tyrion when all is said and done.

"I let each man cut me once, before I kill him. Count the cuts and you will know how many Strong Belwas has slain."

 

Bad. Ass.

I just finished up re-reading book 3 and skipping out on having Strong Belwas was a mistake.  The battle with the Mereen champion when it's him vs Strong Belwas is much better than the show version with Daario.    Plus, there's a very important item involving him in the later books that I'd be curious to see how HBO handles it without him.

 

Seeing what happens in the end of book 3 and with three episodes to go, I'm wondering what will get done and what will end up either being skipped or passed to S5.

That event will be fine with a substitute, as have most other events in the show with substitutes.

It was alright as was, though comparing it to the same situation with Strong Belwas, IMO, it was better with him.

 

In other news, it looks like a good chunk of Season 5 will involve Dorne:
