Although, the ending was a good cliff hanger I will admit.


Exactly all the running up and down stairs, flipping, whispering and ish they could have cut down...I was happy when dude got a hammer to the head though

There's no way they could have edited down the battle to 20 mins. This was a huge battle in the books and is pretty important. Would have been a big backlash if it was presented as a secondary issue.

I'm saying! 

Coulda cut that down to 15 minutes, cutting back and forth between what we really came for

That wasn't worth an hour, what about the consort, uhmm Tyrion's fate, Sansa/Arya where do we go from here

20 mins/out of 50 isn't a secondary issue. Thats still a lot of time.
I got bored in the middle of the battle.

I guess I can see such a threat to the wall being important

But that's not what I came for

20 mins isn't enough time to present the wildlings side, the crows side, the battle itself, and the deaths of the characters that had the quiet moments. The problem with the episode (and I do think it's the weakest of the episode 9 episodes of the series) is that they didn't do enough to build up characters like Ygritte, and the brothers at the wall so that people care what happens to them like they cared about the characters in Blackwater. Battles in this series usually fade to black but this is one battle Martin depicted as epic, in the sense of a LOTR type of battle and it needed to be presented as such in the show...

You don't build up this battle for 3 seasons and then rush it.

My big complaint is that the conclusion of the battle wasn't in this episode. The season finale is 66 minutes long but I'm still concerned that there might be too many big moments.

If they wanted to keep it so long then they should have given glimpses of what we came for :(

Still too long.
Things are going to get cut out, thats just the nature of book --->show adaptations. I could have lived without that event taking up that much time. Especially considering how little I/ and many 'show only' followers care about it.
Edit: or should I say, how much we care about other things in comparison.
