His death may seem too soon,given that this is only the second episode of the season, but it sets off a whole chain of events that spells the downfall of the Lannisters. I won't say anything too spoilery but trust me when I tell you that you haven't seen anything yet, folks.
The reaction videos have been fun to watch and for those who are wondering why the demise of a fictional character(especially a young one) is bringing such joy to the masses, allow me to explain.
Such suffering is reflective of the "anyone can die at any time" element of the source material and it does make for suspenseful story telling but for viewers who haven't read the books, this can be wearying on the resolve to keep on with the show. Also, trust me; the little bastard had it coming. So let us have our vicious victory dance for now yet keep an eye on poor Tyrion,who will be most sorely tested(and most unfairly, I might add) due to the gruesome aftermath of this family affair:
Joan is also having a rough time in being taken seriously but her arsenal is a bit more extensive there. A strong feeling of transition pervades over the episode and even though we're only getting part of the series finale(the first seven episodes are airing now,with the remainder to be shown in 2015), this set-up holds a lot of promise for a well thought out conclusion and I for one look forward to more:
Have to say that Ward being a bad guy is a nice change-up for the character and he is a formidable threat,since he has plenty of inside knowledge from his time with Coulson and the gang that is aiding the cause of Hydra all too well.
Plus, Garrett is quite the entertaining mastermind there and seeing him and Ward work their wicked mojo on their unsuspecting allies is awesome to watch(in a bad way,of course):
Skye would not be the first gal in the Whedonverse to have an evil boyfriend and if this goes along those lines, things will not go well for the course of true love there(not to mention Melinda May putting her two cents of kickass into that discussion!):
THE AMAZING RACE: ALL STARS: So far, the competition has been friendly but that appears to not be lasting as a couple of teams get down and dirty with their tactics and why am I not surprised at Brendon and Rachel being all involved in this?:
