Game of Thrones Season 4 Recap – Episode 9: The Watchers on the Wall

Kit Harrington stars as Jon Snow in HBO's Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode 9 (entitled 'The Watchers on the Wall)

What did everyone else think of Episode 9 (entitled The Watchers on the Wall) ofHBO’s Game of Thrones Season 4? Personally, I was a bit crapped off with it 🙁

Okay, so having Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) finally meet up with Ygritte (Rose Leslie) was pretty cool, but, as for the rest of it, it kinda went like this:

  • Sword fight, sword fight, sword fight.
  • Wow! Look at the giant and it’s pet mammoth!
  • Sword fight.
  • Is this really Game of Thrones or have I accidentally changed the channel and caught the tail end of The Lord of the Rings?
  • Arguing – usually involving Jon Snow and people who are supposed to be more in charge than him
  • Don’t die Samwell (John Bradley)!
  • More bloody sword fighting… except this time it looks more like a scene from the History channel’s Vikings – which is pretty damn cool actually.
  • Woolly-bloody-mammoths – with it’s ARSE on fire! *best scene of the night!*
  • Ygritte! Awesome, it’s Ygritte
  • Oh. NO!

Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) and Ygritte (Rose Leslie) meet for hte last time in HBO's Game of Thrones Season 4, Episode 9 (entitled 'The Watchers on the Wall')

  • Jon Snow, you know nothing.” *bitter tears*
  • Release the hounds!
  • What, are Castle Black ACTUALLY winning this fight?
  • When are we gonna see something other than bloody sword fighting?
  • Oh, look, there’s that wormy guy who chickened out and hid in the kitchen with Gilly (Hannah Murray) – hope he gets strung up next week…
  • Cool! They killed a giant.
  • Phew! The episode is over!

What I really want to know though, considering we are only one episode away from he Season 4 finale, is when the fuck are we going to find out the fate of Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage)? Please don’t drag it out until Game of Thrones Season 5 HBO!
