The 10 things I am looking forward in this season.
10. The Unsullied army
9. The Bolton Bastard
8. Jojen and Meera Reed
7. Brotherhood without bannersI(Thoros of Myr and Beric Dondarrion)
6. The Brave Companions(Vargo Hoat and his group)
5. Mance Rayder and his army
4. Daenerys getting the unsullied army
3. Jaime loosing his hand
2. The Attack by the Others on the fist of the first Men
1. The Red Wedding
Yeah, since it's being split into 2 seasons, then I'd expect the Red Wedding to be the finale. It happened about halfway (maybe a little more than halfway) through the book and I can't think of anything else that would be better to end the season with.
The only other possible event that could be a season ending episode is when Daenerys gets he Unsullied army, I can see both of those things along with Jaime getting his hand cut off all in the last episode of the season.
Wasn't the red wedding a bit closer to the end of the 3rd book? If I'm right, wouldn't it air next season since they are splitting this book in 2? It's been a while and I might very well be mistaken. Or was Robb the red wedding?
It was after the mid point of the book, but again remember that things are happening in the book almost simultaneously as other events, plus the show is not going exactly like the book, things have been change, but the plot has not.
I didn't have a big problem with what happened during the Red Wedding (besides hating that ***** who set them up, he never got his did he?), mainly because I wasn't a huge Rob fan in the books. But he has translated a lot better for me on the show and it will suck to see him go.
Disappointing is an understatement for AFFC... think I got 70 pages in and was still reading pointless Iron Island ceremony BS so I proceeded to read the book summary on Wikipedia.
