There’s a promo up for next week’s finale of season 3’s GAME OF THRONES. The title of the episode is Mhysa. In Old Valeryan it means Mother. Just a word on episode nine. I’m so sad at losing Robb (Richard Madden). I’ve loved both the character and the actor since the beginning and this is like losing Sean Bean all over again. The one thing I have to say is that Richard Madden has made a fan out of me. I think he has a great future ahead of him. I’m wishing nothing but the best and hope to see him again soon, though I’ll miss him as Robb. And what can be said about Michelle Fairley? She’s a great lady and without a doubt one of the main reasons I think Richard was so good. Having her to bounce off of each week. I’m so thrilled to have gotten to know these two wonderful actors. Kudos to them for a great run.
I’ve uploaded the soundtrack from season two of GAME OF THONES to the gallery. These files can be played in your default media player. Each file with the exception of three are in MP3 format. The final three files are the front and back cover scans and a digital booklet that can be read through Adobe Acrobat available for download here or your default reader program. Some really moving pieces on this one. My favourite I’d have to say is The Rains of Castomere performed by The National and sung by actor Jerome Flynn who plays Bronn, Tyrion’s (Peter Dinklage) protector. This piece was featured at the end of season two episode nine Blackwater. I’m embedding it here for your pleasure.

THE RAINS OF CASTOMERE
Nikolaj has finally been acknowledged for the work he’s putting in as Jaime Lannister on GAME OF THRONES. Nominations came out for the Critic’s Choice TV Awards. Here is who he is up against in the Best Supporting Actor field. We wish Nikolaj congratulations and good luck.
BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A DRAMA SERIES
• Jonathan Banks (Breaking Bad) – AMC
• Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game of Thrones) – HBO
• Michael Cudlitz (Southland) – TNT
• Noah Emmerich (The Americans) – FX
• Walton Goggins (Justified) – FX
• Corey Stoll (House of Cards) – Netflix
Personally, there really isn’t anyone in the field that is as good as Nikolaj. My own opinion of course. Fellow GAME OF THRONES stars Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) was also nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category, as well as Dame Diana Rigg DBE who was nominated in the Best Guest Performer in a Drama Series category for her role as Olenna Tyrell. Congratulations Emilia and Ms. Rigg. GAME OF THRONES also garnered a nomination for Best Drama Series.
Not much of Nikolaj or Jaime in this episode, but wasn’t Nikolaj cute trying to cut that steak? I know Jaime lost his hand but I loved it when Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) used her knife to stab at the meat allowing Jaime to finally be able to eat. For all that work though all poor Jaime got was a small morsel. Didn’t like Brienne’s pink dress though. I think I like her better in her Kingsguard armor or in the dirty clothes she had on last week. I loved the part where it looked like Brienne was going to do serious harm to Roose Bolton (Michael McElhatton) and Jaime stayed her hand. There’s a screenshot of that in the gallery. I don’t think I like what might be happening to Brienne.

Nikolaj made a guest appearance on the last episode of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE in a small skit featuring guest host Zach Gallifinakis. The skit was a game show based on GAME OF THRONES and Nikolaj showed up to help in a visual clue. (Hint: Ruth Bader Ginsberg). So funny and Nikolaj looked great.
