It’s pretty much the usual in this week’s highly anticipated episode of “Game of Thrones.” Another almost-Stark encounter, Littlefinger is creepy, people are tortured, a village is sacked, and oh, one of the main characters is killed off. The only major difference is that the death blow is delivered in what is perhaps the goriest moment of the series yet. THE WALL Ygritte (Rose Leslie), Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju), and their fellow wildings have invaded Mole’s Town, pillaging the unsuspecting townsfolk.
