Sigh.

Congrats, Slinger. You've become only the second person on here to make the Ignore list.

Bye Bye.

Finally! an "Oh $h!+" ending.

And I love that they slightly change the opening each episode to highlight what parts of the world we'll be visiting. Nice touch there.

Wow. That ending was a real WTF moment. :shock:

Magic is used so rarely on the show that when it shows up, it really packs a punch. I guess the "Lord of Light" isn't complete BS after all. :lol:

The hour just seems to FLY by. I was really bummed when the credits rolled right after that particular scene. :(

Spoiler: show
Theon looks like he has something wicked brewing. Arya's squandering away perfectly good death wishes. Lady Cat looks to have found herself in quite the predicament, and with a new, immensely loyal (and equally uncomely) knight. Tyrion is cunning as always. Ever the brilliant strategist and manipulator. Stannis, for what he lacks in charisma, more than makes up for it in military might. He has the largest army, and the strongest claim to the iron throne (the only rightful claim actually). The Greyjoy's are a huge wildcard in all of this. They've made an incredibly messy situation, in more murky. John Snow and his crew, I don't envy at all. It's too damned cold out there where they are. :lol: Danaerys is the scariest of them all. With her indomitable will, and those dragons... All I can say is, Whew.

After the ending of last week, I thought the follow through this week fell a little short.

Armies are marching and battles are looming, I hope that when we finally get to them we aren't disappointed.

It's been a very compelling season thus far. I'm starting to really care for quite a few of the characters. Sadly, a few of them are on opposite sides, so I know they all won't make it. :(

In any case,
Spoiler: show
one "king" down, three to go. Plus a dragon queen. My gut tells me Geoffry's not going to be around much longer. Stannis and the Starks will see to that. But I'm sure there'll be some twists and turns along the way.


Anybody know how many episodes for this season?

Man, it's hard work keeping these screen scene threads alive. :lol: I guess there's really no point in spoiler tags anymore. Lady Catelyn royally screwed up by letting the Kingslayer go free. It'll be interesting to see if her and Rob's relationship can be rebuilt after that. A lot of what's going on with Danaerys in Qarth is not in the books. It certainly doesn't take away from the story though. At least not to me. I think Theon has found a way to propel himself to the top of the "people that I hate on GoT" list, just barely above Joffrey. He's been a real douchebag. With an all-out war looming, I know Tyrion will be the ultimate wildcard in all of it. The next (last?) couple weeks should be awesome.

I've kept from commenting because really, there just isn't much to say.

They have strayed rather far from the source material for many of the characters stories and have seemingly lost a good chunk of storyline to the cutting room floor.

This latest episode really should have had much more punch behind it but so much of the setup for those conversations never happened on the show to make everything seem poignant.

At least we are in the home stretch and the last 2 episodes look to be balls-to-the-wall action. Finally.

Hopefully it won't be a year in between seasons again.

If storyline has been lost, I haven't noticed (granted, I haven't read the books yet). It'll be interesting to see how the final two episodes of the season play out.

And sadly, Ben, it will probably be close to a year before we see another season (next March). That's just how HBO rolls. TruBlood's always in the summer, so it looks like GOT will always be in the spring (and BE in the fall).

Yeah, I kinda figured that would be the trend, but I'd really like to see them just roll right into the next season as soon as possible.

Books 2 and 3 are so tightly woven together that much of what is happening now won't be relevant until somewhen next season. I'd hate for the break to kill that momentum.

From what I understand, fans of the books often had to wait several years between volumes, so one year isn't that much of a hardship.

What has he done? Five books in 15 years?

:mrgreen:

Yeah. True.

But now that I've read 1-4 in about 3 months time I know the general layout of what's to come.

In the preface of book 3 there is an "apology" of sorts for taking so long to get that book out as the 2 books have chapters that overlap and fill in the gaps in eachother's stories. I wish that they had filmed the seasons to be more congruous instead of sticking to 1 book, 1 season, although with the amount of material that has been altered, I'm not sure it really would have mattered.

Also, at the end of Book 4 is another "apology" for the utter disappearance of certain characters' threads with a promise that all will be returned for Book 5. It sounds like it will have another series of overlapping storylines, but I'm not certain as I haven't read that book yet.

Once the season has competed its run and we all have a few weeks to digest I will go back through it all and talk about some of the differences and whether or not I think it will matter to the greater arc of the story. If you all would like me to that is. Maybe late July-ish?
