Walking Dead alum joins Guardians of the Galaxy

You know - I never put 2 and 2 together that he was in JFK.

And Days of Thunder!!  One of my cult classic favorites!

Sorry for the unintended spoiler.   ;)


I'll just try to forget :)  realistically at this pace, I'm years from finishing book 4 and 5 and I'll probably forget in reality  ;D

Theon disappeared until book 5, and then it was half the book until his true identity was revealed. 

This is another situation that works in books, but wouldn't on TV.  If he just appeared a few years from now in the show he'd be easily recognizable, and the mystery wouldn't make sense.  I like what they're doing instead.  Kinda like the Untold Tales of Westeros.  And they're really developing a great new villain.

Well at least I won't continue to think I'm crazy trying to remember his story. I guess I need to get going on Books 4 and 5!

81
I flew through book 3 and I don't recall any resolution of the Theon storyline - is this covered in Feast of Crows??

Anyway, I really liked this episode. And I'm really looking forward to seeing Danny's next scenes!!!

I'm not aware (or if I was, I forgot) of the dirty/clean legs speeder bike. Can someone post pictures or point me towards them. I'm curious.

When I was rewatching Season 2, I skipped over the intro/music each episode (trying to conserve a minute (lol). I had to fight myself each time I did it though. I just love the opening sequence and theme.

85
I was pretty much expecting to see Ser Barristan as soon as they showed the recaps of Season 1 & 2 at the top of the show.  They very deliberately showed the scene where Ser Barristan quit the King's Guard in Season 1.  The whole Dany storyline was very compressed, as well.  But all in all, it worked.

The scene between Tywin and Tyrion was easily the best acted scene of the episode.  Peter Dinklage and Charles Dance play these roles amazingly well!  And I definitely appreciated when Cersei said that she had heard that Tyrion had lost part of his nose in the Battle of the Blackwater.  It was a good nod to fans of the books who may have taken umbrage to Tyrion's wounds not being more severe.

I agree completely on this...  I too liked the "nod" to the book with Tyrion's nose injury. 

86
I rewatched all of Season 2 on blu-ray before this season started.  So I was a few days late getting to the opener.  All in all, I really liked it.  Just enough of each story (except the Stark kids as Nicklab points out) to move along.  There definitely seems to be a different take on Margery in the show too but this was already developping to be different last season.

I'm also a little puzzled by the developments in Astapor with Dany.  I recall that Ser Barristan Selmy had disguised himself for some time as "Arstan Whitebeard" in the book, and had been accompanied by Strong Belwas.  However, I think the disguised Ser Barristan worked far better in the book than it does on screen.  A beard and a cloak don't really serve as much of a disguise for the viewing audience.

It definitely felt like they fast forwarded this whole part.  I seem to recall that Arstan Whitebeard didn't reveal his identity until late in this book.  I wasn't surprised when Ser Barristan announced himself given the "Previously on..." snippet showing his exile from Joffrey's court.

Not sure if this is the right place for this but does anyone follow Kickstarter?  I was looking today and saw they raised over $2 million dollars in one day to fund a Veronica Mars movie.

So on to the previews for next week... Anyone think the "shooter" in the preview for next week is Morgan from Season 1?  He's got to come back sometime??
Good call. At first I thought it would be a little too convenient for them to run into him on a supply run - but it makes a lot more sense considering they went back to Rick's ground zero.

Busy week this week... I just now had time to watch this episode. I really liked it, glad I nailed the Morgan call.  :)

Still, I was disappointed that Rick didn't convince him to come back with him. Rick needs another confidant.

I wasn't sure where else to post this, but when my wife was looking up the video to Gotye's 'Somebody I used to know', I happened to notice this gem as a suggestion:

'The Star Wars that I used to Know' parody song.

My favorite lyric, 'Have your friends direct your movies and they'll turn out better!'

That was awesome!
