True... I was thinking along the lines of the Martells, who believe Myrcella is the rightful heir.

If we ignore the reality of the parentage of Cersie's children, then Tommen is the "rightful" heir to Joffrey since Joffrey did not have any offspring.

Depends... on a 'certain point of view'  ;)

I agree with Nick regarding Joff's death.  Sure, he's psychotic, but it's that lack of father-figure plus the fact he is king (and flaunts it despite grandpa telling him a king doesn't tell people he is) Joffrey has power and feels he can get away with anything without repercussion.  He felt he was untouchable.  I don't think Joffrey ever thought he would die (despite seeing many others killed around him) and when he realized he was done for, he realized how helpless he was and that scared him.

Nick, I believe it was Littlefinger

It's amazing how choked up one gets at weddings.

I just don't seem to recall what happens after Yunkai!  Or maybe I should just sit back and watch  ;D

I also really liked Oberyon's appearance and I really liked how uncomfortable Tyrion really was.

If you've only read up to Book 3, then there is more in the later 2 books... so keep reading.

Yes, I loved that scene between the two of them (Tyrion and Oberyn)... as well as Oberyn's scene in the brothel... It just sets the mood for what's to come.

You are probably right, Nick.  I mean that last scene that focused on Ward just watching the blood run down Hand's hand (no, no echo) and then the look afterwards.  Would this change possibly cloud the Clairvoyant's image of Ward?  It will be interesting to see how it all goes down.

I was a bit spoiled as to know there were 2 agents but didn't know who.  It became very obvious when Ward volunteered to escort Garrett to the Fridge due to it being personal and Hand allowing it.  Just the protocol would be against it: where is Ward's allegiance? If it's personal, would Garrett find himself gunned down (as Hand offered Ward)?  But Garrett/Ward being HYDRA makes sense as the SO can indoctrinate the junior agent slowly.  I guess Triplett must have been new with Garrett though it didn't feel that way, so you'd think his allegiance might be swayed as well.

I don't recall the % of SHEILD that was infiltrated by HYDRA, but it seemed quite significant.

Saw it today.  Was pretty intense and cool.  Wow!  There are a few things I'm going to have to look up since I'm not familiar with the comics.

Best line:  "Shall we play a game?"

That is exactly what this show should be, an extension of the films, filling in the gaps in between, etc.

The downside of this is that having too many movie tie-ins could hurt the show because the viewer that didn't see one of the movies is in the dark... or if they saw it, they didn't see it right away.  Not everyone is a die-hard fan that will be out in the theater the first few days after the movie opens, or if they are, they have too many thing going on in life to do so.

I haven't watched the recent episode yet (it's on DVR waiting for me) and I need to go see CA2 yet... so I guess I'm good that I can hold off on any of the SHIELD episodes until I see the movie.  ;D

Gee, that's quite nice of her.  I should try and finish out my vintage collection some day... I'm missing a few... and not overly worried about condition.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2014 Wave 1

Well, we'll see if my order [6" Stormtrooper] with tru.com went through...

Got the Stormtrooper in the mail today, so I should be happy about it, right?  There's black paint just between the eyes under the brim of the forehead.  *face palm*  I guess I'm not sure whether to take off the paint (not sure how to do it without ruining the figure) or look for a good one in stores.

$50 isnt' bad for the cards if it's got all the series and they're in good shape.  The orange series, the last, is one of the hardest to get.  The Wonder Bread ones I've seen listed for @$15.  I wonder if he has the stickers as well?

He's not in stock as of 7:09PM CST.   :(

Well, we'll see if my order with tru.com went through... I know of your experiences with them, Justin, so I know I shouldn't be surprised if it gets cancelled.  But still, I talked to a TRU rep as I ordered who said they were in stock, so CS will get an earful if I don't get one.
