I've assumed that the weddings would take place concurrently, cutting back and forth within the same episode. That's how I'd do it, anyway.

um....who is she.  My list just got rearranged.

The scenes with Arya were HBO's creation, but in the books I still found Tywin to be at least somewhat sympathetic as a character.  Still an ass, but he definitely wasn't a two dimensional villain once you understood how the Mad King had treated him and how much he valued his legacy.

The Danni language thing I actually think HBO handled better than the book did.  Or at least it had even more impact on the screen than on the page. 

For the life of me, I can't remember a scene in the book like the one with the sorcerer in the crate.  I remember Varys telling his story of his mutilation, but not the special delivery.

The writers are so good at their craft that they can make a person feel pity for even the loathsome Jamie Lannister.

The thing that impresses me the most about Martin's writing in the novels is his ability to carefully, methodically develop a character fully into a villain you despise and then in one chapter flip your perceptions entirely on end and make turn the villain into the hero you're rooting for. 


And DAMN, does it take a lot of effort to make the discussion of this theory come across as both cryptic and spoiler free!

What he said...the title of the thread warns of spoilers, but still.  This theory comes is such a mind blowing "holy ****" moment that it feels like a HUGE spoiler.  Changes everything.  Awesome. 

I know what L means....Bill if you want I'll message you.  But if you've not run across this theory, it will rock your world.

Sorry for the unintended spoiler.   ;)

It's funny, if not for the HBO show I wouldn't have any idea who it was in the books.  The name was completely dead to me.

This is definitely one of the "go-to" devices for Martin....stop talking about a minor character for thousands of pages, bring them back in under a different name, REVEAL!

I too really think the HBO show does a good job adapting to this by showing us what happened in the interim instead of trying to pull off an awkward surprise twist.

Last night, I couldn't help picturing Jaime Lannister/Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as a Jedi...or Obi-Wan, maybe it is the beard, hairstyle and accent :P

Maybe it's the missing appendage.

I have to say, Cersei may be one of the biggest shockers.  Maybe it's the hair color just throws me off, and don't get me wrong I think she's cute on the show, but she's f'n smoking off it.  Way hotter in her natural hair color and all dolled up in modern clothes.  I'm kinda floored.

Go watch 300 again.

Mind.  Blown.

Brienne of Tarth is one tall mountain of woman to climb

Piglaughed at that.

Here's the link to them all:



It's good to be a piggy.

Margaery Tyrell looks...weird...there though.

Brienne of Tarth   :o

Cersei Lannister:

If the caption hadn't said Lena Headey, I'd have had no clue.


Strange...and cool.  Especially interesting to see Samwell Tarley all cleaned up, and Dany wearing clothing.

I think it speaks very well of the world that HBO has created that it feels weird to see Jamie Lannister interacting with people he's not supposed to have met yet.
