I did a search of the forums and hadn't seen anything recent besides the Australia got pwned thread. So I decided to start this thread up as my hunger for season 4 is growing by the second. If I somehow missed another thread covering this season please lock/delete this one.

I was prompted to make this thread by this 15 minute long video of the cast talking about what is coming and what we should expect. Not sure if many of you have seen it but for those that haven't give it a look.



I am hanging out more for this show than any other I can remember, a year between seasons feels like a frigging lifetime :)

Nice find Konstie.

Just read a story GRRM says it's possible that there maybe a movie in the works and he also hints that the show could run for 7, 8 or even 10 seasons.

Caught this video via a link from one of the other videos one of you posted and thought it was interesting. It covers a little about the relationship between Ramsey and Roose and how it compares to Ned and John which I found interesting particularly since we haven't seen anything of Roose and Ramsey interacting.

The soldiers in the forest who were going to bumrape him? Yeah, they were really killed, the guy who killed them who was torturing Theon is Ramsay Bolton, Roose Bolton's son, and basically hes a MASSIVE c***. He likes to pretend to release prisoners, and then hunt them down again, its a thing he does (along with the torture and the flaying). So it was a setup, but I doubt those guys in the forest were in on it, they were just collateral damage.

I think you mean 'Poor HBO'... SURE, they've made a butt-load from Foxtel for the deal, but if they're going to restrict their method of distribution in such a way, the rest of us will 'find a way'.

I'll be buying S4 as soon as it is available to me to purchase (it's usually $50-55AUD on B-DVD... @ $5.50 an episode >Queue the Fry 'Take my Money' Meme<)

Even if I threw $35 per month at it for two months with the 14-day 'free trial' [which you can't], that leaves me ~$20 out of pocket, and with a lot of s*** (and S*** loads more advertising) than I care for

Then there's this:
^Min cost $25 per month on direct debit based on a single genre-based package. #Min cost $50 for 1 month on a direct debit based on a single Premium Pick.
*New Australian residential users with a compatible internet connected device running an eligible operating system. See full list of compatible devices here. Not all channels/content available on all devices with Foxtel Play and Foxtel Go. Xbox LIVE Gold subscription required for use on Xbox 360 (charges apply). $15 per month discount only applies for the first three months if you subscribe to the Premium Movies and Drama pick between 1-30 April 2014. At the end of the first three months, the Premium Movies and Drama Pick will be charged at $25 per month. Free first 14 days of Live TV and Catch Up offering only. Additional charges apply for Foxtel On Demand titles. Credit card details are required at time of sign up for any ongoing direct debit subscription payments if you do not cancel your subscription during the first 14 days. Ongoing subscription fees reflective of your package apply unless you cancel your subscription. Offer ends 30th April 2014. Broadband Internet connection with minimum speed of at least 3Mbps required. ISP and data charges may apply. Only available for use in Australia. Foxtel Go available on compatible smartphone and tablet devices with an eligible operating system. See full list here. You must subscribe to the relevant channel/tier in your Foxtel Play pack to access corresponding content on Foxtel Go. Video quality may vary. Full terms and conditions available at www.foxtel.com.au/foxtelplay/terms.


Minimum expenses of $100 for two months, or $105 for three (to catch a whole season of GoT @ 10 weeks approx).
Then I've gotta chew through my own data unless I let someone into my place to bodge up a physical install.
(n.b. I'm not sure what the minimum sign up period is, of course then there's cancellation fees etc etc).

So... I'm not sure how much iTunes had the seasons going for previously, but whatever it was, it was a lot better an option that going the Foxtel route [even if you were religiously opposed to an Apple service].

Unfortunately, this year, you have no choice locally.

Whilst I've not read the books, I kinda liked the constant sly grin on the 'Original Daario'.

I can't wait to see the recast of 'The Mountain' Thor Bjornsson... 6'9" and 190kg+ if that's not the very definition of a 'mountain of a man' then I don't know what is.

(Still sad to see that Conan Stevens (the first of three to play the Mountain) not come back into the role)

Yeah that was justified, and by season 3 it worked alright.

At first I wasn't 100% sure if Darius was recast, then I remembered how he was in the previous episodes, and this guy just seems too different. :S

So the iron throne from the TV shows isnt right says Martin

Thanks to a recent blog post by Martin titled “The Real Iron Throne,” however, we can finally get a glimpse of what Martin actually had in mind. While he acknowledges that the HBO version has become “iconic,” and is perhaps more realistic, “It’s still not right. It’s not the Iron Throne I see when I’m working on The Winds of Winter. It’s not the Iron Throne I want my readers to see. The way the throne is described in the books… HUGE, hulking, black and twisted, with the steep iron stairs in front, the high seat from which the king looks DOWN on everyone in the court… my throne is a hunched beast looming over the throne room, ugly and asymmetric.”
http://www.wired.com/wp-content/uploads/images_blogs/underwire/2013/07/throne-big.jpg
Instead, says Martin, the above image painted by artist Marc Simonetti for the upcoming The World of Ice and Fire concordance, is the closest he’s seen to the Iron Throne of his own imagination, and and the one that he plans to offer as reference to any future artists who attempt to depict the Westerosi seat of power.
http://www.wired.com/2013/07/real-iron-throne-hbo-martin/#slideid-548481

interesting that the show managed to turn a failing of making the throne out of 1000 swords (what martin really wanted) into a good lesson:

a conversation between Littlefinger and Varys, the two great political power-brokers of King’s Landing. “There aren’t a thousand blades. There aren’t even two hundred. I’ve counted,” said Littlefinger, who turned the apparent departure from canon into a fantastic metaphor for the myths and illusions of power that prop up the political system of Westeros. “Do you know what the realm is? It’s the thousand blades of Aegon’s enemies — a story we agree to tell each other over and over, until we forget that it’s a lie.”


That is a good use of art. True or false its the story that matters.

Great episode, just finished here

On another note I am really starting to like Oberon. Smooth as silk a real cool customer and has some great lines, can't wait to see more of him.

Cersei really needs to go she is becoming a bigger problem even though her power seems to be slipping away. The sooner she is toast the better if for no other reason that it might free Jamie up so he can really become a decent guy. It seems she has always been the only thing that ever held him back.... what a massive f*****g b**** she is.

I dunno how long we're sposed to tiptoe around things, so spoiler tags just to be safe:

Spoiler:
The 'nobody left to hate' thing that Tufnut mentioned is actually something I've been wondering around with the show after this season. When you start killing off all your strongest characters (well, as far as show frontrunners), you're going to have to do a lot of work to elevate some of the others to the same status to fill the void, and not sure they're quite there. Not spoiling anything from the future or anything, but the fourth book was imo the weakest book too, kinda for that same reason. They start bringing in all these new Dorne characters, and Iron Islands characters to fill the void, but they're all new characters you don't really give much of a s*** about because you don't know them yet, so it has nowhere near the same level of engagement.

And he didn't suffer long enough. But yeah, I loved the "if you've read the book, you'll notice the killer" scene. I think my sister and friend completely missed all of it because they were wondering who it was. It was pretty well done. Subtle enough to miss easily, but not if you know where to look.

I've no idea what necklace you're talking about Eorl.

Perhaps I'm looking at the scene too literally, but there's little evidence to support it being Tyrion or Sansa.
I do note that no-one has chalked the suspected poisioning up to the pie or the fork it is eaten from either.

I'd be leaning towards Olenna Tyrell myself; though there is little evidence to support that either.
Only the fool Dontos Hollard seems to be in on it.

Looking over the whole sequence again shows that Varys has a sour look on his face the entire time (doesn't make him a suspect per se) but more importantly, during the whole sequence of the '5 kings' he's looking elsewhere, and then just a moment before Joffrey pours his wine on Tyrion, his demeanor changes a little... (Might just be him being amused by Tyrion's line, but who [in the non-book reading group] knows...)

Perhaps it was Colnel Mustard, in the Kitchen, with the tainted pie?

I also noticed that the GoT IMDB page has it's own unique colour scheme now...

Is that the actual explanation? While I suspected her due to all her lines about killing a king at his wedding, it seems an awfully convoluted method when she could just carry one of those beforehand rather than taking it from Sansa...

Less risk. I mean Tyrion took the fall for it anyway, but if that hadn't happened and after some investigation it was traced back, the blame is going to land on Sansa since she still has the necklace.

Thanks for the link Khel.

In this case it's hardly spoilery, all the sequence is there, plain as day to see. (Though I appreciate the consideration ravn0s).
I think everyone in here gets when the episode becomes available... and if there are others visiting between 'airing time' and their own viewing, then that risk lays with them.

LOL @ that image pARODY.

I'm surprised at the lack of meme's from Joffrey's 'derp death face'.

Natalie Dormer, 'Margaery Tyrell' according to IMDB.
I keep seeing that sly smile she used a lot in 'The Tudors', although the character she plays in this is sufficiently different (combined with the bit where the Tudors was how many years ago?)

I keep seeing the show as 'Game of Rome' atm... Ellaria Sand (Oberyn Martells 'common' other-half) sees the cast from Rome climb one step higher (taking it to 3 now. Ciaran Hinds (Mance Rayder), Tobias Menzies (Edmure Tully) and Indira Varma (Ellaria Sand)) I'm sure there were more... I must've missed someone...

Nerf check the links above for reference to the Necklace theory.
I'm sure it'll be revealed in time.

Ah, I thought that the Sand character might have been the woman from Rome. They're both HBO I think.

Now that I think about it., god dammit almost any of the Rome actors/character would be good in GoT, Mark Antony, the newsreader, etc.

As for the links above, the problem is that Anne Boleyn put the cup on the empty table... From one angle it kind of looked like it was the next table, but then from other angles it wasn't...

I made this thread to talk about the season and yes that includes the day it comes out. Honestly if you haven't seen the lastest episode what are you even doing in here? As for the "real men" thread its a zillion pages long and over a year old. We've all been around the net long enough to know that if you are worried about spoilers you probably shouldn't enter threads discussing the topic. As it stands right now the bulk of the people commenting here get it yet a small group don't.

Yeah, in that shot, the cup is way closer to the camera than she is, its about a table length away from her in reality. Tbh I'm not entirely sure when it was done either, because the cup is far enough away that she would have had to stand up and lean over to reach it by that point and surely that would be rather noticeable. Unless of course Margaery was in on it, and Olena palmed the strangler crystal off to Margaery and she did it when Joffrey handed her the cup.

Well, its already differed a little, and they never explicitly spell out or show how she did it in the book, whereas I think it'll need to be more explicit for the sake of the show. In the book its more like Sansa noticing a bit missing off her jewelry afterwards, and it was actually Olena who gave her the jewelry in the book so she makes the connection/assumption, along with a few sly looks and comments from the tyrells.
This all sounds like book spoilers =\

Maybe demon should have used spoiler tags, but really the 'whodunnit' but isn't spoilery (I don't think anyway).

I'm still cheerin that he bit it. Sure he deserved something far more grotesque, but the humiliation factor, being poisoned at a Wedding... that's a massive 'two-finger salute' to the Lannisters. I can't wait to see how Martell makes others squirm about it (amongst other flow on effects)

I'm also curious to see if Margaery Tyrell is allowed to keep her crown (given that the wedding wasn't 'consumated' etc etc)

People had been talking about that for the last page or so of this thread, and posting big infographics explaining it, so I figured it was out in the open now.

But honestly, its kept so vague, they could go in any direction with it. A lot of it is all circumsantial or is assumptions.

Its also the easiest person to link considering the Lanisters owe so much and the Tyrell's know it will never be paid back. Also just look at her face when Tyrion grabs the cup moments before his death, she gave a look of "s***, sorry you are about to be framed!"

What do you mean by the Lannister's owing so much and the Tyrell's knowing it will never be paid back? The Lannister's are the richest family in Westeros? This marriage was basically to try and repair the relationship because they supported Renly's claim initially. adding highgarden's power to shore up the lannisters and the king and giving them a Queen/Royalty which is what Mace wanted

Book Spoilers:
Spoiler:
pretty sure that in the books Olenna didn't give the jewellery to Sansa, i think it was still Dontos, but it was some hair piece thing and Olenna came across and fixed her hair and grabbed the crystal then. littlefinger was involve d in the plotting from memory, hence the involvement of Dontos, but i thought Olenna just wanted to get rid of Joffrey because he was a complete prick and she had heard all about how he treated Sansa and didn't want that for Margaery, plus Loras probably would have killed him had he been on the kingsguard when joffrey was abusing herSpoiler:

It's pretty obvious who poisoned the little s*** because I've read the books and my wife who hasn't read the books pick up on it straight away when she saw the episode.

I'm not sure on the actors name who played Joffery but holy s*** he did an excellent job being a righteous little c***! Shame he is throwing in the towel.

Its also the easiest person to link considering the Lanisters owe so much and the Tyrell's know it will never be paid back. Also just look at her face when Tyrion grabs the cup moments before his death, she gave a look of "s***, sorry you are about to be framed!"


How exactly do the Lanisters owe them more money than they can pay back? Actually how do the Lanisters owe them anything? The crown is what owes the cash since Robert left the crowns funds up the s*** not to mention the war costs. The Lanisters are loaded to the eye balls.

No, the Lannisters are broke. Spending and spending has continued through debts, but they've not been called on to repay those debts. They keep promisinig to repay debts, and things are purchased on the promise of repayment because they have no money to pay for things with. They have some, for what's need immediately, but for the most part the Lannisters are broke and they're cleverly hiding it - mostly behind the known promise, "A Lannister always repays his debts". People think they're good for the loan, so they're happy to take payment later, but there's going to be some shocks when those loans are called in.

From my limited understand of the Lannister financial situation, they are alright but the crown is broke. In previous episodes Tyrion says about little finger rubbing his hands together and coin appears, its because they have massive loans.

"Anyway, it's not my father I'm worried about. It's the Iron Bank of Braavos. We owe them tens of millions. If we fail to pay these millions, the Bank will fund our enemies. One way or another, they always get their gold."
―Tyrion Lannister

The Lannisters have been pouring money into the crown too I think. I wonder if Peter Baylish did this intentionally, taking massive loans to eventually bankrupt the crown and cause the Lannisters problems.

I have no idea where people got the idea that the lanisters were hard up for a gold dragon but sure as hell saw no mention of it in the season to date. I recall little finger making the comment about the books and how the numbers are easy once you make them behave. The crown is f***ed for cash thats why Tyrion had to go hat in hand to ole granma to help fund the wedding.

His old man would never let the family go broke because it would f*** up his legacy which as we should have all worked out by now is the greatest driving force behind everything he does.

The House of Lannister and the Kingdom of Westeros are two separate entities.

Well, still, Tyrell's have a crap ton to gain from killing the king. They get to put their own blood on the throne if Margaret becomes queen and they can pin it on a Lannister and start an internal war to rip the house to shreds. Seems like a win win from my perspective.

they had their own blood on the throne when joffrey was alive though as he was marrying margaery, but by getting rid of joffrey they rid the kingdom of a capricious, annoying, vicious c*** and then by Spoiler:
marrying margaery to tommen, they get control over the king because tommen is a kind boy who is much more easily manipulated

Think Raven is confusing the Kingdom of Westeros, which is super broke, and the House of Lannister, which is very much still super rich.

As we're seeing in the show though, the Lannister house is becoming rather f***ed in the lineage department. Swordhandless and kingsguard Jamie, Cersie's crazy, now Joffreys dead. Only Tommen and Myrcella remain.

Nah but he pointed out to his old man he has no interest in being anything other than in the kings guard and the kings guard dont marry or have kids from my understanding of it. So unless tyrion has a rugrat or two the family name ends right there which would be a major concern to tywin because he is all about legacy.

Yeah, the kingsguard are prohibited from marriage, lands or titles. I think Jamie's value was his swordsmanship (from the realm's perspective), he was one of the best and most feared in the kingdom, without his sword hand he's nothing really (except a traitorous kingslayer who no longer needs to be feared! and a rumored partaker of the incests!).

Second family and on aren't the same I reckon, it'd knock them to being a lesser house unless they can sort it out.

Lol yeah like Tywin would cop that. He wouldnt give a s*** about anyone outside his own immediate family and we have seen him more or less say as much in the past. Its either Jamie or heaven forbid the Imp.

On a side note i happen to think Jamie and Tyrion would work well together if the b**** and daddy f***ed right off.

That was a really good political episode, and I friggin love how Kahlisi's character has evolved into this very tactical dragon lady. Throwing those collars into the slave city was just a big f you to all the slavers, and such a swift way of getting slaves to rally for you.

I have a feeling there is just going to be a mass slaughter when it comes to Castle Black and the Crows, they are outnumbered massively and that isn't even mentioning giants. They either stay and wait for the murder spree or they go out and face their death. Not really coming up Crows anytime soon.

Unless something is completely broken with the TV show's narrative, Selmy is the old bloke across the sea serving the Mother of Dragons as the Queensguard.

You may be thinking of Ser Janos Slynt, former commander of the City Watch in King's Landing.

He got confused with the kings guard and the city watch thats all. Selmy was the lord commander of the kings guard until joffrey more or less fired him after that the next time we see him is when he shows up and saves dani from that scorpion thing that popped out of that ball the kid was playing with.

I think Oberyn will get to fight The Mountain at some point. In some of the trailer videos and such for season 4, you see him using a spear. I could be wrong though, could be for something different.

The whole Danny story line does not interest me at the moment.

Good to see Jamie feeling energetic after the loss of his hand lol.

Interesting take on the whole Cersei/Jaimie rape scene by a random but interesting Tumblr fan. I didn't really bat an eyelid like the rest of the world seemed to when the scene happened, maybe just because its Game of Thrones but after reading it wasn't suppose to be like that it is interesting knowing that RR signed off on it.

If the rape was meant as some sort of comeuppance on Cersei as part of the Jaime redemption arc then yes it is everything that the blogger said. However if it is part of just showing how much of a c*** Jaime is then it was fine I reckon.

Ah yes all the moral outrage over the rape scene.

So Jamie is bad when he is with his sister (in her sphere of influence) so he gets a bit "rapey" but really what he wants is to be good. After all that turning into a better guy has been his character arc for the last dozen eps.

From the blog eorl linked:

The show uses rape as Cersei’s comeuppance, her poetic justice for tainting the honorable Jaime’s good honor. That’s why the show’s writers didn’t see it as an out of character action, because Jaime isn’t Jaime when he’s with Cersei, he’s just some pitiful victim of her machinations. When he assaults her, she’s only reaping what she sowed.


It should be noted that this is from the perspective of a 19 year old female who is self professed: "Feminist, queer positive, sex positive, body positive" but yeah still wtf is with Jamie raping his sister? Its just pretty poor writing and for whatever reason or justification even if the director of this episode said he didn't see this scene as rape because "it became consensual at the end" that is just dumb logic.

Stupid TV version.

But back to the moral outrage: Still its Game of Thrones and the logic of that world is not our own. I think that is what many people watching the TV show fail to grasp. This show isnt meant to be a reflection of this worlds systems (ethical / moral ones included). Its a closed system. In this world it is never OK to rape. Not even if they are "no" at 1st then "yes" later. In fact especially if that happens. The whole "i knew she wanted it and she was just saying no" thing is huge in society. ITs a big thing that as a society we are or should be trying to get across as a responsible thing.But in a game of throne ep supposedly its ok for it to happen.

When people try to translate our world messages to fantasy worlds it doesnt work (well maybe in some fantasy or sci fi where thats the point - like star trek etc) so why the moral outrage over the scene?

You know I was fine with this show when it was just violence, murder, torture, incest, disfigurement, impending rape, implied rape, threats of rape, detailed stories of rape and screams of rape in the background of battle scenes. Oh and that time that Danaerys was crying and in pain during that sort-of-non-consensual visceral sex scene. And all those scenes with sex slaves women forced into the sex trade since childhood fully consenting prostitutes.

But actual rape, where she says no and everything? Horrible.

From what i have read its not the rape that has people bothered its the fact that Jamie was seen to be turning a corner and people were starting to like him. Of course people are now pissed because he did something of so horrible of course seemingly forgetting this was a guy that grew up f*****g his sister and pushing children out of windows.

He has issues and likely always will so they need to get over it.

Good episode tonight we almost saw Jamie shed a tear in a pretty big 180 from last week. Mind you that's not to surprising since Brienne is undoubtedly a great influence on him and she clearly has his respect, its a shame they are parting ways. Interesting to see that the white walkers as we have seen them in the past aren't all the same and it seems they have at least one "leader" I guess you could call him that actually looks quite different.

They covered a lot of ground in this episode and I liked it, can't wait to see next weeks :)

Rape scene didn't stand-out for me, didn't know it was a thing until this thread. Just figured it was another layer of f***ed-up for Jaime Lannister. Just occurred to me it's probably because I wasn't empathising with Cersai, on account of her being a f*****g c***.

That would be .. Caster.
Spoiler:

Seems so. You also saw a bunch of blurred out white walky things. My thinking is that you have Trash Mob White Walkers, the half rotted ones that die to a bit of Dragonglass in the back, and you have the real White walkers that aren't rotted at all. I wonder if they die as 'easily'. These would have been made from the babies like we saw.



I'm also keen to see where they are taking the White Walkers, for we have Melisandre who champions Fire, and obviously the White Walkers are for Ice. (A Song of Ice and Fire). Anyway, it would be far too convenient and easy to label the white walkers/ICE as evil for something with the excellent plot of GoT, so I expect the story to take it into a more neutral ground where you have reason to sort of rally with the White Walkers.

I reckon it will be hard to create sympathy and support for a race of blue-eyed, baby stealing, evil old men who use terror inducing screams as communication. Maybe the wildlings will eventually become more sympathetic (despite their recent uptake of mass murder and cannibalism) and will team up with the southerners to kill the WW.

Did you guys not see ep 3 at all? Bolton outright says ill give a keep to the one that finds Bran and Ricon. This just after Ramsey quizzes Theon and he mentions that Jon Snow is at the wall. Its pretty simple 2+2 = why Noah Taylors character is at the wall isnt it?

It's fine if the series deviates from the books. I'd prefer two different takes on the A song of ice and fire world then a direct remake of the books. That way you can enjoy both quite nicely.

Am I the only one who was disappointed with the latest episode? I have read books 1 to 5, and I must say, they are straying so much from the book now. It's ridiculous!!!


i thought this ep would a complete pigs breakfast, it was all over the shop and has departed massively from the books.

Meh, I don't think its really deviating from the books that much. Sounds like most of the b****ing is from the same people who b****ed when the LOTR movies weren't a word-for-word adaptation of what was written on the page. Different mediums, different ways of telling a story, different restrictions, so some things are going to change, but it seems to be hitting all the same story beats to me.

Keep in mind, the books were written from specific characters' points of view, so theres things they can do in the books they can't in the show (like give insight into a character's thoughts, and filter the world through their perceptions), and theres things they can do in the show they can't in the books (like show us what is going on in other parts of the world without needing a character there to witness it). I'm sure the white walker stuff is happening in the books too, because Craster is giving his boys to the white walkers in the books also, but since theres no book character present to see the white walkers take the babies and convert them and all that, its not in the book. Same as the scenes at Craster's Keep, probably still happening in the book also but since nobody was there to see it, its not in the book.

I guess Bran's story is a little bit changed, but tbh his story in the books is a bit of a mess after he goes past the wall anyway, so I don't mind them mixing it up and giving him some more interesting stuff to do besides slogging through snow with that coldhands guy and his undead fairy moose. I don't miss that at all, cos it always struck me as a bit silly in the books, and that character went nowhere anyway. Still plenty of room to hit all the important story points with Bran and his group.

The stuff with Jon Snow going back to Craster's keep, I'm waiting to see how that plays out, its a change but it could make for some cool scenes and as long as they don't drop any of the other stuff thats coming up to fit it in, I'm happy to have it. Rven outside of the strategic aspect of it, it makes sense Jon would want a bit of payback for what those c**** did to Mormont.

I'm with Khel, change is OK. You are watching a TV series, not reading a book.

Yeah, I'm guessing they are leaving Spoiler:
the assault on the wall until near the end of the series, last couple of episodes + the other stuff. The crasters arc happening now is helping fill the time until the climatic wall battle.

I don't really understand why people get upset about the difference between books and their film/TV adaptions. If you want them to just make a carbon copy, what would be the point of making it. You really need to treat them as separate entities.

Another great episode, the scale of little fingers plotting is really starting to become apparent. As youll see its him that set in motion all the events we have watched unfold from day one either directly or indirectly through his actions. I also liked the nice little death scene at the end which i have to say i enjoyed way to much :-).

I am a bit disappointed that Jon yet again misses Bran by frigging nano seconds, but i guess it has to be that way for Bran to be able to continue his journey.

Good episode, set up some interesting political threads with the whole "s*** we owe the bank a heap money what we do?!" and Bran's story was actually interesting for once (poor Hodor). Khaleesi's story is starting to get really stupid now. First she wanted to take over the seven kingdoms and so goes on a voyage to find boats, now she finds them but wants to take care of Slave Bay. I mean, there has to be compromises on such a quest but jeez make up your mind.

OK, so that bit with Cersei and Tywin, it is pretty interesting that the Lanisters are basically bankrupted to the Iron Bank?

The Iron Bank will always have it's due.

I didn't take it as the Lannisters were broke, its the crown that owes all the money to the Iron Bank, not the Lannisters. More of a "Well, our mines are tapped out, so we aren't going to be able to cover the crown's debts alone, hence we need the Tyrells". I'm sure we've had this argument before in this same thread! But the Lannisters, and the Crown, are separate things. Its just that the head of house Lannister also happens to be pretty much running the kingdom and his house has been pretty much funding the crown, but they're not one and the same.

The Lannisters aren't broke, the Crown/Kingdom is, think of it as a government! And the Lannister family as interested and wealthy investors, who happen to also currently be politicians in said government. Though think they're saying even they aren't rich enough to fund the entire Kingdom alone, so it needs some of the other wealthy houses and the Iron bank. I can't recall anything about the mines not producing.

Is it that surprising? I mean what do we think Westeros's GDP is? What are their main exports? Plus with the recent wars and political turmoil, they're basically in a economic recession.

I thought that episode was pretty slow other than the fight between whatshisface and Lord Curls. I'm always waiting for the punch to the face when watching GoT so the slow burn episodes that don't end with a main character being beheaded just seem to leave me hanging in suspense.

The slave bay thing definitely needed more build up, I didn't even know that there was such a place called slaver's bay until this episode, or that these cities were connected, or that she was stationing people in the cities that she left behind, or anything. It all just got pulled out of the air all of a sudden to make her story awkwardly regressive when it could have been awesome if handled right.

Her whole story is pretty meh, I presume it gets better when she actually crosses the sea and starts s*** up. Its pretty much the whole basis of Game of Thrones, plots thicken and twist and turn, waiting to pop at the right time and when they do it can be either really good (Little Finger's stuff) or just bad (Khaleesi).

so did I!!

I've never read the books nor watched the show up until recently, I started over the Easter / ANZAC and I'mm fully up to date with everything now.

I have to say people sperg about this show, maybe because I was listening to the hype and had huge expectations about the show but I don't think it's the best ever. I am glad that f***** Joffrey died, he was a right twat. There is definitely a lot going on with the amount of stories and characters but it keeps it interesting.

That red wedding episode was golden, I love how they are happy to kill off main cast members. I was all about Ned and then Rob Stark - now I am cheering for Tyrian (s/p?) and John Snow oddly enough.

That s*** is gunna take time, she will need some sort of stay-at-home army, sif waste unsullied on that task.

I was totally won over by Arya when she slaughtered the s*** out of that Frey soldier on the road side shortly after the red wedding. As for the Hound he has a total lack of bulls***, the guy is a total thug but you just cant help but love his brutal honesty. Imho the pair of them together is absolute gold.

Arya still comes off as a sweet little thing with a little dirt under her nails and while being clearly phyically fragile has no compunction about sticking you if youre an a******. She isnt the stereo typical "women can do anything" s*** character we get jammed down our throats so often these days she is something better than that. Kind of like Ripley from Alien, you know she is scared but she has some business to take care of and she makes herself get the job done.

Next episode should be good, we may finally see Tyrion go to trail and see stuff go down. Tywin from the looks of Ep6 preview, will vote him guilty. I think Oberyn won't because even though he hates the Lannisters, voting him guilty too is what Tywin wants.

Poor Tyrion is really getting the shaft tonight, but i guess we always knew that was going to be the case. The more i see of Oberon the more i like him. As for the others, well its clear Jamie doesnt like whats going on but of course he pretty much has to keep his mouth shut i guess in public at least.

All up through i guess this episode was just setting the stage for next week.

Dat ending.

I wonder who wrote the score to the Rains of Castamere?

And who are you, the proud lord said,
that I must bow so low?
Only a cat of a different coat,
that's all the truth I know.
In a coat of gold or a coat of red,
a lion still has claws,
And mine are long and sharp, my lord,
as long and sharp as yours.

And so he spoke, and so he spoke,
that Lord of Castamere,
But now the rains weep o'er his hall,
with no one there to hear.
Yes now the rains weep o'er his hall,
and not a soul to hear.

Did Jamie go talk to tyrion in the books?

I found Varys interesting this episode, he has said previously that he serves the realm but seemed to indicate to Oberyn that he wanted the crown himself. He also said to Tyrion that he doesn't forget a thing and I'm wondering what he meant by that.

I assume the person to fight will be picked by Cersei as the accuser and I'm expecting a fight between Bron and the kings guard guy that featured in the episode, more to the point I want to see a fight between those two. The episode title does seem to indicate a fight between Oberyn and the Mountain though.

I found Varys interesting this episode, he has said previously that he serves the realm but seemed to indicate to Oberyn that he wanted the crown himself. He also said to Tyrion that he doesn't forget a thing and I'm wondering what he meant by that.

I assume the person to fight will be picked by Cersei as the accuser and I'm expecting a fight between Bron and the kings guard guy that featured in the episode, more to the point I want to see a fight between those two. The episode title does seem to indicate a fight between Oberyn and the Mountain though.



I think when he says "Sadly my lord, I never forget a thing" ment that he does not forget what Tyrion did (saved kings landing from stanis with the green fire stuff) but his hands are tied because Cersi would....have his balls, So to speak lol.

Awesome scenario:
Tyrion demands trial by combat. Tywin, coward he is, picks Jamie to fight for him so he doesn't have to kill Tyrion.
Tyrion, awesome he is, uses some loophole that requires whoever he picks to fight for him, and picks Tywin to fight for him.

Therefore: For Tywin to "win" and execute Tyrion, he has to die. On the other hand for Tywin to survive, he has to kill Jamie, which then means executing Tywin, so he's killed half of what's left of his family in one go.

Alternative: Tyrion chooses Cersei to fight for him. Ahahah ;D



Ahh, shame neither of these will happen.

Daenerys was the hottest on the show.

Then game Margaery and usurped that position in mighty fashion. Dany has said she isn't showing any more boob action. Fail.
Margaery hasn't said no though, I could do with some more material from her!

I think itll be the court under Tywin that will pick the mountain knowing itll push Oberon to throw his hat into the ring for Tyrion. Tywin will more or less kill two birds with one stone. If Oberon wins he will in some way be appeased for the revenge he seeks over the death of his sister at the hands of the mountain. If Oberon loses he will no long be an issue to the lannisters.

No matter who wins Tywin can claim he gave Tyrion every possible chance to get out of this. Tywin will see his hands as being clean and justice was served. On top of that he will no doubt hold Jamie to his promise of leaving the kings guard saying that even though Tyrion f***ed up their plan to have him plead guilty they had an agreement and Jamie must fulfill his end of it.

I think Tywin showed himself for being a lot more cunning in the last episode than he has before. His quick response to Jamies proposal kind of suggested to me that he knew Jamie was going to do it. Given how lop sided the the trial has been its not hard to see how Tywin may have fixed that in order to force Jamies hand.

For those of you that think anyone would ask Jamie to take part in this fight i think youre kidding yourselves. His sister wouldnt put him up for it and Tywin sure as hell wouldnt because either of them gain anything by putting Jamies head on a chopping block with his reduced capacity to fight. As for Tyrion, well he loves his brother and simply wouldnt want to risk him.

Its more likely in my mind that Tyrion will ask for Bronn and Oberon will put his hand up.

Dany has said she isn't showing any more boob action.

I'm pretty sure that was just a rumour. She's currently getting nude in front of hundreds of people every night for a Broadway show she's in.

Well the fight between Oberon and the Mountain didnt happen tonight as some of us thought it might. So the episode title was a little misleading. Arya came through again with a little bit of her darkside, gotta love the way she can flip back and forth between normal little girl and stone cold killer in a blink. It was always kind of nice to get a peek inside the Hounds mind albeit brief. I have to say i felt sorry for the guy because the pain he suffered was more than just the physical.

Nice to see the moon door featuring tonight, although it does worry me that Sansa had to witness her aunt going for a fly. I cant help but feel that puts her in more danger than she has ever been in before because she now knows way to much about little finger and given how calculating that prick is i could see him silencing her in a flash if he thought itd benefit him or if she was to pose a risk to his plans.

Nah he killed her because of Sansa, no way he would hurt her after that. Sansa has no one else in the world anyway, she survived Joffery and the Lanisters so she knows how to keep her head down.

I was sitting on the edge of my seat with a stupid grin on my face waiting for the big fight and now I am much disappoint. Something to look forward to I guess.

I'd argue the opposite, they had some pretty big moments especially with Tyrion and Oberyn. The bit with Arya chatting to the dead guy was definitely filler, but she is turning into a straight badass chick so I don't care. All I want is to see that little turd thrown through the moon door and all will be well.

Was kind of disappointed that they made Lysa scream as she fell. It's specifically mentioned in the book how she doesn't even flinch when he pushes her after telling her he only loved Cat. It felt a bit more intense that way. Oh well, still happy to see her die.

Rorge and Biter killed off too!

Also, doesn't look like anyone posted this yet.

Old Daario was kinda lame, but new Daario is a complete tosser. He could at least dye his beard blue.

It feels like some running joke now that the mountain seems to get recast every time he appears. They new guy is only 24, wtf, he's meant to be the Hound's older brother.

Cool ep though, nice to see Bronn get a good send off.

i dunno about the mountain. Lots of big of stature guys have really mellow personalities if you meet them in real life - really nice gentlemen. This guy looks to be one of those which normally is nice but when your trying to be the murderous Mountain its just not so convincing. Of course i wouldn't say that to his face ;p

Haven't read the books but I'd say John snow will be dead pretty soon, to much of a hero as for Khaleesi and her army let's not be fools now even though it's huge, getting bigger and gathering more momentum every episode and let's not forget the dragons! It will be annihilated in less than a day...

The Wall was built when magic was strong. The spells still linger on the wall. But the main thing is the Wall is made up of 50+ meters of solid ice in thickness and about 250 meters tall. It isn't going to be pushed over by a giant or an army of giants. There are the gates though and they have to be defended. John wanted to seal them up with ice, which is a really fkn good idea. But nnnooopppeee d***wards wanted to power play over john because of Ego. Let's see how that works out.

The Wildlings don't know about that secret entrance do they? The one that Sam used.


That "secret" entrance is into a completely different structure. As for the wall there is a passage and a gate which they talked about at some length in the last episode, you know the one John said wouldnt stop the giants.

Ah good to hear than. Yeah I have a feeling that Warden dude's choice to not seal up the entrance will bite him in the ass later, be interesting.

In the books that gate entrance is a wail wood tree and only a sworn brother can open it by saying his vows then the mouth of the face opens to make the entrance.


Where did this come from? i dont recall that being the case from reading the books but maybe i missed it? From what i read there is no godswood at castle black so no heart tree (a Weirwood tree that has a face carved into the wood of the trunk). There is one a mile north of the Wall in the Haunted Forest where new recruits can take their vows.

Tho the magic thing from the show is pretty true to the books. Magic is referred to as "the higher mysteries". Apparently mages were a thing back in the day (way way back when the wall was created) but magic died when dragons died off. Now dragons are back magic is getting stronger

it's true.

The Black Gate is a hidden gate that allows passage to the other side of the Wall and is as old as the Wall itself. It is set deep in a wall of the well at the centre of the kitchens and is made of white weirwood with a face on it. The face is old, pale, shrunken, and wrinkled with white eyes. The door glows.

You are indeed correct that the secret gate is at the nightfort. i got mixed up as people were talking about john snow defending a gate against giants and then someone said something else about a gate so i just thought it was the same gate being discussed. They were different gates.

I really liked Oberyn and am rather disappointed he's not in it anymore. The way he died was gruesome to say the least. I was so keen to see the Mountain go down, alas not to be.

Now the trick question is, does Tyrion get to live on and avoid the executioner. I really like Tyrion and hope he lives on.

He got stabbed through the chest with a spear, pretty sure he is going down. Just Oberyn went down quicker.

What happens if both the Mountain and the Viper die in battle?
e.g. Ol Mr Mountain keels over as he goes up to high five Cersei?

Then what?

Is Tyrion considered redeemed or is it just 'keep picking people to battle until there's a clear and still living winner' type scenario?

At what point will Oberyn's bisexual lover hatef*** Cersei?

Is Sansa really bad ass now? Will we see her sitting on a little finger at some point?

Why doesn't Daenerys jump on her dragon (not a euphenism) and lay waste to some s***?

Man that was brutal. Great but brutal.

So where are we with the wildlings? There is a raiding party past the wall (Ygritte and co). But the main force is still behind the wall and thats what we will be seeing next episode?

It seems Sansa had stopped being a whiney little girl and has stepped up. She had the power to save Peter or see justice done. You see here in the new dress, I guess is symbolic of her new attitude. Its darker then what she would normally ware.

Haven't read the books but I'd say John snow will be dead pretty soon, to much of a hero as for Khaleesi and her army let's not be fools now even though it's huge, getting bigger and gathering more momentum every episode and let's not forget the dragons! It will be annihilated in less than a day...

http://www.forbes.com/sites/insertcoin/2014/06/06/the-curious-idea-to-put-game-of-thrones-in-theaters-each-week/

This would be an interesting idea.

Would love to see some of the massive eps like the last one and the red wedding with friends who haven't read the books. Pricing would be a major factor. It would be maybe best to buy a few episodes or something but then they would have to admit that you are pirating the rest to keep up.

A cool thing to do would be to offer a season of downloads to buy and include the major eps from each season available at your local theatre. Networks and media types need to shake things up if they want people to actually pay for their content.

Yeh just to recap, team:

This thread should be completely free of any information that is spoilerific and not contained in the TV show. So, talk about the history, setting and s*** like that is presumably fine, but discussion of future events is not. People who are only watching the show and are "up to date" may mouse over spoilers thinking that they are just about the TV show and get huge gigantic anus hurtage.

There's another thread for book s***. F*****g readers.

Not a bad episode. I would have liked to have seen some Tyrion stuff though.

I agree that the mid-combat hold-me-while-I-die thing seemed out of place. They did not even have any background sounds of the fighting while this was happening.

I don't really understand why Jon went north of the wall. Seems like a dumb idea, its not like 10k wildlings are just siting near the treeline or anything. Mance is going South and he seems pretty determined. It just doesn't make sense.

Yeah i gotta wonder what he hopes to achieve, its not like he has anything to offer them. Mance has white walkers to his back and the wall in front and of those two things its pretty clear he'd rather deal with the wall and the nights watch. I got the feeling though that some how John thinks if he kills Mance he can break up the wildlings. He did after all make the point that without Mance the wildlings will just break up and cease to be a problem.

It just seems to me to be him going and throwing himself away for nothing. I cant honestly see him being in a position to kill Mance.

Why send 1000s up a wall if they can be killed with one swift stroke ... which they found out they have the capabilities with that massive chain thing.

Even Jon Snow clearly explains it - "Mance was just testing our defences".


one giant gets in and thats it?!


Yep. Dozen of guys and a giant get killed and they set a mammoth on fire. Only that giant survived.


what were the rest of the 100,000 wildlings waiting for?


An order to attack. The attack on the wall seemed more like a diversion for the attack on the rear.

“It’s the best finale we’ve ever done, bar none,” Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss said in a statement. “The performances from our cast, the direction from Alex Graves, the VFX work, the new [music] cues from Ramin Djawadi—all of it came together in perhaps the finest hour we’ve produced. We’re immensely proud of ‘The Children.’ And a little intimidated by the episode, because now we have to get back to the business of season five and figure out a way to top it.”

The worst part about next week's episode is I know I'll be waiting another year until I see the next season. It'll be very interesting to see what is revealed and what they are saving for the next season too.

On the upside, this episode is supposed to be longer than normal, people are saying it'll be 66mins long. woo!

Youre right mate its not a spoiler because you'd have to really know the story to know what it means. I'd fork over a carton to anyone who could prove they didn't know the story and managed to guess that.

I knew what it meant when I saw it, but it's a stretch calling that a spoiler, since the only way that means anything is if you already understand what it's depicting. It'd be like calling a picture of a red tablecloth a spoiler for the Red Wedding.

Its just starting

8:12pm - Well f*** I didn't see that coming so early in the episode (stannis shows up)

8:37pm - They are certainly running through the characters, so far I have seen pretty much everyone who's anyone.

8:41pm - Children of the forest show up

8:52pm - Pod and Brienne run into Arya and the Hound, s*** gets messy. There aint going to be any winners here

9:04pm - Tywin really needs to learn when to shut up, but I guess its to late now

9:07pm - So begins Arya's real journey

Good episode. Poor old Hound. I guess Arya does have her own agenda.

I did not expect the stuff that Tyrion did, You could see Tywin try and weasel his way out of that situation. This works in Jamie and Cersi's favour that Tywin is dead, more time for incest. Poor old Varries, looks like he is going with Tyrion now.

Also, does anyone know what happened to that old wizard dude that Varries had brought over from one of the free cities? Never saw anything else with regards to that.

Wonder what Bran and Co are going to be doing next season. What exactly is going to happen to him.

Would be interesting to see what Stannis does now. Also the red woman was looking at John, she might have plans for him.

All in all, not a bad episode.

Arya has to be the unluckiest character in the show. She missed her mother by a few hundred yards, but of had she met up with her she could have ended up dead herself. She then misses her sister by again a few hundred yards, mind you ending up anywhere near little finger could been a problem. To top it all off though probably the only person that knows she's alive and actually wants to keep her safe she runs away from. Its almost like she is a ghost that with the exception of Brienne and Podrick no one even knows she is still out there. Her story for me is probably the most interesting.

I have to wonder, did she leave the hound to die because she wanted him to suffer or because she couldnt bring herself to finish him off? Its not like she has an issue with killing but at the same time it seems to me that her relationship with him wasnt as clear cut in the end.

I assume he meant the guy in the crate, the one that cut off Varys' junk when he was a kid and cast a spell with it.

I don't think he shows up again, it was mainly to serve that particular scene, but its probably safe to assume he died a horrible death or is still dying/being tortured down in a black cell somewhere.

Wtf was that tacked on zombie fight scene with Bran? And Jojen isn't sposed to die is he? And wtf with Varys leaving? And they completely left out the whole conversation Tyrion has with Jaime after he frees him about how that girl he fell in love with and married when he was younger wasn't really a whore and Tywin made him say that? I mean, that was the whole motivation for him going back to kill him in the first place (as well as being one of my favourite scenes and character moments in the whole series). Best part of the whole episode was Stannis riding in to save the day and that was over and done with in the first 10 minutes.

That was just all over the place, not sure I really liked where they went with all that. Disappointed.

He had ample reason to hate him, but not really to KILL him, didn't feel like he'd been pushed far enough in the show to me. Sure, seeing Shae in his bed gave him some motivation, but he had no real motivation to turn around and go back there in the first place. Its like, well I could go up the stairs and knock on this door and be free.... or turn around and go back for no reason at all.

I think youre right khel. The issue with tyrion and his first wife still looms pretty large in his mind particularly when it comes to how he sees his old man. Itd be easy to see how that info about what the real story was from jamie would have easily pushed tyrion to seek his dad out for some payback. My missus asked me what tyrion was doing in the hands chamber and i couldnt give her a good answer since we didnt get jamies story. I mean had tyrion not known that why wouldnt he have just legged it and escaped? Just seems a bit odd to me that there appeared to be nothing really motivating to go after tywin.

^ this.


Also, what in the actual f*** is with Stannis 'rocking up' north of the wall.
That right there is the most double-ewe tee eff moment of this season.

It literally makes zero sense... my memory may be a tad foggy, I *think* they mentioned it when Stannis credit bounced @ the Iron Bank...
I think my biggest problem with it is the mad levels of 'writer convenience' going on...
(Many hundred cavalry [being led by a broke king] turn up with no means to feed or protect themselves from the environment; at timing so convenient etc etc)

Alternatively, the red woman. (sure sure, 'the red woman foresaw it') It just seemed absurdly convenient.

They're not broke, Davos' speech convinced the Iron Bank to back Stannis.
If you need your memory jogged, there was that scene with the pirate telling a joke to some naked chicks in a bath. Davos comes in, pays the pirate, and tells him they're setting sail the next day.

I really liked that episode, was well laid out and closed off a lot of character plots. Sucks that Dance won't be in any more as I really love him as an actor, but his character was getting too greedy with his consistent "family is everything" attitude. I do agree that Stannis' apt timing was a bit odd, but hey at least they tied it up quickly.

Was actually happy to see Bran's story unfold in a more interesting way than Lord of the Rings 2.0 where all they did was walk. Quite good CGI and definitely made the North more scary. Eager to see how they go with the tree children wizard chicks.

Oh yeah Daenerys' bit was still crap, though I guess she'll just be the plot wedge that pushes the whole "dragons vs ice walkers" shtick.

They made a mistake cramming all of the end of book 3 into 10 episodes. That scene with Jamie saving Tyrion was a massive character build of both Jamie and Tyrion, especially Tyrion. To skip it was wrong, as Khel said, it had a direct bit to play in the death of both Tywin and Shae. Without it, Tyrion wouldn't have been angry enough to risk his escape just to have a chance of seeing his dad, not even sure what he was going to do.
They f***ed it.


Stannis does make sense. Stannis was boned where he was at Dragonstone, he couldn't launch an assault on Kings Landing vs Lannisters + Highgarden. Dorne has no reason to side with Stannis. Saving the North does two things, gives him a very strong practically unassailable position on the Wall, plus makes him look like the King who cares by saving the people. Not that the people know. It was an excellent strategic move, I'm also guessing strategically sound for Melisandre's fight against the Dark.

The timing was just complete luck, sometimes lucky s*** happens. Enough has happened in this series where you can't count on luck again and again. But every now and then it's OK.

I really hope they do more than 10 episodes next seasons, trying to force it all into 10 episodes forces them to take cuts, and as we've seen the cuts are sometimes work against the show. Others cuts and splices are cool, Brieane vs the Hound was a great splice. They even tricked the book readers a little there.

I didn't know what the hell Tyrion was doing sneaking about so yeah it did feel (to a non-book person) like it was a bit of a stretch.
Also the lack of security seemed odd. The fact that Tywin's chambers and privy were open and unguarded seemed unlikely but maybe that's how they roll.

Bran finally got to the magic faraway tree. Great. So maybe something will actually happen in that arc. OK so I'm guessing that since there is a dragon on the loose and he has been promised flying at some point he's gonna warg out on the dragon and burn up some three year olds of his very own.

Also Danerys! FFS! Ok we get it, you freed the slaves but are they really free or just uncooked BBQ and guys with Stockholm syndrome? That carry on has been happening for about three eps now and it's been a bit yawn to watch one of the hottest prudes on TV play Judge Judy and look perplexed. Get on a dragon and f*****g ride it. Preferably topless. I know, no nudity clause etc etc but seriously Danerys straddling a fire-breathing lizard with her tits bouncing around would enough incentive for 90% of the viewing public to throw down their torrents and hand over their credit cards. So she tied up her pets. Maybe if she spent some time with them instead of cooped up in the pyramid smiling through her teeth at her ungrateful subjects, they wouldn't be off stealing sheep and playing fricassee the goatherd.

Poor old Hound. I liked him. I have forgotten all the bad s*** he did and wanted him to punch Brienne off that cliff. But at the same time I kinda like Brienne as well. I like her moxy. I'd be a bit disappointed to see her whipped off the cliff by ze Hound, but i thought it was a nice touch that she copped a boot in the clacker. I liked the fight, and I secretly hoped they'd battle to the point of exhaustion, realise they were each other's equal and then team up and go on adventures together, but alas. Still, the Hound didn't actually die on screen, so there's a possibility that there really was a meister hiding behind the rock. But probably not.

And what about The Mountain. What is he going to turn into? A werewolf? A white-walkery type undead thing? Something that can satisfy Cersei? Is there such a beast?

Another year to wait? F*** it, I may as well just read the damn books.

Ok so in the books, its a massive secret passage that leads all over the place in the Tower of the Hand. He sneaks past a door that opens to 2 guards, and goes in the second which opens to the hearth of The Hands solar. Kills Shae than finds his old man on the s******. But the awesome bit they missed out on was a chat with Jaimie confessing about Tysha not being a whore, and she really loved him, then Tywin not remembering / caring about her when Tyrion asks. Then him asking where do whores go. Then the bolt thru the guts and he s****, followed by a comment about Tywin not s***ting gold like everyone believes.

Also, Season 4 produced some of the Hounds finest moments. I enjoyed that fight scene more than the head popping of episode 8. Part of me knows he's not coming back, but dayum, that takes the 'cool characters' toll of Season 4 to new heights... (at the rate we're going it'll be set in a day-care centre soon, everyone older than 3 will be dead...)

Have we heard from Edmure Tully or the Blackfish this season?

(to end my 'Stannis-saves-the-day' rant)
Ok, so 'strategically' it makes sense. It just proper shat me off that it occured as it did. I'll take your point Toll in that 'every now and then it's OK'.
(I'd be curious to know if it occurred similarly in the books.)

Pretty much you read it from Snows perspective, all you read about is Knights on horses flanking the Wildling Army yelling "Stannis Stannis Stannis' it really is quite epic and you sort of think, wow didn't see that coming.

stannis's attack was forecast a fair while back when melisandra says she has seen "a great battle in the north" involving stannis. it still felt really compressed though as in a prior ep they were talking to the iron bank. they completely left out davos talking to the northern lords & getting chucked in jail again... although that was pretty tedious so prolly why they left it out.

i agree with khel that leaving out jamie's betrayal of tyrion was a bit crap & also agree with cheez that the changing of tyrion's dialog after he kills tywin was also a bit of a bummer.

They most likely do know what is going on in the books, and are just trying to work around in with TV format. Its like the Harry Potter books to movies, things were cut and switched around which pissed me off but I sort of understood things couldn't be exactly the same. If it was 1:1 you'd get parts that just don't translate well from a book format to TV format, like character monologues or such.

Of course they know, however to ignore such a massive character driving moment for two of the shows most important characters seems... very odd indeed. For people who didn't read the books many say it is at odds for Tyrion to do what he did. Why be so dumb to risk his escape on a chance of seeing daddy, without a weapon mind you.

In the book he was very, very angry and with good reason. Plenty good reason to risk his escape. O well. A golden moment lost to TV.

Quick question: Is it safe to read the first 3 books without ruining the future TV series or do some things happen in the books that haven't happened in the show? At least, are the first 2 books fine?

3rd book was split in 2 for some region releases. End of Book 3 will have minor spoiler for what I see as opening of next season.

Yeah the first three books are safe. The minor spoiler Cheez refers to is awesome so don't let that stop you from reading through.
As a bonus glynd, you get to:
a) Act smug when people lose their s*** at each tv episode; and
b) Join us in the GoT for Real Men thread!

I'd say if you're going to read them, just read them all. The show is starting to diverge a bit from the books anyway, and due to the way the timeline works between books 3, 4, and 5 theres not really going to be a strict correlation anymore between which season is which book, its gonna be jumping all over the place (for example, Bran meeting the children of the forest and the guy inside the tree, happens in book 5).

definately read the books.

the tv show (while great, awesomely shot and well cast) barely scratches the surface of whats really going on.

i woudlnt even care if the books are going to ruin the show, you will get the same if not more enjoyment from teh books and then still a fair chunk of joy from watch the tv show even when you know whats going to happen (loosely)

Sweet, if it's just a minor for the start of the next season, I don't mind. As long as it's not major enough to really spoil it.
And yeah, really want to stay behind the TV show. I've watched every episode since day 1 with my bro so half the fun is having the mind blown after every episode.

Sweet, I'll read the first three books then. Would far rather do that than re-watch the first few seasons as I know they've left a few things out so it'll change things up. Cheers for that!

I just read that article on piracy and as per usual is was just the same tired old s***, oh noes you're all stealing. That f***** from foxtel has a nerve and he is singing the same retarded tune we heard from the music industry more than a decade ago, what a shock. If other businesses used the same model these f***heads do crime would be rampant, can you imagine going to the servo to fill your car up but not being able to do it unless you bought a package that included a car wash, 3 packets of smokes and a half dozen rolls of dunny paper? The only reason foxtel is even able to maintain a model like this is because they have absolutely zero serious competition, which of course is just the way old man Murdoch likes his business.

Its f*****g ridiculous and frankly anything anyone can do to f*** with that system is alright by me.

Then you get comments like this from that f***wit Brandis

"Australia, I am sorry to say, is the worst offender of any country in the world when it comes to piracy,"


Does this guy not get the fact that in this "digital" age Aussies have been getting f***ed at every turn by scumbag companies seeking to exploit the living s*** out of us because of our location. People are getting f***ed and they know it and rightfully they don't like it. The fact that this guy plays it off like its Australians that created this problem just goes to show how f*****g clueless he is.

I stopped reading the books because I pretty much want to preserve that sense of shock you get at events like the red wedding and Oberyn's death. I also don't want to be one of those sad cases that can't appreciate the show because it does something different to the books.

Anyway I thought the ending was pretty good, I especially liked the part with Arya and Dog the Bounty Hunter. It seemed to me she didn't kill him as a symbol that he was off her list and taking his money showed she had learnt from him. The fight leading up to it was awesome.

Tyrion's escape seemed really off, there was no lead up to it just big bro knocking on the door with a plan and an apparent alliance with Varys.

in a digital age there shouldn't be the restrictions place on direct supply that there currently are

if someone could work on a way to make it legal it would be great for all, well, not murdoch, but f*** that guy

here's a handy image that shows you which chapters have appeared on the show so far


Interesting... I still haven't read the latest book so I didn't quite realise how far into ADWD the show had ventured.
Looks like the Daenerys storyline might be on the sidelines for a while in season 5.

Book 4 and 5 happen at roughly the same time, it was originally meant to be one book but got too long, so half the characters are in book 4 and half are in book 5, so it'll likely be all over the place from here on out. And I guess the show creators know whats going to happen in book 6 so they might even start dipping into that. Doesn't look like that image includes the season finale though? Cos all that Bran stuff was from book 5 too.
