Why introduce the prominent Merman pin on the one fat bearded guy at the Red Wedding if Wyman Manderley wasn't going to show up at the Bolton/Stark wedding. I mean, you've got the new Warden of the North's son marrying the daughter of the hereditary Warden and sister of the late King in the North and there are no Freys (other than Fat Walda) much less any Northern Lords.
That oxblood color looks great.
Many great houses had Valaryan steel blades, but many other Houses did/do too (there's on in the Vale owned by a Lord who likes young boys and Mace Tarly (Samwell's father has one as well). Most were lost or destroyed overtime. The ability to make them was lost when magic left the world. Tywin could only have Ice remade because magic has returned - related to the birth of the dragons.Great Houses/Kingdoms:Targaryen - Dragonstone and Crownlands (not a Kingdom of its...
To paraphrase Sandor Clegane - Bugger on your Ser. I'm no knight. I like dogs better than knights.
My experience is 4-5 days. But, frequently 2 of those days are label created, awaiting pickup.
Wights can't be killed with dragon glass. They are frozen meat and the dragon glass breaks against their flesh and bone. Fire is the most effective. because they are undead it's somewhat unclear what happens when you hack them to pieces. They seem to continue to fight short of limbs. I can't recall whether we've seen a headless body continue to attack. Conventional weapons work. You do not need Valaryan steel.
White Walker are the creatures who lead the dead. They are some unknown race and live in the land always winter. Little and less is known about them, other than dragon glass and Valaryan Steel (dragon steel) can kill them. They convert the dead into undead and make them their minions. The wights are the zombie like undead who have been converted by the White Walkers. Wights can be killed by fire. Presumably, White Walkers can too, but it's unconfirmed.
First great episode this season. First good one for that matter. Cersei pretty much stuck to the book. Arya was Cat of the Canals, which was awesome. Jon was off the page, but it was great and I wish the episode had been named Patchface. It was like everything he ever said, oh, oh, I know. The shadows come to dance, my lord, dance my lord, dance my lord. The shadows come to stay, my lord, stay my lord, stay my lord. In the dark the dead are dancing. I know, I know,...
In the books the Kings Guard shows up at the Sept of Balor and is not admitted. There's a bit of discussion between Cersei and the chief of the watch for the Faith. She demands to see the High Septon. He will only meet within the Sept. She is so intent on seeing him she tells the Kings Guard to stay outside. She essentially walked into a trap because of her own impatience. Don't know why they cut that out. It's also the second or third time she visits the Sept so...
She's the one character in the books who, when given her voice through POV chapters, I liked even less. Some never connected with me at all- Damphair, Victarion (although his chapters were funny), Areo Hotah, Quentin Martell. Some non-POV characters are among my favorites - Sandor, Wyman Manderley, Queen of Thorns. I even have a little empathy for Sansa, although I don't like her. But, Cersei, I disliked and once she became a POV, I liked her less.
