For all of you who have been worrying about a certain brother and sister, and if they will show up in the series, the answer is yes.
I am now.
Would it have killed them to throw in a little boiling oil? A scorpion or two? A catapult? A cow?
Where were the "three whores?"
The ships in the harbour. Not all were consumed by the fire. The other shore if it is close enough. Scorpions for the landing boats. I can't remember but doesn't Martin call out scorpions specifically?
Even the attack on the gate was a little tepid - one battering ram and three ladders. I really would have liked more planning strategy from both sides leading up to the battle. I think it would have added to the tension.
Agreed. Frankly, I'm just glad to have any sort of decent fantasy/swords and sorcery show on TV.
Also re: scorpions, Stannis's ships had some scorpions. Don't think they ever fired them though.
Nerd trivia: the green wildfire was from barium dissolved in whatever fuel they used. Exact right color for it. I'm betting it was a scale model fleet and a real (albeit small) explosion.
I called this last season sometime, there was no way they cut off his nose. It would have been way too hard to fake and didn't really add anything.
