    Yep, we don't know this in the show yet.

    And as far as why Tyrion was cast aside, dunno, haven't started book 3 yet, but I'd imagine Cersei's behind it.

    Oh my god, how many times do I have to say I've only read the first two books lol.

    My initial comment was that I thought Rob wasn't a very fleshed out character, the response was, well because he never got a POV, and my reply was, well so far, neither did Jaime, et al. and they are pretty developed, heh.

    Same with Jaime and Cersei. Most of Robb's storyline happens offscreen (in the books).

    Except for selling out the gold cloaks and having them kill Ned, anyway.

    So they fucked up the HoTU big time, they fucked up Robbs wedding to a character who doesn't even exist, they fucked up the sacking of winterfell, and they fucked up Jon vs the half-hand. :slayer:
    I think I low-key hate the series now, but I love the novels too much to stop watching.

    I haven't watched season two yet, but I don't mind reading all the spoilers. Is anyone else like that? It really doesn't affect my enjoyment at all, and I do it all the time, like looking up movies before I watch them.

    finally put up with the BS that is hbogo, and finished the episode.

    good shit

    some comments:

    tyrion - sucks ass that he gets no credit for what he did, i dont blame him for whatever he does to his horrid family in the upcoming books/seasons.

    jaqen - awesome, WTF with his face changing, which one is real, or are neither real?

    theon/winterfell - pretty lame that the whole place got sacked, what a waste. once again that asshat first mate of his was seemingly behind it. i fucking hate that guy. i hope someone kills him soon in a very painful way.

    is theon dead, or just knocked out? that wasnt clear to me in the episode, my guess is knocked out.

    robbs wedding - no really, WHAT THE FUCK? zero context whatsoever, just a 30 second scene from nowhere. that was botched imo, and i didnt even read the books.

    danarys - BALLER as always. AND I FUCKING KNEW THAT SAFE WAS EMPTY, i guessed that way back a few times. lol at the black dudes face when he was busted, i hope he and that traitor whore enjoy some steamy sex before he eats her from starvation. looking forward to seeing danys progression.

    oh, i really enjoyed that magic dude getting burned, he was annoying and pompous as hell, glad hes dead.

    HoTU - didnt read books, but it was still kind of underwhelming. some neat magic, but all in all, pretty weak sauce. it did tho give the impression of either being large, or having the magical capability of appearing so, ill give it that much.

    jon snow - interesting. i know it looked like he killed the half hand out of anger from his remarks about his mom and dad, but my guess is the half hand knew that jon would never be able to muster the strength to kill him only as part of his strategy to gain acceptance with the wildings and to later fight and defeat them, so he said what he needed to inorder to get jon mad enough to do it. from jons face afterwards, it seems he gets it. just my take.

    zombies - cool, the dude with the crazy blue eyes on the horse, is he supposed to be someone famous that died beyond the wall? like neds bro or something?

    Rob's wedding to the westerling girl (that they seem to have replaced with this foreign floozy) is never in the book. He just comes back and is like "hey mom, I'm married"

    I dunno that the zombie is supposed to be someone famous...think he was just put in there to give us something to focus on.

    He's an Other. Mystical zombie overlord types. The others were just wights, resurrected corpses. The Others have some powers and are much harder to kill than the wights (who are still pretty boss).

    Faceless Men are assassins who take on different faces. No one really knows Jaqens true identity or motives, but some people have speculated.

    A minor character dies later on the series but a character matching his exact description appears later, many fans assume that Jaqen stole his face for some runknown reason.

    I feel like being a dick and spoiling everything. Red wedding , R+L=J, Dany's prophecies, Jon's nightwatch future, Sansas future, The role of the brotherhood (which isnt even in the series), Tyrions future,
    Cerseis future, Tywins future, Littlefingers plans, Stannis future. I'm fucking pissed. Their ass raping my shit. If you can't do it somewhat right then don't fucking do it at all. Fuck Weiss and Benioff.
