1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Shit, David Eddings might have been lame, but at least his stories had an ending.

    When I was in junior high it was a popular choice as a false cover for porn mags.

    Thanks. I couldn't handle the tiny, long, non-justified lines....so I made an improved version if anybody wants it.
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/9bzfitg9h9mzh2e/Sandkings.pdf

    Print it double sided (short edge) and staple in the middle for a nice little booklet. If you don't make it a booklet...its going to be pretty hard to read since the pages are all out of order.

    Plan to read it on the plane tomorrow and then leave it in the airport for someone else to read.

    They'd have plenty of time if they hadn't had all that Bran BS storyline earlier and this was ep 8 instead of 9. But, I don't really see there as too much left-

    Dany-
    No need for any appearance

    Jon Snow
    Parlay with Mance
    Stannis arrives
    Election can be next season b/c Stannis will stay at the wall a few episodes

    Sansa-
    No need for any appearance

    Arya-
    Probably won't leave Sandor until next season. Which works out fine.

    Should be the end of the episode, consecutive, probably the last quarter or even half:
    Tyrion-
    Visit from gaoler.
    Jaime conversation about Tysha.
    And Moonboy for all I know.
    For hands of gold are always cold, but a woman's hands are warm.
    Visits the privy
    Wherever whores go!
    Thrum
    Fade to Rains of Castamere

    well, sometimes, even for me, life outside the internet takes precedence.

    that being said, i did not find the whole head popping thing to be all that gruesome in last episode. it was a rough way to go, but i think GoT has shown more graphic violence than that.

    this episode was kinda just ok for me, i guess it was important and all, but not all that entertaining to me aside from the wooly mammoth stepping on the dude and john snow busting that guys head with the hammer.

    and for all those who get mad when the story line is "unrealistic," after john had his face planted into that iron thing, he should he been donesky.

    dont really see the need for the new thread btw, but if folks want one, why not i guess.

    speaking of, what is going to happen with john and mance? TELL ME NAOW!!!!

    Good episode as long as you weren't anticipating a switch over to King's Landing.

    Action pretty much from start to finish. I enjoyed it. Reminded me a lot of the Blackwater episode from season two.

    That chain-anchor on The Wall was a neat surprise.

    Another very good episode.

    The conversation between Jon and Sam and Meister and Sam at the beginning reminded me of many similar men talks.

    Sam became much more of a man in this episode.

    Very sad that they killed Igritte. The way Jon looked at her when she pointed her arrow at him. Cliche but still dramatic.

    Not sure what they gonna serve for the last episode. I hope no more Danny;
