    That bothered me too. I also don't like how they made Littlefinger seem cruel and malicious.

    Arya's sleeves really bother me.

    That was pretty weird too. Seemed out of the blue - yes I know littlefinger is a slimy opportunist but I thought he'd be a bit more clever. Clumsy writing I think.

    This was definitely implied in the book on multiple occasions

    Book spoiler, don't read TV only peeps!
    More than just implied, right? Isn't it necessary for creating the weird shadow baby that kills the guy at Storm's End?

    Why not discuss this in the book thread?

    I really wonder what the true extent of George R. R. Martin's involvement is. I don't think he would have changed the story to show Stannis having sex with the Red Priest, or that weird Littlefinger scene.

    On the other hand, I thought some of the changes they made in season 1 were great. Showing more of Visery's character gave a better sense of what the Targaryns use to be like and why Viserys was so bitter and angry all the time. They also added a scene where Robert slapped Cerise and they had a conversation about how their marriage never could have worked. I feel like Viserys anger and Robert/Cerise's marriage were two subjects that were not explained well in the first book, so I can see how Martin would have added more to those subjects for the show. Of course HBO would want him associated with the show to legitimize it, but I'd really like to know how much influence he has.

    Nah, I totally agree.

    just watched the second episode. as someone who hasnt read the books, the red presitess thing didnt bother me, but the cruelty of little finger i did not enjoy. seemed a bit of a departure, but that deperate men in desperate situations...

    Littlefinger has no morals. I could definitely see him doing something like that. What I objected to was him showing his cards to Cersei in episode 1, telling her he knows about her and Jaime. Littlefinger would never do something like that. If anything, he would have someone else do it. His plans are much larger scale than that.

    Because it's directly related to a comment someone made about the show?


    I believe that was in the book too. The conversation was added, and I think it was a good change. Humanized them a bit.

    good point. i was also surprised he revealed his hand so early, and with no protection around him.

    Yeah that was a real blunder did that happen in the book? It seemed pretty out of character to him.

    But i think what they were implying is that he loses it a bit when people bring up Lady Stark. Cersei prodded him on that and he got defensive about it. Perhaps his one weakness?
