    Pretty much the case and I think we will see it far more often with combined events and condensed characters.
    For instance the shadow baby...if I am remembering the books correctly, we don't see the birth of the one that kills renly.
    The scene with Davos and the bars is him repeating his smuggling voyage to get her into the castle so that they can kill the guy who is still loyal to Renly and get the bastard kid.
    It was a little odd in the show that they included the bars since Renly is sleeping in a tent and it doesn't make sense that Davos would be bringing her into some random tunnel where he is surprised to find bars if he was just trying to get her to shore.

    One thing I'm glad they're keeping is how awesome of a person the Hound really is. Taking off his white cloak so Sansa can cover herself up? Like a god damned SIR.

    Yeah that was a little odd. They're conflating a few scenes now, which mostly works but that example was strange.
    Renly is just camped out in a tent, why would they need to smuggle anything, much less land in a cave? In the book they had to do that to get past the magical wards under Storms End. Not at all explained in the show
    . I do overall like how they're cutting stuff, throwing Arya straight up to being Tywin's cupbearer removes a whole shitload of unnecessary stuff.

    You have a link for this info?


    Very uncomfortable. But I thought he was going to tell the older whore to penetrate the younger whore with that scepter, so at least we didn't reach that level of uncomfortable.


    I don't think so. He's supposed to be a pretty, fawning, sycophant who compliments Dany and all the time and wants to marry her (even though he is a homo), but really all he wants is a dragon.


    lol.


    Yep. Was not a fan of the casting of Beric, but he went with some Winterfell men as another poster mentioned.

    Why lol? Jorah is da man. I am going to continue with the books in hopes that they develop his character more. I really hope he gets a POV

    Well, so far my read on him seems pretty good. He put the well being of his family (at least his wife) ahead of his honor, exact opposite of Stark. I hope he eventually mends ties w/ his father, if both survive long enough.

    One thing about this whole series that I really appreciate, compared to other fantasy works: Martin actually gives you some really good curveballs with the characters. A number of them make really interesting transformations.

    I'm not talking about Xaro, that casting choice is completely weird. I'm talking about the "humble merchant" and "trader of spices" who basically owns the entire scene.

    And your comments about Xaro should have been spoiler tagged.

    I liked Renly's comment to Stannis:"born amid smoke and salt? Are you a ham?"
