    There was always a sort of mystical element two his first two killings. His first killing (the guy falling off the wall) had a guy falling off the middle of a bridge with nobody in sight. The second killing had (a different victim IIRC) being mauled to death by his own trusty dog. Not necessarily magic, but it takes a little bit more than smearing peanut butter on your face to get your dog to murder you.


    Don't forget, there is a little more too his motivation. She "comforts" him and his damned Stark honor (especially after seeing what it meant for Ned to have fathered a bastard) pushed him to marry her. The moron could have just boned the chick and gone back to marry the Frey girl, but he didn't.

    I literally bumped into Tobin Bell at a pharmacy. Aplogized, but he looked at me with a blank expression on his face and turned away. Locked my doors that night.

    There used to be a person of extreme fame that lived nearby me. I mean, this guy literally impacted world culture, and every once in a while I would see him in a drug store or similar place. Very incongruous.

    I used to live down the street from Clyde "The Glyde" Drexler. Then moved, and lived not far from the wrestler, Booker T.

    Now I live near no one famous.

    I remember the first time Drexler spoke to me when I was a kid and went to get an autograph "Hey yo kid! Git yo hands off my Jag!"

    there's a bit in AFFC or ADWD where Arya hears the explanation of how to get someone's dog to attack. I think it was basilisk blood

    That's why the Talisa story doesn't make sense. He has less reason to worry about her honor than he does the daughter of nobleman from the Seven Kingdoms. In the book Robb is foolish, but he is driven by his sense of honor in the same way his father was. In the show, it seems like it's simply a flippant decision he makes, which is ridiculous considering how dangerous he should know it is. Also, in the book both that and Catelyn's release of Jaime are motivated by the devastating news about Bran and Rickon. I can't even fathom the reason that the show decided to throw all of this in before Cat and Robb find out about Stark boys. It makes both of them look at lot more foolish and weak.

    Not to mention, the TV show doesn't make any effort to make it seem like Bran and Rickon are actually dead. In the book, I feel like I thought they were dead for a *long* time....now they have revealed that they are alive (to the people who already didn't put together the stupid-obvious pieces) before even telling the rest of the world that they are dead. WTF was that shit where Theon was like "here is some gold for the father to pay for what we have done" while standing under the charred corpses...I thought that was enough to fill in all doubt (people assumed they were alive before but didn't know for sure). But then they pan the damn camera over to show the wildling girl sneaking her ass into the cellar in broad daylight.

    Some questionable writing going on here.

    Dude, he says what the problem is. He can and would kill Tywin but it could take time. A day, a week, a year. But Arya wants him dead NOW to prevent him attacking her brother or defending Kings landing so she passes on it.

    It's not magic, at least not "wave your arms and a bolt from the blue comes down" kind of magic.

    Nerd books? You just mark out over the show instead.

    I like the idea that the magic in GOT usually sucks and has horrible, taxing consequences on the people that try to use it. It's a lot better than the whole "wave a staff and my enemies are vanquished" stuff you so often see.

    I like magic in this series. So refreshing since magic in the fantasy genre has gotten more and more munchkin as time went on.
