    i was really not expecting renly to to be taken out like that. that ghost baby thing is fucked up

    the scene with arya and tywin was amazing, that girl has balls of steel. she is a great character.

    i find stannis to be a real PIA. i think of all those going for the throne i am rooting for robb or dany.

    Yeah. Jaimie, Cersei, Tywin, of course Tyrion all have good things about them. Marcella and Tommen are innocent enough. Makes you wonder how Joff got so wrong. Maybe the combination of bad parenting from a loveless marriage and the knowledge throughout his upbringing that he would grow up to rule the kingdom. I guess that could go to your head.

    In stitches, you don't have to spoil things that have already happened in the show, I don't think. The thread presumes that anyone who opens it has watched the latest episode. Spoilers are for things that haven't happened yet.

    i was wondering that. i prefer not to, but i wanted to be on the safe side after reading all the :slapfight: about people spoiling things.

    thanks for the green light man! i will leave spoilers behind for things on the show now.

    Agree with all of this. I think my few bits of sympathy toward Cersei are not because she's a fellow human being, but because she's so amazingly stupid.

    The SOFAI Wiki kinda goes into why Joff is so screwed up, but strangely, I don't remember reading anything about what the Wiki said in GOT or COK.

    edit: Sorry, did I just spoil something by mentioning the books?

    The people who write those wikis have read the books dozens of times and have read a shitload between the lines. Some of it is there and some of it is, IMO, strictly in their imaginations.

    I haven't read any of the books and I don't want to google this because if I do I'll read all the spoilers. But does this story eventually end or is the author still writing more books?

    He's still writing. Most recent book came out last year.

    By the way, why does the Mountain look so different this season compared to last? I can swear it;s a different actor... or did he just grow his hair out and shave the beard?

    Unfortunately I don't think Robb has any PoV chapters in any of the first couple books; you just hear about what he's doing through other characters. It makes it less likely for him to get screen time on the show.

    Yikes, that confused me too. Not a very good casting choice.

    Bets are GRRM dies before he finishes the series.

    What odds are you giving?

    Perhaps a better question, who would you want to finish the series were he to die?
