I for one, love coming to these boards to partake in a communal celebration at how AWESOME things are - and to note the things I might have missed upon my viewing (many GRRM fans seem very keen). I guess if there does come a time when I'm less than pleased, I will make it known. I am just glad I haven't had really any opportunity to do so, and barring any ridiculous and unforeseen deviation from what we've seen thus far (like making Brienne a dude playing a girl, as some have suggested), I think the future bodes well for my fangirl cheering and kool-aid drinking!
I wanted to note I really loved that Catelyn had her council in front of the heart tree. I think the things said in front of the heart trees will be incredibly important later on.
Speaking of important, someone said:
I think that in this context the hearttree stuff is significant, I also think that it's very significant that they retain Jorah's line about the Asshai Ghost Grass. I'm thinking that Dany will be circuiting the world and landing on the west coast of Westeros, not the east coast. We're going to see Asshai later, and it will be very important.
Agree on all things - the line from Jorah seemed an interesting choice, as there are so many things to discuss about the lands and the Dothraki - and I can only think it foretells something significant in the future. I noted that right away, and it was one of the only things I had to tell my daughter about in more detail (otherwise she pretty much GETS everything).
As far as the secret council in the godswood - very, very interesting. Same with the conversation between Jon and Jaime. All of these things may portend nothing - or they may be throwing us an early bone
Last note - I totally have the opening scene music stuck in my head and I'm so in love with it! Stirring, really.
