  1. The last episode of the season is titled "Valar Morghulis." I don't think Jaqen is done just yet. I liked Arya's scenes with Tywin, and I didn't mind the changes in her storyline until we get to Amory Lorch's over the top death scene. I'm not happy about them cutting out Weasel soup, but I understand why they cut it. The fact that Roose Bolton and Vargo Hoat held Harrenhal at some point in the books are ultimately meaningless to the final outcome of the story, so they just skip over it to Clegane having it from then on. I still think/hope they'll have Vargo Hoat next season. He and the Bloody Mummers just seem too important to be done away with.
  2. If anything Walder Frey would be even more slighted that Robb married some foreign girl than if he'd married Lannister bannermen. At least Jeyne Westerling was a Westerosi highborn. Even more-so, they make Talisa sound like she comes from a merchant's family. From LF's mention of the Gulltown Arryns who married into merchant families in Feast, it seems like merchants are looked down upon by Westerosi. Plus, she's a foreigner on top of that. Filch Walder Frey has far more reasons to be pissed at Robb than book Walder Frey.
  3. I was not happy with the Robb/Jeyne romance, and was pissed that there was no Weasel soup. Maybe Jaqen, Rorge, and Biter will be fleeing with them for a time (I don't think Jaqen killed all those guards by himself) giving them a chance for a final exchange, a coin, and perhaps a face change (how will they make that look convincing with their budget, tho?) I was glad they finally made good use of Ros as a stand-in for Alyaya I noticed this is the third time in the show they've used material from A Dance with Dragons for their script 7/10 for me Hopefully next week's episode will be better. Martin is scripting it
  4. Stannis humor

    Still love- Davos- Lord Celtigar called it admirable Stannis- Had I shown him the contents of my privy, he would have called that admirable as well
  5. What Role Will Edric Dayne Play?

    This is a semi crackpot theory, but I think he will become King. I think the Daynes have Targaryen-esque features due to Targaryen ancestry.
  6. Best Hand of the King?

    Septon Barth sounds like the best hand. He was hand under King Jaeharys I. That was when all the roads were built and the 7 Kingdoms became dependent on a the capital politically and economically, allowing the Targs to stay in power even after their dragons were gone
  7. The Winds of Winter is Going to be a BLOODBATH

  8. [twow Spoilers] Arianne II, Part 2

    I think I remember Tommen almost telling Jaime at Tywin's funeral that he was molested by Joffrey. Its also just speculation tho, but I wouldn't put something like that past Joff any more than I would Euron.
  9. References and Homages

    When I had to read that for my history of Africa class, I thought of Tywin as well. Things about his life resemble Edward Longshanks and John of Gaunt a little, but I feel like Okonkwo was in there as well. Sorry for the double post.
  10. References and Homages

    That was his name? I remembered the last name. When I got to that chapter, I remember thinking, "You're a slacker, McFly!" Now I wonder if that was intentional. Edit: Darn, I checked, it was Gerold Strickland. I still hope that was where he got it from tho. Love that movie.
  11. Since he was first described in the CoK prologue. Whether its Doakes from Dexter, Bullock from Batman the Animated Series, or many of Tommy Lee Jones roles, the blunt, uncouth, but to the point authoritarian character resonates with me for some reason.
  12. References and Homages

    Somebody got this one already. Still agree w/ it tho.
  13. References and Homages

    To add on to that, Castamere might be named after Castamir the Usurper, the Gondorian rebel slain in the Gondor civil war. Heh, Martin loved him some Tolkien. Tho yeah, when I read about Simon de Montfort and Edward Longshanks, I immediately thought Tywin and Reynes and Tarbecks.
  14. References and Homages

    I think I found another Tolkien reference, tho I'm not 100% sure. The d-bag singer Daeron has the same name as the d-bag singer Daeron from the tale of Beren and Luthien, who snitches on Beren to Thingol when he enters Doriath, then snitches on Luthien when she wants to go after Beren after Sauron has captured him. Could be a coincidence, tho. From an earlier post, coolbeans on Pyp=Pippin. Can't believe I missed that what with Sam.
  15. Fantasy and SF Recommendations: Series

    I can't believe no one's mention Monarchies of God by Paul Kearny. Interesting, if not brief gunpowder fantasy based off of 15th century Europe. It has a good ending, even if it seems a little rushed. If u don't want to take my word for it, I was recommended this series by Ran/Adam Whitehead.
