  1. Jojen Reed's fate? (ADWD Spoilers)

    It's been a bit since I've been on here. Glad somebody got the "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" reference. ;)
  2. How would you rate episode 210?

    A good article. Game of Thrones: Season 2 Review from IGN It's a review of the season as a whole, but this seemed the only thread it made sense to post it it.

    What does Belwas do that's so important? He's mostly comic relief. And, for the record, some of those you named being cut wouldn't surprise me, unless they can pussy-foot around the budget issue by holding their parts of the story back until later seasons when more established (and, likely, higher-paid) actors get iced, thereby freeing-up their salaries.

    I hear ya, dude. They wanted to get married, though. I'm not a Catholic, but, if I wanted to get married in a hurry and a Catholic Priest was game, I'd straight-up be gettin' married by a Catholic Priest. That was my take on it.

    I took to be more like a "We need to get married now. Let's go find a septon."

    We know the Reeds are being cast for next season. Why pay an actual salary to the actor who plays Ser Barristan for him to be in one scene, when they could just as easily pay him under a holding contract (less $$$) and then re-introduce him as a full cast member in Season 3? Also, I wouldn't be surprised if Belwas gets cut altogether?

    To those having issues over Robb marrying Susie SexyNurse in the light of the Seven: You need to remember that they're marrying somewhere near a war camp in the South. Northern marriage vows are said before a weirwood, of which there are none in the South.

  14. How would you rate episode 210?

    Because that's what it says to do in the Medieval Warfare 101 textbook, under the heading "How to Sack a City/Castle." You either occupy it or do your best to destroy it to deny it to others. It doesn't matter that there were no defenders -- you round-up the populace, take everything of value that can be carried, then either murder everybody outright or march them off toork your fields, kitchens, etc.. Peasants, sadly, were treated as chattel, one step above outright slaves. It's pretty obvious to me Ramsey's men did the sacking, either after letting the Ironborn besides Theon go free (as Robb commanded), or, more likely, double-crossing them after they opened the gates to surrender. I guess the Ironborn could have done it as a departing F U, but then where are Ramsey's 500 men who were previously besieging them? I think Ramsey did it with the intent that it be blamed on the Ironborn. I gave this episode a 9, mostly because I have largely separated book and show in my mind into 2 separate entities; not totally, mind you -- they still have to bring the story to the same place, but if they go a slightly different route to get there, I'm fine with that. The fact is that, as much as we book lovers b!tch about every little change, that criticism simply has no bearing on the average TV viewer. Media buzz, ratings, and critical assessments are all still very positive.

    Above, it was supposed to say "Xaro's xhiz-nit," not "Xaro's whiz-nit," but now the board issues won't let me edit it. Dratz! Also, two articles: THIS and THIS Enjoy!
