    [Spoilers] EP606

    Is it ok to post this here? Someone screenshot-ed Bran's vision - terrific stuff - https://imgur.com/gallery/5WMdv/new
  4. I adored it. Loved Cold Hand's eyes ... loved Bran's visions - my god - Aerys II! Worth the whole episode for him and his crazy wildfire hamfisted future-proofing ... and Jamie sitting on the throne ... fanfrickentastic. And ending with BIG Drogon - all the Dothraki going nuts absolutely loving the calibre of Dany's new horse. Loved it Bran's vision makes me wonder about the end game, the last great battle - I always thought it would happen in Winterfell, but am wondering now that it might be KL. Boom!

    How have you started reading the aSoIaF books?

    I watched and enjoyed the tv series, but it wasn't until the very end of Season 2, when Sam's beyond the Wall, and That White Walker looks him in the eyes, with no care & no empathy - at that moment I said out loud "I. Gotta. Read. These. Books". And I did - devoured them. Read them constantly, so much so that my wrists/arm muscles hurt. And this via my e-reader! I'm currently, finally, re-reading GoT, and loving all of the foreshadowing, early characterisation, the slow-mo car-crash of how the shizzle is about to hit the fan. I love the books so much more than the tv series, which often drives me around the bend with what it reinterprets, leaves out, but in my rational moments I accept it is its own thing, and stands alone. And really, I'd watch anything Charles Dance, Jonathan Pryce & a bunch of brilliant character actors are in.
