    [Book Spoilers] Ep 202 Discussion

    My husband, who has never read the books, also questioned where Ghost was when Jon was whacked by Craster. I think Ghost will be in the conclusion of the scene next week. Over all I am very happy with the tv adaptation of the books, though I do wonder how anyone who hasn't read the books can keep up. There is just SO much going on, so many characters, so many plots... but I know several non-readers who are doing just fine, my husband included, though I have had to clarify things. I personally am not a purist. I don't mind the changes they make, as long as they try to keep true to the main theme. I do have to admit I was a little irritated when they killed Dany's Silver - that horse is still with her and is mentioned in at least every book the Dany has a POV. I was a little surprised at the blood-rider's death but I don't think it's that big of a deal to the story line. She has two others, anyway, and more protectors are coming. I honestly feel the whore scenes were added because hey - it's HBO and sex is kinda their thing - but the mouth wiping scene? Yeah, could have done without that. I talked this show up so much to a family member who is very intelligent, well-read and refined, and I can only imagine what he thought when he saw that, hahaha. All in all, this episode was OK. I love Tyrion and Cersai - I look forward to their scenes, something I don't remember doing in the books. I really don't like Stannis, at all. In the books he was so much more commanding, here he's just a man. Sam is perfect; he's making me like the character much more than I did in the books. Asha isn't at all how I imagined, but I'm waiting to see her more in action before coming to any conclusions. Dany kinda drives me a little nuts... I love her in the book, but her character on the show seems weak still, and when she lashes out or shows her anger it's not at all convincing. And the Dire wolves are amazing. Love, love, LOVE.

    How Would You Rate Episode 105?

    My favorite episode so far. I absolutely love Peter Dinklage's portrayal of Tyrion - seriously, he steals pretty much every scene he's in. I also was not expecting full-frontal Theon... Hello! I loved the scene between Loras and Renly; I still can't believe that after reading the books 3 or 4 times I never picked up that they were gay. I found that theory on the boards and on the last read through I finally caught the signs. I do think they are making Renly out to be a wuss, but I'm OK with it. Also, the scene between Cersei and Robert was excellent. The only thing I don't really care for is that they seem to be trying to make us sympathetic towards her, and I can't quite figure out why. But either way, great so far. The series gets better and better with each episode.
