    How would you rate episode 209?

    You clearly haven't watched Game of Thrones, I agree.

    They all do.

    I considered voting 1 and coming up with a list of nine inconsequential changes from the novels to "justify" my vote just to make a point. But I ended up not bothering.

    I've always seen the Hound's story as kind of a parallel to Jaime's. Both men have defined themselves essentially by one characteristic--and then both have that self-image ripped away from them (Jaime is no longer a fearsome warrior, thr Hound no longer a fearless one). It's where they go from the point that they realize they have to redefine themselves where they diverge. Jaime becomes something better, the Hound something less.

    If you're doing what I think you're doing, I love it.

    I agree. Having said that, remember that feeling. That's how I've felt all along for those people who have been rating episodes this season below 7 when they have all been 8 or better. And that's a fact.

    I actually agree with a complaint from Ran for once :eek: I'm a little surprised Martin chose to have Stannis in the front of the battle--he always seemed more like a lead from behind where the leader can actually be of use kind of guy. Robert is the Baratheon who'd storm the walls personally, not Stannis.

    Pretty good episode, although I'm not really that into graphic fight scenes as much as most fantasy fans though.
  9. And it is unrealistic to expect they will not themselves be picked at.
  10. Best satirical post yet. Even better if you didn't realize it was satire when you posted it.
  11. What is with this "necessary" shit people keep throwing around? How can any change be neccesary, as in, it would be impossible for the show to exist if the change wasn't made? Because if that's not what you mean, then necessary is the wrong word and you need to go find the right one. As to whether the changes matter, they don't, practically to the point of that being an objective fact rather than a matter of opinion. Jon is still going to kill Qhorin to prove himself. Ygritte already spoke up on his behalf to the Lord of Bones. No meaningful change, except that Ygritte now has a better reason to speak up for him than she did in the book, which is a change for the BETTER.
  12. LOL at Stannis mode, but I'm right there with you. I usually just say "And how much less could you care?"
  13. There are any number of events which arguably started the war, or at least started the chain of events. My personal choice is Cersei's selfish and stupid refusal to bear at least one of Robert's biological children. She even tells Sansa that you can love a man's children without loving the man. Had she borne at least one actual Baratheron, it would have quelled any suspicion of twincest.
