    Sorry, didn't realize. Almost everything has been done to death on here. :(

    [Book Spoilers] EP108 Discussion Part 2

    Big difference between reading something and seeing it. We tend to be more tolerant of departures from the human norm on the printed page. The 'weird' camerawork was the point I was making - I doubt it was incompetence. In general I think they're softening the characters. After the departure of Ned viewers will need people to identify with - and cold-blooded ten year old murderers might not fit the bill.

    [Book Spoilers] EP108 Discussion Part 2

    Some posters have commented that the Arya/stableboy scene was rushed and poorly shot. I suspect that was by design - the idea being to create a confused moment when Arya's killing of the stableboy wasn't clearly accidental or deliberate, but open to interpretation. As I recall, in the book, Arya stabs the boy in a flash of anger and fear, but unquestionably deliberately. Maybe GRRM felt that tv viewers wouldn't accept a child killer. I thought this episode got Sansa's character back on track - she was much closer to the book's self-absorbed innocent. Her plea for her father's life is the first sympathetic moment she's had in the show.

    How Would You Rate Episode 107?

    I honestly don't think they included the scene for it's symbolic value. Some employees get 'danger money', the actress playing Roz should demand 'exposure money'. If she was remunerated per inch of skin per minute, she'd be one of the highest paid cast members. She must be a favourite of the costume department - "How will we dress her for the next scene?" "I've got a nice bracelet and a piece of string here." "Great!"
