    Welcome. Make sure you stay out of the book forums, if you don't want the story ruined for you.

    Welcome! I advise staying out of all of the book forums (except the "still reading" ones) until you catch up on the series. You don't want anything ruined.

    It was a joke. I was trying to grasp at some logical explanation for why this one whore happens to be with EVERYONE who has a plot-centric story to tell. Damn, let's just send her to the Neck to meet with Howland Reed.

    They did Robb wonderfully; it just makes his coming fate that much worse. Loved the dragons, great ending; however, I think that the Mormont beyond the Wall speech was amazing, and would have made an even better ending. Ros? Really? CGI dragons, CGI 700 ft Wall, armies, but you decide to cut costs by reusing the same whore all over the damn kingdom?

    They could spring for some smoke shadows, if they overwrite lifting the Siege of Riverrun for another Ros scene.

    How many times in the past two months have they talked about the Starks and the Lannisters going to war? The lion and the wolf at each other's throats? Troops mobilizing, armies on the move, peace fleeing, war upon the realm... But it's not important and we shouldn't see any of it.

    Damn, and yet low-income workers are almost never unionized.

    That poster also used things like "rly," so I doubt they were going for a grammatically correct post (alas). However, I think the spelling of Jon's name (given that the derivation plays no role in ASoIaF) in an internet post is less important than the inclusion of the (unnecessary but character-building) detail of the sword in the TV series. So, rather than insulting the poster, I feel it's best to discuss the point. Throwing in "Huh, a bastard sword" would have been brief but keeping with the theme.

    Shakespeare was not going for an accurate depiction of history. HBO is going for an accurate depiction of the novel.

    It wasn't terrible, but no one else thought it was kind of slow paced? They focused on several insignificant parts while skipping over the more exciting bits. The end had a big emotional impact, yeah, but like 40% of the show was just... eh.
