    That's not exactly going to help non book readers is it. Anyone watching with a non reader who guessed the Bran Rickon ruse straight away?

    I guess he'll have a lot less screen time over the next few seasons anyway, doesn't get much book either.

    I think the nature of the story makes the show disjointed. There are so many characters all over the kingdom whose individual story lines don't interweave at the moment. It means they have to jump around from one scene to another to fit all the important characters in and it gives the show a slightly disjointed feel.

    My two-penneth worth. So it seems that season 2 is deviating from the books far more than season 1, I've had to try and detach the books from the show because the deviations do annoy me. The whores scene with Joffrey was so unnessecary to the story, we don't need to hate Joff more than we already do, it was gratuitous torture porn, I know the show is meant to be adult and have lots of sex which enhances the story and character development, but to me this scene wasn't needed. LF showing his emotions to Cat? Again not sure about that, but even more strange was his encounter with Margaery Tyrell, although I suppose it did show her scheming nature. I think they are just playing up LF's love for Cat so it's clear what his actions are at the end of ASOS. On a bright note I liked Robb's meeting with Jeyne, although I'm not sure why she lied about her identity, I thought she came across well and really got the better of him. The opening scene with the Lannister guardsmen was good, Grey Wind looked brilliant. Tyrion was fantastic as usual and his chastisement of Lancel was how I pictured it. Dany's speech was very well done also, Emilia Clarke did well there, she got the vunerability of Dany (and her Khalasar) across but showed her strength and persuasive ability too. Wasn't really sure about the Spice trader, sort of reminded me of Uncle Monty from Withnail and I. The shadow baby was fantastic CGI, the whole scene was really well done, it looked really good and came off perfectly. 10/10 for the graphics team, Mel and Davos there. All in all in was a good episode, which despite the plot deviations, came off as possibly the best the season.

    True but I was annoyed because the peasants in the book don't get enraged because of the killing of children?

    I assumed that was the reason for it but I thought it was pretty strange

    One thing I thought was odd, during the purge of Robert's bastards, they had a shot where there was a crowd trying to push through a barrier of guards, whilst a baby was carried across, I didn't really get why they had that.
