    [TWoW Spoilers] Aeron I (Balticon)

    That sounds just like him to me. I imagine someone recorded it and then transcribed it later. Awesome chapter.

    [TWoW Spoilers] Aeron I (Balticon)

    There is a lot of Horror in ASoIaF. Have you not noticed? Also, if you would like to read a great Martin Horror story, check out Sandkings!

    Which new sample chapter do you want most?

    Give me a Cersei chapter. I am very interested to see how the trails are going. Plus, how is Kings Landing, and Cerise, handling the deaths of Kevan and Pycelle? I believe Cersei is currently our only eyes in Kings Landing!
  4. The night is full of terrors, and so is Ramsay's bedroom.
  5.   I agree. ASOIAF is partly a horror story, and Ramsay fits that bill. Without him being as awful as he is, we could not believe  the breaking of Theon; as well as,  the heroic act of Reek saving Jeyne. Yes, hinting at bestiality is horrific, but Martin is trying to be horrific. He is not writing a stand up happy fantasy book.

    How would you rate episode 410?

    I gave it a ten. Fact is they are going to over take the books, so I am fine that they are going to do it differently. So the book changes did not bother me. Every scene was great. I am sure they will have Lady Stone Heart next season. It was silly to pay the actress a seasons worth of pay for one scene. She will be back.
  7. In the books, Stannis does not come the first night either.
  8. It needed 10 more minutes, but Ygritte's death was well done. A shame Pyp went down. Janos hiding like a coward was great. It was the fastest 50 minutes of TV I have ever seen. I gave it a 9.0 because it should have been 60 minutes.
  9. The fight was great. I actually enjoy the Grey Wom/Messindei story line. It fleshes those characters out. Not sure how I feel about the Sansa changes. Maybe she is going to be a lot darker than I thought. Theon's story was done well/ Did not enjoy the beetle speech. So 7.5/10 for me, I will bump it to an 8.

    The future of Jaime and Brienne?

    The word she yelled out was, "Sword" which means she pledged Stoneheart that she would lead Jaime to her. (Stoneheart had given her the option of "noose" or "sword". What happens after that is anybodies guess.

    the last 10 minutes are great.

    How would you rate episode 407?

    Great show. Sansa's snow castle is one of my fave chapters in the books, and they did a great job with it. When Sansa is building Winterfell I cried a little (of course I cried more in the books where you get her inner thoughts). Dany was awesome, loved Arya and the Hound. Very good episode. 10 for me.

    How would you rate episode 404?

    She has thousands of people following her. It would only take one to plan the decoration of the flag, then find others to help create it. They just sacked a city, I am sure they have some cloth and thread. But they prob should of had a Betsy Ross moment and showed a lady making the flag with the Targ anthem in the background.

    Lol... I would assume that Dany has some weavers somewhere in her thousands of followers. They are all wearing clothes after all. I thought that banner looked awesome and dark especially right after the crucificixion of the good masters. Dany showing her dark side, love the Mother of Dragons! I did not enjoy Caster's Keep and Ghost somehow being captured by those weaklings. Ghost would tear those fools apart. It would have been better just to have him howling in the background and making the mutineers afraid to go outside or something. And then attacking with Summer when Jon shows up with his boys to lay the hammer down. Also Caster's keep seemed especially brutal and I am not sure that the show runners need to add more brutality than Martin already thought up. Martin is able to weave it into the story, the show runner's brutality tends to come across as just done for shock value. Reminded me of Jofferey killing Roz. Not needed. What is going on with the others? That is not how I pictured them in the novels at all. Creating others with human babies? Maybe this is where Martin is going, or maybe this was made for TV and will be different than the books. Otherwise good episode. I really like the Margaery/Tommen exchange even though not in the books. Sansa/Little finger is perfect and I am glad they are allowing Sophie to speak more and act more. Dany was great. Not sure how they are going to make Jon/Bran work. Will Bran convince Jon that the three eyed crow is more important than the heir of Winterfell? That is a tough sale may friends. 7 for me.

    How would you rate episode 403?

    Also, just because you realize that the books and the shows are different, does not mean that you have to like the changes. Especially when Jaime's arc changed so dramatically. Some book readers will like this change others will not.
  16. Carey Snow

    How would you rate episode 403?

    Agreed. To quote the book: "Hurry," she was whispering now, "quickly, quickly, now, do it now, do me now. Jaime Jaime Jaime. Her hands helped guide him. "Yes," Cersei said as he thrust, "my brother, sweet brother, yes like that, yes, I have you, you're home now, you're home." She kissed his ear and stroked his short bristly hair. Obviously the above was not how the show did it. Now, maybe the show is trying to go a different direction with Jaime and Cersei and maybe I will come to respect it. But if they try to continue Jaime on the same arc as in the books than they blew it because it simply will not work. The show Jaime is now clearly a rapist.

    How would you rate episode 403?

    1 They totally killed Jaime's arc by not having his sex scene with Cersei be consensual. Jaime is not a rapist and there was nothing in that scene that ever showed that Cersei consented like she clearly did in the books. I did not like the change for the Hound either. In the books, he does not harm any of the villagers and leaves peacefully with his fairly earned wages. In this episode he just seems like a bully, which he really is not. Maybe they are going to set Arya up to save him somehow. After the Cersei/Jaime scene, I just could not get into the Red Viper sex scene. And is Sam really going to send Gilly to Mole Town's brothel? He would never even consider that. Just really strange dark changes in this episode that I did not like, and I do not think they can save Jaime's arc now.

    [No Spoilers] EP402 Discussion

    With out spoilers (I hope) I have to apologize to this episode. I have Direct TV and for some reason it froze and then skipped over portions of the wedding and the beginning of the feast on the original airing. I had thought they left out Olenna greeting Sansa and straightening her hair and other conversations. After rewatching another showing, I see they kept that part in. I am no longer displeased with this episode and think it is great! I apologize for my monday post about the episode. Great job!

    How would you rate episode 308?

    Lol, well I imagine the Wildlings are on a forced march where as Gilly and Sam do not make very much progress each day.
  20. Agree about Theon and his manhood, but Talisa could have been lying to Robb about being pregnant. I have a feeling that they combined Jeyne Westerling from the Books with her mom and that Talisa is actually writing letters to Tywin and backstabbing Robb. No proof, just a hunch.
  21. Well, have to remember that they are trying to keep the non-readers up to speed and sometimes in a show like this it needs to be driven home. We need to know how much in love with Talisa Robb is, and the same with Jon/Ygritte for future events to have an emotional effect.
  22. I think they had to show that he lost his manhood. Now I expect the Theon scenes to die down, maybe one more in the last three shows.

    How would you rate episode 306?

    I really liked this episode. Of course, I really liked Jon and Ygritte's story in as SoS. Gave it a 9.
