    10! It was awesome Tyrion's brightest moments .. a petty he'll never be as good as this again >(! Varys X Tyrion /o\ SansaX Cersei! Cersei and Tommen /o\! All was awesome! The only thing i realy missed was Clegane kissing Sansa.

    Everything is great but the storie is going way different than the books, Jaime escaping, Jon not geting the order to go with the wildlings (what will make him a turncloack), Dany getting her dragons stolen, the game of thrones in quarth... Some changes are good Jaime was the one that did it better than in the books, as we know the warfare is always the worse parts of the book (not that they are so bad) , they lack the cunning that George has in his political plots and games... in the war is always someone thinking "Ok whe have to do X thing and we won" If the POV got that X, he wins that simple. Anyway I really liked Rob's explanation to keep Jaime close (not in Riverrum as in the books) so that Tywin couldn't make the castelars give Jaime.. Catelyn wont apear as dumb as she was in the book by realeasing Jaime, First Rob let him go away by his fingers, so he cant say it was "his prisioner". Second if she left Jaime in Jail, he would be dead by the end of the night.. best to hope to get her girls back. Arya / Tywin was a great change also.. Tywin will be missed and both are building up in these talks. Jon's and Daenery's plot are the ones in danger... and bran's as the Reeds will not go with him to the wall.

    All Kings are thieves and Conquerors, and yet Robb was chosen.. so he is as legit as it gets. We see thing in a different perspective and "we can't posibly think of being ruled by a king". It is a cultural thing, like "I would not wear or made my woman/daughter wear a burka" , Also oriental people have others views we western have a concept that "The customer is always right", so If i made a request in a restaurant i should receive what I asked for. Oriental people don't see this way, they see that "The chef vows for his dish, and wouldn't let anyone changed as it pleased, and possibly ruin the dish, as the fault would fall in him". All this views aren't wrong, they're just foregin for us.. If you lived in somewere else you'd have different ideas, like think it is ok to be ruled by a king. I think independent of the regime there are social relations that will always appear, the work and the power of ruling will be divided also in similar fashion. George Martin shows this a bit, by the eyes of Tyrion, as Tyrion cross the sea he is eventualy sold as a slave, and he than states that "The slaves live better lives than the peasent in Westeros" Another view, is the obvious contrast between the Westerosi people and the free folk beyond the wall (Wildlings). For the free folk, their freedom has a obivous value that the westerosi can't grasp.. for the westerosi the confort of "The south of the wall" is way better than the "freedom of the north". Worse (or better) the Westerosi people don't think they're bound, they think themselves free, and they see the "freedom" of the Wildlings a frightfull thing that bring chaos and destruction, they clam the "laws" as we do too (we western). We want the law, we want to "lose the freedom to steal, abduct and rape", because we fear that this is done to us. So the Free folk is freer than Westerosi, that are Freer than the Slavers from Maareen.... and yet how much more free you get, the harder your life get, because you yourself have to protect you and those you love, and no one will anwser for "crimes" made. It is a trade off. So yes, it is possible to live "well" in a monarchy system , as we live in a republic... there will be trade offs, that I myself can't make but only because I lived all my life in a republic, If I was born in a monarchy I would probably strugle the same way about "being more free in a republic", and maybe I would not want it.

    True enough anybody can help Bran till the wall, beyond that Coldhands can carry Bran himself if need to. I guess it would be better if Osha was gone with Bran and Maester with rickon, as Osha has information beyond the wall and skills to survive there, the Maester will be usefull in theaching Rickon, and carying for him in the Kingdom... even though in the books Osha realy gone with Rickon, she soon disapeared and now he is with Davos.. so I think it's possible to change who goes with Bran.

    How Bran is going beyond the wall by himself (and hordor?). It was a bit strange that they left the reeds out.. even though I hate Jojen, and I think things will run out better without him there is still the problem that Osha will go with rickon and bran would go with the reeds.. so what now?
  7. I think there were good chances in the series from the book, if you think that there are too much things in the books that aren't that important like Arya running away for a long time before being caught... in the book it was amusing because we could see what she was thinking, as we can't see that in the series, is best to be left out and go straight to what is what. I liked also that some characters are more straight in what they want.. i never suspected Ser Loras Affair with Ranley, I only asumed that thing he had with his sister.
