    How would you rate episode 210?

    This was definitely the weakest episode so far, of both series. Not because they changed so much from the books - I don't particularly care about that - but because it was just bad. All the emotional bits were just ridiculous - Tyrion and Shae, Robb and Mrs Robb, Dany and Drogo. None of those scenes were really needed. Well, maybe the wedding scene was but it was crap anyway. I watched last series in more or less one go since I didn't even know it existed until it had almost finished airing. I was planning to do the same with this one since I really don't like having to wait between episodes, but curiousity got the better of me. Hopefully remembering this episode will make it easier to wait for the third series to finish before I start watching it.

    Yes. I'm really hoping they'll show Robb's head on Grey Wind's body, or Grey Wind's head on Robb's body. It's such a disturbing image, I don't see how they could not show it.
  3. The letter that Arya took would be from Roose, right? It would fit with Robb saying that he can't discuss troop movements with "Jeyne" since she might be a spy, but we have seen him discuss them freely with Roose.
  4. I don't understand the change from the three-eyed crow to the three-eyed raven. Do they think that TV viewers don't know that there are different types of corvids? The Fist is a lot more impressive than I imagined it. And how is Jon going to find the dragonglass weapons and bring them back to his friends if he leaves with Qhorin this early?

    I don't think there's any requirement for the viewers to understand everything right away just because it's TV. They even have Gendry saying that he doesn't know what the Brotherhood is, to drive home the point that the characters doesn't understand it either (yet).

    They're shopping it out to TV channels in every country in the civilised world, and then some. Many of which have commercial breaks.

    The first time I saw the Qarth scene I was a little annoyed that evidently the Qarthians (judging by the Thirteen, minus the savage from the Summer Isle) are a bunch of white dudes. After watching it again I've changed my mind, most of them look like they could pass for mediterraneans/middle easterners, except the speaker. But it's very odd how they seem to have no noticable non-Westerosi accent whatsoever when the only two people from Braavos we've seen, Syrio and Jaqen, have very obvious accents. And Braavos is a lot closer. Does everyone on Essos except the Braavosi and the Dothraki speak the Queen's English?

    That's what I thought as well.By the way, it was a sceptre, wasn't it? At least that's what I thought - it made it even more symbolic in my head, using a symbol of royalty and power to beat up prostitutes.
