  1. I'm actually seeing Bloodraven. Notice that there's a ghostly face with something coming into his open mouth and out of his left eye socket. Or, it could just be an Other.

    not only does Jojen have greensight but he's also on a mission and was probably prepared, which encompasses getting to know about the starks' background both through his sight and through howland reed.

    I'm late for the discussion so I'll just share that I'm kinda satisfied that I called it that they were going to fuse other sorcerer/seer types into melisandre. I remember way back when they were shooting arya and mel's scene and some pictures got out (or word got out) and everyone was confused as to how they'd ever meet. I think it was a simple, elegant move on their part. also, there's plenty of time for gendry to return to the other branch of the bwb and meet dear stoneheart.

    can't help it; bit of fangirling: holy hotness in this series... nikolaj, iain (and bean too), and now mcginley (anguy), kaye (thoros; yes, I think he's sexy), dormer (beric; agree with jeyne poole) and even our tormund, kristofer hivju. yeah, kit who? don't get me wrong, love book jon snow and sure am going to love series snow more and more, but as far as sexiness goes... give me the rugged ones.

    oh, and I agree that there is no other way to read Gendry's "m'lady" line than that she'd be his liege, his social superior. it's also quite an important device for her to realize her isolation and the bullshit of social rules more fully building up to added motivation for her embracing the house of b&w as the only viable choice for the moment. they are doing as good a job as they can with the limited time available in the series in terms of believability, by the way. I applaud that.

    I really do think they're actually merging Shireen and Patchface. A character such as Patches wouldn't translate well into screen, I think, but it makes perfect sense for an unfortunate child such as Shireen to have an amped up creepy factor. I wonder: if Patches is indeed going to have greater importance later on in the books (hinted at by Mel's vision etc) then Shireen may do to in the series, which pleases me. I think I generally like the merging of characters as it's nice to get to see more substantial players and cogs in the tv version. Someone mentioned Helena Bonham-Carter upthread... wow, she would've been great with ears and mustache but that would make it all too much if they kept the foetus-preserves, which, I agree, will substitute the leeches in Mel's bonfire. Now I have to go and re-watch the entire thing especially because my grandmother was around during the cave scene. Yup. I had to watch this ep at my parents' with my nana around, and she's not one for this kind of show. It was distracting and I missed out on a few things.

    Great catch, Blisscraft! Despite the fact that I am capable of reading Joyce and getting some references from his writing, I cannot do the same as effectively with GRRM. I wonder what that says about me or about both writers. I suppose GRRM is very good at subtlety or at writing in such a way that we find references he did not intend to plant there. Haha! In any case... Thanks, this is my nickname in pretty much everything on the internet. I played Anna Livia twice on Bloomsday celebrations and grew to like the character and polyssemy surrounding it, so I came up with a simplified version of the name that is more congenial especially in my native language.

    Yup, I got the same impression! I will actually pay more attention on my current re-read for any other Joyce nods.
