  1. If they announce Talisa is pregnant in this episode only to have her miscarriage in the next, I don't see what the point is of bringing it in at all. There has to be something bigger in play.
  2. Oh, and - the Gendry reveal! I'm fine with it.
  3. I like Rose Leslie as Ygritte, but I think they're playing too much at her wit. It's starting to annoy me. And wth is this with Talisa being pregnant? What? I don't like her. I hope she is killed at the RW, but sadly I think not. She has to be a spy, right? I suspected it for some time, but... I'm starting to think she is for real now. Perhaps she's saying she's pregnant - but actually isn't? If she is a spy, she has to know by now that Robb will die? As always, I love Jaime and Brienne. Hm... right, I'm usually supportive of the torture scenes, but I'm starting to feel that they are taking too much space now with this episode.
  4. I absolutely hate re-casting of characters. I just don't buy the 'change the face, keep the character'. I'm glad they didn't even if they are growing fast. It doesn't matter much anyway, since the characters already are aged up. Sometimes children grow very fast over a short amount of time.
  5. I'm looking forward to see Sam the Slayer in action. I hope it will be soon.
  6. It doesn't take up a lot of time in every episode. It takes up some time in some episodes.
  7. I really liked this episode, but it wasn't as great as last week's. I always think this but... too little Jaime & Brienne! Although we will see a lot more of them next week. I was shocked to see Ros go the way she did, but it was definitely about time the non-reader viewers were reminded just how bad Joffrey is. It was nicely done though, with Littlefinger's monologue voicing over the montage. I liked Cersei's & Tyrion's little chat. I'm liking the few scenes between them that aren't venomous. They might have issues with one another, but sometimes they're just a sister and brother teaming up to find solutions to a common problem. They really only have each other to confide in about family matters, and it's nice to watch when they do. So, Arya and Melisandre will meet again, and some foreshadowing about the Faceless Men! It could be interpreted as her killing men with those eye colours as well, but that's less interesting as that could be anyone. They're such common colours. Loras was wonderfully awkward in his scene with Sansa. Clearly not comfortable at all, hehe. Oh and, Theon. As uncomfortable I am with watching his scenes with Ramsay, I do think they are necessary for non-reader viewers. If they aren't shown what horrors he lives through during this time, they won't understand or sympathize with him later on. In the books we were able to understand Theon's journey through his thoughts, but that's not possible on screen. I couldn't actually watch, but was Ramsay flaying his finger at the end? I thought it looked like it. Another hint...
  8. I took it as a gesture of anger, anger with Karstark to forcing his hand like that, by killing the Lannister boys. Also, despite all the battles he has been to and watching his father do it plenty times, it still must have been hard for him to do that to a man. Killing a man in a battle is different to beheading a man who doesn't defend himself. I took it as him grabbing his hand to confirm that it still was there and that he really had done just that. That he was losing his composure because he hated having had to do that, and that he was furious for it. Could definitely be interpreted your way as well though, obviously. That too makes sense.
  9. He did shy away now and then and reacted to it when the sword lit up initially though? I thought his fear for fire came through.
  10. Same here. I used to hate her, but a friend of mine has explained how he views her. After several discussions we had he had me reconsidering my hatred. Suffice to say, I no longer think of her as a supreme powerhungry bitch. More like a woman desperate for independence and considering power the best means of gaining it.
  11. Ah, I found it. I think I got it off his Wiki-page which I assume is correct. "At the age of fifteen, Jaime was knighted on the battlefield by Ser Arthur Dayne during the campaign against the Kingswood Brotherhood[9], during which he saved Lord Crakehall from Big Belly Ben and crossed swords with the psychotic Smiling Knight. On his return to King's Landing he stopped to visit his sister, from whom he had been separated for years. It was there that Cersei told him that Lord Tywin intended to marry him to Lysa Tully, second daughter of Lord Hoster Tully of Riverrun. Cersei suggested that Jaime become a member of the Kingsguard instead, replacing the recently deceased Ser Harlan Grandison, to be close to her and free himself of the unwanted marriage to Lysa. After a night of passionate sex he gave his consent to Cersei's plan and within a month she had orchestrated it.[9]"
  12. Perhaps not phrased like that, but I re-read certain Jaime chapters recently for reference in a discussion and think I read something along those lines. I may also have read something someone quoted from the books.
  13. Yeah, I don't think they actually read the entire thread while posting, hehe. And yes Versiroth > I feel that way sometimes too. It was nice discussing with you anyway, though!
  14. Cersei convinced him to join the Kingsguard to hinder him from getting married. He joined the Kingsguard because it would keep him close to her.
