[Book Spoilers] EP405 Discussion

Recommended Posts

I hope people understood that is what "nice" Cersei was all about - working the judges -- Mace's daughter, Tywin, Oberyn.

funny how book ready scream about the shows lack of subtlety out of one side of there mouths while missing the subtlety with the other side

I did like the touch of Sweetrobin merrily accepting his gift and then just as merrily tossing it out the Moon Door. It was an elegant way of showing how thoughtless and spoiled he is.

Also liked the mention of the chaos in Yunkai and Astapor, and of Cleon.

reminded me of a younger joffrey

Ya I thought it was pretty obvious what she was doing, and she wasn't just being "nice". She was in full game mode. Marg and Tywin's WTF faces seemed to go towards that too.

And Oberyn was just pensive and poetic, lol. He'll be sorely missed.

Makes me hopeful we may get a good amount of them cast for next season. I assumed they would probably conflate a few, but at least leaves the doors open for all of them if they want

Yeah. I was very shocked that they actually mentioned he had 8. Of course that doesn't mean they'll cast all 8 but I was expecting something more like saying he only has 3 and just leaving it at that.

Since change was made in the Loarch/ Locke character I would of liked to see him omitted. I thought he must be a vehicle for some important reveal. No just a little killin' I am just wishing more was put into other lines. Knowing from the books, there is a lot of stuff going on. Having a roll eat up valuable screen time that we can't get back at the end, erks me : }

In the books, it's mentioned that the Greatjon raided three of the Lannister gold mines. Nothing was ever mentioned of it again in the books. If they had worked that into the show, this might have made a little more sense.

That's going a bit far. He seemed quite sincere in loving the gift, he just didn't think about throwing it as a demonstration. I thought that was very believably childish.

Cute... "yeah, I'm only writing some poetry"...

Fighting with a longsword in an enclosed place against someone with two daggers is pretty difficult. But Snow recovered in the end.

Nicely foreshadowed a couple of episodes in the scene where Oberyn tells the Lannister guards that a longsword is a poor choice of weapon in close quarters.

[*]“Hounds chained up inside”!!!! -- umm, direwolves. Made me laugh.

Pretty sure he wasn't talking about the wolves, he was trying to steer the NW clear of Brans cabin so he could do his thing. Edited by White Harbors Wrath

Previews for next week showed Tywin & Company talking about Dany setting up shop as queen. Ser Jorah is still sending reports back to Kings Landing, I take it? Dany will find out around episode 9 or so, and that's when she'll banish him...

Did he toss it out the Moon Door in front of the person who had given him the gift because he's just that thoughtless and spoiled, or because he's genuinely disturbed? Hard to tell.

It was a great touch although keeping that Moon Door open would freak me the hell out.
