    Does anyone read the comics? Really enjoying them so far, and it's good to see how the characters are imagined to look without the constraints of having to get real world actors.

    I didn't know they started those up again. I had assumed it wasn't successful enough so they ended it after they were done adapting the first book but it's nice to see they've started A Clash of Kings. Better late than never, I guess.

    I've only just started. Is that where they're up to in relation to the books? I really hope they get to the end as I'm loving them.

    I saw that they just released the first of their A Clash of Kings adaptation this summer after a three year break since they finished A Game of Thrones.

    Great that they're continuing and it's a shame they had to stop at all. I'm reading them right now while posting.

    I know the women of bear island are trained to fight in the books, because they had to protect their shores from raiders while the men were away hunting.

    I know Maege and Dacey (likely the other daughters except for Lyanna as well) all marched with Robb, but do bear island common women usually fight in wars (Robb's or otherwise) or do they stick to defending bear island?

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's just an extra.

    Whether it's her or not...It's fun (and creepy) as hell to imagine that it is.

    It IS Lady Stoneheart. She stopped by Winterfell to drop a deuce... revenge for the deuce D&D dropped on her character.

    They aren't doing Lady Stoneheart on this show guys. If they were, we would've seen her by now.

    If that's what they were going for I suppose it's a nice, if not fairly cringey, nod. Any shout outs these guys do towards Lady Stoneheart aren't really welcome as far as I'm concerned.

    Was just thinking about Mel and her purpose now in the show with the other priests. Was thinking that they might, when things are looking like going absolutely utterly bleak, that they might come across a couple of stone dragons.

    He seems a bit distracted by these other projects. Maybe never. :(
