I loved Tywin showing Joffrey up. LOVED. As soon as he started his strut up those stairs toward the throne, I was like AWWWWW ****.
 
I'd love if the "You want her? Go get her." and the following Jaime's "I only rescue maidens" line when he actually rescue Brienne stayed but otherwise, this was another solid episode.

No, because unlike Count Dooku, Tywin doesn't completely f**king suck.

True. I was referring more to the way they speak and sound, I guess.

Am I the only one who refuses to forgive Jamie for ****ing his sister, killing his cousin and pushing Bran out of the tower?!

Nope. I still think he's deserved everything that's happened to him, even though I've started empathising and warming up to him.

lol I loved the Sansa/Margaery scene.

Margaery: *blathering on about the difficulties of pleasing women sexually*
Sansa: How do you know all this? Did your mother teach you?
Margaery: .... yes, my mother taught me.

You know nothing, Sansa Stark. :o

Best Youtube comment I've ever seen:
Quote:
My god, the difference in manliness between these two is so palpable. I swear I think Tywin could beat Joffrey to death with his dick alone.

QFT. That's pure gold right there. :applaud
 
I don't often say this, but Joffrey does kind of have a point.

The last dragon had a skull the size of an apple (result of inbreeding?), but these dragons are unrelated.
 
Question for the book-readers:

[BLACKOUT]It is now 100% that the RED WEDDING will be this season, yes? I'm asking because they are clearly building the Frey wedding. That is the Red Wedding, right? [/BLACKOUT]

Dragons were kept in the Dragonpit. They didn't live in their natural habitat so wouldn't grow to full size. Also, it's speculated that Maesters had intentionally malnourished them over the years, each generation being smaller and weaker than the last.

[blackout]Yes, Episode 9: Rains of Castamere. Continuing the tradition of episode 9 being a major event.[/blackout]

Si. I expect it will be the season finale.
 
It's been confirmed for Episode 9.
 
I'm curious though, cause I read an interview with Martin and he was talking about meeting the actors playing the parts vs writing the books and keeping focus. He mentioned that there's characters who died in the books that will stay alive in the show but didn't mention who. Could be a spoiler or maybe it's all semantics.

That is interesting. I cannot imagine who that might be. [blackout]Ygritte perhaps?[/blackout]

They already reversed Gendry basically being written out of the main story like he was in the books with Melisandre claiming him. I have similar feeling that a certain character who was written out of book 3 will stick around in some capacity longer after next season. Just a hunch.
 
Just when you thought Theon had suffered enough.....

The bear scene was very well shot.

Is there a link Of GRR actually saying this? I'm interested as well.
 
My kind of understanding of Dragons are

There are dragons elsewhere in the world, possibly still thriving and these eggs came from some far off land..clearly there are unexplored/lost/ and dangerous parts of the world where Westerosi can't just go to (Such as Valyria).

but i may be off on this?
 
As far as I know, it's [blackout]just those three. Illyrio gave Dani those eggs believing they'd long since petrified, and it was only the blood magic and bonfire that got them to hatch. No mention of other dragons living has been in the series so far.[/blackout]

I'm thinking back to the movie 'Big Fish' when Edward learns how goldfish in an open environment can grow up to quadruple the size of fish stuck in bowls. I wonder if dragons are the same way. If so, Dany's gonna have a set of major monsters by the time she makes it to Westeros. :woot:

Book spoilers (nothing very huge, though)
There are many things not found in Westeros that pop up elsewhere in GRRM's world, but (so far) Dany's dragons are the only ones. The books say as much. Also, Valyria itself is a ruin now. Destroyed by a volcano, I believe (although the word "volcano" is never used). There are plenty of other places, though.
 
Seriously, does anyone have a link to an actual interview of GRR saying they plan onnleaving some characters that died in the books alive? That has me very intrigued.

I believe the quote might have been more along the lines of "characters that go away in the books may stick around in the show". I don't think he actually mentioned death.

I'm thinking he's referring to Bronn and Osha. They've both already had significantly larger parts in the show. I know GRR actually mentioned that he may write Osha differently in the future because of how the character has developed in the show.

Oh okay. That would make sense. They're already doing that now with Theon. We never actually saw what happened to him in the books. Dude just disappeared for a while.
