mayIFark: Well, at least it comes with a build-in steak maker.

BTW, when are they gonna show the older daughter of Winterfall king naked? If I remember correctly, she is the only grownup girl in the cast who was gone naked yet.


The actress is only like 16 IRL, that's NOT going to happen.

In the books they both get naked, Tyrion then feels like a complete perv, and tells her to put her nightgown on.

So it's been a long time Since I red the books, and never did read Dance with Dragons but without spoiling it for anyone else, can someone confirm for me that the Subplots with Gendry and the Red Witch and the one with Theon Greyjoy are new to the series 'cause I don't rememeber them at all in the books

KellyX: The All-Powerful Atheismo: Clash City Farker: It didn't suck. I thought people were gonna start dyin' right there after the wedding.

And then nothing farking happened.

I don't suspect Joffery has more more episodes to go though... I'm looking forward to the midget jousting... When you see that, you know what's next...


My theory is that both that, and the Red Wedding will occur in the same episode in the season finale and will be filmed as if they are essentially happening at the same time

Yeah, having now read all the books right up to the first book of Dance with Dragons (UK here so it's split into 2 books) I can understand their decision for showing Theon's torture.  All of the torture we learn about in the books is through his own inner thoughts.  Not really any easy way they can do that in the series.  And it really is necessary to understand what happens to him so it has to be shown some way.

Haven't actually watched the series so not sure about the Melisandre stuff.  But you remember right about Gendry.  He's quite minor in the books and then when Arya leaves him he's never talked about again except I think maybe a couple of times when Arya remembers him briefly.  So if he's more prominent in the series they are definitely adding material.

The Gendry subplot is new. In the books the last we saw of him I think he was still with The Brotherhood.

The Theon bit isn't new. But they are showing it earlier. In book 3 there is a reference that leads us to suspect he is being tortured by Ramsay but it isn't until Book 5 that we get Theon PoV chapters again where we find out what has been happening to him.

She's also like 16 IRL...

/want a seat over there?

17 as of Feb 21 apparently...

Oops, didn't realize she is still underage. Well, I'll wait for the 4th season then when she will be all grown up.

Humans have evolved to be sexually active starting around the age of 13 or 14... I'm just sayin'...

And missed that too. I was thinking she is and playing an adult. Hence the 'grownup' comment in my initial post. May be I need to pay more attention to the characters.

Honest mistake, she's rather tall and dignified so she seems older than even her actual age as an actress.


Could've swore I watched an interview where they said they're actually advancing the age of the characters in real-time compared to where they started, so as not be forced to have a 20+ year old playing a 14 year old... or find some way to explain why 10 year old Arya has tits, and Rickon isn't 5.

Yeah, rereading the books, they have rather effectively combined Gendry with another side character and made that sideline make more sense. Considering how that ends it doesn't mess up anything in the future for Gendry either.

It's more than his POV and thoughts. We find out because he's a starved, mutilated wreck missing a bunch of fingers and toes who's barely recognizable. They could have easily shown a physically changed Theon later in the show and it would have established what's happened without making us sit through a bunch of utterly pointless torture porn. The only real justification is that Alfie Allen must be under contract or something.

IIRC it was even longer in book time where he was never mentioned.  It was even used as a plot device a bit because you're not entirely sure who the hell this "new" POV character is for a while.

So, I don't really see a problem with it.  The torture scenes are kinda squicky, I could really do without myself.

Correct, there's a lot of rules around how often an actor appears in a series and how they are paid.

I remember from the Community thread that the show couldn't use John Goodman as much as they wanted because he was billed as a "guest star" and only allowed so many appearances.

It's why they got rid of Ser Dontos this season despite him appearing in Season 2. If they want Littlefinger's actor to stick around he has to get screen time.

Don't get me wrong, I have only watched season 1 so I can't really judge what is being argued about here.  And, I don't like torture scenes so mostly I'd prefer they weren't included.  It's why I don't watch shock horror films.

I just feel that there's a difference between showing the damage from someone being tortured and showing how it was inflicted.  And the only reason I say this is that as the book went on and I read more and more about what happened to Theon, my sympathy for him continued to increase.  At first I felt terrible for him upon learning the state he was in physically, but then when I learned about all the other stuff, it's then that I really began to despair for him.  It was horrible to read, but it really did change how I felt about him.

Just my 2 cents anyway.

Swap Arya and Danerys, swap Tyrion and the eunuch. I get where they're going with Arya being chaotic good, but tbh she doesn't really fit in the "good" category anymore. Littlefinger most certainly is NOT "lawful" evil. At best, he's neutral evil, especially after his "the ladder" speech. He's probably best in chaotic neutral, given his embracing of the chaos and all.

Except they handled that in the books by having Ramsay Bolton send out letters with pieces of his skin to Catelyn and I think a few other people. That would have established both what was happening to Theon and what a terrifying sadist Ramsay Bolton is. The only reasons to handle this the way the show is currently is to keep actors involved with the show until they get to ADWD, and to satisfy people who like to watch dudes get carved up for no apparent reason.

That's sort of the other thing that bugs me, too. In the books, there's sort of a reason for why Ramsay is doing what he's doing to Theon; he spent a significant of time himself pretending to be Reek and being subservient to Theon. Which of course means that Ramsay needs to take unending revenge. There's also this weird sexual/personal relationship that Ramsay has with Theon, but there's really no need to get into that here. On the show, though, there's literally no reason except that Ramsay is just a crazy sadist.

It's the best written in the books to and one of the reasons I admire the series in general,  Much more so than in the tv series you start out really hating Tyrion (at least I did ) being dismayed every times he seems to scrape out of what he SO has coming to him,  then you start grudgingly admiring him,  and before you know it you are more or less outright pulling for him.  It's a gifted writer who can make such a transition in a character so believeable  (because you're never really sure if it's because you like him MORE or just everyone else less and less)

That's a fan theory that I don't buy, like Jenye Westerling being preggo and escaping with the blackfish and Syrio being alive somehow.

As his Aunt says Tyrion is his Father's child through and through.

They made him a dark blonde because the actor's skin color just didn't mesh well with pale blond.

True - there is no proof in the books, yet. It will be a major reveal.

What does Tywin Lannister say about him? He says he can't prove Tyrion is not his son. Some things the readers chose to ignore. Some things should be taken literally. It might not turn out different on TV, but in the books, there are clues. Why would Martin describe him that way, just because?

That would have established both what was happening to Theon and what a terrifying sadist Ramsay Bolton is. The only reasons to handle this the way the show is currently is to keep actors involved with the show until they get to ADWD, and to satisfy people who like to watch dudes get carved up for no apparent reason.

That's sort of the other thing that bugs me, too. In the books, there's sort of a reason for why Ramsay is doing what he's doing to Theon; he spent a significant of time himself pretending to be Reek and being subservient to Theon. Which of course means that Ramsay needs to take unending revenge. There's also this weird sexual/personal relationship that Ramsay has with Theon, but there's really no need to get into that here. On the show, though, there's literally no reason except that Ramsay is just a crazy sadist.


They never showed the battle of winterfell on screen, nor have they said who "Boy" is (even though anyone who read the books knows).  Simple explanation is the original Reek was the trumpet player and Theon got his wish about killing him, there done and motive established.  Not to mention the bastard is a blatant sadist given what he does to his wife in the later books.

As for the torture stuff, one nail in the foot and cutting off a finger doesn't even come close to Saw 1 let alone the movies that rightfully deserve the title torture porn.  As long as they keep the rest of it off screen or fade out before they actually do it (ala the castration) then its fine.

shortymac: Clash City Farker: nocturnal001: Magorn: So it's been a long time Since I red the books, and never did read Dance with Dragons but without spoiling it for anyone else, can someone confirm for me that the Subplots with Gendry and the Red Witch and the one with Theon Greyjoy are new to the series 'cause I don't rememeber them at all in the books

They moddified the Red Wtich one to clean up the characters, Gendry was not involved with her.

The books didn't mention Theon's stay at Club Bolton really, he just showed up as a changed man.

I guess party because I still have not figured out if he is one of the 'good guys' one 'bad guys'.

A 'little' of both perhaps? He is a chimera. Part Targaryen, part Lannister.

Part Targaryen? I don't remember that being in his blood.

Well, find book one and read a physical description of what he looks like. Then go read a description of Targs. Its early in the books, so the reader pays no mind to it, but the clues are there for you to put together. His hair color is not right on TV. It should be pale blond almost white.

That's a fan theory that I don't buy, like Jenye Westerling being preggo and escaping with the blackfish and Syrio being alive somehow.

As his Aunt says Tyrion is his Father's child through and through.

They made him a dark blonde because the actor's skin color just didn't mesh well with pale blond.


LOL.  Syrio being alive!  Next you're going to tell me Boba Fett jumped out of the Sarlaac pit.

True - there is no proof in the books, yet. It will be a major reveal.

What does Tywin Lannister say about him? He says he can't prove Tyrion is not his son. Some things the readers chose to ignore. Some things should be taken literally. It might not turn out different on TV, but in the books, there are clues. Why would Martin describe him that way, just because?


The three heads of the dragon being the three most beloved characters would make sense, but seems a little too simplistic for me.

Nope. Fat Boy started writing Game of Thrones in 1991. He was only 43 then. Tyrion's physical description is in the first few chapters.

spoilers

Anything is possible as Martin can always change the plot as he proceeds though I don't see anythign compelling that suggest he is anything but a Lannister through and through.  It should be enough that the Dorne folks have so much Targaryan blood running around.

I do admit that Tyrions vacation to the east might wind up quite different if he is found to have Targaryan blood. I assumed Tywin was just embarassed that he created a dwarf son and wished he could prove that he wasn't really his sone.

Except Tyrion is a Chimera. Look up what that means. It is Martin's wildcard to keep the ending unpredictable.

One more point, this assumes that Martin knows how the story will unfold.  Based on the books and how they progress (or don't progress) I really don't think he knows how the story wraps up.

I would happily be wrong though if I could watch Dinklage ride a dragon.

Wait, are you proposing he has two fathers?  So Tywin and <UNSPECIFIED TARGARYAN>?  That is quite interesting.  It would make sense if that was the cause of his dwarfism.  And fit together nicely if one of the other heads of the dragon bites the dust, or they all live.  Betcha those book forum goers already have this all worked out.

All i want to see, at the end of this book series, is all my favorite characters riding dragons burning the shiat out of The Others on their Ice Spiders in a titanic battle for life itself.

All i want to see in the TV series is more of Oona Chaplin.

That's what GRRM wants you to think. You must pay attention to Jaime when he talks about what went on at King's Landing while he was in the King's Guard.
