Wow, I am stunned...and really, really hoping for a Jon/Brandon reunion (which of course means it won't happen).  I figured that's what happened to the babies, but it was still creepy as fark.  Love that we are flying without a map with Jon and Bran's stories, though...I am pretty excited to see what happens next week.

Okay, quick question. I'm basically sitting through it to get to Jon Oliver, should I even... remotely care about Silicone Valley? Cause it kind of looks really stupid.

Will-Mun: Oh, some ancient unspeakable evils and mysticism in this Fantasy story? Who knew!

I know I know. Magic mostly died off when the Dragons died, and is now slowly returning.

And while I love the series, it's what really bugs me about this style. This and Lord of the Rings really leave a dry taste in my mouth. There seems to be so little FANTASY in Fantasy these days. I mean, what's it take to get a Wizard to throw a damn fireball these days?

I know in the books, Jon sees Bran in his dreams and helps him 'open' his eyes to be able to warg through Ghost.  I've been wondering why we haven't seen any of that yet...but maybe we will see Bran teach Jon directly instead of through a dream this way.  Whatever happens, though, I love it.  It gives Jon a chance to really show his leadership, and it gives Bran something interesting to do at this point in the story.

I did the same thing after the scene where Joffrey has all of Robert's bastards killed, including a baby they ripped from his screaming mother's arms.  I went in and watched my (then) infant son sleep and just cried.

It can be tough to watch the show sometimes.

No. My point was that both things were heavily implied but not explicitly shown in the books. They happened offscreen in the books and onscreen in the show. There is no spoiler.

Video and books are different. In a book, you can have the most epic scenes imaginable through implication.

Take: The Battle of the Hornburg: 10,000 orcs against a desperate castle of weary old men and their families about to be overrun and destroyed saved at the last minute by the last scion of valinor and their sons returning. Tolkien didn't write a word describing it. He only did the set up and the aftermath. Your brain fills in the missing parts and it's one of the best battles in fiction.

Meanwhile Peter Jackson had to show as much as possible in real time or it would have sucked. He spent a huge chunk of his limited script and budget to do this because we process movies differently. We need to see, and quickly. We don't sit and imagine the missing bits, as there's no time. The next scene's already started.

TV is even shorter and more limited. They have to put it out on front street.

In one of the future books Martin said we are going to see the lands of always winter. Evidently we saw it in the show tonight and it was awesome. I know that the stuff with the Others has been implied in the books but never confirmed. It was nice the show gave confirmation.  He better get those next two books otherwise HBO will wrap up his story for him.

2014-04-28 12:34:25 AM  
I thought maybe the White Walkers were taking babies to make more of themselves. So I didn't feel spoiled, I felt vindicated. I understand a lot of book readers feel "spoiled". That scene was pretty epic BTW.

wonder if it turns out Craster had some kind of First Men blood in him or something that concentrated with all that incest into inbred babies suitable for magicking.

Not much in TV or movies, but plenty still in books though authors are playing around more with the idea of magic and what it means in their worlds.

I feel a little bad admitting this about an episode featuring infant sacrifice and rape, but I don't think the show has ever made me feel angrier than when the mutineers were tormenting Hodor.
