So, this whole Craster's Keep thing is new, isn't it? I remember the mutiny, but Bran never went there and Jon Snow never led men there to kill the mutineers. I guess they had to do something with Bran because not much happens with him for a book or two. They could have Coldhands save him, though. I don't like the idea of Jon and Bran having a reunion.

Dingleberry Dickwad: dopekitty74: Omg Owen from torchwood!! Was he in last season when the mutiny happened?

Yeah, he kinda led the whole mutiny. I recognized back then too.


I hadn't watched torchwood at this point last year, so that would be why i don't remember him. Which episode of ssn 3 was that?

Let's be honest, Cercei had it coming.

ongbok: bborchar: Unicron74: Okaaayyy. So after watching that last scene, I had to go pick up my 2 month old out of the crib and hold him as close as possible because, fark that was tough to sit through, especially when the baby smiled.

/wife was on the verge of tears

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.

How do you think your kids are going to feel when they find out their father is a big pussy?


You mean "their mom"?

I guess it won't be as shocking.

I wonder if they are even going to bother with Coldhands at this point- it looks to me like they are cutting him out. Bran is beyond the Wall already and knows where he has to go. And Jon knows that he's alive. I'm sure they find some way to avoid a reunion, but I would love to see it.

Nefarious: Somehow I have to think this will have to be better then Kirk Cameron's Left Behind.


...The hell, really? I mean, I know he's all super-conservative-fundamentalist-Christian and all, so he'd never use "Ass Cheek", but "Buttock" is a clinical term. That should have been allowed. Besides, "Left Behind" doesn't even make sense. Sheesh.

Incidentally, why would you hold that up as a standard, anyway? Or is it like "Dog's Bollocks" or "Bee's Knees"?

I assumed they were a lesbian couple.

Well, according to the internets Coldhands did kill the mutineers in the books, though under different circumstances. That's no guarantee he hasn't been written out of the show entirely, but I wouldn't be surprised to have Jon and his men show up late to the slaughter.

Well, the preview for next week shows Jon and his men fighting them. I'm not saying Coldhands won't appear, I'm just not sure what's let for him to do at this point.

doglover: ctrlshiftspace: Jerseysteve22: ctrlshiftspace: Jerseysteve22: It's nice that the show is spoiling the future books. He betterror get writing!

What spoiler?

Were you one of those people outraged that the show "made" Renly and Loras gay?

Made them gay? They were gay. The last 5 minutes was stuff from the forthcoming book presumably.

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.


Not sure that's true

The battle of the green fork was implied and awesome

Spoilers:

Arya Stark is the Dragon Reborn, the Wall is actually the Bore, and Jon Snow will trade his eye for a cool hat, a spear, and some luck.

And Calissi will tug on her braid.


That would make the Jon scenes infinitely more watchable, and Calissi infinitely less.  God I farking hate perrin...only reason I haven't finished that series (on book 11)

Also, Arya with balefire would be hilarious.

Actually, Jon's scenes to me are the ones I look forward to the most, and Dany's the least.  To me it just seems like all of the really important things are happening at the Wall, while the rest of the country plays at soldiers.

What Dany's thread lacks is a more substantive tether to what's happening in Westeros.  As it stands now it's like a whole other story.  It was nice that Tywin at least acknowledged her and her dragons existence last week, but it needs more.  This is an instance where I think the writers need to really diverge from the books or start losing people.  The only thing that salvages that storyline is watching Emilia Clarke, but even that's starting to get old.

I have a feeling that we are going to see a lot of divergence from here on out, considering that they will have to combine AFFC and ADWD in the show because the stories run concurrent.  I will be very interested to see how they handle that, and to see what we get.  That said, I truly hope they keep Wyman Manderly, because he was one of my favorite new characters from the books.

But the Hound most closely resembles Lan, so he should be off with Sansa (the closest to the annoying PITA that Nynaeve is).

Mad_Radhu: Will-Mun: Nefarious: Somehow I have to think this will have to be better then Kirk Cameron's Left Behind.

Once they said the name I instantly realized what it was... It started off interesting but the trailer lost me half way through.

2% of the population vanished. Ooh, interesting. People doing... STUFF. Less interesting. Completely unthreatening cult people in white. Kay...

LEFTOVERS!

Oh it's a Rapture thing.

Also anything would be better than Left Behind.

It's based on a well reviewed book by the guy who wrote Little Children, so it has the potential to be a good show. Big downside: Damon Lindelof is producing,


Lindelof? So it will be yet another "character driven story of science versus faith, good vs evil, and personal redemption"  that makes no sense, resolves nothing, and ends badly.

/yeah, still bitter

whistleridge: BalugaJoe: Isnt answer in the books?

Surprisingly not. Until this season, the series has mirrored the books pretty closely, but Arya and the Hound is new, and the whole 'Jamie rapes Cercei and turns himself into an unsympathetic character again' thing is new. I'm curious to see if they begin diverging seriously, ala  True Blood , or if they somehow bring it all back in line.

/hopefully none of that counts as spoilers?


Given their scenes between Cersei and Jaime from this episode I'm thinking things weren't quite as rapey as that scene played last week.

Exactly.  She'll hint at how much she wants him, wants to marry him, talk about how sacred marriage is and how she can't do anything with him until they're married...

Cersei will be against the marriage and Tommen will tell her to piss off, eventually.

Combination of teenage rebellion, teenage hormones and the fact that he's the King 'and' it's a good political marriage and Cersei is doomed in this matter.

Did anyone else notice that Cersei's only two overriding goals at this point is to see Tyrion dead and Tommen kept safe and secluded and she can't accomplish either of them?  I guess her getting raped may well be that turning point for her character and the beginning of her inevitable downfall.

I'm talking about the other stuff (Prometheus, etc)

But if you're still upset about LOST, he pretty much created that show and it was brilliant for the majority of its run. So it didn't end the way you thought it should, most people were entertained and the speculation during the last season showed people still were thinking heavily about it.

In the preview for next week, Dany actually mentions King's Landing for the first time - asks her entourage if the Unsullied, freed slaves and sellswords are enough to take the city.  Sounds like a maybe.

Yeah, her story makes me tune out now. It's just been 3 seasons of walking for her. She's supposed to be the awesome/kind ruler in the future or something, right? She just seems to be out for revenge on the common people and is letting it get to her head. Which is good. Even her "perfectness" is a gray area morally. But it's been the same thing, over and over and over.

GRRM started the story off without enough obstacles to get in her way of getting to Westeros.  So, he had her get obsessed with freeing slaves.  Then he had her realize that those slaves who've never had to govern themselves or others are really bad at governing themselves and others.

It gets worse from there on.

I think the fact that she can't control her dragons and refused to take the counsel of Selmy when he told her to show mercy shows that this isn't true.  She's inexperienced and is making mistakes, which will only increase.

I'm waiting for her and her personal assistant woman to bust out in some scissoring action, or at least ass to ass. Is that too much to ask?

Plus, how is she feeding all these freed slaves?
