The old ones are. The new ones aren't.
Yes. And the Tyrells are from Highgarden, south of King's Landing and Storm's End. That's where Renly gets his 100,000 men.
I didn't think it was that difficult. Maybe other people skip or don't pay attention to the opening credits, but I watch it religiously and rewind if I miss something. This week I saw 2 new places: Harrenhal and Qarth. Just seeing those location in the credits was all I needed to figure it out.
The only location I wasn't clear about was the opening battle, though I suspect that was intentionally vague. And I forget where Renley is. I think that was in the credits last week. Looking at the map online, I think that was Storms End?
On another topic, does anyone else have trouble seeing all the dark scenes in this show? I've never had another show where the night scenes were so difficult to see any detail.
Which makes no sense given that they are newborn and have not eaten in weeks!
I was disappointed in the opening credits as the 2 new places didn't rise up from the map like the other places. Any idea why it was done? is it because it's not one of the kingdoms? (but the Dothkhari isn't a kingdom and it rose...there I go again, arguing with myself!).
It was odd that Harrenhall wasn't animated in the opening credits.
I pay more than close attention. I just didn't realize the new place was the same as we were seeing at that moment. By the time the show was over and I was typing stuff up there was so much to remember and I was rushed to get to bed.
Qarth definitely did the steam-punk thing.
Harrenhal I didn't notice really. Maybe they were indicating it's status as a ruined place?
The dragons melted the gears, and now it's stuck open.
Westeros.org has really nice comparisons for the episodes.
Here's this weeks:
Nice! Thanks for that. It makes me feel good to cross-reference my memory with the actual events in the book. Certain scenes are made up to compress time and events and I'm sometimes not certain if they are events that happened in the book or mere suggestions in the book that get turned into cinematic plot devices.
I'm glad to see my memory is pretty good on most points.
Oh someone (if they follow the books) eventually dies from a crossbow in a very... interesting... way. Can't remember exactly which book it was in though, so might not be this season.
Joffrey looked composited in during the spanking scene. I guess Gleeson is under-age.
In either world his already having a wife would slow things down too. I don't remember hearing about divorce in Westeros....
Who was the guy who was discussing what to do with all the prisoners with Rob? I think he mentioned flaying as a torture technique. I have read the books and still can't catch all the names, or maybe because I know who I'm looking for I'm jumping to conclusions. I also missed that it was Tywin who took over at Harrenhaul--again looking for someone else.....
The HBO summaries are great for figuring out names.
Web consensus is that he is 19
Wild. I wonder if his parents supervise.
The over 17(18?) porn law should only apply if it was him having the sex, but maybe this was close enough.
I'm pretty sure he was talking to Roose Bolton. The Boltons are pretty into flaying.
Oh dear where are all the spoiler freaks? Don't think we're at the point that Bran has actually named his wolf yet are we?
Yes she is.
Pretty disappointed in the whole whopping 2 of seconds Robb attacking as Grey Wind.
Well I'm a spoiler freak and it doesn't bother me to have this info ahead of time. Hope it doesn't anyone else. I just assumed I had forgotten.
Bran names Summer in the first book after he wakes up from his coma...
