    I did notice the stump. Also in the opening scene of Winterfell while everything else is burning they show weirwood trees coming up green through the black mess. I take that as a sign that the Starks aren't done yet. :up:

    Do people know about the weirwood trees solely from the tv show or from the books?

    I have to say how much I like it when the scenes shift to Danaerys from an aesthetics point of view. Everything in the north is various shades of black, grey and dirty white with a whole bunch of mud brown thrown in. At least it's bright and sunny with some muted colors in Danys-ville.

    I knew of them from the TV. I've not read the books.

    You'll probably remember from early - maybe Season 1 - Ned Stark is praying at the trees, and Catelyn or someone comes out and we get to see all the faces on the trees, like they're talking back. Or something like that... Hopefully one with a better memory than mine will also chime in here.

    I agree. There were many references in Season 1. Jon Snow also took his vows next to one at Castle Black. Even the Maester crawled to the base of the tree to die (after Winterfell was burned down).

    Jon Snow also made his vows to a heart tree because he believed in the old gods

    I'm not sure about this whole "unsullied" thing.

    Yes, I agree. The other locals are very dreary and not very pleasing to look at. But wherever Danaerys seems to be is much brighter, colorful and pleasant to see.

    Maybe it's because "Winter is Coming" in Westeros, and there has been an all-out war, while it's not-Winter (don't know about other seasons) and relatively peaceful where Dany is?

    On my first viewing I thought it was sewn shut for sure, but on my second and third viewings it looked like a big rope in his mouth. However, his hands aren't tied so I dont' understan why he couldn't get it out of his mouth unles he was simply not strong enough.

    I totally missed that I'm usually able to pick up on stuff like that. To me it looked like she was just kneeling at a rock that was part of that seawall. It makes total sense that it was a Weirwood though

    Although in the books, I believe the only Weirwood was in a courtyard of the castle in King's Landing. I suppose there were choped down ones elsewhere.

    This.

    They seemingly always wrap up the episode and currently exist in a bubble separate from the rest of the action but the anticipation when continents collide is growing at an amazing pace.

    Yeah she does very much kick ass. Her advancement and development as a character has been amazing but huge kudos for the actress as she has really brought to life her lightning fast evolution.

    One side question anyone else having trouble keeping all the characters straight. I turbo watched the first 1.5 seasons so it was easier to keep track in a marathon.

    I know the numerous main characters but occasionally find myself lost with secondary and tertiary characters this season. I would say my biggest problem is with the people in the north.

    I am very interested in seeing where Maegery goes (don't know spelling of her name). She could have an interesting road and I hope it ends poorly for Joffrey.

    Anyone else think Joffrey should become an official insult? "Stop being a Joffrey" or "Your such a Joffrey".

    It sure doesn't help that they seem to pick actors that are very similar to each other in looks.

    I always seem to get Robb and Theon mixed up.

    Watched this episode last night. Really great episode.

    I'm sure everyone had been thinking that she could really speak the language of the slave master. That she understood what he was saying the entire time. I think we all assumed that she wasn't really giving away a dragon. So, it kinda ended how I figured it would, but it was so amazing to see. I watched the last couple minutes of the episode 3 times. Awesome!!!

    I don't see the Robb/Theon resemblance (Theon looks like a rat), but at first I did mix up Robb and Jon Snow.
