    A typical GoT thread. Starts out talking about the TV show then dissolves into spoilers and non-spoilers about the books.

    Can't we just talk about the TV show in a TV forum? The book talk makes a jumble out of the whole thing and makes my head hurt.

    I guess I will no longer even open a GoT thread anymore. They are just a waste of time...

    Ditto. It's fun to see how well they play things out from the books. The book in and of themselves are amazing. There are definitely lots of shockers that have you sitting there going, WHAT?!?!. More so than any other book or series I have read.

    I'm usually a watch the show first/ read the book later kind of guy but I'm glad I've read the books beforehand as the stories are so rich and complicated.

    It's inevitable with a series of this size that's based on such notable books that you're going to get some crossover.

    But there are no spoilers that are visible. I've resigned myself to just having to deal with it and resist the temptation to read them because of how awesome moments like Renly's death are for me not having any clue it's coming.

    Plus some people **coughcoughmecough** have a lot to say! Don't not converse with me over the show because others are referring to the book.
    (and frankly other than a few spoilers all book talk in here has been legitimate talk I thought)

    I've heard that there is a thread somewhere for book readers, but the only one I found, no one was posting on. Last season I hadn't read the books and liked having those who had here to set us straight on things that were in the episode but hard to pick up. Plus I like the long thread better than 2 short ones.

    I agree... keep the book discussion out of the TV show thread. It's like there are two threads mixed together here.

    http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=468391 is the thread that was intended for allowing book discussion. It is in the Happy Hour section.

    So then you should appreciate those of us who HAVEN'T READ ANY OF THE BOOKS.

    That's why there is a spoiler tag... :up:

    Enough of the thread derailment. Why don't we discuss the show?

    It's exciting to see how what I read is interpreted on the show. And a friend of mine was telling me he watches with a checklist in mind. Has this happened - check; is Arya saying this - check; did Bran do this - check. We compare notes every Monday morning; he's got an excellent recall of the books and can point out variances that I don't even pick up on.

    I've now watched the whole episode three times and some scenes even more. The Arya scenes seem to get better every time I watch. The stare at the end with Tywin and the conversation with Jaquen are riveting. When I started this thread I thought I was halfway through the episode only to see that it was already 9:50. I can't wait for the next episode, and yet I am afraid it will also be over too soon.

    I agree. That was a really great scene. Well done by the actress who plays Arya. She's getting good.

    Can we guess whether Arya's hit list ends with Tywin or Jeffy? It's gotta be one she was memorizing.

    Brother Robb may be close.


    BTW, why did Jaquen say he owes her 3 deaths? Because she saved the three? What happened to the maniac?

    What about him led the Lannisters to suit him up for their army?

    Yes, because she saved three lives. He said three lives were due to the Red God and she took them from him, so she has to give them back.

    We haven't seen the other two I don't believe.
