    It's pretty obvious Ereth didn't even bother reading Vol. 146, but just read the dust jacket copy. Because if he'd read the whole book, he'd know that the dragons totally had Kirk and Spock for lunch.

    So maybe we should have a 3rd thread or a 4th or a 5th.

    A thread for just the book readers.

    A thread for the TV viewers.

    A thread for the book readers to spoil the TV viewers.

    A thread for the book readers to spoil other book readers.

    A thread for TV viewers to spoil book readers.

    When does the madness end?

    It should be pretty straightforward - this is the "TV Show Talk" forum, and discussions about the Game of Thrones TV show should be about the TV show - but apparently it's not that simple, since tons of people keep bringing up the books every time a new thread is created about the newest episode.

    And some people spend more time arguing this point than actually contributing to the episode discussion which is truly more annoying.

    Maybe we can rehash this torrent stuff to just to really derail this conversation. I've kept out of the book talk stuff, but honestly, half the conversation is taken up with a meta commentary about what is and what isn't allowed. I think several off topic posts arguing about rules has got to be far more annoying than a spoilered post that can quickly be moved past. Or should we rehash the conversation about email notifications not being spoilered?

    To keep this on topic, I like how Roz got beat up this episode! She's the worst!

    I hope Roz (Ros?) continues to be the Forest Gump of the show...

    Man, can't we just talk about whether or not we can talk about the books? Do we really need discussion about whether or not we can discuss whether or not we can talk about the book? :D

    HBO bills her as Ros. For fear of mentioning the books, what do they show? Roz or Ros? It bugs me not to be sure about stupid things.

    Great, now you've got me imagining Forest Gump working as a prostitute.

    Thanks! I kept typing that but everyone else seemed to be typing Roz so I thought maybe I was wrong.

    Ros is not in the books, at least not using that name.

    OMG, you're right. She's been in the show so much I forgot she was an addition.

    I vaguely remember someone saying Yara was named differently in the books too. I wonder why the changes...

    That was to avoid confusing Osha and Asha. I can't get used to her being named Yara. I wish they had renamed Osha instead.

    But they were okay with Tywin and Tyrion? I'd have just left them all the same.

    At least they are father and son. Osha and Asha have no known relation.

    Oops, spoiler alert! :eek:

    Haha!
    But seriously, is there anyone else that has a name change? Just out of curiosity.

    To keep the vultures happy I shall flog him, er, I mean, spoiler tag him, er, it.

    The new girl in Robb Starks life was Jeyne Westerling in the books, but the new girl is a completely new character, so it's not really a name change as much as they replaced Jeyne with someone else entirely.

    I just saw you replied to this! Thanks :)

    And I'm so excited, I can not only watch the show without worry that it's getting late but I can stay up and actually respond to some posts tonight. And I have a feeling there will be much to discuss after this epic battle! :D
