    He's not an idiot. He just knows nothing, Jon Snow. :D

    I don't think that they will literally use pig crap, that statement referred to Bron's comment when they were looking at the jars of wildfire.

    As for the speculations, it is fun to read them since I suspect we thought some of the same things as we read the books. It's not a spoiler to say that the next two episodes should be amazing. I've been looking forward to the next episode all season.

    I love reading posts with lots of speculation like Anubys's because sometimes for a short time I recapture the frisson of not having any idea what was coming... so many possibilities! Very exciting.

    However, I'm not sad that I read the books first. There's much fun to be had this way as well and I'm not sure I could take it (certainly right now when work is absolutely crushing me, the last thing I need is to be daydreaming about next week's GoT!)

    I was thinking the exact opposite! I'm glad I don't know what's coming up so I will enjoy the show and the surprises!

    For me, this.

    I have three guys at various stages of reading the books here at work and we speculate and discuss each episode without giving away spoilers. However, I do get "well, they did this different from the book" and sometimes reasons for it, which is also interesting.

    I'm pretty sure Tyrion will live and he will probably save Joffrey. I think the wildfire will be able to hold off Stannis' army thus creating the siege of a (possibly decimated) King's Landing

    I don't see Arya getting safely to Robb, her life seems to be the "Perils of Pauline" (or maybe the "Adventures of Arya")

    Yup and since Robb knows that "The one who passes sentence must carry it out" we will be treated to the scene of Robb beheading someone he considered "Almost a brother"

    Number 1 is the Night's watchman with Jon (that's a layup). Tywin, unlikely, Stannis maybe, Davos likely, Brianne likely

    What happens to Jamie and Brianne?

    I think they arrive in King's landing shortly before Stannis' army, and get seperated in the chaos, Jamie helps save his brother and ummm "nephew", Brianne goes after Stannis and gets Davos instead.

    I want to say to all the non-bookreaders: "You know nothing Jon Snow."

    :D

    It's definitely going to be interesting to see if they diverge from the books.

    Seems like no one cares what happens to Dany and the dragons

    Was Ros the whore that was Theon's favorite, who he saw off when she was on the cart to King's Landing?

    My wife keeps saying things like "I hope he gets it in the battle." or what not and it is very difficult to not say "Well actually..."

    I can't resist saying things like "Well you don't...yet" when she says something like "Do we know who that person is?" :D

    Yes. And Theon told Tyrion to visit her as well.

    Off to the internets!



    Touching on what someone else has said, I am said to see there has been little Dany love so far this season. Her story gets better, I promise. Surely no one considers that a spoiler?

    SPOILER! SPOILER! ;)

    I have love for Dany but they are dragging their feet on telling her story, which I fully get... there are just so many characters to tell the story of in just 10 episodes. I just wish they had spent less time showing her in the vast Dothroki desert before getting to Qarth. Either way, I still have much love for Jorah although I just know he's never gonna get what he wants from her. He'll probably die protecting her. Once she and her babies finally make it across to Westeros that should be super fun!!

    I just can't wait until they get to the part where Jaime finally realizes what a %@^$ Cersei is, and dumps her for Tyrion.


    :D
    Be glad this isn't the books, where a lot less of her story gets dragged out a lot more.

    Even if Tyrion dies at this point in the books (which I seriously doubt) there's no way they're killing him off in the TV show. He's the reason many (most?) people watch.

    I don't have the trademark on that. I saw it somewhere and it cracked me up and stuck with me. Glad you like it, too.

    I grew to like Dany in season one, but this season she's all "I want a ship!" and "I want my dragons!" and not much else. Qarth seems very Qartoonish to me so that hasn't been a very compelling storyline, either.

    I also have to admit that I'm one of those people who doesn't like to see too much "magic" and such on the show. That's the one thing that could cause me to tune out. So far, the balance has been just right, but the dragons could change that. I see this show as a medieval version of The Sopranos and like it that way. If it's dueling wizards, witches and dragons, I'll lose interest really fast. So from that perspective, I'm OK with the dragons staying lost - though I am sure they will be found.

    Dany this year has turned into her brother. That may change in the future, but I do groan when I see her on screen now. Of course, that could easily be remedied with some nudity :p

    I'd like for Stannis to die only because it would take away the only legit contender to the throne. That would make next season even more chaotic (fun!).

    Bron is too awesome a character for George to have killed off in the books. But then again, he killed off Yoren without second thought...
