    If they follow the past pattern it should only be ten months. Sounds better than a year. I may have to reread at least one of the books.

    YES! It was a great expression!

    Now I'm just sad for you.

    Ha! Let's do it!

    10 months might as well be 10 years the day after the season ends. [​IMG]

    Let's just hope it is only 10 months. Sometimes HBO takes a lot longer for their stuff too.

    I really thought Tyrion was going to get some props for his role in the defense of King's Landing. The soldiers really rallied around him. I thought that would be worth something.y

    It's got to be at least a decent amount. When Cat negotiated with him, she said he agreed to give Robb his men for the war, except for the 400 he keeps to defend the bridge. I took it as 400 was just a small part of his army. So I'd guess 1000-2000 troops.

    Now let's see if Cercie has as an easier time with The Hand = Daddy. I bet not.
    Besides, Tywin can't stay in King's Landing and serve as Hand. Robb's army is bearing down on Lannister's.

    Actually I don't know that Jon would kill him. Taking the black means your past is forgotten and Jon's vows mean a lot to him. That would definitely be an interesting scene. That was definitely Theon's best bet for a longer life, in any event.

    I thought it was very well done that Ros was not scared of him at all UNTIL she found out he was castrated.

    All I can say to this is hmmmm......makes me think about what might happen in how Dany might get the iron throne. And I'm probably totally wrong!!

    We have flaming arrows, dragons, and wildfire (aka firewater ;)). CGI budgetary restrictions aside, humans are not helpless against the White Walkers!

    I don't know. He almost left the black once to join Robb and if not for his friends, probably would have. If he's under the impression that Theon killed his brothers or sacked his hometown, me might have at him. Remember Jon is very impulsive and has a very soft spot for Bran if I recall from the first season (I might not be remembering correctly). Out north of the wall, a convenient accident could occur, couldn't it?

    I know what you are thinking, and it makes a certain amount of sense. I have not read the books nor heard from anyone who has on this matter, but
    based purely on the titles of the books (book 5 is "A Dance with Dragons", book 6 is "The Winds of Winter") I assumed it was going to happen in the opposite order.

    We shouldn't make any assumptions about how to kill a white walker. We have only seen wights killed with fire.

    I only thought this because I know Ereth has read the books and he had a little wink in there. Makes sense when you think about it.

    True, but fire seems a pretty good way to kill anything. And we know the wildlings burn their dead before they can turn.

    Again White Walkers and Wights are not the same thing. Fire and burning dead bodies stops them from becoming Wights but not White Walkers. As viewers, we do not know how they became, as far as I know.

    Actually, as viewers, we don't even know that there IS a difference between wights and white walkers, do we? I don't think the term "wight" has even been introduced. For all we know a white walker (like the guy on the horse) is just an older, more deteriorated wight (or something magical like, as they kill they steal the lifeforce and use it to form their more advanced form of looking more like a monster than a dead body). I'm assuming the only reason we know the difference is because someone has injected some book knowledge into this discussion.

    They injected the name wight but we knew there was a difference between the two. At least I did before it was given a name.

    You're right. I've read the books and got confused because they've changed the name. In the book the White Walkers are called "The Others."

    I did some research (which will likely spoil things) and it all makes sense now.
