    I don't remember that either. The problem is your'e focused on the white walker holding the head.

    Don't forget, "A crown for a king." One of my favorite scenes from season one.

    I agree we didn't get as many OMG! moments this season but even so, I thought it was just as good and just as short. :)

    Except in episode 1, the girl (who was clearly a "zombie") also had the glowing blue eyes. However, when John snow fought off the zombie at the wall, that one didn't have glowing eyes as far as I can tell. Now sure what to make of that inconsistency.

    I think you have it exactly right.

    The first season was a lot harder because I would spend the first 5-10 seconds of every scene wondering "who the hell is that again?" or trying to tell the difference between Theon and Robb or Jon. On my second watch - much like the second season - I didn't have that anxiety.

    In the books, only the white walkers are described as having glowing blue eyes.

    Non-book reader here. It seems to me that it is being presented to us as if there are at least two different forms of "monsters." One is along the lines of the standard issue zombie and the others are the (as someone else described it) predator-like things, which are big, nimble, sleek but scary looking and may be undead but don't shuffle around with body parts falling off like zombies. (The thing that Jon Snow killed seemed more zombie-ish than predator-ish, but I probably need to see it again.) I also don't know if the thing on the horse at the end of the S2 finale is the same as the predator-looking dudes we saw earlier (going back to S1E1) with clothes on. I assume so, but can't say for sure. It will be interesting to see if Sam survives. If any of them were zombies as we know zombies to be, they'd have made Sam a tasty mid-afternoon snack

    That was a "meh" for me. The book-readers seem much more attached to Renly than non-readers. He was on screen for what, 10 minutes, and at least eight of those were having sex with his brother-in-law. It's hard to get too invested in the character when that's all you see of him. I know he was "beloved" and "popular" because book-readers keep saying that, not because I saw it for myself on the show. If Renly's death was supposed to impact me like Ned's did - it didn't. Not even close. The smoke monster came and went so it didn't make much of an impression on me. If it's so easy to create magical killers, why stop with killing Renly?

    It was probably episode five or so before I realized Theon, Robb and Jon weren't the same guy.

    Dead people don't seem to turn into zombies south of the wall (well, except for the couple who did right AT the wall). I wonder why.

    The zombie that attacked Mormont had blue eyes. I remember noting it when I watched it because it connected him to the White Walkers in the show's prologue.

    The wall is more than just a physical barrier, magic was also used to keep "something" from coming south of the wall.

    Ereth was not hinting at anything whatsoever. Ereth was simply making a joke about "flamethrowers" and "tiny flame breathing dragons". No more should be inferred from that statement.

    That makes sense; although I don't recall that being mentioned.

    Take a look at the one behind him, on the white horse.

    On reviewing it again, they may be colored blue, but you could only tell in a few shots because most of the time he was in shadow, and they certainly didn't glow blue like in episode 1.

    Just Frey's sons and grandsons could make a sizable army. ;)

    I doubt if anyone will do much with Winterfell since it's burned down. And where the heck is Robb's army? Cat was giving Renley a hard time for not getting out there and fighting, but if Robb's been fighting we haven't seen it.

    I'd love to see this research, since I read all 5 books and it's still clear as mud to me. What about
    coldhands--the guy with Bran? What is he?

    I thought just the opposite. I never liked Renley (book reader) but it seemed like lots of people here were rooting for him. :confused:

    :up: :D this (I hadn't read the books yet then)

    What I want to know is why the White Walkers allow some to live. Like the pilot. That kid watches the WW behead his brother and tossed his head right over to him. Why was he not next? If this is something we never know I'll be upset. That's the only reason why I think poor Sam might not be toast.

    OMG, thank you. I am notoriously bad at recognizing people. I'm always thinking 1 person is someone else, or 2 or 3 different people are the same person. That and forgetting what names go with who and what their stories are. This show introduced a lot of different characters, which really exploited my weakness with names/faces, but especially with those 3 characters. Glad I wasn't the only one.

    LOL I hate to admit this but I separated Jon Snow from the others quickly (mostly because of the bastard and him going to the wall) but for quite a few episodes I didn't know the difference between Theon and Robb. I also didn't even remember Rickon for most of the first season.
