Maybe it's because "Winter is Coming" in Westeros, and there has been an all-out war, while it's not-Winter (don't know about other seasons) and relatively peaceful where Dany is?

On my first viewing I thought it was sewn shut for sure, but on my second and third viewings it looked like a big rope in his mouth. However, his hands aren't tied so I dont' understan why he couldn't get it out of his mouth unles he was simply not strong enough.

I totally missed that I'm usually able to pick up on stuff like that. To me it looked like she was just kneeling at a rock that was part of that seawall. It makes total sense that it was a Weirwood though

Spoiler:
Although in the books, I believe the only Weirwood was in a courtyard of the castle in King's Landing. I suppose there were choped down ones elsewhere.

This.

They seemingly always wrap up the episode and currently exist in a bubble separate from the rest of the action but the anticipation when continents collide is growing at an amazing pace.

Yeah she does very much kick ass. Her advancement and development as a character has been amazing but huge kudos for the actress as she has really brought to life her lightning fast evolution.

One side question anyone else having trouble keeping all the characters straight. I turbo watched the first 1.5 seasons so it was easier to keep track in a marathon.

I know the numerous main characters but occasionally find myself lost with secondary and tertiary characters this season. I would say my biggest problem is with the people in the north.

I am very interested in seeing where Maegery goes (don't know spelling of her name). She could have an interesting road and I hope it ends poorly for Joffrey.

Anyone else think Joffrey should become an official insult? "Stop being a Joffrey" or "Your such a Joffrey".

It sure doesn't help that they seem to pick actors that are very similar to each other in looks.

I always seem to get Robb and Theon mixed up.

Watched this episode last night. Really great episode.

I'm sure everyone had been thinking that she could really speak the language of the slave master. That she understood what he was saying the entire time. I think we all assumed that she wasn't really giving away a dragon. So, it kinda ended how I figured it would, but it was so amazing to see. I watched the last couple minutes of the episode 3 times. Awesome!!!

I don't see the Robb/Theon resemblance (Theon looks like a rat), but at first I did mix up Robb and Jon Snow.

Same. Both are also attractive where I don't think Theon is at all.

Robb is Disney's Prince Charming. Theon is Quasimodo without the hump. Where's the confusion?

Oh yeah, they mix me up to.

I sometimes feel I need to be watching a pop-up video version where the first time most charactors appear in an episode it pops up a little "you last saw them doing X at Y", or "she's only been talked about, not seen, before this", or even "he's totally new, stop trying to rack your brain for info on him"

As half-brothers they should look alike. I was actually rather surprised at how well they cast that that the brothers would look so similar.

Next on GoT: Varys ships the crate off to the X cross guys for final enjoyment and disposal.

Some of that kind of info will show up on the HBOGo frames. Not really pop-up video style, which would be so sweet! but it will give you a bit of reference.
Thanks to Danterner for pointing out this little watcher tool.

I don't think they are half-brothers, but I haven't read the books. I think Jon Snow is a Baratheon.

Umm.... I have not read the books, and have only watched the show, but I feel I should probably spoiler my response to this....

Spoiler:
Are you sure you want to read this?
Spoiler:
Are you really sure you want to read this?
Spoiler:
How do you know that they are half-brothers? That has been implied by certain characters, but we really know nothing of the mother; and the father, Ned Stark, has never actually said that Jon Snow is his son. He's only said that "you are my blood", which could mean that he is related, but not actually his own son.

Why would you think that?

He is Ned's son from another woman. Ned even talked about it with the king when they were alone. There was never a hint of Ned taking the blame for him. And it's not like the guy had a problem with having bastards!

Robb and Jon Snow are half-brothers. At this point, it's a complete and undisputed fact.

I don't think that anything was stated that made it as complete and undisputed as you seem to recall.

How so?

Ned said he was his. Ned and the king, on the way to King's Landing, talked about the war, the girl Ned banged, and Jon Snow being the baby. Ned and Cat, on different occasions and to each other, talked about Ned coming back from the war with Jon Snow. Ned's brother and all the Stark boys and girls have stated on several occasions that Jon is Ned's son and a bastard.

How unequivocal do you need?

I understand what you're saying and why you think that. I just don't agree that Ned admitted as much as you think he did but I tend to be a stickler for exactly what people said vs. what can easily be inferred (but perhaps shouldn't be). So I could be wrong.

To be clear, I am in no way arguing that Ned hasn't passed Jon off as his bastard. But there a many times when things are said that indicate that things are not as clear cut as that story. I don't believe that is just to confuse things unnecessarily.

It is only a spoiler if you have some information not from the show that leads you to your hypothesis.

In reference to John's mother--it's funny in the books (not a huge spoiler)
Spoiler:
I've read all 5 books, and it seems that every few chapters someone claims that he knew someone who knew the girl who was John's mother, and they are all different and in totally different places. That's really suspicious right there.
