That's what I thought as well. Then I thought they got the wrong name.

geography is probably a better guess, though!

Goeffery I can see as being #1 on her hit list, Tywin, not so much, yes, he is the scion of the family that has caused hers much pain, but he is treating her honorably, even if he doesn't know who she really is.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Jaquen's gods are neither the "Old or new" gods, but the same god as that Mellisande is a priestess of, right? BTW Is there a time frame that she has to "pay back" those 3 deaths by? Will that god "foreclose" on her (and/or Jaquen) if she doesn't pay up?

2 Words: Cannon Fodder (OK, since it is a pre-gunpowder fantasy world "Spear Fodder"). Remember the Lannister army is getting their butts kicked by Robb, and front line soldiers are pretty much expendable.

Joffrey might be number 1 but when will he ever have the opportunity to carry that out??

Yeah. I meant that Robb's army and Grey Wolf seemed to be right behind the Lannister camp that raided and took Arya and Gendry.

I can't even read my email without being spoiled because of people who have read the book constantly posting spoilers in this thread. When spoilers are quoted there is no indication whatsoever in my email or when reading on my phone that what is being quoted is a spoiler.

How about "Trebuchet (i.e. catapult) Fodder"?

You could turn off email notifications for this thread and then make a point of not checking it while on your phone.

edit: ooops. What photoshopgrl said.

On your spoiler comment, I assumed this because....

Spoiler:
All the people going nuts about him when we first saw him on screen. It was kind of a give away he might be a character of importance later and not just some one off minor character for that episode

That's why I asked if there is a time limit on the debt, if the Red God is a patient sort then he might be willing to wait for Goffrey, otherwise Arya might need to come up with a more immediate victim.

I'm guessing that Jaqen is going to end up being victim #3, but that's jsut a feeling I have.

So Arya will ask him to kill himself?

What phone do you have? There is an Android app, ForumRunner, that works great with this forum and does not show spoilers. Not sure if there is a version for iPhone or not.

I suggest that people who have read the book and can't resist talking about it make a seperate thread for each episode. It seems that would be much more enjoyable for them anyway. They could talk freely and anyone who hasn't read the books and wants to read the spoilers could do so.


Why inconvenience every person who either reads on their phone or subscribes to threads and gets email notifications?
Every other post is a spoiler in these threads and it is inconsiderate.

Plus, book readers have on many occasions posted non-tv information without spoiler tags.

I agree, but it won't do any good. Some people just can't help themselves and some people just don't care.

Change the notification to "no email" for this and other threads. Problem solved.

These threads would be WAY better if people would just leave the books completely out of the conversation (and I say that as someone who's read all the books).

I agree 100% with you (I've read some but not all of the books yet). I was just letting people know (not necessarily you, old-timer ) that they don't HAVE to get an email notification.

I have NOT read the books, and I find some of the posts from those who have read the book to be invaluable. They have, on many occasions, provided valuable additional info that has been left out of the show. I feel I have a much greater appreciation of the show because I understand all the back story so much better. I would hate to shoo all of those posters away to a thread of their own.

I tend to agree. I guess I'm kind of for and against spoilers in this thread. I have no technical issues because I don't have notifications and my phone and iPad both user ForumRunner so spoilers work with it. I just hate the temptation.....but then I'll turn around and ask a question of someone that's read the book.

I've started using it again since it's obvious book discussion isn't welcome here even if tagged properly and well within the rules of the forum.


Instead of worrying about spoilers so much, people should be concerned with posters who act like they've never read the books when it's pretty obvious they have.

I'm more concerned with people posting to complain that others are using the forum properly by using the spoiler tag, when they themselves have not even posted to said thread and have not added to the discussion. They've only posted to complain, clog up the thread and derail the fun discussion that is at hand and that others are clearly using and enjoying.
