Game of Thrones S3E8 05/19/2013 'Second Sons'

hmm...is the original air date to the episode 7 thread wrong?

Lots to talk about. Cersei is a complete and total b*tch.

Joras is not going to like the new guy. He's not going to like him at all!

I was unsure whether the dragonglass was going to be the ultimate weapon against dragons or white walkers. I guess now we know.

Thank God for small favors: No Theon!

I knew Fabio The Mercenary would end up aligned with Danaerys as soon as his hair started blowing in the breeze.

Remind me to get the heck out of dodge with a quickness when more than three crows gather together.

Dudes getting sex can't catch a break. Torture quickly follows.

I wonder who got the penis leech, Joffrey, Balon, or Robb?

Melisandre certainly is cruel. She could have just put the leeches on his arm. Heck, she probably could have persuaded him to put them on his own arm.

Was it someone here that wanted to see more of Emilia Clarke?
Did Samwell remember to take the knife after the White Walker's death?
I loved Diana Rigg's explanation of all the convoluted familial relationships between the Lannisters and the Tyrells.
OK, if all that Mellisandre needed was a leech's mouth full of the "blood of a king" why couldn't Stannis supply that? I assume the answer is she's going to need a lot more for a later spell, but if he put the hex on Robb, Joffrey, and Balon Greyjoy, why not Daneris?

Has anyone noticed that the better "legal" claim one has to the Iron Throne, the lousier the claimholder is?

Cersei is certainly is a handful, too bad she's a woman else she'd be the one to inherit House Lannister.

So now Dany has her army and the gold to fund them...and all she had to do was take a bath.

My wife's comment about the bath was "They only need like another inch of water and her nipples would be covered"

My reply: "I bet that water level was selected very carefully"

I was yelling at my TV "Don't forget the dagger you just killed that thing with you idiot!"

I think she wants a lot more of his blood, but the onion knight managed to create enough doubt that they needed a "test" first.

Tell your wife they only needed a different camera angle for full frontal.

Tyrion had some great drunken lines. And the look on Joffrey's face when he was threatened.

I think this episode highlights a better way of making the show. Let's just say there are 9 different stories going on (e.g. Robb, Arya, Tyrion, Jaime, ...etc.). I think it would be better to pick 3 stories and spend an entire episode on them.

Cycle through each story every 3/4 episodes while spending 5 minutes on the minor ones (e.g. Sam, Theon). I think it's much better than episodes where we spend 3-5 minutes on each story and jumping around too much.

Rich Man / Poor Man did this (one week it was Peter Strauss, the other was Nick Nolte). And it worked very well.

Yup! For a minute, I was sure that we were about to see the next GoT death. For best scene, it's a toss-up between that and "Not there, not THERE!"

When I saw the preview last week, I was really hoping for a Tywin/Joffery confrontation.

This episode showed again that Joffrey is ultimately a total coward, no matter how many tied up prostitutes he abuses.

With Melisandra saying that the lamb needed to be sacrificed, I was sure, as we were supposed to think, that Gendry was going to have his throat cut.

My buddy and I were mentioning that if Sansa really was only 14 then we for sure would never see her boobies.

"If you call me sister again, I'll have you strangled in your sleep." Oh, yeah? Exactly which woman would be the queen?

Yeah. I'm looking forward to the day when Jeffy is face to face all alone with Arya, "HELLO! My name is Arya Stark. You killed my father. Prepare to die."

at the time, the intent was to kill Gendry. Only The Onion Knight saved him by asking for a demonstration of the power (I assume we will see what does happen to Robb, Joffrey, and Balon).

The actress is 17. We are absolutely not going to see boobies.

Interestingly both Sansa and Daenerys (the characters, not the actresses who portray them) are very close to the same age in the story (Dany is two years older). But their life experiences have shaped them in very different ways.

So what was the leech spell supposed to do? They cut immediately to Joffrey, but nothing happened to him.

Did Stannis mess it up by calling him "Joffrey Baratheon"? Stannis of all people knows he's not a Baratheon.

What does Stannis have against Robb? Robb doesn't want the Iron Throne, and didn't Ned say that Stannis should be the true heir?

Robb has declared himself king of the North (Balon Greyjoy declared himself king as well). All 3 are traitors as far as Stannis is concerned since he is the rightful heir to the entire kingdom (including the North and the Pyke).

Stannis wants the whole kingdom, he views Robb as a rebellion trying to tear his kingdom apart.

When you discover that the magic knife kills the unkillable monsters, shouldn't "run away" be put on hold pending "pick up the magic knife"?

Yes, not the sharpest tool in the shed.

A rather dull tool, rusting away in the weeds outside the shed.

Funny that I just saw the boobies of Lip's girlfriend, Karen, on Shameless and they're supposed to be in high school.

They did make lots of fire when she through them in. I figure that was the "proof".

I don't know, leeches catching fire when they're thrown into a fire isn't proof to me of anything except that leeches are flammable...
