    When I saw Charles Dance's name on the credits, I said "wait a minute?!" After all that last cross-bow shot wasn't really a killer-shot. So I started to think...

    Anyway, pretty good start. Didn't think they would mention the Dany/Tyrion meeting in the 1st episode. Neither did I think Mance would be a goner so soon.

    Is Jon Snow in a heap of trouble for what he did? It certainly buys him a lot of respect from Mance's men.

    Yeahbut the story was dark. I didn't need to see a man being burned alive, but maybe there will be a few more once Dany's dragons are allowed to fly again.

    If they don't go through how excruciating it is, then the Jon Snow arrow doesn't have as much impact. It still would have gotten the point across but not with the same effect.

    This just seemed like they were announcing the fighters and Michael Buffer yelling "Let's get ready to RUMBLE!" Hopefully the fight starts out with a flurry of good punches and an immediate knockdown.

    Just because an actor is present does not mean their character is still alive. People can have flashbacks or dreams with the actor in them.

    I kind of felt bad for him though. I can imagine the day on set..."Hey Charles! Glad to have you back. Lay there and don't move." I am sure he was thinking "well at least Jamie and Cersei didn't have sex on my body".

    I wouldn't be at all surprised if that was filmed with last season...

    I can get the first four episodes already - someone leaked the first six so far. I think I will pass and wait for HBO air them.

    The story always starts slow and builds. It was a decent start and I am already looking forward to next week. Still not buying the "new guy" as Daenerys love interest. He seems like such a poor fit for the role.

    Yeah I saw that. This is a huge "water cooler" show here at work and being ahead would just feel wrong.

    A couple of points I noticed in the opening credits:
    Winterfell is no longer burning, but the Bolton sigil has replaced the Stark one.

    The Dreadfort was absent, as was Braavos (although I'm guessing the latter will show up when Aria gets there)

    The Aerie makes a comeback, but its "Clockwork version" is based on the original (season 1) version, not the later one.

    Who else besides me expected it when she told all the people outside to wait and walked in to find Jamie there.

    I was very relieved when they didn't.

    I noticed the schedule is 10 weeks straight. In other words, it is airing even on Memorial Day weekend.

    I love every conversation between Tyrion and Varys...

    something along the lines of "I killed my father and my lover"

    "well, I never said you were perfect"

    GoT is back. All is right with the world.

    I saw Pentos and Mehreen (sp?) in the credits. I was going to ask if this was a change and if they've been changing over time.

    I always thought the clockwork opening credits were very cool visually, but I've been too impatient to watch them for years....

    And the thought of Tyrion and Varys having a conversation with Dany is edge of the seat stuff.

    Definitely, and you'd have to wonder how much Dany would trust Tyrion, being a Lannister and all.
