Obviously it were the Warlocks who stole the Dragons, did not you see the House of the Undying in the closing scene?

Im trying to be optimistic but based on the end of last weeks' episodes the Reed siblings don't seem like they will be making an appearance. At least they would have showed up by now.

If they don't show up that would be a real dissapointment since they are two of my favourite characters and are extremely significant to Brans' story, but it looks like Osha might be the substitute.

They totally skipped the entire hiding in the tombs bit. And I'm still disappointed about the lack of the Reed kids. And I still feel like their omission is an issue with the idea that Howland Reed will reveal Jon Snow's identity. Without the kids Howland Reed is a footnote in the books. And if Martin already had him pegged as endgame, I don't think he'dve let them edit the kids out of the show. It'll make his eventual reveal seem way too out of place. It'd be like if in the new batman movie if Spiderman slung in and told the mayor that Batman was in fact Bruce Wayne. Just way out of left field.

I'll be disappointed if they remove the tomb scene, because that's what makes the escape badass instead of being in typical blah tv show fashion. I think the reeds have to come into the story somehow otherwise how the hell does brans story fully evolve?

Pretty sure that wasn't Marillion either just some jerkoff that wrote the wrong song that pissed off Joffrey. At this point Marillion hasn't been introduced.

It was Marillion who had come to KL after following Cat to the Vale, it's a deviation from the books since in the books it's an unknown singer who is punished for singing that song in KL's taverns. They did it to save on casting and have some familiar face in the scene; consequently not having to bring him back later.

I've heard a lot about this show and I'll probably start watching it in 2 weeks. I got a question to some of the fans here. Is it worth reading the books too or should I just watch the show?

i havent read the books so i have no idea whats going to happen, but it seems like tyrion and joffrey/cersei cannot coexist much longer. how many more times is joffrey gonna let the imp slap the shit out of him before he snaps? how much longer is cersei gonna put up with him? it was bad enough when ned died, they better not kill off tyrion.

You know I've read the books and I never picked up on the fact the singer Marillion was the same one that followed Cat to the Eyrie. Are you sure this is the same guy, I don't remember him giving a name in the first book.
