I love how every good line from the novel is brought out in the episodes.. Thats the reason why Tyron is such a great hilarious character. All his best material is displayed without much of the extra dialog found in the book. Despite the 'cliff-note' translation from book to show, it still hits all the major points and fully reveals all the needed characterization. Even when they change things, it all remains in accordance with the overall essence of the Ice and Fire story.

Great episode.

I'm plugging away through the book(s). I'm somewhere in the 150 page range of the first book, which means I'm right about where the show is at the moment, at least on a lot of the story archs. I find the reading goes pretty well having a face to associate with most characters.

I'm surprised at how close to the books the story has been so far. Except for a few minor changes, it's been pretty true. Some things have been watered down, like the relationship with the wolves, particularly Jon Snow's, but for me there's been enough there to introduce them when the need arrives.

I'm still a little surprised I was able to flat out pick up on that big twist a month ago after like episode two. It was much easier to notice visually than in the books I think.

Shit is definitely starting to hit the fan. I did not sign onto HBO go to check out next weeks episode. Not yet anyway.
Good layout by the way for that gimmick, because with this coming weekend being a long one, Sunday night may not be as TV centric as it often is.

Anyone know what's up with PirateBay? Haven't been able to access them now for a few days. Thus, No Game of Thrones for me.

This is next weeks episode.

Wait! I totally just realized something... If we watch "You Win or You Die" tonight we'll have to wait TWO WEEKS to get a new Game of Thrones episode right? Whoa, dilemma. Something to think about anyway, enjoy the temptation.

Yeah, HBO released episode 7 early on there HBO Go set up as a way to drive traffic there. It's probably available in a bunch of other places now as well.
