At this point the audience is supposed to assume the Iron men took Winterfell and burned it. I'm sure it will be revealed seems like they'd go with this storyline or else Maester Luwin would have revealed to the boys who actually did the killing.

Me too. That part is what made me say "Wait, why am I for the Lannisters?". I wonder how much fighting he actually does. He seems to enjoy war. I guess you cant be a great leader if you dont get the hands dirty. Not uncommon I supposed. But he appears up in age. Figure he lay low given his background is pretty known.

Im wondering who blew theh orn the 3 times....

And yea Jamie might have had the best lines of the season. He always has a good point explaining himself.

And nobody even argues they just stand there looking at him like garbage as if he didnt just powerbomb them through a table made of real talk.

Eh, the season finale was very reflective of the entire season; a bit on the bunk side.

The entire season has felt very anti-climatic and a bit on the uninteresting side of things. I'm glad i decided to begin reading the books as i feel the show is leaving out a whole lot of things that the book doesn't. Sure, this is usually the case with series/films based on books, but this show feels like it leaves out more than necessary.

I almost fear this series (the books) is suffering the same fate as the X-Men universe in Marvel movies; too many characters with a lot of story to properly depict on screen. Though i do feel an X-Men dramatic series could work on TV, but that it is the writers/directors of Game of Thrones that are to blame for this show feeling like there isn't enough time to tell much of the story. Or maybe i should blame whoever allows only ten episodes.

I'm going to read the damn books. This story is too good. This season was on the slower side, but I can see it picking up next season.

Can't wait to see the chunks I'm missing by reading the books, because these seasons are ridiculously short, which is a common complaint. Step your Game up HBO.

roz is a great character, i love how they're using her for different plots whenever they happen to revolve around whores lol.

I think the old man playing Tywin is Sir Charles Dance, not only is he an actual Knight, he's a Shakespearian actor too so that line was just perfect for him.

lol great quote from him on Game of Thrones:

Quote:
[on certain scenes in the series 'Game of Thrones'] You saw all this violence and all this rumpy pumpy, and it's all doggie-style. I said to [the executive producers] 'Obviously, the missionary position didn't come into vogue for a few years yet in the Seven Kingdoms. And they said 'We wanted it to be kind of animalistic, Charles' and I said, 'Well, it's certainly that'.

Spoiler Alert: Tywin plays a major role in the 3rd book. I honestly don't know if there will be any more scenes between him and Arya since none of those occurred in the books. My guess is no.

btw, here is a little bit of speculation for those who haven't read the books. i don't consider this a spoiler, since GRRM hasn't confirmed anything.


remember syrio, arya's "dancing" instructor from Braavos? In season one, he holds off the Lannisters to give Arya a chance to escape. We never see his presumed death onscreen, and it happened the same way in the books.

Then we meet Jaqen, who also happens to be from Braavos, who also helps Arya out. we later find out that Jaqen is a bad ass assassin who can change his appearance.

alot of people have speculated that syrio and jaqen are the same person. it may be wishful thinking, but both characters are fan favorites and it would be cool if that's how it turns out.


Just something for u guys to think about while we wait for season 3...
