plus the army dhaenrys bought is more badass than dothraki.
The poster was talking about the real life accounts of Mongol vs Viking. Basically the same weapons, armor you are talking about above. It wasn't a question of who would win, the only curiosity was how long the vikings/knights could withstand the onslaught. Now in this author's book it might be another way... but we weren't discussing that.

I hate what comes next with Jamie. I don't want to spoil it...but for me it was one of the more disgusting parts of the books; I really do wonder if the show will carry through with it.

The women in these books are damn annoying.

I have done a pretty good job hearing about the "Red Wedding" being some big event or something without getting spoiled so without any of you spoiling what happens in that event, how many episodes do you think we are from it?

Fcking Women

It will almost certainly be in the penultimate or last episode of the season.

Maybe span both.

6 or 7th episode would be my guess. I think Dany and Jorah end this season again.

That would be one hell of a anti-climax.

Then if that's the case, the season should end with Arya and the Hound

Just remembered. I forgot what happened when Jaime was taken and couldn't remember for the life of me. This next episode is going to be awesome.

painful though, he has an amazing story. and theon too, maybe my favourite character in the series.


this was a fking awesome episode. jojen reed is perfectly cast, his eyes are nuts. agreed with a bunch of people in this thread though, i love the actor playing mance but it's nothing like i was expecting. too much raging masculinity in the way that role is being played, instead of the sorta enlightened schemer i was expecting. ah well

loved loved loved the joff/marg scene, she played him like an instrument and it was heartily enjoyable to watch. olenna is everything i wanted her to be too... it's what i love about what martin does, you get so many different vantage points of the politics of the realm, judgments of the various strategies taken by all the parties, you've got to read it relatively critically to actually figure out what's truly going on. the way she calls out her son and then renly for their fateful strategies is like a breath of fresh air.

i also hope they continue the format of only keying in on the dany plot every other episode, i think something was lost in the first few seasons when she wasn't really doing much but they gave her 5-10 minutes almost every episode anyway. i guess just because she's hot lol, no complaints here

im liking the red wizard dude a lot too, thoros i think

Ned tells Robert that if he were to meet the Dothraki in open combat he'd for sure lose. I don't know how much of it was an exaggeration but to a dude like Ned it's pretty telling.

on an open plain the cavalry would win. dothraki have the best cavalry there is soooo...

air support (dragons)> cavalry (dothraki) > armored units (knights)/formation units (unsullied)>berserkers (wildlings)
