Damn, so many hot babes on this show that need to get their tits out. Dunno who I want to see first, before it was the ginger eskimo chick but this slave girl is catching up to her.
I thought she could understand him too at first, but it'd be a pretty long reveal if that doesn't play out until the next episode. I don't see a point in playing it out that long when the only real payoff would just be a quick scene of her telling him off or something.

And Blackfish seems like a baller.

I saw what happened, but I didn't get to hear what they were talking about. Its funny, when I just started watching the show I hated Jamie for pushing Brann out the window and being so stuck up, but his character has grew on me the past few episodes. Feel bad for him

Tyrion is by far my favorite character, very interesting and brings a little bit of humor to the show.

I think whats going to happen is Khaleesi rips him off and takes the dragon back and sacks the city after buying every soldier from the guy.

So they had to make the audience really hate the slaver so that Dany doesnt look evil when she rips him off. SO they made the slaver and asshole.

I think he's really funny though, one of the best parts of the season.

Oh there's no way that dude's keeping the dragon all clear. She doesn't own the dragons or anything, they're her children basically and they chose her pretty much.

What's ****ed up though, she was giving the slaver the remaining Dothraki? the hell man, talk about selling them out.

Everything has a point in this series. It's just never clear until the whole situation plays out. Wait a few episodes and then look back and re evaluate. It's the easiest way to understand the story with out reading the books.

For example, Season 1:

When Ned Stark was taken captive by the Queen, what was everyone's initial thought? He's going to get off with out death, and be sent to the wall.

Shocking that they actually killed him off right? It was the right thing to do.

In a situation where Ned lives and goes to the wall...theres no where else you can take the story. He goes to the wall the north rallies behind him and theres war.

In reality Ned Stark is killed and makes the story that much better not because of the shock value, but because of the significance.

NED STARK was the point in Westeros that held order together. If you go back and re evaluate, everything that has happened, has its roots in Ned Starks death. When he was killed, so was order in Westeros.


To sum it up, if you try to hypothesize with this show you are likely to get confused. Wait for an entire situation to play its self out, look back at it, and you will see what the purpose of each detail was.

I have not read anything for the past few pages, so if this question was asked, please link me to the answer.

During this episode, Caliese (spelling prob wrong on that one) was walking and talking with the servant she just bought, along with the soldiers, for one dragon.

The servant said " var-la-ma-goo-les" to her.

Isn't that the exact same thing Jaquin told the young girl to say if she ever needed to see him?

Is there a connection here?

Well if she changes faces, and keeps her body - she's a real keeper. But then again they can be warlock's just the same. Khaleesi is a magnet for mysteriously powered beings and things, as well as fast talking evilish black businessmen (got my eye on that) ripe to be taken by the dragon lady.

once you get to hear his side of the story and why he's done some of the things that he has you do feel some empathy for him. that's what is great about the books, there are very few black and white characters, most of them are shades of grey. some people you absolutely hate early on you may start to understand better later. then again, we will always have joffrey to hate
