The size of other armies are not really stated but Dany seems to have an advantage. But what story gets told with such obvious advantages? Its not like the night walkers can do much damage against them either. There has to be a flaw. Maybe her morality: An army of transvestites would really confuse Dany.

Theon is a mouse on a wheel... with and alligator underneath it. Sansa is a human chess piece. The Tyrells are the best chess players. Tyrion has the wits to match them but Daddy'O is too busy undermining him.

Best show of the series.
Varys' point was patience, I don't think the warlock had been like that for long. I believe Varys recently has managed to capture him using his hard earned influence. If you noticed his mouth was stitched shut so he could not shout for help while he was being shipped to Varys.

yeah my impression was that the warlock was a recent acquisition. varys greeted him as such, they hadn't seen each other since he was a child.

Thank you


when we talked about the flaming sword earlier i was referring to events that happened in the book that wasn't in the show. (I think it was Jaimie) talking about past tourneys that were held and how Thoros won with a gimmicky and "ridiculous" flaming sword. we weren't talking about the Hound's upcoming trial.

I think Tywin is smarter then Tyrion, and Littlefinger and Varys are the most powerful people in the show, they controlling everything without anyone realizing it.



You have no idea. Varys has been plotting for 20 years. Littlefinger too. Im not gonna spoil anything even though the show will change it....but...really. Its just them and people they manipulate for their own reasons. And I mean everyone...everywhere.

Jesus... my favorite character (Theon) has been getting raped lately, seriously put him to death rather than torturing him or set him free already The guy who killed Craster has the GOAT voice I love the whole Khaleesi and dragon scene but my favorite scene in the episode was with Varys and Tyrion

I don't think it did. I think they changed it for dramatic effect for the show. I noticed it watching Sunday night.

The story about Thoros and the Flaming Sword happens when Ned and Co. arrive at Kings Landing, and they throw that Name Day Party for Joffrey, the same one where Loras beats The Mountain in the joust using the mare in heat. In the books Thoros wins the free for all event using his flaming sword. I believe it's Ned who points out to Arya that it's not magic, just a trick using the wildfire on his sword.

We later saw another Free for all that Brienne won beating Loras at Renly's camp.

Those things seem like a really ineffecient use of your soldiers, just having them kill each other for amusement.

Just re-watched the episode and I absolutely love how they displayed Dany's arsenal in the final scene. Horde of Dothraki, 8,000 Unsullied warriors, 3 mothafvcking dragons, and 2 Westerosi Knights/bodyguards (1 of which is arguably the best swordsman ever).

Good God...

, 8k unsullied and 3 dragons is like the Miami heat trio in their first year. You can't say she's a premadonna any longer. As soon as those dragons mature, kings landing is in for an ass kicking.

Are the books worth reading? I got bored before i even finished the first one because there is too much chatter. At the end of the day, I don't give a sht about Sansa or Samwell
