Just a bunch of sleep-deprived, dirty men and women heading South to get warm for the winter.

The white walkers have not been explained unless you take the red priests word that they are the soldiers of the god of darkness and cold who isnt supposed to even be mentioned. I wont consider that a spoiler since it isnt really telling you anything. Its just....talk. The red priests(Thoros....lady m....a third one I wont bring up) have theories on everything. I doubt they know any better than the regular people who just consider them....magic. Or demons.

Its possible Craster knows something though. He at least has a deal with them. They show that even in the show. He gives them his sons and they leave him alone.

I suspect Bran will know at some point....though explaining why would be a spoiler. You can see in the show that hes....something. Three eyed crow talks to him in dreams and shit. Hes more special than he appears. That much should be obvious to show watchers.

There are two surviving Targaryens: Dany and Aemon Targaryen (the blind old Maester at the Wall). However, most people have forgotten or just don't know that he's a Targaryen because he's been removed from the rest of Westeros for so long.

There are *rumors* of other Targaryens that are still alive... that's all I'll say.

I watched that final scene with Tywin, Tyrion & Cersei like five times. Cersei keeps getting hotter and hotter each season. I hope she does a nude scene.

i dunno if its just her character or the actress herself but i get NOTHIN from cersei. myrish swamp is right haha


this season is really shaping up. there was one episode so far, forget which one, that didn't have me completely drawn in for all 55 minutes. every other one has been terrific, not a lot of filler, plenty of really long character developing scenes. the blackwater bay episode was like that last season where there was hardly a scene that lasted less than 5-6 minutes it felt.... this season feels filled with those

the jamie hot tub scene was ridiculously good. like woah. the only scene that didn't have a great payoff this time was the jorah/barristan one but thats obviously brewing to major events so das cool

im pumped

you've read the books i take it? as far as events happening in the real world correlating with religion, not to mention supernatural devices like thoros raising the dead and milesendre's premonitions in the fire, the red gods seem to be on the money. and if the title of the series as a whole is any indication, they may well be the true prophets. but then the faceless men philosophy and their conception of 'god' makes a lot of sense too.

i cant believe how long we still have to wait lol

in the books it was a character called the goat, head of the bloody murmers. they are villainous band of mercenaries. it seems like the show wrote them out and it was done by one of bolton's henchmen.

Yes...in like 4 seasons. But I bet they tone it down. That was like...45 minutes of total nudity...

One of Roose Boltons henchmen.

Roose Bolton.

Roose Bolton.

Hes one of Robbs main allys...but he has a reputation for being cold and dangerous. Hes kinda Lord Twyin minus the crazy wealth and some of the brutality.

Tell me about it. That monologue and Gyp Rosetti's 'prayer' from Boardwalk Empire are the two that scream EMMY REEL from this year

"Lecherous little stump".

That's gotta hurt even if they were acting.

As a matter of fact I read that Charles Dance apologized to Peter Dinklage after every insult they wrote for him, saying he didn't mean it.
