What a great actor this Jack Gleesen was, he was 100% suited to portray Joffrey and he delivered big time. Respect!

He really is amazing. Sadly I read somewhere recently he's saying he's done with acting after this...I dunno why.

Joffrey easily.

Ramsey is just emotionally damaged due to the way his father treated him, and it turned him into a sadist.

Joffrey's psychopathy is on a whole other level.

So satisfying.

Loved the shocked expressions of the Tyrells, Sansa, Varys, etc during that midget battle.

So what should HBO do to keep us interested?

2015 - Season 5: They will finish eventually the book Dance with Dragons and feast for crows

2016-2017- season 6 and 7: Winds of Winter will be released by then . It is apparently a very detailed book with a lot of crucial events, therefore I am guessing HBO could squeeze in 2 seasons of storyline.

But what does HBO do now? A hope for Spring might come 2- 3-4 years after Winds of Winter

2018- Season 8- Aegon The Conqueror's quest and wars to claim the 7 KIngdoms

2019- Season 9- Robert Baratheon's rebellion ( this is the most interesting story in the books for me)

2020- Season 10- A Hope for Spring book


HBO is apparently making an insane amount of money with Game of Thrones. No reason not to keep it going until the 10th season if they make so much. Or, would they really take a 2-3-4 years hiatus until a Hope for Spint is delivered?

who would have thought that a Dothraki wedding would actually seem tame compared to westeros ones

Terrific episode, great to see what I assume is a Stark girl(Sanza) finally growing strong enough to take Jeoffrey out.

so guys what should i do.
i watched every episode of the Game of Thrones so far and all been great. but heres my problem. i assume the books, like every time, are much better than the series, right??
normally i read books first before watching a movie, like with lord of the rings. should i read these books first or is it still great to watch the series and then read the books and read some new things that werent in the series??
i totally enjoy being caught by surprise in the series as you never knows who is gonna die and how the plot develops
so, will it be great to read the books even after i watched the entire series ??

So, as a non-book reader, who is king? Since Jeoffrey was never supposed to be (incest) wasn't it originally supposed to be Stannis? And now won't it still have to be Stannis? But Tywin would never allow him to take the throne right? Would the populace have a revolution if the true king isn't put to power?

Hm.
