Whatever it may be, I would love a season go GOT where they show the War of the Usurper. Most interesting story right there.

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

Everybody is glad he's gone, but I'm not. He was just an amazing villian.

Lets talk about Brans visions since for the most part even for book readers its pure speculation.

Thats the second time they have shown the throne room with snow in it, maybe at the end of it nobody sits on the throne?

The dragon flying over kings landing was it a vision from the past or future?Its summer when the dragon flys over it but the throne is covered in snow.

it has been speculated that that wasn't actually snow, but ash from being burned by dragonfire.

The Dragon in the vision might be Balerion the Dread.

Mind you, it wasn't until Maegor the Cruel that the Red Keep was completed but, I think Balerion was still alive by then.

or maybe its snow because its winter and the white walkers wipe out everyone. That's my theory for the end of the series. By the time Dany lands in Westeros everyone there is going to be wiped the f*ck out. Perfect troll anticlimax

That's right, I meant he hates that instead of his handsome fierce warrior son it's his ugly imp son who gets the GOT smarts.

Who among the non-reader viewers remembers the Melisandre/Gendry sex scene? You might wanna review that bit.

Balon Greyjoy the next to fall? I wouldnt even recognize that guy if they showed him next ep, looks too similar to Walder Frey+like 5 other characters on the show.

there's a lot of interesting events with the greyjoys in the novel but the show has basically bypassed everything

The angle they chose for that scene didn't show it clearly enough, imo.

But, yeah... I did catch that the second time through and I assumed the book was something incredibly valuable/rare.


In the books Tywins brother Kevan is impressed with the book and one of the Tyrells tell Joffrey "Perhaps your grace did not know....that was one of only 4 copies of that book in all seven Kingdoms illustrated in Keiths own hand" and Joffrey is all "Well...now there are three".

**** that kid.
