Yeah, that guy is the heir to the throne from the last dynasty but his family got over thrown so him and his sister are in exile. He wants the barbarians to give him an army suo he can win his thrown back

Is there anything more to Snow and the Eldest Stark boy? I thought Snow was the outcast bastard but when he left for the wall it seemed like they were buddies. Is that just because they are or will there be more character development with them?

Didn't notice this thread before I made my post in the "what shows are you watching" thread.

I will refrain from reading anything in this thread 'till I've watched through episode 3.

From what I remember he's close to all the Stark children (not sure about Sansa), I think the only antagonistic relationship is with Catelyn.

So their father was killed by the guy who is banging his sister the queen (when the lil boy caught them)? Some sick stuff man. Seems like the dwarf (their brother) is suspicous of their relationship

yeah, the guy who was banging his sister used to be part of the old kingsguard but he betrayed the old king and stabbed him in the back when it was apparent robert was going to win the civil war. and yeah, the dwarf is one of the best characters in the books.

this should might help keep everyone in order. http://bloximages.newyork1.vip.townn...e681a0.pdf.pdf

I love the dwarf character, white text....

Episode 2 Ned Stark and Ser Jamie Lannister had a convo about Ned Stark father. Was he saying the King he ended up "backstabbing" killed Ned Starks father?

The queen is a vicious b!tch

Also what exactly is The Wall?

no, the old king murdered ned's dad and brother in the middle of court, with 500 people there watching and doing nothing, jaimie included. ned is pissed because noone did anything and jaimie just sided with the rebels when it was obvious the rebels would win

I'm caught up on all 3 episodes. This is really good. Arya Stark = has heart. Joan of Arc.

I will try to avoid posting my opinions in this thread as possible to avoid any unintentional spoilers, but I would clarify stuff now and then without giving out anything not know to the non-reader viewers.

The last king-the last targaryen king, the mad king- was extremely paranoid because of his madness and cooked them in their Armor, hence the screams.
