Yep - my fear is that he's going to "pull a Jordan" and die on us before he finishes.

IMHO, from reading his "not a blog" over the last couple 3 years, he's bored s#!tless with writing about Westros. He's nowhere near done and he's out of gas. But his incredibly high standards won't allow him to just mail it in.

If you closely pay attention... you can tell Talisa is not telling the truth about who she really is. My guess is that she could really be Jeyne Westerling.

The promotional info I've seen talks about Jeyne being cast, so either you are right and/or Talisa is just there to help the viewer understand that Robb is promised to a Frey and that not following through with that commitment is not a good thing for Robb.

Yup... they are just trying to drama it up a notch.

Could be... but Kat's intervention yesterday showed that Talisa was keeping her real name under wraps.

Maybe it's just me but Daenerys' story line bores the hell out of me. It did in the books and it does so even more in the show.

SPOILER: (
Yeah, Martin dropped the ball when the planned 3 books became 6-8. He had to figure out how to keep Dany away from Westeros until whatever he has planned for the climax occurs.

I've always assumed Dany and the White Walkers would invade at about the same time, and she would end up defending the seven kingdoms instead of conquering it.

I find her story easier to tolerate in the series, possibly due to the large amount of skin often visible, but yeah, I find her and Jon Snow's arcs to be the least compelling over all as they tend to be so far removed from the rest of the political wranglings in Westeros. This all changes eventually, slogging through the Daenerys and Jon Snow chapters in book two were just a chore.

I agree. However Jon Snow's story starts picking up a lot faster than little Dany. They did such a great job casting all these characters!

Someone else asked this on another board. But we cant answer. I would say go with what your gut is telling you.


This episode slightly let me down in the fact that I was expecting khaleesi to go to the undying in this episode...Instead they just built it up that much more. Same with John snows part and with Tryion and the impending battle.



SPOILER_KINDA SORTA- If you havent read the books then maybe dont read this.I think with the build up from khaleesi and john and tyrion that -Theon will fade out now I think and jaime and brienne will pick up in place. Aryas part will slowly fade out too and then the remaining of the season will pick up with the battle of wildfire and denaryus and then finish with bran and robb and jaime.

People reading the books were left with exactly the same question.

If this was an ordinary story, you could assume (99% of the time) that they were imposters. But with Martin's willingness to kill off anyone, anytime in any way he likes ... you just can't count on anything.

I'm getting more and more worried they are going to significantly change the climax at King's landing. So far only some of the things that should have been hinted at as in the books have been hinted about.

They might have to change it for SFX budget reasons.

What I mean is:
SPOILER: (
Tyrion should have already reassigned all the forges to start building chain links by now.
)

If you're right that they'll skip the chain, it'll be interesting to see how they stage the battle as the chain was integral in trapping Stannis's fleet on the part of the river set aflame by wildfire.

Also I wonder how they handle Davos's arc after the BotB without the chain/pileup of ships there to help him survive/get stranded.

I didn't like this last episode. Way too much time last 2 episodes with Snow and the girl walking around in the frozen North. All we learned from that could have been done in one 5 minute segment. BORING!

So there is only 1 episode left? Totally crap when does Walking Dead start!

3 episodes left. Plenty of time for a roaring finish to season 2, and a setup for season 3.

I enjoyed the last episode, thought it was one of the better ones as of late. I'm pretty loyal to the vision of the books, but I thought some of the liberties the show has taken as of late are excellent improvements in terms of more interesting story arcs. There's still far too much that is left out to appease me, but I find the shows interesting to watch, rather than infuriating, because I'm not entirely sure what will happen next. However, this series does not even remotely approach the overall magnificance of the novels due to so much material and back story omitted. And they really need to stop making both Littlefinger and Jon Snow look like bumbling doofuses.
