Yes.

Ok. Spoiler(The final scene Sensa is smiling because the sister to the knight of flowers wants and gets to marry King Joffery. Is it because she thinks she gets to go home or because she has a scheme cooking?)

Good lord I now fully understand why everyone rails on book four. Im just starting it now, but it cant hope to be anywhere CLOSE to three. I'm still in awe and disbelief of everything that just transpired in the last thousand pages. if what everyone says is true, the next thousand is going to feel like watching griese falter and TD tear an acl after 97/98 incredibleness.

Im still trying to wrap my head around the epilogue of 3 with donderrion, the riders, and the "hooded woman". Wtf!?!?!!!

Oh, and another thing...glancing through the table of contents...where are all of the characters?

A man cannot wait for season three to air. A man is going to read the books in the meantime.

Book 3 took me two weeks of casual reading to finish. Book 4 took me a month because of all of the yawns.

Originally book 4 and 5 were to be one book. I read an interview with GRRM and he said he got through half the story and it was 1000 pages so he split it up. All the characters you don't see in book 4 are in book 5 a great deal. Book 4 and half of book 5 take place during the same time period and it all comes back together at the end of 5.

UNTIL THE END OF BOOK 5 LEAVES YOU GOING ?

Book 6 needs to come out because this series went to the crapper in my opinion leaving so many open story lines!

And here he is discussing splitting up book 4 and 5. He jokes that we can mesh them together if we want. I'm surprised no one on the net has done that yet. I would have much rather read that monstrosity. I hope he never splits his books again.

Let's cut him some slack. Sometimes writing incessantly about football for no end result takes priority over creation.

She's happy because she will no longer be wed to a psychopath who has abused her physically, sexually, mentally and emotionally for months.

Seems reason enough to me. =)

Have you guys seen this? Now, I know real life politics does not belong in this thread, but it doesn't belong in Game of Thrones either.

Bull****.

If I weren't such a fan of the books/show I would stop watching. This really disgusts me.

Ludicrous. If I weren't such a fan of the books/show I would stop watching. This really disgusts me though.

That is really funny though.

You can cut it both ways. When you work in a prop department you're looking to save money. You could argue all the heads on the pikes were good men killed by a wicked little bastard. In that sense it suggests he was one of the good guys.

But yes, if Obama's head was up there, there would be a firestorm.

Who cares... It could have been Michael Jacksons head or Lady Di. It does not matter. It means nothing. Its a head. It is a prop. Unless you all look specifically at each face as it tells a major part of the book or series, then Id say lets not be so uptight. It changes nothing in your world or the show.

It's no big deal....just some dip-**** making a political statement.


Anyone that thinks this wasn't a political statement is on shrooms.

It was a tongue in cheek response. My point is they were grabbing props and that was it. It wasn't a political statement one way or the other.
