“Your father,” said Prince Oberyn, “may not live forever.”

The King’s Hand was rotting visibly. His face had taken on a greenish tinge, and his eyes were deeply sunken, two black pits. Fissures had opened in his cheeks, and a foul white fluid was seeping through the joints of his splendid gold-and-crimson armor to pool beneath his body.

...and of course the smell.

Dude, I completely missed that on my first read through. Awesome.


SPOILER: (

No wonder Tywin was in the crapper and appeared to be visibly struggling when Tyrian popped and arrow in his @ss.

Seriously, that is one thing that I truly regret losing in the TV adaptation. All the subtlety is gone. In the books you have to pay attention to realize how savvy and ambitious Margery Tyrel is. In the show, they kind of smack you over the head with it. I understand that they have to play to the cheap seats, but I really wish they would do more to reward those who are watching carefully.

I still think Cercei is poorly played. She seems so lethargic and depressed. Cercei reads like an angry spitfire who flies off the handle. Lena Headey plays her depressed and drab.

Well, in the books you get to hear her inner monologue.

NO kidding. I feel bad for people who haven't read the books... they have no idea what they are in for in season 3. They will do it GRAVE injustice unless they make it at least 12 epeisodes long. So much happens in book 3. So much awesomeness.

I hated book 4, so looking forward to how they handle that. My guess it will more enjoyable watching book 4 than reading it. They'll "HBO" it up a bit.

More boobies!

There is one death in particular I can't wait to see. And when it happens I will shed tears of happiness.

More boobies, more wang or GTFO.

I hope the plan is still to do two seasons (20eps) for book 3. It's easily the best book, and had so much happen it would be a travesty to try doing it in only 10 eps.

I don't know the episode count, but they are supposedly splitting up the 3rd season

I hope its more like season 3A and 3B with a short break in between the two. I remember Entourage doing that at least once.

It will involve food, I'm sure. Just spitballing here, of course.

Another good breaking point would be when Jon becomes the leader of the white walkers and randomly declares war on Pentos.

It will be red I am sure. But.....SPOILERS:...I doubt they use the part where John becomes the WW leader. I think more and more it would be pertinent to where Khaleesi does the nasty with her dragon- although I am not sure they will show it, but they did show other nudity so you never know- and see the birth of the human dragon thing (drakgano)-.......SPOILER END)- I think part is a little more pivital and would leave people hanging on their seats for the second half.

Use f'n spoiler tags people. That's what they're there for. (No, not for me. Just being considerate; amazing concept.)

Is it really that big of a spoiler to learn that Tyrion trains Nymeria and rides her into battles against the Dornish?

That's a ...natural cut off point for the story in the Seven kingdoms, but what about at the wall and in the east?

SPOILER: (
Also, where does Joffrey's assassination fit in? Think they'll change the timeline a bit and push it back to the "climax" of the second part of the season?

Huge spoiler

SPOILER: ( Joffrey's death would work to front the gap, more as a cathartic moment than a wtf one... then completely shake people up with the RW early in the fourth season. I would be happy with that. Danny aquiring the unsullied and meeting Selmy in S3, the rest in four. Sam and the NW rout at the FotFM + some John and Yrgritte's journey to the wall in S3, the rest in 4, oh wait...Bran has to meet the Reed's and Journey north, the Bastard of Bolton, not to mention Jaime Lannister and the BC, ****...I hope they can do it justice. )

Btw, trolls are trolling on this page.

Real spoiler below, do not read unless read book 3...



SPOILER -If they do it with Joff though then they would have a lot to fill in afterwards, the hearing for tryion and getting the viper to fight the mountain and such. I just think that would be to premature to end it with that. I could see it happening mid way through the season and then leaving it hanging where sansa is on the run....I forgot my timelines a bit here too, but when tyrion used his cross bow, was that near the end of 3 or middle? I was thinking it was middle and that would seem to be a more likely cause for the wtf? Joff is dead midway through, then at the break tryion offs his dad and then splits. Who knows. Spoiler end.....

Man I cant wait, but I love the idea, however unlikley that they would do season 3, which ends about his time of the year, and then finish season it up sometime in the fall. It wont happen but it would be great.

This blew my mind and answers a few questions that I had. This book is so well thought out and written, it's amazing to me. Just when you think there is a plot hole, or something doesn't make sense, you find something hidden (in plain sight) that explains it.
