The casting for this show is damn near perfect. I can't really think of many that have been miscasted. Maybe Dondarrion?

Sadly my favorite plots from the books happen north of the wall and I am bored to death and dissapointed with the recreation so far this season. Ghost is somehow not with Jon? Gianstbane isnt jovial, and for some reason leading Jon over the wall instead of the earless king. Sam hasnt earned his nickname?(though that could still happen). Heres hoping that the action north of the wall improves tenfold, Im honestly not to sold on the KBtW.
Sam's nickname is coming.

The fight at the wall is coming.

Sex with Ygritte is coming.

Relax man

No, they're on their way to Qyburn at Harrenhal.

No, they're on their way to Qyburn at Harrenhal.

I remember being a little geeked out when they introduced Qyburn a couple of episodes back. I had to explain to my brother why he would be important soon.

Also, can anyone who has read the books more recently than I clarify this point, the entire Theon escape fake-out subplot that ran through the first 4 episodes, was that completely created from scratch, or was there some background mention of it in the third book? I just remember Robb receiving vague promises that Theon was being painfully flayed alive by Ramsay Bolton and that was it.

'Reek' remembers it when he comes back into the story. All they did here was show it instead of mention it later.

I've mentioned it before, but I am not really in love with Lena Headey's Cersei. I think she plays her too quiet, hunched over and reserved. I don't read her that way and don't see her that way. This is someone who is desperate for attention and affection. I see her stronger vocally and physically - not actually larger, but stronger body language. I also don't see why they couldn't find a real blonde. Headey is ok, but her performances aren't very powerful. The closest I've liked is when she threatens Littlefinger and when she's speaking to Sansa during the siege of King's Landing. I wish she was like that all the time.

To each their own. I think she's a great fit and amazing at it.

Of corse not, did you see him grasp aimlessly with his stump for his sword when he was kicked down. Jamie's journey will be tough, because so much of his evolution is internal dialogue.


In terms of Danny's rise, awesome!

I can't wait for the Red Viper.

The only casting that I have disliked so far has been Mance Raydor. The books really set him up as this character with a lot of roguish charm and flair. Ciaran Hinds plays him as just another grumpy old man beyond the wall.

I think Sansa is annoying, but her character is annoying, not the casting. I have to agree that Lena Headey's Cersei is pretty awesome. I haven't read the books, but I don't trust her one bit, which I think is the point.

The greatest tragedy in the show is I think we'll never see the Khaleesi's boobies again. We may see Emilia Clarke's at some point in her career, but never the Khaleesi's. Let's mourn that.

Alas, this is why people should read the books. My favorite characters are even more awesome when you see their thoughts.

I definitely disagree with this and think that the natural progression will prove you wrong. Cersei wasn't as strong a character in the early going as she was after gaining more confidence later on - except in the instances you mention, when she was drunk during the siege. It really wasn't until she felt threatened by Margaery and the Tyrell family that she started to really spread her wings and flex her power openly.

With this last episode, we start to see the seed of her thoughts about her place in her family, and I think with each episode, we'll see that seed grow and get stronger, and she'll become a very powerful presence in the show.

Finally some action here in season 3. After finishing the book last year I've been very impatient for this season... I read the "info" for next weeks episode and I am excited. I shouldn't of done that. haha

I replayed the last 10 minutes of this past episode about 10 times. It was bad arse. Dracarys!

Martin doesn't say she's hunched over all the time like an old crone barely whispering her words. If anything that makes more sense later when she puts on weight because she's become a drunk.

Headey's Cercei is basically exactly how I imagined her while reading. I've loved the casting so far, but do agree that Mance is a bit stuffy. SPOILER: ( Maybe we'll get to see another side of him when he's not leading thousands upon thousands of people away from one certain death towards another.

On a different note, what is going on with Roz/Varys/Olenna discovering Littlefinger's plans for Sansa? Change in plot coming?

I took it more as she is trying to quietly contain her rage at the incompetence around her.

Headey's Cersei is spot on. she's a quiet dose of lethal poison.
it takes almost everything you have no to want to see her meet her end. at the same time she's so evil it's kinda hot.
