Game of Thrones (spoiler-free zone)

A few have suggested it, might as well test the waters. The idea is to give people who haven't read the books a safe place to talk about the show.

A few quick ground rules:
  • No Spoilers!!!!! for upcoming episodes.
  • Larger Song of Ice and Fire discussion should be limited to the other thread although I think a tiny bit of book delving to fill in holes should be okay (example of this would be talking about Catelyn and her treatment of the wolves in the novel, which was alluded to on TV but never really made clear...)
  • Everything that happened that week is fair game once an episode airs. So if you don't watch on Sunday night, I'd stay outta here until you do...

Perhaps I don't actually want the answer to that, though. If there even is an answer yet.
Given this is a non-spoiler thread, I will just say that there is some mystery about Lyanna's death, it is not really clear yet in the books whether she went willingly with Rhaegar or was taken (Robert clearly believed she was taken and started a war over it that he won to become king), and that story and the resolution of the mystery could play a major role in events to come in the series.

The show has not really addressed it in any detail at all yet, but if you read the first book, you get a sense of it (even in the book it is only hinted at and not revealed, which is par for the course for GRRM and this series which is one of the reasons the books are so great, you really have to pay attention and pick up on subtle hints, he doesn't just lay everything out there for you).

I'll be surprised if GRRM ever lets us see an overt answer to that question.

He has said before in interviews that the question/mystery would be answered or revealed eventually in the books, so I think it will come into play at some point.

So it was Littlefinger and Grandmother Tyrell. I was right about Littlefingers motives as well.

So that's how White Walkers are made. Can't say I thought they did that with the babies.

And it seems, barring some other kind of reveal, it was Littlefinger and Olenna who conspired to kill Joffrey. I guess both had their reasons, although Littlefinger's are more opaque and long-term focused than Olenna's.

What a surprise that Bran's plan to journey north with no real protection beyond a direwolf among groups of murderous wildlings, mutineers, and White Walkers didn't work out. Looks like Jon Snow is going to have to go up there and save him (and stop Bolton's spy at the same time). You'd think he had enough on his plate already.

Also looks like Jaime is going to try to help Tyrion out of that mess. He tellingly progressed even further away from his sister and father this episode by sending Brienne out to save Sansa and giving her that sword at the same time.

I don't think it is the lack of biters that makes the walking dead shit. It is the lack of everything else like actors and storyline.

I admit I still watch it but only because it is the only thing like it on TV. If any other network had done the show I believe it would have turned out much better. Everything about the show just screams 'B' TV.

Trying to read stuff on GoT online and people are losing their SHIT about Jaime's 'rape' last episode. They're still going on about it for paragraphs this week.

TWD is a decent enough show (albeit one with wasted potential), but it's not even close to the caliber of GoT. They're not really comparable at all.

And was this supposedly a "slow" episode? I found just about every scene fascinating in its own way as usual.
