I'm surprised no one has spoken about the Red Wedding yet. That was intense. I haven't read the book so I don't know what is coming, but I found it hard to think of how they will continue next.... I suppose the plethora of story lines will definitely keep it afloat. I've personally always liked shows/books that were not afraid to get rid of characters... keeps the viewer/reader on the edge.

Season 4 will be fantastic, as the Red Wedding was about half way through the 3rd book. Season 5 is where the show will begin to differ from the books much more and it will be interesting to see what the show does from there.
I had been waiting for someone to post about that episode... brutal. I had to apologize to the wife because although I knew it was coming, I had no idea it was going to be so graphic. I correctly figured TRW was going to be episode 9, so I assume that [spoiler]Joffrey's death will be in the season finale, along with the accusation toward Tyrion and his imprisonment pending execution.[/spoiler] I have heard that they may combine Books 4 & 5 into a season since they occured simultaneously. At any rate, they're going to catch up to Martin pretty soon and either have to table the series for a while, or add in some DBZ-worthy filler!

I am sure they know who dies, who kills them, who wins the throne, what alliances are made, etc. I believe they will combine Books 4 & 5 into a single season and pick and choose which characters they want to focus on. My guess is that the Martell perspective is pretty much completely removed and the Grevjoy storyline is lessened greatly. [spoiler] I forget how much time are between The Red Wedding and Joffrey's death, but I could see that being the cliff hanger of the season. I could also see them showing Cat being revived as the season cliff hanger and save Joffrey's death for early next season.[/spoiler]
It would sadden me greatly if the Martells were cut out entirely. They're pretty much the replacement "sympathetic protagonist" House with Stark down for the count. And I really want to see Oberyn do his thing!
[QUOTE=Aereas;347462] And I really want to see Oberyn do his thing![/QUOTE] This. Oberyn is my favorite character after Jaime. I've been more excited for that fight than I ever was for the Red Wedding.
[QUOTE=JL81790;347793]This. Oberyn is my favorite character after Jaime. I've been more excited for that fight than I ever was for the Red Wedding.[/QUOTE] I am sure Oberyn will still be seen since his story occurs in King's Landing, but those down in Dorne might just be talked about and not actually shown much. We will see where they go with it though.
Every time I hear the theme song, I yearn to learn the cello or maybe even pick up the viola again from my highschool days. It is so beautiful and melodic. In fact I might put the hunt for the sheet music on my to-do list for tomorrow! I know everyone always snobbishly says, "The books are better than the show!", but that is the genuine truth in this case. The TV show is amazing, so just imagine how great the books are (to those fans of the show who haven't read them yet... like my boyfriend). Grr. :( If Martin dies before he finishes writing, I'm gonna kill him.

But rises again harder and stronger.
Is it worth it to watch this show from the start?
[QUOTE=RMD1;364282]Is it worth it to watch this show from the start?[/QUOTE] Abso-******ing-lutely!
[QUOTE=Bacchus;364294]Abso-******ing-lutely![/QUOTE] I think I may give it a ****. Hopefully HBO has them all on demand.
[QUOTE=RMD1;364300]I think I may give it a ****. Hopefully HBO has them all on demand.[/QUOTE] I am pretty sure they do. Just a warning, the first few episodes are slow paced because it is mostly character development.
I wouldn't say the books are strictly superior... on the tv show I can at least sort of look past the boring Bran storylines but I feel like I'm cheating if I skip them in the books so I have to muck through them. They also somehow manage to be a bit more exciting on screen than in the books. So +1 for the show in that regard. My HBO On Demand only has season 3 right now... but maybe HBO Go has them? (Which you should have access to if you can get to on demand).
[QUOTE=TheFeedMachi;364303]I am pretty sure they do. Just a warning, the first few episodes are slow paced because it is mostly character development.[/QUOTE] I expected that. I usually give any show 3 episodes. If I can't get into it by then I just give up.

They usually put all of the old seasons up to get people to watch the upcoming one.
All three seasons are up on HBO Go.
[QUOTE=Bacchus;364307]All three seasons are up on HBO Go.[/QUOTE] Sweet! Thanks.

[QUOTE=Bacchus;402666]Obligatory: [video=youtube_share;rHJoj9IqeKg]http://youtu.be/rHJoj9IqeKg[/video][/QUOTE] Arya Stark is dead? Thank god. She was the worst with the way she treated Joffrey in season 1.
I think it's been a great season so far. Partial bias on my part because it's been a Jaime heavy season and I'm a Jaime and Bronn fan. The fact that they got a scene together, which doesn't happen in the books, was awesome.
A little late to the game, but I just started reading the books and now I'm hooked! I'm going to pick up the first three seasons and binge watch once I finish reading.
I really hope I'm not overhyping myself for tonight's episode...but having read the books I expect it to be amazing.
Ever since Tyrion's speech at the trial, I have been all aboard this crazy train. Hoping for an amazing one tonight.
