    Everyone forgets about Baby Stark, and then suddenly there he is, like the girl from The Ring. Kid's the jump scare of The Game of Thrones.

    Tonks did NOT click for me until just now! I was like "What?! OH YEAH!" Explains why I like her so much.

    Yeah I didn't realize it was her until I looked her up on imdb, and then I couldn't stop seeing her as Tonks, haha.

    So, HBO is coming out with a Game of Thrones Beer. Which at first sounded like an awful idea, but then I found out that Ommegang is the brewery chosen for the job. All is forgiven now.

    Finally finished reading "A Dance With Dragon". All I can say without spoiling anything is AAAAAUGH.

    Now for the Great Wait. That's balanced by the fact that I can now finally read Game of Thrones/Song of Ice and Fire-related stuff without worrying about spoilers. Which is incredibly liberating.

    So.....
    What did everyone think?
    As a statement of intent it worked pretty well.

    Bolton made my skin crawl, and Tywin's chat with Tyrion was excellent.....

    *nod* I thought it was pretty good and it'll be interesting to see how the writers retcon the reveal of the White Walkers last season. Their appearance was panned and so the current theory is that the ones on horseback are just weird wights and the WWs have yet to be seen.
  5.  (9805.13)
    That theory is bs concocted by fanboys who didn't like that the look deviated from the description in the book. No retcon is going to happen.

    tonks has an awesome band....


    thats all i got right now....

    Ok, just for starters:

    Why did the make Sam say he didn't send the ravens, when despite his cowardice he clearly DOES do this? Is he not witless and ineffective enough for the TV people, do they think their viewers will explode at the first sign of a nuanced character? For that matter, why did they change the reason John gave to Mance for wanting to join the wildlings? I can understand the insta-reveal of Arstan as Barristan, as dragging that on for too long in a visual medium would have been a bit pointless, but where's Strong Belwas?!

    It wasn't long enough I need MOAR.

    Ciaran Hinds though. GREAT choice for Mance.

    Too bad about that retcon being a fanboy theory. There was a lot of things to like about the way season two wound up, but that reveal wasn't one of them. They'd fallen so far from that first glimpse of the WW in the pilot, where it's some sort of evil faerie berserker, all fluid and faceless and genuinely creepy as hell.
    Liked this episode though, always good to see Hinds. Dinklage and Dance's scene was a cut above anything else.

    A lot of the problems I have with the show kind of crystallized in this episode. They have to juggle so many different story lines and so many characters that every episode can't afford to spend more than about ten minutes on each one, which results in this weird combination of the story feeling slow as shit but also moving too quickly to breathe, leaving me pretty unsatisfied on an individual episode basis. I almost think it would be better if they turned the whole thing into a webseries with each character segment as an episode, and release them daily. And they've also gone and made weird changes like
    Sam not sending the ravens
    that have pretty big narrative implications that I'm left thinking will have to be resolved by some sort of deus ex machina that would've been unnecessary if they'd left it alone.

    Saw S3ep1 Via HBO preview weekend, so it's the only new GoT I'll get for a while, unless RR writes like the wind.

    I really enjoyed Tyrion's chat with his dad; that scene just worked very well for me and I'm wondering if it's a setup for certain things later (ie: shitting gold). Squee'd at recognition of various book characters, and generally had fun. Sad I'll have to wait for dvd for s3, but suspect I'll like it more than s2, which I enjoyed, but not quite as much as S1.

    Wait, did I miss a meeting? You guys don't like the white walkers?
