    Well if you think Tyrion's wedding sucked...

    I'm guessing a large number of people hadn't read the books.

    Hee hee hee.

    Knife twisting at its finest:
    "Teehee! Let's name the baby Ned. You can teach him to ride and fight!"

    Of course those who've read the books will notice
    The extra red wedding casualties : Robb's wife (and unborn baby) and Brynden Tully. In the book, they both remained safely at Riverrun. Of course in the book Jeyne Westerling had been placed in Robb's bed by the Lannister in the first place, and she wasn't pregnant thanks to the special tea her mother made her drink. But Brynden Tully dead means there probably won't be a siege of Riverrun.

    I don't think the Blackfish died. He snuck out for a piss just before the bedding ceremony and I didn't see him among the dead. Does make me wonder if that will lead TV viewers to see him as part of the conspiracy.

    @ J. Brennan :
    My mistake. You're right, he left saying he needed "a tree to piss on" which might mean he was outside of the castle when the killing took place.

    Guys, you have to take a look at the concentrated butthurt on the Red Wedding Tears Twitter feed.

    All the Feels. All of them.

    Thought this was an interesting reading of Daenerys as WMD-wielding empress (among other things) from David Stubbs, made me rethink the otherwise v dodgy last scene of the season:

    My friend Catheirne and I talked for an hour and a half about the whole series of books (all of them, 1 through 5, so mad spoilers all up in here) and recorded it. You can listen, if your knitting or doing laundry or something:

    Confabulation Engine Episode 000 - A Conversation of Ice and Fire - this is a direct link to the mp3 - it's 135MB

    This is probably episode 0 of a podcast about books. Future ones won't ramble so much. I'd love to get your feedback about any of it.

    Eight names blown up by film and TV
    According to Laura Wattenberg, “The Baby Name Wizard” blogger, 146 American girls were named Khaleesi last year after HBO’s Game of Thrones title...”a 450% jump in the name’s usage from 2011, and before that year it was completely unknown.”

    In case you missed it, George R. R. Martin is tired of your shit. I love that Paul and Storm got to do a bit like this, they're great guys.
