    Because she is no one which is a lie.

    Well she was told to make up a story so people wouldn't know she was Arya. Probably wouldn't have looked good to ask about him.

    Not quite sure I follow the question but when i got Feast I didn't realize that Lee was the narrator and not Roy. They each do the voices for each character which is difficult but I just think Roy does a better job than Lee who does almost the same voice for each character.

    Roy is actually going to be in GOT in season two

    Don't think so. I do recall a purge of the bastard children ordered by Cersei. It was another early symptom of her extreme paranoia.

    Good episode considering how much they have to set up.

    Great first episode, I found it interesting that they decided to start the season with joffrey's birthday and not how COK starts with the prologue in dragonstone.

  16. #166
    I think the killing of the bastards was largely left to your imagination. They showed up looking for Gendry, and you had to assume what was happening all over. Right? Seems like they've changed up quite a bit without changing the main points, or altering characters. Cerrisis power play w Littlefinger, ect. Love it.

    Did they change Asha's name because of how close it is to Arya? Seemed like an odd change to me.

    No, too close to Osha (the wildling chick at Winterfell).

    $#@!ing great. Love the addition of Dragonstone to the opening. Great use of Maester Cressen to be the exposition for Davos. Melisandre is great. Perfect casting. I really like how they are beefing up Robb's part. You know the season 3 biggie is going to just blow people away who haven't read the books. Craster is even more dispicable on screen. Was that Gilly that he pulled in to tell the Night's Watch how they were fairing? Bran's warging was done really well.

    The hour flew by. Can't wait for the addition of Brienne and Margery next week.

    Someone correct me but wasn't Theon going to Pike Robb's idea in the book. He wanted to make peace with Greyjoy to get access to his ships and sent Theon because he felt it would win Greyjoy over? I love how they had Theon talk about how Ned raised him to be a man of honor. Will make me hate him even more when he gets to betrays Winterfell.

    I don't dislike the guy playing Davos, but I always imagined him looking like the guy that plays Bronn.

    I pictured Davos as more $#@!ney than a proper Brit. He's almost too polished but I think that's the point. He, like Littlefinger, is trying to overcome coming from a low born birth. It's funny to read people on the other thread who think Stannis is a bad casting choice. He's supposed to be wooden. I liked how he looked like he didn't know what to do after he pulled Lightbringer out of the fire. He's supposed to not inspire much love or confidence. I can't wait to see the Renly/Stannis face off.

    I was worried that I would enjoy the show less now that I've read the books but it's just the opposite. So much stuff you can pick up on. Love it.

    Enjoyed all the added scenes. The show clarifies Cersei going after the bastards more than the book. And that scene with Littlefinger sort of sets up his hand in Joffrey's demise. Maybe.


    Edit: Melissandre is hotter than I imagined but I have no problem with that. Cersei also seems hotter than last season.

    I could fap to the jpeg of her in that hood in the preview where Renly is taking to her. I love her so hard.

    Gagree on the thought that the show is so much better to watch after having read the book. I was geeking over tons of $#@! like Dragonstone, Craster's Keep, and Gedrey's helm.

    I did too as I used Robert as a guide, but the guy plays Stannis as dry as his character demands. I'm not upset with any of the cast though they are doing a great job.

    That's after all the shadow babies.

    I think you're right. I think it was Balon scoffing at the idea of Robb giving him a crown that truly changed Theon.

    Either episode 4 or 5. I'm thinking it ends episode 4.

    At first I was a bit disappointed in the Maester Cressen death because it's almost like he kamakized himself. In the book she drinks first and then he drinks, right? But her drinking after the blood is running from his mouth makes her all the more awesomer.

    The non-book thread is going to come to a head soon. Ruff will have plenty of posters' balls as knapsacks.

    I saw who was cast to play Davos and Stannis before I got to those books so I, of course, think they're perfect. Good first ep. had to do some set up, I kept looking at the time hoping there was still plenty left. I'm a little undecided about which is better, having read the books or not. I just remember watching season 1 and it was awesome how I was always surprised and didn't really know who was who. It's pretty awesome having read the books too. Was cool to see Dragonstone, know that Melissandre isn't really all that bad and to have a little sympathy for Jaime.

    I think they got Stannis right. He's not supposed to be huge like Robert and he has the right kind of face for when Stannis begins to look gaunt and worn down by the strain. Renly was the brother that's supposed to look like like a young Robert. They did $#@! that one up. I like the guy they picked to be Davos also. It was cool they made Melisandre's amulet glow a little after she drank the poison like it did in the book. $#@!, I'm such a nerd.

    Season 2 continues the trend of former Star Wars actors being in Game of Thrones

    This.

    Watching last night I geeked out over the painted table at dragonstone, and I got a chub during the upcoming scenes.

    The stuff beyond the wall is going to be badass, whiteout and rocky terrain is even better than I imagined.

    Cersei starting to realize her son is just as insufferable and out of control as she is. You can read that stuff, but seeing it in the throne room was just awesome.

    Sansa character is $#@!ing great also. One of my least favorite book characters is my one of my favorite on screen. Reading books 2&3 I always pictured her dialogue as a completely broken spirit, but in the show she still has the right ratio of emotion/emptiness.

    If there was any doubt before last night, definitely the best cast of the show.

I really like how they are beefing up Robb's part. You know the season 3 biggie is going to just blow people away who haven't read the books. Craster is even more dispicable on screen. Was that Gilly that he pulled in to tell the Night's Watch how they were fairing? Bran's warging was done really well.

    The hour flew by. Can't wait for the addition of Brienne and Margery next week.

    Yes, that was Gilly.

    Yeah, in the non-spoiler thread, they are all missing that the amulet glowed after she drank. I thought about explaining it, but f them for being illiterate.

    It's ridiculous. NorthLoop didn't spoil anything and was trying to help them with stuff they didn't pick up on. The whole point of that scene is to let the audience know Melisandre has real power, but it's going over their heads.
