Roy is actually going to be in GOT in season two
Bran's "green dreams" are getting better!
Direwolves look badass
wasn't there only one bastard kid killed in the book?
Can't wait to see the house of the undying...NEED MORE!
Oh and $#@! theon
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.
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.
$#@! yeah, i downloaded this EZTV low-res rip online from piratebay and the quality is $#@!ing awesome (720p is in progress)
It's already out there that some things are going to be different from the books.
$#@!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.

yeah i imagined davos looking more like bronn, also imagined stannis as being a bigger, brauner dude.. but i still think they did a great job.. Melisandre looks EXACTLY like i imagined
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 imagined stannis to be older, frailer in physicality, sorta world-worn and beaten and crabby... kinda like theon's daddy.
speaking of that... which episode does renly get offed in?
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.
yeah i $#@!ed up by posting a tidbit of info on $#@! that ALREADY HAPPENED .. those $#@!ets get butthurt easily. maybe if they $#@!in learned how to read books
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
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.
yeah there is some serious $#@!ing titty baby $#@! on that thread
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.
