    Wake me up when Spring 2012 comes.

    The finale was great. I've been reading the books on my tablet.

    GODLIKE.

    Life is keeping me busy. Eventually I always come back, even if its just for a couple of hours.

    I hope life is treating you well :)

    Re: game of thrones, someone asked if the ending is the same as in the books. Actually the series has deviated very little from the books. Even down to the dialogue. Which is as it should be.

    dude shoulda went to go fight with his brohams. they're all going to get executed as traitors if they lose so what will he have left to protect against the white walkers anyways. him and his band of misfits wouldn't even be able to fight a group of them either.

    sick first season!

    does the 1st book end the same way? anywho that last shot was great. I heart the cinematography in this show

    Pretty much, except she's bald from the flames plus shes breast feeding the dragons.

    I think some of the stuff they showed in episode 10 is the beginning of book 2. The stuff with Rob and them proclaiming him King of The North.

    In the book did Arya meet up with the other king's bastard son as well? The blacksmith's apprentice? I thought he was barely mentioned in the book or whatever.
    ?
    it happens, but in the second book. same with the cersei cousincest.

    Catatonic zombie (now thoroughly dead) Drogo still better than the entire season of Walking Dead. REAL TALK!

    That scene when the drunken Bannermen proclaim Robb as the king of the North is pretty much how I imagine Canada was founded.

    lol @ Tywin Lannister saying "whoo-er" like he's from the East Coast.

    Too long of a wait for next season :(

    Good thing Breaking Bad premiere is almost here.

    I thought some more heavy shit was gonna go down in this episode but it was more of a preview of whats to come. Ep 10 could have been ep 1 of Season 2.

    And howcome we aint get no good battle scenes? theres a fucking war going on! HBO doesnt have the budget for some good ol battlefield action?!

    Questions/Comments:
    1. <3 Danaeyrus, glad to see them titties one last time, its gonna be crazy to see where her part of the story goes now that shes hatched the dragons and is apparently fireproof lol
    - But I find it odd that the Dothraki didnt appear to want to kill her, im also confused about who those people are she is with? Are those the prisoners? Why would the Dothraki let her take their prisoners?
    2. I thought Drogo was going to become a Zombie like the one that showed up at the wall

    3.Geoffrey is one ruthless mofo hes gotta go next season!
    4. The youngest daughter looks nothing like a boy even with the short hair lmao.
    5.I wonder if Robbs boy is gonna turn on him, he just has that traitor look to him.
    6. Cant Cersei get dick outside of the family?!
    7. Are we to Assume that Cyrio has been killed or may he pop up in the future?

    This season already cost $50m. If they can find a way to get that budget under control, they might show some battles.

    Yeah. Completely epic ending to the season. Spring 2012 is a future away.

    I'm always pleased when both villians and heroes make sensible actions that you can see their thought process. Tywin being angry at Joffery for killing Ned is rather logical and really makes the character better.

    Joffery's behavior and taunting of Sansa doesn't make any kind of sense, though. Even an inbred idiot like him should think that it's not wise to rub your future wife's dead family in her face. She'll have more than ample opportunities for revenge, as this episode showed.

    But yeah, fantasy epic TV is REALLY expensive to do right. I mean, they're basically working with a story on par with LOTR, only they have to produce 10 hours a year! The final payoff just isn't worth it sometimes.

    That was the main problem with Rome, was that it cost about 110$ million for the first season.

    And if you remember, they didn't show huge battles in that show, either.

    Joffrey is an arrogant dumbass because win-cest Cersei spoils the fuck out of him and coddles the fucker. Parents should take notice - this is what happens when you spoil your children. So I think its plausible that he'd be a dick to Sansa. "LULZ I FUCKED YOUR DAD AND NOW I'M A FUCK YOU TOO BITCH"

    my only complaint about the season was that i wish there were a few more semi-forced sex scenes between drago and daeneryns.
    also is it clear in the book whether or not the witch poisoned drago's wound or not? if not, that's a pretty strong hubris biting you in the ass moment.

    either way, i look forward to those dragons growing up and fucking shit up

    I haven't watched the series but here's what happens in the book...
    Khal Drogo curbstomps this enemy tribe and gets wounded in the process. Dany finds one of the witches, FROM THE TRIBE, to create a poultice for the wound. Drogo is pwned. Later, Dany asks to bring him back from the dead. Witch is like, OK. After zombie Drogo awakens, witch is basically like LULZ YOU GOT TROLLED!

    cause seriously Dany... wtf were you thinking, asking an enemy witch to help the person who just murdered your whole tribe? so stupid.

    Ha, my nigga ned.

    I want more Syrio. God I hope he didn't die. Dunno why all the critics were like "This show is confusing" The only thing really confusing is their fantasy fun time names, but by the last episode you kinda have them all down.

    I guess because it had a multiple storylines and did it well? The wire must have been the most confusing show ever made when it was starting out if that's the case.

    The dwarf and the Arya are my favorite characters. I like dragonblonde too. "I'm not going to scream" Ha, that witch LIED.

    GoT has the best child actors on TV.

    The made-up scenes are silly. Anyone curious about the viewers can check this out. There'll probably be a huge jump in viewership by the start of the next season. Here's hoping for a premiere that breaks 4m.

    Gendry wasn't a huge role, but he was definitely important for Arya in the books. He's definitely not a "barely mentioned" character.

    Actually Drogo had ripped off the poultice because it was itchy and just had it dressed normally. So I don't think the witch was planning anything until Daenarys had requested the blood magic be done.
    He's like this American Hero type character, then he's the fuckin main character in the movie. I always related Ryu and Ken as kinda those "secondary twin characters" similar to Phil and Lil.

    That's something that I didn't like. In the book, Drago is gentle with Daenerys when they have sex (as gentle as a brute can be), but the show makes it look like he is straight raping her.

    he ripped the poultice off because it felt wrong. it was too late by then. i'll have to re-read the book, but i'm pretty sure it was poisoned. the actual wound he suffered in battle was minor, it would not have killed him. its not explicitly stated, its implied, since the witch later rages about how her tribe was destroyed.

    i thought it was made pretty obvious that she planned it from the very moment she had the chance (fixing up drogo)... i mean, sure we didnt know when it first happened, but she did later confess to everything, no?

    in that article is an interesting link speculating on Jon's true parents. It contains some minor spoilers on the later books (it mentions scenes with various characters, so you know who George doesn't brutally slaughter ... yet.... lawls):

    I definitely didn't do a deep reading on the book like that, but damn the theory that Jon may not be Ned's son makes a lot of sense. Seems so obvious now in retrospect.

    He dreamt an old dream, of three knights in white cloaks, and a tower long fallen, and Lyanna in her bed of blood.
    In the dream his friends rode with him, as they had in life. Proud Martyn Cassel, Jory’s father; faithful Theo Wull; Ethan Glover, who had been Brandon’s squire; Ser Mark Ryswell, soft of speech and gentle of heart; the crannogman, Howland Reed; Lord Dustin on his great red stallion. Ned had known their faces as well as he knew his own once, but the years leech at a man’s memories, even those he has vowed never to forget. In the dream they were only shadows, grey wraiths on horses made of mist.
    They were seven, facing three. In the dream as it had been in life. Yet these were no ordinary three. They waited before the round tower, the red mountains of Dorne at their backs, their white cloaks blowing in the wind. And these were no shadows; their faces burned clear, even now. Ser Arthur Dayne, the Sword of the Morning, had a sad smile on his lips. The hilt of the greatsword Dawn poked up over his right shoulder. Ser Oswell Whent was on one knee, sharpening his blade with a whetstone. Across his white-enameled helm, the black bat of his House spread its wings. Between them stood fierce old Ser Gerold Hightower, the White Bull, Lord Commander of the Kingsguard.
    “I looked for you on the Trident,” Ned said to them.
    “We were not there,” Ser Gerold answered.
    “Woe to the Usurper if we had been,” said Ser Oswell.
    “When King’s Landing fell, Ser Jaime slew your king with a golden sword, and I wondered where you were.”
    “Far away,” Ser Gerold said, “or Aerys would yet sit the Iron Throne, and our false brother would burn in seven hells.”
    “I came down on Storm’s End to lift the siege,” Ned told them, “and the Lords Tyrell and Redwyne dipped their banners, and all their knights bent the knee to pledge us fealty. I was certain you would be among them.”
    “Our knees do not bend easily,” said Ser Arthur Dayne.
    “Ser Willem Darry is fled to Dragonstone, with your queen and Prince Viserys. I thought you might have sailed with him.”
    “Ser Willem is a good man and true,” said Ser Oswell.
    “But not of the Kingsguard,” Ser Gerold pointed out. “The Kingsguard does not flee.”
    “Then or now,” said Ser Arthur. He donned his helm.
    “We swore a vow,” explained old Ser Gerold.
    Ned’s wraiths moved up beside him, with shadow swords in hand. They were seven against three.
    “And now it begins,” said Ser Arthur Dayne, the Sword of the Morning. He unsheathed Dawn and held it with both hands. The blade was pale as milkglass, alive with light.
    “No,” Ned said with sadness in his voice. “Now it ends.” As they came together in a rush of steel and shadow, he could hear Lyanna screaming. “Eddard!” she called. A storm of rose petals blew across a blood-streaked sky, as blue as the eyes of death.
    “Lord Eddard,” Lyanna called again.
    “I promise,” he whispered. “Lya, I promise . . . ”

    That was Ned's dream after his leg was injured, but that wasn't used.
    Matriarch...Cook?
    Yeah right. Wouldn't trust a recipe from that one. Snake venom. "Eye of Newt."

    the book is really vague, probably intentionally so

    witch says don't take off the bandages
    - drogo takes off the bandages

    witch says don't take wine or milk of the poppy
    - drogo does anyway

    he goes against prescription and dies. might have ended differently, probably not.

    she probably wanted him to die, but it's clear drogo wasn't taking doctor's orders. but then the orders were probably a lie?
