Just don't let your son be anywhere near - although you've figured that out already. especially true around episode 7 or 8....

Why does Arya hate Clegan (The Hound) so much when he saved her life after Jon Stark was decapitated. I get it, he killed the boy per Joffrey's orders. He's just hired muscle.

Also how about the dude Hound fought.

sorry are you confused?

jon snow is the bastard of ed stark and is now in the nights watch,ed stark is the father who was decapped per jeoffry for saying that the throne was not jeoffry's. arya's uncle who took her when stark was decapped was also of the nights watch(he is eds broski). the uncle was killed by the guys looking for the smith who was the bastard of rob barthaneon or whatever his name was(the last king). arya hates the hound for killing her friend. the hound took a liking to sansa and stopped her from killing jeoffry when she wanted to push him off the bridge where her fathers head was piked.


unless i fucked something up in there lmfao

I'm sure he meant Ned Stark. And that wasn't her uncle who took her, he was just a Ranger from the Night's Watch who came to King's Landing asking for more "recruits" for the wall, ie dungeon prisoners and anybody else who'd volunteer.

Yeah I obviously meant to say Ned instead of Jon. I must've been talking to my boss John. Thanks for clearing that up. Obviously The Hound had a thing for Sansa but I got my long haired ugly dudes confused that saved Arya. Now why didn't Houndie tell Arya that he looked out for her sister and that she's well or whatever. Or is he too proud/ashamed?

And man Hound's brother, The Mountain, is the most talked about dude that they never show anymore. I think the last time I saw him was after Ser Loras outjousted him.

That was a rough scene. I truly hope that the series ends with Geoffrey meeting his demise in a long, painful, horrible way.

I didn't realize that was her. I figured it was just some girl Jeoffery decided to play with because he could.

snitches get shot with a cross-bow

but ANY episode without my dragons is WEAK

but usually that means the next episode or the one after they will be the majority of the episode's focus.

I'm all caught up.

I do not think the Hound is completely bad, just loyal. He's protected Sansa and I expect that he may do the same for Arya.

I think the next couple episodes will have more of the dragons. Looks like it will be the main focus of the finale. I would like to see how the characters all come together.

I'm kinda disappointed that the season started with the white walkers and it seems like they have somewhat abandoned that story line.

I was telling my wife yesterday that the advantage of seeing all the episodes over a 3 week period is that I get to remember more about the characters. I felt that the first season was focused around 2-3 story lines. Now it seems like there are 5-6 story lines making it difficult to really focus on them all.

i really liked last nights episode. i do agree with Ravin though that there do seem to be almost too many story lines going on. however that's how the books are. it cant be easy to try and translate these massive stories from books to TV.

I'm sure everyone here hopes Jaime gets that dude back. I wonder if Jaime will go hook fist a la Aqua Man or the white Orc from The Hobbit.

Oh and I LOVED the convo between Tywin and Joffrey. Tywin is such a good actor and his tone was freaking great. Shall we have you carried up the tower. I'm glad they know about what's building up out east. Ironic that of all people Joffrey is worried about Daenerys' forces.

And how about Gendry knowing the deal about is heritage. That's going to cause quite a stir when him and Melisandre return to tell Stannis that he's not the heir to the throne.

^^^I think geoffrey is more afraid of the dragons than anything. I love how Tywin can put that little prick in his place too.

I can't believe there are only 3 episodes left. I will have to get the books because the season is not long enough.

Season 3 covers approximately the first half of book 3. But they are/will move events/scenes/dialogue around as the writers and producers see fit. There are 5 books out so far and who knows how long before 6 comes out. Book 4 became too large so GRRM decided to split it and move some characters to book 5 amd that was only supposed to take a year to complete but book 5 came out 5 years later not 1.

So glad my wife wasn't in the room for that scene with the girls and torture guy. She already hates shows of the genre, last thing I need is for her to see the near porn/torture scene from that episode. She watches True Blood with no issue, so hypocrite.

Not to be a spelling nerd but it's Joffrey. I don't mind being corrected. The names are tricky. Also I always thought it was Sir but it's Ser. Thank you closed captioned.

That's a little surprising on the spelling. Most British use Geo, not just a J.


Those were so cute chicks!!

It is Sir, but Martin uses the medieval form of the word, which is Ser with an E. Just like how the maesters have that extra E in there, he's using archaic forms of the words. When I was reading the books I had to stop every few paragraphs to look words up because he really dives into the whole medieval landscape. He extensively talks about horses - I didn't realize there were horses bred specifically for war, for riding, for labor, etc. And the architecture of castles, he uses a lot of vocabulary describing them.
