I hear them say maester like may-ster. I guess eventually that became mass-ter and spelled as master?

It's closer to "meister" which is German in origin, which means "master"

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.
Screw that, no way in hell I'm reading the books now!

True. I think Jaime said may-ster though. But I certainly heard more meister.

you could just skip over the terms like a normal person. I'm one of those people who has to stop to look up a word if I don't know what it is, regardless of what I'm reading.

I know Theon wasn't a likable character to begin with, but I'm almost rooting for him now.

I think this season is way too short as well!

The Theon torture scenes need to end. 3 episodes that reveal nothing new about his tormentor - I don't get it.

Just a warning if you read around the site below it's full of spoilers. But if you read up on this character, you can understand why (warining - it will tell you what happens to Theon if you read it all - stop after "A Storm of Swords" if you want to stop where the TV show is). I did just because I had the same question - it seems that this whole back-story is not being portrayed in the TV series, so I'm wondering what reason they'll come up with.

Stayed up for last night's. Well done Samwell. And 2 nude scenes. I won't spoil yet who but you won't be disappointed. Plus Titan Bastard's whore was hot too. I love this show.

That Liberace movie was interesting. Growing up in the 80's I didn't know who he was until his death made headlines, and then I still didn't know who he was cause I didn't care. But I enjoyed the movie, thought it provided entertainment. Yeah it was but so what? I did miss GoT but I'm glad that it was a good package that replaced it. It could've been a Lindsay Lohan "Liz" fiasco.

I thought the last few episodes were getting boring, but last nights end made up for it. What a great scene.

Did NOT see that coming!!! My wife saw it before I did and she was freaking out over something big, so even thought I knew something big was waiting for me, did not think that would be it.

Notice the pattern. 2nd last episode of the season always the bloodiest. Season 1 with Ned. Season 2 with the battle at Kings Landing. Now this. Holy cow! I was so shocked.
