remember the last episode of season 1 where the main character of the series died? no one is safe... but I don't think Tyrion died, I mean he was still alive enough to see his assailant die in front of him.


did you notice who his assailant was? Thats a pretty important part of the story.

My bad, accidentally deleted it when I was adding the picture in. I suppose "the chain" would've been too expensive production-wise, but it takes away from Tyrion's brilliance. I guess the nuke-tastic explosion will have to suffice...

wasn't it the knight the "king" said would represent him on the battlefield while he hid in his room like a sniveling child?

Ah this show is great. I only started watching it about 3 or 4 weeks ago but caught myself up pretty quickly. It's going to be a painful wait after the end of this season. Sandor is probably my favorite character left (with Ned and Drogo gone), such a bad ass.

One thought I'd like to add, this was epic:

"Those are brave men banging on those gates. Lets go kill them!"

Looked like he wanted to continue the assault, but his own men pulled him away once Lord Tywin's forces arrived....

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

Oh okay good, that's what I thought. I figured if it was Lannister men, they would have tried to kill him.

You can't start at the end of book 2 it is too different. You COULD do the beginning of book 2. But you'd miss out a lot of backstory/detail. And some small things might be confusing.

I asked that question here about a week ago and was told to start the books from the beginning. Glad I did, I was just going to pick it up after this season ended on book three. Instead I went and bought the first 3 books (all on sale at Superstore) and am 2/3 done book one in a few days, it is very hard to put down. So far, book one is nearly Identical to season 1, the dialogue, the order of events, its very impressive how close they adapted it. I have heard book 2 diverges from the show, I will find out by next week at this pace.

Does anyone have a good place to watch online?

I just started watching, I'm only on episode 5 of season 1 but have run into trouble with links.

I would look through the thread to see if this has been adressed, but I do not want any spoilers.

he's not.

finale was awesome... i need moar. i can't believe i have to suffer through 4 months of true blood now... my wife loves that show. it was ok/decent for the first bit, but it became a clusterfrack of crappiness and kept going down. it seems like they have jumped the shark a couple times now, i don't know how they get renewed.

I'm going to start reading the books. I love the show and have heard the books are amazing.

The only book I've ever willingly read by myself was The Outsiders, so I'm guessing I'm in for quite a time.

Don't get me wrong, I've read lots of books. I just read them because I had to for school. :lol:


That foreshadowing in The House of the Undying was amazing. Where she walks into the Throne room and it's covered in snow with the roof gone.

i don't think it was foreshadowing, i think it was a test, to see which one she wanted more, the iron throne or her baby dragons. same with her husband/baby.

Just wait'll you see that same sequence in the books. Way cooler in a way the TV show couldn't have matched.

Yeah that was a test too, but the House of the Undying is magical and may let you see the future.

Without book spoilers, can someone explain why Winterfell was destroyed? I thought those guys were going to surrender and go home by giving up Theon? So what was the town in ruins? Does it have something to do with the bastard son? I'm guessing we'll find out next season but thought it was odd.
