This season should be the best yet! As someone who has read the books, I think I know where the season finale will leave off at.

It's going to be sad to see that scene play out. I believe that's the one he hated writing, and I know it ticked me off, especially since it looked like my favorite character was going to bite the dust in that book too. And he killed off my third favorite character in a different section of the book.

I liked seeing the ship and the Unsullied in the preview. I'm interested to see how the Jon Show and Mance bits play out on screen, especially since they've made Jon a lot more whiny in the show. I'm disappointed this season is splitting the third book in two. So much sweet stuff happens in that one, it's the best in the series so far.

They should try to stretch it out as long as they can because it's all downhill (or wandering around aimlessly) after the third book

[size=4]Have faith, he's going to get back at it for the last books in the series. A Feast for Crows was tough to read though, way too many characters I didn't need to know about.[/size]

Either the finale or episode 9. Either way, it will be in season 3 not season 4, I believe.

Oh man, the month of the premiere is upon us. I don't know if it's possible to be more excited for the return of a TV show. All the Storm of Swords material is going to be epic.

Incidentally, does HBO censor stuff on the live feed? I've never watched it live, as I used to have access to OnDemand.

I found the episode names for the season. Not sure which one the event occurs in, but I'm still guessing it's the finally. So much stuff to cover in Storm of Swords.

Wow, we're really veering off from the books this season. Not even trying to hide Ser Barristan's identity, that's no fun.

I would have preferred a little intrigue, he built up Dany's trust in the book before the big reveal. This was kinda like 'yo waddup Imma serve you'. The way they handled the whole Qarth sequence kinda messed up that storyline at the moment, since him and Strong Belwas were supposed to supply Dany's ships as a gift from Illyrio. In the show, they sold Xaro Xhoan Daxos' stuff for the ship. It changes the dynamic a bit.

While I'm alright with streamlining, and admittedly thought the show handled the Qarth sequence better overall than the book did, they might be veering to far off course.

Just watched the episode again, and I'm really displeased with how they handled John's introduction to Mance Rayder. I liked the whole thing in the book with the songs and the him being at the banquet, and John's reasoning for joining made so much more sense in the book. That scene could have been so much more than it was, I'm interested to see how they handle the John and Ygritte relationship now.

Word. She's probably the hottest girl on that show, but it is a stiff competition between her, Emilia Clarke, and Oona Chaplin.

That's why that April Fools joke they did was so not funny. I might stop watching if they replaced Dinklage with Davis.

No, but it looks like the fight I'm talking about might be next week.

By the way, the guy who was Thoros should have been Tom Sevenstrings. Not how I envisioned that character at all, and that portrayal might be the only time the show did that wrong.

The Queen of Thorns was well done though (those of you who didn't read might find out why soon), I always liked that character.

I was a bit worried when I saw that Jojen was the kid from Love, Actually, but apparently he grew up and actually fit in line with how I envisioned the character being. Of course, the Jojen and Meera arrival made more sense in the books...
