Game of Thrones....

Recommended Posts

now who am I going to root for...  :tear:

 

WAT? I've been rooting for the same 2 people the whole time, Snow and Targaryen.

 

The bastard and the mother of dragons...I mean, there's no question.

Last night's episode was beautiful justice. I must admit it was brilliantly acted, and brilliantly handled on all other aspects as well. I must admit though that I feel like shit is about to hit the fan now.

My husband and I just watched the episode tonight.  As my brother told me, "AVOID THE INTERNET!" and I did until I watched it.  I have never been more pleased.  :D  I agree. Great acting!

Is it bad of me that I've been collecting the books as I find them at a local Goodwill, but I don't want to read them because I'm in love with the television series and don't want spoilers :(

I love the Game of Thrones. I like the Tyrion Lannister and all his smart assness. the there are the rest of the Lannisters which you love to hate, and you know are going to die twords the end of the shows for a sweet release.

Just finished reading the fifth book a week ago. I have no idea what do now...

Look at spoiler for discussion of book. Take caution!!

 

Does it annoy anyone that the series is actually called A Song of Ice and Fire but is widely known as Game of Thrones because of the show? I call it A Song of Ice and Fire because I started reading first and people don't know what I'm talking about at first :/

 

Edit(Contains 5th book spoilers!!!):

Do you think Jon is really dead? Along with Catelyn and Brienne who else do you think was revived to life by Thoros/power of R'hllor? Do you think R'hllor is a good/savior god? Is the "Other" god bad?

The spoiler below contain's theories I have thought of myself that could happen in book 6! They are neither confirmed or denied :)

If you don't want to know about book 6 theories, don't read the spoiler

 

I refuse to believe Jon's death is permanent! There's no way a character who's had so much story line can be killed off like that, especially considering the huge theories behind his real mother that could be explioted!

So I'm thinking GRRM will do 1 of 2 things for Jon in book 6 ...

1) Jon survives the attack. The Wildlings/Crows at Castle Black fight through the ambush and retrieve Jon's body and keep him alive (though he would be wounded for the rest of the series)

2) (Preferable theory because its FAR more interesting)

He really does die and is tossed beyond the wall as a "wildling lover" or something similar. However, he comes back as a wright.

For this theory to work however, you'd have to remember the character "Cold Hands", the mysterious stranger who escorted Bran north of the wall. I believe Cold Hands is really Benjen Stark, and that he somehow perished, returned as a wright but yet was somehow able to retain physical consciousness. I hope something similar will happen to Jon, possibly because of his Stark blood (direct descendant on the Children of the Forest)

Those theories are interesting! My reply will be in a spoiler.

I don't think Jon is dead either. Sometimes I don't know if GRRM will kill someone or not because in the chapter where Jon gets ambushed everything goes black, which is vague, just like how in one of Asha's chapters it ended with a warrior of Stannis' army about to deliver the killing blow. Gah, screw GRRM always putting me on edge. I kind of like the wight theory and although I am not sure that Cold Hands is Benjen Stark but I am most certain Cold Hands was a Black Brother. On the topic of death, I was sad to see Quentyn die, but this just makes my shipping for Dany x Aegon even harder!!.

Probably asked before, but who is your favorite character? My favorite character is either Jon or Barristan.

It was Ned Stark very early in the series, but well...

I don't know how to hide stuff with spoilers, so i you're not up to date, you've been warned......

They just destroyed the reputation of a character I was beginning to like very much in the TV series. The worst diversion from the book series so far. Now when I say I like Jaime Lannister, TV watchers who didn't read the series will think i'm crazy. That's right, I thought Jaime was the most moral and rational character in the series. I'm fine with a little incest, but the -> non-consensual <- sister-brother love they inserted into the tv series ruined it for me.

Omg this x1000 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Rage filled reply in spoiler

WHY DID THEY DO THAT????? UGH. I hate how they portrayed Jaime as a rapist in the scene. Damn I am angry. I also hated it when they portrayed Drogo as a barbarian who just raped Dany, but not as much as I hated this. I like Jaime so much as a character in the book series, but people who exclusively only watch the series will now see him as a sex fiend and rapist ugggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggh.

 

Also if there's ever a forum function/tag you don't know how to use you could just quote someone else's post with that tag/function and see how he/she did it! For spoilers just put whatever between "spoiler" "/spoiler" but replace the quotations with brackets.

I've read all of the books and I think my greatest enjoyment is that Martin isn't afraid of reality.  What I mean is that so often in books and stories we find people living through rediculously dangerous situations, which we of course enjoy because we are rooting for the.  However, how amazing is it that these people more than likely would have died?  I mean if we look at real history, how many kings and princes, wives and bastards have been murdered?  An amazingly large number!  So the shocking aspect of character demise in this book, brings light of appreication to how things like this actually happened in our history already.  My main concerns though are that he might die before finishing the series... and that maybe 2 books even ebing 1500 pages each, isn't enough to complete the story.  I mean certain things haven't advanced as far as they need to yet for a completion to certain... problems.. I won't say much cus I don't want to spoil haha... but I mean a lot of things need to happen if it's gunna work.  I'm very excited to see who dies, Martin has said the ending will be similar to a winter wind blowing over a field of tombstones.... LOVE THAT!
