    You all are vulgar. She is a respectful non-sexual character.

    Aww, you weren't a fan of the fashion burrito? I actually thought she pulled it off.

    Still trying to impress the king, I see. The woman in the background seems disturbed by the Queen of Thorns' hat.

    Hah, the flaming sword. Nice. Actually I think that showed several Riverlands/BwB scenes.

    What is Robb Stark's actors accent?

    I mean they all sound incredibly diffrent, but the accents are beyond. I thought Hearing Lee Adama's british accents was a shock before.

    Hmmm....

    Olenna's supposed to be this small, wizened little woman. She's taller than Margaery here (who's just as skanky as ever).

    As for the video: hm. I see a pyramid -- I suppose that's Astapor. The Unsullied don't have pointy hats though -- odd since they did at Pentos in the pilot episode. I also like that she's wearing a cape (and pants for once!) -- I don't like Dany much anymore, but I *did* like her brief stint as a conqueror. Too bad she had to go and ruin that.

    Oooh, Meera and Jojen!

    I agree, Meera is totally unappreciated. I liked Dany until book five; she seemed to regress and lose her way. (So did EVERYONE else, but I digress.)

    True, but book 5 had such great ethnographies of the Free Cities that I let it pass. I find Essos (and the Dornish) to be far more interesting than the boring Westerosi. One might say that they spice up the narrative.

    eh? EH??

    I was wondering about that. Turns out Diana Rigg is three inches taller than Natalie Dormer. Did not know that before. Now I do. And so do all of you.

    So did anyone end up getting The Lands of Ice and Fire? I'm getting it for christmas, and what I saw when browsing through in the store the other day was amazing, King's Landing and Braavos especially.

    Asshai, eh? I don't see any familiar landmarks on the corners of that map. Where is it in relation to, say, Qarth?

    A) isn't there a map of Sothoryos?

    B) is it true that these are pullout maps that I can put on my apartment walls?

    A) From Amazon: "maps of King’s Landing; The Wall and Beyond the Wall; the Free Cities; and Slaver’s Bay, Valyria, and Sothyros."

    B) From Amazon again: "The maps in this beautiful, one-of-a-kind atlas will enrich your reading or viewing experience, provide another view of your favorite characters’ epic journeys, and open up captivating new worlds—plus, they’ll look great on any castle wall."

    You can see the top of Sothoryos on a couple of the maps but there isn't one devoted to it or that shows the entire continent.

    The 12 maps included are The Known World, The West, Central Essos, The East, Westeros, Beyond the Wall, The Free Cities, Slaver's Bay, The Dothraki Sea, King's Landing, Braavos, and Journeys.

    The Journeys map is a mess with arrows all over each other to the point that it's almost impossible to follow but that is really my only complaint about them.

    Hmm, did any of you read the tournament over at r/asoiaf a few months ago? Final round ended up being Garlan Tyrell vs. the Hound, though the best fight was probably the Mountain killing Victarion.
