I think it was to how how far Big Daddy Martell plans stretched, after all Dorn was pretty much absent from 3 of the five books.
I have a bad feeling that Talisa will steal Roose's big moment at the wedding, which would really piss me off.
I would flay the show runners if that happened. I can't see Martin allowing it, however.
He doesn't have final say in it, if any. He wrote the episode (I think) but he's not the only one who decides the content.
I am absolutely, absolutely, no matter what arranging the largest viewing party possible for this.
That would be a pretty huge departure from the books in that his wife seemingly really loved him as opposed to knifing him.
Yeah, sure. I don't think it will happen. I'm just saying it's not GRRM's decision.
Well, yes. But there's a difference between updating us on Dorne's involvement and giving us hundreds of text about a pointless, dead-end character. We've got enough of that in Bran chapters, thank you.
So, apparently Ciaran Hinds (the actor for Mance Rayder) can sing, so that bodes well for certain aspects of his character.
wait...you hate Bran!?
To be fair, It takes 5 books for Bran to finally get anywhere with his story. His pre-ADWD chapters are useful mainly for world building and giving us a perspective in the North once Theon's insecurity gets the better of him.
Rig up a bunch of red confetti and drop it on everyone at the end of the episode and burst out laughing.
When the Wyman Manderly thing happens I might be serving pies to everyone. That'd be awesome.
And maybe serve some green Jell-O pudding during Tywin's funeral?
I'm actually not sure how I'm going to react to seeing the RW. I almost gave up on the books, eventhough I was prepared for it, and I like Robb a lot more on TV. I'm more excited about the PW but that will have to wait.
Yeah, Joffrey's death is probably going to happen mid season 4.
I cant wait to see Larry William reaction to the red wedding, i will feast upon his misery.
I, for one, was relieved to see accurate characterization of the Tyrells for once. That was the person we've read about for several books now, not whatever sex-crazed, monstrously power hungry thing they had on display last season. Count me enormously pleased. Here's to more.
I'll agree with you in that she definitely should be subtle about this sort of thing. The whole doe-eyed book version was a sham, but an incredibly effective sham. On the other hand, it is pleasing that they show her as an insane sexpot because that's the way she really is.
I would sharply disagree. We are finally seeing her the way she truly is. Brilliant and savy, yes, but much more than that. Fundamentally, she is good-willed, generous, and lacking any vicious instinct, as tonight's episode put on display.
Maybe I am misremembering the books, but wasn't it sort of confirmed that Jello's characterization was more correct -- that she was a total sex-fiend but very circumspect about it?
No Strong Belwas. Everything is ruined.
I read Dance as tilting things in the other direction. Already, the only evidence against her was coming from a known agent of House Lannister. But now we've learned that even the investigations by the septons have failed to yield anything. There was also some suggestion that even the one piece of evidence against her was--well, something was strange about it. But Martin's diction was a bit too oblique for me to figure out what exactly he was trying to imply.
Oh, also, I'm going to be really annoyed if Sam the Slayer doesn't happen. Hopefully it will when the Others harass them on the way back to the Wall.
Yeah, if it doesn't that character will be totally irredeemable.
I mean, he basically is anyway. But at least give him this one thing.
