    Hmmm, odd.

    The charater I'm most anxious to meet? Oberyn Martell. I hope they make a good casting decision. It's time for Dorne to make a mark on the show.
    Spoiler Spoiler - Recent episode


    If we're keeping everything recent-ish in spoilers, perhaps it's best if the book readers didn't tantalise us with future events, as some may also consider this a bit spoilery, even when no actual details are given?

    It's really not the perfect cliffhanger. You'll understand why, but I won't say anymore.

    Of course there are plenty of future events to be excited about. It'd be pretty strange if the most climatic moment was in the middle for the series.

    And don't worry, unless you get outright spoiled, you won't guess what happens or when it happens. This series is the peak of unpredictability.

    About a year ago, book readers had a collective laugh about this Youtube comment. Now you guys understand why.

    The best Youtube reaction is still one when youknowwho gets his youknowwhat chopped off in season 1. I won't post it here as it includes swearing an the "n word"... but you've probably seen it.

    I'd like to add that the acting has really been improving as the series progressed. Someone give Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Michelle Fairley some awards already. Darn.

    My favorite newcomer has been Diana Rigg as Olenna Tyrell. She's just like I imagined her from the novels, with the exception of her height (she's described as really tiny in the books). Dishing out trolls to everyone, even her own family. Iwan Rheon as you-know-who has been killing it as well.

    I can't help but feel a tiny bit disappointed about Tormund. Inappropriate content edited out. I guess he didn't quite... measure up.

    Edit: Here's an amazing video of the showrunners talking about the event that transpired last episode. Obviously, it contains spoilers.

    Yeah, I think the casting has been excellent. Ciaran Hinds has been underused so far, but other than that as you say Dianna Rigg has been excellent. Get her in a room with Tywinn Lannister for 60mins and I'd be happy! Paul Kaye has been great as well.

    I want a romantic comedy with Tywin and Olenna as main characters.

    Hey, I have an idea. Even though the TV series covers the world of ASOIAF as well as it possibly can, some details and connections always go unexplained. How about we book readers write follow-ups to each episode explaining these references without spoiling any future events?

    For example:

    Spoiler Spoiler - Season 3 Episode 9 spoilers: "Bread and salt"

    It's based on a true story.

    I'd see it as more of a 'Married with Children' show, than a romcom.

    Shhhhhhhhhexy.

    EDIT: Regarding spoilers, the free UK paper (often found on public transport) The Metro had a full page 3 article about "that scene" on Wednesday. Needless to say, a lot of people were spoiled even though the episode aired about 36 hours ago.

    Very satisfied. Some things just have to be altered or cut out entirely for budget and time reasons, or because the original version doesn't translate very well into the screen. But all the important parts are there, and they're masterfully done.

    Although there are so many small alterations piling up, non-book readers would feel very confused if they decided to start reading on the third book instead of the first.

    Great season finale! The ending was a little underwhelming, though.

    Season 1 finale "Holy crap, dragons!"
    Season 2 finale "Holy crap, white walkers!"

    Compared to that, the ending of this episode wasn't nearly as exciting. I really thought they were going to show a glimpse of Stoneheart in the last seconds. It would've had that kick to it. I guess it'll have to wait until season 4.

    A really underwhelming finale. I stick by my statement that the scene at the end of the previous episode would have been a better way to end the season. This seemed more like a season premiere! Best part was Hodor "hodoring" down the well.

    I don't think so. It's a good cliffhanger when you only have to wait a week for the aftermath, but a whole year? People would go insane.

    Better than ending without any sort of cliffhanger. As you said, the endings of the first 2 seasons really tantalised viewers whilst the ending of this season was:

    They tantalized us while still being greatly satisfying. They were "hell yeah" moments.The RW is not one of those moments. Better to end with no cliffhanger at all than an emotionally shocking one.
