She has only killed the kid at Kings Landing at this point in the books. The people will probably find out that Valar Morghulis next episode or the one after.

Spoiler:
Meh, it's not really a spoiler in that case if it's a false fact

lol I intentionally just referenced Valar Morghulis rather than say what a character was going to be doing for the next few episodes based on the books so no-one would read the spoiler and understand it unless they had read the books.

Come back and people are openly discussing the events outside spoilers.

Sorry everyone watching the show who hasn't read the books.

totally agree. Every single fucking bit is "oh this was cool but it was cool when a totally different thing happened in the book as well" or "do you think X will kill Y like he does in the book?"

Yeah ok you spoilered it but half you dickheads don't put "Spoiler - book prediction" so I think it's just a spoiler in regards to the last episode.

Note the thread title. Go and set up a "Compare GoT on HBO with the book series" please.

Mods - start banning people who can't stick to the tv show please.

The spoiler policy is clear and has been posted a number of times if you've cared to read it. Aside from a few exceptions, the policy has been largely adhered to. If you have a problem with a particular post, report it so that a mod can deal with it.

Like it or not, this a series which is an adaptation of a series of novels. Inevitably, there will be comparisons. Personally, I endeavour to limit these in my posts, but there will always be certain aspects of the show that will be discussed in the context of the books. Hence the spoiler policy.

I'll be reporting posts for sure. If someone doesn't write "book comparison!" on the spoiler then they'll get a report. It's fucking boring to be honest.

I'd love to but half these morons will reply with "oh in the book blah blah"

Lets give it a shot.

Spoiler:
i didn't realise the shadow was going to kill renly, thought it was going to take him over or something, bit random. Wish there were more battle scenes but perhaps they don't have the budget for that?
I like that the girl who's been captured now has this crazy killer doing her bidding, one down three to go!
I really don't like Theon Greyjoy, the actor sucks, dunno if it's the silly beard or the fact he looks a bit like a pedo but I pretty much switch off when he's in a scene.

Yeh, unfortunately the budget doesn't allow for large-scale battles, which is a bit of a shame.

I actually think Alfie Allen is doing a great job with Theon Greyjoy, especially this season. I find the Iron Island scenes particularly engaging.

It was nice to see some of the other side of Tyrion in this episode. So far we've seen the scheming (and plotting ), but the vanity that was evident when he found out the people blamed him for Joffrey's misgivings is important to the depth of his character.

yeah i'm still loving Tyrion. Very interested to see how everything plays out given there's 3 armies in the field plus a crazy king loaded up with wildfire.
I liked the dream that Bran had - the sea being, presumably, the iron islanders under Theon since they're a seafaring race.

As someone who has read the books, I think all book comparisons should be in the book thread. And the book thread should be a spoiler tag free, don't open unless you've read all of them thing. </2c>

I like reading the ep discussions in this thread from people who haven't read the books. It's cool to see how the story is unfolding to fresh eyes.</4c>

Nothing more to add except that ep5 was boss.

Response to BGF question, may be considered a spoiler:
Spoiler:
Depends on how they play it out on screen. I've only read the first 3 books and the dragons were mainly used as a plot tool for all but 2 paragraphs iirc. It looks to me that book 2 and 3 be covered in this season.

Spoiler:
I liked Renly. Given that he got killed so quickly I have no idea what the point was of that scene between him and the queen - telling me to get her preggers. Unless it was to show her ruthless side. But I was kinda looking forward to them forming this awesome tag team....and then he got killed : (

daenerys? What about her hand maiden! That chick is fucking smoking. Needs more lesbo action IMO.

Some dragon action would be good but I'm ok if they leave that to season 3

Spoiler:
i thought marg's response to littlefinger that she doesn't want to be a queen but the queen all but confirms her ruthless ambition. its pretty obvious she's a power hungry sociopath, i mean having a fake marriage and giving a gay king children just so she has a place next to the iron throne.

yeah her maiden is hot too, in a peasant kind of way. i'm developing ser jorah mormont levels of crushing on daenerys though


also, tywin is such a boss.

with the rumours about cersei and jaime being mentioned numerous times now, i wonder if he's known about what his kids have been getting up to :S

i totally agree with gruso, if you want to mention the books at all ,fuck off to the book thread., seriously. go spoiler free mad in there
I haven't read the books, and Im two episodes behind, i dont want anything ruined.

this is why i avoid this thread mostly, for fear of having something ruined for me. I should be able to come in this thread and discuss the tv show in general, knowing if i haven't seen the latest episode, its ok cause episode related content is spoilered.
its not fucking rocket science.

Well people aren't putting "book spoiler" in so that's the issue. I don't want to read comparisons. I'd rather talk about the show as it is, and as is clearly defined by the thread title.

What's the point of that then? I honestly cannot see the problem if it is properly spoilered. If it's not (and yes, that has happened in here), then the post should be reported and the offender suitably warned/banned.

So can I now go into the book thread and tell people to "fuck off" out of there with the tv series talk?

because if i come into this thread to read about the most recent episode, i expect the content that is spoilered to be about that episode. Not to unexpectedly read something in refernce to the book that more often than not mentions something not yet seen on tv.

If the book comparison was solely episode related, then you're right it wouldn't be a problem. But it never seems to stay that way.

thats my gripe, not essentially that books are discussed per se

Look, I think there is some legitimate discussion comparing the series with the books but I think out of common courtesy we should maybe consider only talking about events from the books after they have appeared in the series.

Some of the scenes don't make a lot of sense unless you have read the books and so some referencing is going to happen.

For example: Last Episode
Spoiler:
The whole thing with the shadow beast comes across as a bit weird in the series because they conflate two completely different scenes. In the series Melissandre has to go under the castle walls then gives birth, yet Renly is killed in a tent and it's not explained why he would have a tent inside a castle.

But if you understand that Melissandre actually does this twice in the books, the first time to kill Renly and the second to help Stannis capture Renly's castle because Renly's castellan refuses to surrender to Stannis - which is what leads to Davros telling Stannis that he needs to take Kings Landing without her so he can demonstrate he has some power of his own - the reason for them doing it makes sense.

Clearly they cut this to a single scene as it's fairly repetitive and clearly they intended to do both scenes initially thus the confusion with the postern gate and Renly getting killed in a tent.


If people would just stop talking about characters that are about to die, or do something cool in the next few episodes and wait till the events happen before comparing to the books I'm sure most people wouldn't have problems with it.

I mean seriously with Arya we could just have said Valar Morghulis and everyone who has read the books would know what we are talking about. It's pretty inconsiderate to talk about what she is going to do next episode in a way that gives away what she is going to do.

that's exactly my point. i got no problem if you guys reference the book to the show, providing it doesn't give away something that hasn't happened on tv yet.
unfortunately some people just dont get it

anyway, lets move on. i have two episodes to watch still, so i need to get on that

I'd suggest talking abut comparisions between books and TV series in the book thread as there's less chance of people being upset here even if people make an honest attempt to spoiler and label.

I'd also suggest calming down a bit everyone.

Boring, lol. Read the books, then the series will seem like the boring thing.


Watching le episode tonight, already read here so I basically know everything that's happening



Rancho the two examples you gave from me weren't spoilers at all.
Spoiler:
The giants are mentioned by the Night's Watch multiple times in the series and the Arya thing is irrelevant, seeing as she killed that kid in King's Landing.

I agree with the others, take the book discussion to the book thread. It pisses me off too having people constantly moan and groan about how the story diverges, whether it's positive or negative.

It's annoying and spoilers don't alleviate the problem. Take it to the book thread you inconsiderate bastards, because that's what you all are. You're inconsiderate to the rest.

Hi.

Bracko has spoken what others have been suggesting and to be honest, the few are ruining it for the majority and it's time to stop it and bring back the community feel to this part of the woods. At the moment, it's decreasing traffic in these parts.

Book/tv comparison talk, Book talk, is directed to the threads and threads only.

Really? Because I didn't think she was awkward, I just thought that scene was terrible acting on her behalf. Still not convinced by her.

how about we make a poll and have a vote. only fair way.

two options

"discussions linking to the books can be used using spoilers marked as book spoilers"
and
"discussion about the show linking to the books should only take place in the book threads"

some of you are whinging about it even with spoilers, but frankly, i'd find it incredibly shit and annoying having to discuss the tv show in a book thread when it was originally a fucking book.

its not like we dont allow people in the book thread to talk about the tv show

im strongly against moving the discussion to the book thread because its easier discussing the tv show in only one thread, itll become pretty dead to everyone that has read the books in here. they'll just leave and discuss it in the book thread completely.

BUT

if the majority want it moved who am i to oppose.

*sigh* which part don't you get j-rod?
the issue isn't that mentioning the books is still spoilered, no matter how clear you make it. the issue is if i'm in a thread about the TV SHOW and i want to talk about the latest episode, i open the spoilers (cause ive seen the episode, if I haven't i know not to open spoilers) but i find someone has made refernce to the book, and given away something that hasn't happened yet.
No one has said discussing the tv show in the book thread, i dont know where you're going with that?
you can spolier the book discussing all you want, it doesn't help if your still giving away the story before its happened on tv.
what we are saying is you need to be considerate of what has happened on the show, if you want to reference the book, regardless of whether you spoiler it.
Its simple, just do not give away information that hasn't happened on tv. even if its spoilered.
The spoliers in this particular thread are for the purpose of hiding information related soley to the show, for people who haven't watched the latest episode yet.
I actually dont care if you compare books to episodes, as long as you only compare what HAS happened, not what WILL happen

having said all that, i quite like your idea of marking spoiler spefically BOOK SPOILER, providing people stick to that, cuase it hasn't been happening

There should be a separate thread entirely for book and tv comparisons.

Move on jrod, what's done is done.

I do however trust that all the people that have been complaining will actively contribute to this thread from here on...

what do you mean whats done is done.
like 4 people are whinging the rest dont care. thats why i suggested a poll.

anyway, i DO get it. i suggested spoilers labelling as book

s02e04 book spoiler
Spoiler:
example

as an example if youre referencing to a book.

if thats done noone can whinge, if someone doesnt spoiler correctly give them an infraction or ban.

fkn simple instead of killing this thread completely.

the few have already killed it already for everybody else. And people have voiced their dissatisfaction for crossover.
