this.
so just want a general concensus. where do we draw the line on what needs to be spoilered?
season 1 has been and gone, its been on Fox, its been on dvd. If someone hasn't seen season 1, then why would they even be in this thread?
So, should we be able to talk about anything thats happened in Se01 without spoliers?
thoughts????
and yes, db its cool now, winter is coming (again)

Spesh - not willing to speculate at this stage on having a relatively 'spoiler free' zone for season 1 - that could add to more rules in here than there already are. This thread is nearly a Game of Thrones in of itself yo (Game of Posts?). I still prefer common sense apply to major plot details etc for now - I mentioned some time ago that I was posting about how amazing the ending to the Usual Suspects was in the movie thread, and Mickstah had the ending spoilt for him, so... even despite how old something is, we gotta try to not spoil it for others.

Perhaps a 'caution - spoilers' could be added to the thread title, warning potential viewers of the risk so they're fully aware they might stumble upon something they might not wanna know? just a thought for meow.

Spoiler:

no spoilers because of season 1 answer.

robert baratheon had a conversation about wanting to kill the targaryan children (being viserys and daenerys) because they could contest the throne.

gonna spoiler this part, im almost certain they explained it in this way in the tv show, but i could be mixing it up with some facts from the books, however this is ep 1 and 2 from season 1, but i'll warn in case.
Spoiler:
they werent actually exiled but escaped there with the help of illyrio who was with the targaryans in the first few episodes, who sold them to khal drogo, who himself had explained that in some way in the first or second episode if i recall.

Aerys' II Targaryen's entire reign would make for an awesome mini-series if not for the obvious cost problem.

Also Robert didn't kill the mad king, Jaime did, hence the title "Kingslayer".

I'm not sure if the series will go into depth about what happened during the siege of kings landing by the Lannisters to claim the throne for Robert.

P.S. this post isn't spoilers because it's shit that happened in the past of the story and has no bearings on the outcome

i'm following it, i was just making sure i was following correctly.
Dont forget you guys have read the books and know the story already. I haven't. It's a shit load of storyline to try and take in each episode, and there's so many characters to try and piece together.
im just get reassurance im on the right page.

Agree with other comments about pacing and characterisation being a bit of an issue this season, but overall I think the casting has been good and really enjoyed the scenes in Qarth this week.

Her name is Danaerys btw, not Khalessi, that's her title.

It's because of what he said. He's the same religion as the Red Woman (Melisandre) so because Arya saved 3 from the flame, he can give 3 lives back for her

Not entirely correct.

Spoiler:
Arya saved him (Jaqen H'gar) and two others from the fire (i.e. the servant of the red god). Hence three lives were "owed" to the red god, Jaqen does not serve the red god.

Intense episode!

Theon's capture of Winterfell was pretty hard to watch, particularly the execution of Ser Rodrick.

The Hound rescuing Sansa from the mob was all kinds of awesome ("little bird" ), and it's always good to see Tyrion belting Joff.

Stoked we're gonna see Ramsay Snow (Lord Bolton's bastard), I had feared he might have been cut...

Yep, wicked episode. So much happened. Can't wait to see them re-take Winterfell and crush the Greyjoys.

Cliffhanger ending too. Can't wait until the dragons get to a size where they can fight. I can just imagine Danaerys smashing everyone.

the kings landing scene was good. kinda enjoyed the arya/jaqen scene. his facial expression when she screamed at him... but most other stuff was meh.. that was ser amory loch as number 2???

jon and daenarys scenes were a bit meh imo... didn't like the missing dragons thing

re Ramsay - either they've kept it under wraps, or he hasn't been cast and we won't see him until season three (maybe an armored/covered shot, a la Jaqen at the end of season one).

really? I thought it was the best episode of the season so far.

Spoiler:
i knew they were going to have to have arya found, i love that petyr baelish found her and i look forward to seeing how he manipulates catelyn stark with that info and the trade. also, i recon that tywin has his suspicions as well.

I got to say, at this point im finding tyrion lannister (dinklage) less interesting. he doesnt have as much character, he makes smart decisions but so do most of the other characters in the show, now hes just seems another part of the lannister heirarchy... very proper and political.
