Spoiler:
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.

Spoiler:
yeah all the theon scenes will be so hard to watch from now.... was so angry watching it

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

ep as a whole was ok. bits of good and some bits of bad

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.

isn't cool as well fledz.

honestly guys, i'm probably the only one that doesn't care about spoilers, but i can see how frustrating it is to open a spoiler thinking it's only gonnna be about the current episode but then getting all this other DNW information

EP6:

Spoiler:
so does baelish actually realize it's arya or not? hard to tell from that sequence with tywin.

i thought that the jaqen guy killing the messenger just as he reaches tywin's chambers was stretching it a bit.. and this is from a series that has dragons and shadow babies

Ep 6 question:
Spoiler:
Did anyone else notice that Daenerys is the second person to mention that her dreams come true? Bran has mentioned it a few times, and his water/Winterfell dream came true too.

To me it points to these two characters becoming major focal points in future series

Bran had that dream in the first series... I reckon Ned Stark/Sean Bean was just the selling point to get the first series off the ground for those who hadn't read the books. it got me in! I think we are yet to see the key characters.

I still think it's Bran/Daenerys/The Old Gods that are the keys to how it all pans out

Spoiler:
Yeah having a high profile actor was probably a launch strategy but I think Ned's death was as significant a twist in the books as well i.e. he was still positioned as the main protagonist. It set the tone for the whole series, to say that any character can be killed. I'm sure most of the audience expected Renly to go to battle but that never eventuated.

Don't forget Melisandre and her weird magic shit related to the Red God. She's gonna fuck shit up with her magical uterus, pumping out shadow monsters.

yeah, i was really shocked by both of those char's deaths because it was very sudden and they seemed to be set up for bigger roles. it's good coz it really keeps you on your toes about where the story will go!

Ok, serious question and apologies to the mods if I'm over the line.

I don't understand why I got an infraction. I spoilered my post and only wrote what was related to Ep6. I have not read the books, at all, ever. I've made that clear numerous times and I was also one of the vocal ones to support removal of book discussion from this thread.

Anything that I said was me guessing what would happen, and let's face it, is not what I said kind of common sense or an educated guess? That's one of the reasons for removing book discussion, so that we can chat about what we think might happen without someone coming in and telling us we're correct or incorrect, which spoils the fun. I can see the confusion but seriously, this is ridiculous if I get a slap on the wrist for doing absolutely nothing wrong.

Episode:

Spoiler:
I like how they cast Ygritte, she seems to be exactly how I pictured her in my head, except with worse teeth. The part where she was dry humping Jon made me

The business at Winterfell was sucky. The actor that plays Theon portrays his notion self entitlement perfectly, comes across as such a bitch.

The high septon getting torn apart was even better than I imagined it would be! Too bad we didn't really know who Lollys was in the show other than the broad in the blue getting her boobs torn out of her shirt

Don't usually rate redheads but dang that wildling chick is easy to look at.

Nice episode overall, I thought the acting was a little off in some parts but still the best show on at the moment.

One small thing that bothers me, I know they have to show the characters faces/heads but everytime I see them walking around in the far north with their heads uncovered gets to me as petty as that is.

Personally I think it became that way because of the butthurt from 3/4's of the people in here, not a a select few. I'll admit the constant book to show comparisons early on were over the top, but oh look, it's based on a set of fuking books (which are rad) and there is always going to be comparisons when there is a major plot change. to ban that in this thread just adds to the sterile environment ITM has become. Just saying is all

Well yea, it would be nice to do that but how would he get the whole city guard to leave? Remember he basically emptied Winterfell by doing a decoy strike on the small town. He knew what an insult it would be to the Starks and that they would react, while he snuck around and seized the city. Shame his hostages seem to have disappeared though.

Heard murmurings from Gaming forum that all the book talk has finally been banished. Returned here to check it out after ditching this thread a few weeks back and it's great now Well done! S02E06

Spoiler:
Theon - what a ****! He's getting uglier each episode too, that mole, the shitty beard, the bad teeth, the googly eyes... 2/10 would not fuck. Glad to see the wildling escaping with Bram. Interested to see where it goes. Theon's definitely going to get what he deserves sooner rather than later.

Arya - awesome, loving how this is playing out and how her various relationships are developing. I reckon littlefinger knows who she is, or at least realises once he's left the meeting. Am assuming he left the note for her, possibly with false information, knowing she'll pass it on.

Good to see Joffrey's downfall is likely to be happening sooner than I expected. Was hoping this was Sansa's chance to get away / fake her own death but I guess she's too important for that to happen yet.

Danaerys - somebody stab the bitch. Entitlement complex or what. If this was modern day you know she'd be rocking up to the ivy pool party expecting everyone to buy her drinks

Felt like a bit of a builder episode to me . S02E06

Spoiler:
the scene between daenarys and the merchant was weak, hope she ups her game because she doesn't come across as strong enough.

Whereas Theon's character is meant to be weak as fuck. He can't even chop off a head properly! Looking forward to him being cut to pieces although I get the feeling he'll be around for a while (no idea why, I haven't read the books, gut feel)

Next ep should be good, lots happening. Though that guard who took the note from *that Stark girl who's Tywin's cup bearer* and was killed, didn't anyone notice he was carrying that note? She didn't tell her trained assassin to retrieve it. Plot hole?

The Greyjoys went to war with the Starks, all the older Greyjoy males were killed to death and they were defeated.
Theon was given to the Starks by his father as a hostage, he was about 10 at the time.
He then stayed for around 10 years and was raised by them as one of their own, as opposed to a captive.

I like that they included the sex scene with Osha. Realistically, it probably wasn't critical that she sleep with him in order to get Bran and Rickon out, but it goes a long way to showing how weak Theon really is.

i'm really digging the cinematography this season. the subtle way that the set designs/ costumes etc are all bathed in certain colour to represent the region and blend with the house colour. ie; kings landing is always washed in reds and yellows and feels summery. while winterfell always has that cold blue tinge to everything
