    Yeah, I’m surprised about that too. I don’t think he’d be arrested if he confessed… He’s already “repented.”

    That’s true. A cool sequence would be… Stannis’ army is getting closer to Winterfell. Sansa runs to light the fire in the Broken Tower. Brienne and Pod ride to Winterfell. Ramsay gets Sansa back and is about to rape her, but she slits his throat. Winterfell is a mess and Theon and Sansa are trying to get out together… and then they meet Brienne. So they’re stuck in the oncoming battle. IDK. I just really want Sansa to kill Ramsay.

    I think I like Nymeria Sand the most on the show.

    Yeah it shouldn’t be a problem. It would just be a bit weird to come out with that now and not earlier. In the books Lancel didn’t join until the Swords and Stars were already reformed so he didn’t delay like he will be in the books.

    Yeah something along those lines could happen.

    I don’t really care for any of them so far. My favorite is Arianne even if she isn’t there 😛

    I can’t stand them anymore especially Obara, we get it you’re Oberyn’s daughter

    Found that gif and comment. It’s hard not to agree with it.

    On the show, Olenna is going to do it. She’ll just reveal the incest, I guess… But they’re just rumors. Lancel may be used as the proof.

    Arianne 🙁 I thought they could pull it off.

    BUT SHE FIGHTS FOR DORNE. WHO DO YOU FIGHT FOR?

    I loved that comment from Olenna on the show. Diana Rigg is amazing. I miss her scenes with Tywin.

    Ahhhhh I’d be so excited if they did the Battle of Winterfell this season. It would probably save Season 5, along with Dany flying away. Just imagine… Stannis being awesome (I can’t believe I hated him before…), Ramsay hopefully dying, and Brienne being forced to pick sides between killing Stannis and rescuing Sansa. AHHHHHHHHHHH.
    Of the 4 characters alive in the books but going to be dead on the show… we know Barristan is one of them. Who’s the other 3? Stannis, if they do a Battle of Winterfell? They keep on hyping how he has MORE men than Roose… which, in GoT, means he’s going to lose. (Then again, there were shots in the trailer of Stannis’ camp on fire, which may cost a loss of men.) Ramsay, maybe being brought to justice by Sansa? But Alfie Allen mentioned that the Boltons may be even stronger after this season, I think, so IDK. Brienne…? Oh gosh no. That would be way too dark, even for Game of Thrones, especially if Stannis dies too. Too many victorious villains.
    Bronn is surely one of them… so that’s 2 for sure. I’m worried about the other two.

    Also I agree with this http://www.reddit.com/r/asoiaf/comments/36mirv/spoilers_all_both_the_things_that_sustained_the/

    I FIGHT FOR OBERYN MARTELL, MY FATHER, WHO IS A MARTELL…NAMED OBERYN.

    Yeah Olenna is epic. everything she says is cool.

    Yes, all those things happening would really help redeem this season.

    Mance is also one of them, so we probably only have one left. And yes, I think there’s a good chance of that someone being in the North.

    Yes they have a good point. I haven’t really though much about that, but it’s true we haven’t seen the Frey’s and they’re right, the Bolton’s fall (assuming it happens) will be more thanks to Stannis, not thanks to any Northern action.

    Also read a comment from last episode where someone complained about travelling in that world. Littlefinger leaves to go to KL 2-3 episodes ago and is already there, while Stannis has barely moved on his march to Winterfell and Jaime and Bronn only just arrived in Sunspear. The comment also said the books have a problem with this sometimes but I don’t remember any specific places it’s happened in the books.

    I AM OBARA SAND. DORNE IS MY HOME. WHO DO YOU FIGHT FOR. MY FATHER TOOK ME TO COURT.

    Oh, I forgot Mance. So that’s Bronn, Barristan, and Mance. Who else… why do I think it’s Stannis… I mean, they made him so much more likable this season, which makes sense if they want him dead.

    And there really is no hope, or at least feels like there isn’t.

    That’s true, but it would be annoying if they took forever to travel so I’m not complaining. 😛

    Nah I’ve liked the guy for a long time 😛

    Yeah they’re just not doing a very good job of keeping the stories running. It’s like they split it into segments. First story was Ned and his findings in season 1, then it was the War of five Kings and now it’s post-Tywin KL. While in the books all these things are really well connected.

    It’s fine to skip some travelling but IMO it’s annoying when one person takes several episode to travel a distance while another character takes the same time to travel more than double that distance. Just bad plotting by the showrunners IMO. They needed to get rid of LF so they call him to KL, except he shouldn’t have been able to get there.

    Has anyone else noticed this. I don’t know if it’s just a coincidence but Jon Snow, Tyrion and Daenarys all killed there mothers when they were born. Could it mean something?

    There’s theories out there that it means they’re supposed to be the three heads of the dragon and the people who will ride Dany’s dragons. Most agree that R+L=J is true, so people wonder if Tyrion could also be a Targaryen with Aerys being the father. I don’t know really know what I think. It’s definitely interesting though.
    There’s so many theories out there about who the last rider could be. Tyrion, Griff and Bran are probably the three most popular picks.

    You’ve been a reader of the books for a long time 😛

    Brienne, Stannis, and Dany are the people who are capable of making Westeros a better place. I would say Jon too but he’s too far away. And with Brienne, she can’t do much, but at least save Sansa and kill the Boltons. Dany needs to get her butt over there.

    That’s true. Plot convenience.

    Yep, and all had possible Targaryen fathers. Could be the 3 riders but I feel like it’s too “convenient” to just have 3 riders without conflict. I like the idea that Bran will control one while Dany controls another and Jon takes the last dragon. More conflict.

    I finished them sometime around Christmas 2012 or early 2013, so only about a year longer than you 😛
    I’ve considered reading through them again before WoW is released but I don’t know yet.

    Still worried about Dany though 😛

    I agree I wouldn’t want them on the road for 10 episodes either, but I feel like there’s other, better ways to solve that than seemingly have LF get to KL in a matter of days or a few weeks at most.

    That would create conflict. Dany would have one stance, Jon likely another and who knows with Bran and his apprenticeship with Brynden.

    I would like to reread them, but probably not before TWoW.

    Shhh, Dany is good 👿

    Yeah. Like in Season 2, Littlefinger went from KL to Harrenhaal to Storm’s End or the other way around and then ended up back in KL. And this season LF went from the North to KL very quickly while it took Robert and co. a few episodes back in Season 1.

    I’m not sure why, but I don’t think Brynden will help Dany.

    Yes and she means well, but I’m just not always sure that it ends well 😛

    Yeah such a trip would take him months in real time. Cersei probably sent for him around the time Loras went to prison, but you don’t get the impression that Loras has been in prison for months or even weeks.

    Yeah I kinda get that vipe from him to. Not sure why either.

    Of course, but what if she doesn’t learn. That’s my biggest worry about her.

    Too bad Bob Marley is dead. They would have made an awesome duo 😛

    This was quite the episode, a very good one. Possibly my favorite of the season.

    The minus first. Sansa’s story is not doing very well. It’s turning into a Theon redemption story, like we feared.
    Brienne just hanging around waiting for something to happen.
    And that poor old lady.

    Jon’s headed North, and Sam and Gilly got into trouble. For a second there I was worried that we’d get another rape, but luckily Ghost was around to stop that from happening.
    Poor Maester Aemon is dead. I wonder what this means for Sam. Will he go to Oldtown or not. Part of me thinks yes, since Aemon told Gilly to head south, part of me thinks no since if that’s what they want why not just have him die on the ship just like in the books.

    I guess you could say we both got what we wanted in a way. Bronn was poisoned like you predicted, but he didn’t die like that like I was worried about 😛
    I think this was the best Sand Snake scene we’ve gotten so far. No japping about who their dad was. This scene actually made them look dangerous.
    I’m really failing to see the point in Jaime’s trip to Dorne though. Nothing is coming of it. Even this scene with Jaime was pretty pointless and didn’t really bring anything to the table.

    Finally Cersei got what she had coming 😈 I liked the scene with her and Margaery, especially because it pretty much was exactly like in the books. Correct me if I’m wrong, but Margaery also said “get out, you hateful bitch!” in the books didn’t she? At least she said something very similar. And it was Lancel who confessed like in the books. Only question is why not arrest her immediately after Lancel’s confession? This makes it look like the Sparrow was scheming a bit.

    Tyrion really proved to everyone what a great fighter he is 😆 I wonder what will happen to them now. Will Jorah get kicked out or does he get to go too since he brought Tyrion with him. If Dany just leaves this makes her a bit of a hypocrite, since she must realize that Jorah didn’t become a pit fighter by choice.

    It was nice to see Stannis oppose Mel and her creepy ideas with Shireen. I just hope he doesn’t bend eventually. That would also be very un-Stannis like.

    And I disagree with Daario’s quote. “All rulers are butchers or meat”. Ned was neither.

    The episode covered a lot and really set up the next few.

    What did Sansa pick up? My brother said it was a corkscrew. I loved her conversation with Ramsay though, about Tommen.
    But I am bothered by the way her story is going. Yes, she’s kind of rebelling, but I wish she’d manipulate Ramsay. Like, imagine Margaery in that situation. I wish they made Sansa tried to follow Marg’s actions and manipulate Ramsay.
    10 seconds of Brienne. 🙁
    THE OLD LADY. WHY DID SHE DIE. NO.

    I would’ve hated another rape scene… so glad it didn’t go that way. But the scene still seemed kind of “extra”.
    I’m so glad they mentioned Egg with Aemon. Such a sad, but nicely done, scene.
    They mentioned Oldtown in an earlier episode so I think Sam will go.

    I actually liked the Sand Snakes this episode! But another unneeded boob scene. :roll: But why did Tyene give him the antidote? Did she actually kind of like him?
    So Bronn will be killed by Areo, I bet.
    Yeah, Dorne, pointless.. Nothing amazing is coming out of it.

    Cersei 🙁
    I remember Marg saying the word “bitch” but I don’t remember what else. Still, a good scene. 😛 I was excited when it came up because it was a book scene. Season 5 has barely had any book scenes and it’s disappointing. So they’re valuable when they’re there.
    I hate the High Sparrow. But loved his dialogue with Olenna. The hips and the knees 😛

    WE NEED MORE TYRION SCENES! They’re always good. I’m so glad he met Dany. I think Tyrion needs a Dany in his life and Dany needs a Tyrion. So excited for these two.
    Judging by the leaked pictures, Tyrion sits beside Dany at her wedding, while Jorah fights in the pits below. So… I’m assuming she rewards him if he survives, or something like that?

    I HATED how they made Stannis kind of think about burning Shireen. She is Princess Shireen of House Baratheon, and she is his daughter! If he agrees to it, they’ll ruin Stannis for me.

    Daario is a killer, not a politician. Dany needs to stop listening to him.

    Because Sansa went and trusted Theon that’s why. Sorry I mean Reek 😛
    I didn’t even notice she ever picked anything up…

    Yeah the Egg mention was cool.
    If he leaves he won’t arrive until sometime next season. But I would love to see Sam meet Arya like in the books.

    I don’t hate the boob thing as much as I initially did. I think it made a little sense. I could see Tyene acting seductively and playing around with Bronn just to then watch him collapse. It made a bit more of an impact to have him get up and over to the bars than if he had just been sitting down when the bleeding started. But they certainly could have done it another way. Boobs aside, at least the scene gave us some female empowernment after the Gilly and Sansa incidents.
    It would be pretty weird if she did. Maybe she was a bit amused by him and since his death wasn’t good for anything she let him live. I guess it could also be some more female empowernment that she let him live. She doesn’t fear him enough to feel a need to get rid of him. Like he’s insignificant enough not to bother.
    I really hope so. Areo needs to get an epic scene. And they basically teased it when Doran asked if he remembers how to use it.

    Yes I loved how it played out pretty much exactly like in the books. We don’t get those scenes very often and then sometimes when we do they change the lines a bit and it’s NEVER for the better. And every time they do it fans complain because so of those lines are so iconic. You’d think they would just stop it now. Like Janos’ execution. It was a good scene, but would have been better if they played it out like in the books.
    Yeah the High Sparrow’s scenes were pretty awesome in this episode. Loved how Cersei was listening and you could just see her eyes darting around as she was getting more and more nervous.

    I don’t know, I’m okay with the amount of Tyrion we’re getting right now. I like him and something funny usually comes from him, but I don’t know how much more they can give him right now. Maybe now with Dany we’ll see some more from him.
    He must somehow get to Meereen. Question is if it’s in Dany’s party of if he goes as a pit fighter and that’s how he ends up in the pit.

    I liked how he kicked her out of the tent (I’m not sure if he’s done that before) Hopefully he doesn’t change his mind, because that would ruin his character.

    Yeah when it comes to political decisions he’s hardly the right person to take advice from.

    She picked up something from a barrel. People say it’s a corkscrew. I don’t care, I just want it up Ramsay’s throat 👿

    Yes, a Sam and Arya meeting would be nice. Arya won’t be that entertaining alone in Braavos, so she should get interactions with others. Ex. Mace Tyrell and Meryn Trant.

    Yes, showing your breasts in Dorne – a much more sexually liberal place – isn’t all that far-fetched. Plus, people are saying that she did it to get Bronn’s heart rate up, to quicken the effects of the poison. It was also an expression of her power, to toy with him and such. But still, they could’ve done all that without constantly showing them on camera…
    Personally, I don’t care if they show female nudity as long as they show the same amount of male nudity… but they don’t. Which is why people think the show is sexist. It isn’t, but it does show a lot of breasts, sadly.
    It’s weird that the actress is the same age as my brother and two years older than I am.

    I love how Cersei gave Margaery some leftovers 😆
    Lena Headey is amazing.

    I agree… but I just want more Dany scenes. There was so much North this episode.

    A corkscrew could be a good sign 🙂 like she’s ready to protect herself.

    Oh yes! we’re getting overdue with seeing how Mace is doing in Braavos. Trant could be the last book death we haven’t gotten yet!

    That actually does make sense also with her constant asking about his arm and head. Like she knew it was close to happening but was getting impatient so she sped up the process bit.
    Yeah they did do an awful lot of closeups on them…
    Yes we do need the equality. I saw on Vanity Fair that apparently there’s been a call for Daario nudity. And the thing is from what I’ve read most of the male actors are very willing, saying it’s only fair when so many of their female colleagues have done it.
    Wow yes, she is young. She only just turned 19 in March.

    Yeah, not a veiled insult at all 😛 “I had some for supper just last night” I’m happy that Marg threw it at her.
    Yes and she seems so likable in interviews 🙂

    Yeah she’s taken a bit of…I wouldn’t say backseat, but not quite as prominent as earlier. But I guess that makes sense given the books they’re adapting now. Most of the action in those books was in the North.

    Plus she’s been telling Theon to light the candle, so. 😀

    Oh yeah! So it’s Trant, Bronn, and Barristan, and one more… Hopefully Ramsay. Some say it could be Olenna. Like, Littlefinger kills her because she’s stabilizing the realm rather than Varys killing Kevan. It would be very shocking, yes, but NOT OLENNA.

    Daario is a very sexualized character, so it’s not like it doesn’t make sense. If a woman was in his place, we would’ve gotten tons of close-ups on the body.

    It’s interesting to see Natalie Dormer’s Margaery blow up like that. The book version was younger and wasn’t shown to be as big of a manipulator, so I wasn’t as surprised when Margaery got mad in the books.

    That’s true, not enough Dany stuff to adapt.

    True. But I guess they needed more weapons for the fight scene 😛

    You still forgot Mance 😛

    I doubt Olenna dies.

    It does make sense considering how he spent the majority of his time in the books.

    I still don’t know how much book Margaery is playing and how much she’s just being herself 🙂

    But a whip! You can’t win with a whip. You can just be annoying, like Nym was to Bronn.

    Oh yeah! So it’s Mance, Trant, Bronn, and Barristan. That’s a little… boring.

    I hope she doesn’t, but she doesn’t seem as safe as she did before.

    We don’t get enough scenes with book Margaery to tell. But I’m sure she’s intelligent… Olenna likes her, and Olenna hates idiots.

    That’s true. And Tyene used her daggers more than Nymeria did…

    Are you sure he said 4 characters and not just at least 4 😛

    It would be criminal to kill the Queen of Thorns, nothing less.

    Definitely intelligent, but it’s hard to tell since we don’t get POV’s from her and the character with the biggest opinion on her usually ends her thoughts with “bitch from Highgarden” 😛

    Ah you beat me to the breaking news 😛 Euron and Sam’s family 🙂
    Now I predict Balon dies in episode 10 this season 😛

    Gah I’m googling it right now… IDK who said 4 anymore.

    Do you see her surviving the series?

    😆 She’s not as prominent in the books.

    So we’ve got one casting call for a pirate, not two. Some people say it could be for Victarion, if the Daario=Euron theories are true… But IDK. I’d rather it be Euron and they cut out Victarion. Besides, Dany got her 93 ships from Daario on the show, so Vic doesn’t need to sail to Meereen.
    Unless they just don’t want to release two casting calls and the basic outlines for both Euron and Vic are very similar, therefore they’re able to just cast two actors from the same audition.

    Daniel Portman (some guy who works on the show) said that Episode 10 would break the Internet. I STILL NEED STONEHEART

    Pretty sure GRRM said it. Or said something.

    Yes. Book series more than show though.
    WHAT? More theories. Daario=Euron sounds pretty weird.

    Yeah Liam Cunningham said that too. I’m guessing it’s the Jon stabbing. Some are guessing episode 10 will be called “For the Watch”

    Episode 9 synopsis.
    Jon returns to the Wall; Arya runs into someone from her past; Mace visits the Iron Bank; Stannis faces a difficult decision; Daenerys oversees a celebration of athleticism.

    Arya will kill Trant. Hopefully the Stannis decision won’t be regarding Shireen. And the pit stuff will obviously happen.
