The Pointy End

Yes, tonight is the episode I scripted for GAME OF THRONES -- episode eight, "The Pointy End."

(The first episode to have a title, FWIW. I argued strongly in favor of episode titles, rather than just numbers).

No, I haven't seen it yet. I'll be seeing it for the first time tonight, same as you folks.

Many of you will want to comment afterward, I know. Again, the best place for that discussion is not here. Head over to Winter Is Coming, to Westeros, to Tower of the Hand, to Television Without Pity, to the HBO boards.

In a series like this, scenes sometimes get moved from episode to episode, so not everything you'll see tonight will be mine(except in the sense that is all based on my books, of course). F'rinstance, the bit in the previews, with Tyrion and Bronn in the Mountains of the Moon, that was originally meant to be in episode seven, and was moved into "The Pointy End" during editing. So that scene, and the encounter with the clansmen, was written by David and Dan.

Kind of fitting that "The Pointy End" airs even as I am working on my season two script, "Blackwater." A much tougher assignment, by the way. All those damned boats...

Titles
I thought that each episode has had a title. Last weeks episode had a title card for "You Win or You Die". And I knew the episode that would crown Viserys by the title A GOLDEN CROWN :-D

On another note though, are you only penning one episode per season?

Re: Titles
i believe he meant that his episode was the first one to be given a title, and the rest were given them later after he lobbied for the practice.

Re: Titles
While the show was still being produced, David and Dan only numbered each episode. They had no titles at all (except for George's) until relatively late in the game.
