Two Swords

Okay, okay, we broke the internet AGAIN.  Sorry about that.  I'm not to blame this time, it was HBO GO... and all you people who have HBO GO and keep trying to watch the episodes on your computers instead of on your television sets.

Anyway, the internet has been fixed, they tell me, and "Two Swords" has come and gone.  How about Maisie and Rory?  Was that great, or what?

Of course, there were lots of other great stuff in the episode too.  (Yes, I know, I'm prejudiced).  Tyrion, Tywin, Jaime, Cersei, Shae, Sansa, Jon and Sam, the return of Ser Dontos, an amazing introduction of the Red Viper and his paramour.   But that last scene kicked ass.

Anyway, hope you all saw it, hope you all liked it.

(But no, please DON'T discuss it here, I prefer you take discussions, debates, recaps, and analysis to Westeros, Winter Is Coming, Tower of the Hand, or Television Without Pity).

Next week: "The Lion and the Rose."

I can see why you put out that Winds chapter when you did. Good stuff. Can't wait for your episode next week!

It continues to amaze me how the showrunners D&D continue to absolutely nail characters and details from the books without doing a word-for-word adaptation. Awesome episode, it'll be hard to wait another week! But All Men Must Wait.

The episode was great! D&D haven't disappointed me yet with how they adapt the series to the screen. Looking forward to the rest of the season. Hope you're enjoying it as much as we, the fans, are!

Awesome episode.
The episode was awesome, especially Tyrion and the Red Vipers chilling conversation. And I really liked the Jon and Arya scenes in the episode. (My favorite characters)

It was interesting the way Arya avenged Lommy by killing Polliver, similar to the way she killed Raff in the Arya excerpt from Winds of Winter.

I really enjoy the differences between the books and TV show, because it adds a bit more content for the viewers to enjoy, something different that we won't necessarily see coming (Just like the way Talisa was killed).

Over all, the episode was 10/10 and I can't wait for the next episode!

And thank you George for creating an epic piece of literature that will undoubtedly be remembered through the ages. Keep up the good work and take your time, because I know that once you finish the last two novels in your own time, they will become masterpieces.

Thenns
Who's idea was it to make the Thenns Cannibals? They're supposed to be the civilized freefolk, proud of having laws and knowing how to forge their own weapons instead of stealing them. They better atleast make Sigorn a nice guy or Jon's going to look like a real asshole marrying Alys to him.

The rest of the Episode was great, the writers really aren't doing any of the Wildlings justice though, they didn't even mention Val and Dalla in season two or three either.

Re: Thenns
Well, fwiw, there are cannibals among the wildlings, that is stated several times in the books. But no, it's not the Thenns, and none of the cannibal wildlings have significant presence in the book. David and Dan basically just combined two wildling sub-groups, the Thenns and the ice river clans.

Long ago (when Season 1 was being announced), I asked if the show would be following the full book chronology, of if they might be rolling in parts of A Feast for Crows as appropriate, in the 4th season.

You said "Let's wait until there is a Season 4".

Well, we have a season 4, so I'm asking. And if the answer is "I can't tell you", that's fine. But I just figured I'd ask.

Daario
Overall loved the episode, though I am curious what the reasoning for changing actors for Daarios character was. I enjoyed the actor portrayal in last season and the sudden switch was a bit jarring.

Re: Daario
The old actor was cast as the lead in the new Transporter movie. He would only stay if HBO gave him more money, but they didn't.

Yes, I saw it and loved it... most especially the last scene.

But then again, many of the Arya chapters in ASoS have always been personal favorites of mine.

Many thanks to you again good ser, for creating all of this.

Thank You
I wanted to thank you for your response to my question under the subject title, "Thomas Covenant" (April first post). I honestly didn't expect one. I also wanted to explicitly state that with a lack of context, I felt the wording of my question might have come off negatively somehow - maybe - but the question was written with the utmost respect and admiration.

What is the scariest thing for you that comes out of this series? Others? Melisandre? Organized religion?

Next Episode
Lookng forward to it - unfortunately I could not watch episode 1 last night, so I will watch both in a small marathon. Excited to get a reply on my fanmail, too. I was wondering, were there any short stories in dreamsongs that stood out as the most fun to write, or just your favorite?
