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...

A Song of Ice and Fire series: Number one Amazon's bestseller list!
Really looking forward to tonight's episode! And I think it's great that you argued for episode titles.

BTW, George, did you know that your 4-book boxed set of ASOIAF is now number one on Amazon's bestseller list in ANY category? (the low rating is due to the price of the Kindle-bundle, it has nothing to do with the books themselves). A Game of Thrones was number one on the Fantasy-list for a while, but was recently pushed to second place.

And if you look at the four bestselling books on the eBook Fantasy-list, they all belong to the ASOIAF-series!
