Sometimes I wonder if the book is just written so well or if the writers on the show are that good. Every jab from Tyrion is just so fulfilling it makes me sad when we move on to another scene. At least things are finally falling into place and feels like its building up steam to something epic.

I haven't read books in years, but after this show is done I'll have to get a set of these.

Best way I can describe it is that Tyrion wields words like some characters in the series wield their swords. He's sharp, precise, and deliberate.

tyrion is the one thing that consistently makes the show worth watching. all the other interesting stories all feel like theyre on pause and now the little girls is going in reverse lol. its hard to wait for the big payoff but i hope itll be stretched out over many episodes and not just one mega mind blowing last episode. titty totals were very low.

so i take it the one girl will eventually be reunited with her wolf somehow yeah?

Still an amazing series. Tyrion is an awesome character. I can't wait to see what happens next. This show is starting to surpass Breaking Bad as the best on TV right now imho. It's also holding viewers and is a juggernaut on Sunday nights.

I wonder if last night's episode will turn off some of the more vanilla fans out there. I did wonder how the shadow being born was going to be shown and now that is has been down now feel like some folks may just not like the graphicness, strangeness, or magicalness of it.

If anything, the scene was even creepier than described in the book. I thought it was great, and Davos' reaction was brilliant.

I thought it was a very good ep overall. The only scene I didn't like was the Joffrey-Ros one:

When that scene happened my jaw hit the floor, but in a good way. I thought it was creepy and very well acted and animated.

The Joffrey scene repulsed me, which I think is the point. It's all leading to a showdown between Joffrey and Tyrion.

a little OT but is anyone else getting the GoT game for the art book?

I haven't read the books but if Joffrey wins in a showdown with Tyrion, that would ruin it for me.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Joff in this show does seem turned up to 11. He's a little spoiled brat in the books, and certainly loves toying with and torturing people, but he's sadistic little bastard in this show. The shadow birth scene, I don't know. It certainly had the creepiness down, I guess when I read that scene from Clash of Kings I just didn't really try to picture it in my mind. Seeing it on screen just had me kind of awestruck.

I kind of pictured the shadow scene like Kif giving birth in Futurama, with lots of squishy sounds, and then black liquid all over the place. I can't remember much from the first two books, but outside of the stuff with Daenerys, isn't that scene one of the first instances of magic being directly deployed in the books? I seem to remember little supernatural stuff before that happened, but it's been so long since.

It's probably the most overt use of magic in the books, aside from

I can't really think of any others aside from the stuff with Dany.

Oh yeah I did forget the wargs, I guess there's a fair amount of magic really. It's just not D&D style magic, nobody throwing fireballs or something.

You should be. The books are pretty addictive.

If it helps, I don't think having read the books has diminished my enjoyment of the show at all.
