Sapper, I haven't read all the books but I can tell you that this season should wrap up all of book #2 and if the "Red Wedding" is at the end of book #3 (which I think it is but I haven't read book #3) then it will be at the end of season 4 because they announced that they would be breaking book #3 into two seasons (3 and 4).

If that made any sense with all the numbers :lol:

Ha, yea well it has been long enough since I read them, the numbers run together.

FWIW, those of you that hate Joffrey and Theon that haven't read the books, should completely respect how well those 2 actors have pulled their respective characters off.

hating a character doesn't mean the actor did a great job.

i don't think the actor that plays joffrey is good.... at all.

They are rushing.

I was able to start reading this weekend and am excited about seeing the story in more detail. There was a chapter in the books that explained the relationship between Ned, Jaime, the Starks and the Lannisters better than the entire 1st season did. I think the chapter was represented as Ned and Robert eating on the king's road on their way from Winterfell to King's Landing(where they discuss Dany marrying Drogo).

I can easily see how many scene's can't be done because of budget problems and limited time. The first night with Dany and Drogo was done well imo. If it were to be done perfectly it'd end up being a 10-15 min scene and it didn't justify that much screen time.

Spoilers:

That will probably end up being Jeyne Westerling, but there is speculation that TV will make her an eventual obvious Lannister plant (which is actually touched on in the books, at least implied that the Westerlings were in on the whole RW plot)... I am assuming the whole different name thing is a temporary cover... When Oona Chaplin (Charlie Chaplin's granddaughter) got the part, it was reported that she was playing a "Jeyne" but they didn't specify. We already say Jeyne Poole, so that only leaves one other Jeyne IIRC...

Also, I'm still not convinced the Reeds are gone... DAMMIT I HOPE NOT!

Az.

If that's her thats a pretty significant change from the books.

The girl is really pretty tho.

Looks like the Wildling woman is going to absorb all of the Reed's plotline.

Mistake IMO

Agreed, and you are very much entitled to your opinion. Have you read the series? I don't say that rhetorically, I very much enjoy hearing opinions of readers and non-readers alike. Hate his acting or love it, he nails Joff.

1. Why don't you guys use the spoiler tags? or are u just too lazy? *shrugs*

2. With the ratings GOT gets and the cult like following it hs I don't see HBO cancelling it unless it falls which I only see it growing.

haven't read the books yet. might pick up the first one sometime this summer.

he may play the character well but everything seems corny and fake to me when joffrey has center stage.

I just started the first book yesterday...so far from what I've read, Joffrey is just as much of an asshole in the book..dudes facial expressions alone are enough to scare me just watching it...I think he's doing a good job, imo

I think they did a great job with Theon sacking Winterfell. After the death of Ned Stark, GRRM probably will never out-shock the readers again quite like that, but this was pretty sudden in the show of the non-readers I watch it with. In the book, he conspires on his way to Winterfell for a few chapters before landing there, so the shock isn't nearly as big.

Re-watched it last night, and still think Alfie and Jack pull off Theon and Joff so well. Again, there really is no true villain or hero in the books. Joffrey is just an idiot and Theon is incredibly conflicted. Casual viewers might not have picked up on the fact that the Starks kidnapped Theon at an early age, but Theon looked up to Ned like his real father (Balon, his real dad, is a total dick to Theon btw). He obviously doesn't want to truly hurt or kill anyone, and wants to run Winterfell like Ned did (He doesn't decapitate Rodrick in the book, but I liked the change as it kind of built his arc). Going to be interesting to see how they play out both characters.
