Really liking how they're portraying the Tyrells this year.

Sansa's smile there almost had me tearing up.

That poor girl just gets thrown from fire to hotter fire over and over again.

Queen of Thorns has been Perfect in her portrail of that character IMO.

LOL at Sansa

marrying Loras

.. Can't wait to see how that works out for her... ... ... ... teehee...

Epic episode last night. At this rate, S3 could easily be my favorite if they keep it up. Of course, the book is a huge part in that, but still... The actors and actresses are doing an amazing portrayal...

Jamie tugged at my heartstrings last night when he was wallowing in the mud... Dany's ending was so epic... I genuinely felt bad for Theon... I love how they're setting up Hound v. Berric...

Best show in TV history...

The one thing that isn't conveyed as well in the show as it is in the book is that Sansa has had a lady boner for Loras ever since the knight's tournament in Ned Stark's honor when he was named Hand of the King. They allude to it some on the show, but in the books she already was in love with Loras from afar.

So in the book it is literally a dream come true scenario for her. To marry the man of her dreams and get to leave King's Landing for Highgarden.

Of course without her inner most thoughts, it is impossible to convey that on camera. Plus, the show runners probably figured that it wasn't that essential because she has been so tormented in King's Landing that she would probably marry an untrained gorilla if it meant getting the hell out of King's Landing.

But for the non book readers this is not just a means to an end to get out of King's Landing, this is a dream come true for her.

Book 3 was my favorite probably, so I'm surprised I'm loving this season. Season 3 is pivotal for a tv show and it's killing it right now, love it.

I've watched the end of the latest episode maybe 3 times now and each time I cant contain an evil laugh when she rides out with her army behind her and the dragons overhead.

Awesome.

Awesome.

Me too! I have watched the end several times today as well. Love the part

when she tells him "A dragon is not a slave" in Valyrian and he looks like he is about to sh!t his pants.

edit: just realized some of you may not have watched it yet

Well that's interesting because from my point of view she has been THE most gullible and naive character in the series.

    • You do realize no one wanted RyanCare/ObamaCare Lite to pass, right? If anything, the media and democrats has made themselves absolute fools lately. STILL no evidence Trump colluded with Russia whatsoever, which is quite the funny irony in this whole conspiracy. Trump inherited a mess. Hard to fix this mess when you got crybaby globalists and dems everywhere.    
    • I hate this DG analogy so much.  It only makes sense in the context of an efficient market where teams are rational, have perfect information, and scouts are always right about players.  But we have ample evidence that is not the case.  Sometimes, talented players just don't work out.  Injuries derail careers.  Teams make oddball picks.  Sometimes, you are just wrong about a player (see Ealy, Kony). I like him a lot, but DG's habit of always trading up / never trading down may ultimately be his downfall in CAR.  It results in a lack of depth across the roster and it makes your roster very vulnerable to i) injuries (see 2015 vs. 2016) and ii) missing on evals.  If we missed on Funchess (jury still out), that hurts - but missing on Funchess when you traded multiple picks to get him compounds the issue. Trading up and trading down are both valid strategies - but I'd suggest balancing the two strategies would improve your chances of long-term success.
    • He is worth #8 pick. I'd like to see him next to Newton on the field.
