    Real quick mini rant and an omission that will make me rage:

    Spoiler:
    One of my favorite parts of The Red Wedding build up is how Grey Wind senses the impending betrayal by the Frey family and growls at a few of the Frey men when Robb arrives at the Twins. The Direwolves have barely been shown this season, and this would be one of the last times they will be able to show him and it's immensely important to the story. Robb didn't keep his wolf close and it cost him dearly. I understand that the budget went to the dragons this year, but this needs to be shown.

    I agree about the wolves! Where the hell are they?

    They are kind of just a little important in the books but non existent. Especially this season

    We saw Ghost in the first episode saving Samwell. We saw Shaggy and Summer in like the second episode. I honestly can't even remember seeing Greywind. Forget about Nymeria. The show doesn't want to even bother confusing people with the wolf dreams, which is kind of understandable.

    The absence of wolves isn't bothering me overmuch. I wasn't really happy with how they looked and it's just more budget money when they're already strained. Also, they've already cut a lot of the nuances from the books, so I think
    Spoiler:
    Grey Wind sensing danger is just going to be one of those things. I mean, Robb's going to be dead by the end of the season anyway, so is it really that important to develop his wolf's abilities when they're already trying to fit in everything else that's going on?

    I can see what you guys mean, and it makes sense. Doesn't make me not hate it though.

    Spoiler:
    I guess it's not so much about developing the wolf abilities. It's more about showing how much of an asset the direwolves can be if the Stark's would only let them. It also shows how Robb should have listened to his mother. He thought he had everything in control and he lost. He was incredibly nearsighted during this whole campaign and this is just one of the examples. It probably won't be included. Just hoping.

    Now that you're talking about it, I'm wondering how they'll show Arya seeing
    Spoiler:
    Catelyn's body and pulling her out of the river through Nymeria's eyes. I can't see how they could not show this, it's kind of important to Arya's development and to what happens next in her story.

    Just watched episode 7, and I want them to skip ahead to... you know. This episode was incredibly boring. I don't appreciate all the changes they're making, either. All the nonsense with Robb's wife needs to end. I could probably tune out until the last episode and not miss anything. Also, seriously Osha, get the hell out of here. You're not supposed to be here and all you do is bitch at Bran.

    I'm wondering how they do the casting call for the hundreds of naked women in this series. Is that what they normally do for work? Are they professional naked women extras? Do they have careers after this? Yes, the episode was so unimpressive I was considering the extras' career paths because that has to be more interesting.

    And episode 8... can we just make this the All Tyrion Channel? Love him.

    I really hope the actor who plays Joffrey continues to act and eventually becomes Lucius Malfoy in a Harry Potter remake. That is my new dream. Unfortunately Matt tells me he doesn't want to act anymore after this show. He's just so great at being a shit, I'd love to see him do something else.

    Wow, Daario reminds me of when Fabio used to do those I Can't Believe It's Not Butter commercials. I thought the guy playing Mero was going to be Daario, that would have been awesome.

    I actually loved the last episode, and I think it redeemed the preceeding 2 a lot. I agree about Osha. Also, Shae has done porn, FYI. I'm pretty sure it's been discussed here.

    i am so glad they didn't do Daario the way he is described in the books.

    Well, Shae aside, because she actually has some acting to do. I'm more wondering about the girls who are in the brothel or whatever.

    For Daario, I can see why they didn't do his appearance exactly like the books, but I still see him as a completely different person than this actor. More rugged, I suppose. This actor is just too pretty, he could be an elf in Lord of the Rings or something.

    I haven't seen it yet, but I read the books and everyone's talking about it, so I'll post anyway.

    I'm really surprised they didn't save this for the finale. How are they going to top that? Unless
    Spoiler:
    they do Joffrey's wedding, but I feel like that's later in the book and will be next season... unless I'm remembering it wrong.

    Brutal. Incoherent rage, especially at those Frey cowards that shot the penned dire wolf.

    I'm also surprised they didn't end the season with the Red Wedding being the finale. I thought that would have been a great finale. I guess they probably thought it would be too much of a downer. That's why I think you might be right about how you think they are going to end season 3. That being said, I would milk it longer and end season 4 that way.

    I thought the wedding was portrayed as well as you could do it on TV. That chapter in the book is so good because of the way it builds tension and Martin really sets the atmosphere so well with the way the music was being played and the cramped conditions. I really thought they did a nice job of portraying how fast things turned. Really heart-breaking chapter and an equally heart-breaking episode.

    Spoiler:
    I'm glad they showed Grey Wind, but I wish they didn't make him go down like that. He should have been showed taking out a bunch of guards.

    I thought it was well done. Would have liked for Grey Wind to go out fighting too! Also thought there should have been massive tent fires outside and more mayhem

    Hey, in the books Bolton says "Jaime Lannister sends his regards" instead of "The Lannisters send their regards" ... does this deviate anything?

    Also, minor complaint but it would have been cool to see The Hound riding up on Arya like in the book, not knowing if he's going to ride her down or save her before he finally does the latter.
    What did you expect?
