Thanks for the clarifying the Theon story Swiss. I started book 5 today and been reading/listening to them in order so they all blend together. It can be hard to remember all the details.

I'm glad this site generally liked it; seems to be mostly disappointment everywhere else.  I thought it rocked as usual.  I loved the White Walker at the end, the Wight's/Zombies are whatever though lol.

 

I also feel that Dany should've given her traitorous handmaiden a quicker/clean death; but as we know that isn't her style.  Just makes her look a bit too much like Ramsay as a result though, especially since this about Doreah/the handmaiden was only in the show.

 

Minor complaint though.  I'm going to re-read book 3 and selected chapters of books 4, and 5 to help ease the wait.

Hope to see more of Jaqen myself, he is freaking awesome and the actor that plays him does an excellent job. Love the way he speaks. I want to talk like that for now on. Just start every sentence with "A man."

@violator-He is basically a master assassin with the ability to shapeshift into anyone. He assumes a new identity every so often. He is a member of the a guild of assassins called the Faceless Men. They are reportedly a guild of assassins who command extortionate fees, but have a reputation for competence that is unmatched by any comparable organisation.

The Faceless Men possess the ability to physically change their faces, shapeshifting so that they appear as an entirely new person.

death4sale-thx for the info. man. Btw that also explains to me why he was so damn intent on keeping his word and code and stuff toward Arya. I really didnt know this series had so much supernatural aspects. I thought it was all reality based stories, until I found out there be dragon eggs. So ya, alot of this stuff surprises me sometimes. Not that im complaining or anything tho. Who doesnt wanna see dragons battling zombies yo!!

Violator - without spoiling any season 3 fun...HUMAN zombies aren't the only undead things in that army! ;)

 I didnt read the books either, but I could tell that from the undead horse. But I never thought of OTHER creatures in that army..... Undead Dragons maybe?????? That would be awesome.

 

Just got into this series this season and love it! Cant believe it doesnt get millions more watching it.

I'll let ya down early, calhob, no undead dragons, but the descriptions of some of the undead creatures in the book gave me shivers.  April can't come soon enough...

...by the way..."WINTER IS COMING"...why does the show premiere in April?

lol d4sale, I was thinking the same thing how much I like how he talks Sort of like in the 3ed person but not really. I guess since he can become a different man he says "a man" as opposed to his name.

A wise one says he loves this show.

I felt a little let down by the finale.   I think my biggest issue with the series versus the books, is how little attention the series pays to foreshadowing.  There is a lot of forshadowing in the novels, and it generates many crazy theories which is a lot of the fun. 

Khaleesi is a title not a name.  Looks a little wierd in the review refering to Dany (Danearys) in that form.  I felt they could have chosen Dany's "visions" better.  Her seeing Drogo was cool, but they cut other stuff that would have been cooler to see, if somewhat confusing to a viewer without narration.    

Still no Ghost with Jon was a bummer.  The whole way they got Jon to the Wildlings was a dissatisfying to an extent.

I forget if it's next season or later, but you find out (well, George R.R. Martin leaves it to the readers to make the connection) why A Man would talk as such.
