Damn TMG not sure I'm diggin' the circles you're hanging with ;) but seriously man on man rape is something I wish for plenty of scumbags. Like for example whoever is responsible for yesterday's bombing in Boston....and Joffrey

Wise have you ever seen that youtube video where they loop Tyrion slapping Joffrey for something like 13 minutes.  Sometimes I could watch that all day.

Wiseguy 4/16/2013 7:15:42 AM

Ha! goldeneyes just looked it up. I like the one that's set to music and shows all 3 slaps.

Watching that reminded me how much of a little bitch Joffrey is after the way he whimpered following the 1st slap. Damn this kid needs to get his comeuppance

I never liked Theon from the first time he appeared in the books at the beheading of the Nightswatch deserter and he kicked the guys head.  MrEt, I've read all the books and I kind of think the miller's boys would disagree that he has suffered enough. 

 

As for how big Dany's dragons can eventually get, if you remember back in season one they showed Arya in the tunnels/basement under the Red Keep and she came across the skulls of dragons.  Some of the teeth were bigger than Arya was.  The adults were big enough to ride according to the stories they've told already of the past.   I've also read theory's of show only peeps all over the net of what is going to happen with Dany, and some pretty much have it correct, but some don't.  I don't recall exactly why Dany chose to take Missandei though I have an idea, but maybe she is tired of being around dudes all the time.   But since that actress playing Missandei is pretty hot, I look at it as a plus.

 

I for one don't like how they made Stannis out to be a horn-dog.  I think it was out of his character, he was just as straight an narrow as Ned in some respects. 

 

I also think they made things look like the Wildlings were just going south out of some bloodlust and desire to kill "Crows".   I always thought for the most part in the books that it was shown they mainly wanted to escape the Others and put the Wall between them and the Others.

 

I figured Jaime getting his sword hand cut off was going to take a lot of people back.  Remember that sucker did attempt to kill Bran.  His reasoning was probably that it was Bran's life or his, Cercei's and his incest children's.  He is an example of characters not being totally good or evil but like most fitting in the middle somewhere.

So far, I'm always happy with an episode of GoT. Whether its fast or slow I feel its another building block in the puzzle of the whole epic. I also agree with Jarrett. It's a show I never want to end and the next episode can't come soon enough. And I've used the medievel Sopranos example to explain the show to people many times, even though I've never really watched that show.

Jamie's horrible chop was very, shocking and horrifying to me. I know he's the Kingslayer, and shoved the kid out of the window, and crippled Ned Stark. But for the past two seasons he has mostly been powerless and portrayed as the stylish rogue, almost an Errol Flynn character. Seeing him maimed hurt me like they did it to Robin Hood. And it was a Robin Hoodish act he did to spare Brienne a horrible fate.

 This show is precious but the pacing is maddening.  I wish they paid less attention to some of the characters and subplots and concentrated more on others.  I often find myself really getting into something and then bam, the six minutes are up and it's time to take us somewhere else. I've read criticism of Peter Jackson for taking 3 movies (somewhere between 6 and 9 hours) to tell the story of "The Hobbit,"  but HBO's GoT can't seem to present one entire book in the "Song of Ice and Fire" series in 10 hours. 

Scenes like the  uncomfortably funny moment at the funeral,  the positioning of the chairs in the council chamber, and Tyrion and Bronn trying to discover why the whores gave back the gold, are the kind of stuff that makes this show stand head and shoulders above other sword and sorcery (dungeon and dragon) fantasies that have preceded it (including the Lord of the Rings).

@TheStormrider - We had thought the same exact thing about what Daenerys was going to do with the soldiers. And we have sat through every conversation wondering who amongst her group can understand what he's saying and is ready to pounce. But my instincts now tell me that her reasoning for getting Missandei in the trade may be to get as much intel as possible about who he is since she is now bound to her bidding. And that little smile she gave after  Daenerys's "we aren't men" comment tells me she'll be more than willing to divulge such information. But the smart thing to do would be to turn the soldiers loose on him, then take what's left. Also the reason she wanted the soldiers in training. So there aren't any loose ends, and to up the numbers since there will surely be casualties.

It seems im not the only one with the same thoughts about what's to happen with Daenery and her dragon. No way, her dragon is gonna listen to that douche bag, or sit idle while she sails away. 

The whole Jaime thing really was shocking. I thought he was gonna somehow snatch a sword and start kicking everyone's asses. I also thought he'd easily be able to defeat the giant chick in their sword fight last week, but nope. He's turning out quite disappointing to me. All talk and no bark. I do feel bad tho they cut off his jerking-off hand. That is just wrong.....

 In the case of this show, I'm glad I didn't read the books.  As a result, I'm not constantly comparing the series to the books.  I never know what's going to happen next , so consequently I'm often surprised (shocked) by things (like the amputation of Jaime Lannister's hand).

The scene where the ruffians (as Jarrett Kruse calls them) capture and attempt to sodomize Theon is disturbing, even though it's no more horrible than the torture Theon endured in the last episode .  Perhaps because it's something you almost never see on television.  I don't see this as a homoerotic act but rather an act of violence, domination, degradation and humiliation...the thugs zeal for it (without watching their backs)...ends up costing them their lives.  

In the past episode I had a problem with GRRM's take on homosexuality. (How can I say this delicately) I can only speak for myself...but, as a heterosexual male, just because I enjoy a particular sex act with a woman, doesn't mean that if I got drunk I'd consider doing that same thing with a man (it's never going to happen, drunk or not).  Likewise I would guess that gay men are turned on by men...not a particular body part that is shared by both sexes. So that whole thing between Joffrey and Margaery about her relationship with her late husband didn't ring true.  However it is George R. R. Martins world...he created it and he can have the beings who populate it, behave any way he pleases.

@acidsquall,

I'm thinking once she has her Unsullied and gave him a dragon she is going to tell that loyal pet/child to incinerate the fellow and his whole facility.

And for those of you who already know what's going to happen: DON'T TELL ME.
