    @Jennifer, I'm impressed that you put that together as a pure show-watcher. I don't even remember LS being discussed in the show. And yeah, there is an ongoing heated debate on the topic but that seems to be the most popular theory.

    I'm kinda cranky about the overt Sam-Gilly romance stuff. I kinda preferred how they did it in the book. I'm probably just blindly reacting to change, though.

    When Ned took Robert down to the crypt, to look forlornly at her statue. They had a pretty good convo about her.

    My case was pretty much all intuitive/inductive at first, based on tone and feel of the conversations and the situation surrounding Jon, Ned's character, the fact the boy is still genetically a Stark, why Jon's life might have been in danger and such a ruse might have been necessary, etc. it was the puzzle arrangement that makes the most sense to me, and then I filled in the gaps after once I learned more detail.

    GRRM is still prone to flipping things around, but he definitely set it up to be a good possibility.

    @Jennifer:

    Lena Headey has really grown on me as Cersei. I hated her during the first season, as she lacked book Cersei's fire and only had a single facial expression that involved arching her eyebrows. She's really come into the role, though. Even though she's still understated in comparison to the books, she does a great job with playing Cersei's underlying emotional motivations.

    On Jon's Mother:



    PS: I did some exploration of my own, and now believe I know how the season will end. And if I'm right, it's going to be AMAZING.

    Udog, yes, I've been told Martin has told characters private info that their characters would know, to help them play those kinds of scenes. He doesn't tell them stuff that their characters wouldn't know, but yes... that would make sense. and I watched some scenes the second time after thinking about things, and I find them really interesting.



    I agree that Lena is good in the role (although I don't know the books). I don't like Cersei at all, but Lena has improved at it.

    It seems a basic theme of the first season that every time someone makes a reference to speaking with Jon about something one day....

    I agree that Lena is good in the role (although I don't know the books). I don't like Cersei at all, but Lena has improved at it.
    The scene where Robert and Ned eat lunch and discuss Danerys (the first time...not the Council meeting) and the subject of Jon's mother comes up is also played in a very interesting fashion. He doesn't really indicate any agreement with Robert's account of what happened. It almost looks like he's trying to avoid saying something...

    Exactly. I think I talked about that a few days back in my first spoilers on this. It's really interesting to watch with this topic in mind.

    Should that have been spoiler space? There is no confirmation of it in the books.

    I thought the last episode worked better than Blackwater. Blackwater didn't feel as epic to me as it should have.. to the point where I was worried they were going to cut all that cool stuff atop the wall. This episode, though, delivered, and surpassed my expectations. I tend to feel like this show works best when it takes the time to focus more on one location, rather than moving things along slowly episode by episode. Not saying that I'd like all episodes to be one location only next season (that won't happen), but I'd like more longer scenes like the one with Arya and the Hound that closed the premiere.

    We're seeing problems with Good people who are noble but not cunning, and we're seeing problems with Good people who are passionate but too headstrong. Good won't triumph just because it's good, it'll be because it manages to be as wise as a serpent, as peaceful as a dove, as resilient as steel, as flexible as the wind.
    Oh, and I really liked this sentence, by the way. It's awesome.
