    It will be interesting how the show changes things up now that many of the big players from the first 3 seasons are 6 feet under.

    I would wager that it's correct. It's pretty much what that's like. It's even worse because we already know where the Stark daughters are, and we know that one of them isn't even in Westeros. (they moved this forward a bit). It works a lot better to have her actually meet Arya, and Arya to refuse (which the show sold me on.)

    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Oh, I wish I had mad vid-edit skills -- I'd recreate the entire ending to "Six Feet Under," just with Arya sailing off into the sunset (in lieu of Claire driving to NYC), interspersed with the various clips of characters dying and their death plates to the tune of Sia's "Breathe Me."

    Two decent interviews, one with Martin and one with Charles Dance.

    “I’m not one of these actors that tries to find the good in a character,” Dance added. “If a character is a sh–, he’s a sh–, and you play him full on as a sh– – don’t try and make him nice, you play him full on.”
    I think that's one thing that made Tywin so good -- he was so unapologetic.

    EDIT: Oh yes, and the power of denial at work:

    We did see a different kind of throne last night. I stole that from the EW article, though.

    Interesting.

    I'm confused about George RR Martin's comment, that Tyrion was at a mental state where he was so hurt by Shae (get it), by Tywin (get it), and by Jamie (don't get it), and that was his mental state when he killed his father.

    Why was he hurt by Jaime? Is this something I'm missing as a show watcher? But was mentioned in the books? What did Jaime do to him?

    Yes, it's because the book gives Tyrion a different reason for killing Tywin and Jaime plays a roll.

    I was complaining about the difference in a spoiler above.
