I've read all the books up till Dance of Dragons of course and I can't wait for all the 'I did not see that coming' moments to be shown. I watch it with a friend who hasn't read the books and its so hard keeping your mouth shut especially when

Martin wrote the last episode himself and it was probably the most interesting one of the season so far.

Just a reminder here, folks, that not everyone has read the books.  For the sake of discussion, it would be good if we could refrain from giving away plot lines that haven't happened yet.  Even with Spoiler Tags, people who have seen the episode but not read the book are going to click on it and find information that spoils future storylines.

Thank you :)

Who else is extremely impressed by the way Season 3 is building?  I'm really enjoying the story arcs of the characters.  Danaerys is becoming far far far more interesting than her Season 2 storyline, in fact I can't think of a poor storyline in any of the characters.  Every time I see Dany's story I get goosebumps waiting to see what will happen.  Three more episodes until the season is finished, and already it's feeling far too short.  I'm hoping they'll do the smart thing and make episode 10 a movie-length episode - that would be about all they can do to really do justice to Season 3.

All players are now in place for:

Spoiler

Looking forward to how they approach these events over the next couple of episodes.


Her storyline at the moment is by far my favorite.

Tyrion Lannister is favorite character though, Peter Dinklage is such an impressive actor, his on screen presence is brilliant.

I do feel this season (except from Danaerys and her parts) has been kinda slow. I can't help but feel there is not enough time per episode to cover enough story because of all the factions. Then there only being 10 episodes. Maybe next season they should consider extending the episodes.

I've also taken a liking to Dog since he helped Sansa and the other little bits we have seen of him. I hope tere is a good storyline with him. I couldn't believe it was the guy from the Scott's porage oat advert. LOL Not sure if you get Scott's porage oats over there though?

I agree there doesn't seem to be enough time in the show now.  They jump so fast that you get dizzy and the storylines can't develop.

As the series went on, GRRM introduced more and more storylines to the point where his last book had to be published as two.   I'd stop with the Theon story for now and maybe one other, probably Jon Snows to make room for the more important stories at this point.

FINALLY Sam get his moment.  Well done with
Spoiler

Once again and as usual, Peter Dinklage shows us all what great acting is.  A lot of great cating throughout this show, truly wonderful, but Dinklage is amazing.  Joffrey really is a b******, I am so waiting for...

edit:  Is it just me or does this show seem to be only 20 minutes long?  My Dad was watching for the first time, not a clue what is going on but hooked and said "Is that all?"  I said "Dad, when an hour seems like 20 minutes they are doing it right."
