You're absolutely correct, Stratford Fan. We've corrected the article. Thanks.
You should know that Tom Rooney, not Brian Bedford, plays the role of Angelo in Measure for Measure.
Stopruining: I haven't given away ANYTHING in this blog. Absolutely nothing above reveals any details of upcoming plots, or intimates anything that a reasonable savvy viewer couldn't figure out on his/her own (like Arya and the importance of the coin, or that the Joffrey/Margaery wedding is in the offing, or that more pain and misery is coming for EVERYONE). I've hinted at important events to come, but have not given details about any of it. The fact that the Red Wedding was such a surprise to the vast majority of show viewers -- despite the fact that those scenes have been around in book form for nearly 15 years -- should be proof enough that bloggers aren't interested in spoiling this story. I consider myself one of them.
And seriously, if you don't like my approach, feel free to read any of the other "Game of Thrones" blogs out there. I'm not going to do a scene-by-scene recap. That's boring. My approach is to look at the show from the perspective of someone who has read the books, and offer insight for show-only viewers who may be missing some of the details/color that you only get in the books.
Don't forget the youngest Stark boy is still alive, adding to the potential heirs to Winterfell.
Can you not fucking hint at every plot twist to come, please!?
It was a thud of a season ending. Probably more so for the folks that haven't read the book since it was short of all the action that the preceding episode provided. I am eagerly anticipating the next season and the presentation of the rest of Book 3!
Cathy: He said that to underline the fact that he had officially switched sides in the war. Bolton was initially one of Robb's bannermen -- Robb left him in control of Harrenhal. But Bolton is an extremely shrewd man -- and has no ethics to speak of -- and thus he saw that Robb could not hope to win, and by offing him, secured a very nice place in the Lannister regime. The Boltons are not stupid. Just evil.
I've not read past the first book so am happy enough with plot lines, characters etc. I like your blog because I am generally at a bit of a loss.(see first common to explain why) *****pls explain why Bolton said to Robb(during the ultimate cut) 'this is from the Lannisters'
Try to get your tickets in advance - this tour can sell out, and tickets the days of the tour are a bit more expensive ($25). It's a don't miss this year!
Great blog! Thanks to Bernie for pointing me to it.
Having read book three I knew that Robb's wife was not at that wedding and that she is alive in book 4 (I haven't read 5 yet), so I was shocked by her death and actually yelled, "What the fuck!" at that moment. My guess is that they just wanted to get rid of his wife's storyline and in turn, get rid of several characters for the next seasons.
Anyway, nice recap. I look forward to reading more.
At this point, people need to realize that if you want to read a blog about a show your interested in, maybe wait until you have seen the episode before you read it. It's common sense. I enjoy the author's postings very much, but do wait until I've seen the episode to then get his thoughts.
I can't believe what has just happened. Pretty horrific to watch that last scene. I thought chopping off Ned Starks head was bad. I really liked Rob Stark but have been watching him this season with an impending sense of doom! I need to start reading the books. I agree that it feels like things are taking a while to happen in this season, they are in danger of alienating some people by not advancing some character plot lines far enough whilst taking away some well loved characters
I hate the ending of the episode. I do not want to see the show ever again. The producers killed the series. The Starks family wasn't supposed to die. I wanted them to live. I wish the father of the Starks family hadn't been executed in season 1 episode 9. I wanted a good ending. I am so disappointed.
I loved this serie. But this turn on killing whole Stark's family disappòinted me completely. What a bullshit and that's the end for me of the serie. Pathetic. Without sense.
And I do think the next big wedding will be pushed to S4
One of the three names was an Iron Born: Lord Greyjoy.
Ken: Yeah, I'm fairly certain the other wedding will be Season 4. They're splitting Book 3 over two seasons -- that has always been the plan. I cannot imagine the show getting to those plot points any earlier than the second half of S4, probably around the same point they did the Red Wedding this time. My current guess on cliffhanger for the finale involves a big advancement in the Bran plot, and the Red Priestess getting tipped off to goings-on somewhere very different.
Regarding the Iron Islands, I expect that stuff to get lumped into Season 4. We saw Yara/Asha in the preview for next episode. I know that people are cool toward the Ironborn stuff now, but her POV chapters in the books and the fascinating politics involving her uncles made me much more interested in that area of Westeros. So I expect that to be a focus of the next season. My question is, will the show even bother getting into Dorne at this point? Or are they just going to let that stay off to the side until those subplots become more relevant to the main story arcs? (Book readers are still waiting for that, with the exception of the Myrcella and Oberyn stuff.)
The author used the word "Spoilers" in the 3rd paragraph before he got into the recap. I think people were sufficiently warned.
Next time say that you're WRITING SPOILERS. The way you wrote that you're going to say what was in the books that wasn't in this episode seemed like you were saying things that could not possibly be mentioned in the next episode. Such as scenes. But you completely went out and spoke about what will happen in the next episode!! THANK YOU.
There is one more death as portended by the Red Witch in the previous episode (Well, two really, but the Iron born are irrelevant to the TV show apparently). I had assumed that the Red Wedding would be the cliff hanger for this season but I guess they are going with the other wedding instead. Do you really think they will push it until Season 4?
