This is probably the best article I have read about the sport from an outside perspective. Thanks for taking the time to write this and give some insight into this awesome culture.

missed opportunitIES. I agree with you Eric. J lannister's return was so weak. If it was gonna be like that they could have postponed him entering the Red Keep and confronting Cersei until S4 and instead used a longer scene of him and QMaester walking through flea bottom in the S3 finale. The "move out of the way 'country boy'" line served well but it wasn't enough. That first moment in KL was a disappointment. People would argue that the following frame with Cersei didn't need any dialogue, just emotion and that it was intentionally vague (what is the status of their relationship now). I think that is BS, and a horrible strategy/idea. The only way to do it justice would be to carry on exactly from that breath of air in next season's opener.
I also like your point about Bran using the secret passage way. How could they not have built a set with the door he passes through??? That gave this part of his journey a mystic feeling to me and/or other types of feelings to different individuals. Visually that should have been something that we would expect from a thrones finale leaving the viewer with anticipation for next season.
I am most pissed about theon greyjoy and ramsay. Too many pointless scenes in my opinion. He was broken mentally the first time Ramsay flayed his finger. I've heard people say that since ramsay and reek werent in season 2 that it would have been too difficult to portray a similar version of events that occurred in the books. They should have had theon woken up inside of a burning winterfell by 'Reek'. Reek is among an armed force but he is not the clear leader. Theon does not know who these men are but joins them because they were sent by his sister to bring him to her at "the northern stronghold she is at" according to a man who theon perceives to be their leader. The next time we see theon they arrive at the dreadfort, unknown to Theon since he has never been there before. As they arrive Reek and Theon are bonding in the back of the pack. Reek reveals that he is a lowborn boy sent away by his father to be fostered here years ago and can relate to theon. Theon meets his sister aka the 'X', is bound, and realizes that he is in serious trouble. That night is when Reek smuggles Theon out of the castle and directs him toward another stronghold where knows ironborn forces are currently mobilized, all because he is sympathetic towards theon and is truly a friend. From there this version merges with the S3 version that appeared on screen. Theon is almost raped then Reek saves him again, showing off his supreme hunting ability because that part was cool and ironically was one of my favorite scenes from the season (probably because ramsay is one of my favorite characters which is clearly indicated by this big ass paragraph). Reek leads theon back, this time under the castle to the room with the X and turns on theon. Reek flays theon's finger (a single torture scene). Balon receives the letter from Ramsay Snow and instead of his dick, the box contains a bag of flayed flesh amounting to more that just one finger signifying that Theon has been significantly tortured.
Ya I know you could pick out flaws in my version but I made it up on the spot. My point is that writers should have spent more time plotting young Theon Greyjoy's part. There was a lack of creativity adapting the book version of events to the show with the exception of the scene where Ramsay looses arrows on his own men. Theon should have gone through a wider variety of experiences instead of being tortured week after week wondering who the fuck this guy who's torturing him is. Atleast give him the false identity of Reek.
Hit me back bro im interested to hear any thoughts you may have.
That's true in the show SBH, but in the book Niall he was considered their Great Great Grandfather, I just pointed that out because I was hoping maybe they would bring in the Dermot character their Great Uncle . :)
Niall-> Fintan- >, John
Hi bbanke, Jason called Niall his grandfather however he's a much older ancestor, Nialls son, John Stackhouse, promised the next fae bearing female Stackhouse to Macklyn Warlow in 1702.
Earl Stackhouse was Jason and Sookies grandfather, as seen in first episode in season 4, Earl was also faerie as he had been sent to Queen Mab to be "harvested".
Enough Bush!! Those sirens certainly had some !! And when they were dismissed, girl, you shake that thang....
I have finally decided to really treat the book/show as two different things. And unfortunately to the point where I don't seem to care about anything! Is it because of last season with "The Authority" Having gone so far off the path of how the books went?
I was talking with someone about the series and they had read that all the fun of the "small town" was gone... and that the only real piece of that left seem to be poor Andy... and even that seems to be gone too... And leave poor Terry to himself and his post traumatic stress disorder!
One interesting thing was that Niall (in the audio book it was pronounced Nigh-all) is Sookie and Jason's GREAT Grandfather. That their grandfather was Fintan who had sex with Gram. But that Fintan had a brother, Dermot who in the books looks EXACTLY like Jason.. this might be interesting if they chose to use that character, only to see Ryan Kwanten play both.
The musical score for this film was written be Eastman School of Music graduate, Steve Bramson.
I think Roxxxy was the best by far. Just take a look at the candy competition. Jinkx is just weird and deff didn't deserve to win. Everything 70's all day! Gosh 👎👎👎👎👎
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
