so you agree that for the people just watching the show the whole harrenhall situation isn't explained clearly? bolton and his men just happen to be in harrenhall, we don't even know why.

didn't realize that petyr baelish aka littlefinger is just going like that to eyrie, uninvited, unanounced and simply to marry the queen of the castle! :lol:
Also it was his idea and not tywin's?? I thought that baelish was kind of holding to the idea of marrying Sansa until tywin told him he would marry lady arryn.. (so many "y"s in all those names gosh) all these stuff aren't really shown in the show.

Even in the book he simply disappears off to marry lysa without any kind of contact. Twas all his own idea.
Harrenahll was as i said. Treachery by the mummers to let Bolton in and take it from Tywins men

Well... it was explained, just might not have seen the relevance of it. We did see Tywin leave and we did see Robb and his men enter a short time later.

If you remember, Robb and company traveled to Harrenhall expecting a fight at the beginning of this season. When they got there they just found it empty with a bunch of Northeners dead (and Maester Qyburn barely alive). Robb then left Bolton in charge and went back to Riverrun. The show never explained the Bloody Mummers and where they came from, they just "appeared" in an episode where they captured Brienne/Jaime and brought them back to Harrenhall.

But as Kizkiz said, in the books it happens differently.

sam that fat bastard idiot. is it me or did he not pick up the magic dagger after stabbing that white walker? and wasn't it the white walker leader?

interesting character that daenerys has encountered. he isn't from braavos rght, it's another of the captains that he killed that was from braavos? also when the lord of yunkai had powerfull allies was he refering to them or to some other kingdoms?

i've heard a friend telling me that he wonders how the hell are they going to make the entire finish of the book 3 in those last 2 episodes, and that basically after 8 episodes we're halfway through the book. The more I think about it, the more I feel like buying the books and start reading them.. If I do should I start back from AGOT, or should I guy directly, the book 4?

This season is only supposed to cover the first half of book 3 (give or take). Also, what kizkiz said.

I read all the 5 books. And Betiko, you have to read them. They are really good.
The 1st one you could skip, it is better you read it, but it is really close to the series and will be rather boring ( was the case for me, I watched seaon 1 and 2 then I bought the books).
But you will still learn some small things if you read book 1 so it is not useless.


I just read the whole topic today. Sorry to get back but I wanna reply you about Daenerys part and the slavers.
The slavers have been selling slaves armies since centuries before Daenerys arrives. They think nobody will ever destroy them because it has always been like that. It is exactly like if you are selling guns, you dont expect the guys you sold the guns to kill you to get the money back ( which is exactly what Daenerys did because she wanted her dragon back ^^ ).
Totally OK to me.

No, it was dumb. It's part of the story in order to advance the plot.

Ep 9 will not be a disappointment for you, then. In my opinion it was the biggest "wow" moment in all five books, just ahead of Ned's death.

Well dont give it away,I have heard that there is a "wow" moment and so far I have not tried to look it up to see what it is,I think Ned's moment occurred in episode 8,that is why I was beginning to wonder with this season.
