Most of the concessions they are making are trimming fat or making things more meaningful to a television audience.

*Spoilers from the books, not just this episode. Actually, kind of a really big spoiler that I didn't have to make but felt like it anyway.

Like Robert's new love interest. They probably changed it to give the audience time to see them actually fall for each other rather than just saying, "Rob took the castle, he knocked her up. So, sorry about that whole oath thing...ack,dead." Which is how I felt like it was in the book. More or less.

brans story sucks so whatever


not having the 2 reed kids is pretty freaking huge. not having the bloody mummers is huge, the **** they changed with jon is huge (although it will still end the same...it has to), robb's thing doesn't really matter and that change makes sense for condensing purposes.

they should have kept the rodrick stuff the same too.

Every time I read Bran's name at the top of a page I cringe. I hate his storyline.

they butchered that part bad

also, I totally agree with that one bro, brans story line sucked in the books, so assuming they change it for the show i can only assume it will be better.

I didn't read the books so from what I've seen you guys say its disappointing that they erred so far in the story. But to be honest, without seeing it, the show makes me want to read them.

I don't think, and for the most part it seems nobody else really thinks, the show is doing a bad job despite not sticking with the source material as rigidly as they did last season. The main concern in messing with Arya's storyline is that her story is awesome in the books.

i thought the season sucked outside the last 2 episodes. the production quality and acting just did not seem nearly as good. plus the story is not as interesting.

I think they should have split it up differently. They could have done all of the Renly and Stannis **** in a shorter time frame. I want to see 2 episodes for the "finale", ya'll know what I'm talking about. But sadly I know that they are going to rush it and it will be like a 15 minute scene, when in reality should be like 2 episodes.

they already said they are allotting a ton of time for that, like over an episode. considering the tyrion chapter fro that part was like 5 normal chapters in length and that is not including the other characters. keep in mind they also need to tie up the jon (no clue wtf they are doing with that now), dany and theon **** but it looks like theon's will be done in a week or so

I try to mindfully skim this thread for spoilers. I read Game Of Thrones but thought it was boring and terribly paced. I love the show, so I never even considered reading the second book.

This is a movie and tv section so I would hope people that read the book don't become *******s and spoil everything. Got enough people at working doing that already

Yea, his writing style is pretty ****ty. I still thought the books were mostly good. If he cut out the fluff, they'd be half the length and lose almost nothing though.

everyone dies, story spoiled



i liked the pacing of the books. he is incredibly descriptive, a lot of it does not have much to do with the plot but it helps to visualize everything. its pretty crazy when most every character, setting, meal you pictured in the books looks exactly how they portray it in the books. he is very long winded but not to the point where it is deal breaking (except with bran, god he sucks)



edit:
Spoiler: (Highlight this box to see the hidden message.)
the only thing i can think of with the bull**** dany story is that they are cutting out the house of the undying events and jumping to the end of it. the end result will be the same but the story will be replaced with bull**** thievery.

interesting episode, it feels like each episode just flies by.

Spoiler: (Highlight this box to see the hidden message.)
the House of the Undying assassination of all of the Qarth council was pretty badass, and is it me or is Cersei playing Tyrion and the viewers
