Selmy didn't reveal himself like that right away in the book, which is going to change the Mereen storyline. Also not having Belwas is going to change a ****load too.


I'm really trying to like this but I feel like there's so much less detail. They left out Davos's entire backstory apparently. I feel like there's no possible way people are getting the full experience out of this show.

well the **** with Selmy was changed but it was a good change IMO. I believe Belwas is in this season but he is being made a more minor character.



i just liked the unsullied scene.


oh the **** with davos' story pissed me off.
Spoiler: (Highlight this box to see the hidden message.)
did they ever mention his finger bones around his neck last season? i believe they said he got the tips cut off but never the neck bag. like, why skip that? it takes 2 seconds to explain



if you are a super purist you will probably get pissed with how they made the lightning lord look (i believe the brotherhood appears next episode). there are pics all over the web...he looks too lively

Yeah with Selmy they couldn't exactly make it a surprise because you can see him instead of just reading a description. They didn't mention Davos finger bag, and they never even mentioned any Onion Knight stuff. I told my buddy that the Onion Knight has one of the best stories and he had no idea who I was talking about. OH, and Tyrions nose? That's what they did, gave him a little cut? He's supposed to be a disfigured monster now

tyrion's nose thing pissed me off but they did not make him even remotely close to as disfigured as he should be to begin with so i am OK with it. i could have sworn they mentioned his smuggling during the siege storm's end but in no detail.

I do hope they change the story a bit so Bron stays a big character, i miss him in the books



TALKING IN SPOILERS IS FUN ESPECIALLY WHEN 90% OF THE PEOPLE THAT DONT WANT **** SPOILED ARE GOING TO HIGH LIGHT AND READ THIS ANYWAY!!!

Bad choice to start the season on April first I guess.

Yeah, we're supposed to break the record low tonight. Last Easter I was running around with the kids in shorts and a t-shirt. Thanks Al Gore!

yes.

The show is amazing, but the books have a more in-depth storyline.

This is still one of my favorite shows...but it's not even close to representing the book. Dany gets less than like...2 hours a season of face time and is unarguably the most important character in the series.

Not saying it's a bad show..but it's honestly like cliff noting the books.

Brotherhood without Banners. Hound doesn't have the best reputation in the realm. Beric is a servant of R'hllor.

in season 1/book 1 Ned Stark sent out Beric Dondarion to bring in the Mountain for his crimes in the Riverlands (if you remember he and his men were putting towns to the sword and spreading fish everywhere to frame the tully's).

basically, there were skirmishes between him and the mountain and after Ned was killed they still vowed to bring in the mountain. over time more people joined his cause from all sides and now they serve as a band of fighters that do not fight for any particular side. basically if there is someone doing wrong they try to stop them.


the Hound happened upon them by chance. they found him drunk and they knew of his past viciousness but they did not have any crimes against him that were relevant. they charge him with trial by combat because IF he is innocent r'hllor will deem it so and he will win the fight.



there is a lot of stuff i left out due to spoilers but you will probably get clued into them next week. also, they combined the character of Thoros of myr with Lem and the bard dude (cannot remember his name to save my life) which sort of confuses things (imo). they also seemed to have cut out all the gossip and talk about the brotherhood devastating lannister troops across the countryside. in the books you hear about them in passing all the damn time before arya meets up with them.

Yeah I was actually disappointed with the Gendry changes.

And did I miss it or did they completely take out Reek? The torture scene was good, but the whole thing with Reek makes it so much more significant.
