    The Purple wedding was written by GRRM , most episodes are by D and D .

    Les be honest , you can't expect every episode to be as great as that because otherwise the show would be over in 3 episodes .

    I thought the episode was awesome , Dany's part was probably my favourite.

    Is it just me or is Dany a little bit too great white hope-y

    Don't get me wrong, I love her character and the message she brings but it is kind off that everything seems to go her way and isn't in keeping with the rest of the show

    Like she walks into a city and frees all these slaves all like cos I have dragons *yawn*

    I agree. I find her and Brans scenes pretty boring.. i think that unlike the other characters Dany isn't really progressing much, she so far away from the rest of the action and its getting a bit repetitive.. especially her need to do an annoying speech every episode

    Even in the books I found that the chapters from her perspective began to become a bit tiresome

    Just watched this week's ep. Another strong one I thought! In fact I think it's my favourite of this series so far.

    All episodes even if there are no MAJOR things happening are so perfect. Props to HBO and the GoT team.

    I was quite shocked when an evil-reborn Khal Drogo came out the Red priestesses lower region as a result of stannis going at her again on the desk, and the moment he got out there I was shocked he could find daenerys and kill her

    This is pretty brilliant, thought I would share. It's not new but still as funny as it was when first seen.

    IMO Jorah Mormont doesn't seem the kind of guy that would get friendzoned really.

    The friendzone types on GOT are Sam (who would just get friendzoned and accept it and then hang round the girl anyway), Littlefinger (who would be the type that went in to friendzone rage and got bitter and vindictive towards the girl) or Theon (who would get rejected then come on TSR and make 40 threads complaining about friendzone and feminism and why women don't know what they want).

    Jorah Mormont is a rugged knight, bit of a bad boy history, good in a fight, got that older male thing going on. As if he would be friendzoned, all the women would be like OMG YES.

    He should try that chat up line from Dragonborn on here

    No storm is forecast Khaleesi, but you may be getting wet tonight :sexface:

    I thought so too, it had great dialogue and intrigue, which is why I was first drawn into the show. I think the scene where Tyrion starts to unravel what might have happened with Pod was my favourite, with Tywin teaching Tommen a close second. I loved how Tywin opened up to Tommen about his thoughts on Joffrey in front of Cersei.

    I've gone right off Dany tbh, her biblical speeches are starting to grate on me. I think it provides a bit of balance as far as the show goes in terms of her having things go her own way for a while. Whilst to counter that, you have Theon where nothing is going right for him.

    Dany's is very much the long journey story though I'd say. When it comes to the series there needs to be stories where the viewer can relax a little from the tension and everything else. At the moment, Dany provides that. Bran on the other hand has had one of the most intriguing scenes this year for me with the vision from the tree

    i agree i think it has spoiled the dynamic between them.

    The book dynamic was basically that once he had come back things weren't the same and there is that kind of tension between them, but that's not the same as being raped, that is going to make a mortal enemy out of the rapist.

    Cersei is a vengeful and powerful woman and the logical conclusion of this twist to the storyline is that jaime will suffer some kind of violent comeuppance at the hands of cersei, because realistically is cersei the type to take that without vengeance?

    Violent aggressive sex whilst there was clear tension in the air between them would have worked, with them ****ing each others brains out in anger but not a situation which is all about his power over her, it just changes it too much.

    I get irritated by deviations from the book plot but can handle ones that bring a new and interesting plotline like arya being tywin's cup bearer and so on but jaime raping cersei....gtfo.

    I wonder whether this was done just to try and create controversy to boost the ratings, in which case i think its a bit sick tbh. At the end of the day game of thrones is an entertainment show. I know its a fictional story and there are murders and all sorts of crimes in it but there's an element of suspending belief when it comes to seeing people in a fantasy land with dragons in getting murdered in gory ways....but showing a realistic scene of a man forcing himself on a woman is a bit close to home and disturbing for people that watch it that may have been victims of sexual violence. Yes there are rapes in the books but you can easily suggest to viewers that rape has happened without actually showing the scene. To put a full rape scene in that isn't in the book into an entertainment show is basically violent porn.
