    So fuck theon.

    Stannis you magic using motherfucker.

    Although Renly had to die [it was too damn easy for him considering he had the whole south] it really did surprise me.

    It was necessarily that Renly had to die that surprised me, but how he died :ohholyfuck:

    Yeah exactly. Did not see that coming at all. One of the first real big fantasy moments. Other than the dragons of course.

    I wouldn't necessarily consider it a cop out. It creates other possible story lines, and something to add other than more fighting.

    Melisandre's shadow baby scene at Storm's End better be just as explicit next season

    So, yeeeeeeah, can we all agree Tyrion is the best fucking character?

    I hate the Lannisters, but damnit if I didn't find myself cheering for the chain and the wildfire to work.

    Also, hope somehow Davos made it, but I doubt it.

    Yeah, it is interesting how all the magic seems to be picking up now that the dragons are on the scene. Even the pyromancers are getting a taste.

    Really can't wait to see giants from north of the wall.

    Renly had to die. Stannis would have no hope if it weren't for her killing him. Would have been too easy. I like it as an introduction to magic.

    I thought for a second the character Sansa would be useful in the 2nd season of the show but she's way to young to do the nudity scene.

    Halfway thru CoKs and its SO much better than GoT in my opinion. The Hound is really growing on my as a character. I really like anti-heroes, so it makes sense.

    If you think CoK is great, just wait til SoS. I'm about 2/3 through and it's nuts, with, from what I hear, much crazier shit to come.

    just finished as well...took me a while to figure out why stannis' guys thought renly had come back

    is stannis' wife dead as well?

    theon is definitely dead

    kinda pissed they completely gloss over Robb's victories

    tyrion rules

    whole lot of storylines left open with dany coming back, robb out there destroying shit and pissed off thinking his brothers are dead,jon joining the bad guys....and yeah a whole lot of magic starting to appear

    hmmmm I guess I just assumed she would be there somehow...also not sure why they would use magic to kill renly and the storms end guy and not use it at all to attack the main jewel they were after

    Stannis doesn't bring Melisandre because he doesn't want people to think she is the source of his power

    For some reason I think Stannis will still be alive.

    I'm guessing someone dressed up as Renly/they were mistaken that he was leading the charge? Or is he actually he alive? I don't see why you would kill him for him to return in the end.

    And wait are y'all calling Melisandre Stannis' wife?

    the battle of blackwater should take up the entire episode. i really, really really, hope the budget is sufficient enough to show the battle in all of its glory

    The chain, the armies, the huge naval battle, the green fire, etc.

    how will they possibly do it justice?

    the book didn't do it justice either...took me 4 chapters into book 3 before i finally figured out exactly what happened and who is alive and dead

    BTW SoS is amazing so far and only on page 75

    I'm delaying it as long as possible. That way the wait for book 6 won't be as long. [4 years instead of 5]

    Found myself thinking this when reading his POVs. Clearly the most interesting character and the most lovable of the Lannisters

    Anyone know the purpose of Renly eating that peach in front of Stannis? Was he mocking him some how? I could never figure it out.

    he was mocking him, making him think he was pulling a blade is how I read it

    finally finished. the Battle of Blackwater was really confusing to try to keep track of, but I guess that was the point because we were seeing it from Tyrion and Davos' POVs and even they didn't really know what was going on half the time.

    really interested to see where Jon's storyline goes. I'm not sure what to think of Bran. I think I may have set myself up for a letdown in thinking his dreams would turn out to mean more that they actually do, but maybe I'm wrong.

    also, like others have said, I really didn't understand the whole thing about Renly's ghost. I guess considering the way he was killed anything is possible.

    can't wait to start ASOS tomorrow.

    I want him to regain the use of his legs, whether it be as a wolf or whatever, but in real life not just the dreams.

    I don't know why, but that's the direction I thought it was going.
