I was kinda surprised with the whole Barristan reveal.

They are probably dropping that whole sub plot with Jorah getting cast out because that would have happened as soon as Selmy got revealed. And in the books Jorah was vaguely familiar with Barristsn as Arstan but in the show he knew who he was right away.
Oberyn is 100% NOT in this season, you are correct.
(thus the hope that James Purefoy is cast as the Red Viper still lives!)

I don't see an issue with the Selmy reveal, they'll probably have Dany find out about Jorah some other way and problem solved.

I usually poke my nose in here to try and get my confusion all sorted out in regards to the book vs tv changes, but seems like several of you are in the same boat as me, but are posting

Oberyn reference in 1st episode of season 3? Yeah, no. What?

Might be best to just re read I guess.

He was mentioned? I know they mentioned Dorne a few times but I didn't hear Oberyn's name at all.

He wasn't. Someone earlier in the thread suggested the assassination attempt on Dany was done by Dorne/ Oberyn (what? have you read the books?), despite Dany saying immediately "the warlocks!" or something like that. I was just mentioning how I get confused due to not having read them in so long, and usually come in here to try to straighten out what is faithful to the book and what was altered, but end up worse than when I started because people are posting in here despite being just as, if not more so, confused than I am.

So true, I was totally confused, haven't read books in awhile, know show has been making changes vs books so I was trying to figure out who that little girl was.

Sorry guys.

That site is the best. It was down for a little bit on Monday due to server overload and I was dying at work, trying to remember how long Barristan had been in Dany's service as Arstan before revealing himself (and Jorah).

It's back up now, thankfully

The forum for westeros.org is great as well. There is a thread called something like "Theories you 100% believe", which is amazing. Has all the best theories, everyone explaining them and a if you don't get it, you can just go to that link above and search it in there.

I liked Purefoy in Resident Evil and Rome, but when I think of Oberyn Martell and Dorne in general, I think of arabic kind of look and I always picture Oded Fehr as Oberyn.He was great in the Mummy movies and he was amazing in Sleeper Cell.One of my favorite "character" actors.

I'll also give a plug for: Tower of the Hand

So, in the last Theon scene, the guy claiming to be sent by Yara was Ramsay Snow, right?

I didnt think an episode could get any slower than the first but they managed!

I was expecting Dany to go ******* but it seems as E3 will be the first real action of the season. Cannot wait!

The Cat/Talisa and Tyrion/Shae scenes were awful imo, I thought The Queen of Thorns, The Reeds, and Thoros of Myr were all great in their debuts.

I loved the Cat and Talisa scene. Also think they're doing Bran's story very well.

Didn't like the Catelyn scene. Otherwise thought it was an awesome episode. Lots of good plot movement. Really enjoy the Arya actress.

Gawd, I hate Jeyne Westerling/ talia so much. It just saddens me to watch this whole thing build up.

Bumping this back to page 1 so people don't post spoilers to the other No Spoilers TV thread.

^Some people seem to have a lot of trouble with that for some reason

Also, found this video that I hadn't seen before:

Well In the books when Ned gives Beric the task of hunting down the Mountain he you're told he included some of his own guard in the 100 men. Then in the books you're in Arya's head and whe she sees him she instantly recognizes him as the stable master's son or whatever it was and starts talking to him with a degree of familiarity. Try putting that on the HBO show and the unwashed masses will be saying 'who the **** is this guy?'

I loved the scene in the books as well but it just wasn't going to work here. The bigger change however is having Arya+Brotherhood+Hound together right from the start... I forget exactly how it all went down but I'm pretty sure in the books she traveled around with the brotherhood for a while then when the Hound came in is when she took her leave from them. If we go straight to the duel then what else is Arya going to do all season?
