I haven't read the books but i'm not sure how anyone is going to stop Daenerys if she get those 8000 badass dudes

- Dragons
- Possibly 8000 mercenary psychos who don't seem to feel pain and are 100 % loyal
- One of the GOAT warrior now on her side in Barristan Selmy

Granted a 8000 man army may not seem that impressive in numbers but those dudes don't look like ordinary soldiers and combine that with dragons decimating enemy ranks and greatly reducing their numbers and i'm not so sure anyone can stand against that.

Kings Landing has walls. Also the dragons haven't matured and are a long way away from that, which is bad when you have an army which is going to get older and over time be less effective.

No cavalry or seige weapons. They are all infantry. That's limiting factor right there. Remember too that Robb had 20000 men going into the war.

Even the bit with Robb putting his mother in a cell was about the necessity of his service being more important than personal ties. Margaery's scenes were really the only ones that stood out as not being directly related to that theme, but even then, it made the contrast of Joffrey's lack of service to the realm more apparent.

I'm not a book reader but it seems like it would have been difficult to have Jaime/Brienne and Arya/Gendry/etc. in the episode and tie it in to that theme. Jaime/Brienne seems more like it will be a personal rivalry, since they've already hammered home the point that Brienne doesn't serve the Starks, she serves Lady Catelyn and there wouldn't be much point repeating that just for the sake of having them in the first episode. Arya/Gendry aren't really in service of anyone.
Wow, very nice analysis. I never thought of that (usually don't pay attention to names of episodes), but that is very true.

EXCLUSIVE: Peter Dinklage Replaced for Game of Thrones Season 4
By Jacob Klein | HBO Series: Game of Thrones | Apr 1, 2013

EXCLUSIVE: Leading Game of Thrones actor and Emmy winner Peter Dinklage will not return to HBO’s flagship program for a fourth season in 2014. In a press conference the morning of April 1st, 2013 show creators David Benioff, Dan Weiss alongside George R.R. Martin made the announcement to stunned members of the media.

“Today is both a sad day and an exciting one for HBO’s Game of Thrones,” Benioff began. “Sad because we’ve all gotten to know Peter on set and love him dearly as a friend. We’ll miss him sorely. Exciting because we’re heading in an entirely new direction with the character of Tyrion Lannister for season 4.”
Look at the date folks ...

Haha, as soon as I saw who was "replacing" him I laughed.

Quote:
Warwick has reportedly asked for 1 million dollars per episode, amounting to nearly 20 percent of the show’s 50 million dollar per season budget. “We felt that Warwick’s experience and star power was well worth the investment,” Weiss said. “We’ll be seeing a lot less of the dragons and direwovlves due to the new budgeting that will have to be done to compensate. But in the end it’s a small price to pay for this kind of acting gravitas.”

The producers also noted that, in an effort to maintain continuity, Warwick Davis’ face will be digitally transposed over Mr. Dinklage’s in all future releases of Game of Thrones on DVD and Blu-Ray.

They should've used Danny DeVito as a joke replacement. He is pretty much a little person from a legal standpoint.

Absolutely no way that Ygritte is ahead of Margeary and whatever they named Robb's wife.

Agreed. I still think Dany is really good looking, but it's weird because Emilia Clarke looks way better in the show than she does outside of the show (as a brunette and such).

Sansa is pretty, but she won't be legal til season 5 (she turns 18 next February, but when season 4 will be filmed, she'll be 17 still), so she's out of the conversation.

They're all pretty great, Dany, Ygritte, Margeary, Cersei, etc.

I like Ygritte the most probably because of her character. Margeary a very close second.



For the show, I'm most interested in the North of the Wall stuff. Rayder/Snow story line.

Babe thread?

1. Ygritte
2. Dany
3. Margarey
4. Shae

I have a thing for those kissed by fire though.

Also, there are some book readers around here not being too friendly. If I didn't read the books I'd never come into this thread. Just as I don't go into TWD thread having not read the comics. Too many posters "predicting" storylines and are "geniuses" when those crazy predictions happen.

Use the book thread if you're going to talk about **** like that. It's not majorly obvious, but it's apparent.

Sophie Turner's growing at quite the rate. Or Aidan Gillen's really short.

i heard that he just wanted more money since he's become pretty much the only "star" actor on the show.

This isn;t a spoiler, but Ygritte is actually kind of ugly. She's got a pug nose, gaped teeth, and is a big ****, basically.

And the overuse of "You know nothing, Jon Snow," made her really annoying for me.

Actress is hot though.

Which explains her acting chops. She's the only one on the show who I think is a bad actor. She actually killed what could have been a great scene in Tyrion's room after Blackwater. Dinklage wasn't good in that scene either but I suppose it would be hard to be great opposite her.

Dinklage is pretty much the star of the show.

Off the top of my head, my favourite casting choices in no particular order:

Joffrey
Tyrion
Arya
Robb
Jaime
Littlefinger
Varys
Tywin
Cersei
Sansa
Davos


and every major character that died in the first season (Viserys, Drogo, etc)... they were all fantastic T_T
