Wait, what was that girl at the end? I've never read the books so I'm confused.

Daenerys was an annoying character with an annoying storyline last season for me but I think that will change this season based upon what I've read and heard of her storyline going forward. I actually didn't mind her in this episode and as has been mentioned, the CGI on her dragons was incredible.

Solid episode. Especially Dinklage's scenes. GoT is so cinematically beautiful too, it always surprises me so I feel the incessant need to say it over and over again.

I believe at the end Belmy or Jorah said she was from the warlocks or something ie from qarth

Thanks much appreciated.

I ended up looking it up myself I just didn't at first due to.....laziness I suppose.

I hope she's as awesome as she reads. Well, for at least the one chapter I've read.

An agent/assassin that was affiliated with the warlocks of Qarth. They are not a fan of Daenerys after her dragon burned Pyat Pree (the blue-lipped warlock) alive in the House of Undying.

I thought he was great in season 1, but in season 2 he was speaking with a noticeable raspiness that I didn't really like.

I feel like he was way better suited to the role of Carcetti compared to Littlefinger. He OWNED that role so hard. I still like him as Littlefinger. But the guy just looks like he should be talking with a Baltimore accent instead of a British one.

Aiden Gillen is awful in this show. It is concerning how bad he is in this when comparing his work in the The Wire. Crazy.

Agree, I actually thought he was off to a good start in the first season but all down hill from there. I remember how happy i was when he was cast as Littlefinger but he has been a huge disappointment.

Conleth Hill has been amazing as Varys though.

Hes gone down hill each season. And seriously, why the **** did he change the voice? That's my biggest problem.

Are you guys complaining about the writing for his character or his acting specifically? He had a 15 second scene, hard to judge there.

I think just that one scene (power is power) really screwed up his character

Personally.. I didn't mind the Littlefinger be trolling

I don't care for a lot of the writing on this show, but most actors seem to make it watchable. I have never found Littlefinger convincing.

I can't take him seriously with that accent. It sounds very forced to me.

Doesn't help when you kill off the main character to show that "women are weak and shouldn't be listened to", and start a war because of your own arrogance.

There is, admittedly, some bad acting in the show (I think, at least, as it is subjective). Littlefinger, Sam, Theon, Ros,, Loras. I don't have any problem with the way the characters are written (I'm not one to give a **** about differing from the books), just the actors themselves are a minor stumbling block to fluidity.

Not that it even comes CLOSE to ruining the show. The great performances far outweigh the bad and a few subpar portrayals can be expected with such a large cast.

I think it has more to do with Carcetti than Aidan Gillen.

His Carcetti was perfect and seemed natural.
So much so that his Littlefinger seems "perfectly fine" to all my buddies who never saw The Wire, and to me, knowing him as Carcetti, he seems really bad - or at least his speech and acting looks forced after seeing The Wire three times over.

To be honest, the source writing is nothing spectacular.

One of the best actors on the show. He really makes you despise him like no other.

You're not alone.

I like the character.

I haven't seen the actor in anything else (that I'm aware of). I think he's doing fine.

Never saw The Wire and I think Littlefinger is acted perfectly from what I expected him to be in the books.
