    Not going to lie, when I hear a lisp I have to think of the Igors in the Discworld novels.

    But yeah, it's probably to avoid people taking the piss out of Vargo's... impediment a little too much. I hope they keep it in though.

    He's supposed to be comical.

    See I never saw him as comical... mostly because he's a sadistic fuck, I thought the lisp was kinda jarring with that, but knowing Martin, I can see that being on purpose. TBH I'm happy either way, if they leave it in, that's cool, it's a unique thing for his character, if they take it out, myeh, it was kinda annoying anyway

    also true story every SINGLE time I try to close the spoiler tag, I WILL spazz out and write [s/poiler] by accident the first time... wtf is wrong with me?

    I found reading the wiki articles after each episode helped immensely in clearing a few things up

    Watched e9, yeah I'm slow. The actual battle was the least entertaining part of it. It's all about the dialogues and conversations imo. Less bloodsplatter and more Davos, the hound and Bronn next time. Bronn is just fucking fantastic everytime he gets screentime.
    The nerve is called the "nerve of awareness". You cant dissect it. Its a current that runs up the center of your spine. I dont know if any of you have sat down, crossed your legs, smoked DMT, and watch what happens... but what happens to me is this big thing goes RRRRRRRRRAAAAAWWW! up my spine and flashes in my brain... well apparently thats whats going to happen if I do this stuff...

    Or buy a copy of the first book, it has an 80 page appendix detailing each of the houses and their relationships with one another.

    The HBOZ marathon, that has technically been going on all weekend, is restarting now with episode one of this season running up to the season finale.

    I can't wait for the last scene. Uuuuuuhoooooo. Uuuuuuuuuhooooooooo. Uuuuuuuuuuuuhooooooooooooooo. (A Storm of Swords prologue) At least that's my guess.


    It's gonna be a nice cliffhanger. And then another long offseason. /sigh

    Given that the season 2 teasers had three horn blasts in the background I think its fair to assume that that's the way the season will end.

    Been watching season 2 all day. So many people bitched about pacing and how "nothing happened" in a couple episodes, but taken as a whole the pacing is pretty great. I didn't realize they changed actors for the Mountain. The guy from last season seemed much more sinister or at the very least much more enormous. Hope Arsten shows up tonight.

    Conan Stevens (The Mountain from season 1) left the show and will be in the Hobbit. Many people are upset with him for using GoT as a launch pad, but meh. Everyone needs to eat. But he WAS the mountain through and through. This new guy can't convince me after seeing Conan play the part last season.

    Awesome episode. Pretty sad with Daenarys' part in the House. But that last scene was epic imo. Samwell's face when seeing the whitewalkers was awesome. I'm pretty interested what this whitewalker army is going to do next season. Only sad part is that no GoT for a year :/
    What are we without the sky?

    I didn't like it tbh. That's the first time I've ever felt down about an episode. So much cool story gone to the wind.
