The crowning was well done, I like how the show is starting to evolve.

I am really sad that Robert is going to die soon, what a great actor.

Someone should add a spoiler alert to this thread and maybe also change the title to the correct spelling

I like the spelling. It makes me laugh at Dave everytime I see it.

And anyone not expecting spoilers in a discussion about books a decade old is an idiot. :lol:

/agree with Andy.

One thing that's been pointed out by others is the lack of the wolves. Has anyone cared? I thought it was lame they didn't demolish the Wildings like in the book.

Uhm, I think they've done a decent job of showing the wolves as significant without harping on them.

When you distill this much text down into the wee show you've really got to pick your focus. They've picked the human politics and we're only gonna get so much from the rest ~ at least for the time being.

I feel like all the scenes the wolves have been in were excellent though. Defending Bran was awesome, so was Lady's death. Ary chasing off her's was kinda unimpressive come to think of it. The book gives a weight to it that the show lost.

Actually the only thing about the portrayal of the wolves that surprises me is that we haven't had any glimpse yet of Bran living as Summer.

If I were gonna pick one element that's been almost completely lacking from the series it'd be Rickton. They must keep that boy locked up in a cage!

Haha.

I was reading on one of the sites that it had something to do with 1) the dog-wolves being hard to "work with," and 2) the fact that by this episode, they're supposed to be so large since they grow quickly, that they can only be represented properly with CGI, which I guess is too expensive or not in the budget. They didn't have a Rome-like budget for GoT, but hopefully they expand it a bit more for Season 2.

If you watched the 7th episode already on HBOgo please don't respond but do you think they will kill both Ned and Robert in the same episode? They happen fairly close together but my guess would be no. I already miss Sean Bean
