Thank goodness...I know it's trivial but I like seeing nice dresses.....A kind of fantasy/science fiction fashionista :p :D .

I also look forward to seeing more of Brienne and am looking forward to her and Jaime inter-acting, whenever that will be? She is one of my favourites.

Watched this week's show last night - very violent in parts, and a couple of fabulous Tyrion scenes, I actually cheered at one point.

Last weeks episode was when one of the Baratheon brothers is murdered. I think I am a week behind everyone else, but I tend to close my eyes when I know something gruesome is going to happen. I also love Tyrion and Bronn :p they're a good team!


I will be looking forward to Tuesday's episode. I will also enjoy it when Maegery gets to take on Cersei, that should be interesting.

Yes you're a week behind, you might want to cover your eyes a couple of times in the next episode though.

I think that doesn't really happen till next season IIRC, or even in the 4th, depending on how they edit things. But yes, that is one of my favorite parts, esp towards the end of the 4th book. I should have felt some sympathy for her walk of shame, but I practically cheered as I read it!

The next episode is on tonight and I will be closing my eyes in some parts...I think sometimes it is way too violent :eek: and I hate the sight of blood!!!

I think the battles between Maegery and Cersei will begin this season and reach it's conclusion in later Seasons(hopefully it gets renewed). I also cheered when I read what happens to Cersei :D .....I have a feeling the show will probably end on the battle between Stannis and the Lannisters. But I would love to see more of Jaimie and Brienne and also more Robb!...But I DO love the verbal jousting of Tyrion and Bronn :D they make me laugh.

Pray God the writers of the show will ignore the book that doesn't have Tyrion in it or hopefully they'll combine the book with another and keep Tyrion in the show. I have to admit I found that book a hard slog! :rolleyes:

I love the banter between Bronn and Tyrion too, although there hasn't been that much of it so far this series. Haven't seen this week's show yet.

I like Bronn as a character. I haven't seen last night's episode yet, either.
