[quote=""rebecca""]Is it just me or does the hour of GOT go so fast that it seems like you've only been watching it for 20 minutes?

My heart went out to Tyrion and I thought Cirian Hinds made a good debut. I can't wait for next Monday.

Finally got round to watching this and yes, poor Tyrion :eek: I had to fast forward some of Dany's scenes though. And Margery Tyrell was good.

I thought both Maegery and Olenna Tyrell were good although with Diana Rigg taking the part one can't go wrong. Looking forward to episode 3 today. I know the show is going to go too fast :( and then we have to wait an entire year to buy the DVD of the Third season. I still don't get that?

Caught up with eps 2 and 3 last night and loved it. They do seem to be zipping through it pretty fast. Loved Jaime and Brienne's fight scene.

I can't remember Theon Greyjoy being in Storm of Swords particularly or did I miss something? And who is his mate/saviour? Can't recall!

No Theon wasn't in book 3 at all, so I'm assuming his storyline has been brought in from a later book? And apparently the guy who's rescued him

I was a little confused when I saw the outcome of what happened with Theon in that it deviates away from the book. This is not a bad thing in that I am sick to death of the Bolton's.

The guy in the show who rescues Theon I have no idea who he is supposed to be? Any help?

Book Spoiler Below
I also loved the battle with Brienne and Jaime, but wow this show goes fast...I wish every episode was 2 hours long :p

I'm also hoping that they will release the DVD of Season 3 this year!

According to the Tower of the Hand website (which has him as one of the most hated characters!) he is
and a thoroughly nasty piece of work.

They are zipping through it aren't the, I can't believe how much they pack into an episode. Mind you there's a lot to get through!

I think Theon is only mentioned in passing in the book. The book spoiler bit must happen in Feast of Crows?
.

Mystery man doesn't seem a nasty piece of work at the moment but time will tell, I suppose! According to my GoT app
I like the Jamie/Brienne bit, too. He's becoming more pleasant if there is such a thing in Game of Thrones. LOL. Ouch, though!

Does anyone watch the Thronecast bit afterwards?

OK hmmm....Now I'm getting more confused...I think the producers are using more than one book here and deviating away from the storyline entirely it seems.

SPOILER BELOW
I wonder if they are also incorporating some of Crows and Dance in the storyline for the TV version?

It's definitely confusing.
They've obviously rejigged things a bit for the TV.
