    There are murmurs going around that, maybe, they're going to end the show with one or two, 100 million dollar each, theatrically released movies.

    Was interesting to see how the show presented Arya's satisfactory and disturbed sentiments at the same time, with the latter quality achieved principally through the music.

    Worried for Shae. It seems unlikely that she'll make it through the whole series, but I'd been optimistic that her arc would be longer. The [
    ] of a link to Dinklage seems to foretell her demise this season.

    I was wondering from the start who the new brown haired guy was with Daenerys and looking online it looks like they recast Daario Naharis (blond haired guy before). But once I got past that it was fantastic. I'm Team Arya all the way.

    Greyworm made sure to awkwardly call him by his full name in his first scene just to let viewers know that.

    Michael Huisman is a big improvement over skinny Fabio, though. I like that guy a lot.

    I was actually just reading about Matt Damon and he’s like, ‘There’s a culture of outrage.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they have a reason to be outraged.’ I think it’s a lot of dudes just being scared. They’re like, ‘What if I did something and I didn’t realize it?’ I’m like, ‘Deal with it.’

    Yeah, Huisman is an upgrade for sure. I knew they were recasting Daario but I'd forgotten it was Huisman so that was a pleasant surprise. I hope that dude gets more work.

    He's going to be a major character in the second season of Orphan Black. The guy's on 3 popular TV shows this season.

    I was kind of surprised that they let him keep his regular look on GOT. When they announced the casting I thought they'd make him shave and dye his hair.

    Anyway, this episode was all about The Hound and his hilarious one-liners. The show's sense of humor is often underrated.

    I think Dina and I laughed more often during the episode than during most recent comedies.

    I had no idea who he was until then. That seems weird that they recast him but a quick google shows that I guess he was cast in the new Transporter movie and he figured that would be a better career move...

    It's crazy how fast these episodes fly. You think twenty minutes have gone by and I look at the clock and it's 45 minutes.

    Was Margaery saying the wedding is in a fortnight a real-world hint that the royal wedding will be in episode 3?

    Because I'm already anticipating the internet reaction and memes.

    two more seasons for this. Will that allow them to wrap it all up in sync with Martin's books?

    There will be another renewal. HBO said they envision seven seasons, eight tops. I think that might still be cutting it close, so that could change, but I think the show will go at least seven seasons. I also saw rumors about the possibility of a couple of feature films wrapping things up.

    It's even possible the series will end before the books. I read something recently about Benioff and Weiss visiting Martin to discuss the story's endgame. Martin's just nowhere near finishing the books and the series isn't going to stop rolling to wait on him.

    Here's a good rundown of the possibilities if Martin can't get the final two books finished in time:

    http://www.avclub.com/article/george...ame-thr-202330

    EDIT: Whoops, wrong article. That's the one where Martin is optimistic he can finish before the show. He hints that he's already close to done with book six.

    I think a prequel season, even a shortened one that's only 6-8 episodes covering stuff like the Mad King's reign would be amazing. I don't see HBO going for that, though.
