  • Game of Thrones - Season 4: Who Is Jon Snow?

    I just put this up here because it's the elephant in the HBO Original Series room without a thread.

    Ready for 10 more episodes, beginning April 6? I just have Season III to catch up on this weekend - hoping for more blood, f-bombs, walking dead things, coarse but brilliant dialog, incest and other family values.

    I have a bad feeling about our beloved Starks .

        Read the books a dozen years ago. Now a TV fan because the series will finish first. My friend's wife was just catching up to S3 E9 before they went on vacation. I hope my DVD case is still intact.

          Question: Are spoilers from the books kosher, or should this be kept 100% spoilers-from-the-books-that-the-series-hasn't-covered-yet free?

            Depends: How obtuse and vague can you be?
            Statements like "a disgraced nobleman's son joins the Night's Watch" are perfectly fine, as are instances of Catelyn Does Something Reckless.

              Perhaps you should just white them out so those who've read the books can discuss.

              I've read through book 2 this past summer. I was going to continue, but a coworker told me that reading book 3 would likely provide spoilers for season 4 of the show. I'll read the next book once season 4 ends.

              The teasers HBO has been running look awesome. The teasers focusing on Tyrion look to be most intriguing, I'm kind of hoping his continued animosity with Joffrey leads to a trial for killing for having killed the king (like Jamie's done so out of necessity). A little lion on lion carnage is due.

              If Dani can get to Westeros this season, there's going to be some great deaths happening there, too. There's only so much time she can spend building an army. Of course, the size of her dragons are really going to drive that timeline more than anything at this point.

                  Unless I'm the only one, it would appear that much like the season finale of True Detective, the season premiere of GoT has broken HBOGo. I will likely wait until tomorrow to watch it.

                    That might have been one of the fastest hours of TV I've seen in a long time.

                          Still kind of a shame to get the cliffs notes versions of some of this stuff, but I'm still impressed by this show every time I see it.

                            Brienne and Jamie continue to be wonderful together, but perhaps this season they may be surpassed by The Hound and Arya. That whole scene was golden.

                            Edit: I thought that guy with Dany was Sonny from Treme. Sure enough.

                              I took the last scene with Arya riding her own horse, with them riding into a burning land to mean that they're not going to the Vale anymore, but they are going to the place we know is burning, the North.
