    Did those of you who haven't read the books understand what went down between Qhorin Halfhand and Jon Snow last night? I thought they didn't do a good job of explaining it.

    Can't believe we have to wait a year for the next season!

    In the previous episode he did whisper to Jon Snow that he should make sure the deaths of his comrades were not meaningless. That was a tell-tale suggestion.
    It would be hard to fathom any other way about the fact that Jon Snow can let a stranger (Ygritte) go but kill a teacher that easily.

    What a season's Finale...zombie troop approaching the northern wall!

    Hoping to see Joffrey got slain..if ever.
    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.

    Glad it was apparent - in the books the crows were tracked by Rattle Bones and his lot. Qhorin realized they were all going to die as the Wildlings typically don't take prisoners and he talked the plot over with Jon. Jon would have lost the fight if not for Ghost as Qhorin was making it look a little too real and was a better swordsman!

    Loved the Wight Walkers! And the dragons look really cool! Wonder where I could get one?:eek:

    Can't wait for next season. Lots of twists and turns ahead. And i little justice. Anybody else get the books because you couldn't wait ?

    I've read 'em all except the first one, "Game of Thrones". Got to say I was a little (only a little) disappointed in some of the changes from the book at the end of last season. There's so much in the books that it'd be very difficult to make the series without combining characters, changing plot lines, etc.

    Still a great series though. G.R.R. Martin is writing the 6th book - don't know when it'll be released.

    A bit of trivia: the actress playing Robb Starks's wife Talisa (Oona Chaplin), is the grand daughter of Charlie Chaplin.

    Tyrion's the man!

    Just read this on the Rolling Stone site: A Game of Thrones prequel could be in the works, according to series creator George R. R. Martin. There are talks of turning his 'Tales of Dunk and Egg' novellas – which also take place in Westeros, but 100 years before the events of 'Game of Thrones' – into a TV show.
