Yeah we could at least have a look or two in the right direction, I haven't seen much if any sign of intelligence from the actor (although I think she's pretty good). All I want is an evil eyed look towards any of the lanisters or that new girl (the kings wife). I'm sorry me and names don't get I well :p

(Sorry I haven't read the books)
The Rains of Castamere recalls the rebellion of House Reynes during the time of Tytos Lannister.
Tytos was perceived as incredibly weak by his bannermen. One of these, Lord Reynes of Castamere began a rebellion to overthrow House Lannister as the most powerful house in the Westerlands.
Tytos' son, Tywin Lannister called his father's bannermen and lead the entire strength of Casterly Rock against the upstart Lord Reynes.
During the siege of Castamere, Lord Reynes was killed and his castle sacked by Tywin's host. As punishment for betraying their oaths of fealty, Tywin then executed every last living member of House Reynes as a warning to the rest of his bannermen and to re-establish the dominance and power of House Lannister.

The sigil of House Reynes was a red lion on a gold field, thus the rebellion was later refered to as a 'War of Lions.'



As for the episode itself... I think they did a damn good job of it! Having Talisa there also made for an unexpected shocker to book readers as well, and should now (hopefully) put to rest the theories about Rob potentially having an as yet unborn heir in the books.


And as to where the books are heading... While we have no clue when The Winds of Winter will finally be released, Martin himself has come right out and said that Dany will NOT! be making it to Westeros until the 7th and final novel.

(however, we *should* know by the end of Winds who her two dragonriders will be!;)
My money is on a certain lovable dwarf & ser Jorah being the other two riders...)

I absolutely flipped shit for about 20 minuets after seeing this. I've been meaning to read the books but haven't gotten around to it and now I'm glad I haven't because it think it would have ruined this scene for me.

Seeing Rob all lovey dovey with his wife then the doors are closed and locked I knew something horrible was about the happen. I really wanted to see Rob continue on throughout the show but looks like I was a little too hopeful.

Be interesting to see how the series takes it. I've just finished A Feast For Crows and
