Littlefinger actor is perfect, and so is Varys, but i'm dissapointed with Aemon, who doesn't look old and wise at all. To me, he seems like some demented old man. Oh, and that conversation between Cercei and her son(don't know how his name is spelled in english) is little too much for me.

Still, show is good so far, but imo this last episode is weakest.

Mayor Carcetti playing Petyr Baelish aka Littlefinger seems perfect for the role.

My favourite characters of all are Tyrion, Arya and Jon. Arya has most gruelling story arcs in book.
Yeah Littlefinger's actor is very good, still waiting to hear that epic line that he gives.

"Distrusting me was the wisest thing you've done since you climbed off your horse."

What I really want to see is the 10th episode Fire and Blood. Those that have read the books will know why. Drogon, Viserion and Rhaegal, they are going to be epic! I really want to know how they are going to make them for the show, CGI or puppets or something else?

^^ Thank you, I was too lazy to check on wiki or something. Its little difficult to remember how its spelled in English when you read it in phonetic language(all names are transcribed in Serbian).

Btw, didn't you spoil it a little with that cgi part?

I hope they use really minimal amount of CGI in this whole series. Some backdrops and armies marching would be ok and some "things" that cant be made realistic otherwise but too much CGI many times ruin series.

Was thinking about ghost in particular when i saw this photo and was relieved



Next episode should bring of course few other favourite characters of this series along with few nasty ones. Guess whos here



Just finished Clash of Kings second time and off to Storm of Sword vol1 now. After few years that been reading almost only BL books, i can say for sure these are lightyears away of anything Fantasy related that BL has published. Characters on this series are best of all i have ever read.

Ep 3 down and i really enjoyed; best scenes for me was anything involving Lord Tyrion and the scene with the King reminiscing about deaths...v good stuff!
also Cersei is a v sharp cookie!

Lord of the night in terms of cgi i can only think of one thing off top of my head

if someone could tell me how to do the spoiler hidey thing i'd much appreciate it

Ok that picture of Ghost is bloody well awesome, anyone who says otherwise needs to be killed to prevent such thoughts from spreading. As for CGI as long as they only use it for the important things, and obviously to create Drogon, Viserion and Rhaegal, I am fine with it.

Gregor Clegane rules! The Mountain that Rides fears no man! Can't wait for season 2 when he really gets going, I want to see him in an actual all-out fight, which I suppose we will get to see such later in the season, once Tywin Lannister appears.

My two favourite secondary characters in ASoIaF, Sandor and Gregor Clegane. The Hound and The Mountain are epic . Especially the Mountain in full armor plate,



Badass, isn't it.

Just found this image of a character who will debut in the next episode. Loras Tyrell, the Knight of Flowers, with and without his helmet, which is quite awesome .
