    Oh, stop it you guys...things are really getting out of hand here; don't know if I can handle the direction of this conversation.

    There's something off here, but I can't put my finger on it...

    I'm having some trouble grasping it as well.

    Hands down, one of the best jokes in a while.

    Does anybody else find the way the Theon thing is going quite jarring?

    I have to admit, I am mildly confused by the actions of "the mystery dude" who is helping Theon.

    There are still some signs that he is Ramsay Snow, such as when he uttered the Stark words, "Winter is Coming" (possibly being the bastard son of a Stark bannerman, after all), despite having supposedly being sent by Theon's sister. However, sadistic as he is, there wasn't anything in the book that would suggest that Ramsay Snow would kill his own men, especially when they're carrying out his orders. He also never makes any effort to hide his sadism in the book, always operating on the "hand-wringing, teeth-gnashing evil" setting.

    I think they are trying to make his "tricking" of Theon more plausible to the TV audience. Ramsay is making Theon believe he was sent by his sister, so that she will let them inside the castle they are holding (Deepwood Motte?). There was a hint of that in the preview for the next episode. Whatever the case, there's no doubt in my mind that the mystery dude is Ramsay.

    Hmm, intriguing. I didn't stick around to watch the preview, so I'll have to check that out. But that would also create another divergence from the book, as the Ironborn held Deepwood Motte up until ADWD when Stannis came marching in.

    Curious.

    Stannis's plotline will become truly interesting, and very important for the whole realm - but I think they won't show what will he really do until next season.

    I see you guys have had a handful of good jokes back there...

    I must be getting my timelines confused then. The preview just showed Theon and Mystery Man/Ramsey sneaking up to a castle wall. It's possible it's just the Dreadfort. :shrug:

    Indeed. If the Red Wedding is going to be the "big event" of season 3, then the battle at the Wall between the Night's Watch, wildings and ultimately Stannis' forces will be the marquee event of season 4.

    I am curious as to whether or not they'll fit the skirmish between the Night's Watch and the wildlings who scaled the wall into season 3 or if it'll get pushed into season 4.

    Know what we REALLY haven't had enough of? "You know nothing, Jon Snow." Need some more of that.

    ^

    We also need copious details about (Tri)Pod.

    Oh, oh! One more!

    Jaime and Brienne's scenes single-handedly elevated the episode, especially when he told them to unhand him.

    I'm glad the puns are back. I felt they were cut short.

    Jaimie should have bribed him with more thappireths. He might not be able to fight, but he could still be Hand of the King.

    Ok guys, all of these puns are an under-handed method for pushing this thread off-topic.

    He had a sword, but easily let them disarm him. Jamie is a real knuckle-head isn't he?

    On the contrary, I thought he faced the situation quite handily, despite being short handed at that point in time.
