    Unfortunately, it does seem like that's likely, with Littlefinger riding over the hill at the end. F that guy. I hope Sansa chops off his nuts at some point.

    So I just saw last nights episode, and having only seen episodes 1 & 2 of the first season I gotta say, this show looks pretty good.

    Im very eager to see if we see anything from Brann before the season finale or if they are saving more of his story for the next season. The past few episodes have definitely been a giant buildup, so it'll be exciting to see it all go down

    It would make little to no sense if Littlefinger and Brienne of Tarth don't show up at that battle. Now whether or not they win........

    I have a really hard time seeing Ramsey dying next week. It just feels like this world never gives you what you think is the "right thing".

    Also, complete crack pot theory......the white walkers come?

    I doubt it.

    The trailer's pretty good, the action looks as big-budget as they pulled off in the big episode of last year. Looks like we might finally get some fallout on the Shireen/Melisandre/Davos thing, which is too bad, since Davos and Melisandre are my favorite characters at this point and I don't want one of them to have to go!

    I finally had a chance to watch Sunday's episode.

    So, the Blackfish dies off-camera...I'm thinking they missed an opportunity to show a little action there.
    I'm hoping there was a reason why they did it that way, but who knows.

    The wine drinking and joking scene was entertaining, for me. I just thought it seemed really organic, even though it it a change of pace for a minute. Of course, I like how they changed the pace for a minute, too. I also liked the scenes with Jamie. He's the character you hate to like or like to hate, and you're never sure which.

    Some of the scenes seemed a little dragged out to me, but not horrible: the royal announcement, the Brotherhood without Banners, and first Arya scene.

    I've heard "in the bag" but I've never even heard of "in the books"

    I've heard of "in the books". I consider it quite common. Maybe it's a regional thing?

    The confusion is in the confusion.

    The first book, IMO, was really good. Not the best book I've read, and I haven't read that many, TBH, but I quite enjoyed it, for the most part. The second book as well. The last two books, to me, were a bit of a chore to read, on the other hand.

    Anyway, the show is great, not perfect, not spectacular, but great, for me. I quite enjoy it. I have very high expectations for the next two episodes, though, so I might be on here in two weeks complaining about how much I hate the show.

    It sounds like a Ricky-ism from Trailer Park Boys, where people mangled an actual phrase into something else and use it wrong to boot :D "ON THE BOOKS" is a common phrase meaning that something is officially recorded, like it's written into law, or it's above board. "In the books" doesn't even have results in urban dictionary!

    Okay guys, I just noticed something. You know how the general prediction is that Littlefinger is gonna show up Rohan-style with the Knights of the Vale? If you view the second trailer for Season 6, there's a quick scene of Littlefinger in the forest encountering someone, and he looks kind of guilty or ready for a battle of wits. This scene (as far as I can tell) hasn't shown up yet in the show.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EI0ib1NErqg it's at 0:43.

    Any ideas? Maybe Sansa or Ramsey will meet him and either discuss terms with him or kill him. Not really sure!

    Yea, that scene hasn't happened yet. He's standing in the snow meeting someone. I'm sure he'll continue doing what he's always done and try to .... someone over lol

    Huh. I'll blame that one on growing up in a small rural town in the middle of nowhere. Thanks for the shedding of my ignorance.

    We're not saying it doesn't exist, we're just saying it's terribly uncommon in the areas that some of us live in so it SOUNDS fake
