    Yeah, I actually prefer her in the book. Probably because I'm biased against the actress who plays her: I hate everything about her.

    The wall is honorable. It is just not treated as such because the rest of the seven kingdoms has forgotten the real menace in the world. How Ned handled the whole situation in King's Landing was honorable. Stupid as sh*t but honorable. I'm not saying honorable is good or smart, but it is what it is.

    Fair enough. I'm looking at it from a Southerner perspective, but I guess in this case Ned was right. Still though. Poor Jon Snow the bastard...

    I because super curious about bran and where his character goes. and rickon and osha as well. i'm curious as to what lies ahead for all of them
    That's the one storyline I think is really badly done in the series. It's difficult to transpose that onto screen because lot of Bran's character happens in his head. Last night was the first time I was actually interested in what was going on with them, but it was mostly because Rickon suddenly developed into a character. (I LOVE Rickon in the books btw! Who calls a wolf Shaggydog? If the dogs are like their masters, then maybe he [who has the wolf that savages people] will end up being the Stark who saves the day.)

This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    I think that several big things will happen during the finale. these things will involve several of the lannisters, arya. and jon snow. although the jon snow stuff might be a holdover for the start of season 4.

    thoughts?

    Jon Snow has a long way to go yet. I think it will happen in season 4 and 5 (ending where the 5th book ended with Jon)

    I think you are correct with Arya.

    Lannisters - I am not sure if they are saving the major events there for next season or not. I think they need to develop Tyrion's past more before they can go ahead with at least one of the major Lannister events. I can see one event happening as a finale but they may have to leave the other until next season.

    I have nothing against the actress. She does a decent job in my mind. Too old sure but so is everyone.

    As for Rickon...in the books so far he is pretty much useless. I assume he will be of some use later but who knows.

    reasonable thoughts. all of them. I think you are right about the jon things maybe. an episode is only so long. same with the tyrion stuff. the other lannister thing will probably be included. and definitely the arya stuff. the thing is, I feel like there needs to be another driving event in the finale. like 2 major things that will be playing back and forth. so i'm trying to think of what else they will put in there
