True. But only for the viewers. I just hope they handle the Big Reveal to the characters in a believable way.

Re: White Walker v. Wight

That wight/white thing is probably why so many people get them confused. It was much clearer when there was only the printed page.

Re: White Walker v. Wight

I agree with you - wights are dead humans and White Walkers are some other kind of being. Jon and Co. are trying to capture a wight to bring back to prove that the dead are coming. I don't think that there's any expectation that Jon and Co. would be able to capture a White Walker.

Re: Wait, so are D&D producing the spin-offs or not?

Just for completeness here the link to GRRM's blog on the subject: http://grrm.livejournal.com/536859.html I'm thinking of two possible spinoffs - Game of Thrones Enterprise , which is about the Valyrians first learning to train their dragons and Game of Thrones Voyager about a shipload of Westerosi...

Re: Curmudgeon comments

The "fast travel" stuff doesn't bother me. We can't expect all timelines of every storyline to line up exactly, otherwise we'd be forced to watch a bunch of boring, unnecessary filler in one storyline while another catches up. Take LF travelling from The Vale to Mole's Town so quickly for example. ...

Re: Curmudgeon comments

I guess we have to accept it's magic! Y'know, I'm good with that. It's what I signed on for. I'm not going to try to figure out how something as massive as a dragon can fly, either - that's what dragons do, it's magic, I'm good. And if somebody mentioned that Littlefinger used a magic spell to get ...

Re: Curmudgeon comments

Not sure what you mean here, but if it's Arya's final scene with the Waif - knocking a candle to the ground usually extinguishes it. Not necessarily but that's not the way I remember it, anyway. I believe they showed Needle cutting the candle in half and immediately everthing went black. Very drama...

Curmudgeon comments

I think I’m getting old and cranky. Check that. I know I’m getting old and I’ve been assured that I’m getting cranky. Anyhow, as much as I like GoT, I’m starting to get annoyed with it. The reality checks just keep adding up. Some of my quibbles come directly from GRRM but this season in particular ...

Re: Meera's knowledge

By using the logic that we, the viewers, have already seen these things happen and therefore do not need to see the facts explained to other characters, it then follows that we do not need to see Jon Snow find out about his parents. I do understand the point about not moving the story forward in th...

Re: Meera's knowledge

Still, it would have been nice to see Meera in new clothes. At least then it would have been easier to assume that she had some kind of interaction with the Starks.
