    Oh yeah I was wondering about that. I don't remember that from the book at all. Seems to me like she's a Faceless, maybe this is just their introduction so we can relate them to Jaqen?

    There is a woman with a wooden mask in the books, who comes along with the initial contact party. Doesn't offer much beyond "Those Warlock guys are crazy".

    *to the bookshelf!

    Having checked, she is Quaithe the shadowbinder, wears a red lacquered mask.

    No, she was in the books. From her arrival in Qarth, ch. 27 of Clash of Kings, summary from awoiaf:

    Huh. Sounds one-note enough that it's the kind of stuff the show usually cuts, or replaces with Ros.

    In retrospect, having Ros suddenly there to warn Jorah would have been hilarious.

    i noticed it because it seemed like the kind of explicit warning a show would need to condense a whole bunch of foreshadowing from the books

    i didn't remember it being in the books, stuff like that blends a lot more into the background of a setting because you're not forced to stare at the lady for X seconds like on TV

    Thing is I remember her simply because the mask was so weird/unique, I was waiting to see if she would turn up, just to see how they would do that. (Really well as it turns out)

    Could still be Ros though, she was wearing a mask after all :P

    To be fair, I glazed over most of the Qarth stuff in Clash. It was for me by far the least interesting part of the book.

    Yes, that annoyed me. They're supposed to sail awesome ass longships, because they're the Westeros equivalent of freakin' Vikings.

    They do capture ships, it's possible his dad gave him a cog as a fuck you

    Hush was probably the best Buffy episode.

    In spite of or actually probably because all of its dialogue could fit in less than 10 pages.

    My favorite line from that episode (besides, well, basically anything from Arya's storyline) was Theon totally ripping off Robb's threat against the Greatjon.

    History is an account, mostly false, of events, mostly unimportant, which are brought about by rulers, mostly knaves, and soldiers, mostly fools.

    Man yeah fuck the rest, the best quote of the evening was

    "If anything should happen to Lord Tyrion, please kill me."

    i can't believe i forgot about Quaithe, because her quote from the book is:

    "To go north, you must journey south, to reach the west you must go east. To go forward you must go back and to touch the light you must pass beneath the shadow."

    Which reminds me of

    "My fellow Americans. As a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball. But tonight I say, we must move forward, not backward; upward, not forward; and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom!"

    Bronn is just so happy with his life.

    Honestly, no one in any of the books has it better than Bronn. He went from nearly-nameless dirtbag sellsword to well paid bodyguard to a land-owning Lord Commander while sacrificing nothing.

    Quaithe's quote and Mirri Maz Duur's curse are both phrases that Dany repeatedly thinks about in her POV chapters, so they are similar in that regard.

    Yeah, that was such bullshit. I hope it's only the Sea Bitch, and it's just an additional insult to Theon.

    If all the Iron Fleet is made up of cogs, I say we get all the Scandinavians together, build some long ships and sail over and sack HBO's monasteries. And take their gold.

    Well, they probably don't have any monasteries either, but I don't care. The Viking answer to everything is sail over in your long ships and take their gold. Maybe we can use the river(s).

    As someone that's from Sweden himself...

    Nuthin wrong with Cogs.
    Scandinavian Expys can pirate in anything that floats (in the case of Cogs, the Vitalian Brotherhood).

    If anything Longships and Knights in full plate sharing a universe is anachronism at its worst.
