    Today is apparently Emmy submission day. Dinklage submitted as supporting again, so will not be running into the Cranston buzzsaw.

    Lose: to suffer defeat, to misplace (Ex: "I hope I don't lose the match." "Did you lose your phone again?")
    Loose: about to slip, to release (Ex: "That knot is loose." "Loose arrows.")

    Something that hasn't been mentioned about this episode: Arya's kill list. Awesome. Loved the way she added on a few more names later. I feel like I might have missed a name though. What were the names she mentioned?

    This is by memory, so not 100%: Cersei, Joffrey, The Mountain, Polliver (the interrogator), and I think Jaime was on the list.

    EDIT: Ugh, I forgot Ser Ilyn Payne, the dude who actually chopped off Ned's head. And the Hound. I suck.

    I didn't think the interrogator was Polliver, I thought he was the tickler.

    I don't remember hearing Polliver but I fully understand him being on the list.
    "Joffrey. Cersei. Ilyn Payne. The Hound." was the original list (repeated over).
    After the woman begs for food and gets beaten she adds "The Mountain."

    The woman says "Please, Polliver, just some bread!" and gets clubbed in the face.

    Then Arya adds Polliver and the Mountain to the list.

    Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Polliver, the Mountain...

    Oh, yeah. I never got around to looking for those. Were they at all interesting?

  • JragghenJragghen Registered User regular
    Just googled it with "dragon eggs"

    Apparently you had to have the menu open while watching the episodes themselves in order for an icon to appear where you could access them.

    That was glorious.

    Liked how Maisie and Sophie were given the same scene. It's pretty much the perfect one to show their differences.

    edit: and Miltos having to ask for the line was interesting. I hadn't realized that was still a thing people do, especially in auditions. Sophie was the only other one with an issue remembering.

    Holy shit this episode was AWESOME

    When I read the birthing scene in the book the only thing flashing in my head was "HOW ARE THEY EVEN GOING TO DO THIS IN THE SHOW??" but they actually pulled it off. Harrenhal was really neat too. Too bad about the Mountain, this new guy just has the length and none of the rest of the physical presence of the previous mountain.

    I'm glad about the latter, but if Dinklage is supporting I don't know who the lead is. Not that there really is one in a show like this, I guess, but isn't he first billed this season?

    Regardless, Tyrion's scenes continue to delight.

    Oh, and they continue the pattern of having at least one prostitute in damn near every episode.

    Yeah, nobody submitted as lead. And Jack Gleason didn't submit at all, which is dumb. He's giving the third best performance so far (Tyrion, obvs, and I think Maisie Williams is #2, though your mileage may vary).

    Gleeson really should have, he's probably the most hated villain I've ever seen, and since that's kind of his job that suggests he's freaking killing it.

    It's still astounding that Sean Bean didn't get at least a nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series last year.

    Sure, the show now features even more concurrent intertwined storylines and a growing cast of major characters, but Season 1 was unquestionably all about Ned Stark and heavily showcased Sean Bean's talents. What a shame!

    I didn't even realize that was the Mountain.

    Same. I missed him completely. I miss the old Mountain already.

    Count me as another that didn't even notice the Mountain was in this episode. I barely noticed he was big. You have to really be careful filming scenes with big people, the camera can actually make every look closer in size if you are not careful.

    *edit* just re-watched his scene. I guess he is tall, but he has none of the menace of the old mountain, and no bulk. His new armor does not suit him at all.

    Yeah, like I buy him as evil, but he looks middle-eastern, he kind of reminded me of count dooku, when he should remind me of like a giant wrestler. I mean I guess it shows how hard it is to be big and muscley at that height, Conan Stevens was a freak. Also the armour and chainmail made him look lanky, like it didnt give him any shoulders, also the hat, while fine on regular soldiers, looks downright Knights Who Say Ni on the new Mountain.

    I think they could make him work, but I have a feeling that by the time more Mountain scenes come, they may just hire Conan again if he's done with Hobbit filming. At least thats what im hoping

    God the Television Without Pity forums have gotten godawful for game of thrones. They're all gathered around, preaching to each other about how the Joffrey scene was clearly only there to titillate the perverse HBO fanbase and normalize sexual violence. There was also mention of how since the writer for that episode was female, she must've been trying to overcompensate and write things that men wanted to see.

    I had to run for it once they started dropping "rape culture" into the conversation. Not because of them talking about rape culture, but because they weren't even defining it vaguely correctly.

    Aaaargh. I may be grouchy here sometimes, but goddamn PA forums I do so appreciate your general non-pretentiousness.

    My favorite part was just after she shut him down you could hear one of the soldiers talking in the background say something that sounded remarkably like "heyoooooo!"

    "Rape culture" might have been an apt description if they made it clear that bedpost thing was being inserted into that chick instead of just being used as a crappy paddle. I've seen porn where the girl takes harder shots than that and loves every second of it.
