Loved it. Many small changes from the books that make it surprising even for us, book readers. Great attention to detail. Incredible performances (even the young ones are getting better and better). The new character, the dornian prince Oberyn, is just like I imagined in the books. Nice to see Ellaria, his lover, is our old friend Niobe from Rome
This season, if it stays true to the books, should be the most action-twist-packed of all. So, stick to your chairs!
it looks like that vision shows past and future events.
Oh yea, it could totally be a past event, but still I've read Daenerys had the same vision back when the dragons were kidnapped.
Back then I tought she was tripping, maybe it was a metaphor, but everything Bran saw really happened at some point. Problem is that throne vision seems so far away, if its both in the past or future.
George RR Martin loves to toy the reader in the books, with true and false foreshadowing to the point you can't be sure of anything. That's what makes it so surprising, sometimes it will follow stereotypes and all of a sudden he does the complete opposite of what you expected.
And when you learn to expect the unexpected, then suddenly he does a different thing. Genius, master work.
It would be fun for us book readers if some non-readers could try to put their theories on what will happen
Yea I can totally see what you're saying by just watching the tv show, my sister read the books and she tells me a lot of details too.
But in the paticular image I'm talking about:
My theory is that the final fate of the Throne is an abandoned room, slowly taken by snow (literal snow, not Jon). Winter rulling them all, and all the fight leading them to a back to basics society, back to 'wilderness'. I would love that ending
But yea maybe it would be better to not think too much about stuff and just enjoy.
Last episode I didn't even enjoy the plot twist as much as I enjoyed the conversations, so many fun carachters interactions on that one. Top notch television in my opinion.
This TV series is slowly getting to the top of tv shows, it's amazing how many things they have achieved. There are details of scenes that put it up there at the level of The wire and The Sopranos.
