The problem is that by killing off so many hero characters so aggressively, there is a good chance that there won't be enough heart left in the entire thing to make it through. Right now it is looking like the series is headed in two annoying directions:

"free the slaves" dragon queen

and

"ice zombies attack".

I would have delayed Ned's death until the end of season 2, and at worst I would have sent Robb into exile someplace.
Why save them? What do you do with them since they have nothing else to contribute to the story?

It could still have been done without killing Ned Stark so quickly.

Sean Bean was the heart and soul of the show IMO. He really brought the Irish into the role.
and whatshisname shouldn't have died at the end of tale of two cities...

I love those 'If GoT took place on Facebook' posts. Nice way to recap an episode. :)

http://happyplace.someecards.com/30451/game-of-thrones-facebook-recap-season-4-episode-1

Episodes scripted by GRRM so far:

Season 1 - The Pointy End, episode 8

Season 2 - Blackwater, episode 9

Season 3 - The Bear and the Maiden Fair, episode 7

Season 4 - The Lion and the Rose, episode 2

The Lion And The Rose... That title makes me think of Lannisters and Tyrells (from the sigils). Maybe Joffrey's wedding to Margaery? I expect a good one.

Thinking about Cercei's 'symptoms'... Maybe she got pregnant from boinking her younger cousin at the time of the siege ("You took too long" she said to Jaime.) and now the ex-meister is helping her a

Every time I see Jorah now I can't help chuckling over "Lord Friend Zone."

Woah, didn't realize they would have Joffrey's wedding so early, I was thinking ep 4 or so. Should be a fun episode.

Kinda expected it myself of course, there will be much going on.

Thought it would an episode or two later myself, could be a curve ball but it seems this would be it.

Hence my *spoilers* were never really *spoilers*, there will be much oddity going on all season.

And I'm still waiting on those B-52's to show up.

:biggrin:

Just wondering: Knowing Martin is it entirely impossible that he has a giant "Fuck You!" planned for the obsessive fans and at the end everyone dies as the White Walkers take over a world of endless winter?

I believe its so that they can put something else in this season that happens in the third book.

I thought this season was to cover the entire second half of the second book. I know the wedding wasn't that far into second part of the book from what I remember. Almost a few chapters removed from the Red Wedding.

Weddings are fun, you get all kinds of people doing silly things.

Remember the Dothraki one in season one where Dany got married to Drago and they said it wasn't interesting unless 3 died.

Maybe more I forget.
