That's right! Al Gore invented the internet, let's all go kick his ass!
I got your inconvenient truth right here, motherf*&¨%!
end of spoilers
Cat had already found out about Bran and Rickon before she went to see Jamie and it was explain in the book. In fact, this was the reason why she went to see Jamie, because she wanted what was left of her family back.
Price your book at $3.99 and I'll trade wait. Make me wait too long for the trade PAPERback and I'll say screw it. I'm looking at you Marvel and Spider Island.
whoah, that was pretty spoiler-ish!
I have to say, one of my favorite elements from Book 2 was spoilers:
end of spoilers???
all the work Tyrion did to defend the castle. Not really seeing that on the show so far, IMO.
And really... no chain

I'm really curious how they're going to pull it off. Not in a negative, "there's no way they can pull it off" way, but generally interested in the kind of choices they're going to make in depicting the battle on the Blackwater. I'm actually pretty excited, even though I know it won't compare to the images I already have in my head.
Episode 8 will show the preparations and Stannis fleet arriving, 9 should be the bulk of the battle. I think we'll see a fair few wide CGI shots of wildfire being used, they asked for more money because they didn't want it to disappoint and it's why Robb's armies battles have not been shown in full, they had to prioritise scenes and allocate funds accordingly.
I think it's safe to assume they've been saving most of their budget this season for those episodes.
I realize they've alluded to the battle in the show, but enough with the details already.

wasn't me this time!
Typically when a movie/tv version is better than the original work is when it is mostly accurate to the original (like The Watchmen, The Lord of the Rings and the first season of Game of Thrones).
I think that the reason that Dexter works so well despite the fact that it is not following the source material is because it follows a very workable show structure. Insert overarching villain/mystery for the season. Insert overarching villain/mystery for the episode. It's a good formula for TV because it works even though the writers have no idea where they are going in the next season. They don't need an overarching plot for the whole show. Just for each season.
A show like Game of Thrones cannot work in a similar way. It would not be nearly as good if there wasn't a solid direction for where it was going to be next season and the season after right now. I don't have faith that a team of tv writers can make changes that will improve a story as complex as The Song of Ice and Fire series.
