Told ya. By the 5th book he was one of my favorite characters.

As for Shireen, I don't remember if it's come up before this point in the story yet or not, so I don't want to spoil anything, but she has a condition known in the books as "Greyscale". You'll learn more about it later. That's what that shit on her face is.

Greyscale...Dang, I thought she'd gotten burned or something. Well, least she made it, unlike her siblings. I hipe she's not slowly turning into a monster creature. XD

Also, looking at pictures of the lady who plays Brienne and...Goddamn...Makeup effects and posture really go a long way.

Well, if I remember right, it was explained by now in the books, so I can tell you without really spoiling anything.

It's a srs bzns calcification of the skin and so on. While it's fatal in adults, children can and do survive it. Shireen is cured of it, but it left her disfigured. She had a bout of it as an infant but survived. Get it as an adult, however, and it turns you to "stone" and eventually kills you. But the kid, she's A-ok.

Serious cases won't come up until later, and when they do... That's gonna be sum shit to see. Boy howdy.

OH GOD, THEON. THEON. JESUS CHRIST WHY.

Also, the Wall scene had me hyperventilating. Holy fucks in a sack.

I thought the wall-climbing scene was pretty cool. Nothing else really stuck out to me this episode besides the Theon torture stuff. Although I guess it was nice to see more Tyrion, even if only briefly.

The thing that stuck out most for me this week was the whole thing with Melissandre meeting the BWB and taking Gendry. Because that totally didn't happen in the books, at all. Which means Gendry is taking on the role of a certain book character who hasn't been in the show, which is crazy and makes me wonder if he'll get to go back to being regular book storyline Gendry.

YESSS, Tormund Giantsbane. The dirty-talking HARHAR-ing Tormund from the books finally arrives. I am so happy.

Wow Theon's scenes are way worse than anything in the books.

Edit: Aaaand this episode had the best version of "The Rains of Castamere" imo

Anyone else feel that Osha's tantrum and sad story scene was particularly poorly done?

It just didn't seem to fit at all for me, especially her saying "I don't want you speaking to him anymore"

Osha's too different from book Osha IMO. In the books she was the one telling Bran that he'd better pay attention to Jojen, encouraging all that stuff. Quite the opposite of the show. I get that GRRM likes her and wants to give her more screen time, but there's no reason to flip her around like that.

As soon as those girls walked into the room with Theone, I knew he was gonna lose his wang.

I get that GRRM likes her and wants to give her more screen time, but there's no reason to flip her around like that.

I haven't even read the book and Osha seems like she's going against her character. She just seems like the type to support that stuff, even in some small way. I get a very shaman-like vibe from her. She's one of my favourites, and her recent silliness is disappointing me.

I guess they're going on Gilly's word, which worries me. But holy shit the crows were awesome. I love the way this scene hints at shit waaaay later in the story.
