Sounds like my ex-girlfriend.

My goodness Emilia Clarke has a lovely body.
And she apparently is not shy about revealing same in her theater and cinematic appearances




I think I'll be keeping my recording of the
Last ep. On my dvr longer than I usually do.

It could be argued that Joffrey does have a lot of sexual desire but would rather use torture and violence as his means to gratification. In ten years he'll probably have the GoT FBI serial killer profilers after him.

Criminal Minds: Westeros. Coming soon.

The two most twisted characters have no interest in sex it seems. Little finger and Joffrey. Actually if you say devious, the three most - add Varys. Hmmmm
post #3125 of 4641
I don't know about Littlefinger. Me thinks he has the hots for Sansa and is just waiting for the right time to make a move.

I would agree with Otto, but he's projecting his obsession with Cat onto Sansa. Hoping he can live his fantasy through her.
As far as Joffery goes I don't think it's lack of interest, but rather "stimulation".

Ok, they don't HAVE sex. All that frustration leads to destructive scheming and sadism in one form or another. Anyone seen the wizard in the box recently? wink.gif

I don't think that Stannis Baratheon would have been so apprehensive and guilty if they were just going to place a few leeches on Gendry. It doesn't look good for him.

So it has seemed....

Another possibility too.

Seems like a jarring substitution this coming Sunday to have Game of Thrones displaced by HBO's Liberace movie "Behind the Candelabra." eek.gif

So, two weeks before we get the season's penultimate episode.

HBO's programmers must believe the Liberace audience is more Memorial Day-proof than GoT's is.

I'm OK with it. GoT S3 will be over too soon anyway.

Don't forget that without his guards, Joffrey is a total wimp--when it comes to any direct physical threat. You know that Ros could have whooped his ass, if she hadn't been tied up.

Just as an FYI this has spoilers. Not just differences of past events but spoilers from books four and five in it.

Well she said, if it wasn't for Davos, there would be no leeches. This is what she had to resort to, to tease what she can do with a full bucket of gory death. Or whatever she wants to do with him. Burn him alive I'm sure.

Just reading the description from what that suer posted put the spoiler warnings across my radar......I wouldnt touch it with a 10 foot pole unless I had read the books...

Agreed. I've read them though so I'll check it out.

It's easy to see why...

It is interesting reading though. I'm almost done with the last book but haven't come across any spoilers yet. I hear that GoT may go to seven seasons. Don't know how true or accurate that is but I can't see how HBO can avoid not doing that. There is so much left to show that if they rush it, I think the quality will deteriorate and lots of viewers will give up because it just keeps getting more complicated (at least in the books). I've really enjoyed both. The HBO series as a standalone story beautifully shot, directed, and acted, and the books to fill in what I don't quite understand in the HBO series.

I think if they continue to garner such high viewership, it may go over 9 seasons.

With the story stalled while awaiting further releases, they have to spread the love in hopes the creator can have enough time to finish it. Kind of stinks that the pace has slowed though.
post #3146 of 4641
Slowed even further now with it not being on this weekend and with only two episodes left. Momentum kill.

Well documented behavioral pattern at play here,


Make the euphoric, addictive substance readily available to the masses at relatively inexpensive prices,
And squeeze them down to their last penny.

I would sell my children for 5 more seasons of GOT

Considering that they ahve split this season in two, he still has a number of years (at minimum 3) to finish the 6th book..Thats if they dont split the remaining books into 2 seasons as well...The pace I think is perfect at the moment as some of the "slower" moments have been the best (dialogue driven)....These are long books and fitting it all into 10-13 hours is not easy wink.gif ....ok ok enough about the books

This Sunday just wont be the same without GoT frown.gif
post #3150 of 4641
Book 4 is fairly short, and Book 5 is quite long, so I would think that it would take 7 seasons to get through book 5. We don't know how long books 6 and 7 will be. Figure 9 to 11 seasons total.
