I could have lived without seeing the Lannister squire naked..Cersei only likes guys that are related to her. What's to stop her from getting busy with King Goffrey? :scared: :scared: :scared: :scared: :scared:

I'm going to disagree a bit with frekkells here...I don't think Dany knew the dragons would hatch, and neither she intended them to. Hell, I don't even think she thought she would survive. In the books, she isn't impervious to heat/fire. (Although I understand and agree why they would change that so)

What happened then was a one time deal, something we don't know how it happened, only that it did. Magic is coming back to this world, and brought dragons with it.


I disagree, heh. :lol: Part of Dany knew that the eggs could hatch, and that she would not be harmed by the flames. I don't think she had any intention of dying with her sun and stars, though I know she loved him dearly.


Yeah, I think she knew she wouldn't die too. But the hatching of fossilized dragon eggs, after being extinct for centuries? I don't know, I don't think so.

Because she wouldn't...um..erm...yeah. You've got a point there. I watched this one with a friend, and we joked that this was a slight improvement over doing it with a brother.

Dunno, she was pretty obsessed with the eggs, and tried to hatch them in the cookfire. I'm about to do a reread, I'll let you know if I change my mind. :P

A first cousin would be an improvement to a brother, but seeing that Lancel is a scrawny teenage boy really diminishes the level of improvement. Ewww. :unsure: :lol:

Don't get me wrong, despite my general dislike for Jamie's behavior and the fact that he is her twin brother, I can't deny the guy is good looking, but I have to say that seeing her first cousin that way, made me think he was more of a man than I thought. This whole time I thought here is another character who needs to man up...and suddenly there he is with Cersie, which wasn't exactly what I meant, but perhaps he will come into his own and not turn out to be such a wet rag after all...because I do have empathy for him, if only he could find some potential.

Hey! Sorry I didn't join into the discussion or write my regular recap. Was in the middle of dealing with a move. Anyway, I'm not going to repeat what everyone else has said here, but I too REALLY enjoyed the finale. It was a fantastic epilogue for most characters, with Daenerys driving the rest of the story.

Let me know what you think! PM me, or maybe we'll start a Book 1 discussion thread somewhere.

On a final note, since I was lame and didn't write recaps for episode 9/10, I was wondering if anyone was still interested in Book --> Screen comparison articles. I was planning on first tackling some character alterations (namely, some of their motivations and characterizations, specifically starting with Sansa and Daenerys). Anyone interested?

Yes, I would love that.
