    HBO is starting to re-run season 2 in anticipation. After each episode is a little snippet/preview for season 3. What I liked the best about the one this past week was the discussion from everyone about how excited they all are this season - that basically this is the season they have been waiting to make since they started filming.

    In my copy, Jaime loses his hand on p. 297. The Red Wedding chapter ends on p. 705 and Joffrey's death is p. 830. Those last two, which I think are the MAJOR events in books 3 (that's saying A LOT, since so much happens), are well past the halfway point, so I keep wondering what they're going to finish the season with.

    Considering how epic books 4 and 5 are AND the fact that the action in those books (except for the last, what 150+ pages of book 5) runs concurrently, I wonder if they'll just abandon the time table with season 4 and just start in with books 4 and 5 instead of ending the season where book 3 ends. Seems like a smarter plan to me.

    I've watched season 2 several times OnDemand in the last few months. I can't wait until HBO decides to run the episodes. I want to watch it when I want!

    I still think this season will end with the RW. Some of the stuff from book 3 started getting pulled into the end of last season (Rob's wedding). I think some of the stuff might end up a bit out of order from the 3rd book, so that they can end the season with the RW. JMO.


    I agree with you on books 4 and 5. I just figured they would basically combine them, since they are really running at the same time, just different POV's on certain events and what is happening.

    Re: Game of Thrones on HBO

    Don't know a thing about the book, nor am I interested. However, I love me some Emilia Clarke!

    Emilia Clarke for Anastasia Steele


    We’ve heard so much lately about the candidates for Christian Grey, but what about for Anastasia Steele? The headlines are all about Ian Somerhalder and Henry Cavill, but what about the blue-eyed beauty who’ll get to submit to Christian Grey in the red room of pain?

    Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke is one of the top favorites for the part of Anastasia Steele, and while many of us know her as the feisty, platinum blonde from Game of Thrones, in real life she’s a bubbly, petite brunette who we definitely could imagine in the role of Anastasia Steele.

    One source arguing the case for her casting told Gather, “She’s young, talented, petite, big eyes, great body, delicate features etc… all the things Christian loves about Ana.”

    Emilia Clarke has admitted that she’s not a huge fan of doing nude work, but she has taken the clothes off when the work requires it. In the Game of Thrones she plays Daenerys Targaryan and has definitely shown a lot of flesh more than once. She’s no stranger to these types of scenes when they require this in the movies, so we don’t see why she would balk at playing Ana.
    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    Fun to see Conleth Hill (Varys) on the season finale of Suits tonight, not only in a suit, but also with (at least a little) hair!

    Is it only for phones? I have an iPad but not an iPhone.

    Re: Game of Thrones on HBO

    I just went and looked and it is for iPad too. It's called Game of Thrones: Ice and Fire. It's from HBO.

    ETA: I'll admit I did freak out one morning a while back when I woke up and it said "....so in The North" and it was snowing! It hardly ever gets that cold here!
