If Margery didn't have her fun bags out all the time I think people would have a different opinion

I don't see much appeal in Margery.

Definitely think Ygritte is the hottest.

Is it because she's a dirty girl?

I think it is because she isn't a stuck up, prim and proper noble person. It doesn't hurt that she grinded up on John Snow the first night they knew each other. Even if it was with an alterior motive in mind.

Is this another thread where anonymous dudes on the internet get to claim that they totally don't find some actress attractive, but in real life she would never give them the time of day?

I hope so, because I totally do not find Robb Stark's wife attractive.

Super big spoiler...do not read, if you haven't read the books...

Spoiler:
I haven't read the books, but in reading reviews of the show online and comments on said reviews, I've (unfortunately) found out what goes down with Robb...which makes her unattractiveness more galling. You're really willing to screw up everything for her?

That's a rather huge spoiler. Might want to disclaim it...

Didn't that already happen in the show? Or does something else/worse happen?

Spoilers never bother me. I end up clicking on them anyway, then I'll search the internet for mor infor on said spoiler and I'll watch the episode anyway to see what or how things happen

To me that spoiler doesn't reveal anything that hasn't already happened, unless like I said, something else happens.

Looks like it was a bad idea to make my prior post...sorry about that. I was under the impression that most people posting in here had read the books and knew way more about the plot than me.

Again, the bath scene was better on screen like when Dany buyed the Unsullied.

Spoiler:
it would be awesome if some Red priest(ES) makes his gold hand into a real hand in future books. I don't think he will be a great lefty

One thing that has been bothering me since last season...
Spoiler:
Why are they going to such great lengths to make everyone aware that Bran and Rickon are still alive? This is one change that doesn't make any sense to me. The apparent death of Bran and Rickon play a huge part in the actions/motivations of other characters.

The biggest is that Catelyn goes **** when she hears about them and releases the Kingslayer in hopes of getting her daughters back. It is a lot more plausible than they way it goes down on the show. Yeah, she still releases him because she wants her daughters back, but her motivation is much weaker.

There's also silly things like showing Theon killing all the ravens so no one can find out. We have the Blackfish telling Catelyn that Robb beleives they're alive so she has to believe they're alive... More recently Theon admits to Ramsay that they are alive. I don't know where that is going to go, but it's miles away from the actual story and I don't see why.

For a show where main characters can die at any time and is filled with sex and violence... is the apparent death of 2 kids really too much for people to handle?

I haven't minded a lot of their changes, but this one gnaws at me for whatever reason...

Not my favorite episode, but the way this season has been, it's hard to top the next episode every week.

Spoiler:
Had my doubts, but it looks like we will see Sam the Slayer.
