    We could tell you from how it was explained in the books, but you'll just shrug it off and say it doesn't count because it's from the books and not the show.

    Then why ask the question. You've seen the show, make up your own mind.

    For the record, she fancies the pants off him.

    it's great not grate (a grate is a metal structure over a hole or opening)

    and yeah, we can tell you what's in the book but if all that counts for you is what you see on the show then it really does no good for us to tell you. I suggest you make up your own mind or get and read the books if you want more insight.

    My point is this: the books are not fan fiction. The show is based (and not all that loosely) on the books. If someone chooses not to read the books and relies completely on the show for the source material, then the answers they seek to these types of questions will never hold any merit to them. Therefore, there is no reason to answer them. If you're asking the question, then you're seeking another's wisdom on the subject. Those of us who have read the books know the answers - or at least generally agree on what the answer should be.

    Saying the books are not a valid source is like saying that scenes in the bonus material which expand on the back story that were clipped due to time and budgetary constraints are not valid. Also, if a director mentions in the DVD bonus material what his intentions were with a scene or collection if scenes, do you summarily dismiss him because that point didn't get across to you on-screen?

    The show is so close to the actual source material that if a question is asked, the answer given by those of us who have read it should suffice without it turning into a troll-fest. The alternative is that we simply ignore your questions because we assume you'll never accept the answer.

    Don't ask the question if you don't want to hear the answer. People answering the question then getting argued with and told 'no, that wasn't in the show so it doesn't count'....beyond frustrating.

    I know there are people watching that haven't read the books. I was one of them last year. And I know this by reading predictions of who'll survive to the end that contain characters I know are dead in the books

    the books will ALWAYS contain more info than the show. Always. there is insight and 'behind the scenes' info that's written into the thousands of pages that'll never make it onto the show. On the other end, we've started to see scenes in the show that weren't in the book. And we've seen and likely will continue to see scenes that were written from one character's POV in the book that are written differently for the show. Artistic license.

    Just why ask the question if all you seem to really want to do is argue about the answer.

    From what I understand George RR Martin is quite involved in the show. He even did one of the commentaries... and I just looked it up....

    He's even writing one of the episodes for the 3rd season, so yes, very involved.

    I know that, and you know that. However slimjim doesn't want info gleaned from any source other than the show. He/she refuses to accept it and said as much on other threads. *shrug*

    Default I’m I the only one who thinks Theon seems a bit like a TV character from the 1970s?

    It’s not a bad thing it’s just that there’s something about his appearance and his mannerisms that puts me in mind of films like say..... A Clockwork Orange or Scum

    Well Alfie Allen looks a bit like a young Malcolm McDowell.
