Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

I am still in book 3. I have to give Martin credit. Even when I know what is going to happen (my friends have big mouths), he keeps the how very interesting.

The way Jamie's hand was cutoff was great stuff. Plus, I am really loving the Brienne and Jamie interactions. They are now with Roose Bolton.

Question - When Tywin shows Tyrion those blades he has made for Jamie and Joff, is that the remnants of Ice? (I just finished that section, and I wonder where Tywin got the steel?)

The old Bear's death was sad. But, it seems some of the Black Brothers are putting things together. It is unfortunate in that it appears no one will help them.

Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

yeah those swords were reforged from the Stark family blade
I think later on you'll be satisfied with who ends up with one of them

Slightly older than I'd have opted for but Hinds in anything can only be for the good.

Funny how a lot of people were hoping for James Purefoy, who was Marc Anthony to his Caesar in Rome.

A bit old for the role, but should be good

Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

I think Mance is older than people realize; at his first appearance it's noted that his hair is mostly gray. Which would probably happen at a younger age in Westeros than in our world, but in appearance terms I think Hinds is about right. As George R. R. Martin once pointed out, Sean Bean is about fifteen years older than Ned Stark, but as far as the effects of the aging process, they're still arguably comparable.

^Yeah, the Bean/ Stark (who is described in GOT as being 35) age gap did occur to me after I posted my previous post.

I haven't gotten to anything involving Raydar in the books, but anytime a cast member from Rome is involved in something it doesn't hurt.

Mance Rayder appears far earlier in the books than you think.
