They rendered the birth scene quite spookily.

*waves* Hi Roose!

Glad to see Tywin again. I missed having him on the show.

Joffrey is such a little shit.

I liked how Tyrion made that knight (sorry, bad with names) go from cocky and rude to kissing his ass in the span of a couple minutes.

I haven't read the books but I've always liked Charles Dance. That birth scene was crazy, they've handled magic interestingly on ths show.

Excellent. Relentlessly grim, but excellent.

Great job on the birthing scene. They pulled it off better than I could have imagined.

.. and rest assured, they will continue to do so. "Magic" is certainly real in this story, but you can be sure that this is not heading down typical fantasy roads.

What exactly happened with the birth? I haven't read the books so it's kind of confusing.

Holy crap, this episode was disturbing and brutal. Joffrey channeling Caligula, amputation, brutal torture, heads on spikes, weird birth scene ...
You know the writer did a very good job turning the grimness factor to 11 when the most positive scene of the episode was Tywin saving the prisoners.

I love this show.

Ah, finally the real origin of Lost's smoke monster. Damn, that birth scene was creepy as hell though not as creepy as Joffrey. What a sadistic little fucked up piece of shit he is. He should've been smothered at birth. I hope he dies an extremely long and painful death after being tortured for a week or two.

The one doing the whipping is the queen whore at littlefingers, Roz. She's been seen with Tyrion, Theon, Maester Pycelle, LittleFinger, and almost took Jon Snows virginity. She's like the Forrest Gump of prostitutes. "Life is like a box of chocolates, it's only a matter of time before it all ends up in your mouth." The whore du jour.

The other one I'm pretty sure we've seen before also. She may have been one of the whores with Robert, or actually maybe one of the whores in Winterfell with Tyrion. I think in the commentary they mention that one of the actresses from that scene ends up re-used as a handmaiden in Kings Landing, so maybe that's her.

I said both those things to my wife as we watched.
