    Yeah, I figured from the get go she could understand them but it was still fun to see it all play out.

    No, that talk isn't in the books.

    Neither Varys nor Olenna are POV characters, so we wouldn't have seen any talks between them in the books.

    Anything that takes place without one of the POV characters present (Which would be Jon, Catelyn, Bran, Arya, Sansa, Sam, Dany, Theon, Davos, Tyrion & Jaime at this point I'm not mistaken) would be either assumptions made from their later conversations or invented for the show.

    The non-POV moments the show has made are pretty good. I loved that bit with Robert and Cersei in Season One.

    They're about 50/50 in my book. More than a few have been really quite awful.

    I thought this was the best one this season so far. Great ending and great politics.

    I don't recall the box wizard from the books at all, correct me if I'm wrong. Not that I'd put anything past Varys so it seems quite plausible.

    Awesome episode. Loved every moment between varys and queen of thorns. And the ending was just brilliant.

    The ending was obvious but awesome. That whole storyline had me waiting for the other shoe to drop, and boy, did it ever drop.

    I never saw the ending coming when I read the book, it was fantastic.

    This was an awesome episode. And I haven't read any of the books.

    Theon is royally screwed. I loved how Tywin slapped Cersei down. Dany is proving to be someone you don't mess with. She's more dangerous than her brother could have been if not simply because she's a helluva lot smarter and clear headed. I look forward to whatever Tyrion will do.

    Well, to be fair she has a lot more backup. She even admitted that the main difference is that she has the power of the dragons to help her, while Viserys had no one and nothing.

    I can only imagine what HE'D do with the power of 3 dragons behind him though...ugh.

    I've rewatched the episode for the third time (thank you OCS On Demand!) and I've just noticed how the transitions between each scene was so perfect:
    Jaime in the dark >transition> Cersei in the candle light.
    Cersei and Tywin discussing the Tyrell problem >transition> the Queen of Thorns
    Olenna and Varys discussing Sansa >transition> Sansa and Maergery.
    And so on...

    One of my faves was in the Season 2 finale, when Stannis and Melisandre gaze into the fire it cuts right to Theon sitting next to one at Winterfell.

    Great episode. Loved the "what's in the box" scene.

    Noticed they didn't us a shot of the mad king statue. Might we be seeing him in flashback in future?

    ^Didn't they film Ned's dad and brother being roasted in the Throne Room but have never shown it?
